This is some information about this blog, my rules, and how I roleplay. I thought it was about time I wrote one of these things up. I have taken the time to watch classic who, new who, listen to the audios, and read some of the novels. I tend to sprinkle in all those things and consider it all canon. I have been roleplaying on this blog since 2011. This blog has been a huge part of my life for a long time. I'm a writer at heart. I love creating stories and exploring new worlds. Roleplaying has allowed me that since I have finished my novel. Hate of any kind won't be tolerated. You wouldn't like someone coming to you insulting the thing you love doing, would you? Don't do it to anyone else.
I have tons of headcanons that are linked for your convenience. There are also gifs, graphics, theories, and so much more that can be found on this blog. I have spent a very long time analysing and diving into the doctor completely. I have also dabbled with certain topics about Doctor Who or roleplayig in general and expanded upon it. As you can see, I'm rather obsessed haha. Anyway, I hope everyone who is following me enjoys their stay here on my crazy blog!
URL linking, thread replying, and general trying to contact me.
I know a lot of people have started linking someone's URL so it shows up in their activity page instead of tagging. It's perfect if you need to tag more than five people, but it just won't work for me due to clutter.
I really don't want to seem like I'm ignoring anyone so please tag my URL instead if you want me to see something. My tag isn't cluttered at all so I will see it.
On that note, I won't see thread replies on my activity page either so if you've replied to our thread pleeeaaase tag my url under the reply and if you want you can send me an ask, fanmail, or submit telling me that you replied. I also won't see the reply on my dash for this reason:
I follow that many blogs because when I started this blog I decided that I would follow back any roleplay blogs that follow me. I didn't expect to get many followers but despite the followers I have now I haven't changed my "following policy." I also follow some AMAZING david tennant and doctor who personal blogs.
So! Please utilize the taging system, askbox, and fanmail to get me to see things! I always feel like an ass when I find something a month+ later after it was posted. I /never/ ignore anyone. I just have loads of clutter. I LOVE YOU ALL I SWEAR.
Your icon moves! How did you do that?
Indeed it does! A year ago someone figured out a cheat to allow us to upload moving icons but sadly about a week later tumblr staff changed the way you upload icons, rendering this cheat impossible. I haven't found a way to do it again. I haven't changed my icon for a year. If I ever did I would lose my moving icon. I know some can see it but others say it doesn't move. That's because it works fine in firefox, internet explorer and safari but if you're a google chrome user you need to download this extension in order to see it.
Why do you continue to use regular gifs?
There are three reasons why I use regular gifs instead of icons or gif icons. It's because I'm an old tumblr roleplayer, because old habits die hard, and because I've spent far too long collecting gifs over these two years to start all over. The number of gifs I currently have are:
Can you imagine trying to make 19,757 gifs into gif icons? THAT WOULD BE A NIGHTMARE! I will never have the same amount of non-gif icons as I do gifs either.
However, please, please, please don't ever think that I will refuse to roleplay with you if you use icons or gif icons. Please do! I don't mind at all. You don't have to change your format either. I'm not picky about formats or the way you choose to roleplay. I hope my decision to keep up the old way of roleplaying doesn't stop you from roleplaying with me, but I understand if it's an annoyance.
How did you get a '.com' url?
I paid for it. Now, I imagine you're thinking I spent a lot of money in order to get a .com, but I didn't. I spent a little over a buck. Network solutions offers .com domains for really cheap if you are attaching it to a website like tumblr. If you're not willing to pay any money you can get a free domain here. After you've got a domain you just need to follow the instructions that tumblr offers here.
Why do you send fanmails after you've replied to a thread?
The fact is I get really busy with everything and it takes me awhile to reply. Sometimes it takes weeks or even up to a month. I know most of the people I roleplay with aren't refreshing my blog daily waiting for replies and sometimes the activity page is cluttered. I send people fanmails so they know I've replied. I've been doing this for almost a year. I just want to make sure everyone knows I've replied after a long period of silence. If you would prefer I don't do that please give me a heads up.
Are you fandom cross over friendly?
HELL YES. Even if I haven’t watched the show or seen the movie or read the book I will roleplay with you. I love interacting with everyone. OCs OF ANY FANDOM WELCOME. LOVE OCs
Do you like OCs?
THIS BLOG IS EXTREMELY OC FRIENDLY.
I love OCs like you don’t even know. It takes so much courage to make an OC. It takes so much creativity too. These people are amazing. They are writers at their best. Honestly, I admire them. They made their own creation and it is almost always wonderful.
However, you should be aware than unless you have spoken to me first, all children of the doctor and family members are not my doctor’s family/children. Future or not. It doesn’t mean I won’t roleplay with you. My Doctor is from a universe that isn’t the one he’s standing in when I roleplay with you. Therefore, he will default to saying you are a parallel world’s Doctor’s child. I’d love to roleplay with you regardless.
I have a list of people who are actually from his universe right here. If you would like to be added please askbox me.
How does this work you may ask? Well, I have an explanation on how the Doctor is from a parallel world, living in another.
It is called The Multiverse.
All information on the multiverse can be found here. <—-yes that is a link. CLICK IT.
Do you wanna roleplay?
SURE! It actually makes me giddy when someone asks this. Please just be aware that I am in college right now and I am very scatter brained. I am also known to write something that my partners call the “ryan novel.” If I go silent for a long period I am likely writing up one. A lot of times I forget to do replies after a day passes so shoot me a link.
What’s taking you so long to reply?
Usually I answer asks bottom to top. That means I answer the asks at the bottom of my askbox and work my way up. I find it’s the fairest way for people waiting. Paras I get lazy on but will answer once I can. Please know that I will often switch to para rp only and will not answer asks. It’s just easier on my one track mind.
Did my ask get eaten?
If I haven’t answered in several hours up to 24 hours up to a week depending on my IRL schedule, than yes unless I have stated a reason why I’m not answering asks. My askbox does get hungry from time to time. Also, sometimes tumblr doesn’t alert me to new asks so I need to refresh.
What's god modding?I will likely ignore anything and everything I consider god moding. Definition:
Pretty much, I won’t tolerate you attacking/injuring my character without my permission. You can write something like “I fire the gun” instead of “I shoot you in the shoulder.” Or “I go in for a punch” instead of “I punch you in the face.” It leaves me as a writer the chance to write in a reaction. Also, speaking for my character will be ignored. Don’t write “The Doctor walks up to me” because that is writing for my character and therefore, god moding. Only I can write what my character says and does.
