tarnera: (Firefly - Where's my town?)
I recently encountered something in the RP world. I was talking with a random person on Plurk; they seemed interested in the fact that I'm considering picking up Train Heartnet of Black Cat as a muse. Soon after, they friended me on Plurk, and I thought nothing of it--just someone who shares a common interest with me, wanting to talk more. So I went to friend them back.

But before I could, they pinged me on AIM. And as I was using Meebo at the time, their IM went through without the service asking me if I want to accept it.

Now, to clarify... I do not post my contact info anywhere, or at least I thought I hadn't. I hadn't told this person my AIM name. Upon my asking her how she got it, she said she'd gone into one of my character journals and pulled it off one of the apps I had posted there. I had not intended that to be a contact info post; in fact, I had intended to delete that part of the app, and I did soon after. But the simple fact that she had looked up my character in this game, gone into said character's journals, and looked through them on the off chance I might have contact info somewhere in there...

Personally, I find this rather creepy, disturbing, and stalker-ish. But she seemed nice enough, so I tried to ignore the feelings in favor of talking with her about this particular game.

However, last night one of the mods at a game I play at was approached in much the same manner. Someone had seen her around LJRP, gone into her character journal, and pulled the info off a game app that was never intended to be a contact post. The mod in question had, just like I had, intended to remove this info, and had simply forgotten about it, being both a mod and busy with RL as well.

But the real issue of this situation? Is that the mod Plurked about it. And several people, including myself, weighed in, saying how they also found it creepy, and that was all fine and dandy. But then other people turned up. People who said things like 'There's nothing wrong with people IMing out of the blue!' and 'RP is a collaborative thing' and 'What, do you not want people to talk to you?' ...and basically making me feel like I was being attacked for my very reasonable, imo, attitude.

I'm not saying people can't talk to me. But there are so many ways to do that--all of my journals are able to accept PMs, I have many superfluous journal posts, such as an HMD, IC voicemail, and others that they could easily have commented to. Heck, they could have waited the two seconds it took me to friend them back on Plurk--I was going to, since I did recognize their Plurk name. Furthermore, I don't protest if game-mates contact me this way, since game-contact info is there for a reason. But this person I had talked to for maybe two seconds chose to go in, find my info in a way I was not expecting, and AIM me without even asking.

I ask you, f-list. Is this normal? Am I being unreasonable and bitchy? Or do I have every right to be upset that someone did this?

Because I am upset. So upset that I am now considering changing my AIM name, which is sad because I've had that one forever and all my RL friends know it. But this series of events has made it difficult for me to keep using it--especially since the person who contacted me is on invisibly most of the time, so I'll never know if she's there or not.

EDIT: Since posting this, I have blocked the person on AIM and defriended them from my Plurk. This is, perhaps, a hasty way to deal.... but I was honestly so upset at the time I wasn't thinking all that clearly. I just wanted some space to feel comfortable again.

Because I can.

And because just about all of the people who have my journal friended are either not gamers or not in any of my games...

I have lately been reading a book called Incarceron, by Catherine Fisher. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes... idk what genre of book this is. But I highly recommend it all the same.

Anyway, I bring it up because I really really want a game based on this world. Specifically, the Prison aspect of it.

Here's how I think it would work...

Scum, Civicry: Most of the people in the Prison. These are people born there, who have lived their whole lives there. They would need to be NPC's or possibly AU's, of course. OC's would also work.

Civicry - More-or-less civilized people who live in bands, traveling around the Prison. They have the best food, a basic monetary system, clothing.

Scum - Like what their name implies, they tend to live off others. Ambushing the Civicry to sustain themselves, so on and so forth.

Prisoners: The Prison hasn't had new Prisoners for a long time, but now for some reason they're turning up. These would be AU's, OU's, or OC's who were for some unexplained reason transported here.

Cellborn: Now this is why I want this to be a game. The Cellborn are created by the Prison. They are born of it; they have no name but what the Prison gave them, no memories before waking in their cell. They can be born any age. However... they receive images, visions that the Prisoners say are the Prison communicating with the Cellborn. The visions seem familiar to the Cellborn, like they are something from their past, somehow forgotten...

The Cellborn may try to claim they're really from Outside. But everyone knows the Cellborn are crazy. Any visions they receive will most likely be dismissed as insanity by the Prisoners.

So, OU's or OC's, memory-wiped.

The point of the game would be to try and escape the Prison, of course. But never forget, Prisoners... the Prison is alive. And it is watching you.

I have NO IDEA how this game would work, and I know I would make a terrible mod. Lol. But I... I really, really want it to, now.

My paid acct ran out. Blah.

Oh well, I don't exactly have the money for it right now anyway, and since I only use it, like, once a month if that it's really not worth the expense.

Anyway... it is long past time I posted some of the songs I have floating around for my various RP characters. I want to put them in a place I can find them again easily, because lol, memory like a freaking goldfish.

Courtesy cut, this post may nom your RAM. )

Heh, my dad expressed concern yesterday about the time I spend on my computer. He said he was worried I was getting addicted to the internet. I almost laughed in his face... not because he was wrong, but because I wanted to say 'no, I'm addicted to roleplaying, and LJ a bit.' He wasn't happy that I was amused at his concern, but oh well.

So today I barely got on at all. Mostly, I packed boxes.

I've been dreading this day for a while, really... the day I had to start packing up my room. Man... I knew I had a lot of stuff, but wow do I have a lot of stuff! I'm really not sure how I can possibly pack it all in boxes by Wednesday (which is when we're painting my room), but at least I have most of my books packed. When I complained to Dad that I wanted to keep some out to read, he told me to keep three and buy more if I run out. I told him that defeated the purpose of packing all my books.

My room is going to look so empty without bookshelves. It's already starting to look like it isn't mine.

We also finally moved all the furniture, which is kind of a pain because now I have nowhere to put my socks and stuff. But at least we're making progress... it's strange. I've had that dresser my whole life, and we just gave it to the Good Will. I sort of wonder if I'll miss it, as crappy as it was.

Going through all my stuff is like a flashback on my life... I discovered some old notes from the time I was at Bradley University, that a friend and I had written back and forth to each other during our biology class. I laughed so much... I miss her. I also found my frikin' Japanese/English dictionary that I've been missing for 6 months, gah. I'm SO HAPPY I found it, but annoyed that it took such an extreme clean-up to uncover it. I need to have a better system than the 'drop things on the floor' method, clearly.

We're hoping to have the house finished and on the market by early June, if not sooner, and that's about when I'll move to Souix Falls.

Man. Less than a month. How did that happen so fast?
