Now I should totes be sleeping right now as I write this, but I wanted to type this up in the hopes that it will get something accomplished.
Ask me what my favorite comic book company is and I’ll tell you Marvel. Then DC. No order specifically like when I was younger, but I’ve grown to enjoy both universes not only because of the books, but the rp’ers that I’ve met during my time on Twitter.
When I came in I was following the bells of a fantastic Harley Quinn rp’er, and decided to try and make an OC since a lot of of the canon characters were either taken or too tough for me. I didn’t think of my OC being considered a DC since we were rping with Marvel characters as well, and it kind of got on my nerves to get mixed in like that at first. But now it doesn’t bother me at all, since I know I enjoy both ‘verses.
There are moments when sometimes I don’t remember certain events or exact details of characters, and I feel kind of awkward. But I feel like it gives me a chance to learn about what I missed and get familiar with it, which will get conversations started.
The point of this that I’m trying to make is that even if that bit of awkwardness appears, don’t let it stop you from joining in and talking with those you’ve gotten to know pretty well. Don’t feel like you have to stay on one side of the fence, when you can just jump into the middle of the yard. Just think of it as learning about something new. Because you’ll never know what could develop from a simple friendship, to a loving relationship.
You guys are all awesome to me. I could care less which universe you represent. Because I’m biuniversal.
When Rion doesn’t troll me, he speaks the truth.
When he’s not getting shot.
Honestly, for all my “Not a Marvel” speak, it’s just a joke to me, since I am obviously very much interested in Marvel (Spoiler Alert?). It’s not even that I know DC more, it’s that I know the BATFAMILY, who happens to be DC. Seriously, I know Gotham City. I don’t know Metropolis. (And hated all things Super until SOMEONE made me start really liking Superboy, dammit)
I’m glad I fell into a group so open to both sides and ones that are willing to share their interests with me and are interested in mine as well. I’m glad I can share the Gotham-love and am thankful they shared their X-Genes with me. And maybe some Avenger nonsense.
