So it’s late and I can’t sleep, and I’m reading over the Feathermoon Forum, searching for either good RP or really good drama to take up some time while I attempt to find sleepiness. As expected, I find a few rather lengthy, tasty drama threads to occupy my time.
In one of those threads, a name comes up that seems familiar. Oddly familiar… and at first I can’t quite place it.
And then I remember.
Storytime for you all: the weirdest sex request I’ve run into in Warcraft!
Scene: Stormwind City, midafternoon
Characters: Annorah, level 20ish shaman, in ghost wolf form; (unnamed) female draenei that I’m going to refer to as Pat
Annorah had just gotten her ghost wolf form and (as is to be expected) was running around like a deranged puppy chasing after a crate of loose tennis balls. At this point, “Pat” walks up and begins to fawn all over the “cute cuddly puppy”.
I play along a bit, thinking that this is rather strange, especially considering all her tells are peppered with references in *asterisk emotes* to how beautiful she is ( WEIRDOMETER: 1). Eventually, I shift out. And then her tells begin to take a different tone… this one about how beautiful Annorah is (WEIRDOMETER 2).
Note: At this level, Annorah’s flag RSP very clearly stated that her face was still rather charred up from the Exodar explosion. Pat also was running flagRSP, with a description about how young and pretty she was, and her wanting to be someone’s pet (WEIRDOMETER 3).
Annorah mentions something casually about how it’s unusual that someone wouldn’t notice the burn scars all over her face, and her sewn-shut eye. Pat responds with something equally fluffy, and then says that “everyone has their uglinesses, even me, but you can’t see that yet” (WIERDOMETER 4). And she begins to ask me what The Light thinks about “abnormalities” (WEIRDOMETER 5).
At this point, it’s probably better to cut to the end of the scene, post explanation of the Elements and my wierdometer flashing like fireworks on the 4th of July. The end result was my character getting propositioned for openly-hermaphroditic Draenei sex.
Now, as I’m sure you all know if you’ve been reading here long, I’m a big fan of RP and really enjoy developing my characters’ personalities and learning about them through game interaction. But, really? *really*? And, to be perfectly honest, I don’t really have an issue with ERP, as long as I don’t have to see it. What you do in tells is your business (and I won’t deny sending my husband a few eyebrow-raising ones in the past). However, out in public places – with RSP tags that BOTH FACTIONS can read? Ugh.
Anyway – that’s a soapbox for another day.
**And since it bears saying – I may be remembering this character’s (real) name wrong, or it may be just very very close to the name of the character I interacted with, so I have refrained from linking to the thread OR mentioning said person’s character name here. The whole thing was just too much of a coincidence to not trip the “WTF meter”, and either way, I think it makes for a pretty good story!
