I will let you know if everything looks good with your entry, and you will be entered into the raffle.

The winner will be chosen via random number generator. I would love to do it based off of whose response was the most heartfelt, but I just don't have the time to judge entries alone. <3

Roleplaying has created wonderful memories for me since I was at least fourteen. The very first story I ever had the courage to join molded my abilities to write, to learn and to see the world I was put in so clearly. It set me behind a new pair of eyes and to walk on feet that I was not born with. A personality that was on a different spectrum far away from my own. I felt joy as my character lived as if I was just watching her. She made her own decisions and lived life according to how she was born and sometimes in ways that were not; just as we do in our own lives. I remember the excitement of getting on my computer, out of breath as I ran to the house from the bus. I was barely able to hit the power button in my haste to see if my writing partner was on.

I will never forget my first story, and I often wish I could go back with the lessons and betterment of my writing abilities today to see how much further- how much grander the roleplay could have been. Now writing has a new meaning, but always the same feeling as it had before. It helps bring me from the real life and it also helps boost my creativity. My art has improved because I have learned that the people, animals, and objects are not just pictures from pencil and paper or otherwise. It is a representation of a character of my own design and in the created world it/they are just as real as myself. Each taking a piece of me and developing it into a whole. It is a blessing to have this in my life. To share with others something that would otherwise be a lonely person writing a book that would have never ended. We only have to play our part and watch the beauty unfold from another.

My interest in writing has existed since I was a child in elementary school. Writing stories about legendary heroes that followed the format of the comics that my grandfather had stored away in his home. He gave them to me when I was old enough to appreciate them, and I was in love with the idea behind these sorts of stories. I followed in the footsteps of the late Stan Lee, and started writing my own comics about heroes of my very own. Though I hardly ever shared these tales with anyone outside of my family, and I showed them as little as I could. When my family bought a computer, I made my first yahoo account so I could play Runescape. In those days it was the best way to escape from the real world into a great fantasy realm. There it was roleplay servers and meeting people from all over the country who had the same drive. Weeks of stock trading, and fishing for lobsters gave me the money to play the roles of many a character. Who's stories I wrote out in a notebook that I kept to myself. When I was in middle school, I learned of the works of Tolkien and Martin. Doing my best to read such things, but adults kept me away from the Song of Ice and Fire, and the extravagant detail of Tolkien bored me. So instead I started to write my own tales, baseing many of my early stories off the works of Bram Stoker, and Mary Shelley. Playing games like Final Fantasy over the years gave me a vocabulary that was above most of my classmates, and it was easy to find an english teacher that was interested in fantasy writing. It wasn't until I was in High School that I finally read those greater stories, and with them found the great tales of the Norse and Greeks. Following this I fell into the Vibrant world of D&D. Ever since I've been designing entire worlds and cultures for use in the game, often working for hours on backstories of characters that didn't matter. All for the chance that my players might run into them. Assuming the roles of some of the most kind peasants, and the most terrible rulers. It gave me great perspective for my writing, and did nothing more than increase my skill and drive to write.

After graduating I would find this website.... A lovely place full of lovely people... An environment that fuels the creative minds of thousands of folks. Bringing together such wonderful story tellers, and some even greater listeners. Not just writers, but artists and actors gather here as well. It was here that I met a woman, who's name I won't disclose. She answered a story post by chance that I had written 2 years ago in October. Through that story post, we started Rping together, and after a week I had her in tears. Ever since we've been talking to each other everyday, and had an rp running constantly. Sometimes two or three at a time. I don't think I ever would have found this woman if it wasn't for this place, and I don't think I would be the man that I am today without her. If you're reading this, you know who you are. You know I care so very much about you, and I hope that someday we can be together. That little lady happens to be a fantastic artist, and I'd love to see the things she can create with the right tools. This is for her. :3

I'm not entering, but this is a really awesome giveaway and I think some people on my friends list might be interested in participating! So I'm just signal boosting with this post. Thank you! :D

I'd like to enter both if that's okay? Anyway, RP has affected me most importantly in the areas of writing, art, and of characterization. Before RP, I never had reason to write or improve my art besides just wanting to... But after RP, it made me get more serious about those three things, and each improved greatly, to a point where I now have a job as an illustrator (which is why I'm entering, because right now I'm using a glitchy, crashy iPad) and have a future in writing. I owe all of that to my patient RP partners and friends, who help shape my characters and writing in the same why drawing tutorials shape your art style: You take bits and pieces of the things you love to make something wholly yours. My writing has gone from awkward, stiff, and full of inhibition to a weird comedy-gothic-fluid style that I wouldn't change for anything! Thank you all my RP partners, you've created something that I can be proud of at last <3. I tend to be very down on myself, but writing is the one thing I have a hard time knocking myself on because the style is always changing and evolving, getting better.


Another way RP has helped my writing is by giving me the ability to write a final paper in 4 hours. But that's not something I'm supposed to admit, huh? I have a couple more final papers to use that trick on, both due tomorrow, both I have not started yet. So thank y'all for that ability again. Insert thumbs up here.

@Light_Of_Love and @SleekJackal

added you both, thanks~!
