Genuinely love that you keep getting huge nerds to blather on about their fave thing and just cut to the end.

The best part of this episode was Julia's complete bafflement over the concept of freeform roleplay.

Yeah, this broke me up, because this shit is absolutely archetypal freeform roleplay. I spent far too much of my youth playing games that were largely indistinguishable from this, including the "write up an application and the moderators will yell at you if it seems too powerful" thing, and definitely the guys who made totally antisocial characters and then just sort of... wrote at each other without ever interacting? Olivine and Morion just kinda posting without ever having a character interaction brought back a lot of memories, I'm just saying. It is honestly sort of reassuring to me that kids are still doing this dumb shit.

(Also, SPOILER WARNING: twentysomething women making twentysomething gay dudes to have gay sex are definitely not just having them rubbing up against each other and kiss. Maybe The Kids These Days are chaster, but the people I knew back in the day were, let's say, extremely detailed.)

I'm familiar with their details. They may as well just write "and then they rubbed up against each other and kiss" for as familiar they are with what two men do together. It's the female ga[y]z(e?).

Also it is the Steven Universe fandom. They're very... Soft.

Sure, that's fair. I'm not saying they're remotely accurate, either in terms of real-world behavior or even in terms of anatomical plausibility, because those are definitely not the case. Just... often there are very elaborate ideas, is all.

Also, I am 100% calling Morion as a "teenage boy trying to make a coolguy" character, not "girl/woman trying to make a sexyguy" character. (Serendibite could be either.) Both of them have a really bad case of "I need to load my coolguy/sexyguy down with ~flaws~ to make sure the mods let me play the character, and they should somehow all be flaws that make it impossible for the character to functionally interact" syndrome, though.

Morion is def a guy. I was mostly making a joke.

Forum roleplay definitely isn't as good as d&d as someone who has done both. Additionally, I'd rather be a DM than a forum moderator as someone who has done both.
