It’s hard to believe I’ve finally debuted my first appearance on social media. On a fetish forum no less.
I was a lurker here for a few years now. I’ve sunk my time and my money into what this forum has provided for free, so I figured it’s my turn to bring something to the table. My alias here is Bittersweet, and it will remain such while interacting with this piece of myself on other sides of the internet, such as Discord. I find it difficult to admit something so private as “personal taste” with strangers; even now I’m having trouble physically typing the words “Weight Gaming” while writing this for some reason.
I’m not sure how many of you realize this, but we make art here. I truly believe everything produced on this forum is a work of art that is tragically shunned by an audience deserving of its praise. I plan on utilizing my talents as a writer to express my formal criticisms on some of my favorite pieces. (Nothing mean, I promise.) I only wish to properly celebrate the things created here, and hopefully inspire future works of a similar caliber.
My goals are threefold
- Celebrate works of art and provide insight where I feel is most necessary.
- Flex my talents as a writer and editor in case I can somehow lend a generous hand to the creators. Think of my essays like a résumé.
- Interact with the good people of Weight Gaming.
Allow me to drop the act a little. My previous attempts at connecting with strangers have been met with neglect not just from others, but from myself as well. Every time I start something with a group of people, it ends in a shallow grave.
First D&D group? Blew up.
Friends? Moved away.
Relationships? You’re joking.
I don’t want to make a big deal about it, but this has always been a constant problem for me. This is my first earnest attempt at making connections and I want it to be special, so I’m asking you, the reader, for a favor:
Do not kill this thread.
I know, the introduction board is a lousy place for this kind of discussion; it’s just full of strangers greeting each other and disappearing as fast as they’ve arrived. I want to change that; I want to talk to you about whatever it is you want to talk about. Here, I’ll start with a few questions of my own.
Who are you? Who do you believe yourself to be on the inside? Am I speaking to the real you or are you wearing a disguise too?
What do you do? I’m not interested in hearing about your job unless you are passionate about it; I want to know what you enjoy doing, even if it isn’t profitable.
Who is, in fact, the best girl? Or boy? Or none of the aforementioned genders?
Do you have a favorite artist in general? Could be music, visual media, or anything really. Even fetish artists since it seems to be appropriate here.
Who do you main? This applies to pretty much any video game you play.
I am looking for an RP server, do you have a suggestion? Now, I’ve never actually done this sort of thing so I’m looking for something with implied themes rather than full on ERP.
OCs? Might as well mention them, right?
I’ll try to respond to as many comments as possible to keep the discussion alive, but don’t feel pressured to answer all these questions. Again, I’m not expecting this thread to go anywhere so don’t feel beholden to it. It’s only an introduction to anyone concerning themselves. If you’ve made it this far into the post, you have my thanks. I hope we’ll meet again somewhere around here.
