Hoot! Looks like someone left a note for you:

Kid characters are tricky to write. There’s always a balance to strike between capturing that unique sense of reckless childhood innocence, and the intelligence and self-possession with which most kids handle themselves. You carry that well with Asriel, and it makes him feel a lot more real for it. I haven’t had a chance to read Rail’s threads yet, but I suspect they’re equally quality. best goatchild

I'm concerned about how insular you are with Mettaton, and that the only time you've shown the slightest interest in RPing with me, a castmate who isn't Mettaton, is when Sans had the potential to victimize Asriel, for shiggles.

This also isn't a single instance, either, but a pattern of behavior I noticed across your other games together, evidenced by yours and Kitten's numerous plurks about your struggles to get CR and make AC with anyone besides each other.

If you guys prefer to tag each other almost exclusively, that's fine, I enjoy PSLs too, but this game's progression relies really heavily on players being inclusive and interactive. And, personally, I find the exclusivity really unwelcoming as a castmate.

I want to start this off by saying that I've enjoyed playing with you in the past. However, the more I've interacted with you, the more glaring certain issues have become that have made things extremely discouraging to try and maintain CR with you. I'll do my best to be as succinct across all points as possible:

1) Overstretching
You are in a lot of games, my friend. There's nothing wrong with that provided you can handle the workload, but based on how inconsistent tagbacks are from you, it doesn't feel like you are. You frequently comment on plurk that you feel detached from proceedings in games you're in, and I think part of that might be that you're stretched so very thin. I would heavily recommend dropping a few games until you can manage your load better.

2) Selectiveness
It's gotten increasingly obvious to me that you tend to prioritize certain players and castmates in your tagging. The most obvious of these is Kitten, who plays Mettaton in a lot of the same games you do, but castmates tend to get the same treatment, provided they're interesting enough. Oftentimes I see you top-leveling in games and then only tagging a few characters back once or twice, when you bother to at all. At the same time, you're talking about putting up a post or tagging into IC contact posts so you can keep tagging the castmates you're obviously prioritizing, wrapping thread after thread with them while you've left others with one or two tags that don't really go anywhere. I'm not sure if you need a threadtracker or if you excuse it by saying you'll backtag, but the bottom line is that you never really do. It's incredibly discouraging when trying to get CR with you, especially since you often express that you'd like more CR outside your cast or immediate friends, because it's obvious that people are biting. You're just not biting back. If you don't want to play with those people, either tell them upfront or take it to a musebox, because it's exceedingly apparent that you're here to play with certain scenarios that are extremely limiting and specific to those who are interested in CR with your characters. I'm not saying don't ever tag castmates or friends, but I think you should consider that in prioritizing them so heavily, you might be isolating others who are genuinely interested in having close CR with you.

3) Characterization
I can tell you have a lot of love for Undertale, and Asriel in particular, and that's great! When you play him, you often get his little kid voice down really well. However, it feels like a lot of key aspects of his character slide through the cracks...such as his time spent as Flowey the Flower. That character isn't actually separate from Asriel. His transgressions and murders and flaws are the same as Asriel's. His attitudes and speech patterns are very, very similar to Asriel's. I'd understand if this was just Asriel trying to cover things up and create a mental separation between himself and Flowey where none exists, but it really doesn't come across that way. It feels an awful lot like apologia for a character who's done some truly heinous things and shouldn't be excused for them.

I have enjoyed tagging with you, and I want to enjoy continuing to do so. But I do think you ought to seriously reconsider whether you're really here to play in games, or if your current playstyle is more suitable for memes and museboxes.

(P.S. Your post claims that anonymous is enabled but when I attempted to comment on it, it wouldn't let me, so here have a not!sock account instead)
