Who said that I was sacrificing my own enjoyment by doing any of those things? My fun isn’t so fragile that it’s destroyed the moment I take a single step outside of my comfort zone. Besides, if they adhere to my definition of a good roleplayer, they’re more likely to take my preferences as a roleplayer into consideration, which leads to us finding a middle ground that we can both enjoy.
Or maybe I think that a compelling story can only be crafted with someone that I am able to respect and who respects me in turn. If either party lacks consideration for the other, that’s going to hurt the quality of any story that’s produced.
You’re welcome to disagree. After all, this thread’s about the subjective definition of ‘good rp.’
