I am currently roleplaying as the most depressing character I hope to god I will ever take on, because I don’t think my heart can take anymore. She’s always been a sad person, but it just keeps getting worse (which is my fault because while I love angst, god knows I don’t know how to produce a happy ending). Now I just want someone to hug her and wrap her in a blanket and give her tea while she lets out all her feelings but that can’t happen.
Man, this. I can’t help but end up putting more stress on characters, and then before I know it, they’re taking on too much and either snapping or becoming super depressed. That’s actually happening to some of my characters right now; they’re starting to break.
