[Crowd's applause grows louder as an unidentifiable person walks onto stage]
I still hate writing these things. I never know what to say about myself. Maybe it's a privacy issue I have or maybe I just think I'm boring. I go by Silent everywhere else but here, so just call me Ravine. My history with RPing is a rough one: I started out like three or four years ago on some random forum that wasn't even about RP.
The moderators hated us all because we'd clog other things up and what not. (Also note: this is where my hobby of writing stems from) I'm pretty sure I was the worst writer there at the time, but I was both the most active and most popular one there, mostly due to the fact that I was young and had nothing to do ever. About after a year and a half later, when I finally started having standards of writing and I was getting better at it, I went out with a bang. There were many bans to be had. I appealed to one of my best friends at the time, an admin, and I was un-banned. Unfortunately for everyone involved, I finally realized the point of why I did any of it: I was totally sick of everyone on that site. And I, sick of the drama and people, cussed out a few people and left forever. I occasionally look back at the forums and feel a slight tinge of nostalgia. The forums are basically dead, whatever activity left is composed of mediocrity.
After a year went by, I finally decided to get back into RPing. I tried a lot to start with a bunch of different sites, but none really worked. I gave up and started writing free-style. Recently I started writing my first novel and trying to get better at drawing. The latter isn't going very well. About a week ago I thought to myself that the reason I couldn't get back into RPing was that I lacked enough initiative to do it anymore.
So here I am. That's the story. If you want to know more about me, then you're out of luck. All I have to say about myself is that I'm a Canadian male that likes to write. I SERIOUSLY suck at writing about myself.
