For those “literates” who come to Chat RP to practice detailed writing, chat rooms continue to offer space and time to bond with their character, to foster the savvy and know-how to respect that character’s actions, to attune themselves to their psychological imprints, and to play them against other settings and peoples.
They can transform well known characters from into queer avatars from which they can enact fantasies, fantasies that have no other platform for articulation.
When others come along to play, new spheres on intimacy open up, where desire is not merely staged, but re-created, and driven beyond what one’s own language can capture.
Yet the most descriptive and talented writers in roleplay are often also the most sexual.
They are able to imagine modern day settings like Japan or New York as playful and erotic stages of powerplay.
Within chat room roleplaying (Chat RP), 1997 was a very crucial year.
