Can I just say before I get started that the site is freaking GORGEOUS? :D
Hello everyone! I'm VexatiousVerse, but feel free to call me Vex, or V, or whatever the heck you might like. I stumbled across Arkadia on TopRPSites, and I gotta say you guys are the first I've come across that seem to actually care about the site looking good - even if I had to hunt for the registration button! ;P
I used to do play-by-post way back in the day when I was in high school, got out of it thanks to college just sapping every ounce of my will to write for fun. But, with all this time left on my hands since everything's gotten shut down, I figured that I might as well make the most of it and give things a go again. I used to dabble in fantasy, though as I got older I began to really give science fiction a try - I can't get away from it now, but I'm not complaining! I'm willing to try about anything aside from fandom stuff, as I'd rather write with characters and worlds of my own.
I can't wait to get to know all of you! This place looks like it will be an absolute blast. :D
Welcome to the site V! Our talented site designer really worked hard to have us looking bad and bougie, so thanks for noticing (even if you had to hunt down that registration button). Let me or any other member of staff know if you need any help! Hope to catch you around the forums soon!
Yes, we are incredibly vain (and it paid off) we love our site aesthetics
I too, was hit by the College suck monster for 8 years and finally coming round to being able to write for fun again is both delightful and the scariest thing haha.
Looking forward to seeing your stuff! Im a fan of science fiction though I've never really written it I keep trying tho! One of these days I will do a Star Trek universe RP with original characters, one day u_u
Annnnyyywho, welcome welcome! Please enjoy your stay, and join discord if you haven't already!
Thank you both for the kind welcome! I'll be sure to let you guys know if I have any questions, or if I need to hunt down any stray buttons again. XD But yeah, whoever the site designer is (I hope I can meet them!) they certainly deserve kudos, this place looks stunning!
And oh no, I'm sorry it got to you too Orca. But I'm delighted that you're back, and in fine form, I'm certain! I just hope I can step up to the plate and deliver like everyone else is, I know I'm pretty rusty haha
You'll have to let me know if you ever put that Trek RP together - I was practically raised on TNG! And, as always, keep trying sci-fi out! I've found it just gets better with practice. It doesn't help my case that I devour about any sci-fi novel I can get my hands on, good or bad. Even bad books have good ideas!
And I'll have to pop in! I didn't know you guys had a discord!
I have a couple of TNG novels that my dad collected and I've tried to read them and while, yes, the ideas are great, I can never get past the very Fanfiction-esque writing haha. and I used to write fan fiction! I just...coupldn't with these books haha. I have a few books either hard copy or on kindle that are sci fi themed so I keep trying. It's either Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica (the reimagined series), the 100 or 3% for me currently.
Suki is our Site designer. While she's got her own sites to run (we're affiliated! Take a look down at the bottom of our home page!) so she isn't around a lot on this forum but I'm sure you can still meet her eventually~
but, now that I know that so many are on the same page with me and TNG I miiiiighhhht work on that thread a little sooner rather than later.....
