I’ve noticed throughout the time that I’ve been here that new users tend to be intimidated by the Phansite and it’s community. I joined the site during its relative infancy, when seemingly every user was in the same boat of co confusion, and I can see how now it must be difficult to find your footing in this jungle of incels and lesbians. So here I am today to offend Lnari’s official beginner’s guide to the Phansife!
Step 1: Run. Get out while you can. For fucks sake, GET OUT BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
Step 2: If you failed step 1, a good second step would be to distinguish yourself from other users. Let your personality shine! A good way to do this is by making an epic funny meme about Sans that NO ONE has EVER seen before. If that doesn’t seem up your alley, you can always literally just mention Archer’s name, and everyone will love and respect you immediately for engaging with the Phansite’s proudest creation.
Step 3: RP is a wonderful way to express yourself without anyone judging. It’s a fun, easy way to make new friends, and most importantly, it’s a simple and effective way to ease your way into the first ring of hell, preparing you for the torment that you will inevitably encounter as you continue down the rabbit hole.
Step 4: Just be Archer. This one may prove to be difficult if you’re not ACTUALLY Archer, but it never hurts to be an unstoppable force I nature that even the mods themselves have no choice but to bow on their knees for.
Step 5: Be genuine! Here’s the part where you ignore everything I told you beforehand, and just be true to yourself! Trying to fit in with a community your unfamiliar with is really difficult. Thankfully, we’ve all been there at some point, and we understand how awkward it is at first. The best thing you can do is put your real personality out there, and I can promise you that this site and its community will accept you for who you are. At the end of the day, we’re all just a bunch of nerds with a little too much free time, and we’re always happy to meet more people like us. The Phansite’s really been a great place that I can come back to during the best and worst times in my life, and I know it can do the same for anyone else who has the patience to and courage’s to make this site their own!
My advice is to take people's advice. Granted, if you weren't going to take people's advice than you wouldn't read this advice. However, if you to were to read this advice I'd assume you'd already be willing to take advice therefore the advice is redundant.
I advise you to listen to the advisor's advice, but that advice was rather ill-advised.
On a serious note, I agree wholeheartly with Inari. A lot of people, myself included, forget that we're just a community of randos who love Persona and shitposting. It was intimidating at first, especially starting out with RPs and such, but it was because of this site that I met the amazing friends that I have today. And I can't be more grateful than I already am for that!
Also forget Archer, where is the love for Reperzel?
