Hello! Welcome to our little corner of tumblrland 🙂
So, my Lestat can’t do full RP, there just isn’t the time for it, but he does answer Asks here.
The best way to break into RP is to send Asks to RP characters who CAN do threads, and start a conversation! Some of them prefer to RP with people who have a blog set up for just RP but some of them will have a conversation with anyone 😉
Check out my tags below, you might find some active RPers that way. Go shopping, find one you like, peruse their archive, see who they interact with, and if you want to engage them, send them a private message and try to start a thread.
Y’know, I only recently learned about LJ/DW RP groups for other fandoms, but not ours. It’s not like that here in Tumblrland. Not as organized, which is both good and bad. Good because anyone can try, but bad because no one is obligated to RP with a new person.
I’ve been here in Tumblrland for a few years now, I’ve seen RPers come and go, I’ve seen VC RP directories born and abandoned, the RPers that are active at any given time tend to find each other and RP loosely. A thread here or there. Casual banter. That kind of thing. Because we all have Real Life, and that often interrupts more reliable/frequent (or longer) RP threads.
However, I would suggest you check out my tags below, you might find some active RPers that way. What you need to do is find an active RPer or two and peruse their archive, see who they interact with, and if you want to engage them, send them a private message and try to start a thread. You can also post RP memes, which you’ll find on other RPer’s archives. I think there are also tumblr blogs just for RP memes (starters and such for threads).
Fanfic?? there’s no such thing as VC fanfic… pfffft. What are you crazy honestly??!
^Lestat is laughing bc he knows I is sarcastic.
In short, Anne Rice had waged war on VC fanfic in the mid-90s, sic’ing her lawyers on many fanfic writers, eventually breaking apart fanfic sites (“speculative fiction” or “spec” archives/communities) and driving many of these writers to stop writing altogether or do so in a more underground way.
Currently, she’s had conflicting stances on fanfic, but hasn’t made outright war at nearly that level. We try not to tag her in discussions of it, basically, we don’t try to provoke her by making our caches of VC fanfic known. Especially on Facebook, where she’s very active and might see it. She posted this on her FB in 2014 (I think):
Archive of Our Own (aka AO3) should satisfy you. Lots of good things about that site, one of which is the ability to bookmark/download/comment/kudos fics. They also have a mission statement about protecting these fanworks from copyright infringement arguments.
There’s also fanfiction.net, which I haven’t really tried, ppl say it’s good.
You can try my #fanfic tag here, in which I’ve collected some that have made their way to tumblrland.
Also, explore the VC RP community here on tumblr, their threads are a form of fanfic. We don’t really have a wide-spread active VC RP directory but you can start with the vcdirectory (not updated currently, but there may still be some blogs on there to peruse), vcpositivity, and withinthesavagegarden.
I created this account back in the spring of 2012 and never could have predicted that this roleplay blog would become my baby, to be honest. I was such a n00b to Vampire Chronicles (I admittedly only read Interview with the Vampire in March of 2012 by the suggestion of a good friend, hannibella) and was so intimidated omg. ;; BUT ALAS, two years later I’ve finally hit my favorite goofy milestone. It’s been very fun and I truly think this roleplay community (and fandom in general) is absolutely wonderful.

Folks that I roleplay with regularly, speak to often, or have in general been super cool to me throughout my time roleplaying Louis.
So, I’ve been drawing this a while ago but I didn’t know how to finish It ( background or not, paper texture or not, colors or not…you got it) and then I just drop it.
But thanks to my best friend Camillou who kiked my ass and told me that I should post it and stop being so captious, I finally did…
Its the scene in “the vampire Lestat” when Lestat got turned by this old (and crazy) vampire Magnus
So the characters belong to Anne Rice in his vampire chronicles.
So I don’t even care whether you like it or not, but it’s very rare to see Magnus fanart. Yes he was a monster. Yes he did a horrible thing (well, more than one, for sure). But without Magnus, we would have no Vampire Lestat. I guess the Children of Darkness might have picked him. What a different story that would have been…
Bonjour~ Oh wow, a vintage RPer, how intriguing… I had no idea MySpace was used for that! I don’t know about other sites, either, but there is VC RPing here on tumblr.
It’s called the VC Directory. There are some very talented writers on there. Just create a tumblr RP account, and as long as you follow its rules, you can be part of the fun! You can shop for other VC RPers there, listed under VCdirectory.tumblr.com/rps.
Hope that helps :] The RPers on there might also know if there are other VC RP websites outside of tumblr. Some of them take RPing out to skype and/or simply texting.
