I was wondering, how does time fly in this RP.

I was kinda wondering when because... well... if one character has a birthday, another character would logically have theirs soon.

HOWEVER

In one person's RP series, a period of two years could potentially pass.
In anothers, it's been maybe a day. If these two have met before when they were both 16, split up, and reunite when one was 16 still and the other was 18, wouldn't everything be screwed up?

I was kind of thinking that and thanks in advanced for whoever takes the time to answer my dumb Question. xP

All I can say on this is RP time is not real time. It might take two years to complete an RP, but the story itself won't be a two year quest.

Example: In my RP, the adventure is still on the same summer day, even though it's taken months to complete it.

Time passes pretty much the same for some, RPwise. I've read a few, and there isn't an RP out there that hasn't taken more than a few days (Furoh time, not real time), even over the course of months.

However, I'm going to need to refer you to other popular media, specifically comic books and television. Even though time passes differently for those media, they still seem to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving (in the US) and Christmas on time. This is a phenomenon known as Suspended Time (and more prevalent in comics than in TV anymore).

For the most part, however, everyone is staying at the same pace, give or take about a week. If an RP is taking the course of two years, we're probably going to get some clarifications (especially if said RP mentions news items from other RPs) and make sure it doesn't disrupt anyone elses RP. We definitely don't want quantum aging in PANE!

So does that mean I can make my character older when I want to?

I'm wondering this because... well, I've said that Alex is maturing, and I think it's time for him to have his birthday. I also want him to have a summer birthday, for random reasons.

If I agree with my fellow RPers, could I get away with doing that?

Someone's already had a birthday, so I'll allow one. As for subsequent birthdays...we'll cross that bridge when we get there wink.gif.
