How to rp as Meulin Leijon. - Piapa Rusuku - 12-01-2015 03:54 PM

Ok, so I have had much experience with roleplaying as Meulin. She is not an easy character to roleplay as being with her cat puns, her "Fogy" think-pan, and her faces at the beginning of her sentences/ or paragraphs.

The first thing you have to note are her cat puns, they are the most difficult because you can easily miss one. First we will start with "Furr", the reason I'm starting with "Furr" is because of "First". "First" is the best demonstration for her puns, and so is "For". Instead of "First" she will use "Furrst" and instead of "For" she would use "Furr". Second pun is of course, "Purr". "Purr" is a difficult one, you can not only use it in the demonstration that is next but you will need to use "Efurry" and "Furry" instead of "Every" and "Very". She will say thing like "Purrfect" and "Purrefer" instead of the normal, "Perfect" and "Prefer". One more that I will like to note is "Feline" Feline is fairly simple; She will only use it when referring to "Line". The last I will like to say is "Mew" or "Meow". She will call herself "Meowlin" while roleplaying, if you ever run into a Nepeta, call her "Nepawta" even though I'm not demonstrating "Paw" in puns.

The next thing I would like to say are her Typing quirks and what she would call certain people. She types in capital letters much like Karkat, or as her and Nepeta would call him, "Karkitty". The only difference her and Karkat have is that she does not curse as often. She will say the occasional "Fuck" and "Bitch" and in some cases would call someone a "Slut" (Pointed directly at Cronus). She will call her ex-matesprite Kurzorz, and she calls humans "Precious Gay Babys", she learned this from Aranea. She will call Calliope "Calico Cat". Just like Nepeta, Meulin uses 33 instead of EE. Please do not mistake the 33 thing for also using it just E by itself as 3, though this is a simple mistake I see a lot of people use it when roleplaying as Meulin or Nepeta. Instead of OMG, Meulin uses TGM. This stands for The Great Messiah.

Meulin's personality is pretty strait foreword. Make sure you remember to pretend you don't remember some of the stuff you were roleplaying, the reason for this is because she go's through short bursts of forgetful ness. The next thing is that she if forgiving, she forgave Kurloz for making her deaf and for Meenah trying to kill her multiple times. The last thing is her politeness, she is very polite. She asks if someons wants to be in smut fan-fic or "FRIENDFIC" as Meenah called it in there conversation of weather Meenah has flushed feelings for Karkat. She will also squeal once in a while saying things like "F33333333333333333LS!" and/or "I N3333333D IT".


This is all you need to know about Roleplaying as Meulin, thank you for reading these long paragraphs. (God damn there long)

One thing you missed: Meulin has adopted the super-healthy and not at all dysfunctional coping method of repressing her negative feelings, masking them with a cheerful smile. This is prime territory for roleplay: what happens when she can't hide it anymore? Does she cry, yell at people, beat up a pillow, what?

Another thing: At no time in the comic does Nepeta refer to Karkat as Karkitty. She does refer to him as Karcat once or twice though.

Thank you for saying this, I forget a lot of things such as her emoticons, I also say the Karkitty thing because I thought it was a lot cuter then Karcat. (I understand this is inaccurate and I'm sorry) From looking over her conversations I see no sign of her freaking out/ or having a mental break down on something, though I do imagine it will happen in the neat future.

Thanks a lot. I'm getting started on the Leijons and Meulin was my first approach.

Could we have a proof link of her calling Cronus a slut? I haven't found it in Part 2 of Openbound aka the only canon part where she's speaks.

Can we have a prooflink of her mentioning that it was Aranea who told her that about humans?

Can we have a prooflink of her ever mentioning Calliope?

Conversely, nowhere in canon TGM is found used by Meulin. Or by anyone else.

I'm sorry for sounding like an ass but this guide seems to mix canon with fanon or headcanon. While headcanoning is a vital part in roleplaying it is preferrable to state what are canon facts and what are your own suggestions.

*raises finger* Just, one question- why do you assume that Meulin has to be utterly the same every single time? Is she allowed to be different if we're not going 'full canon timeline only', or are you shallow enough to assume she has to be foggy, deaf, and ship happy in every version of reality?


RE: How to rp as Meulin Leijon. - Fubar - 12-22-2018 12:12 AM

Urge to say "why do you assume what i assume": rising.

Ahem. To be serious, I failed to explain what i was trying to say so let me reiterate. Every roleplaying instance if a character will, in fact, differ. It is okay, it is a natural part of a creating process to add your own headcanons to a character. Didn't I say something like that in my post?

Oh, right. I did.

If you wanna make Meulin who is willingly worshipping The Mirthful Messiahs, go for it. If you wanna make Meulin who is aware of Kurloz' religion and is actively hunting him and other followers of LE down, sure thing! Hell, I am guilty of offering my headcanons in my guides but I specifically mark them as headcanons. But that's the point: people come to read a roleplaying guide to learn how to rp this character and make their own interpretation of them, not only guide writer's interpretation.

tl;dr: yes, people are allowed (and will) to make an AU version of a canon character but they need to have a canon personality as a basis for it, not bunch of headcanons presented as the only one true way.
