I may revise the categories rule at some point, but at this time and place, the rules stand. If you need help with an RP at any time, you're welcome to PM me rather than just complaining about the rules here. They may come off as strict, but a lot of forums that are solely dedicated to RPing have far stricter rules.
RPs don't have to rigidly fit one category. In my experience, RPs can fit a multitude of categories at once, and it makes them more interesting and appealing to more people. For example, a sci-fi RP might have elements of romance, or perhaps even a theme or plot idea taken from a book or a film. A fantasy RP could be set in a high school and be based around anime characters. I love to write, too, and I can work an RP around several categories if need be. ^^
