Yes, @Rune, it's the writer. And it annoys me too.

I... What? 

 

Okay... 

 

Apparently it's from "Mundane." People missed an opportunity for a Fables reference and call themselves Mundies.

Which fables? La Fontaine's? or Esop's?

 

Usually the term mun for writer is paired with pup/ puppet for character... and no character is a puppet. A figment of your imagination can be a real rounded character, not a puppet. Therefore I don't like these.

Fables the comic series.

@Rune a mun is short for a mundane or a normal person. Sort of like a muggle for the Harry Potter Genre.

I find myself cringing a lot when people use ‘orbs’ for eyes ( in all fairness I’ve come across this on human RP sites as well ), and there’s one for lips I saw recently that internally wigged me out — ‘brims’.

 

I’m not sure if they’re trying their hand at purple prose but I just want to be like: “It is perfectly ok to use ‘lips’, ‘eyes’ and / or ‘gaze’.”
