What is this sort of RP called?

I've been doing this sort of RP for a long time, before I joined here especially. And I'd definitely say that this is my favourite and best type of RP. But what is it called? I've always used the term "Reactionary RP" as it mainly consists of people reacting to what happens in the previous post(s), but there's a better term right?

I've only ever heard it called RPing. Never a more in depth name. I'm not sure what else to call it.

Play-by-post is the most widely used term.

Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end
