To add to that advice, there will ALWAYS be someone who will look for something to be offended by. They will find one little detail to shame the mun over. DO NOT let those people have power over you. Be proud of yourself, and if someone doesn't like it, tell them the unfollow button is a click away. (or block the loser)

if you could give your fellow rpers one piece of advice, what would it be?

No matter what you do, you will never be able to please everyone. People are always going to be dissatisfied with something. Don’t stress yourself out trying to make everyone else happy.

I'm a newer rper and my original character isn't the friendliest. I've had this fear that other muns won't want to rp with me because of that, and the other oc's that I've seen are pretty good natured so that makes me feel even more scared to try rping. Am I overthinking things?

Perhaps, but having anxiety as a newcomer isn’t uncommon. Not all characters can be sunshine and rainbows. Having an unfriendly character doesn’t mean that interaction is impossible or even less favorable. 

In my fandom the most popular characters are the assholes.

But if I were to write up an OC and then I become some famous writer and I have a show and I bring that character to my show is it cannon or an OC? Like, obviously that's not going to happen, but I've seriously never even thought of a character being a writers OC before and when I saw your ask I became super curious, so I'm sorry if I'm bothering you?

You would be the original creator of your character(s) and their universe. They would be canon to whichever television show that they were a part of. They would be your creation,  but to the viewers of the show, they would be canon characters.

Just curious about your last ask, if Tony Stark isn't an OC because of being written and rewritten and what not, then what about characters that haven't? Like, characters from TV shows that are completely original to that show, or books or movies. Things that didn't derive from something else and was remade and remade and remade. Does that count as an OC to that writer? Or is that still cannon and if not how many times does a character need to be rewritten to not be an OC?

I do not consider canon characters to be OCs, period. 

A lot of people don't *seem to* realize that "canon" characters are technically the OC of the creator of the novel/show/movie/comic. Just throwing in my two cents. (No, this isn't a confession, just kinda stating a fact o u o)

I actually don’t agree with the whole “canon characters are OCs” deal. 

There are two different types of OCs— fandom characters and original characters.  Fandom characters are characters designed to be integrated into a  pre-existing work of fiction. Original characters are independent of pre-existing works. They are completely original, with no ties to any other creative works.

Canon characters are native to existing fiction. They are pre-made, already existing characters. They have established settings, relationships, backgrounds, etc. Though they do belong to the person/company/etc that created them, I would not consider them OCs. They have been, in most cases, licensed and published for commercial use. They aren’t… “original.”

(For example, Tony Stark is a Marvel character and was originally created by Stan Lee. He has been written and re-written by different writers many times over. I would not consider him an OC of Stan Lee, though he is Stark’s original creator.)

While I understand all the time and effort roleplayers usually put into creating original characters, I just personally don’t like roleplaying with OCs.

It didn't really elaborate on your rules page (or else I couldn't find it), so do you message in the confessions or make a picture and put it in the submit box?
