Fuck Yeah, Bad RPer Polar Bear!
We've all been there � cringing over fellow roleplayers' terrible grammar and language use, and the general failtasticness of their behavio r and characters. This is why we decided to create Bad RPer Polar Bear, to act as sort of a support group for all of our ranting needs.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m generally pretty cool with whatever somebody wants to play because as long as you do it skillfully it an be totally cool. I can safely say that violet eyes and naturally blue hair have never been a thing that’s made me roll my eyes because it does next to nothing to effect the character you’re playing. Nothing at all to effect their personality.

But royalty is quickly becoming a pet peeve. We are at a high school. It is an althistory high school, we have werewolves and magical girls and everybody fights and I get that some of the people that have graduated from it have gone on to do some pretty intense things (fulfilling prophecies, captaining pirate ships) but it feels pretty uncool to just come in and be like “I’m special because my daddy is the king, I don’t have to earn my reputation”.

It’s getting a little bit outlandish how many princesses we have. I mean…there can’t be too many more fictional countries for people to be like “I’m the heir to this throne” for, right?

Because apparently on this website it’s considered more prestigious to play canon characters for some reason? I don’t get it. I mean, not to knock people who do, because it does take work and if you’re having fun it’s totally legit, but why would you put someone on a pedestal when they didn’t make their own character then knock the people who /do/?

My partner and I shipped our characters together for about three years, talking somewhat frequently OOC, even after I got really busy with school for a few months and couldn’t roleplay at all. When I got back into roleplaying after school was over, I saw his character on my dash talking to another troll about my character dying in his character’s arms. He didn’t even ask me first, just assumed I wasn’t coming back to roleplaying.

Because that muse hurts my muse’s feelings! So I will keep badmouthing them to my RP partners so they will hurt that muse!

While doing it all in public!

Pure. Genius.

More of a general thing than a specific rp but god. DAMN. IT.

People don’t always marry who’s best for them, a kid is a lot of responsibility, not everyone is ready for either– but of course, the instant two people/robots/aliens/furries/etc hook up, they GOTTA GET HITCHE D and it is going to be FUCKING PERFECT and they are going to be so loving and adorable forever the end. No conflict, only babies.

Roleplay is often built on conflict. You switch it out for domestic fluff exactly all of the time, then what? It’s often called “endgame”, but it doesn’t have to be.

There is more to life than “settling down” and having 3 million kids.

(And don’t force my character who is the exact opposite of ready for kids to look after your child OC. Just don’t.)

So one day, this guy I met on a forum approached me and asked to RP.

One of the first things he asked me was whether I’m okay with smut RPs - I totally am, and I’m willing to play pairings of any sexuality and as either gender, so I relayed as such. He suddenly got really excited and asked me to do one such RP with him. Uh, okay. I was hesitant, but I agreed - what was the worst that could happen, right?

We tried twice, with a different scenario for each. The worst that happened? He showed me that he’s really freaking terrible at RP in general, especially ones of a sexual nat ure. He made it pretty obvious that he’s done no research whatsoever, and moreover none of his characters are played in such a way that they’d appeal t o any of my characters.

When I asked him why he was pushing so hard for a sexual RP, he told me that he has a filthy mind and needs sex RPs to keep his fantasies in check. I… was confused, at the very least. You’d think someone who had an addiction to this sort of thing would do some research on the subject.
