The word “Overused”
This is my opinion. Don’t get your panties in a bunch if you get offended by what you read. It’s not going to affect the very fabric of your existence. Trust me.
Why the fuck am I not allowed to use Nina Dobrev in my roleplay because everyone has her as an fc? Why? She’s a bad bitch with a lot of gifs for a wide range of emotions. And you can slap a lot of different personalities on that perfect ass face (I love her if you couldn’t tell. Her and Ian are going to bring some really beautiful people into the world). Fuck the word overused. I don’t like it and it pisses me off. I read a review for a review that told a roleplay to change their theme because it was Manatopia’s beautiful header theme and lots of roleplays use it. Why not, its great for organization and if you do it right you can make it unique, it isn’t hard.
Don’t discredit a roleplay for using overused fc’s. This is coming from a person who hates One Direction with a passion that rivals the fires of hell. I’m not going to say the roleplay should change their fc’s or say they suck because they use 1D fc’s. Who gives a fuck, if the fc fits why not?
I don’t think “Overused” is the word we should use anymore. “Misused” yeah, because 1D fc’s get the same personalities as their fc’s so some girls can live out their fantasies. Nina Dobrev always falls for the Ian or Paul fc’s. Fucking Selena always dates Justin. If you’re gonna use a fc that’s used a lot, break the mold. Can Nina fall for Michael Trevino? Can Selena date Chord Overstreet, or you know, not date at all? Can the 1D fc’s not be singers/dancers and be a little fucked up? Put a twist on those bitches and make them shine.
All in all, I don’t like the word overused. It discredits the roleplay, the theme maker and the fc and that’s bullshit. People work too hard to have it all demeaned by slapping it with a word that has negative connotations. Take that into consideration the next time you say “Overused”. Now I’m gonna go back to watching Game of Thrones and wildly ship Khal Drogo and Dany and fawn over Jon Snow while we think about “Overused” and why its bullshit. iRant out.
