To conquer death, you only have to die.
It can be fun sometimes, I’ll admit, but not always.I actually really like the challenges of a-typical personalities. Not every soldier who marches into war WANTS to be there.
Lack of commitment and blatant clichés in plot or character choice! Brooding vampire man, naive damsel, Rambo soldier. Spoiler! They were dead the whole time!
There was one RP I had where my character was famous and looking for an assistant to help them manage their time.
My partner gave me the rudest, most insensitive character ever, who was also underage. (My character was almost 21, theirs was 16.)
They got mad when my character didn’t like theirs. I actually said something along the lines of “Your character is a prick. Make them nicer if you want my character to like them.”
Needless to say, their responses went from two okay-sized paragraphs, to barely a paragraph.
The straw that broke the camels back is when they asked for it to be a romance. I dropped it without telling them and didn’t look back until writing this.
Sorry for the rant, but that’s my example of what has happened when the character’s personality doesn’t match their role.
