What are stereotypes. Stereotypes in my opinion are things that are constantly done in more the one occasion either because A) the user enjoys playing that type of character. B) they don't know how to play another type of character or C) because they are too lazy and don't want to change what types of characters they play and want everyone to welll...DEAL WITH IT!. I've dealt with these types of partners in the past and it can be difficult to push through it and figure out a common connection between the two characters. It also happens in plots involving a uke and a seke character. Types of stereotypes mary sue or gary sue A Mary Sue is an idealized and seemingly perfect fictional character, a young or low-rank person who saves the day through unrealistic abilities. Often this character is recognized as an author insert or wish-fulfillment. So the character is a perfectionist, has no weakness and can basically do anything they want. people have talked about them before but there are some ways to get through them let people know in your search that you will not deal with Mary Sues or Gary Sue if the partner brings them up during the roleplay calmly talk to them about it, say if they don't like it then it won't match Overly dominant or overly submissive characters this is overly common in the libertine genre in my opnion, it can either be a shy abnormal girl falls in love with an attractive overly dominant male who takes advantage of her. The most common pairings that use this trope are master x slave and the more common kidnapped x kidnapper type of roleplays, I am not saying that these roleplays are a bad thing its just in my opnion that they are overdone and the character seem to be in the same balance Gender Stereotypes EXAMPLES princess who needs to be rescued all the time (damsel or dame in distress) shy girl who wants the bad boy Do you have any stereotypes in plots that you can't stand, how do you deal with them?
