PSA. child FC trend.
okay so I’m online for a little bit before I’m gunna hop off and finish packing, but basically I just wanted to make a small PSA about this new trend I keep seeing in people’s rules and updates. Lately it seems that a lot of people I follow/read their pages seem to be saying that they refuse to RP with child FC’s. While I personally don’t understand why there is this sudden aversion to the use of child actors (FC’s 18 and under, specifically) I do want to say just two things.
One, I use a child FC in Caspian 2 of Caspian’s verses (Cursed Son –– Kaizer Akhtar && American Noise –– the young Avan Jogia). Honestly, I just wanted to say this because I want people to be aware that I do this, I won’t cease doing this as this trend grows in popularity, and so that if it makes them uncomfortable they can either address it with me or unfollow. I don’t mean to sound harsh, because while I personally don’t understand the reason behind this trend, I’m not going to be mad at anyone for leaving because something I do makes them uncomfortable.
Second, please keep in mind that not all muses are above the age of 18. A perfect example is the character that is Caspian’s Daughter (played by the blog @morningxnoonxnight) is a young child, and thus has a young FC in order to accommodate this. Child muses/OC’s are already isolated in the RP community, and I want those who follow this new trend to realize that you are further isolating these unique and fun characters. Again, I’m not saying this to be rude or to try and change your mind, I just want people to be aware that this new trend has affects on people who have child muses.
Again, this post is not to single anyone out, or to make anyone feel bad about their decision. It’s simply warning you that I do have and use a child FC for Caspian in certain verses, role-play with child FC’s, and also feel like this trend could be harmful to some of those who already feel rejected by the role-play community.
