OC x Canon Stamp by Konata101 OC x Canon Stamp by Konata101
Just for your understanding, I AM NOT ANTI-OCxCANON CHARACTER!

But if you want to write/draw about your original character falling in love with a canon character, then that OC should be a good and well-developed character on their own.
(As in, not a flat mary-sue twu luv for your favorite bishie.)

Seriously. We don't need another 'My Inner Life'-esque fic, amrite?

Feel free to voice your opinions on OCxCanon Character fanfics/fanart in the comments.

My characters always start out that way. For my main characters I decide who they will like/love/want to be with first along with their name (if they like anybody at all). I am a major dramatic tragedy writer so they will either not get that love or struggle and fight for it until they win it, of course there are exceptions to make it not always the same, but then I study them intensely, build their character, and make them as un-Mary-Sue as possible.

I make it my duty to have flaws in every character, whether it be paranoia, like my favorite character I have made (a male I made for a friend), or the inability to see the bad in anybody close to them, leaving them weak and vulnerable to their "friends", who have malicious intentions, which is my main character's flaw for my own Hetalia spin-off I'm making about the US States. While that last example of a flaw may sound like a Mary-Sue, she has several others like excessive clingyness and wanting a family, that she never had, so badly that she views all her close friends as her family, "playing house" with them against their will, being extremely protective over them to the point of trying to control them. I make sure they have things they can and can't do and make sure that they make plenty of mistakes along the way.

I usually even change who they like later on, and so it will not seem like I threw two people together on purpose, not because they are meant to be together, because I never do that. Sometimes I end up making them like characters that I dislike, usually this is because of historical reasoning behind it, because this is Hetalia, or even just because the original person would never even look their way based on their personality.

I have been studying the history and culture of my characters for three years now off-and-on so I can get their characters realistic and not even in the slightest a Mary-Sue.
