Your Persona!Your character that represents you!
I've never had a "persona" or anything, but if I were to choose someone to represent me, that would one of my Naruto OCs, Hikawa Shinkirou. I've had him since 2010 and he's very near and dear to me due to the hardwork and intricacies that I put into his story, but it wasn't until a few years ago that I realized that I really related to Shin. Being cut off from emotion, at risk of being destructive, affecting those around and keeping them away due to it. It just really hit close to home when I was struggling with my own expression of emotions back then, and I grew closer to him after that.
And then came the healing.
When I started to heal, coincidentally that was when we were talking more and more about their Part II, when he finally receives his own healing. Expressing his emotions, accepting them, not fearing them or himself. He obtains all of these things, and with them he finds the determination and passion to be able to go after what, and who, he has wanted all along. That's very symbolic to me, and I'm proud of us both.
Your 'Guardian Angel'!
You protect yourself through them, vent through them etc, they keep you strong.
You probably have a deep emotional connection with this character.
Okay, he would literally be the shittiest Guardian Angel, but this position undoubtedly goes to the main character to one of my stories, Zenchi Tanren
. At the time I never
thought I'd really ever have a "vent" character due to wanting to make my characters separate from myself, but that all changed after made this kid, especially
his development from then on. I've gone through a lot with this peanutbutter child, from using his story to express the personal pain of crushing guilt and self-hatred to establishing a happy ending for him that is filled with forgiveness, acceptance, and the chance to start over.
Like my girlfriend twoclover
and his counterpart
, Tan was a go-to character of mine for roleplay and art, and I put my absolute all into him. He, too, was the first that I really worked my hardest on compared to the mains of my other stories, and he was the first ever that I allowed myself to actually live through in order to, well, keep myself happy and safe in my darkest moments. It's been a few years since I've given him proper attention due to switching the focus over to my girlfriend's lovely stories, but he will forever remain significant to me.
A character that never fails to make you smile. Maybe they have bright colors.or maybe they are very cute. A character who's your own personal sun.
That, my friends, would be Matsunaga Rihto
, the World's Biggest Texas Cinnamonroll.™ He's my main character from one of twoclover
's stories, which is a lovely slice of life that centers around her protagonist and the academy that they attend—
where introversion and extroversion are interestingly a prime theme and divides the students into their needed faction. Although he is one of the most popular attendees there, he is incredibly pure-hearted despite the internal struggles that he faces. Also, since I don't have major anxiety nor have ever really experienced it, I had never given that to any of my characters until I created Rihto, and man, do I secondhandedly feel it whenever I'm doing anything with him. I really relate to his overthinking, but in spite of what his thoughts are constantly telling him he's always trying his best and it just makes me really happy every time I think about him!
The Odd One!
The oddball character you're not sure why you have, but you treasure them deeply. Perhaps because they're just so weird?
It took me ages to figure out who to put here, but after a little help from the gf I decided to go with a character from one of my stories, Eguchi Funato. At the beginning he was never apart of the original plan for the story, I created him—while the girlfriend created his best friend/love interest, Hayase—on the fly due to some inspiration from a UK show called Skins, but now, I absolutely adore him. He's so devoted and self-sacrificial despite some of his own shit that he has to deal with, and honestly, him and Hayase's story together is so beautifully tragic I love it so much. I never thought I'd get so attached to him, but Fufu is definitely one of my top favorites from that story.
The One of Sentimental Value!
That would be Toshimitsu Miriamu
, my main Naruto OC. I made her when I was about 13-14, and boy, has she gone through a lot. From originally being a self-insert Final Fantasy character, to more of a separate universal character when I was introduced to anime, to being an official Naruto original character. She's undergone a lot of changes throughout the years and although my attachment has wavered during certain hard points in my life, Miri has become a very precious part of my creative world.
Those edits (yes, kids, back in the day screenshot edits were a huge
thing in the OC/FCverse, and that was my prime medium at the time) at the top probably took me a whole day or two with my old program when I was younger, whereas the bottom piece took me only a few hours. I'm so proud to see how far she has grown and developed, and proud of myself for sticking with her, I'm excited to find out what the future holds for her!
The Fancy One!
Your flashiest character! Probably the prettiest one or the one with the fanciest design.
This also took me a while to decide since I typically go with more casual/simple designs for my characters, but after a certain Smoll
of mine puffed up and let her wrath rain down, I hurriedly went with one of my RWBY OCs, Eris Spindel
I know the whole "gothic-lolita" thing isn't anything new, but it's new to me and from her style down to her physical condition she is probably one of the greatest detailed characters that I have—
if not the most. Her design came out exactly
how I pictured it and I'm just really super proud of her! I love my fancy, badass daughter!
The Rare One!
'The rarity' How about a character you're so surprised you actually managed to get. You probably won't be letting go of them anytime soon!
Another one that took forever to decide fghjkl since any character that I create usually has purpose! But, after Deary
elaborated the various ways that this rarity could mean, I settled on a character from one of her stories, Matsunaga Ryoto
, who also happens to be Rihto's older brother! I didn't think I'd get that invested in him since he was simply intended as an antagonist at the beginning—and still is mostly, but then y'know, even more development happened—but now I really enjoy him.
I chose Ryoto because he was the first psychologically driven/complex character that I had made in a few years since my own stories before switching over to focus on the gf's. I just find him really interesting, and I love his growth as a character. Also, I'm kinda proud of his design and his stupid hair that I somehow managed to achieve!! So yeah, I think that makes him a rarity!
He'd think so too, that narcissistic prick asfgjkl</strike
The Fandom Character!
You heard me! Everyone's got one, fork them over!
Well I mean...you've already seen a few, but I'll give you another! I typically focus on my own original story characters, but from the very limited fandoms that I treasure I have a ton of characters in them! Sooo, I had a lot to choose from, but in the end I decided to go with one of my fairly recent Naruto OCs, Mizuno Tsutsuji!
I...made her half on sheer impulse and half with purpose but I really, really like her! I'm really proud of Tsuji's design and creating her has helped me revamp and solidify one of my oldest clans—
which includes the other older characters connected to it as well. She started a chain reaction! So, yeah, I'm excited for her, and her love interest's, development!
Okay who just joined your family of characters? Let's see them!
Like my girlfriend, I have a handful of characters of this year that are in early stages of development, but Zarah
is probably the most established out of all of them! She's a part of a side story that she's working on, and a member of the main group
even if she's only mainly concerned about her counterpart fghjkl
! The amount of characters that I have with pink hair are close to none so it was interesting having that color as a requirement to her concept, and, it looks really good with her other colors! I'm just really happy with her design and excited for her development when that comes around!
Tagging (if you want to~) :
I have no one to tag sooo :T Whoever wants to do it!
This was so fun to do! I'm really glad that it's done though, I worked really hard and I'm ready to rest
