OC appreciation stamp by LordPendragonOfCaria OC appreciation stamp by LordPendragonOfCaria
A simple stamp, with a pretty straightforward message. I mostly just made it because I feel that some people put way too much thought into what makes a "good" OC and are too quick to point out "flaws" in them or traits that, supposidly, make them "Mary-Sues".

And yet, despite what some people might say, I think the most important thing is if the creator enjoys their characters. Afterall, if someone doesn't like your characters, they can always just ignore them :/

Finally, I just want to let you guys know I didn't make this stamp out of spite or a grudge for anyone in particular. Just wanted to make it for a general purpose.

Hope you guys like it. Opposing views are perfectly acceptable, so long as they're polite :)

90% of my OCs are Lugia recolors. People can say what they want about them, but I hope they are polite.

This stamp FTW for me. I have at least two OCs that could TECHNICALLY be "Mary-Sues" but they were never consciously meant to be ones, yet I worry that readers will automatically hate them because of this.

Pretty much. I think the only OC of mine that I hate is a antagonist that was heavily inspired by a real life person.....and that's because I hate that bully.

I love ALL my OCs,no matter what kind of flaws they do have :la: Some of them may not have a perfect design...But other people may like it anyway,let them be like that x3 Some of them might be TOO flawless,and I'm actually working on it =w=
And finally - some of them are rude,selfish and generally have bad traits...But I fully accept it,because nobody's perfect!These kind of flaws only make them more original <3
Like Felicia,Elli's mother - she's a perfect example for me...She thinks only about herself and her pain,never notices other's feelings,keeps on being depressed and does nothing to help her,but lives with that despair :-< Moreover,she blamed her own daughter for killing her father (which makes no sense,since she was with her when he died and she saw with her own eyes that it was a black wolf who murdered him) and started hating her so much she threw her out of the home!Ellie was eight at the time,and she just left her alone in the forest for no reason!How would anyone love such a character?!But somehow,I still do love her,cuz she just had to do that so Elli can now be who she is...Sometimes I get a thought that I should even help her leave her past behind,I wish she could just forget about it and start being happy again...But I'm fighting with myself,because I wanted her to be like that from the start :-P It's a really strong urge,though xD

All the people here say that this stamp means "My Oc isn't a Mary-sue, but I love them", but when I hear "My OCs may not be perfect" I always understand it in a away that they're still too Mary-sue-ish/Gary-stu-ish.... And I still have some of that type but I love them anyways and I'm still working on them to make them "perfect"

I agree <3 NOBODY's perfect,so having only Mary-Sue OCs makes no sense at all,I wish everyone understood it that way...

This stamp is great. I love the message :3 I have so many OC's, and I realize none of them are perfect, but I am always improving, and they improve with me.

Now if only I, the great glorious noob, can figure out how to get it on my profile... Still favoriting tho :D

If you look to the right, you'll see where it says "thumb". Copy the url that's in that box, and then past it where you want it to be. That's how you can display it :)

Of course I still love my OC with their qualities and defects! :heart:
Who need a Mary Sue OC? Mary Sue characters are boring in my opinion! :XD:
I love non-perfect characters and OC's, because don't have defects don't exists, don't exists the perfect person, is more natural a creation with her defects apart of qualities! :D
