get to know your oc

Never be scared of sharing information about your OC, even if no one asked for it. 

Write about them, draw their story and tell about them!

It’s the best way for people to get to know your OC. 

It doesn’t matter how many Notes and messages you get. 

Your OC is valid, regardless if people care or not! Because you love them, and that what should really matter. 

People need time to get to know a OC. Time and information. 

Some are too scared to ask you about them or to share information about their own OC, because the opinion of others scare them. 

If you see a OC you like etc, TELL THEIR CREATOR! Because it means so much to them to see that their OC is seen by someone else. 

The Anon feature in the asks are there for those who doesn’t want to reveal themselves. Anons are people too, so it’s valid. 

All in all, popularity, other people’s opinions and age NEVER matters when it comes to your wonderful OCs. 

Don’t wait for a Note to give you permission to share information. 

If you want to give a little sunshine in the fandom, ask someone else about THEIR OC. Tell them how much you like their OCs. 

Spread some joy to others~

Spread the love for OCs. Because what really makes a loyal fandom person is to give, because one or another time you will recieve too. 

Give & Recieve. That’s what I like to quote to myself often. 


Bonus Note: 

Don’t hate on the more popular people out there with OCs who gets showered in notes on a daily basis. They’re people too. 

Some of them may even be tired of the fame. 

In my opinion, and viewpoint, I never look at the amount of artworks, fanfics etc of a OC, I like them for them. And I make sure to tell their Creators that. Even with my awkward words. Because, despite little old me telling them that, it might brighten their day!

Fame and popularity can be tiring. So, don’t hate on them for their popularity just because you’re jealous. 

Popularity takes time and effort, but in the end, it doesn’t really matter.

Issues with stolen gemsonas & artwork

Hi gemsona fandom! Long time no see, hope you enjoyed the “Wanted” special and got some new ideas from seeing Homeworld!

Recently people close to me and I have had a lot of issues with our gemsonas and artwork being stolen, mainly by RP accounts on instagram and tumblr. It seems like a no-brainer but I guess it’s worth repeating:

  • Do NOT use someone’s gemsona/OC on roleplay accounts without express permission from the creator. Make your own character!! Gemsonas are often self-inserts, taking them is very personally intrusive and feels gross, man. Taking the character to roleplay is even worse- you’re misrepresenting them, changing their personality and using them to gain followers and fandom reputation. That’s a whole ‘nother level of theft.
  • Do NOT use someone’s artwork for blog art, icons, or any other personal/aesthetic use without express permission from the creator. Some artists are nice enough to allow this if you ask, but some art is personal and not meant to be used! ASK THEM FIRST.
  • DO NOT REPOST ARTWORK ON INSTAGRAM, TUMBLR, PINTEREST, OR ANY OTHER SITE WITHOUT EXPRESS PERMISSION FROM THE ARTIST!!!!!
  • Reposting or using artwork IS NOT okay just because you actually credited the artist. YOU NEED PERMISSION TO POST FIRST AND FOREMOST.

Just because an artist isn’t active in the gemsona fandom doesn’t mean their OC is up for grabs or any less their creation

Please reblog this (especially rp blogs!) and let younger people in the fandom know that this isn’t okay. Stop reposting art and taking other people’s OCs. Don’t interact with RP accounts with stolen OCs/art. Protect artists in your community!! Report them!!

It’s really unfortunate, situations like this make artists and creators want to take down drawings, stop posting their OCs and leave fandoms after experiences like this..
