Just wanna say I'm so happy about someone supporting OCs. There are so many fandoms I've been in that act like OCs are nothing but cringe (which really bothers me because I hate the word cringe in general). How do you feel about OCs paired with Canon characters, though? I feel like those OCs get treated the worst.
Honestly, I think everyone has a right to self-indulge and let their creativity run free! There’s just such a stigma in some fandoms that I know a lot of people feel like they need to hide or outright stop creating OCs/shipping them with canon characters/etc, which I think is quite sad. ;; If anything, I think it’s wonderful to see the different minds that lurk within a fandom and all the incredible ideas that come out of everyone! And if it prompts someone to write more, draw more, or express themselves in different ways, all the better!
So yes! So long as everyone is having fun and no one is being hurt (i.e. bashing other OCs/pairs aaaaa) then I’m in support of it! c: <33
