On behalf of The Mark of Oxin, I think Alex and Jake deserve a ship name since Phil did suggest that they could be in a ship together. I’m not sure what to call it, but maybe it could be Jex?
As a content creator I love it when people redesign my ocs. It's nice and fun seeing how other people interpret your characters! It's never offensive unless theyre trying to be offensive. Plus if alot of people are mad at the design, it's up to the content creator to at least take that into account and ponder on the criticism.
