PSA to OCs

FIRST OF ALL Y’ALL ARE AMAZING. I love your ocs and even though I’ve not been here for more than 10 days, I can say that this community is pretty damn good. But you guys NEED TO GROW SOME THICKER SKIN JFC xD

What I mean by that is that you need to be more confident in your OCs and thir relations to canon characters. I LITERALLY SEE TWO EXTREMES HERE.

On one side, you have all these shank’s daughters and whitebeards descendants and Ace’s son and you know what I mean

and on the other side you have ocs that knows nothing about well known canon characters.

CANON COMMON KNOWLEGE =/= ASSUMING RELATIONSHIPS

You all need need to chill like a whole damn lot????? I speak for myself when I say that but I’m sure I could do it on behalf of all YONKOS, MARINE ADMIRALS AND WARLORDS  when I say that THESE THREE CATEGORIES OF CHARACTERS ARE COMMON KNOWLEDGE/CELEBRITIES IN THE ONE PIECE WORLD.

I can understand if your muse grew up on the Island Usopp trained on during the timeskip or another retired part of the grandline, where even the news coos don’t go. I can understand if your muse don’t know how to read, is blind, is deaf, is just an average civilian. But when you create an OC in one piece, I think it’s more than safe enough to assume that they at least heard the names of these characters.

I’m making this PSA because Tumblr is literally the only place I saw that? I heard stuff about calling out people and wow holy shit are you for real? People are calling each other out for roleplay stuff??? That’s… pretty insane. 

CHILL.

BE CONFIDENT.

REMEMBER THAT COMMON KNOWLEDGE IS NOT AN ASSUMPTION.

That was my two cents.
