4, 7, 8, 43, and 44, if you don't mind?
I don’t mind at all! I’ve already answered 4
7. Are your OCs part of any story or stories?
A few. Taq and Ruby are the only two with a completed story behind them. Most of the others, ehhhhh… I tend to get carried away inventing people and then get totally stuck for a story.
8. Do you RP as any of your OCs? If you do, introduce one of your RP OCs here!
Not really- I tend to puppeteer Sophia sometimes, but only in the informal “we were talking about our OCs and suddenly it’s an RP how did this happen” kind of sense.
43. Do you have any certain type when you create your OCs? Do you tend to favour some certain traits or looks? It’s time to confess
I absolutely do. 99% of my OCs either are or begin life as the embodiment of an abstract concept. The Rubberneckers, for example, are the personification of malicious rumor and misinformation. Anthony is the fear of mortality. Sophia, Bobbin, and Coria started out as Past, Present, and Future, combined with the Maiden, Mother, and Crone, respectively. And to a good extent, they still follow those patterns, though in a slightly less heavy-handed sense. Slightly.
Basically, I love personifying abstract things, and it shows in my characters. Self-hate, and the power of belief in abstracts tends to be a bit of a theme too.
44. Something you like about your OCs in general
I love the opportunities I have to make up ironic or fitting details based on their driving concept. Avery (Averice) doesn’t feel comfortable unless he’s holding a possession of his. Sophia’s favourite flowers are forget-me-nots (she can manipulate memory, and often is asked to induce amnesia). Little things like that.
