Okay, so that one ask about a face reveal and me digging through ancient art folders made me want to do a self-instert OC for PJatO.
So. This is me. Like. Really very close to reality, as close as me and my art-style can get I guess.
I mean, do you remember that time when you made up suuuper obvious self-insert OCs for all the things? I loved doing that, way back before I knew what fanfiction was. And I realized that I haven’t done that in fifteen years.
So I figured, it’d be fun. Let’s imagine me in the Percy Jackson world.
After much consulting, I came to the conclusion that I must be a daughter of Hades. I mean. I can hold a grudge for… literally a decade, over the dumbest things. I never forget anything if it agitates me. Also, people - looking at you, @elements1999 and quite some others - keep dying in my comment section. Yet they always come back to life. Which means I must have magic powers over death, obviously.
Also, let’s be real, self-insert OCs are always funnily overpowered, so I’ma child of one of the Big Three now.
Now, a good OC needs a name. I played around a little with my username and since I always refer to myself as Phoe, then Phoenix should be the firstname. But Takara is a bit of a weird last name, so I figured - hey, that means treasure and in German the words for treasure and darling are the same, so maybe Phoenix Darling then? (And that’s how my brain works :D)
So, meet my demigod self who I will never use in a fic but who was fun to draw and create anyway - Phoenix Darling, daughter of Hades.
Drawing myself is… weird. Like, really weird.
Oh and I added a short semi-comic. Because I was bored.
Firstly, me arriving at Hades Cabin because “Yeah. That makes sense. Kinda.”.
Then, upon entering the all-black cabin going “Time to redecorate”, because black is kind of not my color.
Next up, Nico coming home to find his cabin in all purple and with fangirl stuff thrown around, being all “What’s going on here?”.
And lastly, me confronting my new brother a la “Liste up. I’m your big sister now. Let’s make Percy Jackson your boyfriend.” and Nico going “…Whut?”.
Also, the seven beads on my camp necklace represent the seven years I’ve been part of this fandom now. Meeeta :D
Aaanyway. I had fun with this and even though I’m not gonna post a photo of myself on the internet, take this as referrence on how to imagine me, if you want, I guess? xD
