    So I'm going to take a break from sulking around the upper floors of the library to give a little prompt. I've been holding on to this one for a while, but what is your favorite pairing of your OCs? If I'm going to extend this a little, what is your favorite OC relationship that has grown over the years? Go into the emotions, make it detailed.

    Relationships are a beautiful thing.

    Currently I'm pretty well swept up in both Catmint (Alondra x Seda) and Forest Fire (Hai x Hickory) right now. I like all of my OC ships, though; wouldn't have them be a thing if I didn't.

    For non-romantic ships, though, Fluorite (Bora Eodum and Llyr Uaine of Team CABL) have such a fun dynamic.

    Well what makes the dynamic fun? Is it something you really enjoy writing?

    Like, just pairing off your own OCs? Or shipping your OCs with other people's OCs? Because I'd definitely get permission for the latter, but the former is just... well writing a pairing.

    How so? If both parties agree there is nothing wrong with it I thought? 

    Jy and I had an OC pairing with Lilie and Argent (tho idk if that is still a thing or not, it's been a while)

    Well, I have a ship named "Victory" that is my OC + another's OC. I'm pretty sure I have permission.

    I do plan on pairing my own OC's, Xanna and Olivia. I have some pretty good ideas.

    I also have kicked around giving Victoria some kind of relationship with someone named Maya. Nothing developed for that one other than the name.

    *cough* Gawain/Rekka *cough*

    But, yeah, I was referring more in the collaborative sense more than anything, thus the emphasis on "permission first yo." If someone decided to just up and pair up their character with, say, Bora, I'd be pretty annoyed at them.

    I feel like I haven't really spent enough time on my OCs' current stories (I tend to focus more on their backstories) to be able to even tell who would be attracted to whom. I'm not sure if I want Chandra to be interested in a romantic relationship or not (though their Semblance would more than likely make them absolutely capable of having romantic feelings for anyone). I kind of like the idea of Chandra and Lucian, but for some reason I see Lucian as being heterosexual so he may not be interested in an agender person, not to mention he still isn't exactly too fond of Humans. 

    Neither Garnet nor Tierra are nearly developed enough to make any decisions like that, either.

    As for MRTL, I bro-ship Myuna and Lyle, and I like the idea of Myuna x Reed, though Reed isn't developed enough outside of my own little unwritten headcanons for him to necessarily be able to have him fully commit to anyone, especially since literally no one knows his true identity, not even his teammates. So yeah. Shipping between my OCs doesn't really seem possible right now.

    Though I wonder if anyone else's OCs would find any of mine interesting? I should probably repost/update them soon.

    Well, none of my OCs are in any romantic relationships, but Azura ships NJ and Aqua together, both of whom deny being involved. The fandom would probably call the pairing "Tudor" after the ruling family of the United Kingdom following the War of the Roses. Kin, meanwhile, may or may not have feelings for Idunn, the middle child of the Ren's Nest. That pairing would either be called "Fuji" or "Golden Delicious" after two types of apples.

    Which reminds me. I should get working on the Ren siblings...

    Team Summary!

    (Probably should have posted this before Nilla but whatever) (Also Hanlon means light/warrior according to this :3


    REFERENCE: Colour of the metal nickel

    Leader: Nilla Hanlon - Tactician

    Members: Ciane Troi - Berserker, Kuchi Iro Neko - Mop-up crew, Freya Lapys - Dust fanatic/ranger

    Type: Team of Faunus from Beacon

    Strategies and Fighting Style: Nilla usually assesses the situation and makes the best plan that she can think of. Usually this means assassination (killing it before it notices you), much to the disappointment of Ciane.

    Ciane is the tank berserker. He chose the role himself, and is surprisingly good at it. He mostly uses the railgun mode of his weapon. He's a little trigger happy in combat.

    Kuchi is the mop-up. She comes in after the big fight to pick off the last few that the team missed. Usually this means chasing them away, as Kuchi never likes dealing the final blow.

    Freya is the ranger. She also supplies dust to her teammates. She usually snipes from a high tree using her semblance as a scope.

    Nilla and Freya work the best together, taking out the enemy fast and without fear. Ciane usually just does his own thing. Kuchi also works well with Freya, but not as well as Nilla. Nilla taunts the enemy to lead them into traps where Ciane should be waiting. A lot of the time this doesn't work and Freya has to shoot ice dust to stop the opponent moving.

    Associates: NCKL are students at Beacon, but (spoilers) they get moved to Haven when the academy falls.

    History: Freya and Kuchi were partners in the Emerald forest and Nilla and Ciane were as well. They chose the black knight at initiation and Ciane was not impressed to be prancing around the forest with Nilla.

    I can't get the associates section to go un-bold

    I feel like Tykva probably has a crush on Amber. And I also see Bibi and Liam get something. But I'm not sure about any of that yet.

    Calida has a pretty big Crush on Ashlyn (The tall, mysterious type really gets her going, and the shyness is a big plus on the cute factor) and their closeness as friend/partners has only grown more intense since team CHAR came to be.  Though Ashlyn isn't aware of such, but considers the team leader her closest friend.   Though the relationship dynamic changes somewhat just before / during the Battle of Beacon, but I've not mapped out the small details just yet.

    She actually had something of a 'Crush at first sight' with Nieth too, but found herself sobering up when she realized that spider-girl was a bit too 'intense' for her.

    Nilla May is a flirty girl who loves nothing more than making slightly inappropriate jokes that nobody else understands. She tries to make everything as neat as possible, but sometimes goes a little overboard. When the dorms were given, she made sure that the beds became bunk beds, but did so with the help of Kuchi’s bo staff in its “soldering” mode. She applied to Haven because she wanted adventure and some new people to hang out with. She says things so quickly that sometimes you can’t understand her, but when on the battlefield she is very calm, analysing the situation then leading the enemy into a trap. She is Team Leader because she is confident and can figure her way around things, even under pressure. Also the other members just aren’t cut out for it. Ciane: jerkface who thinks he’s funny and is never serious; Kuchi: naïve child who hates killing, only hurting, never dealing the final blow; Lapis: terrible communicator who stays on the sidelines, shooting from her bow.

    Fear(s): Spiders, the colour red, the basement of her dad’s house

    Likes: Music, Pizza, pancake eating wars with Ciane (Nilla always wins), green jellybeans

    Dislikes: Grimm, the bottom bunk, curtains, pink jellybeans

    Habit(s): Biting the inside of her mouth

    Fatal Flaw(s): Her incessant “need” for pizza, her lack of any stealth whatsoever, EGO

    Strengths: Metalworking, pole-vaulting, stabbing

    Weaknesses: slashing, climbing, running (heels!)




    Weapon Name:


    Weapon Description: Trident/pole-vault/triple-barrelled gun


    Relationship with Others

    Brief History: 

     Nilla was born, raised and taught in Mistral, and has been living there since. Her mother and father are still alive, but Nilla hasn’t seen her mother in 14 years. Her father helped design her weapon but challenged Nilla to forge it herself. She was able to create the “shell” (the main body of the weapon), but her father created the technology and mechanics. Her father noticed her skill in metalworking and honed it, but still refused to let there be a soldering iron on the end of her weapon.

    When Nilla was 3, her mother left after giving birth to her baby brother Ross. Nilla, being a young, naïve child believed that her mother would come back, but she never did. Her older sister, Crème, told her not to fret, but Nilla waited by the door every day until her 10###sup/sup### birthday. Now, she only says things quickly in fear that the people she interacts with will leave too.

    She used to attend Beacon, but when the school fell, she was moved to Haven, where she continues her studies.

    After many people gave me flack on Vulcan,I decided to create a new character.

    Here is my new character! 

    Brock Brookvale (Late Australian motorsport legend Peter Brock,Brookvale NSW)

    Nickname: Brocky

    Age: In his 20's

    Alumni of Beacon Academy

    Relationship with Winter Schnee

    Faunus: Kangaroo

    Clothes: Vary from Atlaian uniform,business suit,shirt,jeans,sneakers and mech suit similar to our world's Iron Man.

    Robotic and weapons expert who worked with Ironwood in the build of Yang's prosthetic arm in Atlas and Project PENNY.

    Semblance: Ability to release his aura to increase his strength similar to the Yang releases hers.

    Aura: Gold

    Weapons: Prosthetic arms with weapon capabilities which can turn from gun to sword with external side arms.

    Personality: Quiet yet can get excited but will stand his ground against the Grimm and can beat you down in a fight by resting on his tail for a good double footed kick to his opponent whilst using his weaponry.

    Trained at Beacon,Leader of Team BLAZE and trained with guidance of General Ironwood where he met Winter Schnee in Atlas studying warfare,weaponry and robotics few months after graduating from Beacon.

    I'm still working on it but it sounds good so far plus he rides a prototype hovercycle

    Sounds good so far, just as a general rule, don't make to many relations with canon characters, as you may be shut down if something ends up clashing. Other than that, sounds pretty good.

    Just a side note: I'm absolutely awful at this, so don't get sad if something I say is good ends up actually being the least relatable character ever.

    I'd say don't use a numerical stat system for your character's abilities.Nobody understands what those numbers mean, for all we know, an 8/10 in spearmanship could be nearing Hunter levels of skill. It's much more helpful to just describe your character's capabilities.

  • LukePrather


    #33574821 - 3 months ago

    In reply to GriselllJumpTJD Ok first question why did you pick the name, what inspiration or reason did you have for it? Was it cause it has the work Rock in it which would fit the color rule or something else? Second question is related to Brock and Winter, I may dislike the relationship idea but if your going to stick with it at least add a background to how they met, why their a good pairing, and why Winter Schnee chose to date a Faunus when her family is known for having a slightly biased outlook on faunus. Third question why would someone who hails from beacon wear Atlas based clothes, why he has a mech suit when he already has prosthetic limbs, and when the only mech suits currently in Canon are the size of tanks. Fourth question how is his semblance any different from Yangs, you never stated how it's different and that makes me think you just wanted to say that your character is like yang but not really cause their so totally different and stuff. Fifth question how did he loose his arms, you never specified why he needs prosthetics, cause that can add to character development and personality. Sixth question why isn't his personality more fleshed out, you only have us one real character trait and that's it, give him some depth, flesh him out, make him feel like a real person. Seventh question and my final question....why would Ironwood the general of the Atlesian military train and become close enough with a former student of beacon to not only let him work on a top secret project that not even ozpin know about, allow him to use some prototype hover cycle, and use a suit of mech armor? Like seriously give us some background please, it makes it hard for me and probably others to understand how in the Two Brothers names he accomplished all this. I suggest asking for the unofficial template and use that to help revise, edit, and add to your character.
