Soooo...it's high time for a new journal. This has been going around FA lately, and it's a clever idea, so I decided to do it. Only...I have so many main characters, it's hard to do this for all of them at once. So...I'll do it for one at a time. First up: My first ever fancharacter (MLP), Amethyst.What made you choose the species of your main Character?
I have always identified with winged unicorns. Amethyst, Defender of Dreams (I know, silly title is silly
But there's a reason for that, but to find out, you'll have to read my fanfic. It is here for anyone who's interested: www.fanfiction.net/s/2432518/1…
*shameless plug* ) was the first ever character I made. Though initially not a MLP fancharacter, when I discovered fanart/fanfic and that I could make up my own stories in conjunction with franchises I loved, it just seemed to click.
For the record, Am was a purple winged unicorn LONG before MLP even HAD winged unicorns (First ever pic of her (note the date on the pic: 2001) : violetwhirlwind.deviantart.com…
), so no accusing her of being a rip-off of Twilight Sparkle will be tolerated. If anything, it's the other way around, but I can't accuse them of that because...well...it IS their franchise, and Am is still just a fancharacter. I just had to get that disclaimer out of the way.Is your character just like you, or how you want to be?
As in a self-insert into the fandom? Maaaybe, but she has her flaws as well. (I'm not sure how else to answer this question.)Does your character have the same personality you have?
Kinda. She has similar self-conscious tendancies, but she's far more confidant/brave than I am.Does your character have the same dislikes and likes as you do?
I guess so, at least partly. She doesn't like injustice, oppression and bullying. Conversely, she likes adventure, whereas I am rather sedentary. But she lives in a drastically different world than I do, so anything else doesn't really apply.Does your character look like you at all?
I'm not REAAALLY a quadrupedal purple winged-unicorn, so, no. XPIs your character the same gender as you, if not why?
Yes. But then most (G1) MLP characters are female anyway. XP Considering the intended demographic.Do you have more then one main character?
Yes. I have more characters than I can handle. XD; I will get to the other main ones at a later time. (maybe)Do you have a back story for your character, if so does it have anything to do with your own history?
Yes (but you'll have to read the fanfic to find out. XP *plug* ), and not really...unless you look at it more deeply as symbolism for overcoming bullies or something, but it wasn't meant to be that deep, really.Is your character mated, if so is it to your real life significant other?
Yes? (though that part is not yet written, and I feel kinda silly about it now, as it's with a canon character (Nightshade). But these stories were first made up years ago, when I was still a massive fangirl (although I still am, kinda XP) and I don't know how to or if I could bring myself to change them), and N/A. I do not have a significant other, IRL. (and that's how I like it)If not are they looking for a mate, or are they a swinger so to speak?
N/A (see above)Is there something special about your character that you think sets them apart from others?
In her world, as a hybrid, she is the only one of her kind to have ever survived longer than a few days.Do you have much art of your main character?
I have some. Not enough, but she's kinda been back-burner'd. XPWould you ever consider parting with your main character, if so why?
Nope. Change, maybe, delete, never! (I could never do that to any of my characters...my characters are like my children. Brain-babies if you will.)If you suit, do you have a suit of your main character?
N/A I have no suits, least of all quad-suits. XP I know quad-suits are possible, but I don't know how they manage it. It would kill my back. XD;Have you ever roleplayed with your main character, or do you prefer not to?
Some. Not enough. XP But it seems the only pony RPs around nowadays are G4, and she is NOT G4. I also have a fanfic of her (see Question #1 *plug* XP )Do you consider your main character to be a part of you in any way?
All my characters are a part of me, and share some things in common with me, though most are FAR braver than I could ever be... *sigh*
Also, I came up with a tentative commission price list...but I kind of feel it is inadequate for my skills/amount of time I spend on my art. But if I price too high, nobody will buy from me. So I'm still not ready to take them yet. But I will have to start doing something soon, as I am running out of money. So, if anybody has any advice as to setting up commisions, it would be appreciated.
