Tips for writing OC X Canon
There is nothing wrong with canon X OC as long as it’s well written. Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s wrong to ship canon with anyone besides the original cast, as that’s saying that shipping in any remakes of shows/games (such as Sonic X) is wrong.
You don’t have to care what others think. If you don’t mind destroying canon, and possibly getting flamed, than ignore this guide, and do it (just please don’t make me read it). Ship your Mary-Sue with every guy in the fandom for all I care. If you don’t want people pointing you out on this, say that you know about all the errors and that criticism is not wanted.
If you wouldn’t read something similar, don’t write it. This is always good to use, especially for OC X canon. If you wouldn’t read the story if it was writer by a stranger, then you may not wanna write it. If you think that your plot would be boring to read, then what makes you think others would wa

How to create a good OC
Okay, so I’ve been reading a lot of fanfiction and now I know that a lot of you need a lesson in the art of creating OC’s. I’ll admit I’ve created some crappy OC’s in the past, but I was like ten and they got a decent number of followers, so I something right.
I’m guessing all of you have read at least one fanfiction where an OC ends up with the main character and trumps an important romance between him/her and another character. We’ll that OC may me a candidate for a Mary sue/Gary stu label.
What are Mary sue’s and Gary stu’s you may ask, we’ll I’m here to educate you in these two GIANT crimes against decent fanfiction. Trust me, an OC can make or break a fanfiction.
Here are the traits of a Mary sue.
-Everything in the story goes perfect for her. (This includes romance, school, Pokemon battling, duel monsters, fights, ect.)
-She has absolutely NO personality flaws what so ever. (She is nice no everyone, even people who

Before Rev became the speed demon that he's famous for, he was actually very slow and talked at a normal speed like his brother, Rip.
Rev maybe one of the nicest anthro birds anyone will ever met, but that doesn't mean that he makes friends where ever he goes.
Because a lot of people picked on Rev for many reasons and taking his kindness for granted. From his skinny stature, to his geeky behavior, to his height (he was short for his age unt

A variety of faves, for a deviant of many tastes


I love how this came out! This scene stands out so vividly from the movie, and I think you captured it so well, here. The technique is ...

This is very well done! I don't know the first thing about Skyrim, but the first thing to pop into my head was the Grimm Little Red Rid...

Oh wow, I really appreciate the level of detail in this! The colors are bright and eyecatching, yet confusing and dissonant! I like how...

Without dissolving into a pile of fan-squeals, I shall attempt as sober a critique as I am able to :) I find it quite charming and witty...

What do you use for your arts? Anything and everything around; I'm pretty flexible...

How long does your art usu. take you? Really depends on several factors: weather, mood, life, lawlz. But if I'm in a really good place and in a creative mind, ehh, anywhere from 10 minutes to 3 hours

How bad of a fan are you? Ohh, I'm pretty bad, but I deceive by acting like a closet case, bwahaha...

Now then...
Greetings my fellow deviants! Here is a wee bit about meself~

I am firsthand a daydreamer, secondly a writer and artist, thirdly a nerd, and fourthly a hopeless fangirl

I am a big fan of fantasy and sci-fi, so there will most likely be a flood of random stuff in my gally under those genres

I am an animation junkie and I like almost any movie that contains such. I am not a video gamer, but I like video games. I am also an amateur Whovian, as well as a padawan anime/manga nut; but only a padawan

I am creative, (brutally) honest, smiley, talkative and optimistic

My buckaroo in crime is UnbridledWild

My favorite characters are: Batty Koda, Jeremy Crow, Lampy, Gir, Pterano, Strut, Zippo, Rattlesnake Jake, Wheatley, Stefano, Edward, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rev Runner, Bugs Bunny, Starscream, Ratchet

Personal Quote: I tend to underexaggerate, but only a little :D
  • Listening to: The Lumineers: Ophelia
  • Reading: Screen
  • Watching: Casa de Mi Padre
  • Playing: With bwainz
  • Eating: Pitha
  • Drinking: Dr. Peppah
With the Morning Report....
No. No. Just no. Stop that right there XD

So big news :)
I illustrated a book back in December, and it's available on Amazon, for those of you interested.
Click Me!

This was a great and often nervewracking experience as an artist, but 10/10 I would do it again. This helped so much with the development of my style, and hopefully you guys will like it, too :)

In other news, I am busy adulting (:fear:) but my art is what is keeping me sane nowadays, so expect more in the near future from yours, truly :)

Over and Out

TheBattyCrow Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
No, not really. I check things here and there, but I'm sporadic.
BoltGreywing Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2017
I know that you still have your old Fanfiction account still around, I am trying to create a new rp for the site but at the time I don't have the time I used to.

However in its place I have created

A virtual pet site where users can create their very own pets, plus the forum is setup for maximum flexibility.

Just out of curiousity do you take requests, trades or collaborations?
TheBattyCrow Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't anymore. I'm on dA too infrequently to keep up with it. Maybe sometime in the future, but as for now, I'm afraid not :/
