FullMetal Alchemist OC GuideFirst off, you need a name. I'd pick something that does NOT sound Japanese, because most of the characters in FMA do not have Japanese names. Anything European-sounding is fine. Unless you want the character to be from Xing, in which case you'd use a Chinese-sounding name. If your character is someone who was from Xerxes, their name can be a little more creative, but I'd avoid using normal names spelled strangely. Ex: Stefany instead of Stephanie, Kristal instead of Crystal, etc. I'd also avoid using a name another character in the series already has. If you're having difficulty thinking of a name, look at some baby-naming websites.FullMetal Alchemist OC Guide6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Then you pick their age. Most people make their characters 15-16 so they're close in age to Ed and Al. Unless you want to pair the character up with someone like Roy or Scar or Kimbley... in which case you'd pick an age close to theirs. Roy is 28, Scar is likely older. (I'm not sure of his actual age.) So be sure

She’s still a woman though sometimes she forgets that. She’s forgotten other things as well. And sometimes, she needs to be reminded too. Short vignette about Yui Goido plus omake. Mentions of KeimaxYui Slight spoiler to manga chapter 216.
Yui Goido wasn’t just any reformed girl. Even back then she wasn’t just a girl, she was a lady. A very feminine lady. It’s hard to imagine when you see her now in her handsome glory that she used to be womanly. She forgets that too.
She barged in the classroom with the audacity of a delinquent. But she wasn’t a delinquent, maybe eccentric at most but never the misbehaving type. In fact, she was adored, idolized even. Well, she was no idol like Kanon that’s for sure but she had her share of fans. Unfortunately.

The delicious aroma of a pot of fresh soup floated through the quaint Ponyville home, a grey pegasus stirring it as it sat upon the stove. Her wings occasionally flapped, sending the warmth and smell through the area to the point where she was positive that her neighbors were going to beg for some at any moment.
A smile spread across her face as she heard the click of her front door and the sigh of her young filly.
"Hello, muffin," she happily chirped, hearing Dinky's saddlebags hit the floor. "How was your day at school?"
Waiting for her response, Derpy listened as her daughter's hooves clinked across the kitchen floor, making their way to the living room, which was soon followed by the sound of the young pony plopping herself down on the couch.
Sensing the distress in her daughter's actions, she abandoned her stirring and trotted into the living room, looking at her grey filly with concern. She watched as the pony intentionally avoided her gaze.

He heard her scream.
Not just any scream.
The scream of Fionna.
At that very moment he realized that he had never heard her scream before. She yelled at him, called to him, talked with him in long conversations. She shouted in victory after taking out an enemy. She argued with Cake over meaningless topics. But she had never screamed. Not like this.
This scream cut through the air like razor blades, straight into his ears. It tore at his heart and made his blood boil. It was a scream of despair. Never in their long friendship had Flame Prince heard Fionna scream in despair. But somehow, someway, he knew it was her.
It could only be her.
When he woke up this morning thinking it was going to be a normal day. Fionna had been adventuring with Cake, so she had been gone for a few days. The Prince simply HAD to see her, he’d thought. It had been far too long since they spent some quality time together.

#101) Why do so many bronies lie about their gender? So many (guys) pretend to be girls and it's weird. This one guy pretended he was a slutty girl pony so guys would sex roleplay with him and treat him nicer and flirt with him. Am I the only person who thinks this is creepy? You shouldn't lie about who you are, should you?
Answer: Of course you shouldn't lie about who you are. You should know everything about everyone. I don't befriend someone unless I know at least the following details: what their blood type is; where they grew up; if they have a history of heart failure in the family; when they started to walk; what their first word was; how many kids they plan on having (if any); and so on. The list is endless, and even then you can't trust people.
Concealing information is fair enough, but lying about information is a bit of an odd one. On the one hand you have the power to be whoever you want to be online – if you're a weedy, anxious individual who can't co

"Just a second." Cake had even made me wear a dress. I took one last look in the mirror and my black dress. It was just above the knee. I clipped in my braces which attached at my waist. Three buttons came down over the lace which hung like a necklace. A small pocket was stitched over my left breast which held my phone. The poofy short sleeves were tied with ribbons to match the skirt. Fishnet tights clung to my legs and black heels were strapped to my feet. My blonde hair was in a ponytail. Seeing as I wasn't allowed my white bunny ears, I settled for black ones instead. I checked my eyeliner, which coated the corners of my eyes, and my red lipstick before walking out the room to meet Cake. I felt like a right slut.
"Ready?" She gave me a curious look.
"Ready." I replied. I took in a deep breath as I closed my eyes. I was only going because I was trying to get Gumball to like me.

#91) Me and my boyfriend have been bronies from the beginning and we've been thinking about having a kid. We heard somewhere that they can inject animal DNA into the womb in the first few weeks to give the child animal-like features. We think this would be the coolest thing ever but we fear others will frown on it and our beautiful pony child will be looked down upon. What advice do you have for me?
Answer: I think your sources are quite credible. You can, indeed, inject animal DNA into the womb to create animal-human hybrids. That's why you quite often see dog-boys, cat-girls and giraffe-children walking around town centres. It's becoming more acceptable nowadays, but you might want to give it a few more years before you try it out, just to avoid the beast-baby facing ridicule at school. They may have an elephant-teacher, which would help the child feel more 'normal', but if all the class-mates are human, or another form of animal hybrid, it could be difficult for them

Spike was lying on his bed, thinking about all that had happened that day. He wasn't sure if he should write about it, due to the risk of Twilight accidentally, or purposely, finding it in his journal. 'Maybe I do like her' he thought, 'No! I can't like her. She's my best friend and that's it.'

Somewhere not far away an evil presence hangs in sheltered darkness. It wasn't a being as much as an existence in a large room almost completely devoid of light. In the center of the cavernous void weak light was thrown pitifully into the endless black by a single ball. The flickering light peeled the darkness from the front of a single woman. She wore black cloths from head to foot which made her body seem to melt into and merge with the inky black.
Her arms were outstretched towards the ball throwing light over a snake tattoo on each arm. She could feel the presence all around her in the dark. It was still most of the time but very recently it had begun to grow restless. It would shift occasionally like a caged animal sending shivers down her spine. It was terrifying but it had power; power she needed. Others might be afraid of the presence but she wasn't. In fact she had sought it out.

Finn didn't really have a lot of friends. He was somewhat shy when he was among others. His only friend was Jake, his pet pug. Jake was a very smart dog. He respected Finn as his owner and friend. When Finn wasn't at school, he and Jake were always seen together.
Then one day, something happened to Finn that changed his life forever...

#79) As a woman should I be worried that the people that run our fandom are guys primarily (example: Equestria Daily)? I must say I was a bit offended when I saw sexualized ponies getting featured.
Answer: This is a fantastic question, because it's so multi-faceted and it raises genuine points about larger issues that exist in society. Despite feminism and suffrage, and policies that increasingly purport to grant women greater levels of equality, women are still marginalized in a lot of circumstances.
It's fair to say that Equestria Daily is a male-run website. You have the occasional female admin (Phoe springs to mind) but naturally, Sethisto is the dominating force of the website, and, I imagine, the one with the power to accept and veto the overall decisions that Equestria Daily makes. A simple glance over the site suggests that it's run by men, for men: you can quite frequently see images of ponies in 'sexualised' poses, and on more than one occasion they've linked t
