The Ultimate Sonic Fan Character Creation GuideDISCLAIMER TYPE THINGY: This is a guide of tips for making the most unique and awesome Sonic fan character possible. Everything in here is what I believe makes a truly awesome and not "Mary Sue-infested" Sonic fan character, and is strictly MY OPINION. You, as the reader, do not have to follow these guidelines exactly. I am not, in any way, personally attacking and/or defending any fan characters out there and/or any fan characters mentioned here. I also do not claim any of them as my own. There are many Sonic fan characters out there who break these guidelines and are still unique, awesome, and greatly received by the public. I even broke some of these rules. Heck, SEGA themselves even went past these limits. But like I said, no one is being forced to follow these guidelines (even if I capitalize "DO NOT DO THIS"), so continue reading to find out how to make your character super special awesome! And if you have any questi

Mary Sues And How To Avoid Making ThemMary Sues annoy me to no end. Seriously. As a writer and an aspiring game developer, I took my time to read over stuff on how to create characters and how to make them GOOD. Now I've read through tons of sites where the whole thing on Mary Sues was at least seven paragraphs long and its chock full of complicated language and stuff, so as this is a guide for yonger people who want to create good fan characters, I narrowed down some of the basics. Any questions afterwards will be answered, and if you have a fan character and are not sure as to whether or not they're a Mary Sue, just ask me and I'll look it over for you ^ ^ I'm trying to be as nice as I can about this so I'd appreciate it if you, the reader, did the same.Mary Sues And How To Avoid Making Them3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Creating a Well-Developed Original CharacterCreating a Well-developed OCCreating a Well-Developed Original Character4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Hello! Welcome to my guide on the creation of a balanced, believable original character! Whether this is your first time creating a character and you want some advice on where to start, or you need to tweak your character, because you're unsatisfied with it, then you've come to the right place. In this guide you'll find details on the importance of every aspect of an OC, from something seemingly insignificant as the name to the powers of a character.
This guide can be applied to original characters of any fandom or purely of your creation for your own story! If your setting doesn't include some parts, like having abilities, you can simply skip over that section. Likewise, if I'm going into details on some specifics that don't apply to your character, feel free to skip over that as well.
Before I get into breaking down a character, let me first start off by asking you to do one thing. Get the term "Mary Sue" out of your head right now bef
Notes: Create With Cake Eps 1 1) What themes do you want to work with?Notes: Create With Cake Eps 13 months ago in Plot Outlines & Synopses More Like This
Selecting your theme is important, because it helps keep the plot, characters, events, and designs focused. For example: you don’t want a holographic phone in an 18th century-themed horror story unless you’re throwing in time-travel and science-fiction into the mix.
Some of you may think that this limits what you can do in your story—and that’s true. That’s one of the reasons it’s done actually. Working around limitations or within boundaries forces you to be more creative as to how your characters grow and accomplish difficult tasks in the plot. This makes the story more dynamic and interesting to follow.
Remember that it doesn’t just limit the story, it also opens it up—it all depends on you as the creator to exploit what you can do and how far you can go in the story while still remaining in theme. Take the movie Inception for example: it was still within the boundaries of dreams, but i

How to create an interesting CharacterOC (Original Character) is something that sadly has a rare to no appearance in TF2 Fandom. People started to step out of the idea to create something truly original, once SFM gained on its popularity. These days most of the OCs (Which have a more accurate naming: FC – Fanmade Character) are described by a different set of cosmetic items slapped on a canon model. I’m one of the people who do that.How to create an interesting Character1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But that doesn’t mean your Character can’t be interesting.
PERSONALITY is what makes your characters interesting, but way too many people either limit themselves to one insignificant aspect, or they’re making a way too big variety of different behaviors.
So Happy, Sad, Serious, Shy, Friendly, Mean etc. are NOT a base for a character’s behavior. They’re merely one of many attributes.

Whether the obstacle that stands in the way of your protagonist is an evil person, a person of just another philosophical belief, a person with a contradicting goal, a force of nature, a force of the supernatural, a monster, an emotion, an experience, or just a challenge in and of itself, it has to make sense, stand up to reason, and be every bit the deep and complex an entity as your protagonist if you want to create a balanced story.

When a reader first picks up a book, they create an instant connection with the author of the story—formed through a required level of trust just so that the two of you can immerse yourselves in the world you have created. The writer and the reader are, at that point, friends or pleasant acquaintances; and at that moment of relationship and immersion into the realm of story, the characters become just as real as the reader/writer relationship. The writer, in this situation, has the benefit of already knowing all the characters, and it is up to him/her to create an introduction for the reader to meet the characters.
