OC Contest [AND IT BEGINS]WELCOME TO THE OC CONTEST!OC Contest [AND IT BEGINS]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey there! It’s time for the contest you OC creators have all been waiting for! It’s the OC Contest. In this contest, you have a chance of getting your character a role in ‘Elementary’! So if you want to know what ‘Elementary’ is all about, here is the information:
THE BASE PLOT
Lovino Vargas is a new student that is in his Senior Year at Hetalia High School, having spent previous years at different schools due to his family moving around lots. While other students are looking forward to bright futures and amazing new opportunities, Lovino is rather fed up with the world around him. He feels like he's seen it all and nothing is worth getting excited over anymore. The only person he really knows at this school is his annoying classmate Gilbert Beilschmidt, his annoying little brothers Feliciano and Serafino Vargas, and the rather mysterious Kiku Honda. As he spends more

MEL'S GIANT FACKING SHIP LIST [casual adjust]oh wow remember when i put just about any ship on here because it's easy for me to think anything is cute? oh wow indeedMEL'S GIANT FACKING SHIP LIST [casual adjust]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's the law:
1. I ship what I want, not what you want. AKA don't tell me what I should be shipping, I will probably retaliate by disliking the thing.
2. You respect what I ship, I respect what you ship (even though i judge everyone silently, beware) - respect does not equal agreement, and that's okay.
3. Yes I ship ships featuring OCs hot damn they must all be mary sue then. not.
4. Yes I ship ships that are hetero, yaoi and yuri because love can exist in all forms kthnxbai
5. I prefer to ship accurate ships on the whole, but there are a few exceptions to this rule. HOWEVER - all the OC/Canon and OC/OC ships in the APH section are accurate stuff. I prefer to crackship canons more than OCs.
6. I won't mention preferred OCs because I can't be assed sucking up to specific people (omg u liek mai otp? I LIEK UR OTP 2 THEN EVEN THO I KNO NOTHING ABOUT IT TBPH!!! d'awww)

You know how people like to take screenshots of their RPs in dA chat and Facebook and upload them to post to groups?
I wish people would cut it out u___u
Sure if you wanna upload it for a specific person to see, but to spread your RPing shenanigans to Art Groups?
We join the groups to post our art and see other people's art, RP screenshots are not what most of us are looking for
I don't give a crap about anyone else's RPing unless it's on an RP account type thing and is kept between those involved
with RP stuff, I think it's more of an 'in' thing, where people who aren't involved with the RP itself for the most part will give none of the fucks
Anyway w/e if nobody else agrees
I just prefer to keep my RP things between people I'm RPing with, I don't need unrelated RP stuff clogging up my inbox thank--
btw I mean just the screenshots of RP logs, if you have fanart based off an RP that you wanna show off, then go for it, I just don't need to se
Mel's APH OCs: The Master Post (REVAMP!)Basically because I think this'll be a good way to keep track of my OCs, ahaha. XDDMel's APH OCs: The Master Post (REVAMP!)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And one of the main things I do on this account is Hetalia OCs so... yes. Deal with it. Hah.
RULES ABOUT MY OCS
1. Don't post my art without crediting me!
2. Yes, you may use my OCs for fanworks, as long as you credit me for the character/s!
3. No, you may not take my characters/fanworks and claim them as your own!
4. If you do use my OCs, I would love it if you linked me to the fanwork you used them for!
5. Only I can RP as my OCs. Mine mine mine. 8I
6. Some OCs have a different username next to their name. This person has adopted this OC, but the references for the OC are being kept in the masterpost. When using the OC, credit their username (and mine too if you want, but more the other person!)
And without further ado...

MEL'S GIANT FACKING FAVE CHARACTER LISTIt suddenly occurred to me that as well as doing a favourite ship list, it would make sense to do one for my favourite characters! So let me tell you the gig!MEL'S GIANT FACKING FAVE CHARACTER LIST1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For fandoms with large casts, I will list my top ten characters. And for fandoms with smaller casts, I will list my top five characters. I will do my best to put them in order.
No judging me on which characters are my favourite, or for not putting a certain character on my list. And yeah, that's basically it, ahaha.
Let's do this!

(why do i feel like people are going to be shocked at me for not putting South Korea-- if you must know, he'd be 11th if this were a top 15. ahuehuehuehue - a lot of characters were close to the ten though! )
.::Don't change history just so you can ship.::So I noticed that many people do this, and its' rather sickening. Either they disregard the proper course of historical events, immensely misinterpret it, or 'alter it' to fit their ships. Three main 'ships' that this occurs with are ones I happen to dislike with gusto..::Don't change history just so you can ship2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For me, I majorly dislike JapanxPhilippines, JapanxCambodia, and FrancexCambodia.
Lets' get started on why, shall we?
Japanese Imperialism in the Philippines and Cambodia was nothing short of horrific. The Japanese killed enormous amounts, burned villages, raped women, the whole nine yards. Though this was primarily occuring in the Philippines and they are in reasonable terms current day, it doesn't change the fact that this pairing could be considered remotely offensive. As for French colonization in Cambodia, many Khmer ways were oppressed and almost stamped out.
However, this does not go to say that Imperialism, Colonization, and 'Invasion' are synonymous with rape.
HEY YOU. YOU WITH THE HETALIA OCLately I've noticed another upsurge again in OCs that are whitewashed. They're OCs that are representing nations where the majority ain't white, but for some reason the OC is pale anyway.HEY YOU. YOU WITH THE HETALIA OC2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me just smack all guilty parties with this journal of mine:
And you better read through that journal if you don't understand what I'm talking about, you silly spud.
Now let me just emphasize a thing.
now, my point is: I don't care what form of media you are using. I don't care how talented you are as an artist. That doesn't mean you should deliberately whitewash characters that shouldn't be whitewashed just because you are too lazy to toggle your colour picker on your art program or you are too lazy to adjust the colours of your traditional media. Of course it takes practise with traditional media to get the right colours, but that doesn't mean you should make lazy cop outs like that.
After all, if you're going to make lazy excuses when it comes to your o

A SCHOOL UNIFORM DESIGN FOR A HETALIA DOUJINSHI THING
But I want it to look pretty cool and innovative I guess. Assume it's not too fancy, that the characters wearing it will be moving around a lot and all sorts. I need a boy uniform design and a girl uniform design. These are my more specific requirements for the uniforms:
there is a white shirt included. Short sleeved or long sleeved, I have no particular preference. If there's a blazer/jumper/vest worn over the top in your design, I have no preferences with that either.the pants (for boys)/skirt (for girls) must be predominantly black.Use any other colours as you like, just know that each class will have a different colour scheme. So if you send in a design with black, white and red, assume that there will be versions with black, white and blue/green/purple/etc.the main characters I have in mind are my Philippines OC (refer to :iconlupang-hinirang: for references) and South Italy, so feel free to

ABOUT THE NEW PROJECT (HETADOUJIN) [update!]Hey you! Were you wondering about some of my latest journals? You know, about the Uniform Contest and the Shipping Survey?ABOUT THE NEW PROJECT (HETADOUJIN) [update!]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, they're both in relation to my latest project! You see, I've decided to put my other projects on hiatus and place my focus on this new AU! And this AU is going to be more inclusive than any of my other AUs! How so?
The Uniform Contest: you guys have a chance to influence the style of clothing most seen throughout the doujinshi! This is important to those who want their OC involved with the project, because this'll most likely be the outfit their OC will be wearing and will be drawing their OC in for the October contest! This Uniform Contest ends on September 30th and I urge you to get involved! I really want to get an awesome design to use for both the guys and girls. ;u;You get to have your say! -
CAN I JUST CLEAR A THING UP FOR THOSE WITH PH OCSSpanish surname naming customs go like thisCAN I JUST CLEAR A THING UP FOR THOSE WITH PH OCS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
first name - paternal surname - maternal surname
the paternal surname is the surname that usually gets adopted
so when you guys are doing the whole Maria Clara Carriedo de la Cruz stuff or whatever, you've been taking the wrong surname from Spain's character all along!
His name is Antonio Fernandez Carriedo
Antonio = first name
Fernandez = paternal surname
Carriedo = maternal surname
so the surname that would be more accurate to borrow would be Fernandez, not Carriedo!
BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT
Why borrow Spain's surnames in the first place? You don't see America being called Alfred Kirkland. You don't see Lovino Fernandez. If your character is an independent nation, I don't see any reason for them to keep their coloniser's surname as though they're still their colony.
I get it if you headcanoned the OC as having the surname during colonisation. But once they are independent, it would make sense for them to break away fr

you know whatpeople who can't take constructive criticism over fandom related stuff are not going to have a fun time with constructive criticism in the real world, especially when you get to adulthood.you know what1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So it's better to try and become more open-minded in your youth, because otherwise you risk turning into a stubborn person who refuses other's opinions/perspectives/desire to help with constructive critique/etc.
So instead of bitching out at someone who criticises you, even when they may not have sounded as nice as they could have been, try and think more about their point of view. You don't even have to agree, but don't just run away from it or whatever. With clear bashing comments, just hide them. You have no obligation to answer to them. But when someone is actually trying to give you a thoughtful opinion on something of yours, even when you don't agree, at least try to meet halfway with them. Perhaps you two would both end up elaborating more on your respective points of view and just like t

Just a thing I want to let out of my systemOkay so uh, just a mini-rant. Sometimes I think it's annoying when people go on about 'headcanon' OCs.Just a thing I want to let out of my system1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Don't get me wrong, I'm okay with people headcanoning their own OC as their main OC to use for that country. I mean, we made our OCs the way they are for a reason, because they're made from a whole bunch of headcanons. So that's all good, I can headcanon my Philippines as the Philippines OC to use for works and stuff, cuz it's my works and my OC.
That doesn't mean I'm not okay with other Philippines OCs. There are a few others I like, of course they're not made from my headcanons, but I'm still okay with it all.
Also I am okay with people saying to someone "Your OC is my headcanon OC for that country", because it's a compliment directed at the creator. Their works, their OCs, coolio if you want to use a someone's OC for w/e. But wow you don't need to announce to the whole word, especially in the faces of other people who have OCs for that country as well.
Now here is what I have a pro
just gonna rant a pet peeve of mineWhy is it that there's so many artworks that use '2P' Japan when it comes to fanart regarding World War Two? It really bugs me, because it's like people can't accept that Japan's 1P did those terrible things he did during the war. But in 'Axis Powers Hetalia', the main storyline is based around World War Two and we do see regular Japan and he is a part of the Axis Powers. That is the Japan Himaruya intended for the series, not 2P Japan, the original. 2P isn't even a canon thing, it's an AU and I don't get why people have to use the 2P whenever the country does something they're morally against.just gonna rant a pet peeve of mine8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Or what, whenever a country plans to do something bad, they have to bring in some kind of 'evil twin' to do it? What the actual fuck? Just because you don't agree with what a country has done, that doesn't mean the country has to be a 2P to have done it.
Yes, we all have gotten upset over bad things people in the country have done, but you've got to accept that there's bound to be a reason behin
OC Contest Results [Congratulations!]Welcome, welcome! I'm sure you've all been waiting very patiently, yes? Or impatiently. Gomen if you waited impatiently. I hope none of you went on a murderous rampage to pass the time while I thought these through.OC Contest Results [Congratulations!]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now there are just a few things I want to say before I announce the results.
I was judging characters on many things. Art style has nothing to do with who get chosen over others, so please don't assume that it was the biggest factor. No, what mattered to me the most was the following:
- the character's personality: did they seem interesting to me? Could I see potential on what could be expanded about the character in this doujinshi?
- how the character interacts with others: integration is the most important thing! What can also bring out a character's qualities is the way they interact with those around them. That's why I really wanted to see people talk about relations within their own subject... and I am big on dynamics.
- what is it about them that I'd want

Once upon a time, Juan met Lovino in the meadow.
"I don't know how to tell you this," Juan began nervously, "but I've felt it from the moment I first laid eyes on you…"
"What the fuck?" Lovino asked, confused about the current predicaments of this fanfiction.
"…I heard a lot of good things about you from Antonio, you know? So I had a feeling you were the right guy…" Juan continued, toeing at the grass awkwardly. Oh man, he really had no idea how he was going to ask this. How would Lovino react?
"Wait," Lovino held up a hand to indicate Juan to stop talking. "Antonio's been talking to you about me?"
"Mm," Juan nodded. "He said lots of things… like how you're really adorable, how you have a foul mouth, how your curl sets off some sort of moan reaction, how you turn into a tomato when you're embarrassed…"
Lovino turned tomato red as if on cue. "T
