How to Make a decent homestuck troll OC.THE DO'S AND DO NOT'S OF MAKING A HOMESTUCK TROLL OC.How to Make a decent homestuck troll OC.3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
1) THE NAME.
- Make it something we can pronounce. Not some stupid shit like Jukgth Ghtyfk.
- The first name HAS TO BE 6 LETTERS long.
- The last name HAS TO BE 6 LETTERS long as well.
- Your troll CANNOT have the last name of an actual canon troll.
- Nor can they be related at all.
2) TYPING QUIRKS.
- Make it something readable at least. Keep it simple.
- Don't use the ones that are over used. Like replacing S with $.
- Be creative.
3) BLOOD COLORS.
- Be realistic guys and stay with the program. Don't make them have some stupid rainbow blood or something. That screams Mary-sue.
- Your troll may be a mutant blood. It is rare but it happens. So it's okay, just don't make them flaunt it. They will be culled.
- Black and White are not colors, they are shades and tints. So therefor they cannot be blood COLORS. (This includes grey/gray)
- Lime is a canon color, but lime bloods have gone extinct.
- Your trolls blood cannot change colors.

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
Creating Original SpeciesSo, hello and welcome, once again, to one of my long-as-longcat text tutorials. This one here is going to be on the creation of original species. Unlike my other tutorials, this one is going to be better organized and hopefully make more sense, although, like all my other tutorials, it's going to be more a guide, than anything else. After all, you might not like, or even have to follow, everything I do, though I hope I can at least lay down a good path for you to follow, least you decide you want to follow it at all.Creating Original Species3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
For this tutorial here, I will be using one of my own, nearly-original species, my biological vampires. These are simple characters, more humanoid than anything, and a very good springboard for showing one what developing an original species can do for you, your story, or anything else you plan on using these species on. Along the way, though, I will also be stating things that might apply outside my vampire species, and might apply to your species. Whether you use them or

Explosive surprise move to catch opponent from behind. Judge opponent's distance from you carefully; then lash out with your back legs, taking your weight on your front paws.
A fight-stopper. Slive with unsheathed claws across soft flesh of opponent's belly. If you're pinned down, the belly rake quickly puts you back in control.
Front paw blow
Frontal attack. Bring your front paw down hard on your opponent's head. Claws sheathed.
Front paw strike
Frontal attack. Slice downward with your front paw at the body or face of your opponent. Claws unsheathed.
Ideal for a small cat facing a large opponent. Spring onto opponent's back and grip with unsheathed claws. Now you are beyong the range of your opponent's paws and in position to inflict severe body wounds. A group of apprentices can defeat a large and dangerous warrior in this way. It was deployed to great effect against BloodClan's deputy, Bone. Watch for the drop-and-roll counter move, and try to jump
[Alpha] Sculpting Ponies FAQOver the years, I've been asked many questions on how I make my ponies through many different outlets (notes, comments, in person, etc). And through that time, I've been collating those questions in hopes of one day making an FAQ/tutorial with pictures and demos for anyone interested in sculpting. However since then, I haven't gotten around to finishing all the questions nor editing them nor polishing them. Frankly, I don't think I ever will. So instead, I'm opting to publish them somewhat raw. Most of them are copypasta's of questions I've answered in some form, others I've gone back and actually polished them to be more coherent. You'll notice some duplicates with slightly different information, the context may be missing, or that some of the questions are left unanswered or half answered but that is how it appears in the document. Also, the names of the questioners have been removed. Either way, this is only a fraction of the questions I've collated so far, and depending on how this[Alpha] Sculpting Ponies FAQ2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

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 Character5 months 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.
Also known as the very core of every personality. People change over time d

1. Sane Wolf Fans: While technically not wolfaboos they deserve to be mentioned. They like wolves but don't take their interest in wolves to the extreme like wolfaboos. They may or may not support regulated wolf hunting. They are actually pretty cool people. It's kinda hard to find them on DA.
1.5 Wolf Artists: They draw really good wolf art. The anatomy is good and they aren't sparklewolves. They deserve to be praised.
2. The Underage Wolfaboos: They are a bunch of kids who made their way to DA. Most of the time they don't post any artwork. If they ever see someone posting a different viewpoint from them they use CAPS RAEG on them. They try to insult you, but instead of offending you they end up making you laugh.

A story is only as good as its villain. And while the antagonist of your story does not have to be a “villain,” they do have to live up to certain reader expectations if you want your story to be of any merit. So here are the top 5 qualities that readers want and need to see in your story's villain.
Quality 1: Your villain should be a dynamic, true-to-life character.
Remember, we are talking villains here, not monsters. And unlike a monster, a villain should be a person. This means that no matter what race, gender, or even species, your audience should be able to empathize on a certain level with them. Doing so makes the story feel real, and creates complex emotions for the audience as well as the hero.
Quality 2: Your villain should be more powerful than the hero.
This does not mean that you villain has to be stronger in every way. I means that the villain should have something that gives them a distinct edge over the

-Whitecough and greencough are the most common chest infections known to the Clan cats. Whitecough is the milder form, but if untreated, it can develop in the much more severe greencough.Cats usually catch it during leaf-fall and leaf-bare, and sometimes it develops into large-scale epidemics. It can be fatal for elders and kits,and it has claimed the lives of several cats.
Medicine cats treat it using catmint.If fevers accompany the cough, tansy or borage is used as well.
Poisoning is the ingestion of a substance that causes harm to the body, such as:
Eating or drinking poisonous substances or plants such as deathberries. Usually kits do this, being curious and unaware of the danger
Eating poisoned or rotten prey or drinking tainted water
Inhaling too much smoke from a fire
Being bitten by a venomous animal
If only a small quantity of poison is ingested, the cat mostly receives a bellyache, but larger amounts can
