OC Contest [AND IT BEGINS]WELCOME TO THE OC CONTEST!OC Contest [AND IT BEGINS] 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
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!] 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
OC Contest is closed! [TOTALLY CLOSED]THE CONTEST IS OVER - The extension deadline is done and no more extensions have been granted. So forgive me, but I'll be clearing the folder of the WIP entries, because I cannot judge those.OC Contest is closed! [TOTALLY CLOSED] in Personal More Like This
Now, thank you so much for everyone who did enter! I must say I was really impressed with a lot of the entries.
Let me make something very clear though: just because I helped with your entries and was positive in my feedback doesn't mean I've really taken to the character and want to use your character as a notable member of the cast. Many characters will get a role though, and get panels where they say stuff, but some will of course become more central to the plot than others. Please don't take offense to this, but I'm working with such a large cast that's already got a lot to 'em already, so integrating a new set is gonna be tough work.
I'll make the big announcement about the results sometime after the 5th of January though, so please look forward to it! So um, let's take a moment to
Question! (read this ok)How would people feel if I added a few more OCs? But unlike the other OCs, it wouldn't be a contest. It's just I've been thinking about the cast and I feel there's still some slots where I feel that if they were filled, I'd be just that bit more satisfied with the overall story and how it'll all come together.Question! (read this ok) in Personal More Like This
I wouldn't be adding a huge amount of extras, and the winning OCs still have their significance too, but I just want to do a little more in terms of world building.
Now, these would be OCs I've gotten to know and love, ones that I already know how I'd corporate them. It would be about ten more characters approximately?
So would you all be open to that? I don't want people to feel cheated or anything, because many did entries and stuff. Please believe me though in that I love the entries I've selected and they're going to be integrated, definitely!
If people are real against it, I understand, but if you're all feeling upbeat and A-OK about this notion, let me know! Please, I want

This is an Axis Powers Hetalia doujinshi project. It features many of the canon characters, as well as OCs created by members of the fandom.
The doujinshi draws inspiration from The Secret World of Arrietty, but the overall storyline of this doujinshi is by melonstyle (who is running the group through her rp account lupang-hinirang). Axis Powers Hetalia belongs to Hidekaz Himaruya.
the current event: The OC Contest
If you wish to learn more about this AU doujinshi, and even have your own Hetalia OC take part in it, please look through the journals below.
What is Elementary? [UPDATED]
Events Prior To Story (UPDATE W/ SHIPS)WIP WIP WIPEvents Prior To Story (UPDATE W/ SHIPS) in Personal More Like This
Here are just a list of events prior to the story's beginning that may be wise to keep track of when working out your OC characters.
While the members of the Geography subject were outside the school on one of their missions (scouting out, getting to know the area to find out more possible resources, etc), Antonio (Spain) has gone missing. This happens a week before Lovino (South Italy) gets turned into a Class Dweller. He is romantically linked to Bella (Belgium) and she is incredibly worried. Many are assuming he's dead, but most are unwilling to admit it.
Alfred (America) used to be in the Gym Subject, but he and Ivan (Russia) didn't get along, to the point that Alfred volunteered to join the Reception Subject instead. It certainly helped that many of his good friends were already in Reception.
Sadiq (Turkey) and Ivan still don't get along though, but neither one wants to shift Subjects, same with their respective groups of friends. T
Mall Dwellers (UPDATE!)These are Dwellers who are separate from the Class Dwellers of Elementary at Hetalia High School. Neither society knows of one another, but they are both 'small people'. The difference however, is that the owner of Hetalia Mall actually knows about the existence of the Mall Dwellers and has deliberately allowed them to live in the Mall of make use of it at night-time. This is a secret that the Mall Owner Catarina (Female Portugal) has been able to keep from the public. She is friends with the Mall Dwellers. The Mall Dwellers don't have their own specific uniforms and wear whatever they like. They tend to roam more freely, not having to do as much as the Class Dwellers in order to stay alive successfully, due to the fact that Catarina is happy enough to keep them well looked after.Mall Dwellers (UPDATE!) in Personal More Like This
This mall has a lot there for them too: it has clothes stores, a foodcourt, a movie theatre, a games arcade (Mall Dwellers may be small, but they do take amusement in working together to win the games), a sup
the cameo list (permission?)mostly just here to keep track of faces that I wanna use here and there, lmao. None of these characters are necessarily going to do much, but in a story like this, in order to flesh out this AU, I kinda need background faces? Yeah. XDthe cameo list (permission?) in Personal More Like This
:iconnadjagreen: Antarctica / Jerri - Science
:iconhatofulhato: Manila / Lorenzo - Science
:iconkirinkv: Manila / Gabriella - Mathematics
:icone-chan12: Philippines / Mariella - Reception
:iconangelliyesmadirector: Philippines / Lia (nickname seeing as we already have a Rosalia) - Cafeteria
Most of these will just be regular students that may pop up in classroom/school scenes during the day. Some will be going to the school that Lovino/Kiku/etc go to, but others may be students at Cahaya's school. Some of them may also have part-time jobs at the Mall where the Mall Dwellers reside. Either way, these Giants don't really have any knowledge of Dwellers actually existing, though some might believe in the 'tiny people
The Subjects (UPDATED THE CONTEST WINNER OCS)ENGLISHThe Subjects (UPDATED THE CONTEST WINNER OCS) in Personal More Like This
In the main English classroom, there are two groups featured within this Subject. This is where the youngest Class Dwellers grow up and receive their main education.

Information About Mel's OCs Already InvolvedI figured this may be a helpful page for those whose characters share a subject with, or are also Mall Dwellers, etc. So when working out character relations, I hope this can help people! ^^ I will also update this with character references over time. ^^Information About Mel's OCs Already Involved in Personal More Like This
Colombia / Carmen
A sassy, energetic lady who knows how to get her way. She has some siblings - Elisa (Venezuela), Manuel (Ecuador) and (whichever Panama OC wins this spot, bahaha) - and she considers herself the boss over them. She's a tough cookie with a snappy temper, who is perhaps a little too superficial at times. She wishes that she weren't a Dweller and could go exploring the world the way normal humans do. Dwellers will often see Carmen hanging out at the cafe in the food court, the cinema when it's closed to the human public and open to the dwellers, around the fashion stores and sometimes the games arcade when she feels like challenging the guys!
