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
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. When they turn 13, they will move to another Subject depending on their specialities and receive further training towards their new jobs. There are teachers in this Subject who look after the younger members and educate them about the world that they know. The leader of this subject is Elizabeta.
The Teachers of this Subject Include: Elizabeta (Hungary), Noi (Laos OC), Feliks (Poland), Joao (Male Portugal - ponytail design) and Estelle (Martinique OC).
The Students of this Subject Include: Alois (Kugelmugel), Peter (Sealand), Ashleigh (Wy), Ted (Vikesland OC), Yasmin (Spratly Islands OC), Mirari (Timor Leste OC) and Nina (Redonda OC).

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.

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
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

First of all, thanks to those who have advertised the contest so far - and even moreso to those who have entered itself! We're nearing the end of October, which will mean only two months until the end. So far I've had entries mostly for Reception and Cafeteria. Here's my personal thoughts:
I would like to see more entires for the other subjects as well. While I'm not going to disallow entrants into the subjects most characters have chosen thus far, in terms of character appearance status, people picking a subject like Reception may find that others alr
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
What is Elementary?This is the name of the underground civilisation at Hetalia High. The civilisation is run by the Class Dwellers, who are spread across the different classrooms of the school, with their subgroups being known as the 'Subjects'. Each Subject's Class Dwellers play a different role within this society, which essentially allows for the Class Dwellers to run a small city within Hetalia High. Each Subject has a different version of the same uniform for its Class Dwellers, which allows each member to know who belongs to which Subject (and further allows everyone to know each other's special role). The most important thing to note about Class Dwellers is that they are Nocturnal, so they sleep when the Giants are at school and they are awake when the school has been closed off to Giants for the night.What is Elementary? in Personal More Like This
Elementary has an underground beneath Hetalia High, that can be accessed by the Class Dwellers. The more elderly Dwellers tend to stay down there, and the underground web can connect up to the Subj

Why we shouldn't 'Self-Insert'.I'm sorry, but I've seen one too many self-insert Hetalia OCs.Why we shouldn't 'Self-Insert'. in Personal More Like This
First off, self-inserts do NOT automatically make an interesting and well researched Hetalia OC. Sorry to burst anyone's bubble. Especially if it doesn't even represent a country/city/village and is a citizen that just so happens to meet the personification of their country and is magically allowed to go to world meetings before getting into a relationship with their country.
No one likes these.
And in my honest opinion, it just makes you look silly.
If you're going to make an OC for Hetalia, don't base it off of yourself, and try to keep it to an actual personification of a city/village/country. Base it off of what that country would have.
For example, if I were to make a Pakistan, I wouldn't give her red hair, blue eyes, and dress her in shorts. If I were to make a Pakistan, I'd want to look up common looks and clothing from that country.
Now, with self-inserts, there comes the reader insert fanfiction we have floatin

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! -

wow, ok, just read the journal and read the comments, you'll see
but yeah, the basic summary is:
1. people can create OCs of whatever they want
2. So a lot of people make Philippines OCs. So?
3. Himaruya isn't going around creating characters for every nation, he doesn't have the time for all that. So again, people are allowed to make their own OCs. Hell, I've seen people make OCs of already existing characters. It happens.
4. MaPhilIndo is a perfectly legit grouping and I like it because it helps encourage fans from these countries to get along more and blablablabla. Linking the China/Philippines group just to attack it ain't okay - look, if the journal creator was wanting to link a pairing group where the characters involved don't even have relations, go link a PruPiri group or something, rofl. Even so, linking groups just to attack them ain't okay. And JaPhilIndo involves countries with legitimate rel

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)

When did you start drawing? | All kids draw if you wedge a marker in their stubby paws, I just never stopped. I was a VERY shy kid with no self-respect whatsoever, I latched onto art almost immediately as a source of praise and redemption. Now that I have cheapened my lifelong love of art into a form of surrogate self-worth, the real answer is twelve. That summer a combination of questioning my future career, reading too many art books, and falling suddenly in love with Disney movies went critical, and I decided I wanted to be an animator. I committed myself from then on to taking drawing seriously. (Not long after that Disney culled its 2D feature film studios. I decided to pretend like that didn't happen, or might be reversed.)
How did you start drawing? | First, at midnight, I spread the entrails of a freshly killed weasel on the altar of the Mighty Satan... Ah. No, sorry. That was how I got my good looks.

But of course, we have a few rules that we should follow:
1: You can't tell the other people that your making the gift for and of who you are
it would ruin the whole point to it! it is called a 'Secret' Santa, right? so keep it a secret buut...I can ask the person what you want and I won't say your name. vuv

It wouldn't be fair if you didn't make a gift and someone else made you something. That isn't right, so please do make a gift for them.
