Ok first of all some advice nobody is going to listen to but I'll add anyway. Then I'll get to the rest
OCXCannon Is EXTREMLY difficult to pull off especially with any of the major characters. So as a general rule of thumb unless you are an amazing and experienced writer DON'T DO IT!
If you are going to do it DO NOT PAIR YOUR OC WITH A CANNON CHARACTER YOU HAVE A CRUSH ON! Trust me people can tell. This tends to skew up your prospective and make you make the cannon character act in very out of character ways.
That said I know people aren't going to listen so lets begin:
If you are going to do ocXcannon there is a general rule of thumb to bear in mind. Under no circumstances should you shift the cannon character's personality or actions to match your OC!
Pairing an OC with a cannon is a very different process then any other type of romantic writing you do. Its' not like OCXOC which if I haven't made it clear already you should be doing unless you're a very
The Character’s Appearance
[Try to include detailed description of character’s physical characteristics (shape of nose, freckles, moles, scars, shape of eyes, accessories, etc.), ethnicity, common attire, etc. DO NOT JUST PUT DOWN WORDS!]
About the Character
[Be as detailed as you can with your character’s personality. DO NOT JUST PUT DOWN WORDS! Go into depth with your character.]
The Character’s Relationship With Others
(How people view your character in general)
You were oblivious to his hungry eyes, chatting away on the phone. Your provocative seat on the edge of your work desk was unintentional, a simple action to alleviate your sore high-heeled feet. Your dark lips formed unintelligible words, laughing occasionally on something said on the other end.
Roy was, for once, desperately trying to work. A thick manilla folder of documents still needed to be checked over, and crumpled handfuls of forms swamped his in-box. He couldn't even raise his ink pen, frozen with his hand perched half-way to the paper.
Your eyes flickered over to him, puzzled at his gaping features. You glanced down, then giving a soft giggle. You modestly adjusted your skirt to its normal length.
After the Promised Day[
So exactly how does alchemy work in fma?
Well.. After analyzing the hell out of almost every instance of its use I could possibly remember and then doing hours more research. (Is it normal for me to have this much of an obsession? Yeah... I don't think soo ANYHOO ) I finally am ready to put together my guidebook result of what I have learned. This is still a work in progress so bear with me (g-d help me make this good)
How Alchemy Works
Ok, the first thing to understand is that alchemy is a science; this is what differentiates it from magic. This is why it's so much of a skill to learn.
What is actually happening when you preform alchemy?
Alchemic acts as stated by the series are consistent of three stages; Analysis, deconstruction, and reconstruction. Let's go over each of these
This is probably the most unclear one of the three. Beyond just the basic knowledge of what it is
wish it was only a dream

You were quietly arranging the flowers sitting on the window sill. You had no idea why, because they were perfectly fine. Oh, that's right...the Elric Brothers were in your house. your house. Well, your dad's house but...they are still here! They needed to ask your father about something. You sat on the chair closest to the window. They sat on the couch across from you and your father. While Edward, the oldest of the two, and your father discussed alchemy you couldn't help but take glances at the large armor sitting near the alchemist. You heard stories about them, especially since you were into alchemy yourself. But this is the first time you ever actually saw them. Or, him.
You wanted to ask, but you're sure he's heard those questions a mi
Hello, everyone, this is NaokoElric2250 and this is my first ever rant.
I shall begin with a general statement:
Female authors who write Shonen, (or any story featuring main male protagonists); need to get their act together. It is disgusting just how much they will discriminate against their own gender, and need to start learning to respect it.
In some cases, their level of sexism against women is on par with that of male authors, and fans seem to not notice or dismiss the fact that they use the exact same sexist traits and tropes as the males, purely because they are female, which is classic Double Standard sexism in itself. I am speaking of course, of the likes of Masashi Kishimoto, Noriaki "Tite" Kubo and others like them.
Their stories are often devoid of a good, smart, strong, knowledgeable (as in knowing what is happening in the story, sharing the knowledge of the male characters) female presence who dress sensibly. Instead, they
Ok FMA art and style is really frustrating in the fact that theirs always a freaking exception! Any rule you make, any! Its always like "but oh! So and so has..." yea-no. Is is to much to ask for a little conformity here? Realy!?
Ok that rant put aside...
THERE ARE SOME EXEPTIONS TO ALMOST EVERY "RULE" I PUT DOWN HERE
So technically yes, you could give your OC bright purple hair with a pink fringe, but bear in mind that that will look very out of place in the FMA world. So there's just one thing for you to bear in mind when breaking these rules: Subtlety. The broken rule should fit in with the rest of the FMA world and not stand out like "holy cow where are they from! It should not be the first thing you notice when seeing the character, nor should there be two broken rules in the same OC. Ready then? So lets begin
This is one of the few absolute rules DO NOT GIVE YOUR OC AN EYE COLO
