It may be true that we create our OCs and that they are inspired by other characters or fiction, but one of the strongest inspirations for them can be ourselves. Often, we create an OC's personality based on our own, or write their dialogue as if they were us. So the purpose of this Journal is to point out similarities between one's OCs and themselves.
1. Pick one of your OCs that is similar to you.
2. Write out the similarities between yourself and that OC in as much detail as you like.
3. Tag 3 other artists.
4. If you are tagged, it is your choice whether or not you have to do this Journal.
My main gal, Rebecca the Fly-Girl:
Ya know, for someone as private as me, this should be a pain to do.
Let's start off with the biggest element Rebecca and I share: Humor. Most of my characters have a sense of humor but Rebecca's rivals my own. Here's a segment from FG#3:Inside, Rebecca distantly watched the trees fly by while Booger Boy calmly drove.
"Interesting turn of events, huh?" seeing Rebecca's mood, Booger Boy tried to start a conversation. "You're not the talkative type are you?"
"I'm sorry. It's just the fact that I'm sitting here naked in a car with a guy who I just met that's taking me to who knows where," Rebecca mocking scoffed. "If you weren't a super hero, I'd call the cops on your ass or you'd meeting the receiving end of my acid vomit." Grinning, she finished with, "There. Talkative enough for ya?"
Well besides the naked
and acid vomit
, that's the usual attitude you'll see when talking to me. XD Most of the things Rebecca has said are based on crap that came out of my mouth.
The next element? Well let's say we've seen how angry I can get on DA. Yeah, Rebecca's foul and impulsive temper has to come from somewhere!
I've gotten pretty pissed at people and have said some nasty things.
Her situation at Hedison High harkens back to my days at high school. This part might get ugly. Hearing people talk about you behind your back, bullies that are jealous (Veronica) and that one bully that everyone seems to not notice (Brad). I'll get to more on that in a sec. The Frump battle from FG#1 was in a sense based on those feeling of just letting loose and beating the shit out of your tormentors. I had lot of those in high school.
There is one thing though that Rebecca has that I didn't in school. Friends.
I didn't have a Kath or Sarah in High School. Most of my days were huddled in a corner and drawing, looking over my shoulder, knowing a bully attack was imminent. The only friend outside DA I do
have moved to another state and to this day, we mostly talk over the phone. I did though take elements of him bugging me and including some into how Kath can annoy Rebecca.
Rebecca deals with an enemy based all too well on a nasty period in my life. That bully who's an utter two-face. Everyone sees them as an angel but when your alone with them, they're the devil. I dealt with a bully like that when I was 9. In a sense, that period in my life served as some inspiration for Veronica (I'm not going into detail on that). Anyhoo, I dealt with an abusive bully who tormented me endlessly and made nasty lies constantly. It wasn't just mental abuse but physical. It was ugly. I noticed something. Most of the big bads in my stories. Queen Bee. Agony. VE Deadpool, (SPOILERS) VE Gwen and later on in FG, Dr. Olivia Aranea.
Should I have mentioned the bully I dealt with as a 9 year old was a girl?
In a sense, the suffering Rebecca is dealing with from Brad is an eerily gender-reversed version of those events kinda. There are some moments where I wonder if Rebecca is a subconscious version of me...or some crap like that.
I mean when I designed her hair style, only until a year ago or so did I realize: "Holy shit. She's got my haircut."
Frump: Me being an ass.
Scott: Trying to help but ends up making things worse.
Herman: My ego. A lot of him is me but without the remorse.
