OC - Soul Stamp by Alphares OC - Soul Stamp by Alphares
This stamp is flying around in my head since several weeks. I'm not able to use stamps (still not a big friend of premium memberschips etc) but I really like collecting them. I'm really picky about them though because stamps tell a lot about you and I don't want to fav something with a message that doesn't represent my thoughts.

So, I was looking for some good OC stamps but I have to admit, I was a little bit dissapointed. So I decided to make one for myself.

The message is easy...
My OCs are not only children of my mind, they are a very important part of myself. They represent different goals, subjects or even images of myself how I would've been if things changed in my life. Some might know that I have a very....let's say strange/difficult way to handle OCs. I don't want to explain this now because it would need years to write down every detail.

I admit I'm really tempted to write a little essay about OCs and their meaning in a persons psyche/ day....

So here's my big big thanks to all of you!

Makes a lot of sense tbh.
Maximus is calm and persistant, much like me sometimes.
Haril is cocky and arrogant, like I am when I feel anger inside me.
Avil is intelligent and very crafty. Like I am when I have an assignment to complete.
Glandi is shy and friendly. The part of me that yearns to have friends.
Raii, well. He knows truth and power. I know truths and I have power over many things.
Vern is a thief and neutral. I sometimes burgle and I usually do not take a side.

Well done Alphares.

OC's certainly do stand for different parts of your own person.

For example, one of my OC's is very child-like, optimistic and innocent and I believe that he stands for the part of me that longs to be pure, carefree, and innocent.

Another one of my OC's has a dark, shameful past and is very shy/withdrawn (also wears a long, dark hooded cape all the time). I believe that he also is a lot like me, wanting to hide myself from everyone.

So anyways yeah, you should totally write that essay (if you didn't already, that is *me derp*), that would be awesome :D

Same here. I did hear people say that most of their characters arent any part of them before and I find that weird because I have like more than 40 characters and they all are like tiny pieces of me x3 And theres more to come, its crazy.

Oh wow xD I don't have nearly that many characters. At least, it doesn't seem to be that way. I have a group of about 8 (give or take) that I really focus on, and the rest just are kind of like side characters. When I counted the ones that came to my mind right away, I counted about 13-14.

I think anything we come up with, it's like we take our own image (our perception of ourselves) and put it into whatever it is that we create. That's why too it hurts when something happens to our creations. A little bit of us dies then.
