Minds of Their Own Stamp by Purplefire40 Minds of Their Own Stamp by Purplefire40
EDIT: Wow, I can't believe how popular this little thing has gotten!!! Thank you so much everyone for taking the time to favorite and/or comment! I appreciate!!! *throws glitter*

Ok, I jumped on the bandwagon and made a stamp!

Have you ever been writing or drawing, minding your own business, when all of a sudden your character(s) are in a place you don't remember going? You look back through your notes/writing/sketches/drawings and realize that your character(s) have been taking you for a ride... and you realize that what your character(s) came up with was more awesome than what you would have come up with on your own.

Oh wow... This is the story of my life right here. I have characters who basically told me he hated the way I posed him, and now he was going to show me he could be heroic too. "You make me look like an unsympathetic jerk? Well then! I'll just rewrite all this and make it so that I'm redeemed!"

I agree, my character Star started out as a goody goody two shoes princess type. Suddenly she was like "Nope im gonna be a badass fire-bender warrior type with a bad attitude!" XD

Yeah, my character Jupiter Jovian is a pompous little guy with an overinflated ego, and HE certainly does.
Also, most of my characters are wacky, over-the-top, whoop-de-do types, so this is bound to happen. :D

We'd rather have over the top characters who are interesting though, right? Who wants to have little robots that always do what they are programed? :D

Those are the best writing sessions, when you don't have any expectations of your character.

I don't know what characters do to their creator's brain, but I'm pretty sure everyone with OCs is a little crazy. :D

Yeaaaahhhhh. This describes my characters so much.

I meant to use Vee getting hurt as inspiration for another character to fight harder... Instead she died.

I meant to write a deranged maniac throwing a temper tantrum... Instead I wrote some insight into his mind.

I'm using this stamp.

this totally fits me! Just the other day, I was describing a story I'd written, and my friend asked, "Do you write these stories, or do these characters write them?"
I had to reply with "Sometimes I'm not sure."
