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.

Pff, so true! Fuyumi (the blondie that is currently my icon) once declared that I was the "cameraperson". I've given up trying to coerce them to what I wanted them to do... Given that the way it ended up going (with her meeting one of my other OCs Maeda and then becoming friends with Maeda), I'm just not complaining anymore. It's more fun this way!

Well, even though my Plain-Jane OCs have minds of their own, but I still control them though [mutual relationship] :) :) + As for my Mary-Sue OCs they have minds of their own too, but they won't listen to me no ways [we have like a love-hate relationship thing] hahahaha lol :D :D

I got characters that COULD qualify for the complete monster trope.

So-much-yes. My main character, Denece, has changed so radically and I don't even know how or why...O.o I swear whenever I create a new world a parallel dimension is created and my characters actually become real and I'm just watching what happens next. I have a vivid imagination.

Yes they are. :) It can be kinda weird and creepy at time, I just hope they don't find a way to dimension hop to mine. XD I would have some explaining to do.

How many OC's? Honestly, I've lost track of how many I have. I have full stories full of them, little snippets that may never see the light of day, musings that are just waiting to take form..... :D

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!"

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
