What in the name of all things cinnamon swirl is going on here? – Applejack (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)
Now that I have returned to reality after last weekends trip (which I will be writing about as soon as I get the pictures edited) I figured I would do a more light-hearted post. Since I have watched She-Ra and catching up on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic I have been entertaining the idea of creating original characters (OCs) and maybe even do some fanfiction related to both series. …And yes, I do watch both series and love them.
I have never really been into fanfiction or making original characters, but now I have slowly been getting more and more inspiration to do so. It’s a bit strange since I have only created original content before, back when I did some writing. Now I suddenly feel like creating based on something, which is admittedly a bit scary. I feel like I will have to re-watch She-Ra and catch up on MLP before I do anything properly. I wouldn’t want to write or create something that clashes too much with the original material.
It feels nice to have a bit of a creative spark again, even if it’s just a little one. Hopefully, I will get time to create something soon enough to publish somewhere. I most likely will keep most of my creations on my newly revived DeviantArt page since it doesn’t really fit with my blog. I have a few ideas already, but as said I will do a bit of research before publishing anything. Maybe I could post some snippets here though in case anyone is interested enough!
I have already created my OC for My Little Pony and she is quite adorable. She doesn’t have a Cutie Mark and lacks some other details though. I did a base design with generalzoi’s Pony Creator however and am quite happy with it! There could be some changes along the road, especially since I’m still debating the whole Alicorn part, but it is a solid base character. I also don’t really have any ideas besides her looks yet, but those things will probably come along the way. I’m not exactly in a hurry!
When it comes to She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, on the other hand, I’m starting to feel like I have a fully fledged character on my hands. I still need to figure out some way to get a picture of her (since I am horrible at drawing), but I do have a solid idea at least. However, I still don’t have a name for her. I might start writing something with her first, as soon as I have a name since I have a bit of a story idea already. I might also do just general fanfiction with She-Ra since I feel like there are a few things that could be fun to write. Haven’t decided yet.
…wow this post became very geeky, very quickly. As said I will most likely keep this kind of posts to a minimum and keep them more on my DeviantArt, so do feel free to follow me there to keep up to date with my fanfiction escapades!
