Banged Kanda/Allen/Lavi on the first mission? Totes realistic.

You can't fight wearing that.

Kanda doesn't swoon.

Boobs don't look like that.

Allen isn't a womanizing drunkard (stripper, perhaps /shot).

Care to credit that base / screenshot you usedtraced?

Where's her tummy? Lacking a few vital organs there, mate.

Same Innocence look and abilities as a main character? Creative.

Just synchronized with their Innocence and fighting Level Three Akuma? MIND BLOWN.

Bad news - your Japanese character looks... not Japanese.

Big boobs is Mary-Sueish/unrealistic? Wanna tell that to the well-endowed women of the world?

Is she supposed to look like a twig? Snap!

Lenalee doesn't act like Hitler.

Hey, your OC's so light in weight, she could blow away like a feather! Woosh!

Same scar that sees Akuma like Allen's does? Orly?

Half Noah, half Akuma? ....howwhy.

Two Innocence? Riiiight.

Lavi doesn't-- ... m'kay, maybe he does.

Why bother wearing anything at all?

When did he become a rapist? Oh, when he met your OC? They fell in love after that too? M'kay.

EVERYONE hates Lenalee? Guess I missed that in the manga/anime.

A fifteenth Noah more powerful than the Earl? Mmmmhm.

Lovechild of two males (KandaxAllen; LavixAllen; etc)? Totally.

How many long-lost sisters does Allen have again?

Oh, yeah, underage people get banged allllll the time at the Order.

Four year old general, you say?

You expect your underage OC to fight a war while prego. Bless you.

Banging Kanda, Allen, Lavi, Tyki, and Neah? Ho shit, dudette.

ARE YOU INCAPABLE OF CHOOSING ONE MAN? MAX OF TWO? NO? GOOD GAWD.


*Ahem* I'm always asked what my thoughts are on certain kinds of D.Gray-Man fan characters. So here ya'll have it. All I did was browse around Fanfiction.net and deviantART. Yeup. Chi is opinionated. But don't let that ruin your fun in creating fan characters the way you want to. Just keep in mind that there's a huge portion of the DGM fandom that aren't too fond of what they view as unrealistic fan characters c:

I have two things to say. Not mad, just saying:

1.It CAN be okay to have JUST synchronized and fight level threes and even above, BUT there has to be a story behind it. Like the reason for mine was she had come into contact with not only Akuma, but also Noah before. (She only saw them) And is friends with a exorcist. She had hit her head while getting pushed out of the way so she doesn't rmember the encounter, and barely remembers her friend.
With a story like that, I think it's okay.

2.Kanda doesn't look Japanese either, but he is too.

Just some things to think about :3

ChikitaWolf Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
No probs - I like healthy discussion!

1. I'd have to disagree on this, because having just synchronized with Innocence doesn't immediately equate to a ginormous power-up in skills and abilities. Innocence's power grows off of the bond between itself and the Exorcist as they fight Akuma (hence, "synchronization" - the higher the syncro, the more powerful the weapon).

While your character (who sounds quite interesting, might I add o: ) may have had past run ins with things related to the Holy War, she wasn't fighting with her Innocence (if I'm reading your comment correctly). For instance, a comparison to this would be: having been in fights/brawls before, and therefore upon touching a sword for the first time, being a master swordsman. Canonically, Hoshino even made it clear that when Allen got his sword, he trained with Kanda to be able to use it affectively.

Furthermore on a canonical note, Allen Walker, who had trained with Cross for years, had issues taking on a Level 2, despite his experience with using his Innocence. Even throughout the Miranda arc, he had problems and hurdles in taking down Level 2s, despite his past training with a General. Also, the highest immediate syncro rate we've seen is from Timothy, who was able to take over a Level 2 Akuma. However, he wasn't even able to scratch a Level 3. We've also seen the struggles from Lenalee, Lavi, and Bookman in trying to fight Eshi, the Level 3 Akuma (all of whom, once again, were experienced in both fighting and using their Innocence). Hell, Lenalee was forced to max synchro, risking her life in her efforts to defeat Eshi. To say a character who has just synchronized with their Innocence for the first time could fight Level 3s (and even above?!) simply isn't realistic, looking at these examples from the manga.

2. Do you mean by Hoshino's artwork or . . .? Because Kanda does have the style of the Japanese clothing-wise, as well as the black hair and whatnot. You look at some of the other OCs on dA, and you'll find incredibly tall, voluptous women with natural blonde or ginger or whatever hair. That certainly isn't an attempt to portray a Japanese character, don't you think? (Note, I'm not being stereotypical, just realistic on an ethnic scale).

Sorry for the long ass response xD You indeed made me think!

RavenTheFallen Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2013
Okay, I agree on the Akuma part...

And mostly on the Kanda part.

The thing is you ARE right when it comes to such a thing as bright natural ginger hair, but it IS okay to be a little different. Like my OC who is Kanda's hight AND Japanese, BUT like you said other than her eyes (which I couldn't help but make green)she has mostly Asian features. AND (because I knew she would need a reason for her height and eyes) it is even revealed later when she was talking to Allen about her mother that her grandfather was from Britten, so she's not 100% Japanese.


Thanks alot you've really made me thing, and change my OC for the better!

I'm loving this so much :XD: Hit's the nail right on the head with your points, and while I can understand wanting to have an interesting and appealing character, you can easily do it without ripping off cannon and being more original (which is kinda the purpose of an OC...) and stop bashing the god damn females in every series

I've refrained from doing so in DGM101 since everyone has different views on OCs, and I don't believe it'd be fair of us to do so due to that. I mean, it's DGM101. Not DGM101-your-OC-must-conform-to-our-views-on-what's-realistic, ya know? Plus, you've got people who just create OCs for the fun of it, not to be realistic... so meh, it's too messy.

Eeeexactly. It's okay to express your love obsession of DGM, but please, maker's breath, show a little respect to the effort that goes into each character and page of the manga!
And while logic doesn't have a strong foothold in anime, there are certain things that just are certain things just CAN'T happen in pregnancy. If ya can't bend over or get a real breath HOW THE FRACK DO YOU FIGHT?!?!?

And Allen, the poor guy must have such shell-shock! Never mind the crazy stuff love-children. Riiiiiiight :iconheplz: He's not only reunited with his long-lost family, but there's a freakin ZOO of 'em! *sniff* I--it's touching, really

Annnd, they all have white hair! Ya know, despite the fact that Allen's white hair isn't genetic, but let's just ignore that part and enjoy the lovely family reunion of a bajillion twins/triplets/whateverthemess and long lost sisters/brothers! And they can compare their cursed eyes while they're at it, since they share that with Allen too.

LMFAO

And the fact that, unlike today, it wasn't a mark of pride to become pregnant before being married. Especially barely after going through puberty. And when the father of the child is either much loved by us sane peoples, or likely to take Mugen to any crazed fangirl schemes, or both

Yup, saw this too. Srsly, not that crazed fans think logically, but, just bare with me here. Since Allen never met his parents/family, granted, there is some creative freedom. HOWEVER. In the anime we see before becoming cursed, his hair was brown, so at least one parent had it, so we can assume it's likely any siblings would have it too, though not necessarily. Also, he has gray eyes, so again, we can assume any siblings could have them too
Plus . . . Allen is moyashi for a reason. I think it would make sense to have any siblings be of slim figure as well (and not with a rack to compensate). Ya know, make it to where one can say "yeah, I can see them being related"
And, parasitic innocence? That's rare enough among exorcists in general, let alone a family

Maybe they randomly spawned and were destined to the same fate o.O you'd better watch out, Earl

Hah, that annoys me as well. Some of those are just ridiculous! It's like people don't put a lot of thought into their characters... So many people don't do OCxCanon pairings well, either. If you're going to make the canon character completely OOC, WHYYYY is my only question. It just doesn't make a good story if they're OOC the whole time!

As for the two Innocence bits, that frustrates me as well, especially when there's no reason for it. I confess to having a DGM OC who had two pieces of Innocence until I completely went over and redid her character (when I turned Yuuki Koizuma into Liesel Sanki). I completely changed almost everything about her - including getting rid of the second piece of Innocence.
However, Liesel's new piece of Innocence does allow her to temporarily use other Innocence. It's because her Innocence, Verlegen, has the power of transferral, so it can transfer other pieces of Innocence to Liesel. But since Liesel's not the actual accomodator of the other piece of Innocence, it's really dangerous for her to do this. So like that I guess it kind of works.

But ugggh bad OCs... There's so many over used story lines in so many fandoms though. Like in Blue Exorcist Satan has so many other children, and Rin has so many sisters as well. Ugh. I'm sure you've seen the "triplet" OCs in that fandom....

As for pairings, I don't even pair my OCs with canon characters anymore. I've given up. I just don't feel confident in my/people's ability to do OCxCanon well. I have no problem whatsoever with other people doing it, I just can't do it myself anymore. The last OCs I've created have no romantic interest in canon characters at all :iconmingplz:

wow long comment.... Btw I was previously "sandarikka" I just changed my username.

Sandarikkaaaaaaaa - glad you told me lmao totes didn't recognize /lazycry

Exactly! At that point, why not just throw out DGM and make your own story? They've basically turned the character into their own with how much OOC-ness they've done! D:

Ohhhh, that's neat! It has a similarity to the method Timothy's Innocence uses o: If it can be done to Akuma, why not Innocence pieces, after all?

Oh gawd yeah. After making my AnE OCs Raka and Vanna, I just decided to keep them out of the fray, haha. Hobos ftw. Hell, I could probably make them original characters if I wanted to o:

Kira is supposed to eventually pair up with Allen (at least, that's what the readers wanted, lmao), but at the rate things are going, I don't think it's gonna work out. The Exorcists are much too busy fighting the war and trying to survive - you can't really get a legitimate relationship in there (unless it's just momentary lust). Plus, Allen's in the shithole xD If any pairings were to occur, I'd think it'd be after the war (and I don't think Kira's gonna survive that merp). It's tough trying to get an OC into a realistic pairing with ANY canon character /flops

I recognized mine xD I accidentally made my OC into half akuma and half Noah,even though I meant her to be only half akuma xD Earl experimented and wanted to get new Noah,but she failed to become one,he disliked it and decided to turn her into an akuma,since she was a living,she also failed on that xD

However some/many tends to make Canon characters too ooc ((I have done that and erased the fanfictions where they were ooc xD)) After that mistake,I started to dislike CanonxOC pairings since most of time,Canon was too ooc and wouldn't do things what people makes them to do.

Manpregnancy makes me always cringe *cringes*

It's funny how many makes their characters to hate Lenalee and also Canon ones. It's like they don't follow DGM world.

Also Japanese exorcists makes me to giggle,since only the akuma lives in Japan. Whole country was closed for 300 years and ruled by Earl/akumas,so there's no way that Exorcist could come there without getting eaten by akumas.

I did NOT know Liza was a Noah oAo
Though, the Earl experimenting could make sense, considering how frustrated he is at how slow the war is at in coming to an end. But then, he didn't seem to approve of the Order experimenting.. hmmm. Talk about a whole new area of theorizing xD

amg poor Liza xD;
I remember reading through your new ref for her - at the bottom she said something like "I'm tired of experiments"? That made me laugh |D

I am not a fan of OOC-ness. At all. I can understand a slight OOC-ness as a writer gets used to the character, but full out OOC-ness just makes me cringe D:
It's really hard to pull off CanonxOC pairings. The Exorcists are much to wrapped up in survival to be dealing with romances. Not to mention all the missions. If a Canon-OC pairing were to be as realistic as possible (and not just lust, but actual, legitimate intimacy), it would most likely have to be after the war.

MANPREGNANCY. HOW. /flips a table

When dislike for a character leads to soiling canon characters' original characterizations, I find it sad :I Hoshino created her characters as they are - it's unprofessional to present them so out of character to satisfy your need to hate on a character. But whatevs, that's my opinion |D;

Oh, gosh, yes, lmao! I keep forgetting about that xD

She was,but she didn't had any Noah or akuma powers though xD People can do things when they're desperate,like when Order tried to make apostles but they turned into Fallen Ones.

Lol,two sides experimented with her and when Hevlaska damaged her akuma form for letting her to synchronize with her weapon xD

Some OCxCanon are good,as far as Canon stays into character xD But mostly they're like for getting fangastic smut xD

I have no idea how it's possible,even one movie "Junior" freaked me out with it. It was one yaoi fanfiction about Poker Pair and KandaxLavi. It was good vampire fanfiction until the last chapter where was manpregnancy. O_O

Many hates Tyki for hurting Allen in China. I'm surprised that no one doesn't hate Chaoji,he was most hated character and now Lenalee gets all the blame? It's mostly yaoi fans who hates Lenalee (except some)
