@allenT I never thought of inserting fan characters in the story. I have tier on patreon that offers I would create a character for people and put them in the background, but I myself would never let them control the story. but you know, it could be fun to see if people made their own stories in this world, even without the official characters included.
@MissEljebel Yes, inserting yourself into story just so you can ship yourself with official character, that's the classic of the internet. I think I would personally find it hilarious and cringe at the same time. I think if the story grows big enough, it will happen, but you know, just don't take it seriously. Because if someone would ask me: Can my character be canon and shipped with the main character? I would be like:HAHAHAHAHAHA.... no
@uselessgoddess Yes, once you get big enough, it will just happen, you can't stop it. It's a natural part of having fans, so I wouldn't worry about it. in the end, what matters is the canon story and characters, but I think it's a good thing to let people know they can create characters for your world, mainly if it can support such thing. If someone creates OC to be shipped with your character, so what? We can all just laugh it off and continue with our lives, it's just a fictional character after all. Actually, looking at some cringy OCs would be hilarious, then I can appreciate the good ones. And when it comes to porn, you can't stop it, so I don't think it's worthy to be stressed about. I would never let someone interrupt my story with their OCs, but I would allow people to have fun.
@thel3tterm Yeah, trying the way into the story. Well, we're lucky we still have the word "NO", but I can see what you mean.
@AmazementComics I don't think OCs should be inserted into the story, they can be used as background characters so the world feels alive, but not as actual characters for the story. but you know, people can have fun Dungeons and Dragons style.
@Prometheus Ah yes, changing the character to suit you and your OC. the common practice of fans and big corporations,that can’t stand the character is white or straight or something like that, lol. You can’t monitor it, you can’t control it. People do stupid stuff all the time. But I know that if people would take my characters and change their race, sex, anything just to shit them, I would take it and ridicule them as much as I can. Because if you can’t love a character as it was created, you are not a fan, but an idiot. Such people think they can take someone’s else work and changes to suit them. NO.
@pilot-obvious Well, work on it
@amortelito Sounds like a nice place to live, lol.
@BlunderingAlbatross Even if they interfere with the canon, I don’t think it matters. in the end, you are the author and you determine what happens in the story. So even if they do it, it doesn’t matter until you approve and that’s totally your decision.
