OCxCanon by Sharerlar OCxCanon by Sharerlar
(Description edited because my 14 / 15 year old self was really immature about the matter.)
Not to say that it's impossible.

I don't think it's right to pair an OC with a canon character if you cannot keep them in character.
Characters like say, Sasuke Uchiha would not give up his revenge for some Kunoichi that he knew from the leaf.
What's even more difficult to pull off is if the canon character is paired with someone else in canon already. It's just...well, rarely ever realistic? It's kind of hard to come up with an explanation about why the canon character is with your OC even though they're with, or married to someone else in canon. The only way I've seen that done right is through AUs or if the OC and Canon character break off their relationship sometime before the end game canon couple is a thing. 
You wanna do AUs for fun? Go for it!
You wanna pair your OC with your favorite canon character? Have a blast with it!
But don't bend the canon or change the character to fit your OC. If you want it to work so badly change your OC to fit the canon.
OCs are supposed to be just for fun, but don't limit yourself by refusing to change them or the relationship that they have.
If you can pull it off, by all means please pull it off, set the bar for good OCxCanon.
If not, there's nothing wrong with OCxOC!

I'm willing to have an open discussion.

Yeah, it's pretty rare to find a good OCxCanon ship.  They kind of annoy me sometimes if the canon character is really out of character.

Exactly, like? Give me a canon character acting in character and chances are I'm going to like the pairing.

Hey man, to each their own?
I have indeed heard of Aus! In fact, one of my favorite OCxCanon pairings I've seen is based off of if Edward and Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist didn't get married.
Honestly I know that there is such a thing called being nervous. And there really isn't anything wrong with that! But seeing same method of confessing used again and again... It just feels like the same story but with a different character, and it gets a little tiring after awhile. And besides there are many different ways nervousness can affect a person. It doesn't always have to be stuttering. Heck it could be obnoxiously loud yelling, or accidentally letting your feelings slip in a conversation. 

I mean in the end people are allowed to do what they want? I made this stamp years ago, and I honestly forget half of what my 14/15 year old self had written about this and my opinions on the matter have changed in the three years this has been on deviantart. 
I think my biggest issue I have with OC x Canon now is if they make the canon character OOC. 
Maybe I should go back and rewrite my description since it's probably due time for an update.

Yeah man that's a great idea
I mostly reacted out of anger towards this just because I'm used to getting shit on my OCs just because they're OCs and it almost feels like they don't even look at my OCs descriptions or even bother to read at least one chapter of my fics. They just gas on about how OCs are bad (and it's on too many sites to count)

bueno la mayoría de los ocs emparejados con Edward Elric,estan basados en la primera version del anime, creo que nunca te paraste a pensar en ello del todo, cierto?
en conclusion si esta basado en el primer anime (que no en el manga y segundo anime) yo creo que no hay ningun problema si hay chicas emparejados con el (lo llamo universo alterno) del resto que a afuerzas quieren emparejar a su oc estando ocn winry (en el segundo anime y elmanga) ni hablar

ahora, si yo entiendo que el ooc es algo inaceptable(lo detesto) pero se aplica a lo que sea
porque yo veo MUCHOS fics yaoi, donde hacen mucho ooc de sasuke (lo mismo con fics de parejas canon)
no me pareceria muy justo que solo se quejaran de una mary suexcanon, pero hicieran fiesta y alabanza a un fic canon, crack canon, non canon etc. con casi el mismo contenido,(tu sabes cursi, ooc,meloso con un happy end -aun si el personaje murio como en el caso de ulquiorra- familia y toda la cosa)

tu lo haz dicho, no sabes como concluira todo creo historias tan kilometricas como naruto, one piece, bleach y demas no sabes ni cuando acabaran, prohibirle a una chica emparejar su oc con esos personaje hasta que concluya la historia me suena un poco exagerado de tu parte, y no puedes decirles que esta bien o mal en ese punto (ahora que si te refieres power ups y una trama fuera del contexto original, estoy de acuerdo) no veo el problema que tenga una historia con un oc

en punto es que aunque el fandom parezca de unos cuantos, lo cierto es que es muy extenso y hay lugar para todos (asi sean chicas con ocs) hay de gustos a gustos, el problema es que por lo general las personas con tu opinion quieren crear un regimen de lo que debe o no hacer un fancharacter y solo darle supremacia a lo que creen correcto,sin considerar a otros, trantado de aislar esa parte del fandom que les molesta (los ocs) en un rincon donde no les estorben
esta bien es tu opinion, esta bienb si no te gusta o no te gustan ciertos aspectos (que yo no veo del todo mal)  pero creo debes dejar a los demas, ser como quieren
de todos modos no van desaparecer y no veo el sentido molestar o quejarse de un chica (generalmente joven) con un simple fancharacter.
algo que ustedes no entienden es que de igual modo nunca sera canon y tendran la dicha de nunca verlo en el canon original, (no es genial? =) )si quieren lo pueden ignorar, ya que nadie los fuerza a apreciar el ocxcanon o los fancharacters, es como te he dicho una extension del vasto fandom.

Same thing pretty much. If the OC isn't good or the couple makes absolutely no sense, chances are I'm going to personally not care for it. Doesn't mean you can't do it. It's just my own opinion.

I don't even do fan fiction anymore I did for along time, then I thought wow that's just stupid at least to me. Cause think about it you end up doing a OC all that work, and for what? you don't even get the credit cause the fandom you don't own. I'm doing my own Novel and put my own yaoi, works fine.

Seriously though, I'm gonna be honest, I have my own APH CanonXOC and the canon falls in love with my oc. Why? It's not because my oc Soreina Is a Mary sue and it's Also not because I made the canon character OOC. it's because in the anime, the canon character really is a flirting womanizer XD

But still! I agree with you on this! :)

That's why I think twice before writing about OC x canon (I apologize if something I write doesn't makes sence, auto corrector uuugh).
I keep thinking “But would he do this?” “No, I think it is OOC”... Sometimes I overthink, but is better than just post anything that comes into my mind.

ACTUALLY I'm killing myself to do something about it MAKING SOME SENSE(while some people just throw there because is cute(I made this, a long time ago and now I look back and say: "What was wrong with me?" )
And me creating an OC trying to balance it is like: "But that... Is too sue. BUT if I remove this... But then it will sound like 'anti-sue' so... AFDFDASDDSFASFAS"

I'm with you 100% about this!:D


This is exactly how I feel about the Sonic and TMNT fandoms. I always see so many OCs paired with Shadow the most in Sonic, while most OCs are paired with the 4 turtles in tmnt.

Now my only pet peeve with these is that these characters already have canon pairs. I hate it when fangirls pair themselves with characters that already have canon pairs. That's why I prefer pairing my OCs with characters that have no canon love interest at all, because you can make improvement in their relationship that way.

I'm with you in the FMA fandom, poor Ed... Always bring paired with random Mary-sue OCs. Can't the fangirls just stick to canon pairings anymore? Or just pair them with a character that's a minor and not too overrated as the main characters?


I only like certain oc x canon pairings.... But if it's by a random fangirl that has no purpose to the pair... Then I will not support her.

Have you seen Akai Dalia, Tamber, Kentami, and Susan Gai in the Sonic fandom?! Cause I swear they're the uber Mary-sues!

I actually have some oc x oc pairings too, bit honestly man.... Canon x canon, oc x canon, oc x oc, or even crossover pairings... I like to keep them all realistic and in character for better development. It's more fun for me that way!;p

Lol I don't blame you.... I'm so tired of the sonic fandom due to horrible OCs, fanbrats, and shipping wars. That's why I pretty much moved on to the TMNT 2012 and other fandoms since they're a bit more stabled than sonic.:XD:

There are people who can really do OCXCanon justice, and I applaud them for that. If I were to say, pair an OC with Sasuke (which I'd never to as I don't even like Naruto), Sasuke would't even love said character back, and he'd prolly kill the OC in the end.

However, I have far more fun making my FCs evil, so if anything, they would endanger the canon character and give them a challenge.
