It always irritates me a little bit how every time I check my feedback messages theres always at least one or two people who fave my Steven Universe OC's. Now dont get me wrong, I am glad that they liked them enough to fave them in the first place...but given that they were OC's that I made purely on impulse, and are oc's that I NEVER use, it gets a little irritating when I see those getting favorited while all my other OC's are pretty much getting kicked to the curb despite the fact that I use them more.
Steven Universe was a total fad for me. Its not even a fad that I was legitimately into. It was just a cute cartoon that cheered me up when I was down. Thats all it was to me then and thats all it is to me now. I'm pretty sure I only made those OC's because I watched the show, had an idea, and ran with it. But I never had any actual plans for them.
It gets irritating when someone favs OC's you have zero plans for every. Single. Day. Oc's that you never do anything with. OC's that were just random ideas that never really evolved past that.
I havent watched a new episode in a LONG time so I dont know whats been added to the Crystal gems as a...species??? So chances are none of them are even 100% accurate to what the show portrays Crystal gems as at the moment. Like just recently, I was asked whether or not my OC's have super strength by somebody (not angry about this at all btw) and I was just a deer caught in the headlights because...I didnt know that was a thing. Were they supposed to? I didnt know because I dont keep up with the show and havent for a while. So it caught me by total surprise.
Granted, I'm probably not gonna get rid of them. Because whether I made them on impulse or not, that doesnt make them bad OC's. For what its worth, they're pretty good and I did put a certain amount of work into them that I would feel incredibly guilty over if it just went to waste. But...I dont use them. My favorite one to make was Obsidian and, to be honest, I dont think I'd get rid of him anyway. I'd actually probably just end up re-purposing him if all else fails. The other two...well IDK about the girls. I think I'd end up scrapping them if worst comes to worst. But IDK. I'd feel guilty if I just ditched them like that.
IDK what to do about this. I dont wanna get rid of them but I'm tired of seeing them get so much attention when I'm not even involved in the show or fandom. Its just...frustrating that the other OC's I edit and work so hard to make are getting less attention then random OC's that I never did anything with.
If theres anyone else who knows how I feel, please let me know and tell me what I should do about this??? It would be greatly appreciated.
