So Jhenne was awesome and totally held an open forum for people just to throw their original characters at her to look at and admire because she’s awesome and
I’m just getting so many feelings because
no matter if you think your original characters are just fan characters from an already existing thing, original pet projects for your own story or those embarrassing self inserts you drew in middle school
KEEP THEM CLOSE TO YOUR HEART
they are yours, they have a story and precious and love them with everything you have
and when you can
hone them to something you can be proud of so you can share them with other people!
Because every character that ever existed, all the ones you love? They used to be someone’s OC lololl
