Heh. I guess my 'sona as an artist-cum-writer was kind of bound to have a common one, because most people making ponysonas have a good chance of being one or both, I guess. :p Haven't make many straight-up Pony OCs - got an Earthpony alchemist in my head, but haven't used her often.
I have a ponysona as an artist too. Yeah I was also afraid it wasn't going to be original. Other than that I've made some decent OC's. I even done some alicorns but I don't want hate on that •///• I promise an explaination
I don't hate on Alicorn OCs. Some of 'em are cheesy, once in awhile they can be awesome - and even with the cheesy ones, everybody's got the right to make some fun cheese at least once in their life, yeah?
Even in fairly friendly fandoms, fandom culture can get ugly sometimes. >.< It's weird. I kinda get where some debates come from, but if somebody wants to make an OC they think is cool because they love the same show you love, and you disagree about what "cool" means, shouldn't that be a "just back off already and live and let live" point?
