Original Worlds Stamp by Serynzia Original Worlds Stamp by Serynzia
I am often frustrated by how all OCs (Original Characters) get grouped together regardless of their world of origin. I think an original character who exists in an original world with an original storyline is a LOT different from an OC created for a pre-existing universe, like Naruto or Bleach.

I don't have OCs. I have characters in original WORLDS.

Hence the stamp.

I have created an universe which my characters from my original fiction live in, and it's not just populated by people. But the universe I created is set in the near future, and is also an unnamed county. But as it is sandwiched between two real-life counties it is quite small. So that is the setting.

If I may? This is how I usually say it.

An OC is an original character for an original story based in an original world.
A FC in a fan character made for a semi-original story based on and in a cannon world (like Naruto).

I agree with you so much on this though. I have FCs, and I have OCs, and they do not belong together at all!

FINALLY SOMEONE WHO ALSO DOES THIS! My OCs actually started out as imaginary friends when I was a little kid. They're from my own world and are irrelevant to any pre-existing storylines. I don't make fan characters, though, because I'd feel big-headed because I'm pretty sure that if the writer wanted more characters, they'd just add them.
So, I'm going to write my own story instead! :)

Well there is a word for characters in pre-existing worlds - fan character (FC).

I have three worlds right now that I'm working on, with several characters running around in each XD

I also have two from when I was in elementary school, but I've kind of abandoned them. I'll probably rescue them later; I had several alien species and a language in one of them. =)
