When I first got into My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I went in with a skepticism towards the series but emerged with a love of the show that I finally understood. It took the end of the second season for me to create my first OC, a “secret alicorn princess” named Stellamara.
It’s really hard to look at her first form, now that made a complete rehaul to her character.
She was supposed to be the “SOOPER SEKRET DAUGHTER” of Princess Luna and a dark Mage I named Tenebris (he no longer exists.) Supposedly, her birth was covered up by the Equestirian Monarchy because Celestia found out about Luna’s affair with a dangerous criminal. And it also turns out that Stellamara also suffered from the Splash Effect (turning into a hippocampus/merpony after being exposed to water and gaining limbs back when dry.) Supposedly AGAIN, she would secretly help her “mother” raise the stars at night. Inquisitive and curious, she would often roam the castle libraries looking for everything/ANYTHING to read. Her biggest problem was her nosiness, stubbornness, and her inability to realize why she HAD to be kept a secret. Her magic prowess was strongest in Water, Ice, Illusions, and Dark (not deep deep DEEEEEEP dark like her father… like Pokemon dark type.)
I never rped with her or showed her off to anyone because everyone I knew actually had NORMAL interests; not ponies, anime, creepypasta or criminal psychology. Besides all of these secret interests, I was an instant bully-magnet just for living.
Anyway, after a few years of hiding Stellamara away, I found out about how taboo Alicorn OCs were/are. And how much of a monster I created. Surprisingly though, I wanted to keep her name. But I knew that her entire history/personality/design/etc. had to die.
So, here she is now!
I haven’t found a good cutie mark for her yet (personally, I want it to be a little more complex than average…) but she is skilled in water and ice magic, but mostly water. Though she was in Twilight’s year at Princess Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns, Stellamara has never met any of the main characters. While her grades were rather high, they weren’t the highest in the school (more like above-average.)She lusts for knowledge and sometimes lets her ambitions get to her head. She turns into a Velma when she loses her glasses but is too squeamish to put in contacts. I’m currently thinking of Stellamara having recurring nightmares of her past life as a Sue and trying to receive help for said nightmares.
If you ever get constructive criticism on your character, don’t act huffy and try to aggress that your character is “”KAWAII DESU AND OH SO PERFECT IN EVERY WAY AND U R JUST JELLY OF HER SUGOINESS.”
Just remember what Jimmy Neutron once said, “People are supposed to be flawed! Their flaws are what makes them perfect.”
