This is a pretty interesting tag she made so I'll give it a shot.
Okay so most of you know my FC; Sonar Breezy The Long-Eared Hedgehog, but not sure if you guys know why she means so much to me. So in this journal I will tell you how she came to be an important part of my life.
Before Sonar came to be my FC, my best friend
introduced me into the Sonic fandom. I was in the fandom for about a year and it's been great. Sonic had thought me a lot about never giving up, always stand for what you believe in, never stop running, and always keep your head up. Bullies were not an issue anymore once Sonic came into my life. And so the birth of my FC came to life.
Yep, take a good long look at my first attempt at a Sonic Fan Character. XD Sonar came to me in a dream(that picture above is what she looked like in my dream by the way) after a hurricane hit my home here in Texas...Hurricane Ike. Sonic was in the dream too where he rescued (my fc in that pic there) from drowning in the water while he was safe on a platform. So it all started when Sonic "saved me". Not only in my dream but in reality too. I became more like him and so that explained why my FC was blue and looked like Sonic for a good part of several years even just being a copy of him(recolor) and being a "mary-sue".
As time went by and getting critiques from you my fellow watchers and friends, she's become so much more. She grew up with me in a way that I never thought she would be so important to me. She represents all of my hard work that I put into her to make her who she is today. She's not just my idea, she came from every little bit of you guys as well in helping me create her. Sonar represents my freedom, she represents what I want to let out, her struggles in my stories she is in(The Dark Side Of Me) are from real life situations in my life. Just a little exaggerated...
When she was bullied by her big ears; people bullied me for my looks and my glasses, When Sonic stood up to the bullies; I wished someone stood up for me during my hard times, when Sonar was kidnapped and trapped in a castle with Henry; a horrible thing happed to me in 1st grade that held me trapped in a deep cocoon where I would not speak, play or trust ANYONE anymore, Henry represented all of my horrible life experiences that keep haunting me to this vary day, "Henry" the one that beat me up trapped me in a room where I would be solitary and afraid...when Sonar got free and returned back to Sonic to only be afraid and learning to trust again; that's me when I was barely learning to come out of my shell again and trusting people around me, Sonic was there to retrain her what was right and what was wrong; Sonic in real life for me was the same...he thought me how to fight back, how to stand up for my self against bullies, how to make friends again, and most of all...how to love life again.
So you see, Sonar is ME.....She is my strength every single day of my life. I would never give her up for anything. And why she means so much to me, plus why I get upset when people take her away from me and claim she is "their's"...>_>"
As for Henry, he just represents all of the things that hold me back and haunt my mind. His darkness represents my past life for those brief years I lost my self...until I was found by my true friend
which leads to the beginning again in how all this started. Everything can come full circle. I worked hard to get to where I am today. Drawing Sonar kept me sane in this world a forget about my past. All and all, Sonar has come a LOOONG way from that picture you see there, and if I can do it, I KNOW you can DO IT TOO. You don't have to have a story like mine to make your FC great, cus your story is good enough to tell all on its own. Practice is a great way to get better and I can't stress that enough...I don't know what else to say other than this has been my story of what my OC's Mean to me. I hope you enjoyed.
Main ones I tag as my victims(lol you don't have to do it if you don't want to guys, I just want to see what your OCs mean to you is all so you can just comment in this journal):
AND ANYONE ELSE THAT FEELS LIKE DOING THIS FUN TAG YOUR WELCOME TO DO SO!
