Research or GTFO by cat-tom-boy Research or GTFO by cat-tom-boy
Because stuff like this makes me want to hurt people. Form the self inserts and relationship sues to the people who think they don't have to do research to the Ocs that offend and think they can get away with it. Ocs like Alley, the tracing Alaska((proof for any fan who thinks I'm lying [link])), the whitewashers, the people who think they can create a design then just add a nation too it, the hurricane oc, the Nazi!Anyplaces.

I WANT YOU ALL OUT OF MY FUCKING FANDOM NOW

I have Hetalia Ocs, you know what the difference between me and them are? I do research, draw my own stuff, I don't whitewash, I always try to improve my designs, I do actual research, I take advice on how to make them better, I do research before starting on the designs, I don't chose a place just cause its close to a canon country, and I take the time to make sure my Ocs aren't offensive.

The only enjoyment I get out of them is when blogs like these: [link] [link] [link]
[link] among others who show how these ocs are wrong and prove that there are Hetalia fans who are sane and respect history.

I should know I'm one of them. :heart:

Ugh, sing it sister. You can honestly tell who put love and care into their OCs, and who doesn't. I even site my sources with my OC: [link] And I've talked to people who actually live there.
And their designs are supposed to be based on their country! Hell, I looked up common genetics for mine's people. Like you said, whitewashing is just freakin' annoying.
And is it so wrong to have an OC that isn't in a relationship? :frustrated:

Wow! I didn't even know people could make such characters like that and pass them off as it being for fun. Research is important to making a Hetalia OC repectfully. That's why I take the time to research about my own OC, Peru :) I'm still in the developing process of her through. I really like your post and the links you gave on blogs to help with OCs, I will be sure to use them :) They are very helpful

Not only is it historically inaccurate, Its also highly offensive -Not trying to be racist, I have nothing against white people- But I mean, c'mon people! Less than one percent of our population is white!

Oh God.I hate when this happens.I happen to know someone on G+ who RPs Indonesia,and to be honest,I was kinda offended by the fact that her character was whitewashed (blonde hair and blue eyes?For a South east Asian?What???),an incorrect birthday (I don't remember what it was,but it wasn't Aug 17th),and a non-Indonesian name.I asked her _politely_ why her OC is incorrect,and she said "I was bored so i created a roleplay account and I just chose Indonesia.WHAT.I am an Indonesian (born in Jawa to mostly Indonesian parents,stayed there for around 7 mo),and I hate to see my own country being an OC whom is probably a self-insert.And I'm pretty sure that the admin just created her so that she could date America.

Yea I have my share of OC's or as what they really are, fan characters (This is my opinion, but if you think differently, I respect that.) I made a Tennessee OC (mostly because I have a feeling that I know the state well.) and I don't consider her or any of my other Hetalia fan characters finished. (By the time I'm done making them, I will have probably done a crap load of research.) I don't want my fan characters to be seen as a Mary Sue/Gary Stu, so I'm going to do what I can to make them a well-researched character. (Sorry about my long comment ;-;)

I did i freaking three hours worth of research on my OC Slovakia. and that was just the basics. I still have to go in a tweak a bunch of things on her, good OC's take a lot of work and i hate it when people are lazy and just make them look like whatever the heck they want them to. Seriously i still don't even consider mine done. at all.

At the moment, I am doing a fuck truck load of research on Israel. Cultural clothing, food, art, architecture, history, everything. I want my OC to be successful, and not just another Mary-Sue. Therefore; Me = busting my butt on Google and Wikipedia. Because if people want their OCs to be good, they have to do that kind of research.

Dear god. And there is a Saudi Arabia ask account on that page that Glomps her too.
I'm sorry to say I've seen your nation abused many times by ignorant Hetalia Oc creators. Also I understand seeing where you live abused and whitewashed too, it happened to my city and I'm pretty sure their is a horrible Oc of the mississippi river too. If you want you can submit that red sea ask to one of the blogs or I could do it for you.

I ask her "are you from saudi arabia" and she said "i'm from america but i moved to italy".
they need to learn history before they do an ask account.
No thanks i don't want to do an ask account,i'm not that good in history,dear. ^^

The back story's kind of interesting. I know it doesn't have anything to do with the country, but Hetalia is an ANIME, and the Japanese don't really like having dark skinned people in their animes. :shrug:

I'm currently doing a shitload of reasearch for my Peru OC.
My god, i'm sick and tired of seing moe-ass Mongolias(Ever heard of the fucking Mongolian Empire? They ruled a shitload of Asia, and I don't see how they should be all moe and shit.), whitewashed-as-fuck African countries, yadda yadda yadda.

I know the feeling. Whenever I'm reading a fanfic with a Hetalia OC, I feel like banging my head on the desk when they get anything historically inaccurate. Especially when it comes to Chicago.
They make me wanna face palm because I usually research months in advance.
