I really need help for a mane for my OC.
Name: Princess Double, the Changeling Princess
Abilities: Effortless Cloning, each clone is just as powerful as the original, immortality (she makes a new clone upon death)
Personality: Incredibly cheerful, overly eager to please and be accepted, insecure, neurotic, paranoid, easily terrified into an AAAAAH! reaction face
Known for: Her ability to be anypony but herself
Bio: Born from a botched attempt by Queen Chrysalis to produce a succesor using the power of the Elements of Harmony. She's just as powerful as the Elements, alright, but it is almost impossible for her to actually be EVIL. Though mother and daughter love each other, their different personalities cause a lot of conflict.
I was thinking something spiky and upbeat, something insanely poofy and outrageous to offset Chrysalis. Think Pinkie Pie vs Pinakmena.
They (Chrysalis and Double) are going to star in a comic series/Tumblr called Double Standard, focusing on Double and Chrysalis' undying love, murderous rage, and complete exasperation with one another.
Essentially, a Mother/Daughter dramedy with Changelings.
*at one another.
I'll give you an honest opinion. It's a terrible idea. Calling it a Mary Sue would be an understatement.
Logistically, how would the Changelings even get a hold of the Elements in order to make the cloning attempt in the first place?
Thanks for the honesty.
They have some help from my other OCs and the Harmonizer cannon. It does exactly what you'd expect a massive, several hundred pound cannon that needs to drill itself into the ground for recoil control to do.
pretty derp if you ask me
i trully love this idea
i respecthis opinion, but
1121 can shudup
If you respected his opinion you wouldn't be telling him to shut up. That's kind of implicit in the word "respect."
For manes I think you're on the right track--a sloppier version of Pinkie's would work.
However, this character will likely be poorly recieved because she is a Mary Sue. You can drastically lower the Sue-levels with two changes:
1) Drop the immortality-via-clone-respawns.
2) Drop the "as strong as the Elements." The EoH are the most powerful things known in canon: stronger than a raging moon princess, stronger than a Chaos God. Putting your OC's power level anywhere near that of the Elements is going to tick folks off.
Aside from the Sue-ness, though, she sounds promising.
