I wasn’t sure if I selected the right tag, but I’m only here for this one question. As I don’t play the Game myself I’ll probably delete this account afterwards (or just leave it on the side depending on how much attention this recieves).
I was first thinking about asking this on reddit but I feel like I wouldn’t get an answer over there so I hope it’s fine to ask this here instead.
To cut right to it: I’ve had a discussion with some friends about OC’s and we ended up on OC’s in Fate/Grand Order because both of them play it. One of them has an OC - they’re not there to replace the MC but rather as someone who plays a role below them (I didn’t ask about the specifics but that’s unimportant for this).
We searched on the internet for a bit but couldn’t find many people who used OC’s and the few who actually posted about them were from 2016/17 so I’ve been wondering if this is because the main character is already written to be a self-insert or for another reason. I have read about some fandoms being cricital towards peoples OC’s - mind you I don’t mean to offend anyone here if it sounds like it - so I’ve been thinking that maybe people just don’t want to be too open about their OC’s.
I feel like people normally jump straight towards making an OC - especially when the story is allowing it (even if it’s only barely plausible) and from what I’ve seen there are enough possibilities and ways to integrate an OC into the story, yet there is almost nothing.
I’m not too sure about my grammar so I might have misspelled some words and used them repeatedly (my explanation is probably somewhat confusing), but I hope it’s understandable.
