Hi, I feel that I should write this journal because I'm concerned that some people would be confused with some commissions I made with others here on Deviantart. It's mostly concerns that some of my commissions features an OC of mine pairing with someone who is from another media (Guy Cecil (Tales of the Abyss), Judith (Tales of Vesperia), Talim (Soul Calibur), etc.)
. Well, I'll get the elephant out of the room. Commissions featuring my OC pairing with a character that isn't my creation is non-canon
or pure fanfiction.
While commissions featuring my OC pairing with another OC is canon.
What is canon and non-canon? Well canon is something that's approved by the creator (Myself)
while non-canon is something that isn't approved by the original creator (Judith and Guy Cecil belong to Namco, Shinji Ikari belongs to Hideaki Anno, etc.)
You see, my OCs, Darren Leong, Ricky Blade, Kasumi Kinomoto, and Alicia Ribery started out as fanfiction characters which I would put in my stories for fun on my Fanfiction account. But as time goes by, I can now create my own characters and I want to use my OCs for a universe I have since created my own. So now all the stories I written on my Fanfiction account which includes my OC pairing with someone like Judith (From Tales of Vesperia) or Masaomi Kida (From Durarara!!) are considered non-canon. And besides, I'm sure they're not approved by the creators of the original source material in the first place.
I hope everyone can agree with me on this and hope this will not create any confusion. Thanks. Canon pairings:
