So just for fun, I decided to make a fun little tag journal. This is a fun exercise that I think can be challenging fro writers and their original characters.
Here's the idea. As a huge fan of Total Drama, I often think about what it would be like to have my original characters on the show, just for fun. The idea for this is to revamp your to fit into another universe. It similar to questions like, "If Superman were in the world of Harry Potter, what Hogwartz House would he belong to?" or "If Yu-Gi-Oh was in Pokemon, what would be the starting monster?" I think this could be a fun exercise in develop your character's personality and traits. Just take a look at my examples and give it a try.
1. Choose at least 1 original Character from your Gallery
2. State the character's full name, give them a stereotype, and create a cool team for them to be on.
3. Give a backstory to your character, telling us about themselves in ways of personality and traits, and reason for being on Total Drama.
4. Tag at least 5 people and have them post this in their journal.
TOTAL DRAMA-VERSE OC(s):
Team: The Silver Owls
AXEL TAROT, "The Psychic"

He has even had dreams where he sees the future and experiences extreme dejavu the next day. Axel spends all of his time trying to learn and control his powers, which has alienated him from the rest of the world. Most people, of course, don't believe him and just write off what he does as a coincidence. But that didn't stop Chris from choosing him for Total Drama. In his audition tape, he tried to move a rock and the result seemed to be the camera floating away from the shot. Axel comes from a big family, and hopes to win the million to support them and his psychic training.

"Did you hear the one about Bowser losing to Mario? It left him Shell Shocked! HA! I'll be here all week folks, don't forget to tip your waitresses. Seriously, tip'em over."
