Not What it Seems - TotA OCs

Alex by IHaveNoIdea8

Alexandra Garcia (Alex).

She's the mainest of my two main OCs, and the one I write for the most. To people she doesn't know, she tends to act a little shy, and polite, while on the inside her opinions tend to be different. With people she does know, she's usually sarcastic and blunt, and first to say what everyone else is thinking.
A child of war, she's only recently been reunited with the older sister she forgot she had. She was raised in the home of the person responsible for the war that killed her parents, and hates herself for ever forgetting about her real family.

Isabell Garcia by IHaveNoIdea8

Isabell Garcia.

Alex's older sister. I love Isabell to pieces, but I'm so damn cruel to her, seriously. xD
She has a backstory much more depressing than Alex's. While Alex was taken by the Duke of Kimlasca to live in his home as his daughter, Isabell and another from Hod made their way to Chesedonia. The young boy who accompanied her died, and left her alone to live on the streets of the desert town. Eventually, Van, who she knew well on Hod, found her, and brought her to live in Daath. There, she trained vigorously and eventually rose up the ranks to become a God-General.

1. What does your Deviantart name mean and why?

It means that I had absolutely no idea what to use as a name, and it just kinda stuck and now I use it for pretty much everything.

2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?
Tales of Symphonia and Harry Potter, and a few others, now it's expanded to more Tales games, and other assorted animes and books.

3. How many watchers do you have now?

4. Name 3 of your favorite artists on DA.

5. Or lack thereof, move along…

6. Do you participate in clubs' contests here on dA?

No, not really xD

7. What is your most popular submission?

The deviation with the most comments is Not What it Seems with 58 comments, while the most favourited one is Hungarian Horntail, with 38 favourites. The most viewed deviation is Lucky Sevens - Dreaming of Sunshine with 1,923 views.

8. What are your favorite non-anime TV shows?
The Big Bang Theory, Whose Line is it Anyway, Criminal Minds, and I've been following Stalker (that sounds funny xD).

9. What are the things you wish you could draw better?
Animals in general, backgrounds.

10. Summer or winter?
I don't like either. Summer's too hot and winter's too winter. I like the inbetween seasons, but we don't see a lot of either where I live.

11. Rain or Sun?

12. What's your favourite type of music?
Alternative, but I listen to basically everything but rap.

13. PC or Mac

14. Anime or Manga?
It depends on the genre. I find action mangas like Naruto hard to follow with fight scenes, but with the animes they're epic. Whereas with Ouran and other stories like that, I like the manga better.

15. Coke or Pepsi?
Been trying to stay away from pop lately, but I prefer coke if I had to choose.

16. Read or TV?
TV, I guess. I've been trying to catch up on anime.

If I added up the times I'm on throughout the day, it'll probably still be less than an hour a day.

18. Name a talent.

19. Flash or traditional cartoons?

20. What is your favorite fast food restaurant?
Wendy's I suppose. But I try to stay away from fast food, it's gross, and too expensive for the quality of food you're getting most of the time.

21. What are your top 3 favorite books? (not mangas)
Harry Potter
Hunger Games
The Lovely Bones

22. Wii or PlayStation?

23. Name 3 of your favorite bands/singers.
Linkin Park, Bowling For Soup, and I can't think of a third. xD I don't listen to particular bands really, I just find songs I like.

24. Are you a fast, slow, or medium typer?
Medium I guess. I don't type like you're technically supposed to, but I'm not quite a chicken pecker either. xD

25. Do you like Denny's?
I had to go there all the time as a kid since my Mom's a manager so I really don't like it now. xD

xD or :P

27. What is your favorite type of pie?
Lemon meringue, or anything citrus-y.

28. Have you ever stayed up for 24 hours?

I log on everyday, but mostly just to check my messages.

30. Are you a member on any other sites besides DA?, and I have an account on Tumblr that I never use.

34. Have you skipped school?
:shifty: Maybe >.>

35. Have you been on a plane?

36. Have you swam in an ocean?

Not for the past few years. I used to all the time when I was a kid though, but then I had a coach who was terrible and I kinda lost interest after that. I wasn't the only one, either. >.>

38. Favorite vacation spot?
I don't really go to the same vacation spot twice, so I don't really have one.

Natalia from Tales of the Abyss. Especially if it were earlier on in the game. Oh, or Zelos because it would just be irritating with all his advances and stuff. xD

  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Playing: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles


I draw for fun, and I think I've improved a lot since I first started on this site.

I prefer writing over drawing, and most of my drawings have something to do with stories I'm writing in some way, whether it be character designs or story scenes, but I rarely upload my writing on dA. I have a fanfiction account by the same name where all of my writing can be found.

I would love to improve even more with my drawing, and personally I would like to try my hand at drawing in different styles,
so I might be uploading some different stuff in the near future.

I've also been making plushies a lot lately! At the moment, I mostly have
pictures of just the old, cruddy first attempts at plushies, but I've actually
gotten a lot better since then. I plan on getting pictures up of my new projects as soon as I can!

At the moment, myself and a close friend on here by the username of RubyMoonz are working on a completely original story, and we are very excited about it! We have a joint account ( WorldOfSoles ) where we have been uploading character designs and quick explanations of who they are, and other things like that. We're currently still in the process of planning the story and the world out, but we hope to get the first chapter out as soon as we can.

I am also IHaveNoIdea8 on
