Rant

An OC, short for “original character”, is often used, especially in the brony and furry fandoms, as an avatar of oneself, and in those fandoms you’re encouraged to create one for yourself.

They recently added some of them at the one in my town, pretty popular place after the summer festival taking place in Québec City each summer (we had the Red Hot Chili Peppers tonight, and tomorrow we’ll have Rammstein, so it’s pretty big).
