Draw what your oc/muse's Christmas tree would look like.
What kind of tree is it? Real or fake? Big or small?
What types of ornaments are on it? Fancy baubles? Homemade ornaments?
What color of lights are on it? White? Multicolor? Something else?
Are there other kinds of decorations on it? Beads? Candy canes? Something else?
What is at the top of their tree? Something traditional, like a star? Something quirky, like a hat?

On a second viewing of She-ra and the Princesses of Power, it strikes me that it’s very easy to read the Shadow Weaver business as an explicit criticism of the whole idea of redemption arcs.
Like, you think Shadow Weaver should have had a redemption arc?
As far as she’s concerned, she did.
Basically everything she does after defecting to Brightmoon is just her methodically ticking off every box on the “redemption arc” checklist in the most awful, cynical way imaginable.
Like, she even manages to turn heroically sacrificing herself into a passive-aggressive guilt trip, in the process denying the audience the simple catharsis of seeing a bad guy go down – leaving us stuck with the knowledge that she went out smugly confident that she’d completed her redemption arc and was officially on the side of the angels, and nobody’s ever going to be able to challenge that narrative because she immediately blew herself up.
I can’t imagine it’s accidental that the show gives us a character who technically does everything the genre’s formulas demand in order to earn her redemption, and thereby makes a travesty of it.

Do you have a "favourite" physical trait to give to your OCs? If so, what is it?

Does this villain deserve a redemption arc? Is this villain capable of undergoing redemption?
That's the question we should all be asking ourselves. If a villain acknowledges the error of their ways and expresses remorse, they are therefore capable of embarking on a redemption arc.
But if they're Demona from Disney's Gargoyles - who blames humanity for all her problems/never admits to her mistakes - then you've got an irredeemable villain, regardless of her sympathetic qualities.
In the end, no one "deserves" a redemption arc. What truly matters here is the villain's capacity to change for the better. Sincere character growth.

Let's play a game! How would you describe something vs how would your character describe it?
This can be a fun way to get to know your character(s) more! Depending on their thoughts, feelings, self-esteem, etc, they may view themselves differently to how you see them. For each of the following sets of questions, answer both of them and see how they compare or differ!
How would you describe your character's physical appearance? How would your character describe their own physical appearance?
How would you describe your character's personality? How would your character describe their own personality?
How would you describe your character's fashion sense? How would your character describe their own fashion sense?
How would you describe your character's flaws? How would your character describe their own flaws?
How would you describe your character's sense of humor? How would your character describe their own sense of humor?
