Aine O’ Connor
The name is Irish which is really great, although there are two small flaws. Firstly the name is Áine. Secondly the surname would be more correct if it was “Ní” instead of “Ó” but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the native version of the surname “O’Connor” still in use today? The native version would be “Ó Conchobhair” so it would be “Ní Conchobhair” for her but I have no idea if that surname exists in its native form today.
20 in human years.
Too young. She would be older in age appearance than England, that’s definite.
Britain’s little sister,
Firstly, it’s England. Not Britain. Secondly… there is absolutely no justification for Ireland to be England’s younger sister.
she doesn’t get along with him too well after the Irish famine, when he decided to INCREASE her export rate.
Oh that is an absolute lie and I really don’t know where you’ve gotten that piece of information from. A huge criticism thrown against England is that the export rate from Ireland was not stopped when the famine started. Yes, the government could have done that and they didn’t. But they in no way increased the export rate when famine was rampant in Ireland. This is deliberately making England out to be a bigger jerk than he actually was. It was a huge flaw on his government’s part to not stop the export rate but you must be joking if you think he purposefully increased it when Ireland was suffering from the famine. (also I feel that I need to say this: stop making England and England’s government synonymous to each other. A nation and their government are not exactly the same thing and while I see people understand that with nations like America, too often I see people read what England’s government did and immediately assume that those were England’s actions. England also represents his people, not just his government.)
She misses her younger brother Northern Ireland but doesn’t like to show it; she wants to be seen as a strong country that can hold her own, despite some financial issues.
She admires Russia for being the first to acknowledge her as a country, but still fears him, but slightly less than the others.
It is correct that Russia was the first to recognize Ireland’s independence however I feel that people don’t look beyond that? No one ever came across the fact that Russia (at that time the Soviet Union) stopped Ireland from joining the UN for 10 years and Ireland only managed to join in 1955? I don’t think that would be a reason for Ireland to admire Russia. She might appreciate that Russia acknowledged her independence but I don’t see them having closer ties. I think they would be rather neutral to each other. (honestly I don’t see why Ireland needs to be afraid of Russia)
She loves potatoes and enjoys eating at France’s place because she loves his food.
She gets along moderately well with America, but she considers him more of an acquaintance.
Alright I think it is nice to see an Ireland that doesn’t worship America and their relationship isn’t exaggerated as I’ve seen with other Ireland OCs. It is quite refreshing to see this. Perhaps though it woud be good to keep in mind that America has a significant Irish diaspora so their relationship wouldn’t be too distant.
Yeah, the basic synopsis of my character, I might put up more of her relationships with other countries, but i need to do more research. The original base was made by user removed. I am sincerely sorry for not putting this on when I first uploaded it. I gotta find her reference sheet, i forgot what her curl was for. :sigh:
Overall this Ireland was alright, a few minor issues here and there but in terms of research she’s not bad. I would say even in some places good since I have seen Ireland OCs a lot worse off in terms of research.
How I feel about religion. God should be presented as what he is, love and kindness. Stop using his name to justify your racism, homo phobia and sexesim
Not gonna lie, this is pretty cute.
I have a test tomorrow morning and I swear, I studied 0% for it. I’m not joking, I virtually couldn’t give a damn at the start of the module and I still don’t give a damn now. Well it is a mix of feelings… anyone who has known me for a while would know that a year ago, in this situation I’d be freaking the hell out and crying my eyes out because tests mattered to me and I had to get good grades.
But right now a dominant part of me has reached the state of:
…You know what? F*ck you. F*ck statistics, f*ck the test, f*ck the people who thought this is relevant to zoology, f*ck everything, I am going to fail this test and I WILL NOT CARE. THIS TEST WILL ONLY COUNT 3% TO THE WHOLE TERM WHY SHOULD I EVEN BOTHER I WILL JUST WATCH MYSELF CRASH AND BURN AND IT WILL BE GLORIOUS
(and a tiny part of me that represents how I would have been a year ago is curled up in a corner and bawling her eyes out and and distressed that she can’t get the rest of me to become motivated about the test and cram… honestly at this stage I don’t even want to care anymore)
Some 4,000 years ago a young woman’s cremated bones – charred scraps of her shroud and the wood from her funeral pyre still clinging to them – was carefully wrapped in a fur along with her most valuable possessions, packed into a basket, and carried up to one of the…
oh oh oh let me join in with anon here cos its true
Och no Kath! *blushes and grumbles* I’m mostly average, now and again I have “good” days.
you may be thinking, what is so ridiculous about todays challenge? And that would be James’s reaction to spiders. That’s what.
I head canon that Australia has arachnophobia. I know it’s a head canon next to no one agrees with but thats okay uwu
I admit to having done this to an ex, but admittedly this was after finding out he’d cheated on me. Please do not throw spiders at your partners if they are scared of them. thank you.
