The Results Are In!

Hello again everyone! I have chosen the 5 finalists for my Free OC Commission Contest! I've seen a lot of clever and adorable OC's in the comments on my contest journal. You all have wonderful OCs! Thank you all for sharing them with me, I've enjoyed getting to know them all.

Now, without further ado:

The Finalists:

1. Quantax-Dynamics's OC Meteor.
"Meteor works in a travel agency in Manehatten, advising ponies on where to go on holiday and what to take with them. The three stars are like the 'stars' that hotels or tours get, and the three of them indicate how helpful he is and the advice he gives. Occasionally though, living in Manehatten where there isn't a big open sky to fly around in, he'll participate in street races at night with other pegasi to get a speed rush."

2. Nektarios-Cat's OC Oracle.
"Oracle was extremely curious when she was a filly. Being only an earth pony, her head was always in the clouds, dreaming of the impossible. One day Oracle wondered into Everfree Forest alone, following a delicious smell. The sweet scent lead her to Zecora's hut. Not having any clue who's or what this was, Oracle steped inside when she thought no pony was there. A large caldron was there. Oracle leaned over it to taste it, without any second thoughts. It spilled all over her. Zecora came back stunned to see Oracle. The poor filly painfuly started to grow peacock feathers. Mortified and confused she ran out the cabin back to her pony family. When she arrived in Ponyville, no pony recognized her and concidered her as a dangerous creature from Everfree. Her friends and family neglected her. So after the traumatic event, Oracle shamefully went back to Zecora's hut. Oracle explained why she was so stupid and told her sorry. Zecora was sympathetic and told Oracle as long as she works for her *helping with potions and medicines, and cleaning the hut*, Zecora will try everything to reverese the curse."

3. Crystic's OC Zenith Affinity.
"Zenith's talent is the ability to easily empathize with others; as such he often feels the same feelings others have at that very moment. He can read others emotions to such a degree that he is often overwhelmed by emotion himself, and in doing so it is usually difficult for him to exhibit such emotions he feels. Even so, being able to understand each of his comrades allowed him to become a natural leader. This has also made him an excellent source of advice to ponies having trouble dealing with their own emotions. Once a soldier himself, he now serves as an Arbiter, a non-affiliated mediator between warring countries."

4. quila111's OC Dream Cloud.
"Dream Cloud is the oldest of three siblings. She's a very friendly pony, perhaps too friendly for her own good. She has a tendency to space out and literally float away while she's in her own little world. Though ditzy in appearance, she's actually rather smart and always got good grades back in school."

5. Psychedelliic's OC Galaxy Swirl.
"Her name is Galaxy Swirl. She's a pegasus who does more than the *laughable* Princess Celestia, and doesn't get noticed for it. She's practically still a filly, but she lives in space. She keeps the planets moving around the sun, and makes sure they're turning the right speed at all times. She's generally angry at the rest of the universe for not believing in her, but if you get to know her, she's nice through and through (omg this sounds sooo bad) She's not even an alicorn. She's straight pegasus. She rarely spends any time on earth, because she'd rather stay on her little meteor floating through the stars."

Congrats to the finalists!

All of them are really adorable.

Even though I didn't get in, I have one thing to say. The contest really helped me flesh out my OC and understand her personality and back story a bit more! :D

They were all very unique, interesting, and cute in their own ways. (: I loved hearing about the individual OCs and their backgrounds. They were all wonderful. Personally, it was difficult to choose!
