From taekarado

Pick a character and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them. Any and all characters welcome ( including ones I haven't written but might know about...)

1. She's a bigot. A lot of people consider her like a feminist mouthpiece for the site because she's a female comedian, looks at girly nostalgia and Lindsay kicks ass, but crowing at fat women, getting all pissy when Mulan would rather go home to her family or calling Leeloo weak for crying and of course the raping/stalking/trying-to-kill-Lupa for Todd is not exactly the feminism I want. And then there's the racism thing. (All of this I love about her by the by.)

2. Something we've been guilty of: she's not a badass taking names. She's a pathetic, lonely alcoholic who just so happens to be good at worming her way out of trouble.

3. Despite her hatred for her emotions, she has them. In spades. Why else would she be monochrome and depressed when Nella died, be holding onto Mignon like she's a security blanket, obsess over Todd or try to look after the Critic in her own fucked up way?

4. She's not as smart as she wants to think. I'd dearly like to show the people who are all like "she's analytical not funny!" the X-Men review (where normal!Chick boasts she knows everything and truth!Chick admits to the show being confusing) over and over again.

5. The only way she knows how to not get hurt again is to raise her defensive brick walls. I personally think she was so angry at Spoony not particularly because of the rape, but because he made her have a breakdown onscreen.

Michaud!
1. He's a lighter foil to Sage. Both are horrible to their subordinates and have a lot of lives in their hands, but whereas Sage plays with people and gets them in line through fear, Michaud commands respect through being a hardnose.

2. Sex to him is half powerplay, half because he knows any other relationship in his world will just crash and burn.

3. He resents everyone, even the ones he cares about. A bit of him thinks he should have left the Chick to bleed to death, it would make things less complicated.

4. He sees no point in all the whining the others do, being a firm believer in "make your bed and lie in it".

5. He thinks, no, knows that most of the things he does for his workers are for their own good.

Nella!
1. She isn't evil in the slightest. She fucked up royally, and ran away from her problems, but it was the only thing she could think of.

2. She always bottomed when she and the Chick had sex, and had no complaints when the Chick got rough. It wasn't even a case of guilt, it was just nice to lie back and let someone else take charge.

3. She genuinely thought the Chick would get her life sorted once she left, and couldn't help feeling angry when she didn't.

4. She sent Chick out on the streets because she knew the Chick would have reversed the roles if she'd figured out first that the situation was getting dire enough.

5. It wasn't that she thought all men were evil, it was just easier not to trust them.

Couple more, 'cause I'm greedy:

Ellis, Mary, Donna, and Joe.
