Fanfic idea

Post by Purp » Wed Jan 05, 2011 11:57 am

Last time I posted the stats for my character (on another site) I was told she was a blend of the original 5

I found this a bit offensive, as she's based on my sister, but it gave me an idea.
My character:

15
English, moved to US a year before with mum. ( makes it easier for me as i'm not American)
Shy unless knows someone well
Temper-When threatened or insecure-fizzes out
Likes graphic novels, games, films.
Polite
Intelligent
Not a tomboy, wears dark colours and rarely dresses.
Does the right thing because she "Has to" not cos she wants to.

What if she was chosen by the elimist because she's a "blend" to fit in better and perhaps because SPOILER

She can die and not one of them. For the time being

Flaws:
Temper. Lots of swearing, shouting, stammering nonsense, crying when angry.
Insecurities:Eveyone probably thinks they're better than me. Everything I do is wrong. I'm not pretty enough/strong enough
Swearing.
Assuming the worst/pesimistic

Upsets:
Crowds make her nervous
Impolite people
Injustice, bullying for example.

Hails from Essex, England. So not the Hollywood posh English accent. (Not lock, stock and two smokin ect either though)

Background: Father is an unknown, doesn't get on well with mother but home life is in no way abusive. Moved to the US as mother wished to start a new life.

Mother is christian, Church of England. Charcter has no real beliefs.


Anyone have any advice for this idea?

If she's polite, and dislikes impolite people, why would she swear so much? I mean, it's kind of like me, but I still don't swear as much as you make it sound like she does. Actually, that sounds alot like a female, English version of me. (Not the same background, but otherwise very similar). So, I like it. What are you going to do with her? A plot is a necessary first component for any story.

My best advice: Actually write something with her in it. You can make profiles like that all you want, but you won't be able to know if you want to use a character until you've actually used them. And if you insist on using profiles, make them as large and detailed as you can. Then go write something.

Another good thing to keep in mind with any Animorphs fanfic: what morphs will she use? Something slow, but huge and powerful, like Rachel's elephant. Stealthy, like Jake's tiger? Nimble, like Marco's gorilla? Tireless, like Cassie's wolf? No matter what way you choose, you need to plan it early.

*high fives character* She's almost exactly like me! Except everything past the word 'temper'..... And the England...... And the non-tomboyness....

Yes; I deleted them because they got very, very irrelevant to the topic at hand. This topic is for discussing Purp's idea. That is all.

Okay, well, could the writer give a slip of writing with her in it?
