Well, a minor character is a character other than the Protagonist, or the Antagonist. That's it. They come in three basic flavours: Supporting Characters, Non-Supporting/Antagonistic Characters, and Neutral Characters, and r

-What is it?
Many assume that "antagonist" is a fancy word for "the biggest, baddest guy" but it isn't. The Antagonist is the Protagonist's worst enemy this is not the same thing! (Fun fact: "Antagonist" has its root in the word "antagonise", which means "to instigate and irritate." )Consider: A Protagonist is attempting to survive in a desert just survive, no Pokextinctionists or anything. What's their enemy? Nature, that's what. If a Protagonist is trying to avoid giving in to the robot implant in their brain from an organization, they're fighting the organization in question, aren't they?

Hi, and welcome to my unofficial guide to roleplaying. ^^ Before we begin, I'd like to point at that I am not, in any way, saying that what I write here is the only, or the best, way to roleplay: I am merely setting up a guide for those who have no idea about how to go about it, or would like some hints on how to improve their roleplaying.
Questions, and suggestions, are both appreciated and loved.

First off, I'll start with the very basics of roleplaying - the style. There are two main styles of roleplaying:

Have you ever tried to talk to an artists you admire on DA and s/he ignores you?
Well, there's a few tips on how to talk to them and get more comments back...
I don't say this will always work, because some artists are just too busy, or too shy to talk back, but it will work better than if you just bluntly ask a question.
There are nice artists who will answer your question, so make them feel a bit special for doing you a favor.

Being annoyed about all those 'neko-ear', 'top model', 'school girl' and 'lolita dress' Naruto OCs, I decided to make a guide to help people to make their Naruto OCs more believable and Naruto-like. Before I begin, I'd like to note a few things.
* First, I don't speak English as my native tongue (I'm a Finn), so there may be some grammar flaws in the tutorial. If you note a flaw, you can mention it, and I won't get angry but happy. People learn from their mistakes, and so do I! :)

Well screw that the first rule is to have inspiration, you need inspiration? Sit down at your tv watch your favourite tv show/movie or go read your favourite book, try and figure out why you like such and such genre and what parts you like about it. Yes it's copying but that's what writing is about, it's about taking things you like and putting them into your own plot. Ever heard of the book "A hero with a thousand faces?" there are only so many plots out there what's important is to mould it into your own creation. H
How to Write a Better Fanfiction 1. There is more than two emotions: happy and sad.How to Write a Better Fanfiction8 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
To your readers, the characters are real people. They have emotions, pet peeves and more than one trait that defines them. Are you just a go-happy smiley person all the time?? Are you sad all the time?? No, your emotions fluctuate depending on the circumstances; characters are very much the same way. They won't always be happy and they won't always be angry. Try to show a variety of emotions like anxious, furious, bored, listless, indifferent, etc.
