Tips for Roleplaying Well - Interesting CharactersSo you feel like you're a good writer. How about we work on your character now?
Many of you have heard of 'Mary Sues,' the name coming from a story by Paula Smith written for the Star Trek franchise. They are the prettiest, they are the best at everything, they are the most powerful, and for some reason, everyone loves them. Almost every writer has had a Mary Sue at one point.
One of my very first characters outside of the Lion King fandom was a Final Fantasy character named Kayna. If that name sounds somewhat familiar, it is because, yes, she was named after Kain Highwind from Final Fantasy IV. Kayna was half GF... But not just ANY GF. Griever was her baby daddy. Also, Seifer thought she was so fine and she was best friends with Rinoa and Fuujin:
I got that thing to about 60 pages before I said to myself 'What the hell am I doing?' and never drew another page. Of course, that was hours of my life I'll never get back, as well as the fact that I decided

This fic takes place immediately after the Season 15 South Park premiere.
The day arrived in a flurry of ecstasy for Eric Cartman, who'd eagerly awaited Kyle's release from the hospital for some time. Despite the fact the he was still injured from being struck by lightning, he climbed the stairs to his sort-of friend's room with renewed strength, for tucked into his coat, safe from the view of Kyle's parents, was his brand new iPad. His mother, so obviously distressed by her son's injury, bought him the thing as a get well present, and the best part about that was that said iPad was better than everyone else's.
He intended to rub it in Kyle's face, perhaps literally, and hoped that the mere sight of it would cause the other boy some great distress. He so loved seeing Kyle in distress, and the thought of it made the pains from God's thorough smiting seem not quite as bad.
He was almost giddy when he reached the bedroom, though, strangely, his euphoria faded when he saw Kyle sitting

Most of these fics are no longer than a page. They feature a number of different characters, so there's probably something here for everyone. I write these as I think of them, so you can think of them as sketches of sorts. Enjoy!
It hurt in a way Cartman couldn't comprehend. And for that moment in time; that brief, insignificant blip that wouldn't even register on the radars of the universe; he understood. He and Kyle knew each other more than they'd ever really been able to grasp, and their antagonism fueled them, brought life to them both. Even if they couldn't stand each other right now, Cartman had a brief glimpse of the future as he looked at his technically dead companion. One day, they would be friends.
His lip trembled. It went beyond that stupid contract. Oh, sure, that agreement would have to be upheld on principle, but it wasn't the only reason Cartman had to save his friend. After all, anyone could perform the unspeakable and somewhat embarrassing acts tha

This is mostly an introspective character study piece. One day, I asked myself why Craig would get involved in another one of Cartman's schemes if he hated going along with them so much. Either Crack Baby Basketball was JUST THAT COOL, or something happened to mellow Craig out a little bit.
Yes, this fic is just as full of crack as "Crack Baby Athletic Association." I almost didn't finish it after I looked at the outline and wondered what the hell I was on. Still, I love character studies, so I went ahead and finished it. It did take a lot of re-writing, but I'm pretty happy with the end result.
There are some similarities to "You're Getting Older." Oddly, I wrote those parts before the episode aired. (I SWEAR.) Anyway, happy reading.
Fate. Inevitability. Craig talked about those things a lot lately, playing with the words as if he had a deep, spiritual understanding of what they meant... But he never really said why. It all started with his impromptu vacation to the country

Carry on skirting that line because it doesn't look like shit to you so you see it.
Does it glow for you?
I didn't notice.
But there are vague outlines that look like you and I know you see me
Give me space, Kyle. I know you will.
Sometimes I wonder if I need you then THEY come. They used to be called tears but now they're just shitty
Like you and the rest of the world. Kyle.
I feel worse when I cry.
Draw that line for me. I see you smile, sometimes, through all the shit the world's become you smile and you look this way and I see it.
