When depressed, Q.P. encases himself in an invisible force field.
In anime terminology, Q.P. would be considered a trap (a convincingly feminine male character) and most characters like these are often perceived and/or portrayed as jokes (something I personally despise, regardless of intention). The reasons why he doesn't like flattery and sympathy is because he doesn't want to be perceived as a victim or someone desperately seeking for attention; plus, the morals and laws of his own universe forbid him from seeking help because doing so is considered a sign of weakness and he is naturally deemed an atrocity due to the fact that he doesn't fit his character type's ideal mold. Does that make any sense? Forgive me if it sounds confusing. If you're not sure what I mean, that's what The One and Only Flower in the World, a story that serves as Q.P.'s backstory, is for.
And yes, most of his traits he has are from my own personality while others came naturally as I was developing him. One thing's for sure, we're nothing alike in terms of physical appearance (e.g. he's a boy with pink hair and I'm a girl who doesn't).
He might get confused on what you mean by "I love you", since in his story's universe, the word "love" is mainly used for romantic reasons and he's not romantically interested (asexual, if you prefer). Q.P., however, does have a mantra that he follows: "Love yourself for who you are, not what others want out of you"; of course, the word "love" in this case is used in a platonic sense.
The mantra also reflects my personal bond with Q.P. He originally started out as a typical shy and sweet character who's determined to get rid of the stigma surrounding the word "shota" (yes, he was that kind of generic character), but when I first introduced to other people, he got so much hate either (because he was a shota, trap, or simply because he was a young boy and not a teenager or adult or a girl) and I started doubting whether I should change Q.P. to make him more "likeable" or just scrap him completely. Those experiences had an impact on Q.P. as well, reducing him to a cheery compassionate boy to a childlike cynic. This mindset became his personality for about a year or so, until some people started asking me more genuine questions about Q.P., in which I was more than happy to answer. I eventually began opening up more and more about my troubles surrounding the character, but instead of putting me down and bashing Q.P., those people were very understanding and even gave me some supporting feedback on him as well as myself. This newfound realization later helped me develop Q.P. into the character he is today, still cynical but with a more believable personality and goals that others and I can personally relate to. Simply put, even if the majority of people find Q.P. unappealing, it doesn't mean I should change him to suit their personal tastes. I'm Q.P.'s creator and therefore I know what's best for him. And personally, I love him just the way he is and wouldn't change him in any way (design, personality, etc.).
Sorry if I'm starting to sound too egocentric. I don't usually talk about Q.P. this much, since most people don't really ask.
That is the most depressing story I've ever read. And not being allowed to seek out help is just cruel! And what do you mean "his own universe"? Also I'd be aggressively trying to make him feel good, whether he wants it or not. Basically I'd be like "LET ME LOVE YOU!" Almost like yandere, but without the shrines and stuff.
I meant the universe of The One and Only Flower in the World, which is the universe he resides in. There should be a link to the story in the description; its formatting is a bit funny, since it's originally a visual novel that I'm currently working on. If interested, you can check it out.
Okay, did you see the "LET ME LOVE YOU" comment? I kind of have a complex where I break down when I'm unable to help somebody else feel good. I think it stems from my persecution complex.
