i truly find that my favorite characters to write for are the ones who have zero idea who they are, what they're doing, or why they exist BUT try. they try to as much as they can, for however long it's a possibility for them. i usually reserve that for my male characters, since it's so much easier for me to write them. i also love super caring, loving personalities who spend hours in the gardens or cook fabulously for their friends and family bc it's warms them up. toss some faces in that aren't Good At Everything. like to bake but can't sing worth a shit but do anyway? yes pls.
i guess i just like characters with a lot of shortcomings that can be made up by another aspect of who they are. hopelessly moody™ but with a heart of gold? yus. shy, hopeless child with a million things to say and no voice to say them? i love it.
i also really love bad boy men weekend lovers. and bad girls. both, who find that cinnamon apple love or each other and create a strangely admirable long-term relationship dealio.
i remember for years and years i would anchor myself to the sort of character that was somber. reserved. reluctant to express themselves in any real way, shape or form. characters without purpose or ambition. and i think i did that because it felt safe? i didn't need to go out on a limb or experiment and put that character at risk of being disliked. but it also made my characters impossible to plot with, and i felt almost suffocated by it, by the end. there was no growth or development. in fact, it wasn't until a good friend of mine straight up told me that my characters were inherently unlikable and impossible to interact with before i decided to branch out try the complete opposite.
since then, i've found such freedom in writing characters that are flawed. i've embraced the icc conflict that it leads to, and the character development that occurs as a result of that conflict. the types i write now are very outspoken and unapologetic about their thoughts and opinions and who they are. and that's incredibly liberating for me? i find so much more enjoyment in writing now, when i can really see these characters mature and struggle and fight. to watch them make mistakes and face the consequences of their actions, whether they like it or not.
it's just unfortunate it took me so long to overcome my fear of writing someone who evokes a real, not always positive reaction in others.
I'm pretty sure I don't have one. I mean I just made a librarian and a Faustian demon, and I write characters from Luna Lovegood to Vegeta to 14-year-old Goku to Minerva McGonagall. I just sort of write all over the board ...
All my characters tend to skew towards sarcastic, socially awkward weirdos I've noticed. That tends to be the traits I gravitate too for canon characters I decide to play and most of my OCs are also sarcastic but have absolutely zero social skills...
I also like playing unapologetic catty assholes, just absolute diva BRATS.

I usually write the 'flirt' character, or a 'evil/bully' character. Idk, for some reason, I find that people don't write these characters a lot. (Also, people who want to write "crazy" characters, there's more than one way to make someone crazy. I am kinda tired of 'crazy' characters just being random with not rhyme or reason. That doesn't really make them crazy, and personally, just makes them hard to rp with. How the hell am I supposed to flow with someone who's acting a different way every post. Since I make a lot of crazy people, I find subtle insanity is a lot more effective. I find that it's a lot more enjoyable to thread with someone when instead of them constantly doing something crazy, there's the thought in the back of your mind that they could do something crazy. It's like that horror saying, the scariest thing we could ever see is in out own imagination.)
