Ask Game: Top 3 Stubborn Characters Who Just Won’t Cooperate
Since I’ve spent more time writing recently, I’ve been noticing how some characters just come easily to me, while other characters are just. So hard? To write? And then I started wondering if other creators have this problem too, and which characters they have trouble with.
So I wanted to make one of those tag games, where you answer the question and tag some of your favourite creators to answer too! Whether you’re an artist or a writer, what are your top 3 characters that you want to draw/write about, but sometimes they just don’t wanna work with you? Is there a particular reason why?
I’ll tag @hoofae @needcake @peonycats and @shachaai for this because I’m super curious about their answers, but anyone can respond for any fandom! Please indulge my curiosity m(_ _)m
My answer under the cut:
ah ty for tagging me!! hmmmm if i were to choose three….
Don’t get me wrong, I loveeee this mans, but his unique blend of passion, wisdom, pride, cynicism, pettiness, and immortality weirdness is super hard to nail down. To an extent, that’s the case for most of the ancients, but for some reason, it can be hard for me to get in his head. Maybe it’s because compared to Iran and China, he’s less resigned/accepting to certain elements of nationhood (particularly how their inherent nature means things like family or love are just impossible to maintain sometimes) WHO KNOWS MAYBE HE STILL BELIEVES……. UNDERNEATH ALL THAT CYNICISM SOMEWHERE
Man thailand is such an interesting guy, like on one hand, i think him being a sunshiney smiling guy who could and would whoop your ass if pissed off is pretty fucking hilarious, but on the other hand, it’s definitely more complicated than that! He’s someone who’s very proud, very calculating, and at times downright overcontrolling and manipulative, yet he’s also cheerful, polite, modest, and easy going!! he’s got a lot of layers everytime i try to peel it back there’s more and more to discover smh!!
I find myself referencing @bubbleteahime‘s post on him a lot and i gain extra appreciation for him everytime 👍
definitely need more research, but I remain super fascinated by Cuba, from his early childhood being neglected by Spain to suddenly being elevated to the favorite
when everybody else left to his long history of struggling to become his own person, not defined by others. I really like him as someone who is fundamentally very down to earth and pretty chill (though he will push back when pushed, that’s for sure), but he’s so chill sometimes that it’s kinda hard to figure out his thought processes because unlike Cuba, i am not chill and am very hotheaded irl JDSKFJSJKKS- it’s also quite interesting to figure out how his chill personality balance with politics and his…. less than amicable relationships with other nations all factor into each other 🤔
I’ll tag @mysticalmusicwhispers, @friendly-neighbourhood-desi, @hammyletto, and @luyous off the top of my head but anyone can do it!!
