Shamelessly liberated from tocourtdisaster:

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas/concepts/other I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting them accurately.

Five Things About Bones

Five Things About Mal Reynolds

Five Things About Richard Castle
(Yes, I KNOW I've never written Castle fic, but when has that stopped me from anything, ever?)

Five Things About Willow
(Holy fuck, it's been ten years since I've written fannishly about Buffy. I...don't even know how I feel about that.)

Five Things About Simon Tam

Five Things About Richard Castle
1) He always wanted to be a Space Cowboy when he grew up. This is a true story. It has to do with being five years old, Halloween, a cowboy hat and a homemade laser gun. Eventually he was old enough (twenty-three) to discover that by writing he could be a Space Cowboy, or a superhero, or a detective, or (and best of all) the guy who gets the girl in the end.

2) Alexis actually reminds him a lot of himself at her age. This actually doesn't give him near as many nightmares as he wants others to think it does.

3) He thinks Beckett is the perfect woman. He's not sure which idea terrifies him more: her finding out or her never finding out. He works equally hard at both, because one day Something will happen and things will have to be Real one way or the other, and that terrifies him most of all.

4) He used to secretly be afraid that the only things he was good at were making things up and taking care of his daughter. Though fully aware that the latter is the most important thing he could ever or would ever want to do, he's likewise thrilled every damn day that he and Beckett close a case.

5) He really wants to write a science fiction novel. It's about an intrepid space cowboy and his crew as they fly around an almost-dystopian galaxy, and their adventures as they get in and out of trouble with the law. His love interest is a woman who keeps telling him how much she can't stand him, when she really means she loves him.
