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.

(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 Willow
1) She truly loves Buffy. Not the way she loved Tara, or loves Kennedy, but not the way you'd love a sister either. She used to hate her a little too, though, in a way she could never even articulate to herself: How Buffy was power, even at her weakest. Even when Willow taps into the power of the Earth and can feel the Light infusing her, that kernel of darkness is inside her and the very opposite of her friend, and it scares her to death.

2) She never told Sheila about Tara. She's never told her about Kennedy either. But they talk maybe twice a year about nothing, and she knows she should feel guilty about that, too, but she doesn't.

3) She read The Mists of Avalon when she was ten. She things that explains quite a few things about her life, all of them after the fact.

4) She used to really hate being the lovable fuzzy one. It was embarrassing and lame, and makes her think of all those years of Cordy and her Cordettes laughing at her in the hallways. But now Cordy's dead, and she helped raise Dawn through the teenage years, and now being the lovable fuzzy one seems like the safest thing in the world, and very, very far away.

5) She truly believes that one day she and Oz will run into each other again, when they are both old and Bayarmaa and Kennedy and the pains of the past are safely behind them. She particularly believes this when the world is at stake, because the idea of "after" is precious and true and necessary.

In a "it's funny because it's true" kind of way. :P
