OMG omg omg!!! I never knew that the word for that falling feeling existed. I so that all the time, that’s why I’m such a light sleeper. I jerk myself awake often.

What kind of females would you like to see more of in fiction?
What types of female characters would you like to see more of in fiction?
1) Clumsiness being the only flaw or a flaw that the protagonist names right away is really annoying. This “flaw” is often found in flat and static characters.
That’s pretty much it for flaws. There are other flaws that annoy me, but they’re annoying because of how they’re written, not just because they exist.
1) Female heroes and villains who are written as well as Katara and Azula from Avatar: the Last Airbender. Both characters were amazing on their own, but their confrontations and interactions with each other were brilliant and well balanced in terms of action and skill.
2) (Supernaturally) powerfully women who have limits. It’s common in fantasy for female characters who have supernatural or magical abilities to be nearly all-powerful or to outsmart everyone while they stand off to the side and smile. This is so boring. Let them lose or get worried about losing. Give them some limits and flaws in their abilities.
3) Female characters who aren’t attractive and who take up roles other than antagonist/old witch/celibate warrior/nerd if they are unattractive. I feel like there’s not enough variety in the appearance of female characters, especially when they’re teenagers or young adults.
4) Female characters who are more balanced. They’re either tough fighters who are always mopey and pissed off or they’re shy, quiet, and a little bit helpless. This is mostly for speculative fiction. Why can’t your characters have happy moments?
5) Female protagonists who come from humble beginnings with no special skills or any mysteries to them, but who end up being the hero. Male characters get to start out like that, but I rarely see female characters who are able to take the role of the hero without having some super special skill. Start from Level 1.
6) Female characters whose appearances are described, but who are never described as how attractive they are. Just describe them.
7) Female characters whose moralities do not align with the female protagonist’s moralities, but who are written as just different and not inferior. This refers to the “virgin vs whore” trope that often appears in YA.
8) Female characters who have a male friend, but who do not end up with them romantically and who do not refer to them as a brother/have a sibling-like relationship with them. There’s nothing wrong with either, but I never see them just having a platonic relationship without romantic or brotherly traits added.
doES ANYONE ELSE MAKE THE EXPRESSION OF THEIR CHARACTER WHEN THEY’RE DRAWING OR WRITING OR WHISPER THEIR DIALOGUE TO YOURSELF TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WORD TO USE TO DESCRIBE HOW THEY SAID IT BC I SURE DO
