If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

So this idea came up in chat and it seemed popular so I thought I'd make it a thread.

Basically, rank the characters you've written for SOTF/Mini in whatever way you deem fit, and if you're feeling up for it maybe even talk about why you ranked certain characters where you did (like what you liked/disliked about them when writing, or if you liked them at the time but don't anymore, or whatever).

I'd post mine right away (since I have a lot >_>) but this is being posted from a phone and I doubt I have that much time on my hands. Everyone else though, go nuts!

I'm going to massively pretty this up later, but heres my order in the meantime based on some sort of combo of how good their stories turned out and how much I enjoyed writing them:

1. Jacqueline "Cameo" Conroy (Virtua)
2. Aston Bennett (v4)
3. Ma'afu Tuigamala (v4)
4. Yoshio Akamatsu (BRAURP)
5. Holly Hadaway (TV1)
6. Jaxon Street (TV2)
7. Jacob Charles (v4)
8. Anna Kateridge (SC1)
9. Erin Underwood (P2)
10. Brendan Wallace (v4)
11. Janie Sinneave (v5)
12. Yuko Sakaki (BRAURP)
13. Ramona Shirley (Virtua)
14. Preston Grey (SC1)
15. Matthew Payne (P1)
16. Anna Hitchins (TV1)
17. Chanel Martin (P1)
18. Clio Gabriella (v4)
19. Paige Strand (v4)

ETA:


  • Cameo is probably the only character who went exactly the way I wanted her to - my first round Mini characters were all pretty exaggerated (I think that's the term Toben once used) but Cameo was a case where I felt it actually worked, if only because I had a great cast to work off.
  • Aston/Maf were v4 adoptees that really tested my writing abilities and of course there's stuff I wish I could change (probably ending Maf's story in the same place as Nick, getting rid of a bunch of formatting stuff for Aston) but I'm ultimately proud of what I was able to do and the writing opportunities it led to for them.
  • Yoshio I can look back on sort of fondly now that time has passed since his death thread was one of my favourite on-site writing experiences. Holly/Jaxon/Erin didn't last long but I felt I conveyed them pretty well (heroism/sass/menace respectively). Jacob worked out the most consistently of my original v4ers but I felt I could have done more. Same with Anna Kateridge. Brendan was my first character and my SI so he's in here just because.
  • Janie/Ramona/Preston I didn't really do anything or have any plans with so they sort of floundered. Yuko was the first death I wrote even if she didn't do much so she's here as well.
  • I did get to do things with most of my Round 1 Mini kids but looking back they were all waaaaay exaggerated and not my style anymore, Matthew in particular (but writing that scene with Luke was another fantastic site experience so I'm mixed). Anna I'm okay-er on because outfoxd managed to salvage her and bring her comparatively down to earth which kinda proves it was probably just my bad writing and not the characters fault lol. Chanel lol no.
  • I did the one thing I wanted to do with Clio and I'm good with that. The rest could have been greatly improved though.
  • Paige was fodder I have no interest in anymore. Laurels did her better in SC.

  • Jason was someone I had a blast writing. I conveyed him well and I'm super bummed I didn't get to go further.
  • Yoshio I can look back on sort of fondly now that time has passed since his death thread was one of my favourite on-site writing experiences.
  • Holly/Jaxon/Erin didn't last long but I felt I conveyed them pretty well (heroism/sass/menace respectively).

  • I forgot I actually adopted Sarah Tan in v4 for a hot minute before she went back to selphie, for some reason I thought I was only babysitting. She's alright I guess, I never really got her downpat and had to do a lot of guessing for her motivations but I loved writing in Eep.
  • I did get to do things with most of my Round 1 Mini kids but looking back they were all waaaaay exaggerated and not my style anymore, Matthew in particular (but writing that scene with Luke was another fantastic site experience so I'm mixed).
