Mème à fanfics - jour 6

06 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

Alors. J'aime écrire les geeks et les nerds ; les tricksters, chessmasters et autres manipulateurs ; les personnages à la fois idéalistes et rationnels ; les personnages qui sont obsessionnels et déterminés ; ceux qui sont un peu déséquilibrés dans leur tête ; les personnages cérébraux qui réfléchissent ou analysent beaucoup, parfois trop ; ceux qui ont des tendances auto-destructrices ou masochistes.

Donc, étant donné l'état de mes fandoms, souvent des personnages masculins, quoique pas toujours. ^^ Il n'y a qu'à voir la liste de la question 3. Ca ne veut pas dire que je n'aime pas écrire les personnages féminins, mais j'ai constaté que les "types" de personnages que j'aime écrire étaient encore plus souvent des mecs que les types de personnages que j'aime tout court. C'est un peu dommage pour le principe, mais je fais avec.

Là, on parle en fanfic, bien sûr, où finalement, le genre du personnage n'est pas forcément très important pour moi. Je veux dire, je n'ai pas l'impression de l'écrire spécialement comme un personnage masculin ou féminin, je l'écris comme je le vois dans son canon, et puis voilà.

Quand j'écris des originales, là oui, en créant un personnage (masculin ou féminin) il faut faire attention à ne pas en faire un cliché de son genre, bien sûr, mais à en tenir compte quand même, du moins s'il a grandi dans un univers où les différences de genre avaient la moindre importance, parce qu'il s'est construit entre autres par rapport à ça.
Mais quand j'écris un personnage que j'aime pour une fanfic, voilà, tout ceci a déjà été fait pour moi par l'auteur d'origine. :-)

Aussi, si vous avez de bons personnages féminins à me recommander qui collent à quelques-uns des archétypes que j'aime bien écrire, n'hésitez pas à faire des recs.
