I read an article about Flay Allster yesterday. And while she’s a very unlikeable character, I learned something else about her thanks to the writer. And that is - that while Flay is a bitch, but she’s as realistic as most teenagers, you know. How she represents teenagers her age with all the flaws. I don’t mean that most teenagers are bitches, but - if you’re teenagers or past that period, just remember your days as teenagers. Yup. Maybe you’re about as bad as Flay. Myself included.
If it’s me, now, I don’t look at characters because they’re oh-so-perfect. What is perfection anyway. I look for their personalities. I don’t seek perfect personalities at all - I seek for their complexity in the characters. I seek for their gray side. I yearn to find something which I can learn from their personalities so I can understand myself and others further. Also, what will also make me love them more is if I’m able to relate with them.
If you ask me I’d say that it’s Lacus whom I find I can’t really relate with. That makes her quite unreal to me. Maybe I’m wrong but I think it’s difficult to find people like her too, in this day and age no less. Lacus is oh-so-perfect that I find it’s impossible. I can relate with Athrun more as I find his personality more realistic.
