So, I am now starting in on the character page for the House of Night round robin, where we pretend that House of Night is a fanfic for a book much better written and that the Casts are Suethors who took the original work and butchered it for their own self fulfillment.
Zoey Redbird – The question comes, was Zoey simply an OC that the Casts stuck into their 'fanfic', or is she still going to be a 'canon character'. If she is a 'canon character', then she needs to have something that draws a reader to wish fulfill with her. The other question is, do we keep her ethnicity, since that is part of the wish full fulfillment on the Casts part, where Zoey shares the ethnicity of the daughter. How about having her simply have dark skin.
Aphrodite LaFont – She is to be the true protagonist. Should she have some mean girl spunk to her, or should she actually be like Arwen from Lord of the Rings, Ginny from Harry Potter or any of the other really nice girls who are turned into bitches simply because someone wants their way with the fanfic.
Damien Maslin – He is the gay guy in the real series. Should he actually still be gay, and pushed into gay stereotypes in the fanfic despite having a masculine personality, or should he not be gay and pushed into being labeled as gay simply because he is different.
Erik Night – He should be the class hottie. Should he be like Draco Malfoy, where the girls mistake him for being really nice, or should he be like Legolas, a nice guy simply objectified.
Stevie Rae Johnson – She is the stereotypical cowgirl. How to break this one up... have her have an accent, but know nothing about western culture and such?
Neferet - ???
Elliot – A Nevile Longbottom type character? Or some other character that gets misunderstood, like Peter Petigrew.
Definatly open to discussion.
