!! Character Poll Time !!
so. it has been long enough since I had one of these, and it's also long enough since I had something new and exciting happen in my rooster. as much as I love my children, the latest additions and changes are pretty similar to each other, or have made things pretty similar. they're all pretty serious, and work well with serious plots — which is fine, I love those plots. especially if they're also angsty, as anyone threading and plotting with me for longer than like two months, knows well. but I need a new kind of mindset.
Finnick Odair — The Hunger Games
I'm finally reading these books after years of wanting to, and just. they're so so good. why did I not read them earlier. either way: I already loved Finnick in the movies, I absolutely fell for him in the books and I relate to him on deep levels. he deserves so much, ugh.
Sonmi-451 — Cloud Atlas
I've tried it with Markus RK200 back when, and I love writing sentient robots; but Markus doesn't seem to be the right android for me in this setting, and that's okay. Somni on the other hand, was always my favourite part of Cloud Atlas, especially in the book!
Johnny Faust — American Satan
likely the least known of the bunch. he's the charismatic lead singer of a metal band (and played by Andy Black from Black Veil Brides) and has made a deal with the devil to help his band with their success. or, more like, kinda slipped into it, but you know the devil needs consent, so he did make that decision on his own. which of course leads him down a path of utter sin once the sacrifices and stakes are growing bigger, but he does have his heart in the right spot, usually, and is trying to stay on a morally somewhat acceptable path. for people who've had to read Faust in school, yes, that movie is leaning heavily on that, but with a rather modern setting of course, and the satanism portrayed is the closest thing to the real deal that I've ever seen in movies.
I have muse for all of them
