General question, inspired by librae's great evil!Paul fabble:
What kind of characters/character traits are you drawn to? (In writing, TV, movies anything.)
Me, personally, I love manipulative, brilliant characters that are kinda sneaky. The thing is, they have to be genuinely smart, because dumb characters pretending to be smart can be seen from a mile away. They have to have a bit of evil in them. They have to play elaborate mind games. They reveal and conceal whatever they want, whenever they want. Man, I love those guys and girls.
