JustNoPointThat's how I feel about my characters. I could imagine being a good friend to most of them, but I know so much about their problems and hang-ups, it'd be nothing more than that. I'd like to take each of them aside and help them to talk through their issues and get their lives straight.
Thing is we actually know our own characters way too well.
Plus, I don't have too many female characters anyway. And I think Boudicca could be quite scary in real life!
