Bogwitch's Icon Advent Calendar - Day 4

Open Day Four!

Lorne! He's so up there in my crew of favourite supporting characters. 'Player' is fantastic - the colours are amazing. I may snag, actually... I don't have any Lorne icons.

Yep. Snagging. Thank you!!

I love Lorne too, but he's one I tend to avoid because I can't write him.


Same with me and half the characters... ;)

There's a stalwart set I avoid: Lorne, Anya, Xander, Faith, Darla, Andrew, Cordelia. I thought I did Anya and Xander okay, on my only attempt, but my Cordelia was embarassing.

I've never tried Faith or Cordelia (and dear God do I not want to). I can generally get away with a few people in passing, but I couldn't hope to do anything where they're a substantial part.

Sometimes there's too large a cultural gul to cross to get some characters right. I was thinking about how I would go about writing a Maimi Vice fic the other day and the answer was that it's not even worth attempting (not that I was going to).

I'm still worried that one day someone's going to see past my 'let's mention Cheetos and it'll all be fine' charade and flame me for being the culturally-unresearched fraud I am.

You can always mention Twinkies. I've actually eaten a Twinkie.

What do they taste like? I always imagined that really oily fake sponge stuff and gross custard you get in doughnuts (not that they don't sound pleasant...).

Yeah, pretty much like that.
