Monday's Question of the Day!

*You are welcome to use my meme - just credit me please*

Question: What are your favorite qualities in a character?
(Thanks to Kari for the question idea!)

My Answer:
My favorite qualities in a female character is strength and sarcasm. I love when there sassy and in control, somewhat like me ;) As for a male character, I love a bad boy that comes off as a jerk but is really a sweetheart deep down. They're a challenge and I enjoy seeing their transformation.

I'd love to know your thoughts, so leave me a comment :)

Exciting question! Hmm...
Female - Strengh of mind, can hold her own in a debate, ladylike manners but can drink you under the table or kick your butt if need be, strong sense of morals and close to her family if she has any. Preferably a one man woman. Long legs or long hair is a sexy feature.

Male - Tall, dark features, knows how to handle himself in either a classy or rough situation, gentle strong hands that let you know he's worked for a living, sense of pride, a twinge of jealousy or possessiveness, and preferably a one woman man. Scars are a sexy feature.

I like intelligence and sarcastic wit in both :)

I'm a huge believer in strong female characters.. but believably so. Not just "I can do anything" without struggling.

For men.. anything hunky lol. JK JK. I seriously don't know about guys.. I'm more flexible with them lol.

I like my females strong, yet still feminine. I love it when they're witty and can hold their own in a verbal match.

I like both the male and female to be attractive. I also agree with Yesenina that they should be exclusive to one another. I wouldn't want a guy who I knew had slept with half of the girls from my school. I want him to have been waiting for me.

I'm not into the bad boy, but like the guy to have a sense of humor. Someone who's kind and just has laughter in his eyes.

Those are my dream characters :)

When it comes to female characters, I want to read about a girl who is confident, intelligent, and isn't afraid to stand up for herself and what she believes in. She's admirable and strong -- not afraid to get her hands dirty, sweat, or kick a little butt -- but she's not invincible or perfect, either. She has flaws, has her moments of vulnerability, and sometimes she just needs a shoulder to cry on.

Same with the dudes: he's gotta have both strong and weak aspects. He's an alpha male, but he's also in touch with his "feminine" side. He puts his lady first, above all else. He'd do anything to protect her and keep her safe -- but she'd do the same for him! They balance each other out.

Such a good question, E! I could go on and on but I think that's enough from me. :D

I like my female characters to have inner strength and the will to do what needs to be done, no matter what.
I look for similar characteristics in heroes. He must have strength of character an the willingness to do what is right, no matter the cost.

I appreciate a dry wit in both characters.
