Day Three: A female character you hated but grew to love
Mrs Coulter (His Dark Materials)
There’s no image for this one because all I could find was pictures from the film (which I haven’t seen and don’t really want to, tbqh) and fanart.
[N.B. This contains spoilers]

In an attempt to actually live up to my resolution to use my livejournal more than once a month, I've decided to cross-post my responses to this meme. All of these posts are staying public because pretty much everyone can see them on my Tumblr anyway.
Day One: Favourite lead female character
Asano Rin (Blade of the Immortal)
Here's some more information (taken from the community's user info) for those of you who are wondering what on earth this is all about:
AN ANIME/MANGA FANDOM CHARACTER TOURNAMENT based on f_march_madness (format used with permission!).
This is a single elimination, competitive animanga fandom wide tournament to determine THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST OF ANIME AND MANGA FANDOM.
animetournament will start out with a whopping NINETY-FOUR fandoms. These will be split amongst two prelim voting posts. One character from each fandom will win their poll, and then advance to the next bracket, where they will face a character from another fandom.
Preliminaries: 96 fandoms
First Round: 96 characters
Second Round: 48 characters
Third Round: 24 characters
Semi-finals: 12 characters
Super Six: 6 characters
Final Three: 3 characters
The winner of the final three becomes the 2012 CHAMPION!
Korra - WIP by ~kirin2009 on deviantART
This is my first attempt at drawing Korra (last shown here). One of the fun things about AtLA fanart is that you can draw characters doing all kinds of OTT flashy moves that you’d never use in a real fight. Flying side kick + firebending = suddenly a lot more effective.
I had to sharpen this one a lot because my scanner is rather fond of eating my linework. Colours and a (simple) background will be added later. For now, I’m more interested in hearing about how to sort out her clothing folds and fix any anatomy errors that are still present. I think I find it easier to draw baggy clothes - it must be all those years of drawing Inuyasha fanart. :p
Remember this post? Well, it turned out that the "We Love the Women that Fandom Hates" fest was so popular that the people who organised it couldn't keep up with all the sign-ups and decided to devote an entire community to it instead. Instead of sign-ups, every character has a post of her own and there, in comments, everyone posts links to what they've created.
I highly encourage you to join, if you haven't already.
Female Character Friending Meme
Sayo @ Paperdemon
So, it only took me four months to upload some actual artwork to my new DA account. And it's a scrap. Well done, self. ^^;
Anyhow, this is Sayo one of my (horror of horrors) original characters from an Inuyasha fanfic I've been working on for God knows how long, which will hopefully see the light of day before the end of this decade. Until I started on this story I was very reluctant to use OCs as anything other than minor/background characters in my fanfiction because there's so many pitfalls to avoid when it comes to OCs. However, in this story there was no way I could make a canon character the antagonist without making things *incredibly* contrived and I needed a cast of supporting characters who weren't just there to act as plot devices. None of them are romantically involved with any canon characters (except for a couple of one-sided crushes), so hopefully that'll get me out of Mary-Sue Hell for the time being. j/k
( Cut for more babbling about my art... )
*goes back to looking for temp work*
I'm offering one fic of at least 1,000 words for the help_haiti auctions. help_haiti was created in the morning of January 13, 2010, as a place for fandomers to help raise money to help in the rescues, recoveries and rebuilding of Haiti following the tragic earthquake on January 12, 2010.
This is how it works:
1- Members of fandom put things up for auction: fic, art, icons, crafts, various interesting miscellany, etc.
2- You bid, and the highest bidder donates that amount of money to a Haiti-relevant aid organization or charity of their choice.
If you're interested in bidding on a fic by me (remember, you get to tell me what to write), please go to MY THREAD.
I'm offering fics for Avatar: the Last Airbender, Blade of the Immortal, Fullmetal Alchemist (Manga), Inuyasha, Mermaid Saga and One Piece. The auctions close on the the twentieth, and the fic will be delivered by Valentine's Day. Bids start at ten dollars.
If you've got the time, then be sure to take a look at some of the other auctions. There's an incredible variety of things on offer.
( Cut for those who've already seen this on their Flists. If not, read on... )
