Fic meme, Day Seven

Day 7 – Have you ever had a story change your opinion of a character?

I haven't diversified enough in Merlin for this to happen (I write the pairings that interest me and that's pretty much it), but this definitely happened in my Buffy fic.

I participated in an art before fic challenge and was enchanted by a b/w banner with Ethan, Buffy, and Giles. Now, I am not, and probably never could be, a Buffy/Giles shipper, but something about it called out to me. So I decided to give it a go. The result was This Wanton World, my very dark, very AU story about a Buffy who never went to Sunnydale. I had never really written Ethan before, and his part in it was...controversial to say the least. But the more I wrote on it, the more complex he became for me, until I was completely fascinated by him.

I still love that story - hell, the whole Worldverse. It's so broken and plays so much with the various roles people played.

Man, the more I think about it, the more I wonder if it would be possible to add to it.
