Are your characters too normal? Let's fix that, shall we? Post ideas for quirkiness here.

RedPath | 562 comments Needs to have 2 perfectly sharpened pencils on his or hers desk. Always.

Summer | 349 comments Sticks varios things in their hair. Maybe they could twirl kitting needles, chop sticks, pencils, forcks, whatever they need later.


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Forgets everything

Has the horrible gift of being able to act like they know what they're saying. (I do this a ton. It's how I survive English class. I can never finish the books in time, but I still manage to do a 2-page essay. It's a gift and a curse.)


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Talks with their hands. *cough*Roo*cough* (She does this so much we think she should have her own sign language or interpretive dance company.)


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Has a song for everything (Mr. Young!)


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Does lip-popping noises when they're bored.
Wiggles ears.
Randomly bursts into accents.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Says 'stupid zebra' when they're frustrated
Has really creative substitutions for swear words.

Randi (The Artist Formerly known as Guitar Chick) (guitarchick) | 48 comments I CALL GOOD CELEBRITY IMPRESSIONS!!!! IT'S MINE!!!1


Thank you so much for the idea. I'll give that awesomely amazing gift to Helana.


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

One of my characters always has to be doing something with his hands--he picks at the grass a lot.
Another one eats food one item at a time. As in she would eat her entire serving of potatoes first, and then move on to the next food, etc.

message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

OH! Guess what! I finally found that part of that NCIS episode I wanted to show you! I found it two minutes after I got on the bus. It was obnoxious. I tried so hard this morning and then it took so little effort on my second attempt.

message 44: by RedPath (new)

RedPath | 562 comments Licks his tongue over his fangs a lot.


message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

Thank you. That is genius. Especially since he actually has fangs, unlike somebody I know in the stupid T-word.

Anything else?
