Stolen from regulus_kat 

Pick any character from a fandom of mine, and I'll answer the following questions (or, you know, whichever ones I feel like).

(I would prefer characters from Harry Potter, War and Peace or Star Wars but if you're familiar with other fandoms I like/know than go ahead and use characters from those too :) )

01. What is your opinion of this character?  If you like, explain why you like him/her.
 
02. Is he/she important to the general plot?
 
03. Can you relate to the character at all?  Does he/she grip you emotionally?
 
04. How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
 
05. Do you ship this character with any other character?  Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)?  (Romance-wise or platonic)
 
06. Is there anything about the character you would change?
 
07. If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?  Would you get along well?  Fall in love with him/her?  Dislike?  Have a friendly rivalry?
 
08. Does this character make the cut as one of your all-time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
 
09. Would you hype this character up or warn about this character to someone new in fandom?
 
10. Is this character popular with the fanbase?

I will ask the same thing. Rabastan. I'll be him at the con, and what with RPing him, I am now all nervous about him.

Let m quickly leave a disclaimer that since this character is shown very very little in canon (mentions mostly), I have mostly my fanon and other people’s fanon to rely on in answering these, therefore subjectiveness prevails heh.

01. What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
I’m neutral toward Rabastan. He’s one of the young DEs so I have a certain amount of “my side” sympathy for him, but otherwise no specific fondness. I do like him a lot more than his brother (which isn’t saying much, given how I feel about Roddy).

02. Is he/she important to the general plot?
Not particularly. But then JKR didn’t make a point of making her antagonists worthwhile so…

03. Can you relate to the character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
Not really. I mean, I feel like Rabastan is quite centered and possibly even a bit introverted. I guess I can relate to the introverted part, but my introverted is a bit more like Regulus – a little more shy and “inner-world” than stoic.

04. How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
I like the fandom well enough. I’m most active in this fandom right now. However, this is partially because the fandom that is #1 for me is tiny/practically non-existent.

05. Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (Romance-wise or platonic)
You know, Rabastan is the one I’ve never shipped really. I see him as Regulus’ best friend I kinda wonder at his relationship with his brother because I feel like they would still be close, but then there would always be the difference in personality…

06. Is there anything about the character you would change?
Hmmm….I’d give him a nudge once in a while so he can stop trying to seem older than he really is once in a while. I guess it’s hard with his older brother to live up to but then Evan and Ashley Mulciber have to as well and they manage without the stoicism :p

07. If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her? Would you get along well? Fall in love with him/her? Dislike? Have a friendly rivalry?
…The thing is, in Real Life I disagree greatly with elitist politics, so I’m quite afraid that I would be on the fall out with the entire DE crowd. Given my “fandom image” (as in Slytherin Pureblood/Halfblood) I would probably be a bit weary of Rabastan, but I don’t think I’d dislike him, and House Loyalty can be a strong thing.

08. Does this character make the cut as one of your all-time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
As I said, I’m fairly neutral toward him.

09. Would you hype this character up or warn about this character to someone new in fandom?
I’d hype the DE/Slytherin crowd collectively :)

10. Is this character popular with the fanbase?
Not very, but much more so than a lot of the other minor characters/DEs.

Bellatrix (Severus would be too easy of course)

Again, as a disclaimer, lots of reliance on personal fanon :p

01. What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
Bella is…interesting. It’s kind of hard to like her – she goes rather left to center after Azkaban and even during the First War I think she was quite extreme in her views. Her obvious worship of the Dark Lord is something I dislike. But Tony loves her and he’s on “my side” so…I can’t disown her completely :)

02. Is he/she important to the general plot?
She’s not exactly a central character, but her influence does increase as the books progress. She’s probably one of the more important antagonists barring Tom and the Malfoys.

03. Can you relate to the character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
Bella is very interesting. I guess she grips me cognitively/creatively more than emotionally. Lets just think about this – she’s one of the very very very few girl DEs and hey, why would there be so few women fighting? Consider their society, consider how she was raised. She’s actually quite a rebel in a lot of ways, even to her own side. …All in all though, I can’t say I relate to her.

04. How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
I’m very active in Harry Potter, even if it is not the fandom I’m most emotionally attached to.

05. Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (Romance-wise or platonic)
I ship her with Antonin. Majorly <3

06. Is there anything about the character you would change?
The craziness. Bella does lose it after Azkaban. I’d really rather that had not happened.

07. If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her? Would you get along well? Fall in love with him/her? Dislike? Have a friendly rivalry?
Real Life, I’d probably be on a fall out with the entire DE crown – I’m not much for elitist/conservative politics. Considering my “fandom image” I’d probably be in a friendly – as friendly as it can be with Bella – competition with her.

08. Does this character make the cut as one of your all-time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
I don’t know if she’s a favorite…I have a hard time with female characters as favorites…but I do enjoy writing her from time to time :)

09. Would you hype this character up or warn about this character to someone new in fandom?
This one depends on the person. I’d hype the DEs/Slytherins collectively :)

10. Is this character popular with the fanbase?
Actually, a hell of a lot more than you’d expect…
