Ya I can understand and even agree with that. I was mostly saying it's not really a great character quality. It is a big important part of his character though for sure.

I think qualities like that are the great qualities, though—they're double-edged swords. On the one hand, Jason values justice and pursues it stridently; on the other, that pursuit leads him into trouble if not curbed with Biblical wisdom and principles.

I actually really like that about Jason. It's a character flaw that he wrestles with, and it's one that I can identify pretty strongly with. Makes him more humanized and relatable, y'know?

Yeah, I wouldn't like him as much if he were perfect. (my goodness I'm so terrible at talking to people even on message boards I should just shut up)

4. Ok, I'd like to take a bit of time to explain the problems with fanfiction. I write fanfiction myself and I'm not against it, but if you write or read about a character enough then your view of them can change. In Ameraka's (and really all Jason) fanfiction, he's shown as much more sweet and sensitive than he really is. Like I said I write fanfic about Buck Oliver and I do the same thing with him. I'm not necessarily saying that these characters can't cry or be sensitive and sweet but you can't use it as a reason for liking the character if it isn't shown in the audio drama.



Maybe I should stop writing fanfiction since it's inaccurate. I've been doing it wrong all this time!! I do imagine him this way..and I have to embellish sometimes because I don't know how he'd act all the time because I'm writing something that is separate from the show, I don't have models for all Jason's actions, I have to imagine him in new situations. [just ignore me I'm a sensitive and over-emotional INFP]

No. You should not stop writing. You are an amazing, talented, writer. One is who able to understand their characters well and flush out the depths of the personalities. Since finding your work I've always admired your style and the way you challenge the characters, which you make seem real, to grow and mature. Your story in the Fallout series, Echo is probably one of my favourites because you didn't ignore the fact Jason has weaknesses and is not a super human, you've made it clear he isn't perfect.
And guess what? I'm an INFP as well! *cries because she thought she was the only one*

And... I honestly think most of us are attracted to Jason because of his sense of adventure, his impulsivity and bright, charismatic personality despite what he's experienced. I can't pretend to speak for everyone here though I think I envy that a little, especially when anxiety takes hold.

Yes I defiantly agree. That's what fanfiction is for. Putting a character in a situation that they've never been in before and showing how they would react in those situations. Showing the sensitive side to characters who are usually tough is the best part of fanfiction. And anyone who takes the time to study a character as much as you have with Jason, or as much as I have with Buck deserves to write about them. Because we know them better than anyone. We study these characters because they are fascinating. And we see past they're bold exterior so much that we can figure out things about them that no one else could. So well done. Keep at it. Because I think your writing is very accurate. And don't let anyone tell you that writing fanfiction is a waste of time or is useless because it's not. Why? Because any time you take time to write something with the goal of evoking emotions in others, you accomplish that goal. Because you are an outstanding writer. And it would be a huge waste to throw away that talent now.

Wow, thanks guys. I really needed that. My doubts are at a high point right now (which happens occasionally--sometimes more ha) but I love writing and don't want to stop.

Sigh. Anyway, back to Jason....

Yes, I understand and figured as much. Sometimes we all need a boost of confidence. I was also really emotional last night because I just saw the regeneration of the 11th Doctor. Anyway I was crying and it felt good to get my emotions out in writing.

Yes, writing is good for catharsis. (though I usually end up making my characters go through terrible things! I mean there's supposed to be conflict but I usually end up feeling sorry for them when I am the cause of all their problems. ;) )

Last night I had a dream that the writers were considering killing off Jason and I was mad at them--why would they do that when there were so many more of his stories to tell? I thought, if they do it I'll just have to keep writing stories about Jason to keep him alive.
I was so relieved when I woke up and found out it was just a dream. :)
