| Spike Spiegel is awesome

I probably spelt his name wrong, too. But, Spike is awesome. If I was going to have a Bebop crush, it would totally be Jet. But Spike is so cool that it's hard to write him. (You'll see how I do in the fanfic to be posted later today.)|
He's kinda like Captain Jack Sparrow. Another mega-cool character that I don't actually have a crush on, but he's awesome.
Spike is totally swoon-worthy. He's good looking, can kick ass, and is cool as all hell. So, why would I not get an anime crush on him? And what the hell is it called when you fantasize about someone being your buddy, and it has nothing to do with romance or sex or anything like that? That's how it is with Spike. I wish Spike was my friend. I don't even think I'd consider him dateable. But he'd be awesome to have as a buddy. He's totally hot, too.
I must have some weird criteria that excludes the mega-cool. Maybe it's because I think I'm mega-cool (hey, do not shatter my version of reality).
Anyway, the point is, Spike rocks, and that makes it hard for me to write him correctly. Most of my original characters are either uncool, or evil. OK, I can write cool evil. But most of my favorite fanfic characters are also either uncool or evil. Maybe uncool is too harsh, but they certainly aren't mega-cool. Or maybe it's that mega-cool characters are difficult for *all* writers to write, and so they are few and far between.
Point is, Spike is awesome. Love him.
