When I began to write four years ago (I was 12), the people liked my short stories just enough to want to "participate" in them. That was the time when I wrote a sarcastic character, one which always doubts the ideas of others and makes fun of a ridiculous character. They are not exactly against each other. It's just that the sarcastic one can't stand hearing him. He also is the pessimistic, criticizing the characters and their ideas. Very hard to trick. Again, this is his personality, not that he is just a dick. He fully supports the protagonists. On the other hand, the ridiculous character is acting just how I named it. He doesn't know too much, but his replies are very funny and laughable. He doesn't contribute to the plot (I mean, he can't help with vital informations, muscle and any other things). Even so, he is taking part of all the adventures because the protagonists think he is a valuable friend, after all. I plan to design such characters for my next novel, but I don't know how to make them work. I mean, I don't write humour, so that should be a little hard for me. I will try to get used to it. Do you think those archetypes have some weaknesses in entertaining the readers? There's something you don't like about them? Thank you.
