Hey, first post! I have an idea for a character. Basically, he is perceived as a "loser". He is intelligent, but extremely unmotivated. He does not have many friends, and is somewhat socially incompetent. My question is: would this kind of character be interesting to read? Over the course of the story, the character does start applying himself, and he learns how to deal with problems and see how he can make use of his intelligence. I'm just afraid that readers will not make a connection to the character in the beginning of the story. And I don't want the readers to pity his situation, because his circumstances are basically his fault. As for background for the plot, he is a high school student. Then, he is suddenly transported to a different world. So the basic plot is him trying to survive and get back home.
