The immediate feedback. My professional work - well, I'd never know if anyone read it or not. It goes out in the wide world and is never heard from again. But my fanfic - I hear from people who read it almost immediately. As my husband says, "It's writer crack!"
I love the apparent contradictions in Spike's character - how he, as Devilpiglet says, is "the best homicidal boyfriend, ever". I also love that he's the poster boy for Free Will. He might screw up, but he makes the choices, he doesn't rely on "destiny" to make the choices for him.
Hmm. Strengths. ::thinks:: I've got a good handle on the scariness, and I think I handle voice pretty well (at least for my favorite characters). My weakness? Plot, definitely. I'd love to be able to write more plot-driven, ensemble pieces.
