You read Warriors and watch MLP, Predator. The characters are pretty flat there too, the fan base adds a lot to the dimensions of the latter.

My sister moved out and one of her old books was a paperback collection of all the Chronicles of Amber, and the short stories etc I later found in a warez .pdf, I enjoyed it immensely and then when I got very lucky on an item drop in SLASHEM, well, Image

It's ridiculously sad he died before he could write more Amber stuff. We're left with a horrible cliffhanger  :cry:

Have you read This Immortal? It's his first published novel and it's really cool to compare to the Amber stuff.

MLP has great character development. Take Rarity for example, she was a stuck up  :bitch:  at first, but later, it was shown she had a nice side to.
Warrior has some flat characters yeah, but firepaw/star/heart's character changes over the books. He becomes more of a leader, and more courageous to take the fight to the shadowclan, and all traitors in his own.

When we talk about a character being "flat," it's a reference to how many character dimensions they have.  Rarity has one character feature - her bitchiness / niceness - and her position along that spectrum gives that character feature a "dimension" of movement.  Hence, a character dimension.  She's got exactly one.  She's the definition of a flat character.

I thought they meant that none of the characters had boobs.

Also, Rarity is not flat!
She has bitchiness yeah,

And she'll become a bit shy in some situations.

Rarity is not a bitch. She's funny, generous, smart, hardworking and also the hottest pwny.

No 34 Silver. Throw that in Thunderdumb.
Funny and generous and all that shit to!
But sometimes she's just acting like a bitch while the other pwnies are being nice. :(
