link. She definitely covered all the pitfalls. I didn't read all the feedback, but thought I'd comment anyway.

In LFN fanfic, there is a full gamut of depth of characters, from the two-dimensional to the most complicated. Also, their unique setting, Section One, and the jobs that they had to do, gave rise to oppportunity to access the dark side, if you will, of each character.

One of the things that makes LFN characters so fascinating is what the actors themselves brought to their portrayals. For example, even tho everyone complains about the Michael character being so cryptic, RD went out of his way to give us every possible silent glimpse into the man behind the mask, making way for complexity and mystery to spark the viewer's imagination.

We have all noted how this acting ensemble really "clicked" together, and made the most of each character.

One of the downsides of the show was that the background info on the characters was sketchy, and some were not revealed until well into the later seasons, ie, Birkoff, Nikita's mother, Operations VietNam experiences.

Still, there have been many creative backstories written by various authors, and what I would consider many insightful looks into the motivations of the characters that are not just a product of the obvious.

Thanks for posting this link. KT ^!^
