I think I'm comfortable writing most of the Sherlock characters, now, though it took me ages to find Sherlock's voice. I've never tried to write Moriarty, nor do I care to. I don't like dark stories, and I don't want to get in his head.

In terms of least favourite to write...I would have said Sherlock, but I think I've got the hang of him, now. I used to have a hard time not just writing everything he's noticing, and finding the right balance between telling the story but also having his deductions come in. I've sort of settled on showing he's still deducing through dialogue, commenting on something, or narration, noting something, rather than a constant onslaught of facts. Even though I think that's what it must be like in his brain. I'd never want to do 1st person POV with him.

In other fandoms, I also find Bond hard to write, partly for the same reason as Sherlock, and partly because he's a bit darker than I usually narrate for.

As for favourite characters to write, I do love Molly a lot. I find her quite easy to write for. I also enjoy Lestrade and John, though if I'm not careful, they sound like each other. Q is my go to narrator in my Trio verse, because he's the non-deducing brother, so he's free to tell a story without so many facts. I'd say, of everyone, I enjoy writing John the most. I love doctors, and he's narrated the majority of my stories, so I'm very comfortable with him now.

I also enjoy writing Abby, because I love to write kids. And, in other fandoms, Harry Dresden is one of my favourite narrators ever.
