Making Good Protagonists:
- They're two 'everyman' type characters, who become Arthur Dents as the story goes on
- TL;DR Version: Any tips on giving my bland protagonists flaws, but still having them be likable?

- And the way they are Arthur Dent s is that they're two pretty average people (one of them is a seamstress from the working class, the other, a wealthy son of a trader) who have to leave their homes when they become part of a magical war and must befriend a variety of people.
- So how can I keep the readers entertained by the protagonists until all of the 'cool stuff' shows up?

- You're saying the characters should do some active 'exploring' of the their own, correct? Not just be passive observers of their new surroundings?

You need to Get Known to get one of those.
