cheater! You didn't do 15 fandoms - the horror!

From the ones I know I have to say that for men and women you seem to gravitate towards broken heros.

Dean, Buffy, Cara, Kenzi, Riley, Caroline, John, Faith, etc. all fight supernatural, or highly advanced technological (and all sufficently advanced technology being like magic...) enemies. Often the fight is on a global scale.

And they're all broken-and trying to hide it behind bravado, or snark or putting on a happy face. None of them have much luck with dating either-either a string of busted relationships (Buffy, to an extent John and Riley), or they've chosen to be very casual in their encounters to avoid getting close (Faith, Cara, Dean, mostly)

What if you don't *have* 15 different fandoms? 15 different characters works just fine.

I agree with the broken heroes thing. Very noticeable. *grin*

But you also like the snarky/sarcastic: Dean/Amy/Faith/Topher.

And characters who resist their so-called destinies. Dean, John Connor, Faith, Amy and Cara.

Just to throw in my two cents, yeah I agree with loxley. re: 15 characters.

Agreed on the above 2 patterns. I'd add that they (aside of a couple who I don't know well enough to say) are centered around some kind of angst, whether it be love related, or just life related. I'd assume that that basically falls under "broken" but that was my first thought before seeing the first 2 comments.
