Lover of underrated characters
I'm just wondering but how many do you think is too many main characters in a fan fic?
While it should always be a goal to make every character you have as well-rounded as possible (especially when you have a world to explore), beginner writers should go with one or two characters at a time, at least with main characters (which is usually the number of central characters you have at a time). It's usually forgivable for new writers to underwrite surrounding characters, but a background character has some kind of importance to the story at some point, they do need more characterization than your average background character.
That's the norm, but every writer is different. As long as you aren't cramming a lot of characters in at one time and have an uneven balance from the start, you should be fine with handling a few characters. Then of course, jireh the provider mentioned point-of-views, but that doesn't exactly limit the amount of characters either which way you put it, since it's whichever is more comfortable for you to use, or makes more sense to use for the one particular story.
Agree with you. My first 4 chapters of my re edited original story "Feli Chronicles Vitandes" can help you as how to build basic chapters with first person or third person. Though I hope you will enjoy reading my story Kutie Pie. This is a book for my first video game. To be honest, O'm more on the avid side of writing stories
