???

Huh?

I've always struggled with writing Kamina or characterizing him at all. I have difficulty getting into his head and making his personality come across. This is the reason why I've mostly avoided writing him so far (which isn't hard to do admittedly), despite having ideas that include him as a major character.

...Yet tonight, I just randomly started writing a short fic about Kamina & Simon in the medieval AU from Parallel Works #1. And I'm writing him easily. Effortlessly. It's even fun.

So, what? I can write AU!Kamina but not canon!Kamina? The only thing different about them is the setting and lack of giant robots. I don't get it.
