That said, IS girls have been so predictable... I haven't had that problem yet.

Watch the episodes focusing on the characters again and try to 'get a feel for their personalities. Try to put yourself in the character's shoes AND get an understanding of what the character is like, you'll be more accurate than just going by what you see onscreen on the show.

If you have ever taken a theater acting course, it should be easy--try to act like the character (in your head, mentally)--basically to get their personality in such a way that you can pretty much know what their reactions to situations will be spontaneously.

A lot of fanfic writers make characters totally OOC when writing because they make them act the way they think they should act (i.e. like a director telling someone to act a certain way), as opposed to being the person.
This is good, I'll be walking and talking like each of the girls for about a day I guess.

Though my friends will think I'm out of my mind, FANFICTION IS SRS BIZNEZZ!!
