A to Z Challenge why Q is for QUIRKS

Q could be for QUANDARY or other questionable choices. I could quit and be quiet or feel quintessential by including a query or queries (Sir Isaac Newton had 31of those).
Q is the letter for something I like QUIRKS in my stories and QUIRKS in my characters.
The two basic synonyms for QUIRKS are FLUKES and IDIOSYNCRASIES both are essential in great story telling.
The first allows a writer to add chances, coincidences, and twists (the best are of fate) to a story line.

These are great tools to capture the reader so Q is for QUIRKS in every sense of the word. Do you have a particular QUIRK you wish to share ?
