*me trying to have a conversation with my characters*
Me: Heyo guys! How ya doin’?
Everyone: . . .
Me: Ooook? Azeria! What’s up?!
Azeria: Like you don’t know . . .
Me: ??? Lykos? How’s it goin’ bro?
Lykos: It’s goin’.
Me: What’s wrong with you guys? Klokan? Got any jokes?
Klokan: Ugh . . . Why did the dragon cross the road?
Me: I dunno . . . Why?
Klokan: So that he could eat the chicken and make it shut up.
Me: Wow. Uh . . . Tiikeri?
Me: Fiiinally! Guys, what’s wrong?
Gavran: You know perfectly well what’s wrong.
Ceyran: Don’t play dumb, missy.
Me: Wait, what?
Azeria: You left us on a cliffhanger, remember?!
Lykos: A literal cliffhanger . . .
Me: I did???
Elnias: Seriously. We’re literally dangling off a cliff. How much more literal can you get?
Me: Oh yeaaaaah . . .
Sowa: . . . So . . . Can you get us down?!?
Me: Because . . . Uh . . . I have my reasons . . .
Azeria: Pfft. More like you have no idea.
Me: . . .
Sowa: She’s serious.
Tiikeri: Hey, it’s kinda fun dangling off a cliff, right . . .?
Gavran: Tiik. No.
Tiikeri: . . . Oh . . .
Lykos: Hey, are ya ever gonna fix Elnias’s clothes?
Me: Oh yeaaaaahhh . . .
Elnias: What’s wrong with my clothes?!
Lykos: Dude. They’re purple.
Elnias: So what?
Ceyran: Purple is sooo not your color, El.
Me: She’s not wrong there . . .
Elnias: Well I like it, and it’s the color of a scholar, so hah. Nyah.
Lykos: Oh, c’mon. Don’t you know how ridiculous you look? Besides, it’s too bright.
Tiikeri: I think it looks fine . . .?
Azeria: El, you’re literally a homing beacon of color.
Azeria: Oh brother . . .
Me: Sorry, but I do sorta need to change your clothes . . .
Sowa: Dude. Why in the world would you say it spelled like that?
Me: Sorry, but Az is right. You are a beacon . . .
Elnias: Oh, please don’t! I’ll do anything!
Me: *ideas for new plot twists*
Me: Ok, we’re gonna flip a coin. Heads for new clothes, tails for Elnias decides. Ready?
Elnias: No . . . ?
Me: And it’s HEADS!
Tiikeri: Um . . . El just fainted . . .
Azeria: Hey, you know that was a double-headed coin, right?
Everyone: Hehe . . .
Me: Don’t worry, I’ll have him in normal clothes real soon. Now can somebody wake him up?
Gavran: On it.
Tiikeri: GUESS WHAT?!
Tiikeri: GAVRAN LIKES CEYRAN!
Gavran: HEY! I DO NOT!
Tiikeri: Gavran and Ceyran sitting in a tree.
Gavran: Why you little—
Gavran: GET BACK HERE!
Me: Wait Wait Wait. You two like each other?!
Lykos & Azeria: Bleh.
Sowa: Ugh... Their names are so close I can’t think of a good ship name . . .
Elnias: Well you are the one who wrote them . . . ?
Me: Yeah, but . . . Huh?
Ceyran: WE DO NOT LIKE EACH OTHER.
Tiikeri: Suuuuure . . .
Tiikeri: EEK! HIDE ME!
Azeria: If things are seriously about to get mushy over here . . .
Ceyran: THEY’RE NOT.
Lykos: Good. ‘Cause I’d have to eliminate Gavran . . .
Me: NUUU! That’s my job!
Tiikeri: HEEELP! HE’S AFTER ME!
Me: Gavran, quit it. Or I just might let Lucky do it . . .
Gavran: . . . Fine . . .
Me: One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight . . . Waaaiiit . . . Where’s Orel?
Lykos: He be dead.
Klokan: Out to pasture.
Me: Nononono. He wasn’t supposed to die! Hang on . . . Lemme fix something . . .
Orel: I am ALIVE!
Orel: Woah, wait. Tiik, it’s just me.
Azeria: Calm down. It’s just Orel and he’s not a ghost.
Tiikeri: A-A-Are you sure . . .?
Lykos: Very sure. Go kick him in the shins to prove it.
Orel: Hey, now just wait a- OOF. Still as painful as ever . . .
Orel: Nice to see you, too, kid.
Sowa: So . . . How’s he alive . . .?
Me: Well, it’s simple. I just rewrote his death scene,
Orel: And THANK GOODNESS! I survived many an ambush, shipwreck, prison, sickness, and Klokan’s jokes—
Orel: —only to be eaten by a giant bug . . . Lamest. Death. Ever.
Me: Oh, c’mon! I thought it was kinda cool!
Azeria: Uh . . . That is literally the worst death ever. It’s not even cool, much less heroic.
Orel: Yeah, couldn’t you have thought of anything better?
Me: Excuse me?!
Gavran: Maybe something with a little more excitement,
Sowa: More adventure.
Ceyran: More mystery.
Tiikeri: Wait. Are we seriously planning Orel’s death . . .?
Me: You guys think it’s so easy to write a book? Well, why don’t you try?!
Lykos: Maybe we will.
Elnias: I’ve got a scroll and quill. Fire away,
Azeria: Ok, ideas?
Klokan: A rampant army of manticores?
Sowa: A daring voyage across the sea!
Ceyran: A fashionable gala infiltrated by spies?
Gavran: A mob of mind-controlled warlocks?
Tiikeri: A giant flying whale!!!
Everyone: . . . ?
Me: Pfft. You guys suck at this . . .
Azeria: Hm . . . What about a renegade group of rebel heroes who overthrow their oppressing and evil author?
Everyone: DOWN WITH THE AUTHOR!
Me: Stay back! I’m warning you! I could replace you all with new characters . . .
Elnias and Sowa: NUUUUU!
Ceyran: We’ll be really good!
Me: Nope. My mind is made up.
Klokan: What?! No!
Tiikeri: Hey! Wait!
Me: New characters comin’ up . . .
Lykos: Now just wait one spell castin’ minute . . .
Me: Aaaaaaaaaand . . . Introducing Jaxion! New character number one!
Jaxion: Um . . . Hello?
Azeria: SCRAM, LOSER.
Me: Az, you’re next in the replacement list . . .
Me: Heh. Sorry, you had your chance . . .
Azeria: And you had yours.
So here it is! A very, very jumbled mess of...well...nothing really...
ANYWAYS, meet the characters of my WIP story, FOREVERMORE!
- Azeria is the strong-willed adventurer. Nobody crosses her and gets away with it, she doesn’t back down from a fight.
- Lykos is the loyal protector. He will do anything for the ethers and often puts his life out on the line for them.
- Tiikeri is the energetic bookworm. She is always happy and upbeat, and loves adventure.
- Klokan is the ridiculous jokester. His jokes are so dumb that they’re funny, and he can always brighten any situation.
- Sowa is the silent observer. She is quiet, but very intelligent and nothing gets past her.
- Orel is the sporty athlete. He’s strong, loyal, and courageous, everything a hero should be.
- Ceyran is the stuck-up diva. She is very concerned about her looks and hates to get dirty.
- Elnias is the intelligent nerd. He is very smart and randomly rattles off knowledge in words nobody knows.
- Gavran is the cocky show-off. He is sorta like a Keefe [[KOTLC]], very concerned about his hair.
Well, it’s still a very much WIP, but I totally love this guys! :D
