Oh goodness YES! I’ve had Liorah in character castles multiple times, and every time was worse than the last. She feuded with everyone, swore at the castle, almost died an alarming amount of times, and threw shoes at whoever deserved it. She also came up with very alarming threats. She’s exhausting, bless her XD

XD I love it!! XD Payton’s in a character castle at the moment, and I’m am proud that he has managed to keep his more obnoxious side under – relative – control…. for the moment, anyway….he did just get there…. But it’s probably because he made friends with the other character so he’s good! 🙂

Well, Aydin was her original love interest, until Liorah politely informed me that he wouldn’t survive a relationship with her. (Whether this was a threat or an observation goodness only knows.) However she was not incorrect, so now they have a sibling-like relationship, which is very cute. Liorah’s love interest is called Ferran, and he’s the only person who can consistently put up with her XD He somehow manages to strike the balance between encouraging her chaos and keeping her from dying. That’s impressive in and of itself XD However, it took me a lot of work to extract his backstory and personality from him, mostly because he kept changing. I think I’ve got an idea now, and I really like how it’s working out!

Well, I’m glad she told you and didn’t let things explode or let Aydin get hurt! Ferran sounds perfect for her ha ha! He must have a pretty strong character….and not be afraid of arson….. XD I’m glad you have him worked out now!

I played harp for like eight years, but I still can’t do it XD I have no idea how to bring poetry and music together, so I just settled for a few rhyming lines XD

Awesome, I’ll root around in my manuscript and see if I can dig them up!

Loll I just found a few places I just said “LYRIC” as a placeholder instead of writing anything XD

Okay here’s one of the verses, the one in my quote:

With the sunshine, shadows will come, and light seems far/ Without darkness, there is no light/ If there was no nighttime, would the dawn be as bright?/

That’s all I got XD I’m definitely neither a poet nor a songwriter XD

Oooh! The harp is so pretty! Do you plan on picking it back up at any point? One day I’d like to learn to play the violin….right now I’m saving up to get one so we’ll see how that turns out….

Oh man, that sounds like something I would do….just write lyric and put off actually writing them until the end….

I love it, that’s beautiful!! 🥰

Ha ha neither am I!

Thank you! I actually have a LOT more symbolism, almost every character has some XD I find it extremely fun to write, and you can’t really have too much. I really liked that too! There are a few more background legends in one or two cases, though they’re mostly framed as myths or fairytales! I found it really fun to figure out!

You’re welcome! What is Liorah’s symbolism?

Oh thank goodness, I get to live and wreak havoc another day XD

XD As long as you leave Aydin alone, remember? 😉😊

Oh, I will! And absolutely don’t worry about that, you have to let your characters make their mistakes and fall on their faces XD Ohhh, I like that name even better! I also obscured and changed a few names, but I’m not telling you which ones 😉 It would spoil a twist in book 1, in case you ever read it XD

😊🙂 Oh don’t worry, Payton has plenty of “falling on his face moments.” I’m already plotting up more trouble for him to get in…. Thank you! Yeah, don’t give away any spoilers! That can be so hard sometimes because you want so bad to tell someone….but you can’t…. Are you planning on publishing Gilded Blood?

Yep, we’ll find a solution to that!
