    And after reading your post it’s clear I got Isaac’s character wrong…

    I’ll just change the ending to mine.

    When Teagen looks through Isaac shoves him in and follows. The hand holding him was in preparation to jump, not hold him back.

    If one of the tunnels has wolves maybe the others have like golems or animated armor. Something out of the norm like the rest of the castle.

    So, are we doing all of the posts on the other thread and coordinating things on this one?

    @joelle-stone Ok so I have a question. You mentioned that you wanted to see how Lytt would do with a love interest, I think? Maybe not exactly how you phrased it, but that was the gist? So I’ve just kinda been rolling with that with Dharin lol, which I’m really liking because he hasn’t really had much experience with that either… But anyways, assuming you’re cool with him and her being a “thing” in some way, how would we like to continue and “flesh out” their relationship/feelings? At the moment, I can do pretty much anything with Dharin’s feelings. I can have him realize that these unknown emotions he’s feeling are love, and decide to make a move of some sort (idk like kiss her or something XD), or he can be uncertain about what he’s feeling and wait for her to do something…? Idk, what do you think? Any thoughts?


    @christlover
    I believe so.

    I am going to have Vrahe join Teagan and Isaac to start off.

    @christlover

    Fourty wolves?!!!

    Okay, will do. (:

     

    And then… I’m considering pulling Teagen out and placing in someone completely different… (not necessarily in the same room.)  I have Teagen’s profile pretty good, but this other character almost not at all.

    I don’t really want to take away Teagen from these relationships… But I will if Teagen is not helping anyone else develop their characters. (So I can develop Joseph.)

    So, Dashuri and @rusted-knight , will/is Teagen help/ing you round-out your Character in a new way? Or have you already had someone like Teagen in your Character’s past, and already have their reactions planned out for such interactions?

    (I’m okay either way.)

    @kimlikesart

    Sorry about the 40 wolves. Completely arbitrary (and in hindsight probably excessive) number. I have not had a character like Vrahe has not had a character like Teagan in his past, so I was looking forward to interactions with him.

     

    BTW, feel free to reduce the number of wolves. I just wanted to make it feel like a challenge, and given we have at two master assassins and three people with guns, I didn’t know what a reasonable number of wolves would be to make it feel difficult.

    No, forty wolves is fine. (: I’m also glad Teagen is serving/about to serve a purpose because I’m really enjoying writing him on here.

     

    @anyone-whos-interested

    After writing the last bit I realize I never expounded on one part of Teagen to the general populace: He is a coward and a bully.

    He will fight and cuss anyone down, leaving them bloody over the slightest offense if he knows there is no way for him to loose. But, if he knows there is chance of losing, of being wounded, of having to hold account, he will flee. He is unloyal, always looking out for his own interests even while he despises himself. He stands for nothing but his own ire and pleasure.  His own lily-livered skin.

    At this point in his arc I find it hard to stand him. But I do, for his interaction with other characters, and moreso, his character arc.

     

    Basic arc:

    At twenty-five, he opens as an imature powder keg, a handsome man with a bad mouth and ready fists. He is unloyal, and unrespectful. Bitter at the world, himself, and everything with.

    At the end he has learned to love (agape, philia) and be loved (agape, philia, pragma). He has put his heart, soul, mind, life, and strength into Jesus’ hands. He willingly dies for someone else. Someone he doesn’t even like…that is to say, he can’t stand the man, yet he agapes him anyway. (This one he dies for murdered Zicari, Teagen’s closest friend and mentor.)

    The after effects of Zicari’s death…and then Teagen’s sacrifice are strong and long.

    @everyone

    I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet for the past few months. I was really busy for several weeks, and then I’ve been struggling with my health the past few weeks. Sadly, I’ll be dropping out since I can’t keep up with it anymore. 🙁 But I had a lot of fun participating in this while I could and reading about everyone’s characters!

    Courage, dear heart.

    @joelle-stone

    I’m gonna go ahead and write the next part from Dharin’s perspective if that’s ok. I’ll post it here first, and then you can tell me if I should put it on the other thread 🙂 I’m feeling inspired right now and don’t wanna lose it XD

    What I’m kinda gonna go for in these next couple parts is Dharin realizing he really likes Lytt, and would do essentially anything to keep her safe from whatever the castle throws at them. *shrugs* We’ll see how it goes 😀

    Gotta go over to the other thread to see what the last thing I wrote was XD
