    Hey guys! In the meantime, could you not tag me in any post on the Character Castle? I’m trying to slim down my screen time right now. A little busy!

    Thanks, y’all! Hope to be back soon! <3

    For those who are curious about my latest post, becoming ‘fey’ means having your soul damaged to the point you become a fetch, or a hollow soul that does not pass on after death.  Damage to the soul can cause pain, memory loss, change in personality, illness, instability when practicing magic, alterations to your physical appearance, impediments to communication, and generally your entire being becoming unstable.  Brendin is much of the way to becoming full fey already.

    If you want to get a better idea of Brendin’s character here’s some songs to listen to (in order of character development 😁 ):

    Monster by Beth Crowley

    No One Will Save You by Aviators

    Battle Cry by Beth Crowley

    Stronger by The Score

    At the moment Brendin is currently around Battle Cry.

    Wow, y’all, I love what’s happening.

    ,

    Lol, you made me laugh with your last post. Yeah, I just found out that Virtus is not the patient read-through-a-whole-book-in-one-sitting type person. XD (And actually, he’s “in love” with another character from my book, not Lytt, although he is friends with her. But don’t change your post; I like it the way it is!)

    Hey cool I know two different songs called Monster too (neat lyrics all of them btw Brendin and Alessio should get on great with each other). There’s Monster by Skillet (with Sick of It and Back From the Dead to go with it) and Monster from the Broadway Frozen (cos I scavenge songs from Disney movies whether or not I’ve seen/liked/heard of the movie before). Both are some of my favorite songs. And fit Alessio pretty ok :).


    @joelle-stone

    Lol, Alessio definitely is the wants-to-read-through-a-whole-book-in-one-sitting-even-if-there’s-a-huge-crisis-going-on type person.

    (And actually, he’s “in love” with another character from my book, not Lytt, although he is friends with her. But don’t change your post; I like it the way it is!)

    Oh yeah, you said that about him somewhere in here and I didn’t even think of it!
    That’s ok, Alessio just really likes seeing people having pleasant relationships, he’s so cute really. *Alessio glaring up at me from behind a book he stole; then why did you ruin my life? Me; but…it’s such a redemptive story. And you do get better. And… Alessio; I hate you. So much. Me slams Fourth Wall closed to avoid sobbing hysterically for my poor baby! Alessio; sets the computer on fire.*

    @this-is-not-an-alien,

    Lol, watching you interact with your characters is so much fun! 😀

    And yup! Actually, Virtus is going for the person in my profile pic, Marina. She tries to ignore him. XD

    He’s been pretty messed up, but at heart Brendin is a pretty friendly guy and tends to act like an older brother to everyone.  And he can (try to) help Alessio with fire magic.

    On the shipping subject though, Brendin does have a person he’s in love with…but because of the damage to his soul he has no idea she even exists or that he ever had that kind of relationship.

    Oh thanks! Lol I don’t even know Marina and my literal first thought was; ‘she is way out of his league.’

I can’t wait until Alessio finally works up the nerve to ask him *Alessio; if you hadn’t given me so many reasons to have trust issues. me; I am not engaging! I am not engaging! Back in the novel with you!*

    So if Virtus is one-handed, which hand is he missing?  And what’s left?

    @skylarynn,

    Erm… *thinks, then gives up and looks in WIP for info* It’s his left hand. And I’m pretty sure he lost it to infection after receiving his first war wound. They had to amputate, so all that’s left is his wrist. He uses it as a punching thing, though. However, I am not missing a limb, so IDK if that would hurt to use it that way or not. XD

    Ha ha, I love the way you worded that. XD Yup, that’s pretty much how Virtus works. (ahem, he also may travel with three people who have varying fire powers so… :P)

    And now Nithel’s so caught up in emotions, that his ears have deadened the noise of whatever that thing is…. 😑😐😶

    Dreadful boy…. I have no idea how he’s going to defeat the villain at the end of his story…. 😑😣😐

    @this-is-not-an-alien

    Idea! How about the end of the passage opens up to one of the characters’ worlds (except not actually there bc that would affect their world sooo…like you could mix all your favorite WIP plot elements even if they’re not in the same area or time like you could just crunch the action and the setting! (in that case I wanna wait to enter my character’s world until he’s more firmly established and comfortable with everybody so then we can see more of his pre-trauma identity cos that would give it more oomph. Maybe we should wait till all the characters are firmly established?(in that case what if they enter an underground creepy garden with a waterfall and weird fruit that may or may not be poisonous/enchanted (there is a mild possibility I’m using too many parenthesis here:P ))))
