    Oh noooo!!! QATAR WHAT DID YOU DO!?!?!

    Counterfeiter. :DDD

     

    He usually seems pretty nice until he kicks into villain mode for any reason,

    So he’s a fun person to write, then!

    It’s not my favorite by Dickens but it was cool and the characters were really interesting! What’s your favorite thing about it?

    Ooh, what is your favorite by Dickens? Do tell! My favorite part was Sydney Carton. And I also really loved how he portrayed both sides of the French Revolution. You sympathized with the peasants but hated their deeds, and despised the aristocracy, but couldn’t help feeling a little sorry for them, too. Did you like Sydney? I’m always anxious to hear others’ opinions of that character.

    He fell in love first but he also saw that it would never work out so he’s just been suffering in silence about it

    🙁 poor fellow. I hope they get together in the end. That does sound fascinating to write, and very fun. These two think they’re being so opaque, and everybody else is just like “Eh, they’re in love.” XD

    Pretty soon I get to write a triangle: Quin loves Anika, but she’s being hard to catch, and Anika’s friend Natalya is hopelessly in love with Quin, but knows there’s no chance for her, so she’s being a terrible jerk to Quin.

    Hmmm…very interesting, the gigantic quotes at the top of the page. I can’t say I don’t like it, though.  Is that what happens when you play around with quoting someone, lol.

    Oh, good. I thought it was murder. Oh, wait, wrong reaction. *clears throat* *shocked gasp* Qatar, how could you??

    So he’s a fun person to write, then!

    Extremely!! Writing him is an excercise in writing subtext since he seldom actually comes out with anything villianous obviously.

    Yeah! It was a while since I read it but I remember him as really interesting!

    Absolutely Great Expecations! I loved that book! The plot, the characters, the writing, I loved all of it! (Except maybe all the tangents XD)

    poor fellow. I hope they get together in the end. That does sound fascinating to write, and very fun. These two think they’re being so opaque, and everybody else is just like “Eh, they’re in love.” XD

    Exactly XD Anyone takes one look and goes “When’s the wedding” XD

    Oohh, that’s delightfully complicated!! I’d love to see how that turns out!

    Oh dear, no! Qatar wouldn’t do that. It does get me thinking though…

    Absolutely Great Expecations! I loved that book! The plot, the characters, the writing, I loved all of it! (Except maybe all the tangents XD)

    That’s what I would have guessed! I want to read that one soon, but I have to work through some other books, and I thought I’d better give Dickens a break. Have you read Jane Eyre or The Scarlet Letter?

    Oohh, that’s delightfully complicated!! I’d love to see how that turns out!

    Ha! It oughta be good! Do you have any triangles in your writings?

    Oh dear, no! Qatar wouldn’t do that. It does get me thinking though…

    I was just thinking because perhaps possibly some of… a friend’s characters might have done that XD

    Ehhh, no and no XD I want to though!

    Ha! It oughta be good! Do you have any triangles in your writings?

    Actually not really. Liorah is briefly attracted to another character and Ferran internally dies but that’s very brief and that’s before she likes Ferran.

    And then there’s the absolute chaos that is Aydin’s relationship with Chantara. Like… it’s not healthy, it really isn’t. It’s dramatic though XD

    lol. I couldn’t possibly know who you mean, lol. Seriously, though. I was having trouble with the first quarter of my WIP, and something you said got me thinking, and I might have a change coming (and a huge rewrite, but if it’s better, who cares?)

     

    Ehhh, no and no XD I want to though!

    Do! They’re good. 🙂

    Poor Farran…that sounds marvelous! How long has he liked Liorah?

    Oof…Aydin in a relationship with anyone sounds a little rough at the moment…might be good for him in the long run.

    How many book(s) have you written?
