    Wow. That was really good. That part where Colma says he doesn’t have to only be there for others, I felt that.

    Hehe, he’d gonna crack every corny “dying” joke in existence every opportunity he gets XD

    He froze when she squeezed him. People didn’t really do that, did they? Ehud relaxed a little, enough he could bre…[Read more]

  • The was a crash as an axe clattered off the roof. Half-cringing, Ehud peeked back, wondering who was about to murder who now. Oh Ax Girl! She was almost laughing with an air of freedom, then caught everyone’s looks and smiled a little. Ehud’s jaw dropped and he didn’t even try to pretend he wasn’t staring.
    “So, you new people are also vict…[Read more]

  • It’s my favorite color! Thanks! I tend to get very poetically dramatic when I’m setting a tone and I’m glad it’s not too melodramatic this time.
    What’s your favorite color?

    Ah google is soo good! Thanks a bunch!

    Thank you, it’s one of my only real-life talents. I’m also an expert at accidentally walking into walls and misplacin…[Read more]

    “Don’t call me cute.” The talking fox glared at him and he hadn’t even known that was possible. It took him five seconds to make the fox hate him…that might be a new record. There were so many people around here watching him with their own good or bad intentions. She limped after Erin after announcing her intention to join with her. The poor…[Read more]

    Nothing…
    Isn’t colorless white or pitch black.
    It doesn’t exist so you’re out and back again and there’s nothing in between.

    The first thing he was aware of was something firm underneath him. The second thing was that the sky was a little cloudy and the sun was in his eyes. The third was that he was supposed to be dead and this…[Read more]

    Mr. Garner will be prepping his net for another school of glassy flying fish around the skyland. At six-thirty-one he will hear a very distinctive scream and will not be surprised to see a scrawny teen catapult headlong into his ship with a loud Thwank!
    “Ah, Ehud, nice of you to drop by.” At his remark, one hand will shoot up limply as if…[Read more]

    He’s not sure whether he wants to hurt her or not. She seems to be the only one who knows what’s going on. So on some level she must be responsible for this lack of reality. There has to be his real home somewhere. She has to be the one who’s trapped him here. At the very least she has to know how to get him out.
    “This isn’t real, is it? Th…[Read more]

    Red is a crisp, burning color. One of the only colors that can be bright and showy while being dark and somewhat forbidding. Right now it’s the only thing he can see in this room, pooling under Rosario.
    This isn’t real.
    Just a second ago she was… You can’t die that fast can you? It only took a second and he can’t rewind th…[Read more]

    Today…
    Landed in a crazy homicidal castle, nearly got ate by a dinosaur, pulled a gun on my best friend who suddenly hates me…
    Could be worse…oh wait…
    Ehud sure feels that whole “life flashing before your eyes” thing right now. But this isn’t happening this can’t be real. His hands won’t stop shaking and he needs to hold the gun stra…[Read more]

  • @mischievous-thwapling @wingiby-iggiby
    Thank you guys so much it really means a lot to me that you like Ehud’s fear and thanks for answering my questions y’all are great! (I don’t know what I’m doing…)
    I can’t wait to see more of Ahab’s and Colma’s fears! You can catch so much more depth when you get into the darker emotions. Like…[Read more]

  • There’s something so unnatural about this place. Her kaleidoscope eyes just sum the wild mask over reality. And it still feels too real. Ehud can’t breathe his chest is so tight.
    ‘Things happen, sweety, that’s how life goes.’
    Great gasps of wind gush around the sky-city constantly with a seashore breeze and there isn’t any smell of gr…[Read more]

  • @wingiby-iggiby
    Man, Ahab’s worst fear is really interesting. I wanna know more about Saulus and the girl who died. So much suspense! You’re right it’s soo cool to see everybody’s character’s in their natural habitat! (even if it’s there worse fear:() You get to see even more of what drives them and makes them them.
    And Colma’s worst fear is s…[Read more]

  • ah yes. The dog.
    When he was a puppy I introduced him to the human ritual of handshakes. He won’t roll over, he won’t lay down and he thinks the command “Sit!” is optional. But he really liked handshakes. If a human does not understand that he wants to shake hands he will paw said human on the leg or any other available body part until said human…[Read more]

  • @wingiby-iggiby
    Ah, excellent question; I have no idea :P…well, I sorta do but it’s gonna sound really weird.
    Ok, so in dictionaries “temporal” is (an adjective but I’m using it as a noun) “1. Related to worldly as opposed to spiritual affairs; secular. 2. Of or relating to time.”
    Basically Ehud is wondering if there’s a poi…[Read more]

  • Oh, well actually my character isn’t even from a novel he’s from a comic series I’m trying to write. So it’s cool with me:)

    I’m so sorry about your great-grandfather, that’s awful.

    @jasmine
    I love how you say Brin wants to pet a human to see how they like it cos our dog does that to me:). It’s also scientific rumor that dogs view us the same way we view them and cats think we’re their kittens and horses sense and act out their handler’s emoti…[Read more]

    AHHHH YOUR CHARACTER HAS PTSD!!! That’s awesome! (Not for Enunwen of course:) The main character of my WIP has C-PTSD and I have researched it so much! It’ll be awesome to compare notes! Did I mention I can’t wait to meet your character?!

    I love your 1st Person narrative!! It really seeps with Ahab’s character and has a great tone!

  • Cathy replied to the topic Character Castle 2.0 in the forum Fantasy Writers 1 month ago

    @millennium
    Hey cool! I like your idea! Ehud has a rather philosophical worst fear so it should be interesting trying to write that into an actually scary format:)
