    Alexis: "Hi" *Smiles*
    Anieli: "..." He doesn't greet them. They greet him.

    How would your MC react if I stole something precious from them?

    Tough one he has reacted in various ways, from trying to commit suicide, to total forgiveness to breaking the neck of the person that did it. Depends which book - his response in current one would be to say 'I forgive you.' His response at seven would be to cry, by fifteen he had a mean right hook.

    What would your MC serve for dinner ?

    "Hmm, how about Chinese take out? Easy. I don't cook. Plus I forget to eat. It isn't something I care to do. I could have Christopher feed me a great recipe. Yes you would. He said no, but he lies. Yes you do," Jeremiah says. He makes chopstick gestures. "I do know how to use them without training wheels."

    How well does your MC clean...either house or self?

    Probably dancing round his bedroom in his pants with his partner. The years his partner is missing he is a bit of a grumpy old git - so with an early night.

    What is your MCs Favourite Outfit ?

    hmm as in a lace collar and nowt else ;)? sounds like my four year old :)

    For first hundred and fifty years of his life his choice was ginger tea. However since his hundred and fiftieth birthday he has been indulging in Port Red a fiery liquid from the fire elemental people - that makes you a bit warm and passionate.

    Where would your MC go on holiday/vacation ?

    She'd stay at home, or go to her boyfriend's house.

    Would your MC risk his/her life to save a person she cares about, or rather save himself/herself?

    The only people my MC cares that much about are already dead, so no.

    What would your MC say his/her biggest fault is?

    She'd love it! But only if it's extra scary...

    What is his/her biggest fear?

    "I'm a native New Yorker, but right now I'm in a...I know Christopher. No I wasn't going to tell them. Geez. Yes, I'm a nomad right now."

    Is it easy for your MC to lie?

    Usually she finds it very easy, but it depends on the person to whom she is lying--and her psychological health at the time.

    What philosophy would you say your character upholds, and would he admit this to others? To himself?

    She lowers her voice and talks steady and uninterrupted. With her head bent slightly down, her eyes peer up at you, yet never stray a millimeter. "Is there anything more important in this life than to avoid suffering?" she says. "What is death next to living in hell?"

    What would your character do if she saw a five-year-old drowning, and she was the only one close enough to save them in time?

    (Great idea with this thread, btw.)

    Nike dropped her pack and burst into a sprint, her leap from the bank clearing over half the distance between her and the drowning child. As she broke through the surface of the lake into its frigid, murky contents she pumped her legs and swung her arms hard. The adrenaline in her system forced her blood to flow to her frantic limbs, despite the cold, and she quickly cut the distance between her and the boy who was only weakly flailing as he began to sank. With a loud grunt she grasped his shirt with numb fingers and hauled him back to the surface, kicking her legs quickly as much to remain afloat as to keep them warm. The child sputtered and cried and continued to wave his arms and legs around in a daze as Nike hauled him back to the muddy edge of the lake. Once they were back on solid ground she jogged back to her discarded pack and found a Mylar blanket, which she opened and wrapped around both of them.
    "Come on, let's get you somewhere warm," she said, soothingly, though she kept her teeth from chattering only by the sheer strength of will.

    How would your MC react if they had just killed someone?

    I have to say, I'm loving this thread!

    Max's clothes were drenched in blood. He didn't really know when to stop, so he kept stabbing him, he had to make sure. He stopped for a moment, and looked at the body. The face wasn't a face anymore. A swarm of emotions hit him. Ranging from regret to satisfaction. If that life didn't end that night, a large amount of innocent ones would of. There stood Max Parker, someone who thought he would never do such a thing, looking down at the lifeless boy he just murdered.

    My MC would need a REALLY GOOD reason to kill somebody, btw.
    PS: Awesome idea!


    What would your character do if he/she finds a note in a high school library book saying:
    I will kill everybody in this library on Junuary 18th.
    (It's the 16th the day your MC finds the note)


    Make it interesting! :D

    Easy one! My MC would shave his head bald, become bad arse and learn to hunt and all sorts of things and make 'Don't tell me what I can't do' a catchphrase.

    Where would your character go if he or she could go anywhere?

    "No place but the past and hear my dad sing our song, with a hug. Something insurance money cannot buy," Jeremiah says. He closes his eyes. A few minutes past and they open wide. "I am not melodramatic. Christopher I would cut your throat out and remove those vocal cords if I could. Blood doesn't scare me. I'm thinking the end of Fight Club is looking very promising for you. I know the ending. God."

    What song would your MC sing for karaoke?

    He wouldn't do Karaoke - but he does have a beautiful singing voice and whistles a lot. Fireflies would probably be his song.

    Does you MC have or want children?

    He has a daughter whom he hasn't met, but will unwittingly meet at the end of the book.

    What kind of boyfriend/girlfriend would your MC make?

    A really good one. He is calm, honest, and good-hearted.

    What's your MC's favorite movie?
