First of all, my apologies. I thought it was Tuesday.
Second of all, it’s time for the next installment of Language of Worlds, a bi-monthly linkup tailored for Christian speculative fiction writers.
I’ll be continuing with Brass Talan from my Bad Boy WIP. For fun though, I’m going to include Tamille’s answers as well.
Now for the questions.
What does your character fear the most?
Brass says he’s not afraid of anything. He’s also an impulsive liar. He most fears being discovered. He has a secret in his past that he guards like a maniac.
Tamille is afraid normal human things, but she’s mostly scared of being trapped in a life where she’s not able to be herself.
How would they handle it if they were to face their fear?
Not well. He’ll have to face it sooner or later. I imagine it won’t be pretty.
Tamille would fret and worry about upsetting her family, and then she would stand up for herself and do what she knew was right.
Do they want to get married? Why or why not?
Oh heavens no. No, no, no. Marriage would require feelings, and feelings means admitting he’s human, and Brass would never do that.
This is tricky, because Tamille is actually engaged to be married to the Prince of Ellillian. She does want to marry someday, but not him.
What is their love language (i.e. words of affirmation, physical touch, gifts, quality time, acts of service)?
Do sarcasm and anger count as a love language? Cuz that’s what he’s got. I think though, that his would be acts of service.
Tamille’s is a mix physical touch and words of affirmation.
On a scale from 1 (messy) to 5 (organized), how do they rate?
Tamille is a 5.
Brass is....he’s a five in his own mind. He knows where everything is and he’s very meticulous in his plans. But to anyone else looking, he’s definitely a 1.
How do they feel about debates/disagreements?
Both of them are more than game to engage in a heated debate. Which is good, because they have a lot of them.
What do they bring to a battle (figurative or literal)?
Brass brings his killer wit and an arsenal of discreet weapons and poisons.
Tamille brings the voice of reason, and admirable stubbornness.
What's their favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
Tamille likes fruit pastries, but they’re hard to come by in The Spills.
Brass doesn’t usually eat breakfast.
How do they treat themself after a long day?
Normally Tamille would want some sweets and a hot bath, but now she’s happy if she can settle down in a real bed.
Brass doesn’t know how to relax so I doubt he’d do anything special.
What do you most want readers to glean from this story?
I want them to not want to put it down, fall in love with the characters, and ultimately see the deeper story of their redemption and growth.
