Hi guys! So, big news. It's time for Beautiful People. Bigger news. I have a character to write about. If you want to check out other peoples' posts, scoot on over to Sky's page.
Now. Let's get down to the good stuff.
Ladies and gentlemen,
How did you come up with this character?
Well, it started with a picture on Pinterest. And to be honest, I can't even find the original picture anymore. But it was of a girl who looked absolutely innocent and completely ornery all at the same time. She was doing something on the floor, painting, or drawing, I can't remember. I do remember that the whole picture just had a chaotic, beautiful feel to it. The girl in the picture was adorable, her hair was a mess, her hands were stained, and the scene around her was turned upside down. And I loved that idea. I brooded on her a long time before I ever created a board for her. Probably for a year or more, I would see a pin and think "That's that girl". So when I did finally decide to start building her, I had to dig through all of my character boards to collect all the pictures and ideas I'd blindly accumulated for her.
Have they ever been starving? Why? And what did they eat to break the fast?
If you ask Piper, she is always starving. She's dramatic like that. I wouldn't say she's ever actually been starving to the point of danger, but there has been more than one occasion she has gotten into such a mood and become so captivated by one thing or another that she pours all of herself into that subject and forgets to eat. Usually when she pulls out of that state she needs to get her hands on ginger snap cookies.
Do they have a talent or skill that they’re proud of?
Piper is compulsive, and a perfectionist, so she has lots of talents. Something will catch her fancy and she will pursue it until she's mastered it, then probably get bored and let it go by the wayside. Two things that she hasn't got bored with yet though are playing the violin, and painting/drawing.
List 3 things that would make them lose their temper.
Depends on the day. Some days she's incredibly laid back and probably wouldn't be at all upset if someone drove a bus through the side of her house. (It would mean she finally had an excuse to put in that fireplace she always wanted) Other days though, the sound of people breathing could make her want to drive a bus into the side of their house. (Which is why bus driving and acquiring a CDL license has never been a priority for her) But, typically three things that would bother her would be people pitying her for having hyperthymesia. (Here is a page that details what that's all about if you want to delve deeper into her head) Parents who don't take good care of their kids really torque her off. And boring things. If she has to sit through something pointless, she's going to be pretty unhappy.
What is their favorite type of weather? Least favorite?
All of them! She likes walking in the sun, splashing around while it rains, catching snowflakes on her eyelashes. She even likes bad weather to a certain extent. Wind, hail, lightning. But only if she's safe inside. Her least favorite is probably no weather at all. Those days where its too cold to swim, but too hot to wear a sweater. The air is still and nothing much is happening at all.
What is their Hogwarts house and/or MBTI personality?
Well, I went and took the tests real quick using her answers and her MBTI result was Debater
(ENTP-T), with the T being for Turbulent in the Identity category. Her Hogwarts house is Slytherin apparently, which really doesn't make much sense to me. I'll have to investigate further.
Slytherins are very determined and ambitious. They tend to have a clear vision of the future, and are very meticulous and directed when working towards their goals. You are a strong leader, because you possess the ability to stay firm in times of crisis and power through. Although you usually work best individually, remember the importance of close friendships to help you up when you're down!
Are they more likely to worry about present problems, or freak out about the unknown future?
Present problems, definitely. Piper is a 100% live in the now type person. She doesn't think about tomorrow until she wakes up in it.
What is their favorite thing to drink?
It goes in swings. Tea and coffee have both stuck around consistently, but hot chocolate, milk, ginger ale, kombucha, and orange juice have each taken their turns as well.
What is their favorite color? Least favorite?
She's kind of a pink person, or any shade that remotely resembles pink. Hot pink, baby pink, orange, yellow. Anything in that half of the color wheel. Least favorite? Green. She detests it. Green is a horrible color. What is a book that changed their life?
She's a sponge.
