I'm participating in Beautiful People again this month. Beautiful People is a link up hosted by Cait @Paperfury and Sky @ Further up and Further in that helps us get to know our characters and books better. I've certainly been finding it helpful.
This month I am taking a break from Samuel James and instead doing a character from a new story that I am coming up with and considering doing for Nanowrimo. Now this story idea has had a strange development really I should tell you all about it sometime. It's a modern/medieval fantasy that I'm really excited about. It's the first story I have begun to use Scrivener for as well and I loved that aspect of it too.
So his name is Prince James. I think he should have a last name too but I'm not sure what it is yet.
How did you come up with this character?
How did I come up with this character? Well. If I'm honest this story started as a medieval fantasy and somehow turned to a modern place setting of the same country and I suddenly found myself in this guys head. I'm really not totally sure how it happened. #lost
Have they ever been starving? Why? And what did they eat to break the fast?
Well yes and no. Yes, I think there was one time Prince James is very much starved but he was really too drugged up with a particularly type of drug to really notice. He was kidnapped and it was quite complicated. James would also consider the many times when he was younger and was very sick starved but he did survive.
Do they have a talent or skill they are proud of?
Prince James is quite proud of the fact that he knows swordplay. In his day and age it is quite an unusual skill to have especially for a member of the royal family. He finds it quite relaxing and he was strangely drawn to learning it.
List three things that would make them lose their temper.
It's not really that often he finds himself particularly angry. As a Prince he has had to learn to try and be himself.
Almost forgot to actually answer the question. He hates it when others are being treated unfairly and believes all should have equality. Reading that favourite history book try and not to disturb him, it can cause him to bite back unintentionally (with words of course ;) If you hurt his family especially his little sister watch out. You never know what will happen. A strange calm when he is that mad.
What is their favourite type of weather? Least Favourite?
Prince James loves a sunny day because he loves to imagine that he is in the ancient times and able to practice swordplay with the the people back then.
What is their Hogwarts house and/ or MBTI personality?
So I don't really know that much about Harry Potter and can't really say which one he is in. And Prince James is ISFJ.
Are they more likely to worry about present problems, or freak out about the future?
He is more likely to worry about present problems as a prince. Even though he is technically second in line he has had to deal with many things due the rest of the royal family being inconveniently away. The future he worries about from time to times that his older brother will be kept at exile forever. James has never wanted to be king.
What is their favourite thing to drink?
Cinnamon Hot Chocolate. After a hard days work nothing beats a Cinnamon Hot Chocolate. To be honest that sound quite nice maybe I should try it sometime. Since I came up with it on the spot just then.
What is their favourite colour? Least favourite?Pale blue. He loves looking up at the sky on a good day weather wise and seeing the pale blue sky with some clouds scattered about. When he was little his Father's best friend went to work painting it on his bedroom room overflowing to the top part of his bedroom walls. Let's just say that he found it comforting and that he definitely loved his father's best friend even better after this. I don't know if he has a least favourite colour yet though.
What is a book that changed their life?
History. Prince James loved reading into history when he was younger but he especially enjoyed. The Three Princes by Zoltan which was about three princes who varied in age but were close and went through some strange difficulties. James always felt more connected to them somehow.
