Interview with a Character: Jayden Green

For Iwaku Challenge, Interview with a Character #4.

[I]What’s your choice of drink?[/I]
The woman dressed in an impeccable grey suit regarded the interviewer with an amused expression. Her nails tapped gently on the bar. “I like a good beer. But if you’re thinking about buying me a drink, there’s no need. I own the place.”

[I]What’s your ideal romance? *wriggles brows*[/I]
This made her laugh out right. “Does foreplay count? I don’t really DO romance. That whole flowers, dates, and other crap is pretty much just a bunch of useless fluff. Everyone knows it’s the sex people really want, so why not skip to the good part?”

[I]So, level with me. You ever done anything… naughty?[/I]
She cast an innocent expression, which really just made her look devious instead. “That depends on your definition of ‘naughty’. Sexy naughty? Murder naughty? Thieving naughty? I’ve done a lot of things I never thought I would, some I am not proud of. Some I would be happy to do again in a heartbeat. Don’t ask such vague questions.”

[I]Is there anyone you just hate or get annoyed by? You ever ‘teach them a lesson?'[/I]
That innocent look faded in to a slow cheshire cat smirk as she leaned forward in her seat. “Yes, yes, and yes. No one crosses me without consequences.”

[I]What’s an achievement of yours? Somethin’ awesome or badass you’ve done.[/I]
“Everything I do is badass.” Even after the statement, though, she was leaning back in her seat again and giving the question more serious thought. “I had my daughter. I’ve done a lot of things that someone might call badass, but having her and not fucking it all up feels like the biggest achievement I could ever make. Nothing can top that.”

[I]Okay, say you won a lottery. I’m talking, like, a butt load of money! What do you do with it?[/I]
“Invest. My family will live for quite a long time, I want to make sure we have money to live several lifetimes.”

[I]So, you’re trapped on a desert island or in a cave or something, and you can only have one person and one object with you. Who and what do you choose? And don’t say a cellphone or anything else that’ll help you escape or I swear I’ll punch you in the freakin’ face.[/I]
“How about I punch YOU in the face, asshole, if you talk to me like that again?” She almost looked ready to do it right then. “I would have Cupio. I don’t need anything else.”

Interview with a Character: Eleri Xerxes

For Iwaku Challenge, Interview with a Character #4.

[I]What’s your choice of drink?[/I]
Eleri glances around in confusion before pointing at herself. “Who me? You’re not a bartender… Hrm. All right then. I’ll bite. Get me a brandy on ice.”

[I]What’s your ideal romance? *wriggles brows*[/I]
There was a twitch to the corner of her mouth. “I don’t have time for romance. I have responsibilities. Saving the world and all the jazz. But, I kinda like the whole idea of candlelight dinners and walks in the moonlight. Y’know, that normal people stuff.”

[I]So, level with me. You ever done anything… naughty?[/I]
“That’s none of your goddamned business.”

[I]Is there anyone you just hate or get annoyed by? You ever ‘teach them a lesson?'[/I]
Her eyebrow quirked up and she rolled her eyes. “Nice segue. Yeah, as a matter of fact there are a lot of people I hate and a lot of things I get annoyed by. Weirdos in bars, for example. Keep on asking these questions and we’ll if I start teaching some lessons.”

[I]What’s an achievement of yours? Somethin’ awesome or badass you’ve done.[/I]
A dark expression fell over her face as she turned away in her seat to focus on her drink. “I haven’t achieved anything yet. Whether or not I managed to do something ‘badass’ is still up in the air. Lets all hope I’m not a total failure.”

[I]Okay, say you won a lottery. I’m talking, like, a butt load of money! What do you do with it?[/I]
“Obviously you’re drunk.” she muttered with a shrug of her shoulder. “I don’t need any money, I guess I would give it to someone who did.”

[I]So, you’re trapped on a desert island or in a cave or something, and you can only have one person and one object with you. Who and what do you choose? And don’t say a cellphone or anything else that’ll help you escape or I swear I’ll punch you in the freakin’ face.[/I]
Eleri smirked, giving a sly sort of smile. “I’d have with me a Descendant and the Amulet. Because you can sure as hell bet if you have both of those, you won’t be stuck anywhere alone for long.”

Interview with a Character: Leslie Cole

[I]Tell me about yourself.[/I]
My name is Leslie Cole, I just graduated college and started a new job as a desk secretary at a local Magazine. Eventually I’d like to be an Editor. I’m currently hunting for a new apartment in the city, but I’d really prefer living somewhere outside of town in a big house with a nice yard.

[I]What is your preferred genre/type of music and why?[/I]
I don’t think I could pick just one favorite genre of type… I always think I favor one thing, then the next week I am in love with a whole new style or sound. I just love and appreciate music.

[I]Do you cook? What’s your favorite food? (If you don’t eat… traditional foods, then what [/I]do[I] you eat?)[/I]
Cook… experiment… it’s all the same to me. I’m not sure what I do in the kitchen could be considered cooking, but I can definitely promise it comes out edible. I don’t tend to follow recipes. My favorite kind of food would probably be Greek. Serve up anything you can eat with your hands and I’ll love it.

[I]If you had a spirit animal, what would it be? Or, if you actually [/I]have[I] a spirit animal, tell me about it.[/I]
This is a fun question! I had to think about it for a bit. My spirit animal would probably be the snowy white egret or [URL=’http://www.linsdomain.com/totems/pages/heron.htm’]heron[/URL]. Not sure why I’ve always loved them, but they are very beautiful and elegant birds!

[I]If you could go back in time and change anything, would you? (If yes) What would you change?[/I]
Sometimes I wonder and think about things I might change, but in the end I decide not to. All of these events in our lives, good or bad, kinda shape who we are and how we got to the present. I might not always be happy with myself, but I love where my life is going. I wouldn’t want to change that.

[I]Would you say that you have a good relationship with your parents/guardian/creator? (Why or why not?)[/I]
When my mother was alive, she was probably the closest person in my life. It was just me, her, and my step dad for a long time. Uhm, I haven’t seen my step-dad since Mom’s funeral and I’d rather not talk about that. On to the next interviewee!

Interview with a Character: Tessa Thorn

Done for Iwaku Challenge, Interview With a Character.

[I]Please tell me about yourself.[/I]
My name is Tessa Thorn and I am a manager! Specially, a band manager. I’ve recently been fired and I am now starting up my own record label called Calico Productions. I kinda have really bad luck with jobs, up until now. Managing a band seems to be the one thing I am really awesome at. I guess it’s cause I love what I do?

[I]What is a typical day like for you?[/I]
I wake up at six am and I WORK! This usually involves making appointments, getting advertising done, booking venues, buying supplies, designing costumes, and micromanaging everything. Especially my top star, he’s a pain in the ass.

[I]What do you do when you are not doing what you regularly do?[/I]
Uh… uhm. I pretty much always work?

[I]Where do you see yourself in the next 5 to 10 years?[/I]
I’ll be married, living in a nice house with the best record label in history!

[I]Do you have a special someone in your life right now?[/I]
…Surprisingly yes! Somehow my talent became my boyfriend. Which is pretty weird since he was a pain and a bum on my couch. And he’s kinda sorta my accidental husband. But he hasn’t found that one out yet, though. Let’s keep that one off the record now, okay? He is the best thing to ever happen to my life and I kinda want to keep him!

[I]What’s your favorite animal/creature? Why?[/I]
I have recently really started to have an affection for over sized house cats! Especially ones that can eat ex boyfriends.

[I]Tell me about something you’re passionate about and why.[/I]
I am passionate about MUSIC! I love music! It’s probably something that has always been a big part of my life, so when I got involved in the music business it was a dream come true.

[I]If you could go anywhere, where would you go and why?[/I]
I think I want to go to Venice. Touring the city streets in a boat seems really cool.

[I]What do you think about the afterlife? Do believe in it, and the existence of the soul?[/I]
As long as I don’t end up in hell with my Ex-Bosses, I think I’ll be okay!

[I]Is there something you desire more than anything?[/I]
I really, really want D to make me a piece of baklava right about now. In fact, if you’ll excuse me, I think my boyfriend owes me dessert!
