Okay, I just got this idea for a fun and thought provoking (maybe that's over shooting it, but don't argue with me) game we can play.

How Well Do You Know Your MC?

Here's how it works. Ill post a random question--anything from "What's your MC's favorite color?" to "How old was your MC when they had the birds and bees talk with Mommy and Daddy?"--and the next person to post will answer and ask another question.

Please post our MC's name before the answer, as in the following example:

What's your MC's favorite color?

Bianca: Green

What's Your MC's pets name?

Casey: She has no pets.


Get it? Got it? Good!

First Question!!!!

Who is (or would be for you fantasy writers) your MC's celebrity crush?

Bianca: She'd roll her eyes, call him a few fall names, and maybe even throw a drink at him, as she does to dirty young men.

Who was (or will be) your MC's first kiss?

Bianca: About ten seconds, but only if she's really moving. Who cares what she looks like, right? She'll still e the ugly one. (Her viewpoint, not mine.)

How did your MC find out where babies come from?

Cameron: School of course. Uncle Charlie and Mom obviously couldn't spare the time to tell him

Bianca: She isn't involved in any. The closest she gets is watching her best friend and the rest of the Skinny Squad (cheerleaders) practice when her friend needs a ride home.

What is your MC's favorite band (or would be)?

Kyle: Either his psychotic dad who wants to kill all his friends or going crazy, which he thinks will happen to him.

Write depressing, and quite horrible, poetry. Or chill. She's quite good at zoning out for hours to take her mind off things. She's also a ponderer who thinks about her situation constantly.

Question:
If someone accidentally tripped your MC, what would your MC do to them/do about it?

He'd probably yell at them, and if they yelled back, he'd probably put them in an armlock.

What's your MC look for in a date?

Mailee: One of two things, depending on who they are and what else is going on. She'd either completely freak out and run away apologizing, or try to stick around long enough to figure out what they were thinking about

Has your MC ever had a pet?

In Grace's own words:
My childhood softness had long since thawed into an skinny awkwardness, as if my fourteen-year-old self had been nailed together from colt legs and collarbones. My hair was the yellowy tan of second-hand oak furniture. I french-braided it every morning to ward off the wind, but pieces always broke free and whipped my face like Medusa coils.

What animal is your MC most like and why?

How does your MC feel about gun control?

He'd be indifferent. He's kind of self-absorbed and doesn't really care much about laws or politics.

What would your MC do when confronted with the threat of death?

Well, considering how well Taxes knows his brother, he's never considered Death as much of a threat.

What sort of disturbing things grace your MC's nightmares?

Morgan: She used to dream of a modelling career, but cancer has left her looking emancipated. 'Sides, chemo made all her hair fall out.

In your character's own opinion, what is their best trait?

Taxes: Expediency. At least, he tries very, very hard.

If your main character had to make a gift for a friend's birthday and couldn't buy it, what would they make?

Which word does your character use more often, 'you' or 'I?'
