Samantha: Good lord no. It'd probably be a failure anyway, like that time I tried wearing gaucho pants. Yea, never making that mistake again. The guys on the football still call me sloucho groucho.

What did your MC Twitter five minutes ago?

Chloe: I am very anti-technology. So, yeah. I don't even have a cell phone.

In middle school, was your MC the one who got all the candygrams and flowers from secret admirers, or did they have to send roses to themselves?

Is your MC a straight-A student?

Chloe: New York and LA, 'cause that's where it all is, babe. But, ew, no, not the South Bronx. Or South Central. I've suffered through enough poverty to last me a lifetime.

Is your MC going to get married to their current love interest?

Kaksonen: Its a matter of politics that I get married to someone with political leverage, so no.


Has your MC killed anyone?

Kaksonen: ...

Do non-human beings count? If so...

Adrian: Yes, to survive one must kill.

Has your MC ever saved someones life?

Chloe: No, not really. Unless you count saving Austin from himself.

What color shirt is your MC wearing when their Life-Altering Experience happens?

Adrian: Sky blue. He tends to wear darker colors now, it seems weird to dress in bright and cheerful colors when you're slowly dieing inside.

What is your MC's favorite food dish?

Chloe: It has to be penne. Italian food is awesome.

Name a song--any song--that can describe your MC or the situation he/she's in, perfectly.

Stephanie: Womanizer (situation, unfortunately for me).


If your MC had to choose between China and Mexico, which would he/she pick? Food wise. (this is a matter of the gravest importance, of course).

White Rose: China of course! She loves chinese food.

Does you MC have a person give advice and words of wisdom that he/she doesn't understand until years later?

For about three years, my MC didn't understand a hint the computer in his head dropped about his abilities. (Not sure if the computer counts as a person, but... it was kind of advice)

What would your MC do if someone annoyed them so much it was their deepest desire to smack the snot out of him?

Agnieszka: Much as I'd like to say I'd do just that, truth is I probably wouldn't. I don't handle confrontations well. People say I come over as super-confident but I'm not really.

If your MC could change one aspect of his/her body or appearance, what would it be?

Adrian: The tattoos, life would be so much easier without them.

What does you're MC secretly fear? Something that makes them embarrassed to admit.

Bianca: Clowns, but everyone is afraid of them so I don't know why I keep it a secret.

If your MC could change the world, what would he/she change?

Can your MC dance?

Connor: Would jumping up and down wildly count? If not, then hell no. He can't dance.

What song would your MC choose to sing if they did karaoke?

Agnieszka: Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła, or the Polish National Anthem. Just to show off. The chances of that appearing on a karaoke machine are zero. Otherwise I do a pretty mean "From a Distance".

What's your MC's favourite film?

I Am Legend, but only because it was the one movie he watched with his friends after he escaped the antagonists, but before he attempted suicide and was recaptured.

If your MC could (or does) have one superpower, what would it be (or what is it)?

Sophur: The ability to shoot laser-beams-of-doom through her eyes. She wishes she were that cool.

Tape or glue?

Heh, I don’t think I’ve ever written a character with enough patience to wait for glue to dry. On the other hand, Milo’s sort of clumsy and would have a hard time preventing tape from sticking to itself. He’d probably ask a servant to take care of it (and then pout when he realized there weren’t any servants around anymore).

What’s one thing your character does in private that he or she would be embarrassed to have others find out about (i.e., singing in the shower)?

Sophur: Plot to destroy the rebels that she accidentally sort of joined.

If your character has to pee really badly and the line for the bathroom is a mile long, what do they do?
