Beautiful People August 2014: Gwennie

Welcome back, Beautiful People! This is one of the first times I've actually used the current, and not an archived, question list.

Without further ado

1) What does your character regret most in their life?
I don't know. Most of the bad things that have happened to her were not her fault. Probably a careless word or deed.

2) What is your character's happiest memory? Most sorrowful memory?
Happiest probably several years ago when she and Arthur were young and carefree, before her father lost his money. Most sorrowful memory hasn't happened yet – her mother dying. Before that it was probably when she heard that Arthur was getting married.

3) What majorly gets on your character's nerves?
People who complain, who are lazy, or who are condescending.

4) Do they act differently when they're around people as opposed to being alone? If so, how?
No, not really. Although she can hide her feelings, she's more likely to be bluntly herself.

5) What are their beliefs and superstitions? (Examples: their religion or lack of one, conspiracy theories, throwing salt, fear of black cats.)
She is a nominal Christian, but I'm not sure if she really knows God. I think she probably will by the end of the book, though.

6) What are their catchphrases, or things they say frequently?
Hmm, I'm not real sure what her catchphrases are. One would be "Really?" She can put all sorts of different stresses into it, from a polite, "Really?" when she doesn't care what you're talking about, to a sarcastic, "Really?" with an eye roll.

7) Would they be more prone to facing fears or running from them?
Facing them. She is more afraid for those she loves than for herself; with her mother sick and her father gone a lot, she is the strong one right now and knows she must be. She is more afraid of fear itself, you might say.

8) Do they have a good self image?
I think so. Sometimes, though, when around Arthur she is… shy? awkward? because she is very aware of her low status.

9) Do they turn to people when they're upset, or do they isolate themselves?
She isolates herself. She is very independent.

10) If they were standing next to you would it make you laugh or cry?
After I got over the shock of seeing a fictional character in flesh and blood, I'd be more likely to cry because I know the diabolical thing that's going to happen to her soon.

  1. This has explained Gwennie a lot for me.


Spill your thoughts. Observe common courtesy. You'll make me happy.
