All I Want For Christmas...

Sarah Belliston's 12 days of Christmas Giveaway!!!

Okay, she asked us to share what our characters would want for Christmas.  I decided to gather a few of mine together to ask them.  Introducing Jonathan, Tamara, and Trevor  :)

Me: So, Jonathan.  What do you want for Christmas this year?

J: Well, I'd really like to find out where my parents are.

Me:  (shifts uncomfortably)  Um, what else?

J:  I guess if you're lookin' for an answer that doesn't make anyone all uncomfortable and crap, I could use a good pair of running shoes.  (smirks at Tamara who rolls her eyes.)

Me:  What about you Tamara?  Anything you want?

T:  (chews the inside of her lip as she lights a fire in her palm.)  Nothing.

Me:  You can't think of anything?  Nothing that could make your life easier?

T:  (glares at me.)  No.

Me:  Okay...well, that leaves you Trevor.

Tr:  (leans forward, eyes light up as his lips spread in a wide smile.)  Metal Gear Solid Rising.  Ah, man.  I want to get my hands on that game so bad!

Me:  Do you think your wife will get it for you?

Tr:  (laughs) I guess if I'm on my best behavior, like no more PMS jokes and pinchin' her butt in public, yeah...maybe.

J:  (nudges Trevor in the shoulder)  You'll never make it.  (shakes head and laughs)

T:  I agree.  You're better off buying it yourself.

Tr:  Or you guys could get it for me.  Now you don't have to fret over what to buy me!

Me:  Before we wrap up, Tamara, at the risk of getting fireballs thrown at me, are you sure there's nothing you want?

T:  (sighs and gives Jonathan a tentative stare)  No.  I already have everything I want.

Me:  Thanks everyone!  And thanks Sarah for such an awesome giveaway!!!!

There's still a little bit of time to join in if you want.  Click HERE if you're interested.  :)

Haha. As one of your CPs, this should totally go in your manuscript. It's perfect. Displays their personalities spot on :)

Crystal Licata said...

Ha Ha! This cracked me up! Very creative. Now I might have to ask my characters what they want for Christmas. :)

Jenna Cooper said...

This was so much fun! I could really tell the personalities that your characters have.

Ashley Nixon said...

ahaha!! I love that you do this!! I interview my characters all the time. Lol. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! :)

Donna K. Weaver said...

What a fun thing to do. I listened to a recent writer interview and she said that during her characterizations she like to be sure the list each character's most important item as that will tell a lot about him/her.

Cassie Mae said...

Wow, you guys are fast!

Kelley: Thanks so much! I'm trying to think of a good place to put it in there, lol.

Crystal: Oh do it! I'd love to read it :)

Jenna: Thank you! I had a lot of fun writing it, and I've spent A LOT of time with these guys, lol.

Ashley: I love interviewing my characters! I haven't done it with these particular ones, so this was a lot of fun!

Cassie Mae said...

Donna: Oh, that sounds like a good idea. I'm totally gonna do that!

Melodie Wright said...

Funny! Your characters totally come alive in that exchange - great job.

David P. King said...

I seem to have totally not see this blogfest. Or if I have, I can't remember. But this post was awesome! I could do with a character interview.

Good timing, thought. I just started a blog hop today. :)

Angela Cothran said...

So fun :) Did you do these pictures?

Cassie Mae said...

Melodie: Thanks! :)

David: Lol, I almost missed it myself. Lots of blogfests going on this December, I'm a bit surprised by it actually.

Angie: No, one of the girls in my neighborhood does anime and character art and she offered to draw a few of my characters. I've got a post with Carolyn and Shawn too on the blog somewhere, lol. Casting Call i think is the title for it. :)

E.R. King said...

Fun giveaway! I want to be married to Tr. He sounds like fun. : )

Jenny S. Morris said...

HELLO. Voice, funny, and GREAT writing. Sorry had to say that. This is awesome and WHO drew those pics for you. I love them.

Sarah B said...

Loved it! Hope you win something good!

Cassie Mae said...

Emily: Ya, I totally based Trevor off my own hubby. Lol.

Jenny: Ah Jenny! You always make me smile :) :) And a girl in my neighborhood drew them. She's awesome right?

Sarah: Thanks! I hope I do too, lol.

Jolene Perry said...

That was even more fun cause I know TWO of your people :D

Hope Roberson said...

Loved that conversatin with you in there too :) Tamara's answers could be the best, she would totally throw a fireball at you! Too bad that heat can't defrost her a little bit for Jonathan's sake :)

Lynn(e) Schmidt said...

This is awesome. Thanks for this :)

Also..for Christmas, can I just throw fireballs?

Cassie Mae said...

Jolene: Thanks! It was a lot of fun :)

Hope: I never thought about the connection with her ability to control fire with her frosty attitude. I love it!

Lynne: I'd like to throw fireballs too. Or ice, like in X-men!
