Character Studies | August 2017

by Kellyn Roth |
August 30, 2017

CSAugust2017Hello ladies and gents! Guess what? Character Studies is back!
I am so excited! Morgan’s blog, Studies in Character, is the best ever, and doing her character interviews always helps me figure out something about a character.
Basically, Morgan’s been super busy and gone since the New Year (and hasn’t done Character Studies since October 2016), but now she’s back (at least temporarily).
This month’s character interview (which I’m doing late, but to be fair, it was posted late) is about vacations. Click here to find the questions and do it yourself!

This month, there are just ten questions, so this post will be a little shorter, but, as you probably know, I’m kind of running late. I’m doing this post instead of the other one I had planned for today (Dares) because it’s easier.
The character I’m interviewing today is Steven Parker of Ivy Introspective. Though I’ve already finished with him as a character, I still want to write a little more about him. And this will sooth my compulsions so I don’t have to write a short story or something.

The Interview

  • If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I’ve already gone everywhere in the world.
The Author: Steven.
It’s true. I’ve nowhere else to go. However, I’d like to return to India … or maybe Brazil. Or California. I loved California.

  • You found a time machine. Past or future?

Future. The past has already happened. Where’s the fun in that?

  • Would you visit your author’s world?

I don’t think so, although I love an adventure. She might make me do even more hateful things.
The Author: No, I wouldn’t! I’d just let you chill and see all the different things here.
Oh. Well, I suppose, if that’s to be considered a promise, I would go.

  • You just won a free week on a cruise. Describe how the week plays out.

I probably spend the week with friends or making friends, depending on whether or not I have friends with me to begin with. Or if I like those friends.
The Author: You’d spend the whole cruise partying and trying to convince the captain to let you go shark-hunting or something like that.
Oh, shush.

  • You just won a free ticket to a concert. Who’s playing?

No one. I hate music.
The Author: You’re incorrigible.

  • If/when you go on vacation, who would you take with you?

I’d rather go by myself and pick up friends along the way.

  • What would ruin a vacation for you?

Not having an adventure. I don’t like to relax. I like to live.

  • Do you get homesick?

The Author: But only because you don’t have a home.
Yes, I do! I … I can go to Pearlbelle whenever I want. And … I have a place at Philip’s townhouse, too.

  • At the beach, are you in the water getting pummeled by waves or in the sand making sandcastles?

I’m not at a beach. Why would I go to the beach? Jungles are better.

  • Bonus: Cupcakes or brownies?

The Author: Cupcakes are basically miniature cakes – but as in wedding cake, not tea cake – and brownies are chocolate cakes. With no frosting. I don’t know how to explain this to you.
Very well. I don’t prefer wedding cake, so I’ll have the chocolate cake with no frosting.

And there you have it! I just kind of answered the questions for this one rather quickly and haphazardly, but, as I said before, I’m behind, so this is a short filler post.
However, I do hope you enjoyed Steven Parker and his wildly adventurous, haphazard spirit.

      And has no taste.
      And the music of his time was more, y’know, symphonies and such, so I guess he’s kind of like, “Well, this is dull …” And I say that liking classical music. 😉

          1. 🙂 It’d be funny though. (Now i want to write a Victorian guy’s reaction to rock). I can imagine him either loving it, or giving you a really weird look and saying, “This is not music. This is simply a conglomeration of instruments banging together.” lol
