I’ve been struggling a bit with my current WIP, Sacrificing Cowboy J, so when I saw this on The Story Sponge I knew I had to do it!
- Thank the lovely blogger who tagged you. Story Sponge tagged everyone with charas that fit the prompts, so yay.
- Include a link to the tag creator’s page Phoebe
- Use your own Original Characters (OC’s); don’t use a friend’s characters or characters from your favorite fandom. They can be from any project, so long as you created them. For more fun, try to use as many different characters as possible.
- Tag at least five lovely blogger friends to play along.
Most likely to be a poet
I’m going with an oldie but goodie: Jimlin from Before The Mountain Falls. Jimlin is a bit of a runty dwarf that prefers academics to adventuring- not that he’ll turn a meaningful trip down. He’s assistant librarian in the dusty stacks that hold ancient and useful documents that only he bothers to look for. He’s an insecure romantic that definitely wrote some poems about Lildrey at some point.
Most Likely to Dance in the Rain
Lildrey! Lildrey, an elf raised by dwarves that tends to act on impulse- almost dying in some instances. When the mood strikes her, she’ll dance. She’ll run. She’ll jump off a cliff. Literally. She also grows a varied garden- started because she couldn’t eat the meat of the dwarves and expanded once she got accidicted to them.
Most likely to look good in a kilt
Jimlin’s older brother Ark is your more typical, if mature, dwarf. He’s destined to be elected king in the future, possibly while wearing a kilt. He’s a master of firesong, able to tap into the dwarvish collective’s moods and turn it into fire.
Most likely to get punched in the face
Now I can move on to Sacrificing! Cowboy J is the only heterosexual in a town full of queers. He’s outspoken, loud, and confident. Just your typical allocishet white boy. He’s a Kinesiology major (PE teaching) that loves to run into everyone’s ire.
Most likely to drop everything and become a sheep-herder
I feel like quite a few of my characters that aren’t duty-bound would do this. The Human in Falling Angel/Rising Demon would find sheep-herding convient. They need to get away so they can rest their mind.
Most likely to be found in the library
Gary from Sacrificing! Gary is a museum collector, and one of the oldest people in the village. He’s a total nerd that uses an extensive library to back up his artefacts’ legitimacy.
Most likely to sleep through an earthquake
Probably QP. They savour the luxuries of life, including, but not limited to, dancing and sleeping. They wear silk PJs and drown out any outside inconveniences with piano melodies.
Most likely to steal food from other people’s plates
Ooh. I’ve already said QP, but I’ll say it again: QP will inconvenience others, as long as it doesn’t inconvenience themself.
Most likely to cheat on a test
Most likely Cowboy J- although I don’t think he does it regularly, he has done it once or twice when there’s a big run coming up.
Most likely to say “Oops” after setting something on fire
Can I use CJ a third time… Pax from Falling Angel/Rising Demon. Pax is your typical duty-bound angel until they find out one of their charges is missing a soul. Pax and Krampus, their demon counterpart, must work together to act as moral guides while the soul sets in.
Most likely to open an orphanage
I mean, Ark will open one if one needs to be open within the mountain, but it’s not a thing any of my characters are dedicated to.
Most likely to run off with the circus
Pireto would do it if he got the chance. Teaching high school spanish is a lot like running a circus. He’d be a tired clown, doing low level pranks with the most funnily exhausted face.
Most likely to survive the zombie apocalypse
I don’t think anyone has a decent chance, except for Uncle Tom. Do you remember CAM from season 3 of Sherlock? He’s Uncle Tom. Rich, has a mansion in a frozen wasteland, no one likes him. But he’ll survive anyway.
Most likely to fake their own death
She didn’t set out to do it, but Lildrey got into a situation where a lot of people thought she was dead.
Most likely to die and haunt their friends
Probably Allan! She’s a detective that loves investigating murders, so if she dies and someone dies in mysterious circumstances, she’s coming back.
