Beautiful People: March 2015


This is very late, but here we go, finally, with Beautiful People March Edition! 

I'm going to be doing Ella, from my story Cinders. (You can find it on the "stories" page of my blog.) It's a modern adaptation of Cinderella.
Here we go! :)


1. What is their secret desire? 
To belong to someone. Not necessarily a boy...maybe, an older sister or a mother.

2. What is the brightest moment they experience during the story? 
Either when she meets Vida, who helps her get to the dance, or when she finds the dress her parents picked out just for her.

3. What are the emotional places your characters are afraid to go to? 
Umm...hmmm....*cough cough* XD

4. Is there a place/city/room they will never go? Why?
Her sisters' bedrooms. Because they won't let her in. :P

5. If they were permanently leaving town, what would they easily throw out? What would they refuse to part with? (Why?) 
She would throw out all the crumby stuff her stepmother bought her after her father died to try to change her and maybe help her fit in a little bit better. Her stepmother isn't all bad, so Ella hasn't wanted to hurt her feelings by chucking them yet.
She would probably refuse to part with her stuffed animals. She LOVES stuffed animals. ;)

6. What do they want? (Consciously and tangibly)? 
Perhaps to have a best friend. Someone to share all her secrets with. Someone who will hug her and comfort her through trials. And to do the same to someone else.

7. On the other hand, what do they need (on the emotional, subconscious level)? 
She needs something to write in. If she can't confide her feelings to anyone, she needs to get them out somehow. She has had her diary since she was 10, and it's about bursting.

8. If they could change one thing about themselves, what would it be? 
She often wishes that she wasn't as shy. That she was more outgoing like her stepsisters so that she could actually make some friends.

9. What is the most humiliating event of their life? 
When she fell off the stage at the school play. That was when she was 5, but she still remembers it vividly. XP

10. What things to they turn to when they need a bit of hope? 
She turns to God. I do not mention this in the story, but her mother and father were both Christian and she is a very strong Christian. She depends on God, and knows that everything will work out as he planned. She that gives her a lot of comfort.

There we are! All done! XD Hope you enjoyed.

  1. Nice! She sounds like a wonderful, well thought through character. Since I am new to this blog of your's, may I have a further explanation of this feature?

    1. Beautiful People is a linkup held by Cait at Paper Fury and Skye at Further Up and Further In. Each month they post questions you can answer for one of you characters of a book or story you are writing.

  2. Oh, I can totally get the 'I did something stupid when I was x age and all these years later it still makes me cringe.'...

    1. Yeah, happens to me all the time. :P

  3. I wish I knew what to say, but all I can think of, is well done! She sounds really well thought out, and interesting. I'd love to read this someday!

  4. I don't know what to say, other than well done! She seems really well thought out, and interesting. And I'd love to read her story someday!!
