Meet My MC – A Writers Linkup Hosted by Maya Joelle

Eeekkk!!!!! I’m so excited!!!! I’m finally doing “Meet My MC”!!πŸ˜ƒ If you want to find out more details about this awesome linkup and the questions click here. Ok, so here you go guys – a look into what I’ve been writing lately!

My novel is called . . .

Behind the Blade, Without the Wings.

Oooh, so mysterious! XD Should I show you guys a mock cover? ‘Cause I have a lot of them. Eh, why not? I’ll show you five of them. The first three are designed by the amazing author and blogger, Grace Johnson. They are all so FABULOUS!!!!!! AND. SO. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒ I love them so much!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, Grace, for designing them for me!!!!!!!!! (I could stare at these all day!)

This next one is designed by my wonderful sister, Issabelle Perry. (Sorry about the wonky sizes by the way. At the moment, I’m not sure how to fix that.)

And here is one that I designed.

Okay, now that that is over it’s time to actually get on with the post. Also, my WIP is written with an alternate POV, so I will answer the questions for my female and male lead characters.

1 // Introduce your MC. What’s their name? Age? Appearance? (Sharing collages/inspiration photos encouraged!)

Princess Rosalie is 16 years old. She has golden hair. Oh, and she’s a Fairy. Although (as hinted in the title) she doesn’t have wings . . . er . . . well . . . she doesn’t leave her wings visible for anyone to see. (Her ability to make her wings disappear is through Fairy magic.)

Now, for some images! I have been waiting forever to show you guys this, but I was saving it for this post. Sooo, the fabulous blogger, Grace King-Matchett, drew this picture of Rosalie!!! Isn’t it so beautiful?! I think it looks JUST LIKE Rosalie!!! Plus, she has that princess-y look!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, Grace, for drawing it for me!!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒ

Credit: drawn by Grace King-Matchett

Also, I have a character image-thing for Rosalie:

Now for my next MC:

Commander Palladin is 19 years old. He has brown hair and a very short beard (like Aragorn from Lord of the Rings). Also, (once again as hinted in the title), Palladin’s sword is how he uses his magic. Basically, Palladin is a Morrior (magical warrior).Β 

And I have a quote graphic of Palladin to share. Issabelle designed it for me! Thank you so much, Is!!!!!!<3

Isn’t that line so epic?!

2 // Explain how your MC fits into the plot of your book (as best you can without spoiling it all…).

Rosalie is the princess of the Fairies and Palladin is the Commander of a certain group of Morriors. Rosalie and the Fairy king struck a deal with the Morriors’ leader (who is yet to be named) that if they help capture the Commander, then the Morrior leader will not send war on the Fairies. And Palladin (remember that he is a Morrior) is already trying to start another war. He’s helping the leader of his country in way but in another way he kinda does his own thing. (Okay, so I hope that that paragraph made sense.πŸ˜‚)

3 // What’s the first thing your MC says in the story? The last? A random quote from the middle that you like?

Oooh, yay, I get to share quotes!!!!! πŸ˜€ I hope you guys like them!!!

ROSALIE

First line: β€œThank you for your patience but I’m ready now”

Last line so far: Β “I will pray to Him [God] and ask Him for peace”

Random line from the middle: β€œDo you have maybe an idea of where the trespassing Morriors might have gone?”

PALLADIN

First line: β€œDon’t you think I know that?”

Last line so far: “How do you know it wasn’t because he would get something in return?”Β (Hehe, this line is probably not what you guys think it is.πŸ˜‰)

Random line from the middle: β€œYou are supposed to follow my orders. I did not order you to kill him.”

4 // Which other character would die for your MC?

Ahh. Dear, sweet Ash would die for Rosalie. Ash is a Fairy of Nobility and he cares so much for Rosalie.

Deveraux (such a loyal man) would die for Palladin.

5 // Would your MC die for them?

Yes. Absolutely!Β 

6 // Have any major details about your MC changed since you first created them?

Hmm, well, Rosalie now wants to help capture the Commander and Palladin seems to have an act on the surface. Like maybe deep down he’s trying to prove himself or something like that.

7 // What characters (from books/movies not by you) remind you of your MC? Why?

Yes!!!! I’ve been waiting for this question!!!! Rosalie reminds me of Elsa from Frozen. She is quiet but still a good leader and I think Elsa is a good leader even though she’s often quiet.Β 

Palladin reminds me of Eugene (aka, Flynn Rider) from Tangled. I can’t seem to place why though, except for the fact that Palladin’s hairstyle is similar to Eugene. (Plus, the gif below works so great for Palladin because of the swords. Swords are his life!)

8 // Share your MC’s favorites!
[ color, food, type of clothing, place, type of music, season, smell, etc. ]

ROSALIE

Her favorite color is red and/or pink. Her favorite flower is roses (obviously). Favorite smell is the smell of any type of flower. Favorite place is the forest. Her favorite type of clothing would be her dresses. Favorite season might be Fall. And her favorite sound is the sound of a waterfall.

PALLADIN

His favorite color is silver (like the color of his sword).Β Favorite animal is horses. Favorite place is probably his home (though this could change). Favorite food might be lobster. Favorite object is his sword. Favorite thing to do is cause trouble.Β 

9 // If your MC wasn’t involved in your story, what would they be doing? (Basically: what’s their dream life? Where do they want to live, what do they want to do?)

Rosalie would prepare herself for her future duties as queen.

Um . . . Palladin would do exactly what he is currently doing in the novel. He chose to cross into enemy territory. His whole life was to cause trouble. If I didn’t write this novel Palladin would still continue on as he always had. If anything, sticking Palladin in my novel was probably beneficial for him in the long run.

And to be honest, if I didn’t write this novel then things would never get better for both/all of my characters. Wars would continue. Hate would remain everywhere. And neither of them would find love.

10 // Share a fun extra (another collage, a playlist, a scene from the story, a drawing, etc.).

Eeek!!!!! This is such a fun question!!!!Β 

First off, the song “Revolutionary” by Josh Wilson fits my novel SO PERFECTLY!!!!!!!!! (Like, how is that possible? XD)Β  I came up with my novel idea BEFORE this song was even released! And then I heard this song and it inspires me to continue writing my novel.

Here’s another collage that Issabelle designed for me:

And here is a picture that I took for inspiration:

And, now, for the FIRST EVER SNIPPET THAT I WILL SHARE on here!!!!! I had a hard time choosing which one, but here is one with Palladin’s POV . . .Β 

Until we were spotted.

β€œYou there!” someone shouted.Β 

Roman and I turned our heads.Β 

A palace guard looked our way and started coming towards us.

β€œRemain calm,” I whispered to Roman.Β 

Roman glanced down at his side where his sword was. I hoped he would obey my orders and let me handle this.

β€œWhat is your purpose?” the guard asked when he approached.

I cleared my throat. β€œWe . . . uh . . . we were just looking for someone.”

The guard relaxed a little. β€œDo you need my assistance?” 

β€œNo, it’s alright. We can manage on our own,” I replied.

β€œAre you sure, Monsieur?”

I was about to answer yes and then all would probably have been fine. But before I could, the guard gasped and fell to the ground.

So, there you have it! A first draft snippet. I hope you liked it though. πŸ™‚

Yep, I have finally told you guys about my MCs!Β I hope you found them interesting! Tell me your thoughts in the comments. And here are some questions to get things rolling: Which character do you find more interesting – Palladin or Rosalie? From what you can tell so far, would you rather be a Morrior or a Fairy? Which mock cover did you like the best? What do you like the most about these characters? I can’t wait to hear from you!!!!!

  • Jane

    Yes!!!!!!!! I’ve been waiting sooooo long to read this!!!!!!!! It was so great to meet your MCs!!!!!!!!!!
    All the covers and graphics were AMAZING!!!!!!!! And I LOVE the idea of fairies and Morriors!!!! (I also love the name Morriors by the way!! I mean, magic warriors!!! Its so creative!!) It’s like you combined all my favorite things into one awesome story!!!!!!!!!!!
    Oh come on, you really expect me to choose which character is more interesting?!

    I’m kinda leaning towards pallden, but I feel like they’ll be the most interesting when they’re together. Maybe. I’m honestly not sure. XD

    Well I can clearly tell now that your new hobby is asking people impossible questions. Can I be a Fairy Morrior? πŸ˜‚
    I’m gonna say. . . Ahh!! I don’t know!!!! They both sound so neat!!!!!!
    Okay, okay, I’m going with. . . Morrior? *mutters about hard questions* XD

    Hmm, I don’t know. They were all AMAZING, but I really like the font on your name on Issabelles, so, I guess that one? They were all just so incredible it’s hard to choose just one!!!!!

    *gives you a how-could-you-ask-this-question look* (that’s a thing right? XD)
    Hmm, I think I just like the fact that you have Fairies and Morriors. The whole concept of your story just has me fascinated right now!!!!!!!!! It’s just so creative!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now, before I end this really long comment, it needed to be said that, YOU THINK PALLDEN IS LIKE EUGENE FITZHERBERT!!! That’s who I think one of my characters is like!!!!!!!
    He one of my favorite Disney characters and his personality is just so fun!!!! It’s like it’s begging to be replicated!!!!!! XD

    Anyway, it was so nice to finally meet your MCs!!!!!! I can’t wait for you to finish the story!!!! I’m sure it’ll be FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!! <33

    • Katherine

      Heelllooo, twin sis!!!!πŸ˜‰ Eeeekkkk!!!!!! I know, right?! I have been waiting FOREVER to do this post!!!!!!!!!!! And the time for it finally came! I was so excited when I finished writing up the post last night, I couldn’t stop thinking about it!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And then even worse, I dreamt last night that the post didn’t go up when it was scheduled to.😬 Let’s just say, I woke up in a panic.) Aww, that means so much to me that you were happy to meet my MCs!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ’— THANK YOU!!!!!!! I really like them too! And Issabelle and Grace did a GREAT JOB at designing some of the covers and graphics!!!!!!!!!! Eeek, YAY!!!!!!! I’m so happy you love the Fairies and Morriors!!!!!!!! I LOVE to write about fairies!!!!!!! And I love being able to create something new with the Morriors and how their magic works! (THANK YOU!!!!!! Issabelle had wanted some warriors in my novel and since I was trying to create a new kind of people with magic, I combined the words “magic” and “warroir” and got “Morrior”. Awww, thank you!!!<3<3) Awww! You're so sweet!!!!!!😊 I'm glad to hear it's got all your favorite things in it!!!!!!!!!
      Hehehe, sorry about that. I should've known better! XD I have the HARDEST time choosing favorite characters.

      Cool choice!!!!! Palladin is really AWESOME!!!!!!! Ahhh, yes, when they're together is the BEST!!!!!!!!! They are so cute together!

      LOLOLOLOL🀣 Haha, yep! That's my new hobby!! XD Haha, absolutely!!!! That might would make you half-Fairy and half-Morrior (but you would be the first one 'cause so far no one else is half-blood in the novel).πŸ˜‰ Plus, being a Fairy Morrior would mean that you would have the magic of a Fairy and a Morrior! Smart choice! Yes, they're both interesting!!!!!! Morrior is an excellent choice (not to mention those SHINY swords)!!!!!!!! (Hehehe, it was a hard question for me too!)

      I know, right?!!! I LOVE ALL OF THEM SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oooh, yes, I really love the font of my name for that one too!!!!!!!! It was so pretty! I know, so hard to choose! (Whhyyy do I have to ask these question??? XD XD XD)

      Yep, totally a thing! XD *shakes head at myself* I knew that even I couldn't answer these questions, so I could I expect anyone else to?! XD
      Thank you!!!! I really like how my Fairies are very different from what we normally think of fairies. AHHH, THANK YOU, JANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Truly, I am so happy that you are fascinated with my story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ Thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

      *gasp* ONE OF YOUR CHARACTERS IS LIKE EUGENE FITZHERBERT TOO?!?!?!?!?!?! We must have really good taste in characters.😁 YES YES YES!!!!!!! Eugene is one of my favorite Disney characters too!!!!!!!!!!!!! I totally agree, his personality is awesome!!!!! Absolutely! XD

      THANK YOU SO SO MUCH, JANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awww, thank you!!!!!<3333 I hope so and I can't wait to finish it too!!!

  • Madisyn

    “If anything, sticking Palladin in my novel was probably beneficial for him in the long run”. I love this!!! Our characters are so ungrateful. They should be thanking us for all we do for them.

    I love the character boards! They give just enough information about the character to pique curiosity, while also maintaining the edge of mysteriousness. Aren’t songs that fit perfectly fit a character just the best?

    Loved learning about your characters! Good luck on your writing!

    • Katherine

      THANK YOU SO MUCH, MADISYN!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜€ I know, right?! They just don’t realize that we all helping them. Yes, they should be thanking us more. We go out of our way just to write about them and maybe even give them a happy ending.

      Thank you!!!!! Yay, I’m so happy the boards spark curiosity!!!!!!! Ahh, yes!!!!! Songs that fit perfectly for the character and story are the best ever!!!!!

      Aww, thank you!!!!!πŸ˜€ I’m so happy to hear that you liked it!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!

  • Alana

    KATHERINE!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, I have to say that I think both Rosalie and Palladin are interesting to me. I would rather be a fairy. I can’t decide which mock cover I like best. I REALLY like how Rosalie is a princess fairy, destined to rule her people one day, and I Really like Palladin is causing trouble in the beginning (hopefully he and the fairies will become good friends in the end).

    Again, this is AWESOME, Katherine!!!!!!!!!πŸ—‘οΈπŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

    • Katherine

      Hi, Alana!!!! *waves* THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒ

      Yay!!! They are such amazing characters!!!!!! Ahh, yes!!! Fairies are so cool!!! Plus, they can fly!!!!! I know, I can’t decide either!!!!! They all look so AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Thank you! Me too! I love writing characters with royalty!!! Ahh, yes, me too!! Palladin causing trouble definitely adds to his character. πŸ˜‰ (Yes, hopefully!πŸ™‚ *fingers crossed*)

      THANK YOU SO MUCH, ALANA!!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒ (P.S. I LOVE those emojis!!!)

  • Grace A. Johnson

    AW, Katherine, I’m so glad you liked my covers! I had a ton of fun designing them for you! Yours and Izzy’s are FANTASTIC–and I LOVE that collage!!! *heart eyes* I loved learning more about your charries–they sound AWESOME! Especially Palladin!

  • Ally M.J.

    YES! I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR YOUR MEET MY MC THING!
    I absolutely LOVE this. I loved all of the covers and the snippet and the story idea and the GIFs and just EVERYTHING. Rosalie and Palladim sound like such amazing characters, and I’m not going to lie, the whole β€˜Made-to-make-trouble’ thing sort of sounds like one of my characters, Issin. From what I can tell about Palladim, he and Issin would either get along great or blow up the universe. Or both. Probably both.
    I love the song β€œRevolutionary!” I would listen to it on repeat before remembering that I had other songs waiting for their turn. AH! I’m so excited to read this when it’s done!
    (PS: Love the quote on Palladim’s graphic 😻)
    Thanks for the post!

    • Katherine

      AHHH, YES! I have been waiting FOREVER to write it and post it!!! I’m happy to hear that you were excited about it!!!!!!πŸ˜€
      THANK YOU SO MUCH, ALLY!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy you loved everything!!!!!!! Thank you!!! Oooh, that’s so cool that one of your characters as “made-to-make” trouble thing going on!!!!!!!! And that name “Issin” sounds AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Haha, Palladin probably would get along with and blow up the universe with Issin. I can definitely see him doing that, especially if he can gain something from blowing up the universe.
      ME TOO!!!!!! That song is so amazing!!!!!! Same here! Yay, I’m so HAPPY to hear that!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜€ I can’t wait to finish writing it!!!!!
      (Thank you so much!!!!!!!!πŸ˜€ It’s one of my favorite lines from the book!)
      No problem!πŸ‘ And thank you so much for reading and commenting!!!

  • Victoria

    OH MY GOODNESS, KATHERINE, THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!! I gotta say, when I first saw the teaser for this post at the top I thought, “How cool! I wonder what her story is!” *silence with crickets chirping* Well, DUH VICTORIA, you aLrEaDy KnOw what her story’s about. *slaps forehead* #DoryBrainStrikesAgain! XD

    BUT ANYWAY, it was SOOOO fun reading more about Rosalie and Palladin and AAAHHH!!!! I just loved EVERYTHING!!! For the questions, I’d say I’m more interested in Palladin just ’cause he’s so mysterious and I also LOVE Eugene! (I actually had a dream about him and Rapunzel the other night which I have NO IDEA why. But at least it was a pretty good dream!) XD I would probably want to be a Fairy (mostly because I’d likely end up killing myself if I was trying to be a Morrior). XD As for the mock covers….ARGH, IT’S SO HARD TO PICK A FAVORITE!!! I really like the one with the shadows of the man and the woman on the cover so I guess I’ll with that one! πŸ˜‰ Also, I LOOOVE the collage and the quote graphic Issabelle made!!! Oh and also, also, that’s SOOO COOL how Revolutionary fits your story!!!! I’ve heard that song a few times but can REALLY see now how it’s so perfect for it! Thank you so much for sharing this, Kat!!! It was a whole lotta fun getting to know your MCs better! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • Katherine

      THANK YOU SO MUCH, VICTORIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ I am grinning so hard right now!!!! Oh my goodness! I nearly died laughing when I read the first paragraph of your comment.🀣🀣 I can SERIOUSLY see myself doing the same thing.πŸ˜† I’ve got that Dory brain sometimes. XD LOLOLOL!

      Yay!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!! I am sooo happy you enjoyed reading it!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒ I was hoping you would like it!! Ahhh, yes, he is very mysterious even to me!! My previous WIP was a spy story and I think that’s where Palladin is getting his “mysterious” side. I LOVE EUGENE TOO!!!!!πŸ˜€ *high-fives* Eugene is sooo amazing!!!!!!! (Haha, I wish I dreamt about Eugene! XD I’m glad it was a good dream though!πŸ˜‰) Oooh, yes, Fairies are awesome and they can fly! (Oof, I wouldn’t want you to hurt yourself. XD) I KNOW, RIGHT?! I can’t pick a favorite because they are all so FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! Ooh, yes, that’s a really good one!!!! Me too!!! Issabelle did a great job on them!!!! Thank you!!!!!!! Ahhh, yes, sooo perfect! You’re so welcome, Victoria!!!!!!<3 Thank you so much for reading and commenting!!!!<3 I'm so happy to hear that!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ (And my MCs are very happy you enjoyed getting to know them better!πŸ˜‰)

  • Jen

    Your story sounds so cool, Katherine!!! I love all the covers, graphics, and collages and loved learning about your characters!!! Rosalie and Palladin sound amazing! πŸ˜€ But, wait, what? I don’t think I knew you and Issabelle are sisters! XD I know I’ve missed a few posts (working on catching up πŸ˜‰ ) did I miss an announcement or something? XD Who’s older, you or Issabelle? ;p And that snippet!?!? So intriguing!!! ^_^

    • Katherine

      Thank you so much, Jen!!!!!!!πŸ˜€ I’m so glad you think so!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!<3 I am truly so happy you loved learning more about my characters!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!πŸ˜€ Hehehe, yep, we're sisters! It's alright, don't stress over our posts. They're no big deal. I know I'm behind on blog posts too. No, you didn't miss any big announcement. I slightly mentioned that we were sisters in the Liebster Award post. It was one sentence in a MONSTROUS-sized blog post. But that was it - just a mention. So you didn't miss anything.πŸ˜‰ XD I'm older than Issabelle and Alana is my twin sister. πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much, Jen!!!!!! ^_^ I am so HAPPY you found the snippet intriguing!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mahitha

    Katherine!!! I wanna read this book so badly now!! T_T I find Palladin more interesting since he’s the more mysterious one. XD And I’d rather be a Morrior. It sounds cool to be one! I like Issabelle’s mock cover a lot! (I love silhouettes…XD) I’m not sure what I like most about each character though. I guess I’d have to learn more about them! πŸ˜‰

    • Katherine

      Hi, Mahitha!!!! REALLY?!?!?! YAY!!!!!!πŸ˜€ I’m so happy to hear that!!!!!! Great choice!πŸ‘ Palladin is soooo mysterious. I don’t know why he’s doing what he’s doing half the time. XD XD Oooh, yes, Morriors are sooo COOL!!!!!!!!! Thank you! I love Issabelle’s cover design too!!! She did a great job with it!!!!! (The silhouettes were a great touch!) Yeah, I love both of my characters equally so I can’t choose which one I like more.πŸ˜‰ Okay-dokey, I can’t wait for you to learn more about them too!!!!!!πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for reading and commenting!!!!

  • Em Elizabeth

    Ooooooooo! The graphics and images were all beautiful (shoutout to all who made them!), and the title is very intriguing. These two characters were fun to meet, and it seems like they’ve got some great adventures ahead of them! Also, this line: β€œYou are supposed to follow my orders. I did not order you to kill him.” had me HOOKED!

    • Katherine

      πŸ˜€ Thank you!!!!! I really liked them too!!! The girls who made them did a FANTABULOUS job!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!! It took me awhile to craft the title, but once I got it together I really liked it!πŸ˜‰ Yay, I’m so happy to hear that!!!!! Yes, indeed!πŸ˜‰ *squeals with delight* THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! I am so HAPPY that line has you hooked!!!!!! Again, thank you so much!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜€

  • Joy Caroline

    Sabbath peace, Katherine!

    This was awesome! It’s so hard to choose a favorite cover. All of them are beautiful, but I would have to say: I really like the second one.

    “You are supposed to follow my orders. I did not order you to kill him.” So intense. I’m very curious about what was going on there!

    Are your characters French, or is the novel’s setting in France? I noticed the usage of “Monsieur.” Ever since reading Les Miserables, I’ve become greatly interested in French language. Today, actually, I was trying to figure out how to pronounce Monsieur, Mademoiselle, Monseigneur… not to mention the characters’ names. I was so proud of myself for finally figuring out how to pronounce Javert! LOL, that was from listening to the musical.

    Anyways, this was such a fun post. I definitely enjoyed getting to know your characters!

    • Katherine

      Sabbath peace to you too, JC!!!πŸ’—

      Thank you so much!!!!!! I know, it’s sooo hard to choose a favorite cover. Thank you!!!!! Ooooh, I LOVE the second one too!!!!!! It totally says fantasy!

      Hehehe, thank you!!! *glances around the room to make sure no one else is listening* Ok, I’ll give you a little hint about that scene: that line actually comes after the snippet I shared in the post. So, when “the guard gasped and fell to the ground” he was killed by Roman.🀫

      Good eye, JC!!!πŸ˜‰ The setting, though, is a fictional place. But as I was writing Rosalie’s part, I could easily see her country having a bit of French culture. I’m still in my first draft, so I’ve included some French words like “Monsieur” and “Merci” in the dialogue to help me get a feel of the story. I hope, though, in later drafts to have “made-up” words that are in the characters’ native languages. Oooh, cool!!!! That was the main reason I wanted to read Les Miserables when I read your review on it because of the French setting. I LOVE the French language!!!!!!!!! It’s so beautiful!!!!! Fun fact: both “Palladin” and “Rosalie” are French names! That’s awesome that you are learning to pronounce French words and names!!!!!!πŸ˜€ (Lol, listening to it helps me to pronounce them too.)

      THANK YOU SO MUCH, JC!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜€ Yay, I am so HAPPY to hear that!!!!!!!πŸ˜€

      • Joy Caroline

        Oh, that’s so cool! The French language is so pretty, as are most romantic languages. It’s a lot like Spanish (also a romantic language), which I obviously love since it’s part of my culture.

        The French setting in Les Mis is so awesome, especially with all the political stuff going on at the time it was written. I’m glad you’re planning to read it!

        Yes, I definitely can’t wait to hear more about this story!

        • Katherine

          Thank you, JC!!!!!!!πŸ˜€ I agree!πŸ‘ YES, I LOVE the romance languages!!!!! I wish I could speak all of them! Ooh, cool!!!!!!πŸ˜€

          That’s so COOL!!!! Ahh, Les Mis sounds AMAZING!!!!!!!!πŸ˜€ Yes, I can’t wait to read it!!!!!!!! I’m so glad you told me about it!

          Yay!!!!! Thank you!!!! I am so HAPPY to hear that!!!!!πŸ˜€πŸ’— I hope you’ll like it!

  • Trixie M.

    Woohoo! Finally I can meet your characters! And I was not disappointed, Rosalie and Palladin sound awesome! This idea was epic, I’m honestly a little jealous of your imagination πŸ˜‰

That song is WONDERFUL!!!!!! I was so amazed at how well it fit my storyline with the Fairies and Morriors being so different and not liking each other because of it. Thank you, I agree!!!!!!πŸ˜‚ I thought it was kind of fun to relate them to Disney characters!πŸ˜† Thank you so much for reading and commenting!!!!!<333

  • Alexa

    I LOVE ROSALIE AND PALLADIN!! This was so fun to learn about them! Thank you so much for sharing! Hmm, would I rather be a morrior or a fairy? Probably a fairy. I’d be too scared to be a morrior! I love all the mock covers!

    • Katherine

      THANK YOU, ALEXA!!!!!!!!πŸ˜ƒ It means so much to me to hear that you love them!!!! I’m glad you enjoyed learning about them!!!!! I had a lot of fun writing this post up! Aww, you’re welcome and thank YOU so much for reading and commenting!!!!!! Awesome choice!πŸ‘ Fairies are so cool and I love their majestic wings!!!πŸ˜‰ Yeah, me too.
