(( I hope this can become an interesting and fresh fiction piece. Please, anyone is welcome!))
The wishy-washy walls have become my only friend in the dank, windowless room. Minutes strech into hours, hours strech into days, days into weeks. I've lost count of how long I've been stuck in here. They pass a tray of food in reguarly and there's a tap in the corner of the room that drips endlessly. I'm slowly going insane, I can feel it. They think its inhumane to kill me, but locking me up is apparently okay. I haven't spoken a word since the first week or so of my arrival, where I screamed the place down. I have practically no recollection of how I got here. All I can remember is several black figures and cuffs on my wrists that left chaff marks on my pale skin. All I ever see now is the cracks on the walls and a gloved hand that gives me my food. They won't ever relent, I'll live out the rest of my days in this hole, praying that someone will rescue me. But who would? I'm alone in the world.
This sounds interesting... I think though I'd like to know more about the character and the story before I get into writing this... I think...
My ideas were she's (because I thought she'd be a girl) being kept prisoner in a future world --> reason unknown yet. She feels alone in the world and is a little insecure when it comes to friendship and relationships. She keeps to herself and can be kind of bitter and has an uncontrollable temper that is let out at her worst moments. Finds it hard to trust people because of a rough childhood. About 16-18 years old, with plain features: brown hair, which gets duller and duller during the time she spends locked up, sharp, prominent cheekbones. Her most striking feature: brilliant grey eyes that sometimes look bluish and sometomes more green.
I hope this added to your perspective of the character. I would like to collabrate with you, so add in ideas you have and we'll work from there. Oh and if you've have a good name for her, that'd be great cause I'm quite stuck :P
hmmmm... A name? uh... you know what, whenever i'm thinking up of names, I usually have the name mean what the character's personality is or something alike to that.
Aster? It's latin for star.
Aster, it means star.
And maybe we should write two different perspectives, you can do the girl, and I will do another character's perspective.
That's a great idea and i love the name Aster, it's so perky and creative! If you want to write a bit on another character so I can see where you're going with it then I'll continue with Aster. This is going to be great!
That's a great idea! I love the name Aster too! If you write a bit on another character's point of view then I can see where you're heading with it and I can write more from Aster's point of view.
sorry that posted twice! I thought it didn't work!
Yeah... That happens to me too...
I'm quickly thinking of a character right now.
Dexter: Nineteen years old, he was spoiled as a rich child and graduated at twelve years old. He is highly arrogant and stubborn. One of his many life mottos is, play fair. Who knows why he chooses that but it's known that he was once the master of cheating... Sound good? I think that we can make changes as we develop the story.
Yeah dexter sounds like an awesome character, very different. Do you want to start it off?
