Beautiful People: May 2016

Guess what, peeps? My characters are back! You can't get rid of them. They're like loveable cockroaches. I feel like I've been blogging about only writerly things, but whatever. I am the blogging queen, and you can't tell me what to do, peasant (just kidding, you all are wonderful!). 
I decided to write about Lua: The Pastel Princess, the Pink-Haired Pixie. She is a darling, and I love her to bits, but she has such a tragic life. 
That's her, but she has pink hair. 
How often do they smile? Would they smile at a stranger?

Yes. Lua would smile at everyone because she is a precious cupcake. She gives all of her happiness to others and keeps none of it for herself. 
What is the cruelest thing they’ve ever been told? And what was their reaction?
She's been told that she should never have happened, she was an accident, and that her mother doesn't love her. I just want to give her a hug! Her reaction was to not say anything, to internalize it. She doesn't want to make anyone as unhappy as the world has made her. She is very concerned about being kind to all. 

What is the kindest thing they’ve ever been told? And what was their reaction?

She has been told that she is an amazing person, and her reaction was to politely accept the compliment but internally disbelieve it. She doesn't think very much of herself, and she believes that she deserves every unkind word that she has ever heard. 

What is one strong memory that has stuck with your character from childhood? Why is it so powerful and lasting?
The memory of her mother being happy, and the memory of her family before everything changed. It's so powerful because it's one of the only memories of her father that she has. 

What book (a real actual published book!) do you think your character would benefit from reading?
I think that Lua would benefit from reading the Raven Cycle. She could easily relate to all of the characters in some way, and I think she would be fascinated by the Welsh mythology
Pastel Princess <3:

Have they ever been seriously injured? How severely? How did they react?
Emotionally harmed, or physically? If emotionally: For most of her life, those she loves has left her. and those who stayed have been unreliable and cruel. If physically: The most severe injury has been when she was taken to the hospital for breaking her arm after she "tripped" down the stairs. She also harms herself. 
Do they like and get along with their neighbours?
She pretends to like her neighbors, but she doesn't have a whole lot of interaction with them, so she doesn't really know if she likes them or not. She tries to appear happy to everyone which can make it seem like she gets along with everyone.
On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being easy and 10 being difficult) how easy are they to get along with?
She is the sweetest darling; if there was the slightest sign of disagreement or discomfort, she would fix it quickly. Everyone loves her (who really knows her), but barely anyone  knows her. She is quiet and tends to blend in despite her loud and bright wardrobe choices. 
If they could travel anywhere in the world, where would they go?
Anywhere that wasn't her house. I say "her house" because she refuses to believe that it's her home. Her only refuge is the library and her room. 

Who was the last person they held hands with?
Probably a nurse in the hospital. 
That was both fun and quite sad. I'm terribly sorry for Lua, though I am glad that she finds friends that "save" her. She really is a darling who deserves so much more. 
And this has been:
