It’s time for another tag for writers! Since the Winter Is Here one worked quite well, I thought I’d do one for the upcoming Valentine’s Day as well. As per usual, I will be answering my own questions with the characters from Arcadia (more about that here) and hope you’ll enjoy!
- Thank the person who tagged you but also link back to the original post! (I want to see all your lovely answers, people!)
- Provide a short description of your WIP/story!
Kasia and Dyson have known each other their entire lives, their paths intertwining at every crossroad. So forgetting he ever existed doesn’t make any sense to Kasia and neither does finding out about the magical beings that took him away from her. Now, with the help of some allies with motives of their own, she will do everything she can to get him back, not knowing if either one of them will ever be the same after all is said and done.
You can check out this post to find out more about Arcadia!
- Don’t use just one character for all answers if possible!
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
If there is a couple in your WIP, what are their plans for Valentine’s Day? And if there is no couple in your WIP, is there someone your main character would like to spend Valentine’s Day with?
Dyson and Kasia are a couple and whenever they spent Valentine’s Day together, they’d have breakfast in bed with fresh strawberries and chocolate banana pancakes (which Dyson cooked). There were no special plans during the day, but they always made sure to get each other a ridiculously non-romantic Valentine’s Day card and have a quiet dinner together as well.
Who has no shame about going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day alone?
I think Findlay couldn’t care less about what other people think. I doubt he’d actually get a table at a restaurant, but he isn’t too aware of other people’s pitiful stares and such.
One of your characters requests a song on the radio for their crush! Which song and for which character would they pick it?
This is cheesiness only Dyson could plan for Kasia.
Is there a character who would organise an Anti-Valentine’s Day party?
Georgie would happily organise a party like that, because she don’t need no man/woman/society-forcing-a-construct-on-her-for-what-to-do-with-her-life. Galentine’s Day is her jam instead.
What romantic gesture would swoon your main character?
Hands down, Dyson had the best of best gifts for Kasia when he gave her a personalised leather-bound notebook. He wrote a heartfelt inscription for her on the first page and had her name and a favourite quote engraved on the outside. He is such a good boyfriend, I swear I would steal him away from her if I could.
Which character would buy a bunch of red roses and hand them out to strangers on the street, just to make their day?
This is something Leo, my precious darling, would definitely do. He has the best of hearts and even if he doesn’t have a sweetheart himself, it wouldn’t stop him from spreading the love with others. Also, who could say no to this cutie?
What are your main character’s favourite Valentine’s movies? (Note: Valentine’s movies don’t have to be romantic!)
Those are Kasia’s picks, but Dyson likes them too and if he says otherwise he is lying, because he is a big mushy softie inside.
Who is ready for the February 15th, just to get all the chocolate on sale?
Kasia, because chocolate.
Is there a character who never spends Valentine’s Day alone aka always has some sort of date?
From the top of my head, I can’t really think of anyone, but maybe Robyn. She strikes me as the kind of person who doesn’t like to be by herself a lot. Which is fine, you know, but some things you have to do yourself. Thankfully, Valentine’s Day is not one of those things.
Bonus: Create a Valentine’s Day aesthetic for one or several of your characters!
Even though Georgie may not celebrate Valentine’s Day with someone, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t treat herself!
