Happy Monday, guys! To keep up with the Blogging Extravaganza, I’m coming today with another original blog post. For more info on this fun feature, check out Beauty & The Bookshelf’s blog post.
If I were a fictional character… Wow that was a hard topic to come up with, but definitely, a load of fun, so, let’s try that. I’m going to divide this post in a few parts, and try and write it like a crazy story…because WHY NOT. Let’s prep for Camp NaNo while we can (I am SO late I still don’t know what to do, PLEASE SEND HELP AND A BREATHER) and I hope you’ll enjoy it! I’m definitely completely IMPROVISING THIS. And putting totally random gifs with it, because WHY NOT. Please be gentle.
“Not too tall, but not too short, she was just the right size to blend into the crowd, and that’s what she enjoyed. Living in the shadows, not because she was the chosen one and getting ready to fight evil and Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named, but just because she didn’t like dragging attention onto her. Her shirt stick onto her skin and her palms felt sweaty from getting into a whole new world, into a sea of people she didn’t know. She always hated crowds, it somehow made her feel a bit claustrophobic. Her average-brown hair caught into the sun, and she bent her head, trying to avoid getting the sun in her eyes. The sun was bad. She hated the sun, not because she was a vampire, but because it reminded her that sooner or later, her thoughts, just like the sun, could explode in her head and make her feel crazy again.”
She’d be a mix of Emmy from Emmy & Oliver, Lenny from the Sky is Everywhere, with all of these artistic abilities towards painting and art in general. Shy and introvert but completely crazy inside of her comfort zone. Weird pet peeves: likes to rearrange her room every two days, counts all her books on her shelves because they are her most prized possession, slightly obsessed with her hair because they are most of the time out of control on her face. Her eyes are bright blue and her skin is too pale, but she’s not a vampire.
“They were surrounding her with joy and an exhilarating feeling of being understood. Sometimes, when they just launched into conversation, she knew she could catch up and just made it feel like she belonged since the beginning, because she did. When she had something to say, she knew they’d listen to her, but sometimes she felt shut out of their conversations, because well, it happens.”
“Straight out of Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, they all gather around the TV to watch their favorite reality show, here it has to be The Amazing Race, and scream and cry to tears when their favorite teams wins or loses. Unlike an awful lot of families, no one is the big badass, no one is going to BETRAY ANYONE and they are comfy with each other and feeling okay at cooking and throwing flour all over the kitchen floor, because no one’s really high maintenance.”
It’s all been said, Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, never a more accurate yet funny family has been described. With a little bit of motherly love from Aristotle and Dante. A an I’ll Give You The Sun kind of sisterhood because this is everything.
The plot, the twist and the happy ending
“Everything was ending here, right where it began, a comfy place they could now call home. They were tired, not because they had to chase demons like in all of those books, but just because they had to live. But it was a good kind of tired, it was the one that makes you stretch in your bed out of happiness, because in the end, it was a good day. Hearts got broken, accidents did happen, and mysteries were sometimes better left unsold. It was okay. Everything was. And, as she turned around, she embraced the lights of the city, and she knew, if she made one step forward, maybe she could fly. And it was there, the knowing, that was enough.”
This story would be a contemporary YA with a lot of feelings, obviously. Hearts get broken and things happen, maybe a little bit of mystery around a disappearance. Friends, love, feelings, LOTS OF THEM. And most of all, a happy ending.
