With every new month comes a new Beautiful People link up. Let us throw some confetti and eat cake and yell: YAY FOR CAIT AND SKY FOR BEING AWESOME.
I am not a romantic person at all. No one in my immediate family is. (Except my dad, but he's surrounded by emotionless females, and he learned to adjust). So the couples I write are typically not romantic. In fact, they usually just insult each other to their hearts' delight.
This couple doesn't even know they're a couple yet. BUT THEY ARE. Their friends wiggle their eyebrows and giggle evilly when their backs are turned. (So do I).
And, in fact, they've gotten the closest to being an actual couple than anyone else I've written. (this shows how far couples actually get before I send one off to the gallows)
(Again, I am kidding)
But, onwards to our spotlighted couple: Caster and Robyn.
1. How long have they been a couple?
Like I stated above. They're totally a couple while simultaneously stating firmly that they have no feelings for each other. (clueless fools)
2. How did they first meet?
Well, Robyn was a ghost and Caster was very alive, so as you can imagine there was some confusion. They met in the maze Robyn was murdered in. (not a maze like the Maze Runner. I wrote this book when I knew nothing of TMR. This maze was much smaller and much less murderous, and nothing at all like the maze in TMR, except for the part where it is a maze). This is where you might be confused. Robyn died in the maze. So the maze must be murderous. But I have mislead you. Robyn was killed by a person.
I have also gotten off topic.
Caster and Robyn met after he had made his way through said maze. When he turned around-- BAM. There was Robyn, who was very confused since there hadn't been anyone in the maze in, like, a century and also she was supposed to be dead, so why could this random guy see her?
3. What were their first thoughts of each other? (Love at first sight or “you’re freakishly annoying”?)
Well, Caster's first thought was less "you're freakishly annoying" and more "you're freakishly weird." He had full right to that. Robyn thought he was beautiful in the way you look at a different planet and go "wow, that's beautiful, but I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole."
4. What do they do that most annoys each other?
Well, Caster breathes.
(Sorry). Caster does breathe, of course, but he's also snarky and grumpy and wanders around pouting half the time. Dreadful downer, that one. But it's actually the way Caster doesn't seem to care about anything that bothers Robyn.
Caster is just annoyed that Robyn doesn't know anything about the modern world so he has to go out of his way to explain. *eyeroll*
5. Are their personalities opposite or similar?
Less and less opposite as the story progresses.
6. How would their lives be different without each other?
Well, for one thing, Robyn would still be dead, which would be unfortunate. And Caster would be stuck in his "boring" life. (I put quotations because he has a hoverboard. Life could not possibly be boring if you have a hoverboard. Of this I am convinced.)
7. Are they ever embarrassed of each other?
ALL THE TIME. Robyn is embarrassed when Caster is really rude to people, and Caster is embarrassed when Robyn has no idea what is going on and it is really, super obvious.
8. Does anyone disapprove of their relationship?
NO ONE. NO ONE AT ALL. EVERYONE SHIPS THEM.
9. Do they see their relationship as long-term/leading to marriage?
Robyn will want it to be forever. So will Caster. But MARRIAGE??? CHILDREN??? Little wriggling balls of stink???
Now would be a good time to tell you that Robyn is fifteen and Caster is sixteen. Neither of them are thinking marriage.
10. If they could plan the “perfect outing” together, where would they go?
Their options are very limited, but if they weren't... Really, just anywhere. Anywhere new. Anywhere they could explore.
