The characters I chose are Quinn (17) and Luna (19), the sisters in that post-apocolyptic, alien-filled, also weapon-filled book I've mentioned on both this blog and on Twitter.
1. How long have they known each other, and how
They've known each other their whole lives. It's hard to say exactly how close they are. I mean, they trust each other with their lives, but at the same time, they're afraid to address certain "issues" within their friendship. They both struggle with sharing how they feel, but most of the time, they know the other person understands anyways.
2. What’s their earliest memory of being best friends?
Luna remembers taking care of Quinn as a little girl, huddled in the backseat of her dad's old truck while her parents tried to get away from the wide-spread panic and all the attacks.
Quinn remembers throwing her Barbie doll at Luna when they were fighting. (Pleasant, as she always is).
3. Do they fight? How long do they typically fight for?
They fight a lot. Because of how unwilling they are to talk about how they feel while simultaneously being afraid of pushing the other person away, there's less talking and more poisonous looks and bitter retorts. Their fights last a while, and Luna is typically the first to try and smooth things over. Quinn tends to simultaneously want to confront the problem and ignore it. A lot of how she's kept herself together is by ignoring how she feels.
4. Are their personalities similar or do they compliment each other?
Quinn is a ball of negative energy.
Luna is a ball of noticeably less negative energy.
They're both stubborn and loyal, but Quinn tends to feel things in the extremes. She struggles with showing her feelings more than Luna and is cold and aggressive. This stems from the fact that she has never seen a world without war. Luna, on the other hand, is warmer and more accepting. She holds more responsibility than Quinn, which often results in her blaming herself for things that go wrong. Her positive outlook on life is what's kept her from destroying herself with guilt and worry.
5. Who is the leader of their friendship (if anyone)?
6. Do have any secrets from each other?
No. Even if they try to hide things, the other finds out soon enough, just by reading how the other one reacts to certain topics.
7. How well do they know each other’s quirks and habits?
As well as their own, and, occasionally, better.
8. What kind of things do they like to do together?
Is it bad that I laughed a little?
Talk, I suppose. Tease. Engage in playful verbal combat. They live in a world where you don't spend time doing things you enjoy. You spend time doing what you need to survive.
9. Describe each character’s fashion style (use
Hm. Well, Quinn wears dark colors. She likes combat boots, loose t-shirts, and leather. Luna likes flannel, cargo pants, and layers.
I imagine that if they could dress however they wanted, they would look something like this:
They would both be dead.
I tried to think of something more... pleasant, but I came up empty. Maybe Luna would have lived, but Quinn wouldn't have made it past a couple years.
On that lovely note, thanks for reading! ^_^
