Helloooo, guys, and happy Thursday! I’m super excited to introduce to you today Team Periwinkle’s Book Blogger Creativity Project (BBCP) 2016: Match Made in the Pages! What is it, you ask? Well…
MATCH MADE IN THE PAGES is a two-part feature where I’ll be setting up one of my favourite characters on a blind date with characters from other books — with your help. 😈
Part 1: I’ll be asking my character a couple of questions to get to know them and see what kind of things they might like. It’s this post you’re reading!
Part 2: In a week, I’ll be taking the characters you suggested and imagine the kinds of dates they will enjoy (or not) with my character!
The character I picked, unsurprisingly, is Kell from V. E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic series. Because we know that Kell is a man of very few words, I’ve got his brother, Prince Rhy, to sit in with us for this interview. Let’s get started! 🙂
Read: What I discovered by stalking Tumblr and Wiki.
HAIR COLOUR: Reddish brown
EYE COLOUR: Blue (left), black (right)
The seven deadly questions.
1) What do you do for work?
Kell: I’m… let’s just say I’m a messenger. I spend most of my time delivering the King and Queen’s missives to other kingdoms —
Rhy: That’s one way of putting it.
Kell: — and the rest of the time, I keep the prince out of trouble.
Kell: It’s true, and you know it.
2) What do you look for in a relationship?
Rhy: Companionship. Adventure. Someone who keeps him on his toes.
Kell: The correct answer is I don’t know. I haven’t given it much thought, I haven’t had the time… but companionship would be nice, I suppose.
3) What is your biggest weakness?
Kell: … I guess I can be a little stubborn.
Rhy: A little?
Kell: Okay, I can be quite stubborn.
Kell: And what?
Rhy: That’s not your only biggest weakness! Here, I can answer that better for you: you scowl a lot, you’re pessimistic and a downer, you don’t respect authority, you have a temper and get angry really easily, you’re unnecessarily overprotective, you hold grudges, and you… why are you looking at me like that?
Kell: Let’s move on.
4) What do you fear most?
Kell: Death, now more than ever.
5) What is a goal that you are working on right now?
Kell: Not dying.
6) If you have to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Kell: And right now, annoyed.
Rhy: … but caring. Really caring, and really good.
Kell: That’s more than three words, Rhy.
7) What is your ultimate dream?
Kell: To be free.
Rhy: Much deep. So inspire.
Who will you choose for Kell?
Other than Lila, of course, but that’s kind of a given. 😂
Kestrel from the Winner’s trilogy, because they will be well-matched in intelligence?
Jane from My Lady Jane, so her optimism and good humour will rub off on him?
Vika from The Crown’s Game, because a love triangle’s so overrated and a love square is now trendy?
… or someone else from another book of your choosing?
