Let's see, what to begin with first...
The lovely Charlotte from Charlotte On The Web (so clever!) gave me a wonderful, very sweet (literally) blog award!
So, I think we're all kinda 'ehhh...' on the things about me thing by now, so I'm gonna ask my character, Leaf Tinavin some questions...(he can be grumpy).
Me: So, seven questions for the Elf!
Leaf: *Annoyed stare*
Me: You're not one for hiding how you feel, are you...anyways....Let's see. What kind of Elf are you?
Leaf: In the Orient there aren't any particular race of Elves. We're all just that--Elves. Once, a long time ago, there were difference races of Elves, but at this point, we're a dying race. We stay on our island and don't usually bother with the world. If you really wanted an answer, I'd have to say I was descended from a line of water elves...hence my occupation.
Me: Which is piracy, but you are also a Prince. How do you handle both extremes?
Leaf: My occupation as a pirate has helped my race out immensely. I'd tell you how, but you probably don't want to ruin the ending of your book.
Me: Right. Well...what's your favorite weapon and why?
Leaf: It all depends on who I'm fighting. I've saved a lot of lives with my bow, and it works pretty well at sea, however, there is nothing like a good sword fight.
Me: Cool! So, between you and me, in a match between Barren and Cove, who would win?
Leaf: That's difficult. They'd probably tire each other out...I'd say they'd both lose.
Me: You're a real friend, you know that? That's not a question BTW!
Leaf: You're cheating.
Me: *ignoring the Elf while scanning my list of questions* I've always wondered what your favorite color was. You always wear green.
Leaf: I like green. Green is good.
Me: Helpful...helpful stuff. Okay, If you could live in any castle in The Orient, where would you live?
Leaf: My own in Aurum. I did not fight a war just to leave it vacant.
Me: But you're always sailing, you leave it vacant all the time!
Leaf: That's not by choice! The sea calls me. You wouldn't understand.
Me: Try me!
Leaf: You know what piracy is like? It's not about the plunder, treasure, taking lives--that's...that's what people want to see...and they started to view us as criminals. It's about adventure, it's a passion, a love for the sea that's unending. We are born with this, and to ignore it is to go mad...
Me: *unsure of what to do now that Leaf had his moment*
That probably wasn't seven questions, but Leaf get's impatient! *crosses arms*.
Now, I'll pass this sweet thing on to 5 new followers!
Julius Cicero (epic name!!)
Check out these wonderful blogs! Please. lol.
Now, I've decided to begin this thing called Inspiration Mondays, basically it will be a collage of quotes, photos, videos, whatever is inspiring to me (and hopefully to you). I'm very excited to begin this! And I think we all need a little extra boost on Mondays as it is. I hope you'll stop by and see them!
