Yay yay yay first lesson!

As a first assignment, I'd like to get to know your individual styles. Nothing really serious or thorough, but hopefully fun. I'd like all of you to do this. All four of you.

Say you write a novel. Which of these would be your protagonist?









1. What would their name be?
2. Give a synopsis of their personality.
3. Write a physical description as it would appear in the story (don't try to be cute and say "B looks like Noomi Rapace!", an actual description).
4. (Optional) What would their situation/conflict be?
5. (Optional) Who is their love interest?

Who'd be MY Protagonist?! =O
Let's see XD
Guess I'll re-Post the list in my reply :3
For my protagonist I would chose:
Letter H.
Currently I've been wanting to write a story focusing on a boy at an all male Christian/Catholic school. He seems to fit my idea of the main character pretty well.

1. What would their name be?
Devin Shepard.
(Basically translated into: Divine Shepard)

2. Give a synopsis of their personality.
Devin is an all around good kid.
He's kind and helpful towards anyone he meets. He's reliable and hardworking when it comes to any job/task he's given.
Everyone who know's him would know he's basically a goody-two-shoe, but he doesn't let himself go enough.

3. Write a physical description as it would appear in the story.
Devin would stand 5ft 10in, not pudgy but still not skinny (somewhere in the middle). He has short, brown/blonde/sandy blonde hair and I guess I'll say...blue eyes.
He's commonly found only in his uniform,since he rarely ever leaves his campus for any reason.

4. (Optional) What would their situation/conflict be?
Devin is gay,plain and simple.
He's tried to deny it,and has dated girls his friends/father have recommended. While he had fun with them,none of them ever lit a spark in him as some men his age have.
Because of this,he's been restricting himself from having much fun with his friends,afraid someone may find out or something may happen to let people know.

5. (Optional) Who is their love interest?
A boy his age he saw in his dreams for a week straight.
He's the steryotypical tall,dark and handsome type who just happens to be German/Russian/whatever I decide to make him XD
He's highly intelligent, mysterious and to be honest,a total klutz. Seriously, this kid could be walking along the halls and cause a huge disaster if he's not careful,it's ridiculous.
Even so,when he's in a mood (angry,depressed,lustful,most likely anything besides happy),dear god,he gets a little terrifying.

So! There you have it!
Why have more of you not replied to this!?
Reply darn you! XD

Re: Who'd be MY Protagonist?! =O
Yay, thank you!

One nitpick, though... 3 is supposed to be in prose. Not your problem, I should have been more clear. For example (using D and generic placeholder names):

"If the women of Ruritania were supposed to be swans, Alice was a bull. She had the body of a soldier, tall, muscular, wide-shouldered. It was not a body fit for dresses, but for armor, and that suited Alice just fine. Likewise, she kept her dirty blond hair cut short. It was either that or stuffing her hair in a helmet, and she had found that too bothersome a long time ago. She had a plain face, neither particularly attractive or unattractive, but it was honest and spoke of good character."

That was quite sloppy, I apologize, but hopefully that clears it up. Thanks!

Re: Who'd be MY Protagonist?! =O
I was wondering about 3! XD
Should I re-write it or are we good? Lol XD

Also,that was cool for a quick prose. I was worried mine would be waaaay messier than that so I was like,nope,short description is best XD

You can re-write if you want, it's up to you. This was mostly a prompt to help me get to know the writing of people that I've never read before- I've read your writing before, so it's all good.
