Beautiful People August + Aesthetics + Character sketches

I’ve seen this monthly link-up many times over the past months, but I’ve never really taken part. However, I have once written out an entire post and then not posted it… Anyway, today I’m going to answer some questions for this link-up created by Cait from Paper Fury and Sky from Further Up And Further.

This monthly meme is a writing-related Q&A and you can find an explanation of what it is and how to join here! The idea is that you answer the given questions for your characters! If you missed my writing updates and explanation of what my current writing project is about, I’ll quickly catch you up.

It’s called Our Shattered Minds. It’s about four outcasts: an assassin who loves playing with other’s hearts (Emery), a blacksmith who just wants to be left alone (Felton), a nanny with anger issues (Noa) (I hate the word nanny almost as much as Noa does xD) and a wanderer running from his past (Brim). They live in a world with magic, but it’s rare and special. They all hide their powers, which are blood, fire/smoke, seeing the future, and electricity respectively. People with magic have been disappearing and an underground rebellion arises, and all four of them get caught up in different ways. This is where their stories come together.


What are they addicted to/can’t live without?

Noa: Noa “needs” to escape her life by being in nature.
Brim: He’s low-key addicted to playing cards.
Emery: She needs to be in control.
Felton: Felton is pretty balanced, he doesn’t really need much?

Name 3 positive and 3 negative qualities about your character.

Noa: + honest, independent, creative
– short tempered, chaotic, needy
Brim: + clever, compassionate, trustworthy
– weak (physical), unconfident, anxious
Emery: + outspoken, confident, charming
– violent, deceitful, kills people for a living (I find that to be a very negative quality :P)
Felton: + mature, funny, well-spoken
– selfish, rigid, quiet

Are they holding onto something they should get rid of?

Not really.

If 10 is completely organized and 1 is completely messy, where do they fall on the scale?

Noa: 9
Brim: 5
Emery: 3
Felton: 3

What most frustrates them about the world they live in?

Noa: Everything. Seriously.
Brim: Magic.
Emery: Sexism.
Felton: How unfair it is.

How would they dress for a night out? How would they dress for a night in?

Noa: Noa would love to wear a princessy gown but does not have the money for it so she’d probably try to find something slightly fancy, or go with her normal look of jeans and a shirt.
Brim: He would wear the same thing in both situations: pants, shirt and a black cloak, but for going out he’d wear a little more fancy shirt so he wouldn’t stand out.
Emery: For a night out: a fancy dress: long with beading, a half-long cloak or her black coat, hair done up, heels. For a night in: Emery doesn’t spend many nights indoors, so probably just a dress but a less fancy one or PJs.
Felton: Felton really just wears the same thing every day: green overalls and leather shoes. He doesn’t even own a coat.

How many shoes do they own, and what kind?

Noa: only 2 probably, one pair of dark ankle boots and a pair of trainers-ish kind of shoes.
Brim: 2, I don’t know what kind.
Emery: 5 or more? Mainly heels, some high boots and a pair of black army boots.
Felton: 1, the kind of lace-up walking boots, but then leather.

Do they have any pets? What pet do they WISH they had?

Noa: None and she doesn’t really want any I think. She likes cats though.
Brim: He would love a horse and he has owned horses for his travels but everyime he arrives at a new city he sells it to be able to afford a house.
Emery: None.
Felton: A kitten (and he didn’t want them but now he loves the thing)

Is there something or someone that they resent? Why and what happened?

I cannot tell you but all of them resent so much. Their pasts are so dark and I don’t want to reveal what happened.

What’s usually in their fridge or pantry?

There are no fridges haha so pantries it is.

Noa: I think it’s pretty much empty, maybe some left-over pieces of chocolate she cherishes.
Brim: I dunno it’s not filled yet since he only just moved in.
Emery: baking equipment, a lot of ingredients for making cakes and pastries.
Felton: just some food, you know…



For some reason there are a lot of hands, that’s just random haha




Okay, they’re not amazing or anything but I like them and they took me two days so they better be worth it haha


From left to right: Noa, Brim, Felton, Emery.



You can find my aesthetics on weheartit and pinterest, which I have been obsessing over for the last weeks. I also have a lot of other aesthetic boards for other story ideas I might one day write but probably will never happen because I don’t have time to write every single story! I have too many stories in my head and too little time to write them all!

How’s writing going with you? I’ve barely written anything, oops, but I’m trying. I spent more time on pinterest and drawing then I’ve spent on actually writing!
