Be Terribly Good in My Story, or fall

He’s witty, attractive, energetic, and just the right amount of insane. When we first met, somewhere between “Becoming Sweettooth” and “The Darker Fringes”, I was certain that my story couldn’t happen without him.

Alas (don’t you just love saying “alas” aloud and then sighing?). Anyhoo, I was wrong…

…still, letting him go pains me deeply.

He is quite the wonder at the (not always appreciated) art of torturing others while grinning sweetly. But not terribly useful in the tale that birthed him. And goodness knows that no story can survive the effects of a useless character (regardless of how gifted said character might be at making others scream in ear-catching ways).

I am going to put him (and his, um… tools) in a virtual box. Nicely locked. Mayhap, one day, I’ll think up a dark, bloody (and properly maniacal) love story just for him.

I Hear Fictional Poets

We are one third of the way there, my Wicked Luvs, can you believe it? Incredulity is filling me, too. I feel like I have already shared at least 73.6 poems. Seriously; I am collecting more and more justification for my personal rule of not blogging every day (which I obviously broke for this event). I’m proud of you and of me, too, for I know how much work this is. Deliciously satisfying work, though…

For Day 11 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Create a poem written from the point of view of a fictional character. Do cite the work where the character appears. That way, we can wink at her, him, it… if we wish to.
