Beautiful People || Friendship


Beautiful People is a link-up hosted by Cait from Paper Fury and Sky from Further Up and Further In where writers answer questions about their books/characters.

It’s time for another Beautiful People! This time the theme is friendship, and as I love friendship I couldn’t miss this one!

I’ll be answering these questions for Rose, Ashelle and Damien, three of the main teens of my WIP The Army of Quermo.

1. How long have they known each other, and how close are they?

They have known each other since they were babies, as Rose and Ashelle’s mothers were best friends. Rose and Damien were brought together by Egbert, as the Council knew they were the next generation of Chosen Ones. Through Rose Ashelle and Damien also became friends. They are extremely close and share everything (though Ashelle of course doesn’t know about their demon fighting duties at first). They know each other almost as well as they know themselves and joke around constantly.

2. What’s their earliest memory of being best friends?

One of their earliest memories is when Sophie (another main character) steals Ashelle’s Barbie in Kindergarten, so Rose pushes her and Damien glares at her for the rest of the day. No one makes their best friend cry.

3. Do they fight? How long do they typically fight for?

Yes, but they usually talk it out pretty fast (though not without yelling).

4. Are their personalities similar or do they compliment each other?

Ashelle is very lively and cheerful, while Damien is more calm (though he does joke). Rose is like a mix of both of them, it depends on her mood. In this way they all compliment each other.

5. Who is the leader of their friendship (if anyone)?

No one.

6. Do they have any secrets from each other?

Well… At first Rose and Damien keep a rather big one from Ashelle… (see question 1).

7. How well do they know each other’s quirks and habits?

Very well. They’ve been around each other pretty much their entire live, so they know every little thing about each other (which of course can be a little exhausting at some times, as it’s always noticed when one of them is angry, annoyed, tired, sad etc. and thus it’s hard to keep things to themselves).

8. What kind of things do they like to do together?

Movie marathons or going to the movies, going out for ice cream or hot chocolate and other good snacks, talking about everything and nothing, shopping (Rose and Ashelle), karaoke (again Rose and Ashelle, though Damien is almost always dragged along) to  name a few things!

9. Describe each character’s fashion style (use pictures if you’d like!) How are their styles different/similar?

Rose’s fashion style

Ashelle’s fashion style

Ashelle’s clothing style is crazier and more colourful than Rose’s. It’s also important to Rose that she can fight in whatever she’s wearing.

Damien’s fashion style

10. How would their lives be different without each other?

If Rose and Damien didn’t know each other, that would mean they weren’t The Chosen Ones, meaning their lives would be a lot more peaceful and saver. Damien would be living in Amsterdam and Rose’s parents would be alive. If they weren’t friends with Ashelle their lives wouldn’t be that drastically different (though if Rose and Damien were friends and thus The Chosen Ones, Ashelle’s life would be very different and less dangerous), though it would be a bit boring.

And that was it for today’s post! If you want to find out more about these characters, click on ‘writing’ in the menu and then on ‘The Chosen Ones’.

  1. AHHH THIS WAS GREAT! I love those collages (and Ashelle’s is slightly zany and quirky XD) and that is so cool that they’ve known each other for nearly forever. I loooove friendship stories like that.
