The lovely Kat @ Life and Other Disasters has created another awesome writing tag, this time Valentine’s Day themed (Happy Valentine’s Day btw love you all)! Thank you so much for tagging me Kat ❤ If you’re not familiar with her blog please go check it out!
💛 Thank the person who tagged you but also link back to the original post! (I want to see all your lovely answers, people!)
💛 Provide a short description of your WIP/story!
💛Don’t use just one character for all answers if possible!
DESCRIPTION OF MY WIP
Yong-sun An is worried about a lot of things, but at the top of his list? The future. Worried his anxiety will get in the way of everything he does, he has no clue what he’ll do after graduation. If he even graduates. Because that’s another thing he worries about. Not that his grades are bad, far from it, but one time it’s bound to go wrong, right?
Meanwhile, his not-best friend (except he is his best friend) Drew suddenly starts to act weird. Yong-sun has no idea how to help, but he has a feeling that it has to do with the mysterious text messages Drew has been getting.
As I said before in the All Hallows Write Tag and the Winter is Here Write Tag, this summary is not complete, but I really like what I have so far. What you need to know besides this summary: there are two other main characters, Reyna and Hye-su. They are Yong-sun’s other friends. One day I’ll write the perfect summary that also includes them.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
If there is a couple in your WIP, what are their plans for Valentine’s Day? And if there is no couple in your WIP, is there someone your main character would like to spend Valentine’s Day with?
There is a couple in my WIP, but they get together later on and I guess it’s kinda spoilery? So I’ll be a bit vague. One of them would be incredibly cheesy and get a huge bouqet of roses, a huge bear and chocolates, while the other just gets embarrassed and throws a more personal gift at his head*
* Obviously not literally
Who has no shame about going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day alone?
Reyna. 100% Reyna. She has no shame when it comes to a lot of things and just generally has this ‘idgaf’ attitude. Not that she doesn’t give one at all, but definitely not about Valentine’s Day.
One of your characters requests a song on the radio for their crush! Which song and for which character would they pick it?
I had trouble choosing between Reyna and Drew, but Drew wouldn’t actually dare to request a song on the radio (though he’d pretend he would)- he’d just blast it himself out of his crush’ window. Reyna on the other hand would definitely request a song on the radio and she’d pick Mary Lambert’s I’d Be Your Wife. And who’d they pick it for?
Is there a character who would organise an Anti-Valentine’s Day party?
I can see Reyna throw a Galentine’s party, which can sort of be an Anti-Valentine’s Day party I guess. Though considering she’d invite her crush it would kind of still be a Valentine’s Day party
Reyna @ herself
What romantic gesture would swoon your main character?
It really doesn’t take much tbh – like one rose and the boy is a blushing mess
an accurate representation of Yong-sun
Which character would buy a bunch of red roses and hand them out to strangers on the street, just to make their day?
Hye-su without a doubt. She’s just smol cinnamon roll
What are your main character’s favourite Valentine’s movies? (Note: Valentine’s movies don’t have to be romantic!)
Okay so my WIP takes place in 2015 but can we just go to the future* and say Love, Simon because I can’t think of any other Valentine’s movie that Yong-sun would like
* I wish I could just go to the future pls I need to see this movie now
Who is ready for the February 15th, just to get all the chocolate on sale?
Without a doubt: Drew. Boy loves food, especially candy and especially chocolate
an accurate representation of Drew
Is there a character who never spends Valentine’s Day alone aka always has some sort of date?
Nope – unless we count some of their parents lol
Bonus: Create a Valentine’s Day aesthetic for one or several of your characters!
So uhh I got a bit carried away and created a Valentine’s Day aesthetic for all four of my main characters haha. In order: Yong-sun, Drew, Hye-su and Reyna
Thank you again Kat for creating such a fun tag! Every time I do one of these I get to know my characters a little better and love them even more than I already did, so of course I’m grateful for that!
