Character Sheet Template (Updating)
Deathday (if they are dead):
Most prized possession:
It has been a long time since my last post and that was not the easiest time for me. The trouble is, naturally, in my wretched computer which this time catched a virus that ciphered and erased all my data!.. Everything - all my pictures, all the requests of yours I started to make, all notes and documents, all music and videos - everything! And my stories! Not a single page left, and no notes because I kept them all in digital - I should have written at least something in the old-fashioned pencil-and-paper way! And now all that has left to me is my memory. I say, it feels a bit crazy to think that henceforth I do not have the right to forget even a slightest detail of any of my numerous stories because there is nothing to count on besides myself…
Please forgive the exclamation marks, it is just that even now, three months later, I still cannot speak calmly about this.
But on the lighter note, I would like to return to DeviantArt which I missed all the time and where I missed a lot of things. You see - experience can teach - I do not tell I hope or I expect or I promise, only I would like to. But as of now, it is nice to be here again.
1. What are your two OC Characters names?
One my favourite romantic OC couples ever! The one called ' a perfect couple'.
I would like to write a story about them one day, so I would not want to spoil it by giving away the names. Let us just make sure that they are he and she.
2. Nice names. So are they going out or is it unrequited love?
Well, it depends on the moment, but eventually they do end up together.
3. I see. So how did they meet? And how long ago?
Again, 'how long ago' depends on the time you mean as the starting point. As for 'how', it was quite a banal acquaintance actually. He was a friend of her brother who one day invited him to stay at his parents' house and naturally introduced him to his relatives and siblings.
4. Have they ever gone on a date? If not what would happen.
No, they have never gone on 'a date' in the modern meaning. You see, that was not a practice yet at their time. In fact, they did not even embrace each other before the wedding.
5. The guy kneels down and asks her to marry him, what happens?
This is a sketch I made a while ago, had to replace some pronouns. And keep in mind that it is a romantic couple.
Suddenly he left his seat and kneeled down in front of her.
'' [her name], whatever you would think of me afterwards, I cannot help saying it. I need that you knew how deeply and sincerely I love you –''
'' Oh... Indeed?'' She was completely overwhelmed. At the next time, she felt the world around turning upside down. However, probably this time it turned into the right position...
'' It is as true as that breathing keeps human body alive. But there is no true life without hope. For me, during these long months it was the hope to see you again. I ask for nothing but your indulgence. My only wish is not to lose your benevolence, so I beg you to forgive my untimely expressions, which you are evidently not glad to listen to –''
'' Oh no, I am not! – I mean – Actually I –'' she had an amazing feeling of unreal, her thoughts messed, she wanted to cry and laugh at the same time. Not the best state for, as she realized, the most important moment in her life. She took a breath to calm down and felt sudden resoluteness.
'' Actually I am very glad to listen to these words,'' she said, surprised at how easy it turned out to voice her mind. '' I cannot describe how much happy I am now to listen to the words I could only dream of hearing –''
'' Is it true?'' he asked. She looked at his face where hope and joy mixed in a wonderful way; it seemed it was shining with inner light. For one queer moment, she thought that angels must have so light and pure faces...
'' Yes, it is true,'' she answered smiling.
'' There are no words to express my feelings,'' he whispered.'' I feel like my heart is ready to burst out... But they say one cannot die of happiness –''
He took her arm very gently as if it was porcelain, kissed it and pressed to his forehead. She felt a need to speak her thoughts.
'' It seems to me now,'' she said, ''that I found some integral part of myself. I did not know before how much I missed it, but now everything took its place –.''
'' The same I feel,'' he echoed. ''Save for me having realized it from the very day of our acquaintance, when you entered the room – and my life. I cannot live without you! So it would be the greatest honour and happiness to me if you agreed to share your life with me.''
'' I agree... and it is very kind of you,'' she added, at last having managed to recall what one should say in such case. And she smiled again on the thought that once in a blue moon, she did not mind following the etiquette rules!.. For few moment it seemed to her that she did not care for the whole world, for nothing except for the man near her and his hand holding hers and his wonderful eyes looking at her with such softness and tenderness that she wanted to cry of happiness...
6. The guy is late for a date (or maybe just hanging out) what does the girl do?
As I said, they did not go to a date. Besides, he is not in the habit to be late in general.
7. They go to a movie, what type of movie do they go to and what happens?
As a matter of fact, cinema did not exist yet during their lifetime, so if they were to go somewhere together, that would most likely be a symphonic concert or opera, or at least a theatrical play.
8. Is there much of an age gap?
He is six years older, but it does not feel as an age gap. I would say he is a bit more mature and serious, but it is because of the peculiarities of his education, not age.
9. What type of relationship do they have with each other?
The most romantic one you can imagine. She loves him very much, and in his turn, he is passionately in love with her, to the point that some people can take as an obsession.
10. Is there anything separating them from each other?
Hmm, I would say no, if you mean any serious disagreement.
11. What song describes their relationship the best?
''Only you'' by Sinead O'Connor, the song that plays during the credits of ''The Young Victoria'' film.
Also here is a nice video of it featuring the scenes from the film.
What I would like to point out, this song describes their emotional affection, not their social positions.
12, Great choice. So anyway one day the girl is really upset and is crying in a dark room, what does the guy do?
Well, he would of course sit beside her, embrace her tenderly and ask carefully about the reason of her sorrow, in one word, to make everything to comfort and cheer her. But to be honest, the only time when she happened to be upset and cry in a dark room was because of him, and he was not there to comfort her. It was when she realised that she fell in love with him, but thought she had no chance to take place in his heart.
13. The guy is worried about someone close to them (please state, it can be the girl) What does the girl do to comfort him?
It depends on the cause of his worries. Yet he belongs to the people who believe worrying to be a waste of time and prefer to do something useful instead. However, she does not need to do anything special to comfort him, for her mere presence makes his spirit rise.
14, They get into an argument and the guy runs away, the girl follows him but he keeps running away what happens?
I hope any kind of argument is allowed, because this is the one that actually happened, some time after their wedding. The matter is in that he is the owner of about a dozen of factories producing different things (from food to furniture) and they settled it that for every new item, they choose names in turns. The same goes for the flower cultivars, as he is also an amateur selectionist. The point of the argument was in that he developed a new rose breed what he is eager to name after his wife's name. She is uneasy about that, but he insists on his chioce.
''No, thou will listen to me, [his name]!'' she cried as she quickened her pace. ''I am fairly sure that ''important business'' of thine may as well wait for a quarter of an hour. Thou will stop and listen, unless you want the whole household to learn what trifles we are arguing over... Or the manner we call each other,'' she added in a sudden fit of inspiration. The last remark hit its target; the steps in front of her stopped.
''All right, thou are right, [her name], my precious, we should discuss that in private,'' his voice was gentle as usual, but with a slight hint of weariness. ''Shall we take a seat then?''
''Sit or stay, it does not matter...'' she tried to object, but he took her arms in his, as just firmly as tenderly, and made them both sit down on a sofa.
''Now listen to me, my dearest,'' he continued in a tone of kind patience as if talking to a child. ''There is nothing to argue about. It is my right to decide on the names that fell to me. I do not interfere when it is thine turn to choose, and I would be immensely grateful if you let me to have the freedom of choice with mine ones.''
''But what thou do is too much already! I just – I do not want anything more featuring my name. There are thousands of things you can name a rose after! Why should it be named after me again?!''
''Because everything I do is inspired by thee and done for thee,'' he answered earnestly. ''Thou are my love and the essence of my life; and believe me, there is nothing wrong in my desire to memorialise thine name in my humble creations. I would like people to remember the love as true and great as ours one. Moreover, there is the chance that upon coming across the mentions of it every day, be it a flower cultivar, a dye or a pack of sweets, people would at least think over their own lives and perhaps may even want to change something to the better.''
''Why do you always win?'' She sighed, her vexation gone. As usual, she felt herself defenceless against the stare of these warm grey eyes, which, she knew, in the whole world watched only her with such tenderness...
15, Last question. They break up (or if its unrequited love, it is not answered). Who does the dumping and what happens?
The fact is, they do not break up but live happily ever after. At some point in the beginning of the story, each of them believes that his/her love is unrequited, but it is quite another matter, you know.
Frankly, I felt myself not quite easy at DeviantArt at first, since it is a site for true artists. And this is surely not about me.
But I have always enjoyed seeing other people' works. And later, with help of Photoshop, editing them according to my taste. So photomanipulation is "my everything".
I should apologise beforehand for the possible copyright violation, as far as some of stock items I am using now were found when I did not think about publishing my works yet and did not care about checking out the authors of content.
Thus I give credit and links to the people whom I can find.
In case if you see that I used in my works your pieces of arts that you posted at DeviantArt, please let me know and I will give you credit.
And another one thing.
If you see my deviation, give a comment please. It's very important for me to know what you think about it!
