Countdown to Addergoole Year 9: Garfunkle, Belfreja, and Kay

52 37 Days To 52 Weeks

For the 52 days leading up to the 52 weeks of Addergoole: Year 9, I will be posting something Addergoole-related every day.

Today: parts of a character development meme!

7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?
When Gar was twelve, his (Step)mother’s brother came to live with them. His Uncle Jeremy was dying of liver failure, trying to stop drinking in a last-ditch attempt to save his own life, and he just couldn’t stop drinking.
The loss of self-control, and the loss of everything, in the long run, freaked Gar out. He had nightmares about his uncle flopped there on the couch, wasting away and still clutching the bottle. He still does. He said, at his uncle’s small and sad funeral, that he wished he’d never met Uncle Jeremy. His mother’s angry reaction to that cemented Gar’s desire to delete that event from his life
7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?
Bel is a generally very-friendly, sensual person, and, because she was an early bloomer and is a lush, beautiful girl, her friendliness has often been misinterpreted. In the last few years, she’s learned to moderate that, but before she did, a teacher, husband of another teacher, crossed the lines of propriety with her, looking first for a dance with her at a school function, and then for a kiss.
Although Bel, then fourteen, hadn’t been soliciting the attention, the teacher’s wife certainly thought she had and spent the remainder of the year angry at Bel and taking it out on her in her grades and discipline. What’s more, the principal, also a woman, sided with the teacher against Bel.
8.) Day of Favorites! What’s your character’s favorite ice cream flavor? Color? Song? Flower?
Kay likes Chocolate Mint ice cream.
Her favorite color is plum, with a second-favorite, accent, of slate blue (that’s purple and blue for guys)
“Youth of the Nation” is her favorite song. Irises are her favorite flower. When she plans her wedding with her friends, she imagines giant iris bouquets and her bridesmaids in long plum dresses.

Other parts of the meme can be found here and here.
