Character Development Meme: Miryam, Llew, Nilam, Aeowyn

52 22 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!


12.) How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?
Miryam has a decent middle-of-the-way comfort zone with technology. She uses e-mail but can write letters; Addergoole’s field of slowing-down-communication encourages letter writing and she probably does send letters home. She has a computer and uses it, although she would need tech support if anything went majorly wrong. She can use all the basic home appliances, and doesn’t have a problem programming anything programmable, but prefers to let someone else handle

13) What does your character’s bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep?

Given his choice, Llew sleeps diagonally across the bed, in a rather still position that takes up the entire bed, or most of it. The covers, when he wakes are folded down halfway as he gets up, but long training by his mother means that he then folds them back up to the top.

He prefers to sleep with just a sheet and, in winter, a light blanket, so there’s not much to tidy anyway.

14.) How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold?

Nilam does not like the heat. He prefers the world a comfortable sixty-six degrees; Addergoole is already a little warm for him. Much about seventy-two F and he begins getting very uncomfortable; summertime finds him inside, hibernating, hiding from the heat.

He’s not a big fan of winter, either; the snow and damp and cold make him miserable. He’s really a bit of a delicate flower, wilting or breaking depending on the extreme.

15.) Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl?
Æowyn is definitely a night sort. Mornings are not her thing, and she wakes up grumpy and unpleasant until she’s had breakfast, a shower, and at least half an hour of silence.

Nights are where she shines, and she often stays up late, going to bed in the wee hours of the night. She does her best thinking then, and often completes her homework this way.
