Natasha | 42 comments I was curious because after alot of seriousness in my series I decided to stick one of my bad a$$ main characters with a brat of a ward, and the kid wraps his charger in plastic wrap, then puts flakes of stirofoam in his vent so when he turns the car on it 'snows' over him. Anyone do somethign like that?

lol. hmm ... i'll have to think about that one.

Paige Miller *ponders evil things I've done*

I'm actually pretty nice to my characters...

Oh, wait, I've got it. Well, it wasn't really funny, but I made a forest catch fire while my MC was having her first kiss so it kind of ruined the cheesy-ness of the moment.

But it really wasn't that funny.

Lol I made a total fool of my character in Fyre.
But . . . it's sorta wierd. So she's like this whole villainy, goth, powerful type person, and she puts on a white and pink dress and everyone makes fun of her. *shrugs* That's about as bad as it gets.

Riley (booksarecool) Uh . . . Poor Circira, I turn her green, and do a lot of more awful things to her.

Kenzie | 2838 comments Hmm ... well, Trent burns everything he cooks. IDK if that's really funny, though....

OH! Andrea dumped Daniel's dinner on him when she got PO-ed, and then topped it off with some diet coke.

LOL Ah... that was an amusing moment.

GO VINCE!!!

(sorry, sorry random side note)

Hmmm, probably the worst thing that I've done to any of my characters was make her see a dead man and then lose total control of her body, then later on in the story... she erm, gets drunk and sleeps with the man that she hates, then five months later, figures out that she's pregnant. I'M SORRY CONSTANCE IT HAD TO BE DONE! IT WAS PART OF THE STORY! DON'T BLAME ME!!! *eyes widen in fear* CONSTANCE!!! PUT THAT BASEBALL BAT DOWN NOW!!! *mutters* oh sh** *runs away frantically, shouting* YOU REALLY SHOULDN'T BE RUNNING AT THIS SORT OF SPEED! IT MIGHT BE BAD FOR THE BABY!!!


message 11: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments "GO VINCE!!!"? What?

Okay....

LOL, Roni! RUN!! Constance, you're hurting the baby!

THAT was hilarious.

Margaret | 49 comments i made my MC run through a a really dry cornfield at night with sparkly, delicate flats on her feet. so there's all the rocks and dust and stuff... it amuses me to put my charries in painful situations... ^.^

Tink it WAS hilarious!! haha XD


message 18: by Natasha (new)

Natasha | 42 comments lol...ya I'm usually really mean to my characters. they've been beaten, tortured and such...and that's on a good day. I had fun with the prank stuff though, it was a fresh change. I kept giggling thinking of my hot man grabbing the kid like Homer does to Bart in the simpsons (ofcourse he didn't but it was an amusing thought) ;)


message 19: by Carole (new)

Carole B (caroleaburkett) | 127 comments Just a few days ago I wrote a scene where my main, tomboyish character ties the laces of her corset together and puts them around a bedpost, then walks away, to tighten her corset, because no one is around to do it for her. She passes out on the floor. It's very entertaining because she's usually so independent, it was hilarious. Oh, and then her sister's gentlemen friends come up and see her sprawled on the floor, unconscious. It's great.

now i feel like my writing is so empty of humor ... idk. I guess Injection has a few funny moments, but I feel like, for the most part, my writing's pretty gloomy. lol


message 22: by Carole (new)

Carole B (caroleaburkett) | 127 comments I used to think I was completely incapable of writing humor, but I experimented with a couple stories (see Lou, not Louise, and A Large World{tacky title, I knows}) that I really let my twisted, crazy sense of humor through, and it's easier now.


message 23: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller LOL Yeah I think my characters can be funny (like Raven) but my stories aren't really that funny.


message 24: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ | 5857 comments Mod

Yeah, same here. My writing isn't really funny...

Brigid, there were a lot of parts in Injection that were hilarious...seriously, I was cracking up whenever Danika said something really funny. XD Plus Alyx's sarcasm made me smile. :D OMG, but the funniest thing ever- “Ohmigosh, this is awesome! You guys are going to have such cute babies!” I couldn't stop laughing. XD


message 28: by Roni, What the neck!? (new)

Roni (v_a_b) | 2889 comments Mod
LOL sounds funny.

My writing tends to be more serious, as I tend to have stuff that is 3/4 realistic fiction with, well, I guess a bit of fantasy, because it the realistic fiction has an unreal element to it. Like Kurt. mmm, I like Crazy Kurt. Well, I like how he became Crazy. Sort of...

Actuyally, that's probably the worst thing that I've ever done to a character, and that is the climax of the story. I'm thinking.... OMG!!!!
