A.G. Howard (aghoward) | 1618 comments Hi all! Somebody requested an interview with Alyssa, so I found this one from the Christmas in Wonderland Virtual Tour last December (http://authoraghoward.blogspot.com/20...).

Enjoy!

Q: Alyssa, describe yourself in five words.

A: Quiet, Stubborn, Curious, Suspicious, Loyal.

Q: I've heard you're an artist! Tell me about why you feel the need to create, and what inspires your art?

A: In the beginning, it was more survival tactic than inspiration that led me to kill and preserve bugs and flowers. But I felt guilty for cutting their lives short, so I decided if I did something constructive with their bodies … something that brought other people happiness … it could be justified. I also have landscapes in my mind, too strange and morbid to be earthly, but too haunting to dismiss. Making mosaics helps cleanse those images from my subconscious, so my head isn’t as cluttered.

Q: Can you describe your different relationships? I know you don't have a wide variety, but I've heard some very *erm* unique people make up your social circles.

A: Well, there’s my mom and dad, who are both amazing for the sacrifices they’ve made for me and one another. Even though Mom’s in an asylum, Dad has never given up pining for her or his dream that someday she’ll come home to us. I have the same hope, and we’ll both do whatever it takes to make that happen, although we don’t always see eye to eye how to go about it…

Jebediah Holt. My best friend. He helps me view the world through the eyes of an artist. To see beauty in sadness, and to find the goodness inside myself in spite of my screwed up life. He’s loyal, and honest. At least, mostly honest. I can’t blame him for hiding a few things from me, considering I’m hiding some really big secrets myself. Jeb is super protective, and there are times he tries to hold me back when I know I need to be leaping forward. But it comes from a place of sincere concern and affection. He spent a lifetime trying to protect his mom and sister, so it comes naturally to him. And I always know, without a doubt, he’s got my back. He’ll never let me down.

Jenera is Jeb’s sister and my other best friend. She’s a fashion designer in the making—talented, snarky, and tough as nails, but always there for me and sympathetic when I’m hurting. Probably because she’s so well-acquainted with pain herself.

Then there’s Morpheus, the magical guy twisted into a past I’ve lost track of, who lets me take chances … or more like hangs me out to dry and watches from a distance as I try to save myself. Maybe it gives him a perverse thrill to see me suffer. Or maybe he actually likes to see me excel on my own. That’s the thing with Morpheus. You never really know whose side he’s on or what his motivation is. But I have to admit, sometimes it’s nice to be turned loose do things for yourself and find strengths you didn’t know you had. Sometimes you want that challenge, and find yourself drawn to those who feed that desire. Even if your common sense says to stay as far away from them as possible…

Q: If you had three wishes, how would you spend them?

A:
1. Get my mom out of the asylum for good.
2. Be honest with Jeb about how I really feel then never keep secrets from him again.
3. Have the ability to read Morpheus’s mind.

Q: Can you tell me your darkest secret? Don't worry, it'll stay between us, I swear. *leans in*

A: *gulps* My darkest secret … is just that. Darkness. I’m drawn to it, and to chaos. They light a fire inside me. I want to hold that power in my hands, to control it, to use it for my own devices. A part of me envies Morpheus’s lack of inhibitions. His aptitude for selfishness. I sometimes wish I had the ability to throw caution and compassion to the wind, and just let the madness loose that lives inside me. *looks down and whispers* But I know that’s wrong, and it scares me to feel that way. I don’t want to end up like my mom.

ALYSSA IS AMAZING.


Kaede (kami178) | 41 comments Alyssa is quite amazing, I must agree.

I wonder if she's agreeable and negotiable too, and how she'll fair if I ask her to borrow Jeb for a long long while without returning.

CAUSE I WANT TOO.

Pretty please with cherry on top? x)

Haha! Kaede, Hannah and Nobonita have called dibs on him, too. Maybe the three of you should team up and kidnap the skater boy. Then you could work out a custody arrangement.

As long as I don't die in the fight - I MEAN, as long as I get a big portion of the sharing time.

WORLD, WE CALL DIBS ON JEB.

Tehehe. (;

And loyal. I love Jeb, but part of what makes him so great for Alyssa is his endless loyalty to her.

'If there were duplicates' because of course, the REST OF THE NORMAL HUMAN SKATER GUYS ON MOTORCYCLES are not anything like duplicates.
@Hannah
Morpheus is more lyal. Xl

((I just have to pick fights, don't I?))
