Name: Naomi Elizabeth Walters

Age: 18

Appearance: Black hair that's stick-straight and down to her shoulders. She's pretty tan. Her eyes are green-ish in the middle, but fade to brown around the edges. Either normal-sized lips or thin lips. (Hehe.) Let's say she's almost 5'10". She doesn't really have any issues with her body, but she doesn't show it off. She loves sweats, T-shirts and tank tops. She does have a slightly strange arch to her back though.

Things you know about the character so far: Not a lot. She hates most mainstream music, like I do. She's left handed, so she always has graphite smears on her hand. Her handwriting is also unique because it slants to the left. (Random, I know.) She loves fantasies and fairytales. She's the kind of girl that goes to a football game for the social aspect but still cheers for her team when they score. She has three younger siblings, and one of them calls her Nay-Nay. Hehe. A tad superstitious. She's a flip-flop in the winter kind of girl. She sticks her thumbs in her pockets a lot. She loves laughing, but she gets into arguments a little easily and can be pretty defensive.

Things you know about the character's past: Virtually nothing. She just got out of a nasty relationship where a guy asked her out as an April Fool's joke to see how long he could keep it going. (I know. Jerk. ZJARK!)

Where you think the character will end up: Either dead or wishing she was.

What you want help with: Quirks and personality, mainly. I'd like to give her some physical and emotional flaws, and some past would be helpful. I feel like most of my female characters are the same.

Does she have any family/people she cares about? Friends?

message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

She has three younger siblings, and I'm figuring out her friends right now. I know one friend is named Rachel.

message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Is she a preppy person?

message 5: by [deleted user] (new)


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Normal? Nerd? Goth?

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

She's somewhere in the middle. I don't like giving my characters labels, usually, so she's... she's just Naomi.

message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Ok, that's kul. Is she superstish?

message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Hmm, she could be. That would be fun to write!

message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

XP What does she want to do once she's older?

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

Maybe I'll have her want to work with special-needs kids. I have two sisters that do that, so...

Sorry. I couldn't resist.
She needs a friend named Cassie too.

Maxy, I'm getting down on my knees and begging you to never make one of your protagonists a prep. I would be unable to read it if you did.

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Queen...what a band, what a band.

message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

Maybe she loves Queen.

message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

*gasps like a freaking maniac* YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! And she should think that Freddie Mercury was hot with a moustache. (No, I'm kidding, although it did suit him.)

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

He actually did look fine with a mustache. (I don't care which kind of fine you decide that is.)

message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

I think it was fi-ine *wink*.

Too bad he was gay.

message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

She should love Cheez-its!

I'm glad you could too. XD

message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes, this is all just swell, but does she agree with me that Freddie Mercury looked spicey with a moustache and it's a pity he was gay and is now dead?

message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Indeed she does.
