I looooved Explorers of Time/Darkness and while I didn't even play Gates of Infinity (I saw some playthroughs and didn't like what I say), I'm still hyped. Maybe they'll make it great this time? Maybe it'll have a really great story and characters? What are your thoughts?

Character Development Meme - Grace Lockhart

  Some context...Grace is a Pokemon Trainer in the Kalos region. She earns all eight Gym badges but doesn't challenge the League; instead she snags an internship with Professor Sycamore and goes on to research Legendary Pokemon.

  Grace is smart and a little quieter than some, but only because she's contemplative, not shy. Physically she's fairly pretty and is aware of that (she'll take compliments with a "thank you" rather than a "omg no I'm not"). She's a pretty private person and will only share things that she feels are important. Her book smarts help her strategize well during battling. She enjoys nature and photography (often combining the two), music, reading, etc. She's confident in her own abilities but doesn't take losing or criticism very well.

  Grace is very girly and doesn't really like sports or video games. Physically she's not very strong and not very fast (though she can jog at a steady pace for long distances.)

  1.) Describe your character’s relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?

   Grace was the very ideal daughter -- she's very smart and got really good grades, so her parents presumed that she was going to go to a nice college somewhere. She surprised everyone by taking the Trainer route instead, at least for a year or two before going on to a different profession.

   Her parents weren't exactly upset about it but they weren't entirely pleased either so they've been a bit distant since then. However, they all still love each other and the parents still support their daughter when she needs it.

  2.) What are your character’s most prominent physical features?

   Probably her hair and eyes; her eyes are a very pretty light green and her hair is pretty long and wavy and thick, so it stands out.

   3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don’t have any, is there a reason?

   Grace doesn't have any scares or marks that would be of significance because even as a child she was a pretty careful walker. She never did like tumbling around on the ground a lot so she avoided a lot of the childhood scrapes :P

   4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?

   Grace is pretty and she knows it, so in that sense you could say she's a little vain. She takes great care to look nice but she doesn't think of herself as better than anyone because of it. Genetics are a lottery and she know she just got lucky :P

   5.) What’s your character’s ranking on the Kinsey Scale?

   Probably around a 1

   6.) Describe your character’s happiest memory.

   Winning her last Gym badge or seeing her Pokemon evolve, probably!

   7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?


   8.) Day of Favorites! What’s your character’s favorite ice cream flavor? Color? Song? Flower?

   Ice cream flavor: Vanilla

   Color: Turquoise

   Song: Can I do musical genre? She likes contemporary, indie and Taylor Swift xD

   Flower: Tigerlily

   9.)  Who does your character trust?

   Her parents, her Pokemon and probably some of her closest friends. She hasn't really had a reason NOT to trust people.

   10.) Can you define a turning point in your character’s life? Multiples are acceptable.

   Probably when she made the decision to be Trainer before going to college or anything else. Up until then she had been on the path to high success, so making the decision to follow a less academic route was a surprise to everyone around her.

   11.) Is there an animal you equate with your character?

   Grace would probably be a deer! Mainly because I think of deer as being pretty tranquil animals and tranquil would be a good word to describe Grace.

   12.) How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?

   She's savvy enough to work her phone but not savvy enough to fix it if she breaks it. She likes the idea of sending letters ("they're so romantic" she thinks) but the undeniable convenience of digital correspondence wins her over every time.

   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?

  Hmmm, Grace is pretty still during the night so her covers won't be too messed up. She makes it the first thing in the morning when she wakes up. She probably sleeps on her back or side.

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

   Grace doesn't like any sudden change of temperature (who does?) but usually will use it as a chance to dress fashionably accordingly.

   15.) Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl?

   Early bird! She likes to stay up late too but often (especially when on her journey) she likes to get up to watch the sunrise and have some time to herself before everyone gets up.

   16.) Are there any blood relatives that your character is particularly close with, besides the immediate ones? Cousins, Uncles, Grandfathers, Aunts, et cetera. Are there any others that your character practically considers a blood relative?

  Tbh I haven't thought this through yet lol

   17.) What’s your character’s desk/workspace look like? Are they neat or messy?

   Grace is pretty organized. Sometimes if she's busy she'll let her workspace start to get into disarray but she'll usually find time to tidy it up again before it gets too bad.

   18.) Is your character a good cook? What’s their favorite recipe, whether they’re good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)

   Grace is competent enough to cook a few meals for herself or other people, but it's not really anything she's super skilled at.

   19.) What’s your character’s preferred means of travel?

   As a Trainer, Grace usually goes places by foot -- she loves skating over bike riding, though, and really likes flying.

   20.) Does your character have any irrational fears?

   Bugs maybe?? Idk idk

   21.) What would your character’s cutie mark be?

   hmmm idk idk

   22.) If your character could time travel, where would they go?

   Probably somewhere with a lot of aesthetic appeal -- Victorian era or something. Forget about all the political stuff happening then!

  23.) Is your character superstitious?

   Grace is aware that there's probably unseen forces around but she doesn't put a lot of thought into thinking about it. She'd probably freak out a little if she saw a ghost though.

   24.) What might your character’s ideal romantic partner be?

   Someone smart, certainly, and someone who can make her laugh. He'd preferably be taller than her xD She probably needs someone who could keep her grounded before she gets too cocky or something.

   25.) Describe your character’s hands. Are they small, long, calloused, smooth, stubby?

   Grace has slender hands that were fairly smooth prior to being a Trainer. Understandably they've gotten a little rougher.

   26.) Second day of favorites! Favorite comfort food, favorite vice, favorite outfit, favorite hot drink, favorite time of year, and favorite holiday.

   Comfort food: Cake


   Outfit: Something cute and girly...probably that high-waisted starter outfit from the game.

   Hot drink: Tea

   Time of year: Summer

   Holiday: Easter

   27.) Pick two songs that describe your character at two different points of their life, and explain why you chose them.

   I haven't fleshed her out enough to think of these ;;

   28.) If your character’s life was a genre, what would it be?

   Classic or fairytale maybe??

   29.) How does your character smell? Do they wear perfume or cologne?

   Hmm...Grace doesn't use perfume except on occasion, but she uses strawberry shampoo/conditioner so if you got close to her you might be able to smell that :P

   30.) Name three adjectives that best describe your character.

   Smart, thoughtful, confident
Character Development Meme - Grace Lockhart
SO basically I was playing my Pokemon Y game again and I made a new player character and I started making a character for her ;; I'd like to draw her soon but for now this screenshot from Geosenge will have to do xD

I don't think I'll actually make a story for her or anything but it's fun imagining a fleshed-out character while playing the game :'D

This is the same template as…
cover journal woo

I'm almost done with  high school. Just a few more weeks and I'm graduating. It's a weird feeling x_x

Also, I'm determined to write a story before I head to college! I'm hoping for it to be the story about Piper (my Pokemon Mechanic OC) but I hit a wall with it awhile back so maybe I'll revisit it and see what I can do.

As far as schoolwork goes, I have all the main stuff done -- it's the home stretch from here on out. The last month or so has been crazy with college prep stuff and finishing up school-related things but I think it's going to calm down a little now, which I'm ready for.

That's it! Another pointless journal entry. :P
