Character dialogue and development, along with plot ideas. This is basically just a massive charrie and dialogue dump for me, myself, and I.


Ye.

Prairie: This character has a generally happy and positive outlook on life, and is relatively innocent. However, this character has a rather questionable morality and is fond of disproportionate retribution.

"Okay, look. We get it, you're alone, and scared, and you've probably been ignored for all of  your life. I get it, that sucks. But see, you can take your Freudian excuse, and kind of just shove it straight up your butt, because your tragic backstory doesn't change the fact that you are a horrible person who does horrible things. And so, with that said, EN GUARDE fvckboy" (Because I spend too much time on Tumblr)

Okay  so, Prairie uses lots and lots of pauses to emphasize her points in speaking. That said, she's fond of transition words and choppy sentence structures. She's also kinda childish.


Drosera, as  a result of her wealthy upbringing, has eloquence in her speech, using long, elaborate sentence structures and unecessary substitutions for everyday words to make herself seem intelligent. She enjoys using her exceptional vocabulary for verbal annihilation via sarcasm.


Aria's pretty chill. She's laid back, casual. Her speech pattern seems kinda lazy, haha. I dunno, I guess that's just how she is, man.


Sparky speaks really simple! And she's really enthusiastic about what she says! She doesn't use huge words, but she's only six. It makes sense!

Then there's Green. He's short and concise with words, occasionally stuttering when upset or nervous. Although he shows some form of sophistication in his speech, he isn't nearly as eloquent as Drosera. He's simple when it comes to speaking.


Legion's speech is clearly staccato. Her words are straight to the point. Her voice has a cold, authoritarian tone.

I might do more later. :P

Green speaks like a protagonist from a YA book. But not a John Green book.

Mismatched House

You're invited to a party. Every hour, an invitee dies of a mysterious cause. The deaths grow more gruesome as time marches on. Meanwhile, the furniture in the house changes each hour, along with the number of rooms in the house. 

Plot twist: Each room is made up of a dead person, decorated in their own style.

A culture derived from eloquence, knowledge, and intelligence. The richest, most powerful people have the highest vocabularies. Criminals have their tongues removed.

An elite, cannibalistic society in which high-class people pay money to eat "exclusive, gourmet food".

Which is poor people.

It's messed up, yeah.

A young girl who lives in a living mansion. The mounted heads upon the living room walls are alive, the carpets are made of grass, the stained-glass butterflies in the third floor bathroom are actually just great at mimicry.

Hyacinth rolled to the side, barely evading a spiral of fervid flames that would have otherwise immolated her.

"That's hardly fair, bringing a flamethrower to a swordfight," she muttered bitterly, leaping onto a large rock. The words left a sour taste in her mouth, for it foreshadowed an inevitable loss.

"Now then, where were we?" - Hyacinth (patient undertones, implications of consideration of other people's feelings)

"Shall we resume?" - Drosera (domineering undertones, implications of arrogance, may sound sarcastic or bored)

"My stars," she breathed, "you're alive."

He returned an empty stare before releasing a long, heavy sigh. "Aye, I suppose."

She stopped dead in her tracks, the light of excitement fading from her eyes as she studied his cold, hard face. "What have they done to you?" she whispered softly, crestfallen. "What... have they done..."

The boy shrugged, turning away.

At that moment, she knew he was gone. She had to learn to accept it. After all, it was unheard of for anyone to emerge from a war without casualties.
