Here's a tag concerning Pierce, Amber (whose name I am considering changing to Alexandra) and Gale, which anyone who reads the comments on www.worldofwhatnot.blogspot.com will have heard of.
1. Do you want a hug?
Amber: No, thanks.
Pierce: Um, if you want to, but I don't really know you.
Gale: If you don't mind, I'd rather not.
2. What's your favorite color?
Amber: Silver, I think. Or maybe indigo. I've never really stopped to think about it.
Pierce: Green. Forest Green.
Gale: Black. (No, he's not a goth or anything - he just happens to like that color.)
3. Do you love anyone?
Amber: That depends. In a family way or in a boy-girl way? The answer to the latter is no.
Pierce: Sure. My brother Gale.
Gale: Pierce. And maybe Amber. *Amber leaps out of her chair* NOT IN A BOY-GIRL WAY!!!
4. What's your job?
Amber: I'm a student, training to be a pilot.
Pierce: Same here, not that I'll ever be as good as Amber, but I can dream, right?
Gale: Training to be a pilot, like the others.
5. Favorite season?
Amber: Uh... they didn't have seasons at the training school. Outer space doesn't have them, generally.
Pierce: Probably summer.
6. Who is your best friend?
Amber: Uh... Pierce and Gale, I guess. There were no other girls at the academy. Before that... I'd have to say my friend Ani, who I haven't seen in who knows how long.
Pierce: Amber, I guess.
Gale: There was one older kid who's out of training... his name was Micheal. Haven't seen him in years, though.
7. What are your hobbies?
Amber: Training, I guess. That's what I do. Though I used to sing with a choir before I started training. I also like science and chemistry, though they're not my best subjects.
Pierce: I work out. Train. I like math too.
Gale: Inventing. Here, watch this gadget! *small metal object released fireworks. Everyone ducks* Still working through a few bugs with this one.
8. What are you going to do when this tag is over?
Amber: Do a flight simulation or something. Get a bite to eat, maybe. Catch up on homework.
Gale: Probably find a movie. Hey Amber, up for another sci fi? Amber: NO!!!
9. What's your eye color?
Amber: Blue. Kind of a sky blue.
Pierce: Blue, I guess.
10. Are you good or bad?
Amber: Be more specific.
Pierce: I wouldn't attempt to evaluate that myself.
Gale: I don't know.
11. What is your greatest fear?
Amber: If I tell you, you'll make me face it. And from what I've been hearing, if this story goes the way you're planning, I will do more than that. I had a talk with a girl named Jasmine earlier. Apparently you discovered she's afraid of deep water?
Pierce: Um... that I won't pass the next test? If I don't pass I'll have to spend another year in my level.
Gale: I'm with Amber. I was listening to you and Jasmine.
12. What do you think of your family?
Amber: I admire my dad a lot. (Her dad, by the way, is dead. It's just that one of the important things in the story is that she refuses to believe it.)
Pierce: I never knew either parent, so I really don't know.
Gale: Same as Pierce.
13. Was it fun to answer these questions?
Amber: It's okay.
Pierce: I guess.
Gale: So long as I can tinker, I don't care what else I'm doing.
14. Do you have any weaknesses?
Amber: Refer to my answer for number 11.
Pierce: This is important to the tag? Well, I do tend to plan things out a bit too much.
Gale: None that I would confess in public... or to Nicki.
15. What's your species?
All together: HUMAN!!!!
16. What's your theme song?
(Haven't picked these out yet. Must do so!!!)
17. What's your favorite element?
Amber: Silver, I guess.
Pierce: Oxygen. Doing some experiments with that in the lab.
18. Do you care what other people think about you?
Amber: Not really. So long as I do well in school and all that, I don't really give much weight to it.
Gale: YES!!! It means everything.
Anyone like my characters? Even a little bit? (In case you're wondering where Fletcher went, I changed his name to Pierce.)
