Guess That Character Blogfest

The lovely Jennifer Daiker is hosting a
“Guess That Character” blogfest.
Today participants are to post a snippet that introduces a character without any description and then everyone tries to guess what the character looks like. Descriptions will then be revealed tomorrow. To see the rest of the entries visit her blog Unedited.

For my entry, I chose a snippet from Radiant Fury featuring my main character Anna. That’s all I’m revealing because I’m terrible about giving things away!

The moment I was plucked from my unconscious stupor, I found myself on the floor surrounded by a captive audience. Their faces were clouded with a mixture of empathy and sadness as they watched me with apprehensive intent.

The closest girl, a petite little thing helped me to my feet. Despite the state I was in I couldn’t help but notice her beauty. Her features were identical to the others yet she sported a severe electric blue bob with a lone streak of silver running freely down the side of her face.

"Don’t be frightened,” she said. The girl helped me back into my chair. Her eyes shone brightly with a rainbow of color against a backdrop of equally brilliant blue as they assessed my state of being. “You gave us quite a scare, we heard you screaming from our rooms.”

I looked at her for the longest moment while the truth sank in. “Oh crap! I died didn’t I? That’s the only way to become one of you.”

Okay that's all you get folks! So what does Anna look like? See you tommorrow for the big reveal!

Wow, that really doesn't give much away! Nice short scene though!

Right, considering the little girl had an electric blue bob, I'm guessing this is kinda a futuristic thing. So Anna might have...maybe bright purple hair, Kiss rocker style. And considering she thinks she's dead, she mustn't look too good. A bit pale and haggard, and if a little girl could help her up, she has to be petite too.

So am I close?

Hi,

I have no idea why I'm thinking drunken stupor, unconscious on university campus.

I see a middle-aged woman, greying bush of mousey hair covered in blue glitter, she's a uni lecturer, unused to much celebratory drinking, she's short, normally nimble on her pins and popular because she has a laid back attitude to the process of teaching.

Renae this was so unfair! I was dying to know more! You stopped right at the unperfect time!!! So not cool.

My Guess: Okay so Anna before death I would have saw black hair a little past her shoulder blades, bright blue eyes that pop out of her oval face. Skin is fair and freckless. However after death (if she did die) I would be curious if she gets some special color like maybe PINK!! I love pink :)

Can't wait to see if I'm way off... which I'm sure I am, because I consider myself a terrible guesser!

Clara said...

Wow, I have no idea. The first image I had was brunette, but then she stroke me as a red hair. Casual type, white, green eyes. Did I get it? Ok, guess not, but it was fun!

Jemi Fraser said...

Good snippet!

I'd say tall/shapely because of her petite comment. I'd also think soft brown hair/brown eyes because of how she noticed the blue and colours...

Matthew Rush said...

For some reason I get the feeling that she won't look as alien/modern as the others. Is it because she's new? No idea. I picture warm brown curls of hair cascading around her face. Dark eyes, dark complexion, but beautiful beneath her outward apprehension.

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

This is great! What a hook you've got! I'm saying mid 50s, sudden heart attack? Beautiful actress, blooming in her aged roles. Finally getting the credit she deserves. But that's probably so WRONG because you write YA! Pfft, oh, well, that's what I see! :o)

Guess my character correctly and win a prize!

Hanna C. Howard said...

I'm definitely guessing wildly exotic look--but not so exotic as the other girl. A tamer hair-shade, possibly a deep red? Tall. Long hair. High cheekbones and wide eyes.

I love your entry! It's very enticing.

Summer Ross said...

I'd say a spirit, but not a normal kind, My guess would be taller, athletic, pony tailed blonde hair.

Terry Stonecrop said...

Curly, dark auburn hair, gray blue eyes. Tall, medium build but lean. I'm thinking a high spirited young girl, maybe killed in a car crash.

This is spooky good:)

Vicki Rocho said...

I'm stumped. I was thinking it was a guy who I was picturing with rumpled clothes and curly, mussed brown hair. But Anna? Hmmm. Just gonna say long brown hair with bangs...

Lorna said...

Ooooh, okay! I think Anna has long, dark brown hair, blue eyes, pale skin. Quite petite and quirky in her dress-sense.

Susan Fields said...

Hmm...very interesting! I'd say she has whitish-blonde hair, cut so short it's almost boyish. She has delicate features, big blue eyes, and fair skin. She's small but tough.

Creepy Query Girl said...

short brown hair, tall and lanky build with some freckles and big blue green eyes. Thats my final answer;) great snippet!

Elizabeth Mueller said...

I'm thinking that she's become some kinda cyborg. Her eyes are no longer soft brown, but yellow. Her hair long on one side and very short on the other--and it's brilliant pink. The color of her lipstick is powder blue!

:D

Brenda Drake said...

I'd say she has dyed black hair with large green eyes, tall and slender, with a sarcastic smile.

This one was tough, and you stopped too soon--I wanted to know more. Can't wait to meet her tomorrow! :D

Damyanti said...

I would go with green wig of hair, pixie looks, slanting eyes, full lips, on a heart-shaped face. Not very tall, and probably 17.

The snippet was short but expertly written and left me wanting more!

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Oh my gosh! Okay, let me think...Anna is pale-skinned but her lips are ruby red. Her hair is so white it's almost silver, but she's very young -- early twenties. She's rail thin but has nicely shaped breasts.

Oh man, can you tell I have no idea?? Looking forward to tomorrow!

Christine Danek said...

I think dark black hair with silver streaks, light eyes, pale skin.
I can't wait to see. I want to read more.
It's funny my main MC in my other WiP is named Anna. Nice choice.:)

Dianne K. Salerni said...

I'm thinking that Anna, if she has really died and become one of "them," also has a short blue bob with a silver streak on one side. This will give her a shock when she looks in the mirror. She may have looked completely different before -- may have been blonde or brunette or any race at all. But now she looks just like them.

Lenny said...

wow this is real hard. i think she screamed and fainted cause she looked in the mirror and saw she was all different and she knew she was dead but didnt want to think it. she looked mostly just like the other dead ones.
...smiles from lenny

Diane J. said...

Oh my gosh, I'm having a hard time. Maybe she has a short bob, with jet black hair, straight bangs and the sides angled toward her chin. He eyes are equally dark and she has soft pink lips.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Does she have an electric blue bob down the center of her face like her rescuer who apparently is a ghost.

I would wager her eyes are slightly glazed in shock. Her features are puzzled and dazed. Her hands trembling from shock and weakness.

But JC is right. You didn't give us a lot to work with. But since she notices her new friend is very petite, she must not be or she would have mentioned it.

So statistics would say she is of medium build, brown hair, with brown eyes. You gave us a challenge, but I should talk. Roland

aspiring_x said...

this one is so hard! i even skipped it the first time... umm going to have to go completely random... she looks like Haley Duff... no idea why. quiet, unobtrusive, passive... she never risked enough to live life until she was dead. (btw!!! we must be almost neighbors! go wildcats!)

Bethany Mattingly said...

Ha, I think now she may look a little different than what was originally thinking, maybe she's got an electric green hair do to match with her new friend? Naturally though, I think she has plain brown hair that falls to her shoulders or is swept up in a ponytail. She has deep blue almost purple eyes. She is tall and of medium build.

Stephanie said...

Oh...left us hanging!!!!

I'm thinking a young girl, maybe 18-19. She described the other girl as petite, so she must not be.

Love the look of your blog, BTW! Reminds me of mine!! :)
