Blog Chain : Interview with an antagonist
Doesn’t have quite the ring that ‘Interview with a vampire’ has, but it is kinda cool. In this blog chain from Absolute Write, I’ve got two parts to cover. First, though … before me went: LadyMage and after me goes:
jonbon.benjamin. Be sure to check them and all those in the chain out.
Part one: Describe the antagonist in your novel in 50 words or less.
Part two: What would you say to your antagonist if you met him or her in real life? Post a scene in response to this question in 100 words or less.
In Hide and Seek, I have two antagonists. They are the main characters themselves, who were made to be each other’s antagonists (by a very insane Greek god who shall not be named). In the end though my two are meant to be one. Together. That makes their story.
Me: Why are you fighting this thing between the two of you?
Him: Me? I’m not fighting it. She’s fighting it. [Crosses arms showing off muscles in forearm]
Her: I’m fighting it? [Waves him off and looks directly at me] Would you want a guy who can lie, steal and cheat and get away with it?
Me: One who looks like him? Hell, yeah. Oh … was that an out loud thought? [Blush]
Me: What if the metaphysical difference brought you together?
Him: [Smiles knowingly]
Her: [Huffs a breath] Then why are we inherently against each other?
Me: Makes a good story for the grandkids?
And there you have it. Hope you enjoyed. Be sure to stop by others in the chain!
