The Shared WIP Tag: Week Five

November 30, 2018

Happy Friday!

Can anyone believe that NaNo is over TODAY??? It feels surreal, honestly.

But first, before this crazy month wraps up, I present to you:


I genuinely don’t know how to do this. I haven’t had any time to make actual, picture aesthetics. So . . . words will abound!

THE GENERAL STORY: shadows // rebellion // kings // fugitives // trust // teamwork // gardens // stress // secrets // lies

FAYE: quiet // mind-reading // loyal // naive // empathetic // healing // distrustful // peace-loving

WHIT: cocky // hurting inside // flirtatious // family-oriented // fickle // knives // artistic // wary

ROWAN: insecure // scholar // reader // leader // diplomat // intellectual // grief of dead father and brother // night person

ERIN: curious // blunt // brave // righteous // self-image issues // hard-working // animal lover // enthusiastic

LORCAN: jealousy // loyalty // courage // analytical // ambitious // arrogant // coward // organized // insect phobia

(Sorry, I couldn’t figure out how to link it so you could actually see the songs.)

And, of course, here are some character "theme songs!" (These may not be the same as the ones I wrote in Part 2. I’ve since added songs and re-evaluated.) They are all included in the playlist above as well.

FAYE'S THEME: Trust Goes Both Ways by Michael Giacchino

WHIT'S THEME: Now We Are Free by Lisa Gerrard and Delirium by Music Junkies

ROWAN'S THEME: Sons of Odin by Patrick Doyle

ERIN'S THEME: Fireworks by Nicholas Hooper

LORCAN'S THEME: Shadows of Loki by Brian Tyler

    Boys that act cocky but are wary and hurting inside are awesome and I need a dozen.
