Tuesday Tales: Laris Takes Over!

*This post occurred before I changed the WIP title.*

Happy Tuesday!

So a while back, I put out the call for questions for my characters from The Crystal Bearer to answer, so I could get into their heads and hone my writing a little more. I've had some great questions and am having a lot of fun answering them. Click here to read back on previous ones!

Today, I have Prince Laris back to answer a question from Heather Holden: What are some of your favorite stories to tell? Are there any stories you'd refuse to share with others?

Ooh, another question for me? How nice!

Hello, Lady Heather Holden! For as far back as my mind will let me remember, I have always loved a good adventure tale. Have you a genre in your world called magical realism? 'Tis fun to tell tales of other imagined worlds or tales from our history; howbeit, I love to watch a child's face illumine at the thought of hidden magics greater or stranger than we already encounter in Teorre. A childhood favorite I enjoyed reading to my baby brother Ariel was The Sprite Child's Epic. 'Tis set within a hidden layer of Teorre where the trees and waters actually speak to the main character Lenne and guide her back to this side of Teorre after a faeriefly bite splits her consciousness from her physical body. Ariel and I spent many days talking to the pines of our woods just hoping one would reveal a hidden face to us and send us on a magical journey. Howbeit, you do not want to be bitten by a faeriefly. 'Tis easy to believe our fear is what kept us from that magical layer.

Are there stories I would refuse to share? Well, I admit I do know a randy tale or two, but I haven't spoken of them since I was a young teenager. I am sure the young he-Sprites still tell them in the bath halls and snicker to themselves. To be young again.

Laris is 26, mind you. lol Thanks again, Heather! Next week, Brodie tells us why she chose to become a watchman.

Never too old for those randy tales. Just have to tell them in the right company.

We are each human but we are lucky that sometimes we can feel part of something exciting something good by recounting awesome stories.

Love Laris' answer! I agree, magical realism is a lot of fun... :)
