If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Andaya's looks:

First, I want to say Wow!! There are so many talented writers. Second, Hello all my new followers, I hope you enjoy my blog ...waves ecstatically...
and Third...

The two people who I thought had the closest of Andaya's looks right were:  Francine at Romancing the blog 

she said " Hi,

Lovely piece of writing.

So now the guessing begins: Her skin like alabaster, lips pale pink, large eyes dark (black beads), shoulder length hair (black) and fine with feathered fringe, she's dainty slim, barely a teen, borne of wild imaginings and fanciful tastes in clothes; soft pretty colours, glitter trimmings and sparkly beads.

F"

and Steph at maybe genius
 she said:
"Andy is fairly young, probably no older than 15. She's petite with gray or silver eyes and long silvery blond hair. Ethereal-looking. She's probably pale and has dark circles under her eyes from lack of sleep. She walks with her shoulders a little hunched, like she has the world on her shoulders.

Interesting bit about the souls and the city!"


 ***mostly right except in age. ****

This is what I kind of see in my mind. The first picture is what she might look like inside Black Diamond City, the second picture, is what she might look like after Black Diamond city. Obviously these pics are not mine, so their sources are given below each picture.Dark eyes and dark hair shes 18 yrs old in black diamond city, but about 16 in the snippet I gave.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Wonderful pictures! Your excerpt was intriguing!

Steph Sinkhorn said...

Interesting! Yay, I was close! I had a feeling she was younger because her mother was babying her, but that's probably because she's so worried about her, yes? Nice job :)

Summer Ross said...

Diane~~ thank you

Steph~~ Yes her mother is worried, worried she'll turn out like grandma and be the crazy person everyone stares at lol.
