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

"In their own Words" Andaya Fayn

First Let me say "In their own words" was not an original idea from me, but it is a fun thing to do with characters. I give credit to piedmontwriter for this brilliant idea! and since I will be attending the Guess That Character Blogfest from Jen at unedited I thought I'd post some of my own characters to lead up to the blogfest (Which Jen has done also) I know, I know its not original, but it is amazingly fun and really brings you up close and persoanl with your characters. Thanks for the idea Ladies! Enjoy!

 My name is Andaya Fayn. Currently I reside in a mythical spirit city called Black Diamond City. My mother, bless her heart, advised me to leave the souls alone, but that's a huge stretch when they wont leave me alone. These nightmares were really getting to me until I came here.

I can't say I'm impressed with my current decisions lately, being chased by black monsters that slobber this rank smelling ooze and soul eating spiders isn't exactly fun times at the coffee house, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Atleast I have friends in the graveyard and some really great claws. Did you know Black panthers are really private noble creatures? I have to ask their permission to use any of the abilities they gave me, but its pretty sweet when their claws fly out of my soul to attack!

I'm not sure of everything I'm doing, what I do know is there's a poem that's been stuck in my head for four years. It is evidently the key for me to save the souls trapped here. The nightmares, screams, and pain I feel with these spirits wont ever go away until I've completed the task. But it doesn't stop there, see if I don't succeed then the souls will follow down my bloodline until there is a female that will.

Ah this is soo cool! I love this character's voice (and wow..could her life be any cooler)!

I like that line "Leave the souls alone."

This is really good, I'm not sure what to think, if Andaya is good or bad. Interesting concept.

Saumya- Thank you- I'm still playing with her voice, but I appreciate what you said.

Piedmont Writer- Thanks for commenting, I don't think she even knows if she is good or bad LOL
