You Ask Elric

 So, lately, a few writers have been introducing their characters and allowing people to ask them questions. I thought it sounded fun, so here's the post! I did a character interview for Elric awhile ago. (You can read it here.) But now you have the opportunity to ask him questions. For those of you who don't know him well, here's an introduction.

 So... some of these photos make him look a little younger than he is, but I like the expressions. 

 Elric is the main character in my novel, The Prince's Quest. He's the second son of King Rath and Queen Eloine, and crown prince of Linaeus. Elric is smart, once praised by his tutor as one of the highest minds in the country, but this information doesn't please his father who is more of an action kind of guy. Because of this, King Rath tasks his son to find a traitor in a small town and bring him to justice, simply to prove he'd be a good king. But Elric isn't the most athletic guy. In fact, he'd rather read a book then get into any sort of confrontation, so his younger brother often beats him at swordplay. But before I reveal too much about my character... I'll give you the opportunity to ask your questions! 

 Can't wait to see them. And the answers should be posted next Tuesday!

So what's his fantasy world like? Is their anything unique to it he likes to do?

Karoline Kingley said...

Ooh this book sounds thrilling! As does Elric. My question for him would be: If he could hold any position in the world, what would it be and why?

This is such a good idea I might do the same on my blog. :) Can't wait to see the answers.

Heather Manning said...

Elric, what kinds of books do you like to read?

Cari said...

Elric, how do you fix your hair like that, when you don't live in the 21st century?

(sorry, Bethany, I couldn't resist. You can disregard this question if you want. haha)

Katelyn Shear said...

Elric, what do you think of your father?

The Magic Violinist said...

My questions for Elric:

1. Who is more in control: You or Bethany?

2. Do you like your name or wish you could change it? (My character often want their names changed). ;P

Can't wait to see the answers! :D

Bethany said...

Victoria: Good question! ;)

Karoline: Well, thank you. I'm sure Elric wouldn't describe himself as thrilling, but I'll let him respond later. :D And great question!

Heather: Ooh. That's a good one.

Cari: Hahaha. Fun question. I guess we'll see what Elric has to say.

Katelyn: Uh oh. I'm not sure he'll like this one. ;)

Magic Violinist: Haha, these questions are funny. Can't wait to see what he says... *gives Elric threatening glare*

He and his father sound almost exactly the opposite of my elven prince and his father. :D

How do you feel about being one of the "highest minds in the country"? How do people treat you? Do you wish they would treat you differently? Have you ever been in love?

(Bethany, would he be the character on the book cover I made for you? :D )

Bethany said...

Elizabeth, that is correct!!!! :D

Elric, is your Father's name reflective of his disposition?

What real life person did you base Elric on?
