Character Reactions…(surely there’s a better name for this?)
This is what happens when friends try to help me get into my character’s mindsets:
Envisioning a scene where your Angel characters are talking … and the Koolaid guy busts through the wall and yells, “OH YEAH !!!” ……. and then everybody reacts the way they would react .. based on who they are ….
Alex: *grows tree trunks around Mr. Koolaid, holding him in place*
Emma: I’m getting a cup.
Kerry: bring me one too?
Emma: are your legs broke?
Kerry: no, and no I don’t want them to be, so yes, I’ll get my own damn cup.
Heather: WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? MR. KOOLAID JUST BURST THROUGH THE FUCKING WALL, AND YOU’RE GETTING CUPS?!
Emma: ….what? We’re thirsty….it’s koolaid….
