Milestones Writing Tag Rules

  • Thank the person who tagged you but also link back to the original post
  • Provide a short description of your WIP/story!
    The setting is an understated hell, or underworld, but I’ve set it up to be a crowded city, something like Chicago or maybe Hong Kong? Marcel sells his soul in exchange for his brother’s life, and is sent to hell where he meets a beautiful demon boy named Violet. Violet takes Marcel under his wing and into his gang. He has a plan to escape hell and become human again, and go back to earth, but what parts of their humanity will need to be lost in order to get out? As Marcel and Violet become best friends and fall in love, they want to save each other.
  • Don’t use just one character for all answers if possible! (We want to get to know as many of your characters as possible)

My sister made me these aesthetics because I wouldn’t stop talking to her about Violet and Marcel, my two dearrrrsssss

Violet

Violet smells like cherries + his hair is dyed violet because he’s undeniably clever. The city is hell.

Marcel

Marcel loves video games and books and coffee and being a sweet boy and he has a fast car and wants to be a firefighter c:

Can your MC remember their first day of school? Who was with them?

Violet was born in France, 1950, so a lot of parts of his humanity are blurry.  He’s been in the underworld for so long. But he can remember making friends, being kissed, and crying because he missed his little house and mother by the Seine.

For Marcel, his first day was in Detroit & it was was soft and sunshiny. And it makes me cry.

Violet’s room (at some point)

Which one of your characters would be the first to buy a house or property? (because that’s part of adulting??)

Oh Marcel for sure, he’s just a good boy who wanted to be a fireman in Detroit. Maybe if he gets out of hell he can buy a place??? and Violet will move in??? because they belong together and I love them

Flower Bouquet 2

Does someone in your WIP own a pet?

Sadly hell doesn’t have too many cute animals :((((( But Violet considers some boys and girls in his inner circle to be his pets. Because he’s not very nice.

What was your MCs first job and how did they feel about it?

Marcel’s first job was probably helping out around the fire house, where his dad served as a fireman. But he ADORES coffee. So he worked at Starbucks. And books. Maybe a bookstore too. He’s just a special pure boy.

Violet worked as a model and dated people who would give him money.

Does your MC or another character want kids?

I don’t think Violet would ever want kids. I doubt he’s even thought about it. On earth he had (many) lovers but nothing permanent, and his mother was more of a friend than a parental figure.

Now that his soul has suffered to the extent that it has, his interest in kids is nonexistent. Violet is just too vicious and f’d up right now. Maybe forever. Which is fine with him.

Marcel though??? Domestic af.

Flower Bouquet 2

Name a song that reminds one of your characters of heartbreak in their life!

Marcel died in a car accident, when he sold his soul to save his big brother’s life. The song playing in the car was “Pride” by Kendrick Lamar.

Love’s gonna get you killed
But pride’s gonna be the death of you and you and me

Hell-raising, wheel-chasing, new worldy possessions
Flesh-making, spirit-breaking, which one would you lessen?

flower-bouquet-2-e1527193241812.png

Has one of your characters lost someone close to them? How did they deal with it?

Marcel never lost anyone he loved & he’s so innocent and pure????? But he did almost lose his brother and he dealt with it v thoroughly

When Violet was on earth, he lost his best friend after she was poisoned. Now she’s in hell with him, but in a rival gang. He doesn’t really deal with “feeling,” because his emotional process is screwed.

What is an achievement your MC is proud of?

Marcel is proud to have earned Violet’s friendship, the vulnerability that’s completely hidden from others. He’s so in love with his Violetttttt.

Violet is proud of his reputation, of being ruthless and scary.

*hard eye roll*

MY WIP IN GIFS TAG

– Thank the person who tagged you. ELIZABETH ILY

– Credit the creator of this tag and link back to this post so she can find out allll about your WIPs!

Flower Bouquet 2

Sum up your WIP in four GIFS

Flower Bouquet 2

Introduce the Main Characters

Violet

Violet is a silly, charming, completely unhinged boy. He has little empathy and does bad things. He’s been in the underworld a very long time, so he’s become a creepy little shit.

Marcel

Marcel is  a sweet adorable pure nerd. MY BRAVE SMOL BEAN.

Flower Bouquet 2

How would your main characters react in a crisis

Violet

Violet loves chaos it makes him wonderful and happy.

Marcel

Marcel’s #1 priority in all things is taking care of Violet, his special boy. At any sign of trouble he rushes to protect Violet against any and all things.

Flower Bouquet 2

If you were to meet your main characters, how would you react?

Marcel is soft and delightful so first I would just gaze at my ADORABLE GAY SHIP.

And if you were to meet your antagonist

Violet is so pretty but

Flower Bouquet 2

Is there any romance in your WIP? How would you sum it up in gifs?

Loyalty is extremely important to Marcel and Violet, it’s kind of the touchstone of their relationship.

COMFORTING EACH OTHER IS SO PRECIOUS. And necessary bc the setting.

And romance or not, Marcel and Violet are each other’s best friend ❤

Flower Bouquet 2

How do other characters feel about this ship?

This is Violet and it’s usually best to just give him what he wants. He doesn’t care what other people think of him at all. Characters in his gang are happy because Marcel has a calming effect on Violet, and usually Violet’s too much.

How do you want people to react to reading your WIP?

    Yes!! A gay romance! 😀 I love reading and writing LGBT romances and am queer and trans myself. ^_^ So I enjoyed this post and would love to read your story when it’s done!

    Hmm, Marcel is a nice boy, but I find myself more charmed by Violet. XD He sounds fascinating. 🙂 I liked the passages you shared too. Also, I was listening to My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion while I was reading your post, lol. Violet and Marcel forever!

    I did both of the writing tags you did too. https://sieranlanecom.wordpress.com/2018/04/23/writing-tag-activity-using-gifs/ and https://sieranlanecom.wordpress.com/2018/05/31/the-milestones-write-tag/

        Yes, life would be so much less interesting and enjoyable without LGBT fiction!! ^^

        I find it really nice to listen to love songs that I like while writing romance. 😀

        Keep up the good work with Violet and Marcel!

    Kekeke I loved reading through this! Violet sounds like one compelling character, and for some reason he sounds like a scary badass that I’d love. I can totally see why you’d run away from him though. 😂 Amazing post! ❤

    I didn’t know you had such a fantastic WIP or I would have tagged you myself for all the writing related tags I have! (Making a mental note to not forget in the future though!!) You story sounds so fascinating and I love how much detail you already know about your characters. I am sure Violet is awesome, but I think I am a little partial to Marcel. He sounds too precious for this world … or hell? I just met them, but I already ship them hard!!!

    I loved so much learning more about your WIP Malanie, both Marcel and Violet sound like incredible characters and I’m already rooting from them just because of how you’ve talked about them/described them in this post. Marcel seems really sweet and I kind of want to wrap him up in blankets and give him a hug (he seems like he needs one) but Violet is probably my favourite at the moment. What can I say, I love antiheroes! 😀
    Great post, good luck working on your WIP as well, and oh great snippets. 🙂 ❤

    Oh, I love this so much! It’s literally set in the underworld? I don’t know if my sunshine & rainbows heart can take this much pain & darkness? (Actually, you *might* know better because HOCAT isn’t all sunshine & happiness)

    But Violet actually might scare me? Even though his hair is violet and I want to hug him, he sounds like he would find a way to stab me. Marcel is adorable, though. And the Kendrick song??? It’s PERFECT!

    PS… this entire thing reminds me of Adam SIlvera??? Especially the aesthetics? Also, the aesthetics are SO GOOD!
