The Language of Worlds // May~June Edition

Hello guys! If you haven’t heard about it yet, I suppose I’ll have to be the bearer of bad news. Beautiful People, the monthly link-up hosted by Cait and Sky has unfortunately come to end. *cue sadness*

But! Fear not! Liv K. Fisher has come up with a new bi-monthly link-up to cure our blues! It’s called The Language of Worlds and I am SO EXCITED to just jump right into these questions! Let’s go!

Introduce your character and his/her story!

I’m going to be focusing on a new character/story that has recently been taking up most of my brainpower:

Dietrich Glimar (Trich)


Trich was born without any abilities, so he has trained himself in martial arts and has an arsenal of weapons he’s mastered, including a very special deck of cards he uses as throwing stars. People call him The Magician, because he also has a few magic tricks up his sleeve (and he finds it ironic because he can’t use real magic).

What does he/she look for in a friend? Consciously or subconsciously?

I would definitely say loyalty. He feels like he’s been betrayed by all his past friends, so he’s really afraid to try to connect with anyone now. If there was someone who he could easily trust and feel comfortable around, that would be so good for him.

If he/she could study anyΒ foreign language, what would it be?


Ooh, he would probably enjoy ancient Greek. Much of his world (Nore) is inspired by Greek mythology, especially the capital, Ora,Β where he went to school.

Which person from the Bible would he/she be besties with? Why?

I would say either Timothy (from the NT) or Elijah (from the OT). I feel like he could easily relate to Timothy, since both of them struggle with doubts and anxiety. But he would also get along with Elijah because they both have sarcastic senses of humor. πŸ˜€

If he/she were to visit you for a week, what would you do together?

I…don’t know. I feel like we could just talk together for hours. XD Maybe we would just head into town and wander around and chill and stop at coffee shops. I think I would mostlyΒ be trying to not freak out because it’s MY CHARACTER STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO ME TALKING TO ME LIKE WOW. XD

What is his/her ideal future?

I think he would like to find a companion, raise a family. He would like to be accepted into the Emperor’s Guard again (yeah, he got kicked out), and maybe start talking to his old friends again. But he feels like his future is very bleak and that there couldn’t be a good outcome, even if he tried to make it happen. (He also suffers from depression, so…)

Just like Charlie Brown.


If he/she were to spend a weekend alone, what sort of pastimes would he/she pursue?

Trich is alone most of the time anyway, and he usually spends it visiting different towns and seeing if he could find work there. He sometimes stays with his parents, but he doesn’t like visiting them and they don’t like seeing him. He’ll practice his weapons and learn new moves and tricks often too.

If you could send your character a care package, what would be in it?

Ooh, that’s a good question! I would include:


A few packets of hot chocolate (the kind that comes with little marshmallows already mixed in)

A nice deck of cards (Get it? Cards? Magician? I’m so hilarious.)

Some fuzzy socks

A box of granola (no raisins πŸ˜› )

Some Twix bars

And a music box that plays Fur Elise πŸ™‚

Is there a song that describes your characters journey?

I don’t know if there’s a certain song that describes his journey, but there is a song I like to think works well as his ‘theme song’. πŸ˜€ When I first heard, I was like ‘Oh yeah, that is totally Trich. If he was real, he would love this song.’

What is your character’s place in the story (hero, antihero, villain, sidekick, etc.)?

I think Trich’s place in this story would be somewhere between hero and antihero. People see him as an antihero, even though his actions are for a just cause. It takes a while before people see him for who he really is.

That was so much fun! Thanks again to Liv for creating this new link-up! What do you think about Trich? He’s been in the back of my head for years, but only just recently have I fleshed him out a bit. Let me know down below!

New Until Next Time!

  1. OOOOH. I LOVE sort of antihero characters. And this guy does magic tricks and uses cards for weapons???? I AM ALREADY IN LOVE.

    I was also completely heartbroken that Beautiful People ended. But Liv to the rescue! I almost forgot about her new linkup. #SHAME. I will definitely need to join in here soon. πŸ˜€

    • SAME. They’re like my favorite type of character. πŸ˜€ ACK YES he’s so awesome and one of my favorite characters to write!! *fangirls over own character* XD

      I know, I was so sad! 😦 But leave it to Liv! These were such fun and creative questions! πŸ˜€ Oh definitely, I would love to see your post! ^_^


  2. Oh my goodness, I LOVE Trich!!! Magicians are some of my absolute favorite kinds of characters, so the minute you said that, I was basically just squealing for eternity. I love. I need. I want to steal his fuzzy socks be cause I love fuzzy socks….

    This link-up looks like so much fun, too! I really miss beautiful people, but it’s nice to know that there are other link-ups to participate in. I might just have to try this!!

    • ACK THANK YOU FREN!!! They are so awesome, aren’t they?! πŸ˜€ And there just doesn’t seem to be very many of them, unfortunately. πŸ˜› I’m sure he would be willing to share! Though…I’m not quite sure how two people would share a pair of socks… XD

      It was really fun! The questions were so creative! I’m going to miss it too, but you’re right, it is nice that there are other link-ups out there. Ooh, I would love to see your post!!


      • YESSSSSSSSS!!! Apparently it is our sworn duty to now flood the book community with a bunch of stories with magicians. It is what we were born to do. *begins to plot ALL OF THE MAGICIAN STORIES* *but actually not because everlost* XD I’m. . .not sure how we’d share socks, either. . . XD No worries. I’ll just steal them. I’m a pretty sneaky thief. He won’t even notice they are gone until his feet get frostbite. XD

        I debated doing it, but I THINK I’m gonna wait for the new one!! There should be a new one coming out this month, right? Cause they’re bi-monthly. . .? *is entirely unsure if my facts are even right anymore* XD

        • Yessssss I totally agree. There really needs to be more magician stories. *nods* *considers writing more magicians* considers 156737 other stories to be written* *sweats nervously* XD It might be tricky, but you might be able to sneak them from him. He can be really distractible. XD

          Ooh, yes!! I would really love to see your answers for any of the linkups, because you always have the best answers. ^_^ *double checks* Yes, I believe they are bi-monthly, so the next one would be July/August. πŸ˜€


          • AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. THIS IS SO RELATABLE. *sweating intensifies* Ooh! Does he get distracted with bubbles?? *whips out bubble machine*

            AWWWWWWWWW!!! Oh my goodness, Madeline!!! You are literally the sweetest!!!! <333 OOH! I must check! And also follow the creator of this so I don't miss them. XD

  3. First of all, I LOVE your new blog design! It has probably been around for awhile, but this is the first time I am seeing it. *heart eyes*
    Second of all, I am so sad that Beautiful People has come to an end. I am glad that there are other character exploration link-ups out there!
    Third of all, Trich sounds like a great character. I want to have hot chocolate with him and listen to Fur Elise and maybe just give him a hug because he seems sad.

    • Aww, THANKS!! It is pretty recent, actually. ^_^
      I am too! Yes, Liv is basically a genius, and there’s always Top Ten Tuesdays by The Broke and the Bookish too! πŸ˜€
      Aww, I’m glad you think so. That would be quite lovely, I think he would appreciate that. Because he IS, in fact, a small sad bean who needs attention. T_T


  4. I’M SO LATE TO COMMENTINGGGG! *hides forever*

    TRICH SOUNDS SO AWESOME. Martial arts and lots of weaponry? Awesommmmme! And his care package sounds amazing. ❀ I NEED TO MEET THIS GUY.

    Madeline, you're so sweet! Thank you so much for taking part in The Language of Worlds! I'm honored! *hugs* <333

    I hope you have a marvelous weekend!

    • Oh please, don’t worry about it! πŸ˜‰

      THANK YOU SO MUCH AGH. πŸ˜€ I’ve always wanted to write a character who’s just super good at defending himself. I know! I want his care package… XD SAME. I would really, really love to just sit down and have a nice chat with him. πŸ˜€

      Aww, you’re too nice! Thank you for creating it! These questions were so fun and I can’t wait for more! ^_^


I love hearing from you! ^_^
