  1. Craft a scene
  • Your character is attracted to someone. What do they do in order to grow closer to that person?

This is a potential scene with Veto in it from my current WIP, which is told from the point of view of the main character, Mage.

 

“Listen, Veto,” Mage started.

“Buck,” Veto corrected. He was going to continue to stick to his code name for now.

“Sorry, Buck. I know you took a big risk in joining me here, and I don’t deserve your help-”

Veto waved his hand in front of his face, cutting Mage off and ending the conversation. Veto didn’t want to talk about it now, apparently. Mage would try to apologize again later.

Just then Wing approached them. Both her hands gripped the end of her long brown braid tightly as she tended to do around new people. She cast Veto a nervous glance.

That’s right, Mage remembered, they hadn’t been introduced yet.

“Mage, Quinn and Vala want to talk to you two,” she told him.

Mage was about to speak up to quickly introduce the two of them, but Veto had stepped right up to her before he could react.

“Hello!” he said brightly. “I’m Ve- I’m Buck. What’s your name?”

She scrutinized him through her dark lashes, an eyebrow raised, though she didn’t release her grip on her braid.

“Wing,” she told him.

“Well, Wing,” Veto pulled a small marble from his pocket and flicked it into the flowering tree that towered above them. A single blossom floated down and Veto caught it and handed it to her. “It is lovely to meet you.”

“Okay,” Wing replied hesitantly, but she smirked and actually released one hand from her braid to take the offered bloom. Without another word, she walked away. Both Veto and Mage watched her go.

As soon as she was out of earshot, Mage turned to his friend.

“Wow,” he said. “That was subtle.”

Veto blinked. “What do you mean?”

Mage nodded towards Wing’s retreating form. “You like her.”

“You could tell?”

Mage couldn’t tell if Veto was being serious or not, so he just shook his head in exasperation.
