Beautiful People: August 2015

It seems every month begins and I eagerly await the revealing of Beautiful People questions only to find myself more than half way through the month without completing said character questionnaires. Why me?


Well, I've finally remembered to answer the questions and put the post together, so here we are: Beautiful People August 2015. Since the beginning of August was Friendship Day, all the questions are best friendship related. And I happen to love strong, bonding friendships between my characters, so it's been a hard decision on which friendships to highlight soo...

I'm going to be the crazy person who does more than one pairing. So get ready for a lot of emotions about best friends, brothers via bond, brotps, etc.



How long have they known each other, and how close are they?
Since birth, well Killian's birth. Gilbert was three when Killian was born. They've been by each other's sides ever since. They're closer than brothers (though they are cousins). The only time they've been apart was when Gilbert left to complete his knight training.
What’s their earliest memory of being best friends?
Killian remembers Gilbert sneaking into his room at night in order to "protect" him from the monsters under the bed. Gilbert remembers Killian getting them both in trouble for climbing over the sheep pen and getting stampeded by the ewes.
Do they fight? How long do they typically fight for?
Sometimes they do fight because of butting personalities and opposite opinions. But after a day or two, they get over themselves and make up.
Are their personalities similar or do they compliment each other?
They're definitely different. Gilbert keeps Killian in check while Killian makes sure Gilbert livens up a little.
Who is the leader of their friendship (if anyone)?
Both are equal, depending on the situation.
Do have any secrets from each other?
Yes, they both have secrets.
How well do they know each other’s quirks and habits?
Better than they know themselves.
What kind of things do they like to do together?
Fencing, horseback riding, getting into trouble, going to the market, reading in the library.
Describe each character’s fashion style (use pictures if you’d like!) How are their styles different/similar?
They're very different. Gilbert is usually clean-shaven, smooth and properly fitted garbs, shiny boots, not one hair on his head out of place. Killian's clothes look like they should be falling apart, usually dirty, unruly hair, stubble on his cheeks.
How would their lives be different without each other?
Gilbert wouldn't have a job looking out for the crown prince and Killian wouldn't have the support and loyalty of Gilbert.



How long have they known each other, and how close are they?
They've known each other since they were six years old, when Emmett's family joined the starship crew Leezander's father worked for.
What’s their earliest memory of being best friends?
Emmett walked right up to Leezander and said, "Let's be friends."
Do they fight? How long do they typically fight for?
It's rare they fight. They disagree on opinions, but it doesn't drive them apart. Both can be calm in their arguments.
Are their personalities similar or do they compliment each other?
They are wildly different in some areas but similar in others. Think Sherlock and Watson from BBC's Sherlock, only in outer space.
Who is the leader of their friendship (if anyone)?
Leezander for sure. Emmett vows he'd follow Zander to the ends of the galaxy, if he had to.
Do have any secrets from each other?
Plenty. But they do try to tell each other the truth.
How well do they know each other’s quirks and habits?
Well enough, though Emmett is still surprised by Leezander's perception skills.
What kind of things do they like to do together?
Hijack space pods, hack into starship computers, oh... and try to battle evil military officers.
Describe each character’s fashion style (use pictures if you’d like!) How are their styles different/similar?
Leezander keeps his style simple and in dark shades. He's not one for showy or extravagant styles. He likes to keep a low profile. Emmett is always in his academy uniform or engineer clothes. Covered in grease or clean as new.
How would their lives be different without each other?
Emmett certainly wouldn't find himself in the middle of so much trouble or so many adventures. Leezander would get a big head.



How long have they known each other, and how close are they?
They've known each other since forever. When they were young, they were two peas on a pod. After Juliet moved back to Port Blue, they slowly regained their friendship.
What’s their earliest memory of being best friends?
Juliet remembers playing jungle adventure in Adam's kitchen. Adam remembers playing on the beach for hours on end, the endless summer.
Do they fight? How long do they typically fight for?
They don't usually fight. Only once did Juliet get mad at him and it was a big misunderstanding that was quickly resolved after a few hours.
Are their personalities similar or do they compliment each other?
They're both similar and different. They've got a lot in common with each other, but Juliet is more outgoing. Adam is definitely shy and introverted.
Who is the leader of their friendship (if anyone)?
They're both equal. Adam usually is the one dragging Juliet off on adventures, though.
Do have any secrets from each other?
Oh, yes. Adam has a big secret he's keeping from her. ;)
How well do they know each other’s quirks and habits?
Pretty well.
What kind of things do they like to do together?
Run around the beach, fishing, sailing, stargazing, adventures in every shape and size.
Describe each character’s fashion style (use pictures if you’d like!) How are their styles different/similar?
Adam is usually seen without shoes, wearing shorts and a plain colored t-shirt. If he must, he will wear sneakers and jeans. Juliet wears similar attire: shorts with a t-shirt but she’s usually wearing sneakers. She does admire vintage clothes and wishes she was brave enough to wear that style all the time.
How would their lives be different without each other?
For about ten years they lived without each when Juliet’s family moved to Alaska. Adam was pretty lost without her. He didn’t make a whole lot of friends until she came back. Juliet, however, got along fine. But when they rekindle their friendship, they both agree that whether they could live without each other didn’t matter: they don’t choose to live without each other. Juliet’s life wouldn’t be quite so adventure-driven, sensitive aware, or imaginative. Adam would probably lose part of his soul without Juliet. 


Whew! We survived. Find the questions and link-up here. Are you participating? Let me know in the comments. I'd love to hear about your characters' friendships.

P.S. I apologize for not writing as much on the blog as of late. Somehow summer has been crazy busy, but I hope I'll find some things to post soon. Find me over at The Fangirl Initiative posting about fandoms, fangirls, and everything in between. :)

    1. Thanks for reading! I'm sure I could have kept going on and on and on with the friendships I've created. :)

      I've got a special place in my heart for Gilbert and Killian (and the actors too (; ). They're just too much sometimes. *sighs*

      I'll definitely look over your post! (I meant to earlier, but you know, distractions...)
