What do you do when lightning flashes, your window slams open, letting slashes of icy rain drench your room, and you see a hulking figure atop a dark stallion looming outside?
A) Scream for your mummy and hide under the covers?
B) Calmly grab the poisoned dagger you hold under your pillow every night and prepare for the impending battle?
C) Fling everything you can at the figure while you scramble for the door?
D) Cover your face with a pillow and say, “Dammit Bobby, for the last time, I’m not interested!”
Am considering this situation to establish the character of a heroine I’m interested in creating. Most people would assume I’d pick D, because my characters are usually very *ahem* unique in their reactions. B is also viable as all know I’m in love with strong female characters.
But somehow I’m gunning for C. It’s a more rational point of view. A is way too sad for ANY heroine I’d write. B a bit too cliché and D has become stereotypical for the girls that I write about.
But C is logical.
C’mon wei. It’s bloody freezing, you’re woken up by some freaky dude on a frigging horse and he’s looming. [repeat after me, invasion of personal space bad] So you start flinging everything you can grab at his head while escaping. Which male is gonna expect that? Chances are, if the first thing that comes zinging at his head he manages to dodge, the brandy bottle that comes flying after it will conk his horse in the noggin.
And if you manage to break the butt-ugly vase that you just can’t throw away because Great-Aunt Bertha gave it to you on your graduation, all to the good eh?
What do you guys think?
