Beautiful People: Grant

I haven't done a BP in a while, and since Cait and Georgie so kindly are hosting it again, I think I'll jump on the bandwagon. 

This month, I'll be showcasing (showcasing? *thinks* ... showcasing... somehow that seems rather boastful of me... anywhoz...) Grant from my story The Dragon Tamer, which as many of you know, is broken into three books (Children of a Legend and Rebirth of a Legend being the first two).


1) What does your character regret the most in their life?
Probably his temper. Grant tends to rush into things without thinking them through, and then usually ends up regretting something. He can be very stubborn, and that stubbornness carries through with his apparent dislike for certain people. As for any particular regrets, I can't say because he hasn't gotten to that point --

What regrets?

Grant?! Where'd you come from? You nearly gave me a heart attack.

What are you talking about? What regrets? I need to know.

No, you'll find out later.


Listen, what good is a story when I say what happens in the end? Don't worry... you'll know what it is when we get to it.

Not fair.

2) What is your character's happiest memory? Most sorrowful memory?

You know, Kiri, you should have asked me to fill out the questions. They are about me.

Oh, really? Do you think you could do a better job?

Hey, who can know me better than me?

Your author?

Ha. Not funny. Now... my happiest memory. When Davin found me and told me I was the son of the Dragon Tamer. We had an epic fight and then I got to meet a dragon for real.

Hmm... and most sorrowful?

When... nope, can't say, Kiri. Spoilers, you know.

You're incorrigible.   

3) What majorly gets on your character’s nerves?


Grant, be nice about your brother!

I am! I didn't say how he gets on my nerves.

4) Do they act differently when they're around people as opposed to being alone? If so, how?


I wouldn't think so.


You're more pensive when you're alone.

Only when you want me to be pensive. You know, I really don't like to think that much.

I've noticed.


5) What are their beliefs and superstitions? (Examples: their religion or lack of one, conspiracy theories, throwing salt, fear of black cats.) 

I believe in the one true God of the universe, the eternal Creator, and the Savior of men's souls. 

Well said, my little fighter. But you still have a long way to go to learning more about Him.

6) What are their catchphrases, or things they say frequently? 

*rubs head* What do I say, Kiri?

I don't think you have a catchphrase. You just yell a lot.

Hey, now!  

7) Would they be more prone to facing fears or running from them?

Facing them. I'm always ready to fight.

Not everything.


8) Do they have a good self image?

Of course! Everyone loves Gruesome Grant! Or... at least, everyone in East Delt did.

9) Do they turn to people when they're upset, or do they isolate themselves?

He isolates himself.

No, I don't!

*pointed look* Yes, you do. You hate human intervention. 

10) If they were standing next to you would it make you laugh or cry?

If who were standing next to me?

If you were standing next to me, Grant. Technically, this question's mine. 

Oh, well... go ahead then.

I... hmm... I really don't know. You have a natural talent to make people laugh, but with everything you've been going through, I feel slightly frustrated with you, and I doubt you could make me laugh right off the bat.


Yes, frustrated.  

Naw, but you wouldn't cry. You still love me too much to do that.

*sigh* I guess you're right.

Are we done now?

What? Yes, we're done. That was all ten questions.

Good. Now go finish writing my scene. You left me hanging there.

A "please" might be nice. And I did not leave you hanging.

That's because you know what's happening! I don't, dash it all!

Fine. I'll go write.

Thanks. I'll sign off for you. So long, folks!

Wait... my picture!

You don't need that.

Yes, I do!

But it's not even you.

It's nice to end a post with a picture.

Fine. Here's a picture.




  1. Oh my goodness Kiri Liz, why did I not follow your blog before!!! This post was... SO. AWESOME. I loved it so much. haha, you and Grant with your quarrles... what a dashed good idea! And how funny it all is!!! I'm going to read it all again.

    Grant, thank you for your comments and for interrupting your author, because it was worth it! You are so funny Grant, but you should remember to respect Kiri. :-)

    (There, I had to write something to him, or he'd be cross.) Heehee.

    Again, thank you for the bestest post. I love.

  2. It's Grant!!!! I'm so excited that you're working on the next installment. Grant is one of my favorites (as you already know).

  3. This was such fun to read! I loved seeing both your and Grant's answers. Clever idea. :)

  4. This was so fun to read. :) I like that Grant's voice shone through. Also! DRAGONS! :D (sorry I'm a bit obsessed about dragons ???)

    I also like your choice of actor for Grant. ;)

    He sounds cool and the story sounds exciting!

  5. GRANT. Of course Grant would take over the post. I'm not surprised in the least.

    Man, now I miss these characters desperately.

    "You know, I really don't like to think that much.
    I've noticed.


    Yes, Grant, go make her write because I NEED the sequel! This post just brought back all the wonderful things and characters and now I miss it all sooo much! Write, Kiri, write! Your fans are waiting.
