So I heard there was this real fun thing to do, such as an interview with a character from a novel. I thought this was a novel idea, pardon the pun and decided to go ahead and do this with my favourite character from the novel, Ares, the king of Sorchkah.
Me: Hi Ares, I can call you that right? Or would you prefer your Majesty?
Ares: Ares is fine thank you.
Me: So thank you for coming along tonight for this interview.
Ares: You are welcome.
Me: So let's get straight to it. Can you give me some information about yourself?
Ares: Of course. My full name is Ares Draco Erestar, King of Sorchkah. I was born to Queen Indiana Erestar. The Draco in my name comes from my ancestor, Draco Erestar the first king of Sorchkah. He was also the first dragon shapeshifter. My father was prince regent, but he died when I was eight, I became the official ruler then.
Me: Draco like Draco Malfoy! This is pretty cool.
Ares: I am sorry, I do not know this person. Is he from Fawna?
Me: No. Never mind. Second question, this one is a bit more personal. Can you tell me one thing about me that you don't think anyone else knows?
Ares: I am a dragon.
Me: Like you turn into a dragon?
Ares: Exactly. I am the first dragon shapeshifter since King Draco himself.
Me: What are your plans for the future? Do they include marriage, kids, the whole package?
Ares: I want to rule my people with prosperity and leave a country in peace. Despite my reputation, I do not eagerly engage in warfare. I do prefer peace. I would one day love to have a queen by my side and a few children as well.
Me: What do you look for in an ideal partner?
Ares: Intelligence and courage. Beauty will only get you so far. I would look for someone with wisdom to lead the country when I am not around.
Me: Do you believe in true love?
Me: May I ask why?
Ares: I've seen enough of this so-called love. It brings down kingdoms. It kills people. It harms. Love is nothing more than poison.
Me: Oookay, anyway, next question, I hear you can perform magic. Is this true?
Ares: Every being in Fawna, apart from humans, carries magic in their veins. I have the Power of Earth and Fire.
Me: To carry two is rare isn't it?
Ares: I'm not sure. I haven't heard of any others recently, but that's not to say there aren't any others like me.
Me: What do you think of the news that the 'Child of the Prophecy' has been found?
Ares: If that is the case, I wish her all the best. Nobody should have to live like that.
Me: What do you mean?
Ares: Living in fear every day that this day is going to be your last. Troubled by a destiny that you cannot escape from.
Me: Do you believe in the prophecy?
Ares: That there is a man who will call himself a Dark Emperor? I believe that if this prophecy is true, he is a very sure of himself individual, especially if he has to term himself a Dark Emperor. If there is a man who thinks he can take over the world and destroy everyone, it will not just be the Child of the Prophecy standing in his way, there will be me as well.
Me: So you believe in justice and freedom?
Ares: Of course. It is all every king wants for his people and I am no different.
Me: Well thank you so much for taking the time out to come by today and give this interview. I would love to do this again some time.
Ares: I look forward to it.
Hello, my name is Imogene. I am a story-teller.
I might like to tell stories, but I am not very good at blogging. I've never really felt comfortable with that whole tell the world everything about you, but it is what it is.
I was born in Christchurch, New Zealand and I have lived here my whole life. I come from a reasonably large family. When I was a child, there was no television in my house and as a result, I read. ALOT.
I guess you could say my love for books stems from my obsession with Enid Blyton's books. I devoured everything she wrote, from the Wishing Chair series to the Naughtiest Girl in School.
This is me.
