YA Highway (btw, check out their giveaway!) has a really fun question for Road Trip Wednesday this week:
What would be the ideal holiday present for your main character (or favorite character)?
Instead of agonizing over a one-line plot description, I'll just tell you what I'd get them and let you imagine....
For Caspric, my (justly) exasperated knight: An estate all of his own, so he doesn't have to be dependent on his older brother for the rest of his life. Something with a big house and nice hunting grounds.
For Flavian, my poor, confused, exiled prince: A bottle of bright yellow sugar pills he could exchange for the medicine his psychiatrist gave him when he started seeing things. That way, he wouldn't have to pretend to swallow them in front of his mom. (They taste awful when they start to dissolve in his mouth.)
For Mera, my badass runaway princess: Her father's head on a platter, with a note that says, "You had nothing to do with this one."
I had fun imagining what I'd give my characters for Christmas...even though if I gave them these things, my plot would dissolve!
What about you? What would you give your characters, or your favorite characters, for Christmas?
