Since NaNoWriMo is right around the corner, I’ve been doing something different which I don’t usually do. Mainly..I’ve been prepping.
I thought I’d let y’all know what I’ve got so far.
J.C (short for Jennifer Claire)–a 16 yr old girl with a ring in one nostril, six earrings in one ear and four in the other, dyed hair that is jet black except for a hot pink streak that runs through it. She listens mainly to hard rock and heavy metal from the 70s and 80s with a bit of punk and ska thrown in for good measure. She is also, despite what most people think, a virgin. (This will be important later)
Stu (short for Stuart)–an ice white unicorn with a silver horn and long, flowing, reddish-gold mane/tail. Since unicorns are pretty much immortal and there’s not really a whole lot that can harm them, he smokes like a chimney and drinks like a fish. He’s kind of an asshole, in fact and doesn’t seem to care who knows it. His forehooves aren’t really like hooves, but there are two hard, stiff fingers which, when held together, resemble something LIKE a hoof. On the back of his “hand” there is a flexible projection which he uses like a thumb. He can use these appendages somewhat like a hand in order to manipulate objects like cigarettes or the tabs on a beer can.
Pye Ratt–Stu’s companion, a one eyed capuchin monkey who wears an eye patch and a peg leg since he chewed half his leg off trying to escape from a trap. When he chitters/makes noise, Stu can understand him as if he’s speaking plain English. Over the years, some of Stu’s magic has bled into Pye which makes things VERY interesting when he turns into a horny little bastard and goes to screw the female capuchins at a local zoo.
Jessica–J.C.’s mom, classic WASP. Obsessed with everything being just so, hair perfect, perfect makeup. Everything has to look perfect on the outside even though it may be falling to pieces on the inside. She’s obsessed with being on only the RIGHT committes and associating with only the RIGHT people. Image and reputation are EVERYTHING to her, which is why J.C. is an embarrassment.
Scott–J.C.’s dad, a workaholic alcoholic who’s never home and barely even realizes his daughter exists.
Harley–J.C.’s (female) best friend (though she might get weeded out later. I haven’t decided yet)
Skully (may end up being called Iggy, IDK yet)–J.C.’s boyfriend who just wants to get in her pants but she’s not ready to let him for reasons she’s not even sure of herself other than it just “feels wrong” to her.
“I didn’t know unicorns could smoke.” J.C. said as she crossed her arms over her chest and walked around Stu as he leaned against a tree, a cigarette clamped firmly in his teeth. With a dramatic deep drag, he pulled it out of his mouth and exhaled a huge, blue-gray cloud of smoke. “I love to smoooooooooke!” Stu exclaimed in a sing-songy voice. “IlovetosmokeIlovetosmokeIlovetosmoooooke!” he continued, chanting. He took a series of rapid fire drags, making a “mwahmwahmwah” sound as he did so. “I smoke like fifteen packs a day, dollface!”
He reveled in it, rolling around in the cloud of smoke that surrounded him like a puppy rolling in a pile of leaves.
“That..is disgusting.” J.C. replied, wrinkling her nose as she fanned the smoke away from her.
“Yeah but I fucking loooooove it! Oh God do I fucking love to smoke!” Stu said with a grin, the cigarette dangling precariously from his lips.
Stu’s looks (well sort of) and character are based on Denis Leary. 😀 Because can’t you just picture him as a unicorn who smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish and has kind of an attitude problem?
