More Voices!!!

Today is the 2nd challenge for the "I'm Hearing Voices" Character Blogfest, hosted by Cassie Cook and Angela Cothran. I will admit - this has been a wonderful blogfest so far, helping me out TONS with my characters. Thanks again ladies!

Here's today's challenge: Dialogue Introduction: Have two characters introduce each other using only dialogue—no backstory, no internalization, just dialogue between the two. Max 250 words.
Skye:  "Hello everyone! Thanks for having us today. I am here to introduce Cerron, leader of the Guardians."

Cerron: "And I am here to introduce Skye.... our only hope."

Skye: "Oh, please! I've told you over and over. There is nothing special about me. I will help you fight, but I'm not the key to defeating the king."

Cerron: "Obviously Skye is too modest. She doesn't see the strength that lies within her, but she will."

Skye: "Anyway... Cerron leads the Guardians. They fight against the King to free the children enslaved on the Island."

Cerron: "Skye escaped the Island."

Skye: "I didn't do it alone. Logan came with me. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have made it."

Cerron: "Uh-huh."

Skye: "Aside from Cerron always being on my case - thinking I'm something that I'm NOT... I've found in him someone I can trust. He is the only one besides Logan that cares about me."

Cerron: "If you trust me so much, why not believe me when I say, there is more to you than meets the eye?"

Syke: "Because I know what I am! You've only known me a few days. I am no hero. That's your job."

Cerron: "We shall see."

Skye: "And that's when I'll say, I told you so!"

Cerron: "That's your introduction to Skye. A beautiful smart ass, who doesn't believe in herself."

Skye: "Co-hosted by one of my favorite people, even if he doesn't get it."

This is fantastic!! I like the pic you chose for Skye. Very cool.

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

Skye is beautiful and Cerron is handsome. Wow...what a cast.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Love it! Love how they go from introducing each other to bickering. Good job.

Jess said...

Love it! I think you did a great job with keeping the scene moving along. I like how they're both so humble to the point where they start getting a little annoyed, haha :)
Great job!

Samantha said...

Love it! Also, "Skye" is gorgeous!!

Jenny S. Morris said...

I love the name Skye. And this was such great banter. I really want to know more about the Guardians!

Kyra Lennon said...

I hope Skye ends up proving that Cerron was right about her!

Great banter between these two, really enjoyable to read!

Emily R. King said...

The flirting was a nice touch. I want to see where these two go!

RachelMaryBean said...

Nicely done! I like someone who's strong and modest. :)

L.G.Smith said...

You've got some good tension working between these two!

And Gerard. Swoon. You keep feeding me a diet of handsome men on your blog. I like. :)

Ruth Josse said...

Oh, I like these characters! She seems a little unsure of herself but he believes in her. Great dialog, too!

Stacy Henrie said...

I was totally hearing Gerard Butler's voice in my head as I read Cerron's parts. :) Great stuff!

Angela Cothran said...

Abby--I just love them :) I read on a comment thread somewhere that you have a first draft done. Now I'm pouting! When do I get to read it?

Hope Roberson said...

Cerron's words came through with an awesome accent! That is a hot picture of Gerard, I mean Cerron!
I think our stories sound very similar too :) I know I'd lover yours :)

Ashley Nixon said...

I love the names! As well as Cerron going "And I am here to introduce Skye...our only hope!"

Good job!!

Melissa Sugar said...

I really loved the chemistry and flirting between these (gorgeous) characters. I like that you used pictures to help us see your characters as you have envsioned them. The banter was right on!

J. A. Bennett said...

Cute! I love their banter!

Cortney Pearson said...

Loved this! They have great chemistry, fun banter, and I loved how they acted like they were about to host the Coolest Book Awards or something! Awesome!

Carrie Butler said...

I love them already! :D

Sara said...

They have great chemistry! Really pulled me into the story

Emily Moir said...

Very intriguing. Can't wait to read more.

Nicole Zoltack said...

Love their banter and their names.

Anonymous said...

Skye's sassy but I like that. Great intrigue and banter.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

Very fun interchange. And what a challenge - you met it well! I don't think I could have done a dialogue intro that well in 250 max!

Patricia T. said...

What a productive exercise! Love this idea and what you did with your characters.

Clare said...

Interesting dynamic. I'm very curious to know more about both Skye and Cerron, and their setting. They seem to have a very close friendship.

Mark Koopmans said...


Makes me think there's a great partnership in the making... and perhaps a romance in the future (although the infamous Logan may have something to say about *that*??? :)

Mark Koopmans said...

PS.... hey, that Irish Flag button for the "Got Green?" Blog Hop button is awesome...

Wow... whoever designed it (YOU!!!) must be very talented and giving of her (YOU:) time :)

LisaAnn said...

Love it! Also love who you chose for Cerron... Gerard Butler is yummy!

Queendheena said...

Skye's awesome, aloof but determined. Glad she escaped the island. Cerron's a little weird but he seems nice and believes in Skye.

I enjoyed and felt a part of this dialogue. It's not easy to pull readers into stories with just a quick snippet but you did it. Best dialogue and post I've read in this blogfest so far.

Definitely following and returning to see you grow.

ClaireLouise said...

Hey :) I am a new follower, I found you through Jessica Therrien's blog tour page :)
Can't wait to read more of your posts!

If you have time, please check out my blog :)


Donna Hole said...

Cool, I enjoyed both these characters. The novel plot sound intriguing.
