CHARACTERS ON THE COUCH
I'd like to introduce you all to Todd Dawes, best friend of the MC in my WIP Phobic.
Me: Can you tell us what your biggest vulnerability is?
Todd: You think I'm just gonna spill to you because I'm on a couch and you have a clipboard?
Todd: I'm stupid, okay? As in not-smart. I barely got the grades to make the football team. Now that the guys all accept me for being a badass, I'm afraid of people finding out that's all there is to me.
Me: So that's what people believe about you, but it's false? You're not really a badass?
Todd: People believe I'm tough. Piper's the only one who sees the real me.
Me: What would Piper say is your fatal flaw?
Todd: My pride is a flaw, though I don't know how fatal it is. You act like we're in the middle of a horror movie or something.
Me: Piper does live in a haunted house.
Me: And what about redeeming qualities? There must be something she likes about you.
Todd: I'm always protecting her from bullies and stuff. I care about other people, and that redeems my pride.
Me: What do you want most? And what are you willing to do to get it?
Todd: I lived through grade school being tormented for being stupid--it's not my fault I was born dead for eight minutes, okay?--and I won't do it anymore. I want to be one of the guys, and if that means doing stuff with them, without Piper, then I guess I'll have to.
Me: Now don't you feel better getting all that off your chest?
Todd: I am a badass, after all.
