Writing Challenge!

So I was almost tricked by Emzy to make a new deviant art account and actually post some of my writing there for recognition since everywhere else people either don't read or just my friends do...or maybe person I don't know. And I was tempted. So tempted. Especially when I found this 100 themes challenge and was like "OH GAWD I SO HAVE TO TRY THAT WITH DREAM!"

But that's funny, why would I do that in a place where people can see and critique my incredibly flawed work when I can just dump all my hard work on this blog for all non-existent readers to see while procrastinating from something? So I shall start the challenge here, with Dream. And now that I think about...I haven't posted her profile up o.o'

Anyways, here's the link for the 100 Themes Challenge list (and pffft, this thing's like...from 2009 O.e I'm late to the party) and now...I'm going to list them anyways and then cross 'em off as I make them, so this shall be my most heavily edited post of all...hopefully.

I'll probably just use short pieces for each, and since I'm going to use Dream for all of them (or, as the rules state, have her walking in the background in some of them if I ever need a break from her riddle-ness) I'll post her profile. I've used this character sheet for quite some RPs and then modified it as time goes on, so here it is:

Name: Esther "Dream" Paine.
Gender: Female
Age: Thirteen
Birth date: March 7th, 1998
Appearance: Dream is fairly tall for a girl her age, standing at towering 5'10, bordering to 5'11 in her boots, and growing. Her long blonde hair is tangled and dried, filled with dirt and just left to keep growing until she'll remember to finally chop it off one morning with a pair of rusty scissors. It could be said Dream would be considered a fairly pretty girl if she actually took some time to wash the grime off her face or wear some clean clothes. Sadly, that rarely seems to be the case. Her hands are also very rough and always dirty, combined with her bad habit of taking people by the hand and yanking them to someplace or other, this can get rather bothersome. Most prominent feature is three large scars across her face, caused to her with the claws of, let's say, done to her during what became known to her as 2010 Battle of Christmas Eve at the cabin. Often carries a redheaded ragdoll tied around her waist. (Played by Elle Fanning)

Personality: Dream is not someone extremely likable. Her expression is almost always blank, her mind twisting with ideas and thoughts, things she cannot express correctly and at times end up sounding simply like riddles--games played by the young girl. Even before her mind was broken, Dream was a little strange, although no more than any bored child, liking often to make up riddles for herself and tell them to people to answer. This was all in good fun often, and people played along every now and then. But this changed and her mind became basically structured in her riddles, codes, and philosophies. She began to questioning her own being and the world around her.

Dream is always in a, well...dream-like state. Her reactions or words may at times insult some people, causing a bit of alienation if she's not careful (and due to her at times impulsing nature, she isn't always careful). She wants to achieve things no one else has, as well as always secretly has been drawn to power. Maybe not herself in power, per say, but if someone is a leader, she will attempt to understand them above others.She is most comfortable with her friend Spirit*, whom she feels she can ramble and riddle on about without strange reactions, bored expressions, or annoyed sighs.

Powers: Ability to enter a person's subconscious during REM-sleep--a.k.a, when they're dreaming.

Skills: Can read micro-expressions and body language, so she'll know when someone is lying. Also has began training at hand to hand fighting--particularly muay thai fighting. Not very good yet, but trying and attempting to learn all she can.

And now it's time to wake up.

There's no history because that usually changes with the RP she's in, and her powers of entering dream only appear if there's the excuse for them O.e if not, tis just her skills and her riddles.

I shall have fun with this challenge 8D. Just...gotta ask Carp if I can use Spirit for some of them O.e

*Spirit (played by Isabelle Fuhrman) does not belong to me, she belongs to my friend Carpathia/Lyra (her blog where she's going to attempt this too :3)

"Science and science fiction have done a kind of dance over the last century... The scientists make a finding. It inspires science fiction writers to write about it, and a host of young people read the science fiction and are excited, and inspired to become scientists...which they do, which then feeds again into another generation of science fiction and science..."
