Topic: Your Favourite Character Creation
Posted: 24 Jun 2011 04:32

I like to write short stories. With all the vampire stories out there I thought I'd write one of my own and because of the main character the story I origionally has developed into a whole series of stories. I am currently writing the fifth installment of theseries.
The first thing I came up with when I began writing the series is, obviously enough, the main Vampire character. His name is Gabriel Grimmel, and he is a day walker looking to end any and all fighting between vampires and humans as day walkers are dying out. He aims to do this by creating a saviour. He finds a human mate and has a son. The son is raised by foster parents. Not knowing anything about the nature of the child, the sons 'Seth' vampire side only begins to emerge when he turns ten years old.
Having lived among humans Seth has friends and a group has got together all knowing who and what Seth is. There is a full blooded vampire 'Jimmy Salto' who does not agree with or like Gabriels plan and attempts to assasinate the new born child and fails but tries again when Seth is 16 years old.
What started out with one vampire character is now probably one of the longest stories I will ever write.

Ghost of a Stranger 7

‘Meet you on the other side ...’ He could see her face as clear as day as he moved from his left side to his right pulling the duvet up over his shoulders as he turned. Her long blonde hair draped over each of her shoulders and that smell, her perfume, a scent he will never forget, a scent that almost took him back in time to that summer, a summer now more than half his life ago being one...

Ghost of a Stranger 6

‘Get up Colin; c’mon it is a marvellous day today.’ ‘No it is too early, go away.’ Still being half asleep and having yet to open his eyes Colin brushed his face with his left hand and turned on his side. ‘It is never too early to get up on such a fine day, besides it is almost midday.’ The room brightened and Colin opened his eyes for a brief second and saw someone very familiar...

Ghost of a Stranger 5

The female voice that Colin had clearly heard call his name on two separate occasions now may just have a reason to it as to why it is connected to the de ja vu feeling which had accompanied it on each of those two evenings. On this particular evening, however, he did not feel like going anywhere to clear his head other than to his bed. Feeling as tired as he did, Colin seriously needed sleep. ...

Ghost of a Stranger 4

Colin stood at his front door and the early morning sun shone bright forcing him to shade his eyes. Despite the glare of the sun it was not too difficult for Colin to see the many spirits who had gathered and stood either in his garden or lined the street he lived on. The sound of their collective voices projected and echoed. ‘Help us, please help us.’ Those words echoed out...

Ghost of a Stranger 3

Carrie missed the mornings where she would awake to the sound of her middle sister Vanessa playing her clarinet. It never bothered Carrie that she had been disturbed from her sleep though Carrie never thought of being awoken by her sister’s clarinet playing as a disturbance of any sort. Vanessa was good, more than good in fact. She was talented and Carrie always supported her sister in all...

Ghost of a Stranger 2

It is a strange thing this gift that Colin has although if you ask Colin he would tell you that it is more of a curse than a gift and that is if he would be willing to admit to having anything that anyone else might consider a gift. There are times when a spirit would come to him knowing who he is and what he can do and without a word being spoken Colin would instantly know the name and age...

Ghost of a Stranger 1

Colin was neither shocked nor surprised to see Amy waiting for him when he arrived home. ‘Will you talk to me now?’ she asked. Colin had ignored her for most of the day after realizing that Amy is in fact dead, a ghost, someone whom is no longer actually living and not only that but Amy was someone whom Colin knew nothing about. She was a complete stranger and Colin had more than enough...

A Soldier's Love

Andrea awoke a whole ten minutes before her alarm clock was due to go off. She turned on her side and just watched David as he slept. She began to wonder about what the future may hold if she were to ever to lose him. He was and still is after all a soldier. The possibility that one day he would go away and fail to return with his life was a thought that always weighed heavy on her mind....

Beast 2

2.1 With it being just a little after 8 am on a warm, bright morning, Daniel Allen emerged from the house that he had inherited along with the name that he had been given. Eight months had passed and still he was finding it difficult to get used to his new name, his new home, his new old cheap blue car, the low paying office job he acquired and basically his new life in general. This...

1. Graham always ended up getting together with the wrong sort of girl. Maybe he just rushed into relationships, or thought with his heart first rather than his head, and he would always come out such relationships broken. If the girls he met didn't take him for all he had then they would blatantly be with someone else without a care for what that would do to him, and without a care as to...
