23 january – the interview. #bloganuary

January 23:

Interview a fictional character.


I found this one to be difficult. Maybe I’m not feeling overly creative since I’m upset. I did think of a bunch of fictional characters I’d like to interview, but I’m at a loss for questions to ask.

Hell, I even googled it—creative interview questions. I got a bunch of crap about job interviews. When I added “fictional character” to my search, I got instructions on how to interview your characters before you write your book. None of this was helpful to the matter at hand.

But finally, I chose someone and wrote the interview. I’m not particularly happy with it and it’s a bit short, but whatever. I’m tired and I have a headache.


sandra: Thank you for coming back from the dead to meet with me Mr. Stark. I know you only have time for a few questions, so let’s get started.

Tony Stark: The pleasure is all yours.

sandra: It certainly is. *can’t help but smile* Speaking of pleasure, does your previous reputation as a playboy bother you?

Tony Stark: Bother me? Hell no. I earned it.

sandra: Do you see yourself as a role model?

Tony Stark: Of course. I don’t have superpowers. You don’t need them to be a hero. But you probably need to be a billionaire genius. Study hard, kids.

sandra: Noted. If you could be any superhero, who would you choose?

Tony Stark: Is this a trick question?

*laughter*

sandra: Okay. I’m going to be serious now. What’s Thor like?

Tony Stark: *gives a look that could kill* Fat. Next question.

sandra: Would you want Morgan to follow in your footsteps?

Tony Stark: What I want doesn’t matter. What she wants matters.

sandra: Aww. What a sweet dad moment. While we’re talking about kids, my daughter insisted that I ask you for Peter Parker’s number. Your thoughts?

Tony Stark: You didn’t get this from me. *whispers* ###-###-####. Need anything else? You want a suit? I’ll make you a suit.

sandra: No thank you, Mr. Stark. I’m afraid of heights. But you can make one for my son.

Tony Stark: Done.

[Interviewer’s Note: I didn’t choose Thor because I love him and all, but if I had him in front of me, I wouldn’t be talking.]

   
These guys aren’t fictional. Although they kind of are to me. I wouldn’t get through an interview with either of them. I probably wouldn’t even be capable of speaking.

p.s. — Here’s that list of possible interview targets I came up with, in case you’re interested.
Flynn Rider (Obviously he is the first one who came to mind.)
Chandler Bing
Doctor Strange
Indiana Jones
Gregory House
Lorelei Gilmore (Oh my god! There’s a female on the list!)
Willy Wonka
Lloyd Dobler
Eric Cartman
Tweek Tweak
Homer Simpson
Charlie Brown
Sterling Archer
Spike or Angel
Daria Morgendorffer
Rick Sanchez

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  2. Will you believe I interviewed Tony Stark too?
    And that we asked him a similar question!?
    What a coincidence!
    I think you did a great job, because this sounds like things he’d actually say!
    I would also interview a bunch of people in your list if I could- Flynn, Wonka, Charlie Brown, Dr.Strange and Chandler!!
    Definitely true about Thor, I probably won’t be able to sit still (which I also mentioned in my post lol)
