Queue Up For Q...
Ahh, Q. Quality, quantity, quarantine... Hmm... I don't want to be quarantined. But those are a few of the Q's that come to mind. Minding my P's and Q's, that is what the blogging challenge is all about. Minding A's and D's as well.
I could go with the obvious post, but where would the fun be in that? See. We could go the route of Questions.
So let's do that. I will dedicate this Q post to a day of Questions. If you have any, ask away! I will answer to the best of my knowledge and respond in comments.
I do happen to have a character I am working on with a name that begins with Q. His name is Quagha Li'endrin. (Kwag ha Lee en drin) Quagha is going to be the grandfather of my character Alabassin (Al uh bass in). The WIP containing Quagha is years before Alabassin is even a thought, let alone Alabassin's father, Mandorak (Man door ack).
Quagha, in Legend of Black Rose, is trying to force a neighboring kingdom across the strait into an alliance. They're not a very large kingdom, Jenlakai (Gen lah keye), the size of their army would barely dent a tenth of Relavia's army. What Quagha is interested in most is the tactical advantage they would provide. He'd be able to utilize their ports and ships to gain a fractional advantage over Paridzule which would be just enough to tip the balance in Relavia's favor.
Quagha intends to force Jenlakai into this pact by producing his cousin to marry the king and queen's young daughter. Instead of welcoming Quagha with open arms and open vaults, they usher their daughter out of the kingdom under the cover of night. This is sort of what Quagha expected, so he decides he will take the kingdom by force, destroying towns and villages every day until the daughter is returned and properly married, locked into a treaty.
Ahem. Sorry, I got carried away. I don't want to give out too much information! Hehe. And don't forget to ask those questions!
Okay so, Favorite Band: Queensryche (of course!!! Geoff Tate... ::Swoons::). Favorite Movie: (The) Quick and The Dead.
