BV 1000: Stuck

Am having trouble getting into the head of one of the characters I started writing about in BV 1000. (I could of course switch topics and just keep moving, but why would I do something as comfortable and as reasonable as that when I can sit here worrying irritably and endlessly away at this one?)

Here’s the deal: You’re mythical, legendary. You’re the daughter of a god. The god, really. Which makes you a goddess. And you have a father and masses of big brothers who do rough and often quite terrible things when you are not looking but treat you carefully like something delicate and perishable.

You fall in love with a lonely human being. You decide you want to marry him. No-one in your family is going to like this.

How does your head wrap itself around the situation? How do you see your godly self, your godly family, the wretchedly human lonely man?

Buggered if I know.

  1. Hmmm…if it were mine, the ideas I’d at least start with:

    1. You can’t chose whom you love.
    2. She’s immortal; he’s not.
    3. She can get anything she wants; he can give her so little.
    4. Maybe she wants to know about time.

    Then there’s how experienced she is, what she knows and doesn’t, what she thinks she see in him.

    So, ideas of love upending to start, and then I’d see where it takes me…
