Over on a friend's role playing site, a writing exercise was started that really interested me. Basically, you "borrow" someone else's character and write a short piece for/about them. Trouble being, I'm not all that familiar with some of the characters, so I just take the character and plop them into short historical pieces. I'm much more versed in history after all!
Anyhow, despite the fact I am quite familiar with Gemethyst and Thorn's characters, I decided that they'd be awesome in corsets. > That led to the Civil War era and to this thinly veiled tale of two hot sisters spying their way through the Confederacy.
My older son called while I was fighting to fit the corset onto Gem (she's the one with the enormous hooters), and I complained about large jugs and crinolines and corsets to him. He was quiet a moment and then said 'Civil War espionage drama?'. *sniff* I have raised him well.
The bit that irks me is how the light worked with the character's skin. Gem SHOULD be lighter than Thorn, but the lights said LOL NOPE. However, for the purposes of the "story" as it were, it works!
