so a character was born from a torture scene
the scene literally created the character
this is the kind of writer i am

alsooooo i love my characters but i love to hurt them
and the strange thing about these two characters i ship so hard is that i need to write their interactions and dynamic and develop their relationship really well otherwise it won't work and the entire plot of my story will seem to have been spawned by an out-of-character moment so no pressure on me or anything
WHY DID I DO THIS x-x (it's gonna be awesome once it's written tho i can be sure of that)

so i have an imaginary world that's been with me for as long as i can remember and it's called asaidia and although i have no idea what the actual work is going to be like i think that this "three children of taria" thing is gonna work out
let me explain
there is a citadel called taria in the midst of two countries; lassow and kolca, who don't like each other. taria is often reduced to a battleground-but the three children of the lassian king, canton, graciela, and ina, are very very important.

canton is a hunter and the heir to the throne, but he has a volatile temper. people think he's capable of less than he is, but all the same, he's never really grown up. he's sort of in a frustrating vicious cycle that doesn't help his mental state at all. graciela is the middle child who is-or seems to be-simple and mindless and very stupid, incapable of comprehending the power she wields as the heiress to the throne if canton should prove too volatile she is often called fair-and-foul, because she is a very plain-looking person. ina is older than graciela, but younger than canton, and is adopted, and her birth mother, sira, made it very clear she was not to be in line for the throne unless all else failed. she is actually the daughter of ardetor and the queen's sister sira, and her father is very, very, very, very powerful. and thus, so is she- but nobody knows that. ina is the fairest one- the child that gets the most attention. however, her mother the queen is doing her best to keep her crazy, uncharted power from manifesting so that ina's already stressful life won't be too much for her to handle. ina's got the habit of biting off more than she can chew because she thinks that what affects other people won't affect her, if you catch my drift.

i'd love your opinions on this- it's something that comes into my mind a lot.

that sounds like a good idea c: good luck with the mainstream publishers! (if you want recommendations for publishing houses- if you're not looking to get an agent- tor and daw both accept unsolicited fantasy/sci-fi manuscripts c: ). congrats! that's super exciting :3 what's the total word count, if you don't mind me asking?

I looked at both of them. Daw rarely accept manuscripts under 80,000 words and my book is about half that size. Tor seems awesome, except that it refuses to publish anything previously published whatsoever, and it's not open to submissions right now. I'll probably check it out again after I finished editing, but I'm not sure. It also sounds like they take a long time to publish, and I really want to publish by the end of winter break.
