Sneak Peek 12: Kailen the Fairy

Fantastical Creature Reality Show Contestant Sneak Peek #12: Kailen the Fairy

At five and a quarter inches tall, Kailen is the shortest potential contestant. He has pale skin, dark hair and transparent wings. A dark green tunic covers vine like tattoos on his chest and shoulders. Five black dots mark each side of his face starting beside his eyes and arching down the edge of his cheeks.

Interviewer: You are the shortest contestant applying for the show. How do you feel about that?

Kailen: There’s nothing wrong with my size. The world is full of different sizes, including creatures much smaller than me. If everyone were the same size, that would be a boring place in my opinion.

Interviewer: Everyone knows fairies can fly, but other magical powers vary from place to place. What are your magical abilities?

Kailen: It’s true we can have very different abilities, even within the same populations. I can do some shapeshifting and healing. I also talk to many living entities like plants.

Interviewer: Those will come in handy on the island. What do you think will be the biggest challenge for you?

Kailen: I don’t know yet. It depends on the circumstances. I guess having to lift heavy things might be a problem.

Interviewer: Don’t forget iron. Do you worry about metal poisoning on the island?

Kailen: Where would the metal come from? We’ll be dumped on the island with nothing but the clothes on our bodies. The point is to survive, not just from the elements, but also from each other and the viewers. I suppose some metal might make it onto the island. If so, I will avoid it.

Interviewer: What makes you special enough to make it onto the island?

Kailen: I think the viewers like fairies and will want to see one on the island. It isn’t enough to be different because we’re all different. I can fly, and that will add another dimension to the game.

Sneak Peek 11: Eadric the Barbarian Warrior
Thursday, 18 December 2008

Fantastical Creature Reality Show Contestant Sneak Peek #11: Eadric the Barbarian Warrior

Eadric is from the Depths of Peril world of Aleria. Sky blue eyes peer from a silver helm. Long wheat blonde hair flows over the shoulders of Eadric’s chain mail. He rests his broad hand comfortably on the hilt of the large sword strapped to his side.

Interviewer: You’re the third potential barbarian contest I’ve interviewed. Why do you think this game is so popular with barbarians?

Eadric: I don’t know that it’s more popular with barbarians than other races, just that more barbarians made the cut to the final round. That doesn’t surprise me. Barbarians are very good at competitions about survival.

Interviewer: Sounds like you’ll have an edge on the island. Are you worried that you’ll be seen as a strong player by the other contestants?

Eadric: Worried? No. Why wouldn’t they see me that way?

Interviewer: But don’t you worry that they’ll choose you to be voted off the island because you are strong?

Eadric: The winners choose who will be voted off. I’ll be on the winning team, so no, I’m not worried at all.

Interviewer: Is there any kind of event that you would find troublesome?

Eadric: I haven’t really considered it. I guess maybe something where I’d have to be small. Or tiny spiders. Give me giant spiders any day, I’ll split them in half, but tiny spiders give me the creeps.

Interviewer: There are many contestants vying for a spot on the show. Why should you be chosen for the island?

Eadric: Because I’m the best and I’ll prove it on the island. It is my hope that all of the contestants who make it will be strong competitors and give me a true challenge.

Sneak Peek 10: Dedrick the Centaur
Wednesday, 17 December 2008

Fantastical Creature Reality Show Contestant Sneak Peek #10: Dedrick the Centaur

At fifteen hands high, Dedrick is an average size for a centaur. He’s a bay with honeycomb hair and tail. Dedrick wears no clothing over his toned torso. Sage green eyes match the beads on his leather necklace.

Interviewer: What’s it like being a centaur?

Dedrick: What do you mean? It’s the only life I’ve ever had. I can’t imagine being all human or all horse. Humans are confined in so much clothing and horses have no hands or mouths shaped to make words. Centaurs have the best of both worlds.

Interviewer: What are you most looking forward to on the island?

Dedrick: The beach. I haven’t been to a beach before and this show will almost be like a vacation.

Interviewer: What are you most dreading?

Dedrick: The lack of other centaurs. I’m used to my herd and I’ve never spent much time on my own before. I know I’m competing against the other contestants and we won’t really be a team, but I hope they are friendly.

Interviewer: What is your strategy to win the game?

Dedrick: Make friends, do my best and stay out of the way when possible.

Interviewer: Why should the voters want you on the show?

Dedrick: I’ll bring a unique perspective to the game- horse sense and human ingenuity.

Sneak Peek 9: Bolo the Orc
Wednesday, 17 December 2008

Fantastical Creature Reality Show Contestant Sneak Peek #9: Bolo the Orc

Twisty scars mar Bolo’s green face and massive arms. He has a blunt nose, wide brows and woodsy brown, shaggy hair. Pointed ears are all that remain from his elf origins. He wears brown leather pants, a broad belt, thick boots and wrist bracers.

Interviewer: Glad you could meet with us, Bolo. Not many Orcs applied for the show. Why do you think that is?

Bolo: How should I know? They’re probably busy plotting a war or something.

Interviewer: Your strength will be an advantage in the competitions. What do you think will be your weaknesses?

Bolo: Orcs don’t have weaknesses, except that not many other races like us. They’re jealous. I’m glad I’m part of such a high profile race.

Interviewer: What strategy will you use to win the game?

Bolo: I don’t need a strategy. I’ll do better than everyone else and I’ll win. Overwhelm my foes. It’s the only way to do it.

Interviewer: What will you do with the prize money if you win?

Bolo: Well, if I could afford some mercenaries, I could raid a river port and take a boat. I’ve always wanted a boat. Also with enough paid warriors, I could raid a town and kidnap an apothecary to care for my ailing grandmother. She deserves a slave of her own.

Interviewer: That’s sweet. I think. Bolo, why should viewers choose you for the game?

Bolo: Because they DON’T want to see me angry. If I don’t get on the show, I’ll kill…

Interviewer: Don’t forget, it’s against the rules to threaten the audience.

Bolo: Well… Uhh… They should remember- orcs have a bad reputation for a reason.

Sneak Peek 8: Christina the Vampire
Friday, 12 December 2008

Fantastical Creature Reality Show Contestant Sneak Peek #8: Christina the Vampire

Despite Christina’s pale skin, the rest of her image is angelic. Straight blond hair and round eyes compliment her shimmery white thigh length dress with undertones of pink. In truth, she is a huntress of the night- a deadly vampire.

Interviewer: Thank you for meeting us this evening. First I have a question from a viewer. April Johnson from Texas asks, "What offends you? What would you find offensive in other players?"

Christina: I’m not really offended by much. Off the top of my head I can think of just a few things- chatty people, smelly breath, people who are too skinny, obnoxious laughs, people who blink all the time, and suntans.

Interviewer: Well, you certainly don’t have a suntan, but other than your pale skin, you look more like an angel than a vampire. Do you get that reaction from people much?

Christina: I guess. I don’t have as much of a problem with prey as other vampires I’ve known. I don’t mind being taken for an angel. What I don’t like is guys always hitting on me. Sometimes I wish I could look older than the age when I was turned.

Interviewer: "Emily Alice from Texas would like to know, "Will you be willing to swim with sharks? Because if not, you shouldn’t be voted onto the island."

Christina: I’ll be right at home with sharks. I find predators soothing. Vampires are the top of the food chain, so I wouldn’t mind watching the other contestants get torn to shreds.

Interviewer: There are many types of vampires these days. What kind are you? Will sunlight or wooden stakes kill you? Can you see your reflection?

Christina: If I couldn’t be in sunlight, I wouldn’t have applied for the show. It gives me a rash, though. I’ll keep to the shade most of the time. As for the rest of it, none of your business.

Interviewer: I guess you’ll bring a bit of mystery to the show, if you make it that is. And why should you make it to the island?

Christina: What better fantastical creature to have on the show than a vampire? Deadly fun I’d say. The viewers know that. I will be very surprised if I don’t make the cut.
