Meet the Character: Abner Rosenthal
What is it that you want, but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
"I desperately need to locate my fiancée, Priscilla. We were separated when, The Earth Fell, and I need to develop a plan to cross the crevice."
What's your internal limitation? Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need to do during this story?
"At moments, I had difficulty believing that she is still alive. I'm moving forward on faith. It wasn't until I saw her waving to me from afar that I pushed forward with my quest."
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
"My fear of dying, and my need to rely on, Letch, for help. He is less than trustworthy. I know that he is only in this for the money and doesn't believe in love. I hope I can trust him."
What's your external complication? In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most.
"The Diablos are treacherous monsters. I've witnessed the havoc that they can wreak on a poor soul. And then there's the crevice. The impassable crevice, the thorn between myself and Priscilla, I must figure out how to get across it."
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
"Priscilla is as beautiful as the rising Sun. She is smart and loyal. We were so happy before we were separated."
What would that person say about you?
Priscilla always said that I was her rock: steadfast and true. She always called me her little provider and then she would pinch me on the ear and kiss the top of my nose.
What is your family like?
"When the Earth fell, I had no family other than Priscilla. Then I met, Junkyard. He's my dog and the closest thing to a brother I've ever known."
What special skills do you rely on?
"I rely on my engineering skills to keep alive. Junkyard has a special talent for locating things that we need. Letch provides an extra set of hands. We need all three to survive."
Are you happy with the way your story ended? Why or why not?
"The end of the story brought me great happiness and great sorrow at the same time."
