It's day two of the "I'm Hearing Voices Blogfest" and this time we have to introduce two characters using nothing but dialogue.
February 8th - Wednesday - Dialogue Introduction: Have two characters introduce each other using only dialogue—no backstory, no internalization, just dialogue between the two. Max 250 words.
This is a perfect exercise to flex our "Show Don't Tell" muscles and I have a lot to show off. (Winky Face ;)
Again, I'm opting to use characters from my WIP, Portrayer, because they're a tad more interesting than those in my MG. I was torn between which characters to choose, but I think I selected the right pair. Either way, I hope you enjoy this exchange.
"Girl, I'm 'bout to tear this place up--these heifers better know I don't play those games!"
"Aqua, cool it, let me handle this. It's my face not yours."
"A'ight, Sarah, but if I see that hoe step outta line I'ma get ta slicin'!"
"Thanks, just don't do anything crazy, okay?"
"Fine, but I'll say this though: you have a lot of patience. If I'd gotten slapped in the face like you did--OH.MY.GOD--I woulda make it rain up in here!"
"Put that away! Are you insane? If a teacher catches us we'll get expelled!"
"Chillax, girl, it's a toy gun--see."
"I don't get you sometimes, you live in the suburbs and your father's a diplomat."
"So--why do you act like this?"
"Act? This ain't no act, sweetie, this is all fierceness right here."
"But you're half Asian."
"And you're half hatin', let's leave it at that."
"All right, no need to get--"
"Well, well, well if it isn't Whoreetta and Skankator."
"Keep her out of this, Amanda, this is between you and me!"
"Haven't you had enough punishment for one day, or should I introduce your left cheek to my hand, too?"
"First of all, you jumped me when I was parting a fight, and, secondly, it was you and your cheertrolls versus me."
"Cry more, loser!"
"How 'bout I make you cry, Amanda!"
"Um, excuse me, 'dawg', speak when you're spoken too, okay? Thanks."
"Oh. No. You. Dinant!"
"Oh yes I did!"
"Lemme tell you somethn' you little--don't touch my nail--don't you dare touch--!"
"BITCH DONE BROKE MY NAIL!"
I hope this was as much fun for you to read as it was for me to write. Aren't showdowns between the good girl and the bad girl fun to watch?
I can't wait to see what you guys came up with. I'm so excited I'm practically itching! Oh wait, that's ants. 0_0
