17, 19, 20, 21 for unrooted

17. pick a color to represent each character.

  • Pomona: green
  • Nevea: red
  • Demetra: black
  • Delia: royal blue
  • Callisto: purple
  • Cris: navy blue
  • Tacita: pink

19. which character most fits a character trope? which trope? 

I would say that Pomona definitely fits the McCoy trope, while Cris is definitely a Seeker.

20. which character is the best writer? worst?

Ah, this is interesting! I wouldn’t call any of the characters of Unrooted particularly literary except Demetra, who keeps diaries. Cris keeps plenty of academic notes but isn’t the creative-arts type. 

21. which character is the best liar? worst?

Appius is the best liar, followed by Demetra and Cris. 


Hi! 13 and 15 for Unrooted?

  • Delia = Gryffindor
  • Demetra = Ravenclaw
  • Callisto = Gryffindor
  • Cris = Ravenclaw

15. describe each character’s daily outfit.

  • Pomona: A brown or green wool skirt with an apron and a leather corset, along with work gloves and her headscarf. 
  • Nevea: A corseted dress usually in light colors with bright embroidered accents. The current style includes flared sleeves and traditional geometric and floral embroidery along the seams and hems. Her hair is worn braided under a maramă, or silk veil, with her royal headdress. 
  • Callisto: A traditional white blouse and linen skirt with an apron, though she’ll switch into loose trousers when she’s more active.
  • Cris: Either an outfit like Callisto’s or a pair of loose trousers with a vest and a felt hat. Sometimes they combine the two. 
  • Tacita: A loose silk or or linen draped dress, usually in pastels, with a complex braided hairstyle. 

(For the questions ask) I hope I can ask multiple numbers. If so, I’m curious about 2 and 3. Preferably for the first book in the series :D

Sure! Both of these are for Unrooted!

2. pick one sight, smell, sound, feel, and taste to describe the aesthetic of your novel.

Have I posted this one? Idk, ask me things anyway!

ask!ask!ask! please!!!

I’m having debut anxiety this week so ask me these questions about any book in the Iridia Series (1-5), and I’ll answer in as un-spoilery a way as possible!

8, 9, 11, 35 for Pomona, Nevea and Delia

8: What is, perhaps, their biggest flaw? Are they aware of this or oblivious to it?

Pomona: She has attachment issues that aren’t her fault, but which she isn’t really aware of. This leads her to have a difficult time expressing her needs and forming positive, trusting relationships. She’s so afraid of hurting people that she has several walls built up to prevent that from happening.

Nevea: Nevea’s biggest flaw is her insecurity, but it actually manifests as overcompensated ego. She puts down others and elevates herself to hide the fact that her self-esteem is actually pretty damaged. She knows she’s mean to people, but she doesn’t really know the reason.

Delia: Delia is incredibly impatient, and she gets frustrated with people for not doing what she expects them to do as soon as she wants them to do it. And when situations don’t go her way, she bails.

9: Do they have a favorite season? What about a favorite holiday?

Pomona: Pomona’s favorite season is spring (no surprise), and her favorite holiday is Mărțișor (mur-tsee-SHOR), which is the holiday celebrating the arrival of spring. She doesn’t really participate in many of the celebrations, but she loves decorating the garden with red and white for it and watching from afar.

Nevea: She likes early- to midwinter best, because it’s lovely but not so cold as to be miserable. Her favorite holiday is the midwinter feast, which also involves parades and costumes and a chance to let the hair down.

Delia: Delia prefers the summer because she loves the sun and heat. She doesn’t have a favorite holiday in Izolat, but she remembers the Rainbow Festival from Solharena as being a past favorite.

11: What is something that would make your character fly into a rage?

Pomona: Hardly anything because she keeps herself so well-regulated. If anything sets her off, it’s usually when someone has put her down to her face too many times. But even then, her response is relatively mild and not what could be considered a ‘rage.’

Nevea: Anything mildly inconvenient. (Just kidding.) Nevea is easily triggered, but there’s a difference between her melodrama and legitimate ire, and the latter is usually brought about by someone underestimating her and treating her like an idiot.

Delia: Stupid people.

35: Is your character afraid of death? If they got to choose how to die, how would they want to go?

Pomona: Yes, she’s afraid of death because she’s not sure what might happen to her after she dies. She would be the one to say “of old age in my sleep” should she be asked how she wants to go.

Nevea: Yeah, she’s terrified of death, which is very inconvenient for her when the plot comes around. But, if she got to choose how she would die, she’d probably say by something sudden and invisible, like a heart attack.

Delia: This is a … complicated question for her. The short answer is no, she’s not afraid of death. If she could choose how she’d die, she’d say “of old age with my wife.”
