Desu (of Watership by Jenna Whittaker)

Watership - Jenna WhittakerDear readers, tonight with us is Desu. She is a Crawler, a member of a genetically bred race of caretakers who have watched over the last remnants of humanity. She is here to talk with us about humanity’s travels across the universe in it’s Hollow Earth spaceship.

We had the chance to interview her as part of her blog tour around the Earth. You can find more info about Desu, Jenna and the rest of the tour stop in the links below.

 

Tell us a little about where you grew up. What was it like there?

I was created in the depths of the earth, Assaph, by human scientists bent on the survival of their species. I am one of a horde of creatures, genetically modified to best suit the underground environment of the humans’ sanctuary.

Did you have any favourite toys as a child? Any cherished memories?

I had no childhood, no cherished memories…and I wish I did. It is something that brings me great sadness; that the humans have these things, and take them for granted. I would give anything to be one of them. They have families and happy memories–all I know is awakening in the darkness, fully grown, and ready to protect the humans with the rest of my kind.

What do you do now?

I protect the humans! For…I don’t know how long, I lived underground inside the hollow earth with them, watching over them, making sure they stayed in the city limits and stayed safe. But when the watership awoke and told us–all of my kind, the Crawlers–to take the humans and put them inside the ship, ready for departure, everything changed. Now I watch over the humans in a far more volatile environment–inside the watership, in space. Continue reading “Desu (of Watership by Jenna Whittaker)”

Keridwen of Orleigh (of A Spell in the Country by Morgan Smith)

A Spell In The Country - Morgan SmithDear reader, we take time tonight outside of our regular schedule, to participate in the #YourNextFavouriteAuthor Blog Tour! 

We weren’t quite sure who would show up tonight, but we are very excited to meet them!

So without further ago, let’s meet our guest for the tour!

 

 

 

Let’s start at the beginning. What’s your name?

Keri

Give me your full name…

Keridwen of Orleigh

Where/when were you born?

Orleigh. That’s up north, in Dungarrow. Right up on the border with Camrhys, too, although with the mountains, well, they don’t bother us much.

Tell Us More About Yourself… Who are your main enemies, people you would like to see stopped from whatever they are doing?

Angharad. I don’t know why she has it in for me. Well, all right, I killed her father, it’s true. But, I mean, it was him or me. It was a fair fight. And he needed killing. Anyone might have done it.

Hypothetically… One of your friends just insulted you. What is your response?

Was it Sorcha? Because I’m not going to have a response to anything she says. I value my life. If she wants to insult me, she can. Continue reading “Keridwen of Orleigh (of A Spell in the Country by Morgan Smith)”
