Poker Face Prompt #4: 100 Words or Less

Prompt: 100 Words or Less
Characters: Desdemona
Word Count: 100 on the dot.
Notes: Consider this a teaser for my forthcoming BRRL spare story about Desdemona.  I’ve got about half of it outlined, and kind of know where I want to go overall.  My plan is to write the whole thing, and then film and release it from there.  Hopefully, I can get some of it up before too long.  So yeah…enjoy the teaser.


She awoke with a start, gasping for breath.  Her nightmare, always the same one, was growing stronger.

Her sister’s deafening scream of terror.  Her so-called friends thanking her for bringing her siblings to them.  Her body paralyzed with fear, except for the continuous chant of her inner voice, repeating that it was all her fault.

Whenever she started making friends again, it came back.  It didn’t matter who or what or where.  As soon as she let people get close to her, it reappeared more intense than before.  And that meant only one thing.

It was time to move on.

Oh dear. :( *snuggles Desdemona* Yeah, I can totally see her having some lasting issues from everything that happened - I think they all do, really.

Yeah. :/ The idea that Desdemona felt guilty about being the one who convinced everyone to go that afternoon...I can see that really messing her up for a while. Which is one of the reasons that I wanted to tell her story.

Yeah, it would.

By the way, I keep meaning to upload her for you - but I realized I wasn't sure what you wanted. Do you want teen/YA/adult? CC or no CC? About all we know about Desdemona after my chapters is that a) sometime between the end of my chapters and the start of Annie's she became an adult and dyed her hair fully green and b) she managed to get to Lily's wedding. So that gives you a bunch of options. I'm pretty sure she's in mostly CC in my game - including the eyes, hair, clothing, and makeup - leaving skintone as pretty much the one non-CC thing. But I'm not sure how much of that you want, so let me know and I will upload her for you.

And I keep meaning to ask you to upload her...

Hmm...maybe as a teen, with her CC? That way I can see what she looks like as she was, and then I can go from there either keeping her CC or switching it out with stuff that I have that is close/matches, etc. Also, can you give me her genetics? I know they're a mess, but a close approximation would be great. :)

I have her uploaded here. It's the original file I got from Stacy and I'm pretty sure she's a teen, but without custom content. All of them are in the zip file along with Stacy's personality notes.

Thanks! I'll probably snag Rose's version too, since I'd like to at least start her out in the same (or close to it) stuff that she was in at the end of Rose's section, since I like some continuity.

Here you go - as a teen, with CC.

https://app.box.com/files/0/f/43216559/1/f_9666333867

Info:

Desdemona Doran

8/7/5/6/6 Taurus, Popularity (no secondary, feel free to give her one)

black/blond (her current hair is in the custom bin, and she should dye it fully green fairly quickly anyway, but that's the genetics)
brown-gray (feel free to change her eyes to your set) / light blue
skin 2

She's straight and I can look up her predestined hobby and LTW if you want, but I don't remember either off the top of my head.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks! I'm sure I'll be picking your brain as I start writing, and may even ask you to beta some parts.

ETA: The link's taking me back to my box account, saying the file "is not available to me." :(

And I don't mind beta-ing at all. :)

Great, I must've used the wrong one at first. Glad that one worked! Let me know if there's any issues with her CC or anything.

Box has been a PITA finding links since they changed their format. She shows up with everything, and now I just need to decide if I'm going to keep her eyes or switch them out to something similar in my existing set. :D

I'm so happy that you've taken on her story. I'm glad you're addressing the fallout from that night too. I can't wait to see where else you take her. :)

I'm excited to do my little piece for this totally awesome project. The idea of Desdemona dealing with the fallout was what got me interested in her in the first place, so it will be a big part of the story. I'm excited to share what I've got in mind.
