Hello my lovelies!!

It is once again that time of the month! The spotlight is when a particular character, as well as it's biography has stood out to site staff, and the work put in by the RPer we feel should be acknowledged. So that others may take inspiration from the way this particular character has been developed.

This month, join me in congratulating the character that has been selected is Ainslee Cormac, who is RPed by the wonderful Alex! If you have a moment, do take the time to read through her biography and development!

As per usual, we asked Alex to answer a couple of questions for us,



What was your initial thought when you were contacted about being spotlighted? I actually got up from bed at 6 am in the morning and I thought I was in trouble. But once my brain function a little even without coffee, I was ecstatic. Delighted to be spotlighted.
What was the inspiration for your character? That award has to go to Kate Middleton. She's sophisticated and yet she has flaws.
What is your favourite RP that your character has taken part in? Ooohhh, there's so many but I would say when Ainslee and Arnoud went to their first date at the zoo (Welcome to the Jungle)... never know they end up together
What is your favourite aspect of your character? She's fierce. She fights back to protect her family whether from scrutiny or people who take advancetage of them.
Your least favourite aspect? Ainslee being a power hugger is my least favourite because she uses their family money to get what she wanted (i.e bribe Teagan's mum to go away :r)
If you could meet your character in real life would you want to? Why or why not? I would love to but with her status and everything, could I even have a second to talk to her? I bet I can't :p
What do you feel your strength in developing characters is? Pre-planning. I jot down everything in paper (Yes, paper. I still use them). I have this OCD tendencies that if I don't write it somewhere, I'll forget about it.
Your weakness? Making too much characters, specially family characters. I tend to focus on one family only and I need to break that habit.
What would you recommend to those looking to further develop their characters? I'd say join open topics, they're so much fun and can gather random dramas :r and can make development easy.
What are you most looking forward to on HNZ in the next several months? HNZ's birthday werewolf. Yes, I will be vigilant this time :glare:
What is your favourite part of HNZ? Of course the people that I've known for 11 years. They're amazing and helpful. I can't find another site like this in the world wide web.
Congratulations again Alex!

Congratulations Alex :party: I was just reading through Ainslee's biography and I love how it's written in first person. Definitely gives the bio a voice~ Ainslee seems really interesting, good job :D

Is there anything that has happened for Ainslee that didn't happen quite how you planned/expected it to happen?

Have you found you approach adult aged characters like Ainslee differently to students in terms of development or plots?

To rephrase, do you think you've plotted or planned things for Ainslee differently than you would a character who's a student?

Is Ainslee's fear of blood something she's overcoming? Surely she encounters it somewhat often in the improper use of magic office - or does she have her underlings handle it? @Ainslee Cormac

What made you choose your playby?
I'm a fan of Jenna Coleman when she was as Clara on Doctor Who and I thought she's also perfect with the name 'Ainslee' but as the character grew up and Jenna seems to have that teenager face. I found her best match with Thea Owens, they have the same features but Thea has more of the adult features.

Yes, I do plan differently depending what age my character is. I think I plot more exclusively with my adults than with my students. I tend to plan ahead for them because they're not like the students who can experience more.

She's kind of overcoming it, bit by bit but not totally. Adding that she had a miscarriage 2 IC years ago. Although if she comes across of it at work or field work, she just overcomes it but deep inside, she's screaming =))
