Picture Me on Friday

This week, I'm using a variation of "Picture Me on Friday."

Today, you find yourself with this man. What do you see in his face? Is he a love interest, caring, giving, sexy, romantic?

Or is he a killer, a con artist, the antagonist in your next book (if you're a writer)?

Use your imagination and tell me what you see in his facial features that would cause you to lean one way or the other. And tomorrow, you'll find out his true identity...

Well, first of all, I've had a major crush on Rick Springfield FOREVER so it's hard to get beyond the reality of that into the "semi-reality" of my imagination in thinking of him in any other way! LOL As for what I "see" - it's all about the eyes. Eyes are truly the mirror of the soul. You can tell a lot about someone by searching the eyes - "warm" = happy/good/sexy...."cold" = danger/evil/scary. Rick's eyes are just plain HOT. LOL

I can see him, with his long dark hair and green eyes, dressed in a period costume and living in Ireland... Or sailing the open sea in the first days of the founding of America. He could easily be a character in either of my historical works - in River Passage as a frontiersman fighting for survival on the Tennessee River or in Songbirds are Free as the soldier fighting the Shawnee. Come to think of it, if they made a remake of The Last of the Mohicans, he could play the part Daniel Day Lewis played...

He would be the mentor. The quiet sure one that everyone trusted and relied on. His presence reassuring and warm. He always sees to the heart of the matter and understands your pain and sorrow. His strength is a shelter in the storm and his wisdom always welcome. His work roughened hands turn soft when caressing vulnerable skin his mouth a benediction to tenderness.
How is that?

He's a physics professor at Trinity, but his secret passion is ancient fae mythology. When he has to think something out, he takes out his bodhran and plays. Sometimes you can see him sitting beneath a tree, head bowed, eyes closed, and his hand flying across the surface of that bodhran.

I complete agree with you on The Last of the Mohicans - Daniel Day Lewis comparison. Those eyes *sighs*
I can also see him as a bit of a rogue riverboat gambler. It's all in the eyes and it's the quiet ones that you should worry about most.

Oh my, Amanda, I LOVE your description! Awesome! Now I'll have difficulty concentrating on work... Maranta, I love the tie-in with ancient fae mythology! Sounds like one of Amber Scott's or Erin Quinn's books! And the riverboat gambler - definitely! I am going to re-read Amanda's yet again... (sigh)

Looks like an artist to me.

A tortured artist. Perhaps even some sort of curator of dark arts objects. And now my muse is dancing. Awesome!

Those beautiful, haunted eyes. Those eyes harbor a dark secret. One he thinks about every single day. He is haunted by it. It all happened so long ago. He is a very quiet man. Keeps to himself. A genius in marketing and highly-sought after in the advertising world. He dates many women, but he doesn’t really see them. He has always known there was never anyone for him except for the girl who lived down the street from him growing up. The younger sister of his best friend. But after that summer their second year of college, twelve years ago, he knew he would never see her again. That is why his eyes are so haunted. Those same eyes go wide with surprise and something else before he quickly shutters them as the new photographer assigned to his latest project walks in the room.
