  1. What is a Personification?
    WEEK V

    A personification is giving an object or an animal human-like characteristics. Personifications of objects should have some parts that belong to the object in general. The personification can be a tree, fingers, potato chips, the sun, the color blue, or even happiness. in layman's terms, personifications give human-like characteristics to nouns (people, places, things or ideas).

    So your job is to make a personification of one or more objects, and then write out a role play example that shows them in action. There will be various types of personifications to choose from, and you get to pick any scene with them. There may be restrictions each week.

    Here is an example:

    Perfume (open)

    In order to think of a well-portrayed personification for your character, you would need to:
    • Brainstorm everything you know about the product you want to personify. If you come up with little or no information, you may wish to conduct some research (Wikipedia is a good base for knowledge).
    • If the product in question comes in multiple colors (perfume, lotions, tissues, pencils, etc.) and types, you may wish to narrow it down to a certain brand and/or type of product.
    • Pick out the most prominent characteristics of the product. These characteristics should be present on your personification.
    • BE CREATIVE~! Creativity will make your work shine~!
    • Be very, very careful if you want to personify something that may violate the forum rules.
    DO NOT
    • Try to use personifications that were already done (such as KanColle, Hetalia, etc.) It would sound fishy if you showed a picture of Tenryuu and slapped your name on her, would it not? If you do that, turn yourself in to the police, mate. You just committed plagiarism.
    • Go overboard with the personification and waste your time. If you really want to make a personification of the Civil War or another major event in history, you may wish to narrow it down to a certain Battle of the war. You may take too much time in making your sheet.
    • Try to make things that seem to be overdone or otherwise too generic. If you make a personification of an animal, try to be as creative (and original) as possible. There are so many cat girls and dog boys out there. Why not a boy who has a short temper?
    • Name your character "Milk" or their personification unless if it fits them. For example, if you wanted to make a personification of the Moon, you can call them "Artemis Lunasta" or a name that fits with what you want to personify. You can also name them "Chocolate" if you can't come up with any unique names. Hell, their names don't even have to be related to the personified product!
    YOUR JOB~!

    • Create personifications using these SIX products
    • You may combine personifications, too (dusty keyboard; cheeseburger backpack, etc)
    • Out of the SIX things (three animals, three things/ideas) you will need to make at least TWO personifications.
    • These personifications should be original!
    • Write out a character sheet for the personifications, and write a writing sample with them in action.
    • You will need to choose wisely~!
    • You have a choice to personify either animals OR objects.
    • To complete the task, you will need to use your critical thinking skills and think outside of the box
    • The two personifications do NOT have to be talking to each other.
    • If you make an animal, if you want to make a dormouse (if you cannot think of anything else), go ahead.
    • They must abide to a Modern Fantasy OR Modern Sci-Fi setting.
    Opossum (open)

  2. Real Name: Jeanette
    Name: Swan
    Age: 23
    Species: Human
    Gender: Female
    Birthday: October 8
    Appearance: Caucasian of around average height for her area (5'5"/163 cm), but with a very petite build. She had a thin face and high cheekbones, and light blonde hair and dark brown eyes. Her hands are small, and her fingers and wrists are slim, because of her upper-crust lifestyle, she has no callouses or scars. As an upper class lady, she is dressed relatively fashionably, and enjoys wearing skirts, dresses, and other fancier forms of clothing any time she gets an excuse. She especially prefers flowing clothes like full skirts, dangling earrings, and bell sleeves.
    Personality: Very quiet by nature, Jeanette is a lady in every way. She is very polite and poised when talking to people, and studies modern and old-fashioned ettiquette as a hobby. In a more casual environment or when she's tired, she is a very neat and organized person; she can't relax in a mess, and doesn't like to get dirty or be around dirty things. It takes a lot to make her raise her voice, and she is more likely to express her anger through actions and avoidance.
    Equipment: none
    Background: Born with a silver spoon in hand, Jeanette is used to fancy scenarios because she has always been around them. She attended a private high school which, while far more rambunctious than the formal events her family business put on, was still stricter than a public school, and in which she was surrounded with similarly well-bred children. She learned how to feign interest in people and things as it was easier than fighting about what she wanted to do, and became very good at hiding hobbies her parents wouldn't like.
