  1. What is a Personification?
    WEEK VI

    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 EIGHT ideas.
    • You may combine personifications, too (dusty keyboard; cheeseburger backpack, etc)
    • Out of the EIGHT ideas, you will need to make at least ONE personification.
    • 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~!
    THIS WEEK!
    • You will make personifications of ideas and/or holidays
    • There are no pictures there! Everyone is free to design their own interpretations of an idea.
    • Your interpretations of the holiday should be site-appropriate.
