"A Character's Burden"
My name is Brigette and I am, perhaps, one of the newest characters on the blog. You may have seen me around, as J.D. and Ana let me participate in the Character Chat Parties. But you won’t meet me formally until J.D. writes Dark Liaison, book two of the Dark Heirloom series.
At any rate, I am writing this blog today to let off a little steam. Let me tell you, there’s nothing nice about seeing you’re ex-lover again. Especially when he is in love with another woman. A woman who doesn’t even want him. Or know what to do with him.
I know you haven’t read the book yet because it’s not published, but if you couldn’t already guess, I am talking about Jesu and Jenna. As the only character here that knows what J.D. has planned for the second book … well … my heart aches just thinking about what’s coming.
J.D. is not evil. I know she loves me and is also in pain over what I must go through. But I ask, is there no merci for an unwanted female vampire?
Oh gods … and to think of the dangers I will expose Jenna to! Living in J.D.’s head, Jenna and I have actually become close friends. Of course, if she knew what I am going to do in the next book, she would probably refuse to speak to me. I couldn’t blame her.
And Jesu? I can’t even bear to think about how he will loath me.
I bear witness to all this and keep it locked inside because J.D. asks me to. She wants … she needs a raw expression from them when the time is right. So she can write it down properly. So hard to be a character sometimes. I want to weep. I may be a warrior, but I am still female and with feelings.
J.D. is exploring these feelings with me. Watching, never missing anything, remembering anything she might need later. There is little privacy in her head. This makes carrying the burden that much harder. However, I am honored to be a part of the story. Even if I am used as a decoy.
Stay tuned, darlings. You will see me again in this Saturday’s Chat Party.

P.S. We have a very fun week lined up. The authors are going to talk about actors and actresses to play us in hypothetical movies. I can't wait to see who J.D. picks to play me! I hope it's Jessica Alba!
