Meeting New Characters

I've recently started on a new project in the meantime while I work on Flame Dancer and the third book in the installment of the Flame Cycle. This is a new idea I have, it's going to be a trilogy; and it's my first attempt at a first-person-present-tense. So it's delving into new territory, but it's exciting at the same time! ALSO, it's my first attempt at a ... er, I can't think of what you would call it right now. I'm not sure it's paranormal... but it's a romance, too! (:

Anyway, I'm taking FOREVER to put posts on here, so I think I'm going to do some quickies every now and then instead of devoting my time to make long, heartwrenching posts that I know make each of you cry with such emotion, because my posts are THAT GREAT. [/so joking lol]

Anyway, here: you get to meet the protagonist from my new project, Linked! Her name: Marissa Raye Conman. Before you read, let me explain:

The country she's from is one of which that only sprouted up around 2000, from around southeast Canada. It eventually grew, and it grew a sense of chivalry that hasn't been seen since World War I. It waged war with Canada and got some territory, and then a brief one with the US until an armistice was signed that gave it bits of a few states. Marissa lives in one of these "bits", up in Maine; but they changed the name of their state to Saber. I have yet to see if the timeline will be suitable for me or not, so we'll see; but that's how it is for now.

THE SURVEY WASN'T BY ME!! Yes, this is terribly disorganized, but I'm only copy-pasting this. See this page for the surveys. My friends, I think I have hit the jackpot:

What type of personality does your character have? - I'm upfront; I like to have the last word in any conversation. I tend to be a bit shy around political figures or news reporters (where I am, there's a lot of them) but I don't shy away.
