Today, I have the opportunity to share with you all an interview that I did with the main character of Dawn Metcalf’s lovely novel Luminous. So, I hope you enjoy the answers that Consuela has to offer!
No. Even if I didn't know what I know now, I'd still say no. I'd like to pretend that it's because I want to dedicate myself to others or take a stand for all that's good in the world, but the truth is that the moment I crossed over, I felt complete. And I didn't need anyone else to tell me that. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
2. How do you feel about your story being out there in the world?
It's a little scary, honestly. Sort of like Peter Parker coming out as Spiderman on the big screen, LOL! I don't want people to look at me differently or act differently around me, but I like the idea that people know there's something special about them and that there's someone out there looking after all of us when we really need it most.
3. What is your favorite skin?
That'd be spoilery! But I do have a special place in my heart for the very first one that I made: my skin of air. It's less like flying and more like riding around the sky. You can see air moving and feel it, like the wind doesn't stop on your face, but blows right through you. It sounds like you're nothing, but it's more like you're everything. It's hard to describe, but that was when I first felt part of something bigger than me.
4. Which member of the Flow is your favorite?
Giovanni Russo. Call him "V". Besides the fact that he can walk through mirrors (how cool is that?), he's really all about helping people. Even when he doesn't feel like he deserves it, when he knows that he is the one that has to do it, he does one hundred percent. I admire that. He's selfless and strong and sweet. I just wish he'd let other people help him sometimes.
And did I mention he's hot? Tall, dark, handsome, speaks Italian, and cut... Yeah. He's hot.
5. Is there anything you would like to add?
You know the phrase, "Don't judge a book by it's cover"? Well, one thing I really got was that no one is what you think they are just by looking at them. Underneath, there's a whole other person, a whole other story, and until you get to know it, you're just making up stuff about them based on nothing at all. The people who share their true selves with you are the ones you'll never, ever forget.
