Character Interview + Contest: Jarrod from A Touch Morbid
What single thing do you wish you had done when you were still alive?
There’s not a hell of a lot different between being alive and being dead. I can do all the same things. Well, except for touching people. Plus, now I pretty much can’t die minus Eden taking me out, and she’s not doing that anymore. I don’t know. I guess I should just say something cliché like I wish I’d gone to Disneyland or some shit.
What's the best part about being part of Eden's territory?
I know Eden’s not gonna turn on me. We’re a team here. At least me and her. And Az I guess. If I’d ended up with Kristen or Madeline or Vaughn, I wouldn’t have that. I got lucky. I don’t ever forget that. When things go bad, Eden and I back each other up.
If you could run one of the territories, could you?
Well…I don’t think our territory runs like the others. We all kind of work together. I don’t want my own territory.
When you first became a Sider, what was your reaction?
Pissed. Instead of being dead like I planned I woke up with no place to go and no one who even remembered who I was. It sucked. But running into Eden and joining up with her crew changed everything. Bad times don't last forever. Kinda makes me wonder what would have happened if I’d stayed alive, you know?
So... I hear you might find someone special this time around. Anything you can say about that?
Not really. She’s…we’re still trying to figure stuff out. Her being mortal makes it kind of… Actually, I shouldn’t say any more. Do I like her? *glances away* Yeah. Everything’s complicated right now, with the Bound and the Fallen after us, so it’s not exactly the best timing.
What's the best kiss you've ever had?
*shifts uncomfortably* It was in the snow…with her. I’m not really good at talking about this kind of thing. Can we change the subject?
Boxers or briefs?
*smirks* Smooth, but no. Nice try though.
