    Default Describe the emotion asked by the user before you with characters from a book

    You describe an emotion with something from a book and then ask for an emotion and the user after you answers with a book. For example-
    Me- how would you feel if you were trying to explain a psychological concept and the people you are explaining it to keep arguing with you?
    Another user- like Augustus when he told grace his attitude towards basketball after the cancer fiasco.


    Got it?

    How would you feel if your parent stopped you from using your phone for 3 days?

    Don't hurt others, intentionally or not, for you don't know what scar you place upon their hearts. Be good to others as your heavenly father is good to you.

    Like Repunzel locked in a tower. (I'm pretty old to be having my parents taking away phone rights )

    How would you feel if you suddenly heard about the death of a near and dear relative?

    (Did I do that right, Becc? I was a little confused by the directions).

    Like when King David had an affair with Bathsheba.

    How would you feel if you wanted to give up on everything?

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    Like grace when peter van houten (an imperial affliction) wasn't who she expected him to be.


    How would you feel if your parents and siblings died in one day right before your eyes?

    Like Elena Gilbert from Vampire Diaries...



    Still on break... just couldn't resist mentioning vampire diaries... it was one of my favorite shows ever (til Elena left.. )

    What if you had to stop a team of terrorists trying to blow up an entire airport?

    Like Peter Wimsey, when he discovers the murder he's on the track of is about to commit another crime. (Can't remember which book that's in, exactly).

    How would you feel if you needed to buy personal items from a store, and the only check-out clerk was your secret crush?

    Probably like the recluse, Emily Dickinson, will feel at the resurrection,
    ...realizing so many read her personal writings / poetry. *That book or poem, by her, of her feelings about that, is yet to be written.

    Ok, so I didn't exactly follow the rules but it was the best I could come up with, and totally love this thread! To keep it going...

    How would you feel if someone you loved dearly committed suicide?

    Like Ron Swanson when brought a salad instead of breakfast food.(I don't read enough.)

    How would you feel if you were thrown into the lion's den?
    It doesn't matter if the world is made of marshmallows, or you just think the world is made of marshmallows. Either way, you're happy.
