Okay, making guesses. :)

Dmitri:
1. When he first met Alenda (the love of his life), he accidentally fell out of a tree
2. Had a human friend that he had to kill in the end
3. Has the nickname Dima

I'm guessing 2, reluctantly, because I want 1&2 to be real more than 3. :)

Johanna:
1. considered quitting her job at the lab after a chimpanzee exploded in her face
2. is the one who figures out all the details for the chimpanzee time travel experiments
3. was almost killed by a guy who broke into the lab once

I'm going with 2 because I want 1 to be real so baaaad!

I will post, because posting more keeps the ball rolling.

Also, anyone making guesses, there are now three to guess on, the two above and mine! Also, leave one of your own when guessing!

I'mma roll over into other projects I'm working on rather than beat the same characters to death.

Poe is an urban fantasy heroine-type chick. So with that in mind, catch the lie:
1) She is blood-bonded to her best friend.
2) She gained magic powers after receiving a bone marrow transplant.
3) She has magical tattoos she can use in spells.

@Manu I'll go with 1, so either me or Kat will get it right :P

Mine was 2, Dmitri had no human friend

@katfireblade I pick 2 :)

Luna:
1. Has stronger magic than her father
2. Has divination cards which were made by her father
3. Goes unconscious when she divines

I'm going to guess 2.

3) She has magical tattoos she can use in spells.
I think this one is 3?

I'll go with Kai for mine:
1)She prefers plants to people.
2)She knows a lot about "ancient magic".
3)Has a lot of trouble recognising people.

@Manu I'll go with 1, so either me or Kat will get it right :P

1 is the lie - Johanna won't quit science that easily, so when that chimpanzee exploded on her, she was like "Uuugh, that's disgusting. Poor thing, hope it didn't suffer. Now let's clean up and find out WHY the hell it just exploded."

I love the ideas of both #2 and #3, so I hope #1 is the lie :P

Luna:
1. Has stronger magic than her father
2. Has divination cards which were made by her father
3. Goes unconscious when she divines
Random guess, #1 is not true.

I'll go with Kai for mine:
1)She prefers plants to people.
2)She knows a lot about "ancient magic".
3)Has a lot of trouble recognising people.
Judging from the excerpt you posted for the march challenge, I think it's probably #2.

Myriel:
1. hates living with her aunt so much that she fakes her own death
2. has two younger brothers that she has to take care of
3. ends up helping Drystan negotiating a peace treaty

@SecretRock got this one, the lie really is #3. But no worries @Manu, the tattoo thing is real too, just not a power Poe has. That one belongs to someone else. :)

I'll go with Kai for mine:
1)She prefers plants to people.
2)She knows a lot about "ancient magic".
3)Has a lot of trouble recognising people.

I'm guessing #2 for this one.

*victory air punch!*
I don't even care I got it wrong, I just love the exploding chimp is a Thing! Also, I love her reaction!

Myriel:
1. hates living with her aunt so much that she fakes her own death
2. has two younger brothers that she has to take care of
3. ends up helping Drystan negotiating a peace treaty

So I'm going with 2 again because 3 seems real and 1 just seems like a lot of fun.

Okay, let's play with another character....

Raven:
1) Has a son who has a pet goat
2) Knew that his wife foresaw her own death
3) Is disgusted when he catches Poe in the middle of an erotic dream

If these seem a little random, I might still be learning about Raven.... >.>

The pet goat seems unusual for a contemporary urban fantasy. Unless they live on a farm. I don't care, I'm picking the pet goat anyway.

Same character, different lies:

Myriel:
1. is attracted to Drystan
2. gets thrown into the dungeons by Drystan
3. has met Drystan before in a tavern without knowing who he is

For mine 1 was the lie, so you got it right @Manu :D

@SecretRock I pick 2

@katfireblade I also pick 2 :P

@Manu I pick 3

Jascha:
1. His favourite greek food is moussaka
2. He feels comfortable wearing a suit
3. He likes swimming

Yep! All of you got mine right.

2) Knew that his wife foresaw her own death
3) Is disgusted when he catches Poe in the middle of an erotic dream

1 sounds really fun, and 3 just seems like a normal reaction, so I'm going with 2.

Jascha:
1. His favourite greek food is moussaka
2. He feels comfortable wearing a suit
3. He likes swimming
I'm guessing 2 here as well, since a lot of your characters seem like living disasters. No offence.

Matias:
1)He's been training to join a military organisation called the Fireguard for most of his life.
2)Anything he tries to draw looks about fifty degrees off of what it was.
3)He explores the forest near his house when he has free time because he likes the wildlife.

Those who live just outside a city tend to spend a lot of time in them. ;) Yeah, the goat is real. Plus, seriously, just surrounding Seattle is goats, horses, and llamas, and smack in the middle of the city my next door neighbors have chickens. Freakin' chickens. None of these people live on a farm. We be weird, man. :)

@katfireblade I also pick 2 :P

1 sounds really fun, and 3 just seems like a normal reaction, so I'm going with 2.

I, er...eh? Disgust seems like a normal reaction? I mean, not embarrassment, or thinking it's funny, or even empathy for how the person being caught feels (because it's humiliating and it's not like anyone has control over their dreams), but disgust? I'm...well, I'm completely flabbergasted.

....that's not the reasoning I would have thought would lead to the right answer but yes, the 2s have it. Raven had no clue it was coming.  :D

Same character, different lies:

Myriel:
1. is attracted to Drystan
2. gets thrown into the dungeons by Drystan
3. has met Drystan before in a tavern without knowing who he is

1 is the lie. Anything to do with attraction or romance is always the lie.

Jascha:
1. His favourite greek food is moussaka
2. He feels comfortable wearing a suit
3. He likes swimming

Going with 2. He might clean up well, but he doesn't strike me as liking it.

Matias:
1)He's been training to join a military organisation called the Fireguard for most of his life.
2)Anything he tries to draw looks about fifty degrees off of what it was.
3)He explores the forest near his house when he has free time because he likes the wildlife.

I'm going with 3 for the lie. I'm pretty sure 1 was confirmed in one of your submissions (though I might be mixing up submissions) and 2 seems reeeeeally specific.  :D

Okay...Poe again:

1) Once found a dead frog the size of a small dog
2) Bounced back from her illness with a new zest for life
3) Had her eyes inexplicably change color

OMG that's so funny, how do the other choices fall into the disaster category though? :P I just went with normal things

But yeah, both you and Kat are right. I'm sure he would clean up good too, but it's most likely a blue moon thing :P and he'd find it a bit restrictive

@katfireblade I guess 2 cause it seems too normal :P

Sarett:
1. She once got locked outside her flat as a cat because her hidden key outside went missing
2. She got caught in a bear trap (funnily enough) as a bear
3. She tried to shift into cheetah and ended up with a furry spot cheetah pattern instead

mmmm.... I'll guess 1 for no real reason

Here's mine:

Isar
1. Can't remember if he killed his father
2. Thinks his cousin is his sister
3. Broke off his engagement after his father's death

For goals unreached and dreams to strive:

@katfireblade I guess 2 cause it seems too normal :P

*snicker* My reputation proceeds me it seems.

You have it right @Sheepy-Pie!

I might have made that one too easy.... >.>

Sarett:
1. She once got locked outside her flat as a cat because her hidden key outside went missing
2. She got caught in a bear trap (funnily enough) as a bear
3. She tried to shift into cheetah and ended up with a furry spot cheetah pattern instead

For this one I vote 3. Though one does wonder how a slinky little cat couldn't finagle her way inside.


I mean, seriously....

And I'm so sure I'm right I'm already poking fun!  :P

Here's mine:

Isar
1. Can't remember if he killed his father
2. Thinks his cousin is his sister
3. Broke off his engagement after his father's death

@mathgnome, I'm voting 3, mostly because it's the least interesting of the three choices. :)


Okay, lets keep the ball rolling....

Riordan (name subject to change):
1) Has prematurely white hair
2) Has his mouth sewn shut with magical thread
3) Is something of a weakling


Also @Manu, you never told us who got yours right!

I'll guess three, because I really like the other two options and want them to be true :)

@katfireblade  you're right! number three is false. (doing this for characters is a lot harder than doing it for myself)

I'll do another
Tirin
1. Is a widower
2. Killed his parents
3. Is supposed to be dead

2? Just a completely random guess of the top of my head.

Benny:
1. Has a daughter he has never seen.
2. Is human.
3. Works under the professional name, 'Scarface'.
