Chatterbox: Inkwell

I was thinking,

I was thinking, we could start a new story chain. You make up a new character, but they CAN'T be from the 21st century (they'll wind up there later). They have to be related to someone famous but NOT an actor, actress, singer, etc.

Mine is: Dehlia Ludington.

Related to a heroine of the American Revolution: Sybil Ludington.

Lives in Fredericksburg NY, 1777

Age: Unkown

Short length blonde hair, blue-gray eyes, exactly 5 feet, rather pale.

Hope ya'll like my idea!

How famous do they have to be? And can I use a real person?

They don't have to be very famous at all! Your character can't be real, but the person whom they're related has to be. And it' okay if the person they're related to didn't have to really have a daughter, sister, brother, etc. Just have with this! I'm just combining my two loves, writing and history with this, and thought others might like it too!

How your character gets to the 21 century is your own choice! Mine will be transported through a book, sort of a Magic Tree House-Emerald Atlas twist thing. You can do the same or something else! Pretty much anything!

Name: Maxwell Xavier Frankenstein, called Max

Relation: Son of Ernest Frankenstein. His uncle is Victor Frankenstein, the creator of the Creature.

Age: 14

Apperance: Brown hair, brown eyes. Brown coat.

Personality: Curious, for the most part. Quiet. He won't go out of his way to be nice, but he will help if asked. He doesn't have the best relationship with his father because Ernest refuses to let him read any books or do any sort of work outside of school in chemistry and anatomy. Ernest also refuses to tell him why he doesn't like science, and his reaction encourages Max's studies.

Lives in Zurich, Switzerland, 1852. January.

How he gets to the 21st century: Even after Captain Walton watched the Creature walk away and wrote to Ernest, Ernest couldn't really think the Creature had just gone off and died, could he? Well, of course, he just wanted to forget everything and move on, but the Creature had other plans.... *giggles*
