Beautiful People: Sibling Edition!

And we're back! For this time's Beautiful People, we're focusing on siblings! (Or characters with sibling-like relationships.)

But first, what is Beautiful People?

Beautiful People is a blog link-up hosted by myself and Cait @ Paper Fury. Every month, we post 10 questions for you to answer about your characters to get to know them better.

How does it work?
You take the 10 questions and answer them to the best of your ability. Post them on your blog, then come back and link up with us here! Feel free to check out the other participants' posts as well! It's a great way to make new friends. Note: For this edition, we're focusing on siblings, but if you don't have any sibling characters, feel free to use characters that have a sibling-like relationship.
