A well-meaning local journalist thought it might be interesting to interview the protagonists of Dancing on the Dark Side by Máirín Fisher-Fleming. He may have ‘bitten’ off more than he can chew…
Are the characters fictional or real?
Ciaràn: I’m something from your worst nightmares. You’d better hope I’m fictional.
Bliss: Stop being melodramatic. Look at him. I wish my nightmares were about him. I can see you staring at his name. I thought it was weird the first time I saw it, too. It’s pronounced KEER an -- and it’s adorably Irish, just like him. And to answer your question, we’re realistically fictional. Or fictionally realistic. (scratches her head, puzzled)
Ciaràn: Like that makes sense.
Moving on then. When and where is the story set?
Bliss: Present day Salem. Specifically at Windhaven College of the Arts.
Ciaràn: But sometimes we venture into Boston. It’s a good place to…uhm…eat.
Bliss: Ciaràn’s the TA for my Advanced Contemporary dance class at Windhaven. I’ve never met anyone who can dance like him. In his spare time he manages a coffee house near the university.
Ciaràn: She's omitting a fairly important bit of information. It’s okay Bliss, you can tell him.
Bliss: But what if he's from…the Order?
Ciaràn: We’ll risk it. I’m a vampire. Just over three hundred years old—
Wait. A dancing vampire? Seriously?
Ciaràn: Do you have a problem with that? Dance is very much a part of my culture.
Ciaràn: No. Before I became a vampire, I was Sidhe,
Bliss: He doesn’t get it. He's got that 'this guy's a girl?' look. The Sidhe are the Fair Folk of Ireland. You know…Sheee?
Ciaràn: Saying it louder and slower won’t explain it any better.
Bliss: Someone took an extra helping of sarcasm tonight. It's better than telling him you used to be a faery.
Uh…right. So what is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
Bliss: Where would you like me to begin? First there’s the bitch patrol at college. They don’t get how hard I worked to earn my TA position. One of them thinks I slept my way into it. Then there’s my ex. He’s a real piece of work. And don’t get me started on the Order. They’re just hell bent on offing anyone remotely supernatural.
Ciaràn: You could also add my little sister who is discovering just how powerful her magick is. Throw in a bumbling Shifter and we have conflict all over the place.
What is the personal goal of the character?
Ciaràn: I’m terrified that the same thing that happened to my first love will happen to Bliss. I can’t let that happen. It was my fault. I have to protect her, regardless of the cost. My goal is to keep her safe. From me.
Bliss: That’s so sweet… I’m determined to win a place in a major dance company. The last thing I need is another messy relationship. But there’s just something so familiar about Ciaràn. It’s like I’ve known him all my life. Or in a past life.
