OC tag

OC tag – Dellie and Grace

Warning: Mentions of suicide and abortion.


As promised, the fun continues… This time we get to explore the characters from the second generation. Note that this takes place right after the ending of this generation, as suggested by the pictures I placed (from the epilogue and the bonus). I thought it would be the right time for them to answer, and I had to pick the time since they’re both deceased now. Also note that Grace is in her mania phase, which makes her answers the way they are now. If you asked her in her depressive state, she’d have probably not responded or said something very different (I am referring to her bipolar disorder).



  1. What is your name? My name is Fidelio Rosenthal. It is a pleasure to meet you.
  2. Do you know why you were named that? I am not sure. Of course, my mother could have watched the opera, but I don’t understand how I would remind anyone of a woman!
  3. Single or taken? I’m single, but I’m afraid I still love my ex-wife.
  4.  Stop being a Mary Sue! I can’t see how anyone would think of me as perfect. I’ve made so many mistakes throughout my life, which I’ve recently gone through in my diary, I am hardly perfect, in my opinion at least.
  5.  What’s your eye color? Dark green. I gather it may be a bit hard to realize since it’s very dark.
  6.  How about hair color? Blond. But I have recently noticed parts of my hair turning gray.
  7.  Have you any family members? Yes, I do. I have three beloved children of mine – Gemma, George and Gilbert, as well as my brother, who is unfortunately still mad at me, his sons and my nephews – Raymond and Raphael, as well as a niece – Roselyn. I also treat his wife Rachel as a part of my family. There are my ex-wife’s parents, Megan and Wade, as well. I and Wade are good friends! I love my family wholeheartedly, and it’s disheartening how I’ve recently had to say goodbye to my mother.
  8.  Oh, how about pets? I don’t have any, but I’ve always adored the cat I gave my mom for her birthday – Twilight is such a lovely girl!
  9.  That’s cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don’t like? I don’t like when someone treats other people in an unkind way and doesn’t show them respect everyone is deserving of. It’s what I’ve tried to teach my daughter ever since she began this ridiculous quarrel with her cousin. Family relations in particular should be of high priority to everyone. But I am far from telling anyone how to live, if they are not my responsibility – like my students or my children.
  10. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do? I love writing and reading, I always have. I had been a teacher for many years (I adore children), but I’ve recently decided to devote the rest of my time to writing.
  11.  Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before? I, unfortunately, have hurt my brother and I hope he forgives me one day, but I also feel like I cannot expect him to, because I will never forgive myself for lying to him. I also am very sorry to have hurt my wife and my boss.
  12.  Ever… killed anyone before? Absolutely not, but I don’t think anyone who is sane would admit to it in front of a stranger who’s asking them rather personal questions…
  13.  What kind of animal are you? I like to think of myself as a worm…A bookworm, to be exact.
  14. Name your worst weaknesses. I am able to easily forgive everyone, and I think it makes me more vulnerable and easier to take advantage of.
  15.  Do you look up to anyone at all? I have always looked up to my mother because of her determination and physical strength.
  16.  Are you straight, gay or bisexual? Straight, and I think it is a bit unfair to include only three sexual orientations in your question. I strongly believe our world is more varied than that. I did not mean to be unkind.
  17.  Do you go to school? Not anymore, but I have for most of my life. *laughs* As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve recently given up teaching.
  18. Ever want to marry and have kids one day? I am divorced, but this doesn’t make me any less proud of my family. Although, I am not sure if I will ever be ready to marry again.
  19.  Do you have fangirls/fanboys? I suppose you could call the people who read my books that…But they may just find it a tad disrespectful.
  20. What are you most afraid of? That I will hurt someone again. I do everything I can to be good to other people, but it does not always go according to the plan. It doesn’t help that I take all my promises to heart.
  21.  What do you usually wear? Simple buttoned shirts and trousers.
  22.  What’s one food that tempts you? I can eat practically anything, but I have to say I adore spaghetti.
  23.  Am I annoying you? It is not easy to annoy me, I fear. Of course you are not!
  24. Well, it’s not over! Great, please go on.
  25.  What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)? I would say high class because I’m a writer many people know. But I would never boast about it.
  26. How many friends do you have? I treat my family as my friends. I used to be friends with my chief, but a misunderstanding happened between the two of us, which I am saddened by. If you count my ex-students, though, I think I have many.
  27. What are your thoughts on pie? It tastes good! I’d love myself a piece of it.
  28. Favorite drink? I’m a coffee addict. Without this divine nectar, I would have never survived a busy life of a father who’s a teacher and a writer.
  29. What’s your favorite place? I only feel secure at home in front of my keyboard, or anywhere with my family. I’m a loner at heart and big crowds make me nervous.
  30.  Are you interested in anyone? I still love my ex-wife. Hopeless case, I’m afraid.
  31.  That was a stupid question. It was perfectly fine. Just because we are divorced doesn’t mean I can’t and won’t take care of her if she needs me in the future. I vowed and, as I’ve mentioned before, I take all my promises to heart.
  32.  Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean? The lake. There is something about the immensity of the ocean that scares me.
  33. What’s your type? A girl who shares my passion for books. Who has a beautiful smile and is devoted to anything she does. Who may be weird for the outside world, but once you get to know her, she turns out to be a beautiful soul, waiting to be loved. A girl, who is later a woman who decides to dump all the years spent together…*sobs* It’s okay, I got carried away. What’s the next question?
  34.  Any fetishes? I am strongly convinced loving my ex-wife doesn’t fall under the definition of a fetish.
  35. Camping or indoors? I’m a homebody and camping also involves a lot of strangers. I would prefer my own bed.



  1. What is your name? Grace Rosenthal. I decided I don’t want to go back to my maiden name. It’s a lot of fuss over nothing, and  I’ve gotten too used to this version.
  2. Do you know why you were named that? I think it is because of my mother. She has  a weird obsession with being a graceful woman.
  3. Single or taken? I’ve recently gone through a divorce.
  4.  Stop being a Mary Sue! I am not perfect, but thank you for the compliment.
  5.  What’s your eye color? Dark brown, almost black. I got it after my daddy.
  6.  How about hair color? Light brown.
  7.  Have you any family members? Three children and parents. I don’t have any siblings. I’m not sure if they never existed, though, because my mother would have probably *coughs* aborted them.
  8.  Oh, how about pets? None, because my beloved mother is allergic to fur.
  9.  That’s cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don’t like? I don’t think it is cool, because I’ve never had a dog because of that. I hate lying of any kind.
  10. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do? I love writing and reading.
  11.  Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before? Probably my husband. But I couldn’t avoid it because of my rules which mean the world to me.
  12.  Ever… killed anyone before? And my children called me crazy. I don’t think this is a serious question, so I will not respond to this one.
  13.  What kind of animal are you? Definitely not anything able to fly. Imagine getting my feet off of the ground with these extra pregnancy kilograms I’ve never lost!
  14. Name your worst weaknesses. My excessive honesty and the fact that I expect the same from everyone else. But I couldn’t have it any other way after my mother messed up my mind as a child.
  15.  Do you look up to anyone at all? I look up to my father. He’s always been my best friend and the only person who truly understood me and knew how horrible the woman I call my mother truly is and what she is capable of.
  16.  Are you straight, gay or bisexual? Straight.
  17.  Do you go to school? No, and I’ve never been able to understand the fascination my ex-husband has with it. I would not come back there even if they paid me…And they don’t even pay that much.
  18. Ever want to marry and have kids one day? I was married and I already have kids.
  19.  Do you have fangirls/fanboys? I suppose not?
  20. What are you most afraid of? Breaking the rules I live by.
  21.  What do you usually wear? Anything colorful and expressive.
  22.  What’s one food that tempts you? Anything sweet!
  23.  Am I annoying you? No, please go on.
  24. Well, it’s not over! I will not repeat myself.
  25.  What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)? High class. I am quite a successful writer, and my parents I currently live with do well, too. My mother’s a businesswoman.
  26. How many friends do you have? Not many. The only person I consider a friend now is my father.
  27. What are your thoughts on pie? Go back to #22. No repeating.
  28. Favorite drink? Tea. My ex-husband and I often joked about him being a coffee person and me – a tea addict.
  29. What’s your favorite place? Waterfall spot. It’s been my favorite place for many years. And this is where I shared my first kiss with Fidelio…
  30.  Are you interested in anyone? In my ex-husband, but I will get over it, I think.
  31.  That was a stupid question. Considering how many times have I already mentioned him throughout this interview, yes, it was.
  32.  Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean? Ocean sounds like a fun idea for a suicide. Very mysterious. But I don’t think I would care to go far enough in the ocean if I were to commit it. I’d probably hang myself.  For now, the lake sounds safer.
  33. What’s your type? Any guy who’s not an ignorant when it comes to classic literature. And believe me if I say they are not that easy to find!
  34.  Any fetishes? Yes, I have some.
  35. Camping or indoors? Are you kidding me? I’d rather not sleep on the ground if I didn’t have to, thank you very much.

  1. Jeeeeeez, Grace, you crazy bugger o.o Well, I did request answers from her because I figured it would be interesting… and I wasn’t wrong.
    Poor Dellie. He was such a sweetheart.
    This was great, same as the others 😀

    1. This is Grace after all, don’t you dare forget! I am a bit sorry I introduced the suicide theme…but Grace has always been a bit too honest and intimidating for a lot of people.
      Ah, Dellie. He holds a special place in my heart.
      Thank you so much. Tomorrow’s Maddie and then we’re done!

      1. She really is o.o I’ll never forget that she’s crazy again, that’s for sure!
        He really is a sweetie 🙂
        Looking forward to tomorrow then!

  2. Aww Dellie is just the sweetest, I miss him. His answer to #33 though :’) </3 aww.
    I still haven't had the chance to go back and see his story in depth, so this was a nice peek into his character. Same goes for Grace. It was cute how many times they both mentioned each other 🙂

  3. Poor Dellie! 😢 He was always so polite, caring and giving, and so hopelessly in love with his wife! ❤ I loved seeing his answers – but no.33 especially nearly gave me tears!
    And Grace was thinking about suicide from very early on I see! This I did not expect, but everything else… yeah. The old Grace we've all come to know and love to hate! 🙂

    1. I know, our Dellie 💔 Oh, sorry for nearly making you cry.
      Grace has always been pretty rapid with her ideas. And she had indeed wanted to end herself for a long time. I didn’t know you hate Grace. I don’t, she was a messed up woman and more than anything I feel sorry for her…

      1. Well yeah, hate might be a strong word… but I can’t say I particularly liked her. She hurt sweet Dellie! And she constantly kept terrorizing her family with her weird obsession about truth. She was a messed up woman for sure..!

  4. I love that Dellie said anyone who is sane would not admit to killing someone in front of a stranger… because Sam actually did! I’m glad you had Grace answer during a manic phase, otherwise if she was in a depressed phase, the answers may have been even more sad. 😦

  5. How good it is to read about them. Their narration in your story was a long time ago. I have to admit that after reading this I missed Dellie and Grace. They are dead now and I can only mention their words and actions. You know that I love Dellie. He is an extraordinary character and I think he is perfect in his own way. It’s sad he will never know that he has a fungirl in Isla Paradiso. Grace told us about her family relations and her current state. I think she would never told so much about herself in a few chapters, (don’t ask why, I have no idea why I think that) and now we have an occasion to read about her life after divorce. It can be consider as special occasion. It’s a pity she divorced with Dellie because of one small detail. But it’s her choice and she lived with that. These artistic souls will always remain in our hearts. Sleep well my dear duo
