Beautiful People Sibling Edition: Bryce & Matt

It's time for this month's Beautiful People! Yay! This is a link-up hosted by Paperfury and Further Up and Further In where you answer questions about your characters. I participated in Beautiful People #1#2#3 and the villain special last year, Beautiful People Author EditionBeautiful People Valentine Edition and Beautiful People #7. This link-up has been just so helpful with character development. 

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you probably know my favorite pair of siblings are Bryce and Matt from Subsapien. I love these boys and they have such an amazing relationship. They are some of my characters that make me fangirl the most. If you'd like to participate in this link-up yourself, check out either Paperfury or Further Up and Further In to see how. Here we go!

1. What is the first memory they have of each other?
Queue the feels. Since both of them were raised in a laboratory they had to discover each other. When Bryce was four and Matt was two, Bryce's handler (scientist) was punishing Bryce by not feeding him. Matt was placed in the little kennel next to him and kept Bryce from starving by pushing bits of his food into Bryce's cage.

2. Describe their relationship in 3 words.
Unconditional. Devoted. Inseparable.

3. What kind of things do they like to do together?
They grew up in a tough environments but in the few happy times they've had with each other. They like to play the game they made up called Pounce where they try to surprise tackle each other and if they succeed one of them gets a point; Matt telling Bryce about the things he's learned about the Outside world during his cleaning shift; and Bryce watching Matt learn how to write.

4. What was their biggest fight?
Bryce keeps a lot of secrets from Matt, because he wants to protect his innocence, and Matt got frustrated with him and they had a blow out.

5. How far would they go to save each other?
To death. They would die for each other without a thought, especially Bryce. Matt is Bryce's world because he had to be both a brother and a parent to him.

 I need to draw a picture of them actually happy. ^ ^' 

6. What are their pet peeves about each other?
Matt doesn't like that Bryce is so secretive, and Bryce doesn't like that Matt can be too kind in his eyes to the point he could endanger himself.

7. What are their favorite things about each other?
Matt loves that his brother is reliable and selfless, and Bryce even thought it irks him sometimes he admires and even envies Matt's kindness and his inner good that Bryce feels he lacks himself.

8. What traits do they share? Mannerisms, clothing, quirks, looks, etc?
Both are very passionate and have the same goal which is to escape from the labs. They look very similar hence how they discovered they were brothers and they both swish their tails when their angry and purr when they're happy.

9. Who has the strongest personality?
I supposed Bryce since he's more hotheaded and a bit obnoxious at times while Matt is more calm and careful with his words.

10. How does their relationship change throughout your story?
The two of them are separated and each of them have to deal with that and a lot changes in their individual lives, but the way they care about each other doesn't change.
