Q is for Quadral
Quadral means in four parts.
My book is very much about balance and how four different friends, with different strengths and weaknesses somehow come together to make one functioning unit not to mention family.
The four Demi-Angels each represent one of the big four. Like elements, directions, seasons and the big four Archangels...they even represent the four Hogwarts houses, which I didn't do on purpose I just kind of realized one night.
It breaks down like this.
Marissa- Water- Winter- West- Uriel- Ravenclaw
Gia- Earth- Autumn- North- Gabriel- Gryffindor
Penny- Fire- Summer- South- Michael- Slytherin
Z.J.- Air- Spring- East- Raphael- Hufflepuff
The four friends even have four different weapons that they wield and different strengths when it comes to school and life. When I started I was adamant about making sure that even though I am dealing with a Quadral I wanted the four parts to fit together to make a whole and I think I have done that well with my main four. Their faults and strengths line up with each others so that the four pieces of the puzzle just fit. Sometimes it seems like they need to be forced but just give it time and the final product will be four people together as one.
