I forget just what site I was on when I found this one of Benji, but I was pretty sure you ladies would enjoy it. For my money, it's proof positive that he doesn't have to strip down to his undies to get your attention--or to say a word. He just has to give you that "look."
So how does that look translate into words? How can you describe it without using a picture? I think what you have to do is to focus on the reaction of the person looking into those arresting eyes, which is the tack I've taken in writing Renegade. I took that look, made him Zetithian, made him really tall, and made him (sorry Benji!) a virgin.
He's finally found a girl who does it for him, though, and he's got to woo her, but, never having paid much attention in "How To Entice A Female 101," he's clueless. I think the idea of a Zetithian man who doesn't know anything about women is sort of fun, particularly after the other guys who were all experienced in some way. This time, it's the girl who knows more than the guy, but she's wanting to go back to her old boyfriend, and it's our hero's job to make her change her mind, and his awkwardness is just part of his charm.
Of course, a tall Zetithian who looks like Benji shouldn't have much trouble doing that, should he? What are your thoughts?
