Beautiful People--April 2015 Edition

Howdy, y'all!

Don't worry, Ilse, I’m keeping an eye out for good editions to help you get to know the characters you've stated interest it. Until then, however, here’s the April 2015 edition of Beautiful People (created by bloggers Cait and Sky).
It features Galina Stevenson, a perfectly normal member of society, and Oliver Wright, the worryingly eccentric guy no one talks to. They are an odd duo from my tale “The Dragon Whisperer of Cherry Lane”.

What is the first memory they have of each other?
Galina got around to bringing him some cookies as a “welcome to the neighborhood” gift. When he opened the door, he has a snake wrapped around him and he was wearing an inside-out shirt. She screamed at the snake and dropped the plate of cookies. The snake was startled and tightened around Oliver, who gasped as oxygen was cut off. Galina stood there screaming while Oliver just sorta fumbled around with this snake. Eventually, of course, he got it off. He thanked Galina for the cookies and complimented her on her screaming.
“You needn't worry about old Max,” Oliver smiled. “He’s not dangerous. Just a bit venomous. Now, as for Charlie-- he is one dangerous snake. He's big, too. Wanna see?”
Then Galina ran home.

Describe their relationship in 3 words.
Odd. Comical. Confusing.

What kind of things do they like to do together?
Once they got around to that, all sorts of things, really.

What was their biggest fight?
It was probably when the two were stuck in Firequain and had to work together, and their personalities clashed and they both wanted to do things their own way, and Galina blamed Oliver for getting them wrapped up in all this, and Oliver blamed Galina for getting them stuck there, and there were just a lot of unhappy emotions.

How far would they go to save each other?
Pretty far, on both sides. Oliver does end up risking his life for her, though it was just sort of an impromptu, “Oh look, fiery flying reptile with sharp teeth is about to kill you. I should probably stop that.”

What are their pet peeves about each other?
Oliver thinks Galina over reacts a lot. She could also dial back on the terrified screams, in his opinion.
Galina thinks Oliver is too noisy, too weird, too careless, and irritatingly adorable. Like, “Dang you stop looking at me with those sparkling eyes I'm trying to be mad at you.”

What are their favorite things about each other?
Galina loves Oliver’s confidence and compassion, and appreciates his sense of humor.
Oliver loves Galina’s level head, charm, and poetic genius.

What traits do they share? Mannerisms, clothing, quirks, looks, etc?
They're both left handed, and they both love mango sherbet more than life itself (slight exaggeration, but you get the gist).

Who has the strongest personality?

How does their relationship change throughout your story?
It goes from neighbors to awkward acquaintances to strained to friendship to mutual siblingship.

Thanks for reading!
