What do you mean by signature character tunnel vision?

Meaning he zones in on 3-4 characters and just ignores his supporting cast entirely. Even within that group of four he’ll primarily focus on two.

Kardeşim yanımda görüldüğü üzere benden zayıf. Tek korkusu kilo almak. Kola falan içmeyi bıraktı. Ben de yesem içsem derdindeyim.

Uh huh. Right. I’m sure John Wilkes Booth will have a terrible life because of what I named her.
