So I think I understand what’s been bugging me….
I followed so many fantastic blogs that I follow and follow me, and I’m in love with everyone’s characters and your portrayals, and there are times when I wonder…. is Souji enough??
He’s a soft kid… even in Peacemaker, he was kind and gentle when he wasn’t taking on the role of captain.
Modern Souji doesn’t have the obligation to fight for anyone, and he’s a very soft boy. He likes pastel and art. He loves to dance and bake and be cute….
And there was a moment when I wondered if he was dynamic enough….like somehow he lost some of his… “muchness” as it were…
But I need to realize… or rather I have realized…. I’m playing Souji exactly as he wants to be played.
He’s docile, for sure… he would rather not fight, but if cornered, or incensed enough, he will lash, and he will be determined to send a message of “don’t fuck with me” in his modern verse as much as he would in his canon verse.
There’s nothing wrong with Souji. And nothing wrong with how I play him. I keep thinking maybe I should do something different, and I realize now the reason why I can’t is because it’s not what he wants.
I hope that makes sense, and if you’ve read this thank you so much for reading.
