How did you get the idea for the star child au? Did it just come to you or did something inspire it? Also, good job on the writing, good stuff.
Okay, so this might be a bit long, so bare with me here.
I’m obsessed with stars - not necessarily the scientific aspect of stars, but I like that we name the stars, and that they have lives just like us? Like, they are born, they live, and then they die. (Really dramatically, but still.)
I was looking through Pinterest and saw a comic for another idea I had - Lance being the person embodiment of the Ocean, and he had glowing blue eyes, and I just loved it a lot. That’s where I got the idea for the glowing eyes/freckles/tears part.
I’d had this idea for a character of my own for awhile, I just didn’t know how to put it out there, and then I kept seeing pictures of Lance with glowing freckles and tears, and other things that just fueled my desire to make the AU for Lance being something like a child of the stars.
Originally it was going to be Lance was made from star dust - and then I remembered the entire universe is made from star dust and I was like “No, that won’t work.” And then it hit me - falling stars.
And that’s how it all started, pretty much.
