a few years back during chapter two (around page 106) i based percy’s room mate off a really good friend of mine who, at the time, was my room mate too. since then he has transitioned and changed names. in real time this has taken several years but it’s only been a few months in the world of MP!
at first when i realized my comic held this outdated version of my friend i was sad and worried that this would hurt him, but when i thought about it more i realized: 1. this would give his fictional self and percy so much to bond over and so much support and 2. i could change this.
though MP! will not span multiple in universe years, i can at least follow my friend’s trajectory thru self discovery. i don’t think MP! will be long enough to get him to the right image but i can at least move towards it.
When Anakin Skywalker was a Padawan he contemplated leaving the Jedi Order. Obi Wan told him that if he decided to leave, he would also leave in order to keep his promise to Qui Gon Jinn and finish Anakin’s training.
