I rarely see a lot of questions about our characters and their KIDS (more than one or two questions in the occasional meme) SO I made up a quick silly list of questions of my own! ^u^ Feel free to share, or add your own!
(Excuse any typos that remain - I really can’t see them no matter how many times I read through a thing, and I read this many times lmao.)
Ask me about my characters and their children! 8D
How many children does your character have? How many would they ideally WANT?
How did the children become a part of the family? Were they born into it? Adopted? Somehow else? Talk about the journey! :D
What kind of a parent is the character? Does their own idea match that? Do they think they are a good parent? What are some of their insecurities as a parent? How about their partner?
What are the meanings behind the children’s names, if they DO have meanings? Were they named after someone?
What do the children call their parents?
Talk about the children! What do they look like? What are their personalities like?
The children’s first words?
What are some of the character’s favorite memories from their kids’ childhoods?
What are some of the character’s favorite things to do with their children?
What about the CHILDREN’S favorite things to do with their parents? :D This isn’t necessarily the same thing!
What’s playtime like? What kind of games does the character tend to play with the children? Are they GOOD at it? :D
Does the character (or their partner, or BOTH) have some mutual hobbies or pastimes with the children that aren’t strictly playing? Like some crafts or sports that they share and have fun with?
Does the character have any meaningful items they pass on to their children? Like an old toy, or a piece of jewelry, or some other family heirloom?
What are some of the skills or things the character teaches to their children? Some family traditions, or particularly important life lessons? How about their partner?
Is there a toy/book/game the character is almost as excited about as the child (or even MORE so than the child? :D)
Sleep time! Talk about the sleeping arrangements and rituals of the family through the years!
Talk about what happens when a child gets sick.
Talk about a time when the children did or said something that was both hilarious and definitely embarrassing for the parents!
Talk about a time the children scared their parents.
Talk about a time the children made their parents very proud.
Talk about a time when the children got into trouble!
What kind of people do the children grow up to be? What do they do?
Snapshot! Describe a scene or a full day from the family’s life. It could be anything from a normal daily routine, or some special day and what happened that day. ^u^
Has having children changed the character? How?
Wildcard! Share at least three of your favorite headcanons about the character and their children!
“When I was auditioning… they would send me the log lines of the character and if it said beautiful or gorgeous or pretty even they would delete it before they sent it me, because I would immediately call them and go ‘I will not be cast, It’s not going to happen!’ Not to put myself down or anything but I just always wanted to be a comedian.” [x]
i think gwen is demonised because she's a crappy character who needs to be saved every two minutes, not because of a ship
I’ve had people tell me over my time writing Gwen to delete my blog and kill myself because “Ben and Kevin are canon, sorry.” Sorry, not sorry, Gwen / Kevin is canon so ya’ll can deal with it.
“—who needs to be saved every two minutes.”
u goin’ learn 2day
secrets of the omni.trix: gwen gets pretty much EATEN by flourana aliens after PUSHING BEN OUT OF THE WAY, ben thinks she’s dead, gwen saved herself, fought her way through and showed up to HELP BEN LATER
all that glitters: gwen was drained to the point of death by mike, ben and kevin come to save her, got rekted, gwen saved herself, defeated mike and went to make sure the boys were okay.
back with a vengeance: gwen entered the null void to get ben, who was stuck, and saved his ass
max out: gwen was dragged under water by xenocytes and saved herself while ben and kevin freaked out. also protected ken, ben and kevin from a blast that would have killed them
darkstar rising: ben and kevin GET CAUGHT by mike, gwen escapes and comes back to save em
war of the worlds: protected kevin from being killed by the highbreed commander
in charms way: lost her powers to charm.caster, got them back by thinking of a plan. ben and kevin helped but in the end it was all her.
time heals: FUCKING BROKE THE TIMELINE AND FIXED IT HERSELF
hit em where they live: was kidnapped by zombozo, along with her aunt, was tied up and mocked while zombozo thought of a way to kill her. saved herself and her aunt before ben and kevin even showed up.
map of infinity: saved herself ( and kevin ) from a pit of acid in the necrofriggian temple
deep: on a planet that was like 80% all water ( and they were near the core ) gwen was DRAGGED FROM THE SHIP BY AN AQUATIC TENTACLE ALIEN and fought it off herself. also saved kevin from being crushed by the pressure of being so deep in the ocean without his suit by blasting him to the ship so he could absorb it. she thought of that in seconds. also saved ben and kevin from a swarm of aliens ready to eat them with her energy shields.
And that’s only a FEW times Gwen has saved the boys asses, and herself, ‘cause I’d be here all day if I had to list them all. Are there times when Gwen needed saving? Yes. But so does Ben and Kevin. Being saved doesn’t make you weak or a shitty character, Gwen makes mistakes too and has to deal with the consequences, but these three look out to each other because they are family so if you’re gonna demonize Gwen based on how many times she needed to be saved then you should look at Ben and Kevin, because I can list off a shit ton of episodes Ben and Kevin were trapped or taken and needed the other two to save them.
I mean if you don’t like Gwen’s character, fine, but saying it’s because she needs to be saved every two minutes is ridiculous when both boys are in the same boat.
Also Kevin praises up the fact that Gwen is more powerful than him ( highbreed:
i defeated tennyson. what chance has the likes of YOU?”, kevin: me? not much.. but her? *points at gwen*” ) So just throwing that out there.
