Hi can you explain the percent thing about andriel to me? I keep reading it in fics and it's so cute but I have no idea what it means.
Hey! So in the third book, Andrew tells Neil that “ninety percent of the time the very sight of Neil makes him want to commit murder”, implying that ten percent of the time he feels something else for Neil. The percentage goes up generally when Neil pushes Andrew and makes him feel something. Another key quote in understanding the percent thing is when Andrew says “nine percent of the time I don’t want to kill you. I always hate you.”
Because Neil makes Andrew feel something, which he hates, because Andrew has been living with his apathy for so long. Its not even a shield anymore. A shield would imply that he’s acting.
I say this because the way the percentage is used in fic (and why i dont use it in mine) is that people have andrew up the percentage when neil does something cute, which isnt what its for. Andrew upped the percentage when neil made him angry or scared or made him care if neil was alive or dead, which means he relies on Neil, which is terrifying to him.
That was a much longer answer than you wanted, but i feel very deeply about the percentages. I hope this helped!
