Thoughts on Perc'ildan? Just as a hypothetical thing ofc
Very positive. They were a big ship in early days CR (what with the I give Percy as kiss and say “let’s get out of here you beautiful bastard”) and I for one am v much here for it. You’ve got a noble ponce with a tendency towards theatrics and a thief/assassin who grew up on the street and has little patience for nobility but just as much love for overblown gestures. And one of them wears his heart on his sleeve and the other refuses to discuss what’s going on in his head but they’re still always there for each other, so very similar and also nothing alike, and––
It’s good shit, man.
(My personal favorite aspect of them to write is the sort of nebulous post-44 area, where whatever they were or had has fallen apart and all they’ve got left is the nostalgia and the grief and the hope. I like the moments where they come back from that, where they figure out how to move forwards, and how to do that together. Also, I feel like there’s a lot of well-meaning oneupmanship between them. They really are quite similar.)
