That other ask reminded me, I wanted to mention that I really loved the stuff about Marshal's sensory issues because I very much have had and do have those "space and objects and people and smells and noises oh god make it stop I'm gonna hurl" experiences, and it was honestly delightful and touching to read about characters experiencing and talking about that, especially in a way that felt so natural and real and normalizing and just "hey this is a thing that happens" and I really appreciate it!
Sensory processing issues are a wide spectrum, and I felt like it would only be natural for someone with Marshal’s super enhanced senses to experience moments of overstimulation. Corbin had an itemized lists of faults, but he made the choice early on in Marshal’s life to normalize his upbringing as much as he could. He didn’t make the mistake of interpreting his “everything is Too Much” moments as misbehaving, so Marshal’s POV doesn’t categorize it as good or bad. It IS just a thing that happens, so I wanted to present it as such. Brains are wonderful and terrible and weird and they all absorb their environment differently. I’m really glad it rang true with you, anon.
