2, 3, 12, and 15 for Nora please!
2. Did you design them with any other OCs/characters in mind?
Nora was always Olivia’s and Garrus’ daughter. I went through several iterations of how that happened before I landed on her canon, but she was created as their daughter.
3. How did you choose their name?
I’m not actually sure. I recently found some fic babble about her that dates back to late 2014, so she’s been around longer than I thought, but I don’t know where I came up with her name.
12. What have you found to be most difficult about creating (any form of) art for your OC?
Remembering that she has another brother, for one thing. She and Quentus have a very well-developed relationship, but I have, like, ten words of her interacting with Nico.
Without giving too much away about her fic, I have a lot of trouble managing a certain aspect of her anxiety. Most of her anxiety I can write just fine (because, hi), but there’s one part of it that is extremely specific and it’s hard to balance “her anxiety is a legitimate and real thing, let her feel it” with “she’s also 26 and been in therapy a good chunk of her life, and she’s an N3 soldier and team leader who’s literally on a mission right now; she has all the skills to shut it down.”
15. What’s one thing about your OC that can make you laugh?
“I’m sorry. Are you unclear about the concept of ducking?”
