What did I do instead of writing for NaNoWriMo? Spent all afternoon working on Instagram inspired pages for our favorite characters (I haven’t gotten to Wufei and Relena yet, sorry!)
I’ve been toying with the idea of how social media is or isn’t part of the LAM!verse. For now, it doesn’t really impact much but I do wonder whether to play with it in the future. For instance…
- Does Trowa post his favorite snapshots from his latest travels and geotag them for his friends to track him…and inadvertently gain a following?
- Does everyone get a peak into the intimacy of Duo and Heero’s relationship based on what they post…or do they perpetually lurk?
- Does Quatre leverage social media for advocacy and sniping at competition, or does he throw stuff up with the #blessed tag for the lolz?
- Once it becomes clear Wufei and Relena are a serious item, do they lock down their social media presence or share their lives publicly? Does Relena tease her boyfriend-then-fiance-finally-husband by taking candids of his sleep-deprived state and take polls from the masses about what direction he should take his dissertation? When kids become a thing, does she upload videos of her daughter(s) and Wufei arguing about basic arithmetic or post pictures of Wufei playing with his daughters alongside an old photo of him in Preventers colors loaded to bear with a “#GetYouaManWhoCanDoBoth”?
Serious questions that need answered, I think…
