Aaaaand I'm back (you getting sick of me yet? ^^;;) I was trying to think of nicknames for Bill to give Mason and Mephis, since that's his thing and I can't imagine him calling either of them by their real names (especially his mom). I was thinking he'd call Mason "Grey Pine" but I'm having trouble deciding one for Mephis. I figure he'd give her a name that's passive-aggressive but still kinda fits somehow? Maybe some sort of flower with negative symbolism, like Asphodel, Wormwood, or Marigold?
Hey, I love Grey Pine! : D
As for Mephis, how about him calling her random names, changing them constantly? A bit of a snide way to remark how she had chosen a name for him, but never gave it to him and then proceeded to forget what it even was. So there, I can’t bothered to remember your name, either. How does it feel, ma?
