hi, you've ruined me. i've been following your andy stories for a while but i fell behind so i spent the other day catching up on them which lead to spending all day today reading the maida and luis stuff and!!! i love it all so much!!!! they're so great!!!! (i have finals to get ready for but i spent so much of this weekend thinking about your amazing ocs (and i have no regrets)!!!)
AHHHHHHHH THANK YOU!!
Sometimes having OCs is like moving from a group LARP to playing with barbies in your corner yourself and it’s kind of sad, so people appreciating them is AMAZING, thank you! Andy and Maida are definitely my loves. (Ironically I’m the most like Luis, the one people “can’t really get a feel for”. Which says something about me and how introverted I am I guess. XP)
The very next sentence in my current WIP is about Maida picking Andy up at the airport!
…Oh oops, except for the fic I started while I was cooking dinner. In the stream Ngozi let loose 0.5 facts about one of Kent’s teammates, and I have currently half-developed him and given him a girlfriend, whom I now know 10,000 things about. :D So that might be coming out sometime too, especially if we see any of this character in the updates in a couple weeks.
(I mean really, in a male-centric fandom like this, you kinda have to put up with het fic to get women on the scene sometimes. And hey, it ends up contributing to the romance genre’s massive labour of getting women to raise their fucking standards for men as romantic partners. And I just read Cat Person by Kristen Roupenian, about a girl who works way too hard to make a date with an insecure guy work out, and am feeling very strongly that we all need to raise our fucking standards.)
