tfw the heroine of a YA book meets a new male character and the phrase “not much older than her” gets dropped and u stare into the camera because you know that really means HERE’S THE LOVE INTEREST, FOUND HIM, THIS IS HIM, HERE HE IS, PREPARE FOR SMIRKING AND EXCESSIVE DESCRIPTIONS OF EYE COLOR
I've just realized that depending on how you're doing the salt thing I could be gentry-proof because I have a heart condition (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) that requires I eat a LOT of salt. (Other electrolytes too--which makes me wonder, is it only table salt in your 'verse or do other salts work too?) My tears are actually so salty that it's painful to cry. Best of all, POTS is common in young adults--about 1% of teens have it and plenty college age people never grow out of it.
