Character take over week: How do you feel about your author?
(Setting: I’m not actually with them in this one. Reggie and Nev are in an interview-ish room together. The question is written on a piece of paper.)
Reggie: *reads paper* Oh.
Nev: What is it? *comes to read over his shoulder. He holds it up for her to see* Ooh.
Nev: How do we actually feel about her?
Reggie: Well, she’s not bad.
Nev: She can be pretty terrible sometimes.
Reggie: *nods* Definitely.
Nev: But I like her. Most of the time.
Reggie: *eyebrow* Most of the time?
Nev: Yeah, when she’s not making me answer questions like yesterday’s.
Reggie: True. How did you handle that?
Nev: *looks away* I… handled it. How do you feel about Lisa?
Reggie: *reads paper again* Well, *rubs back of his neck*
Nev: *studies him* What?
Reggie: Well, I’ve been in her head for a long time. We’re… I’m…
Nev: Her favorite, we know.
Reggie: No, no, I wasn’t going to use that word. We’re just-
Nev: You’re her oldest character, of course you’d be special to her. You’re her baby.
Reggie: OKAY WELL.
Nev: *laughing* It’s OKAY, Regillion. No one’s jealous about it. Someone had to be her first and you’re it.
Reggie: *sigh* Okay, yeah. I’ve just been with her for a long time. Like seven years. I’ve gone through a lot of variations. She’s… she’s home.
Nev: Can I say ‘aww’?
Reggie: Shut up.
Tomorrow: Any words for future fans of you?
