Ugh. Going to a convention tomorrow and having trouble getting my sleep schedule on track to decent hours for it. Can tell this is going to be a pain.

But hey, some insight into Misty! A good while back something I kind of noticed about her and her role in certain things is she didn't really have much sense of agency herself or investment in anything beyond her loyalty to Sareena and I thought, hey, that's not a bad character motivation in its own right. So decided to go down that avenue and kind of see what comes of it, like has been going on with the fairly last minute decision to crank up Lillian's uncertainty in the face of everything with Alex.

That said something that has been planned for a long time is the dating thing. For a long, long while pictured that as a hobby of Misty's, something she spends a lot of time with, but had zero chance to work it in anywhere. But it dovetails nicely with the other idea so good place to integrate it a bit.

Have we gone into how Sareena and Misty met before? It feels like we have but I can't recall it being mentioned before this.

Yeah, Misty's sort of like Andy in Blues in that she feels comparatively like a utility-main-character whose story arc isn't as apparent, so was nice getting to see some deeper thoughts with her. Will say that out of everyone in the BP half of the cast, she's easily my favorite to draw in fight scenes, at least.

I've always seen Sareena as a very dark character, to the point that she's an Anti-Villain. Will say that feeling insignificant because of your position as the youngest member of a large family DOES really resonate to me. Can see wanting to make an impact given that.


Okay, fuckit, be honest; was anyone working under the assumption Misty and Sareena were more than friends and are surprised that Misty is actually looking for someone to date?

The blind date thing is interesting but I always knew Sareena and Misty were straight.

Huh. I think fanfiction might've over-written what little understanding I already had of social norms.
