acerbicaftertaste asked: 4? 13?

4. I think one theme I enjoy writing about is the theme of good intentions vs the consequences. I think the majority of my characters have some sort of good in mind that they like to achieve, but then they do terrible things along the way, or they otherwise cause something that’s just overall bad whether they mean to or not. It’s the easiest to follow this theme with heroes or self-proclaimed heroes, and they can still do good things overall, but it doesn’t excuse the bad. It still manages to find its way into not-so-heroic characters, though. A lot of people (or my characters at least) do things under their own assumption that it’s right, but I think my more villainous characters are either more willing to recognize that they’ve done bad things and they feel it justifies what they’re doing, or they’re completely blind to the damage they’re causing. My villains don’t kick dogs and babies without any reason at all. They just don’t. But it doesn’t mean it’s an adequate reason.

I know this doesn’t apply to ALL of my characters, but I find that it’s a theme that crops up often.

…But yeah, it’s really no wonder so many of my characters are morally grey.

Sorry for rambling. Apparently, I had a lot to say on that topic.

13. My favorite writers? Oh jeez. I… really can’t pick. I’m sorry.

acerbicaftertaste asked: In honor of Azzie, I ask for story secrets. Also your favorite soup.

Reina is a robot.

…Heh, in seriousness, there are only so many story secrets I can share without getting into spoiler territory. I guess I could say that one reason Reina wears a mask is actually a really good reason.

Favorite soup? I like a lot of soups, and it depends on what strikes me. I do like Miso soup, though. And beef stew is one of my favorites.

So… many… baked… goods…

And not even done.

I can’t even eat these myself because braces.

…Screw it. I’m saving the rest of the baking for morning.
