“I think of him having these really lovely, soft lips - practically bee stung - as if they’d just been kissed”
—dazzle-camouflage, describing my character Michael while we’re talking character designs
I don’t think anyone here is going to appreciate how PERFECTLY that fits Michael until I get published (hypothetically speaking); I don’t think I ever describe Michael’s facial features in detail in the novel, but hot damn
but I’ll go ahead and say that just in general he’s a 22 year old former New Yorker living in California lead assistant animator of a fictional analog to Disney’s Snow White fierce and mature and intense and gentle all at once and also gay and suffering from I guess what could be described as a very extended bout of situational depression and what I foresee in the future if the books is successful is lots and lots of smut fanfiction involving him and his love interest in the story, Evan.
…oh, also if I had to relate him to a Disney character, it’d probably be Elsa. Actually I’ve been messing around with a mash-up on piano of his signature unrequited love song (still untitled) with “Let it Go,” so that may or may not happen /o/
I like to think of Michael with his full lips licking a sticky line of icecream that’s dribbled down his arm from the cone - the icecream, of course, having melted in the summer heat - and sucking at the heel of his hand where it’s pooled. Evan watches unable to do much but wish they weren’t somewhere so public.
…I NEVER DREAMED THAT I WOULD SEE A KATE BEATON IMAGE USED IN RELATION TO MY CHARACTERS, AND ALSO SUCH SUGGESTIVE SCRIBBLE FICS
BUT LO AND BEHOLD
WHOOPS MY HAND SLIPPED
Ahahahaha oh no, poor Evan!
