I'd like to participate in the Tapastic Valentines Exchange.
. . .
Honestly, I don't have many characters to do anything valentine-y with- well, not on this site, anyway.
Sure, I have Charlene and Ryan ([link], and that certainly would be an interesting date, since they haven't really gone on a date before.
Or I could use Cynthia and Rachid, from RFS, ([link], but I don't believe a pairing would work very well, especially since they're on a journey right now.
But- how do I say this- as much as I love those characters, they are a bit outdated, and I don't feel as connected with them now as I did then. That's not to say I won't get back to writing them, of course; it's to say I need to connect with them personally before I can write their stories, I feel.
The character I'm hyped about most at the moment is Paula, from my comic for the Winterfest Contest ([link], but can she go on a date/ do valentine-y things?
Hmmmm . . . well, the answer to that is: yes. Well, maybe.
I would appreciate if you write a story with Paula celebrating Valentine's Day with her brother, at a time before her brother dies. I can picture the two going out to eat together, but if you have another scenario in mind (which will probably be better than mine ), then do that instead.
Some facts/suggestions about Paula and her brother:
-Her brother's name is Brandon. He's married, and has no kids.
-Paula is somewhat depressed during this time period, but she has not started wearing the mask. Yet. She tries her best to hide her depression.
-Neither of the two wear glasses.
-Brandon is kind, and usually can hold his temper. Also, he has black hair, green eyes, and has shaved recently at this time (I can see him being constantly clean-shaven)
-There is nothing romantic between them, just the usual sibling-love-hate relationship.
That's all, I believe. Thank you very much, in advance.
And thank you for enduring the long journal. That is much appreciated.
