Do you have any major changes planned for Elliot as he gets older (not to ask for spoilers lol,) or do you prefer to let the developments happen as you go?

A lot of this first year has been very much throwing plot spaghetti at the walls with others to see what sticks, but I would definitely expect more with Elliot and Lily's relationship down the line as they get older. I've been really enjoying seeing how he clicks with his peers so far and then potentially toying with how that could grow as they get older. El definitely wasn't created with any specific arc in mind so it's been pretty organic to see what relationships and dynamics click or have potential

I'm always curious about how people work towards developing their characters, so that's fun to read. ^_^

I'm always super curious about how people organize all their characters, especially people who have a lot

Elliot takes after me in many ways and hating jaffas is one of them.

Jaffa's, are they jaffa cakes? or some other kind of biscuit/cake?

And to follow that, has Elliot taken to you other places that surprised you or that you didn't expect?

I think they're like jaffa cakes in the flavour sense. Chocolate ball with orange flavoured candy on the outside. (Rowan might have some jaffa related trivia to share, I hear they do interesting things with them in his neck of the woods)
Fun kiwi fact, "jafa" is also something you might hear other kiwis, especially those from the country, call folks from Auckland. Stands for "Just Another F-ing Aucklander" <_<

Do you find that helps when you're roleplaying, sharing traits with your character?

My city has the steepest street in the world, and we used to do an annual charity event where people would race jaffas down the street, as part of our local chocolate festival. Unfortunately, the Cadbury factory was moved recently so we've actually stopped doing any of the chocolate festival stuff, which is pretty sad.
(We do still call Aucklanders jafas though :r )

(Also, jaffas taste gross jaffa haters club for life)

I definitely feel like it can make aspects of a character feel more genuine. And it certainly makes things flow a little better if you're writing from first hand experience. If I'm going to share something with a character though I usually enjoy giving characters little traits like that over larger ones

I got so distracted by jaffas I missed this part of the question, oops.
Plotwise, he's not surprised me too much yet since I never had many strong ideas in mind for how things would progress. I will say his personality is a little different that I had originally intended, and I much prefer it. Originally he was more on the shy side, but he's definitely more social than I realized, if still kinda reserved about it.
There's also a fun confidence and need to take care of other people hiding under all that insecurity that I can't wait to see where it goes. Super grateful to getting to RP with so many different folks and their characters to see what traits are hiding under the surface :wub:

Any idea yet what direction you'd like him to head in adulthood?

Not so much yet! I'm quite enjoying seeing what subjects and things he takes to, as well as getting to know what potential options there are OOC as well. I think seeing how his personality developes as he gets closer to 5th year will help get the ideas rolling for that. He's pretty insecure and nervous right now, but depending on how things go, he could become more reserved or potentially more outgoing and confident and that'll really impact that sort of adult he'll be

Days ago (sorry, I know I'm late) you mentioned struggling to find Elliot's playby. It's one of the things I most enjoy doing, but it's a struggle for me too, development-wise. What led you to decide this one? Were there runner-ups? :p

Playby hunting has now become a serious pasttime for me and it's a little dangerous because it almost always leads to new characters oops. I'll be honest, I can't remember if there were any runner-ups, I'd never looked for a playby for a character before so I didn't really know where to start. I feel like I discarded a few actors I liked but I had a really certain look and feel I wanted for the character. I found his current one while I was doing a Netflix rewatch of Anne with an E with my roommates since I'd binged the show a few weeks before and needed to share it. The character he plays in that is pretty different from Elliot, but the look was exactly what I wanted and I'm so happy :wub:

(I've said it before though, unfortunately, while I think Elliot's playby suits him so well, the actor, Lucas Jade Zumann, has The Worst fashion sense I've ever seen.)
