Comment on And Here You Are Living

  1. Thank you so much for your detailed review! I'm so glad that you have enjoyed the socius serious! And I'm thrilled that you are enjoying Dr. Waqud and think that she is a well-rounded character. I do want to make this story more inclusive, and I think it's silly that when we think of diversity we leave off religion. I've tried hard to make this story to have a wide variety of ethnicities in my original characters AND religious and spiritual views in the various characters everything from who cares to atheist to followers of organized religion. As a person of faith myself, it annoys me that people so often forget that spirituality and faith shape us so much, and I want to write the different views well.

    Thank you so much for your help so far! I don't have a tumblr yet, but I'm sure I'll get one. I will change Dr. Waqud's phrases moving forward. I will probably hit you up with questions. Much later on, I plan to have Alfred and Dr. Waqud have a conversation about faith. I'm not sure how long it will be, but the point of it will be that you can disagree on things like faith and still treat each other with respect and kindness. You'll save me tons of research time.

    1. I actually noticed that you had an asian side character in your previous fic and i thought that was super cool. its nice to be able to see the diversity as opposed to having to simply put in your own headcanons cause its like an automatic relatable character! I also love the idea of Alfred and the doctor having a talk.

      Hit me up with questions anytime! I'd be happy to help!

      1. I'm so glad you noticed that! Yes, the diversity in all of my side and minor characters is very intentional! Diversity matters. Representation matters. And it frankly, makes for better storytelling.

        I will definitely be hitting you up soon! Thanks again!
