So I'll answer everything right away but first- I gotta say- I checked back here while in a public place and you people made me want to laugh really hard with all these theories and reactions and I honestly didn't expect this to be the thing that surprises everyone. Which only made it even more funny to me.
But it meant I had to hold my laughter in because I was in public.
That... didn't really work out as planned.
Between the bold and the three exclamation points all I heard in my head was this.
My evil plans have come to fruition!
You're correct, I did say, specifically, that the MC was not responsible for the divorce.
As for who initiated it/whether or not the Ex regrets it... Well, I can't quite say. First of all because- spoilers- and second of all because it's really gonna depend on how your marriage went.
I mean, it is fully possible that the two of you could have hated each other during the entirety of the marriage... And were more forced into it via circumstance. So... yeah.
I guess the one thing I can say and still be suitable vague and frustrating about would be this- Lucy and Raf each have very, very different ways of dealing with the aftereffects of the divorce. Which, I guess, kinda goes without saying b-u-t you'll see what I mean when you learn... more.
Though I do love hearing people's theories... so who knows? Maybe I'll drop some more hints before the good ole reveal.
I mean, Eileen on the mind is always a good thing.
Well, in one hand, her job is perfect for her personality, in another- she becomes an entirely different person while working and, you're right, it's definitely not peaceful. (I would know, I've spent a lot of time recently in the same environment as her workplace doing my own li'l work and hoo boy the people there just never, ever sit down.)
So I will say this- it's not any of those.
There's another reason they might not do that as well...
B-u-t can't quite say why, now can I?
Why, thank you! I do it because it's fun. I'm very sorry about conflicting your heart.
Yay! I'm glad it does! I wanted it to be fun for everyone who read it as well, kinda part-detective/mystery novel, part action/superhero story, and part romance if you want/character focused piece.
Also, yay, theories! I love theories, so I'd love to hear yours if you ever want to share!
I'm shocked! Here I obviously would've thought that'd be your least favorite part of the progress report.
Ah, geez, you flatter me.
But, yeah! I'm glad you like him. I'll be sure to do my best with his story!
It's gonna be interesting, especially for MCs like yours, to see what they think about some other bits and pieces of their past that'll be introduced soon. Your attitude towards metahumans/those with powers is gonna greatly affect the story more as we get deeper into the story of the MC's past.
Shh, shh, it's all alright.
I was gonna say something more but it verged into more vague spoiler territory and I've done enough of that for today. So, I'm sorry, but take this cookie as an apology gift?
Or maybe if cake's more your thing?
What are you talking about, that's the perfect time for a feels train!
