Bastian “You stressed everyone out last night and we’re all super concerned and also four people were just killed are you still up for laser tag?” Nightingale.
my favourite thing about writing these two is that Parker is somehow still convinced that Bastian is one of the Cool Kids despite all glaring evidence to the contrary
o you’re stressed and miserable and traumatised huh laser tag will fix that cmon pewpewpew
Anonymous asked: do you cut a lot of stuff from maggot boy?
A fair amount! anyone who’s read the admittedly terrible awful written version will know there are scenes and snippets of dialogue that get left out. I like to keep my chapters to between 22-30 pages, and pacing is really important to me; a lot of the story i have planned out in my head either has to be severely reduced or cut because it’s too cumbersome or long to present visually or is just kinda bad/pointless. Early chapters didn’t have as much mental editing done so they’re a little more rambly and poorly handled bluh bluh
I want to know what happened last night tho like
the kid just randomly disappeared at strange hours of the night did he not get chewed by his parents
"Mom PLEASE i was harassed by a serial killer and then i shot him multiple times i don’t have time to DEAL with this"
i was actually gonna have a scene with pj and his mom re: this! but this chapter if i include everything i wanna do is gonna blow up huge and the pacing’s gonna be fucked and awful and it’ll take forever so it got cut sob
but basically yeh his folks are Extremely Concerned
