Have I said "Hooray for con bounce!" lately?
On a semi-related note, it's an interesting side-effect of the "different sizes for different species" policy of Suburban Jungle that Brody's relative shortness compared to Dover makes me think of him as a "kid," even though he's not actually that much younger than the average cast member (he's roughly Comfort's age).
Of course, his wide-eyed, eager energy makes him seem young and innocent, which adds to that "kid" feeling. And compared to Leonard, who is looking with serious intent at 40 in the not-too-distant future, Brody is a kid, so I suppose it makes sense.
I actually like Brody quite a bit. I introduced him partially on a whim, but with a particular role in mind for him to play in the story ... it'll be interesting to see if he actually steps into that role, or balks like so many of my characters are prone to doing. But even if he does, he's still good to have around: his high-strung and enthusiastic nature is ready-made for bouncy fun. :)
Ah well, I'm still dragging from the con and need to catch up on sleep, so goodnight, world! Hope you have an awesome tomorrow.
