And yet another not-so-great ref by me
So it's Kevin, the main character in that story that I've been working on lately. I changed his design a bit since last time, and tweaked his story too.
Alors SO FAR;
Kevin is a 24 year old living in a crapy edge-of-chinatown apartment. He suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, a disease that I am too tired to explain right now. He lives off of disability welfare and the money his dead relatives have left him. Every morning he goes to the same coffee shop to get the same drink (it is also the coffee shop where Jin [link]
works at apart from his failing music career) and then goes either for a walk to the park or to the doctor's on tuesdays and thursdays then home. His hobbies include riding buses for fun, reading the news, browsing the Internet for pictures of kittens, napping, and reading really old books. He is pretty intelligent, and due to the stability of his condition he lives a relatively normal and unexciting life. Since he was diagnosed as a kid, he's used to a lot of the procedral parts of his lifestyle. His disease right now is kept under control by eight pills every morning of three different types of medication and one before bed. Kevin is very neurotic and gets really bad anxiety easily. He also has too many fears to name and is the human embodiment of the word 'awkward' by definition. XD
His probably only friend is Jin, and kind of this other chick named Sarah but since Sarah is close friends with Cameron, Jin's roommate, he doesn't concern himself as much with them, because Cameron scares him.
//And again just to clarify I'm trying my best not to over-hollywood-fie schizophrenia; it's a pretty serious disease and by no mean am I trying to romanticize it. Kevin is /lucky/ to have a controllable diagnoses, unlike some who suffer from the same disease. It all comes into play with the concept and theme of the story, and that's why it's there; to serve a symbolic purpose, perhaps sometimes informative or interesting, but definitely not be taken as a joke and/or otherwise. Laugh at the character and their endeavours all you want, but out of respect please don't think schizophrenia as some "entertaining/cool thing with hallucinations and shit" deal.
I won't get too much into plot and past yet.
Oh and by the way he's not wearing a hoodie over a longsleeve shirt he's wearing one of those weird sweaters with detachable sleeves for even more awkwardness xD
That's pretty much it I guess for captain introvert...
