“Where has it gotten me, fighting every step of the way?”
Okay. SO LET ME TELL YOU MY FEELINGS ABOUT ROSE..
I FUCKING LOVE HER.
She has turned around from being a character that was manic and a bit crazy, and then you actually get to see how damaged she is.
I adore the background we gave to the Divine family and the twins. It shows how people adapt differently to nature/nuture and… yeah.
Rose is one of the most, if not THE MOST, interesting character in Reboot for me. She craves the attention and approval of her peers more than anything and has been desiring that all her life. She has wanted the love and affection from her mother because she could never receive it from their father after he died.
She would do anything and everything to make Bella happy, to at the expense of her own sanity and probably her own life. Giving herself over to Mukademon’s influence without even realising it and becoming this entity of anger.
Honestly, writing the setting where she is basically a living, walking zombie was really interesting for me. And difficult at the same time. I had to use my own experiences of feeling that way when I’ve had my worst depressive episodes. Where I have literally laid in bed for a few days at a time and not got up except to use the bathroom. Where I’ve not wanted to sleep, not wanted to move, not wanted to do anything.
Hatimon here turns into the parent that Rose should have had all along. Trying to help and talk to her as best she can. But ultimately she has to go to Hunter, who still shows how much his sister means to him.
I love, love, LOVE the twins relatinship and how that has changed through the series too. How you SEE Rose and Hunter’s relationship soften towards one another as they realise they have only one another to rely on. One another and these new friends they are making and slowly gaining the trust of.
I had no idea when we created these twins they would eventually be so pivitol to the story and so important to me. I love these guys, and this whole fictional family. I think if they were real, they would be fascinating
