Nathan from IofM
As a little boy, Nathan would do this a lot to keep himself amused when he's bored, cheer himself up when he's upset, and use it as a night light when he's afraid of the dark.
I have an extreme softspot for Nathan and it's kinda bothering me, the situation I've placed him. Mostly that he doesn't have anyone he will REALLY confide in. Didn't really realize that until now, and now I'm a little frustrated. Not only does it hurt because I'm a doting "parent" who wishes Nathan to make tons of really close friends at college, but it also throws my initial story-arc timeline way outta whack if I want to do any good character development on him. Which I really, really do.
Ah, hindsight. Ah, characters developing behind your back and writing their own ^$@%ing stories. *sniff* They grow up so fast.
Anyway, probably gonna use this for the new header ... want something simpler than the current mess.
