Hello friends! I am once again answering questions directed to me that I didn't on the cast proper (this time because I got hit with the big sleep five minutes in). There are a lot less this time around, so this should be quick and painless.
QDT asks: "What explains the difference in motivation you're finding with Olive as opposed to Pasternak and other gimmicks?"
The very easy answer would be that it's a tag team thing. I pop big for doing dumb tag stuff because being tied to someone else's success makes it much harder for me to stop caring, lol. Like, if I'm running Pasta or some rando singles character and I start to lose interest, I can fuck off and it won't hurt anyone else, ya feel?
But that's not it. Olive's a character that's been planned and plotted and tweaked for a long time. Leigh and I came up with Cassidy and Olive all the way back in August of last year (I finally checked). While we didn't plan everything out to the finest minute detail (neither of us are the type to do that), getting to actually illustrate the ideas we've developed for such a long time is a pretty compelling reason to keep the characters going if nothing else.
Also, Olive's just a fun character.
He also asks: "I would ask about the RP review podcast but I don't want to put pressure on you (DO IT! DO IT NOW) " which isn't a question so much as a statement and a parenthetical demand but ok.
I'll be blunt. I'm running up at crunch time for this term so at the earliest, 2-3 weeks from now. I'll probably bump the questions thread once we get closer to when I'll even have time.
And lastly for the questions directed my way, Corey Bull asks: "Am I saying enough mean words? I’m trying to follow then advice you gave me and be more focused on one or two things in shoot. I want to know if I’m improving, which means you need to read lol Oh the horror!"
Given that this is a feedback request and I would actually need to read something, I'll hit you up privately sometime to discuss this.
