The Noob 27

This marks the midpoint in The Noob; 27 captions to go.

This was a key scene in the development of this series, when I was first laying out the plot; it was the scene that made me realize that Evan was attracted to Paul.  At first, I thought Evan might be a straight guy wrestling with his body's impulses; but, elsewhere in my Legends of the Dark Tower captions, characters seem to retain their original sexual orientation.  But then it occurred to me that it might be interesting to tell a story about a closeted gay man in a woman's body who's attracted to his best friend.  Et voila, the romantic subplot of this story was born.

You can follow this and my other series on my series page.

  1. Well, can't really blame Evan can we? Still Paul will notice soon. I wonder how Evan will handle it? He could play it off as his new body is attracted to men and to Paul . . . a bit dishonest but a story Paul might accept.
