AHHH, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WRITING THIS. I'm sorry it took a bit to get to--life has been crazy, but I also kind of feel the need to open up a wordpad doc and copy in every amazing quote for when it comes time to give ya feedback ... and then suddenly I have like, 95% of the damn story in there. It's daunting how much talent you've got.
Needless to say, I love this. Your Adam is so fucking interesting and true to character. So many times, it's just like, YES!!!
Words were his tools and his best talent. Usually.
This is for sure, and this whole story relies on and proves this:
She sparked up. Oh. So that was her power. Let there be light. Instantly he saw her potential.
So many things about this are so right on. The lack of real surprise, the slight allusion, seeing Elle's talent as a new tool in his arsenal:
Energy was energy was energy, and she didn’t know what a ‘friend’ meant. It was just a word to her. In that way, she was years before her time.
She was invulnerable emotionally as he was invulnerable physically.
WOW. What a way to look at it. What a way to see how these two characters fit together.
“I’m going to kill her,” Adam said simply. “I’m sick of her.”
I kinda consider that whole scene canon, especially Adam saying this. I love how it's so cold on one end, but kind of rather passionate on another. Does that make sense?
And don't even get me started on his interactions with Elle! I love her hiding under his bed, him getting her to walk, getting her to speak. I really loved you originating her "learn to like it" line with Adam, and him teaching her about flirting:
“It’s how you defend yourself. You’d better learn. Scripts make them feel at ease, and they won’t be inclined to hurt you. It’s how you pass around society. How you get what you want.”
So cynical. I love it, lol.
