Main Notes

Kind of weird to be making this as the second post, but ANYWAY, here we go. I've gotten a couple of reviews asking about specific things/my thought process, so I figured I'd put general stuff here. I'll update this as I get more questions.

To start, I never intended to post Kosei when I first started writing for it. I wanted to do something that would get me out of my writer's block. It exploded and I decided to post them. I'm happy that I did, and I'm overjoyed to see that people are enjoying this series.

The best part about this series is that it's a lot of worldbuilding. It's pretty much the easiest way for me to get invested in a story that I'm writing. I love exploring the parts of a universe that are touched on, but not fully mapped out. I try to have each Rea-tan show a different angle of the story/universe.

That being said, there are hard parts. I loathe naming the side characters. I know that I have to, so everything makes sense and so I'm not just typing 'your friend' 100 times, but it's HARD. I want fitting names, but not something that sounds similar to another character. I recently encountered this with Rikido Sato and Satolita and I'm still kicking myself over it. Making Rea-tans with different personalities is also very hard. I strive to make them easy to tell apart, but sometimes I worry that too many of them fit into a certain trope.

Creating a Quirk is actually quite easy (I'm VERY lucky), but it's the nuances that suck (not so lucky). I've spent days mulling over certain Quirks because I wanted proper drawbacks. I've also had to completely rewrite chapters because I've come up with something I like more.

The worst is continuity. U.A. instead of UA, Hero instead of hero. It drives me insane. Every time. Every single time.

Overall, I love all of my Rea-tans. Some overall plots/situations are weaker than others, but that kind of variety is important.

Please note that, while I do take requests for characters/scenarios, Rea-tan's Quirk will stay the same.
