is there a reason that Noiz/Clear have different names in Earnest Things? Like is it only their parents that call them their other names, or is there no real reason?
ah well it’s something i do in my original stories a lot! IT TOTALLY SLIPPED MY MIND THAT I HADN’T EXPLAINED IT O MAN THANK YOU
its more like?? People who don’t really see Clear/Noiz as legitimate people (Noiz’s parents, for example, only see him as their messy son, not an existence that has his own value). The deal is, when reading it, while we see it as Clear/Noiz, they’re saying the biological names IRL. The people who aren’t worth delving into (since Noiz’s parents are toxic, and therefore not beneficial to Noiz at all), aren’t givin “permission” to address Noiz like we read??
does that make sense
basically, if they suck or if they’re assholes, or if they’re meaningless characters: We don’t read it as Clear/Noiz
I DO THAT A LOT IN MY ORIGINAL STORIES SO// IT’S KINDA DUMB SOUNDING, BUT I APPLIED IT TO THIS FIC WITHOUT EVEN THINKING ABOUT IT AHHHH I FEEL SO??
(cries softly on your shoulder) im sorry and lame lol////
