"Huh. That's actually a pretty good question. Mainly, I'd say wonder. Either I'm daydreaming or I'm finding something new that I didn't know before or I'm seeing things through a whole new lens. I'm always in a state of wonder. Like... 'I wonder if they like me?' or 'I wonder how quantum physics works?' or 'I wonder how old the oldest mammal is?' or 'I wonder what the cute ass girl looks like in her panties?' I wonder things."
"I'd love to say lust, but..." she laughs, "I'd say happiness coupled with irritation. I can be a bit of a handful, but I'm pretty lovable, I think."
"What do I need? A roof over my head, good jambalaya, a hot beignet. People to be a bit more open about things they don't understand. For Dodger to stop being a godsdamned flirt. To make a shit ton of money. You know, a lot of things."
"Probably to either join or start an outreach program for LGBTQ+ youth that deals with educating people about the community, helping the homeless kids get off the streets and find either proper homes or send them to college. Something along those lines. Oh, and to help my biomom's bakery become a huge fucking success."
"Well, I'm getting my Bachelor's degree in Gender and Sexuality Studies right now. Then I'm planning on getting a Master's in Public Health or something along those lines. That'll get me ready for the outreach program. As for the bakery, I'm working there now. Probably still going to work there when I can. It's therapeutic and pretty decent money."
"Born and bred here in New Orleans, darlin'! Grew up in the French Quarter with my dads before moving to Freret with my older sibling, Mel. But yeah, I've basically been here for as long as I can remember."
"NEVER. I'm Peter Pan, bitches! NEVER GROWING UP. NOPE."
"Okay, so my family is a little weird. My half sibling Mel was born to my dad Lex and his dad who is also my stepdad River about seven years before I came around. They were only friends with benefits back then, so they didn't really know what to do. My dad was with my other dad Calix at the time, so it was complicated. Six years after Mel was born, Lex and Calix found my biomom Chelsea, who they asked to be their surrogate. So Chelsea was impregnated with my biodad Lex's sperm and poof! Nine months later, I came along! However, Calix ended up dying when I was around three, so I barely remember him. And then dad Lex married papa River when I was around six or so, and they've been together ever since. I've known my biomom since I was born. She always kind of stayed in the picture because my dads like her and they don't mind us bonding. I get my love of baking from her and I started working every so often in her bakery when I was thirteen. So let's run that down. I've got my dad Alex, my papa River, my half-sibling Melody, my biomom Chelsea... Who am I forgetting? Oh, my grandpa through papa's side is Kosi Haggard, the werewolf representative on the Council. He's... well, interesting. We don't talk about him too much."
