Quote:Maris is nothing like you. He is not at all cool; in fact, he thinks cool is a temperature reading, and when he says "Oh, I just put on whatever old thing's lying around," he means "on the floor, where I threw it last night - but I turned the underwear inside out first." He may have sometimes thought that he was special, or destined for greater things, but probably dismissed the idea as a fantasy. He's come in for him share of hurt, but gotten off with minor damage. And he's gotten no slack from you.
In general, you've kept yourself a goodly distance from Maris and given him plenty of room - maybe a little too much. Don't distance yourself so far from Maris that you stop caring what happens to him.
ile is suspiciously similar to you as you'd like to be. He isn't really very cool: he blends into crowds, he hangs out on the fringes at parties, and wearing shades after dark makes him run into things. He may have sometimes thought that he was special, or destined for greater things, but probably dismissed the idea as a fantasy. He's had more than his fair share of hard knocks, and probably spends more time than he ought moaning about it. And you've been pretty kind to him, always ready to intercede on his behalf and give him a nice easy victory.
You may have let yourself get a little too close to ile. Maybe he's you as you wish you were, or maybe you're just afraid no one will like him and are trying to give him a free ride. Have some confidence in your writing! ile is a good character. Give him room to be himself before you stifle him.
