Is there a character that you really relate to?
Not really, but there are tons of characters I identify with in little ways. I see a lot of myself in Sydney Sage - particularly her demisexuality and her rational, systematic approach to dealing with problems, although I’m a lot lazier than Sydney and I’m not religious at all (but that’s one of the things I love most about Sydney: that she’s somehow both logical and superstitious. She’s a study in contrasts, like a real human being).
