His eyes widened. "That's a great idea! Nerezzar canonically has a little brother that he lost and thought dead. If we took him from that point in his timeline, maybe our MC could remind him of Aalok!"

"Oh, wow, that's so sad, but also kind of great!" Jeff frowned, feeling kind of bad for the fictional character, but interested in using that detail either way. "So, we could say he was lonely and came across the MC one day. Maybe the person helps Nere-z-a-r," Jeff sounded out, "and he wanted to interact more with the MC or something."

each one tasting of a flavor from my youth,
when berries stuck between yellowed teeth
and the only worry was about missing a tv show.

"Nerezzar's main motivations are greed and entertainment," Mattathias said. "Maybe he stumbled upon this world and came across our MC, then was curious and wanted to see what would happen."

"Sounds good to me!" Jeff nodded to Matt's words. "Dang, dude, though, like you really do have a great imagination for something like this. That's really awesome."

"So, I guess basic details for the MC are like name and stuff, and uh gender. Do you have anything in mind? I think you've proven to be the better source for characters, haha."

He laughed and shook his head. "No, I just, do it a lot. That's all. Practice makes perfect! I think it'd be best if the MC was male because it'd make him more similar to Nezzy's brother. Giving him a name that starts with 'a' would further that similarity, too!"

"Huh, okay, so a dude and a name with 'a' so uhhh," Jeff trailed off, trying to think. "For a sort-of modern character - maybe something like Aaron, uh Andrew, but those are pretty normal, hm. How about Ardeshir?" He paused. Where did that name come from?

"Anyway," he continued, "how does Anton sound?"

Spoiler! :

"Oh, Anton! I like that," Mattathias agreed. "Ardeshir's a cool name, too, though. Where'd you come up with that?"

Spoiler! :
I saw an opportunity XD


"Oh, I know! I've loved Ardeshir ever since finding it in a compilation book done by a lot of people. Some called Feather Stone came up with that name!" Jeff grinned widely. He loved talking about The Outlands - he hoped more people would end up reading it.

"I'm glad you like Anton though. I guess that's a lot of the basics down, as we'll probably get more into his actual character once we start writing as him."

"Huh, that's cool," Matt said. "And yeah, I agree! Which then begs the question, how do we want to go about writing this? Do we want to switch back and forth on paragraphs? Sentences? Try to work a way of collaborating the writing of the whole thing? Something else...?"

Jeff thought for a second. Sentence by sentence sounded like it would be fun but could also get super crazy super quickly. Maybe a more concise pattern would be better.

"I think paragraphs or a small bunch of dialogue would be the way to go for this." He paused. "I guess we could try out every other sentence to see, but that seems like it could get really hectic and messy."
