Anything_but_allo Posted January 26, 2019 Share Posted January 26, 2019 Hey y’all (yes I just said y’all I’m sorry XD) I’m back! So this time, I just thought I should get some insight from other aros. So first things first, I’m making a short film for film class, and guess what, I’m making the main character an aromantic female! So the premise of the story is that she used to be with these two guys, todd and luka, who she is now broken up with. Luka is pretty cool about it, he becomes Skylar’s friend (that is her name) and he talks about her about the issues she has. However, I’m making Todd the antagonist, after she breaks up with him, explaining that she jsut doesn’t “feel” that for him and that she doesn’t really understand those romantic acts, he gets quite angry and tries to change her. I’m trying to make Todd a metaphor for amanatormativity, but i jsut kinda wanted some help as to how I can do this respectfully without completely offending allo people? Because that ain’t my goal, it’s just to use him as a symbol of how stupid it can be. Also, how can I make Skylar a believable and respectable aromantic character? I’m aromantic myself so I do know how to make her in many aspects, but each aro is different, so if you have any suggestions as to how to introduce her as a kind and caring character to allos, that would be awesome! Lastly, what are some ways to really spread the word on awareness week? I really want to get the word out, since it’s around Valentine’s Day. Thank you all so much! I’ve been getting a lot of support and I just want to say thank you all so much big virtual hugs and cookies! ? ? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
