An Interview With Scott

September 2, 2014

Okay, in desperation I’ve decided to talk to Scott. Considering how this day has gone, I’m not sure how long this will last.

AS: Hi Scott.

Scott: Hello. What did you want to talk to me about?

AS: I thought I’d do an interview, as a way of promoting the new story.

Scott: Oh. Why talk to me, though? Shouldn’t you talk to Roan, or Holden?

AS: Don’t you think I’ve tried? Roan’s grumpy and Holden’s just being difficult for no reason.

Scott: You realize you just described their dominant personality traits?

AS: … Damn it.

Scott: I mean, you should have known going in that they’d be trouble. That’s what they do. They’re trouble personified.

AS: And you aren’t? You’re a hockey player.

Scott: Which doesn’t make me trouble. It makes me suspect, and quite possibly brain damaged and/or drunk, depending on the time of day and what I’m doing.

AS: It’s good to know you have a sense of humor.

Scott: I have to. I have a very weird life.

AS: And you’re dating Holden.

Scott: It depends on what you consider dating. Holden would probably deny that.

AS: And you?

Scott: We’re dating. But we’re dating weird. It’s an open, half-assed relationship, because Den doesn’t know what he wants, and I’ve … got issues.

AS: The whole in the closet thing?

Scott: I hate the term “in the closet”. I prefer to think I’m “in the locker”.

AS: Athletes are coming out more and more these days. It doesn’t mean you can’t have a career.

Scott: Yes, but they’re gay. I’m bi. Even people accepting of gays can be really weird about us bis. Especially us guys.

AS: Nobody said it was easy.

Scott: Now I know why everybody’s been walking out of your interviews.

AS: Did I sound callous?

Scott: A bit. *Scott’s phone rings* Shit, it’s my agent. Gotta go.

Well, at least he actually answered a question or two.

Now I’m going to open this up. Ask me any question you want. Comments on the series? Complaints? A good recipe for a non-dairy smoothie? Ask away!

    One of the many MANY things I love about this series is how intelligent Roan is. Books, music, people, sleuthing, science…when he talks, or just thinks, it is as if he has tapped into another 20-30% of the brain & made it active & real. So what if he takes Percocet with alcohol? if i were using more than 10% of my brain & had to shift/partially shift, I’d set up a central line in my right jugular vein & pump away! Roan is the reason why I now carry around a dictionary & Shazam all his music choices. *Shrugs* I guess I’m a Roan fangirl, guilty as charged.

    Roan is gifted – and cursed? – with a very restless mind. I think he actually tried to figure out the virus himself at some point, and gave up, but would never admit it. (Because he still hates admitting failure.)

    When you said ‘figure out the virus himself’ i suddenly got this mental image of meditation/communing with the virus…but that’d be more Dylan’s thing, yeah?

  4. andreaspeed says:

    It would, but I don’t imagine he’d do that. Dylan knows when he’s beaten.
