Dove’s Dedication

Dedication

I changed it last minute.

It was:

To Cyro’s Liam and the letter ㅈ.

and I changed it to:

To a master of comics, Jay.


Cyro started writing a story where Liam existed as a main character. I was so proud. They were working on the story back when I did the second draft. But… It was never finished. Every time I ask Cyro to work on Liam or create a new Liam it’s been… Trouble.

The second part of the dedication is to ㅈor J. They’re similar and not the same. But I’ve Tossed out J. It’s important for my mental health. If anyone asks, my new favorite letter is R. I like R. There’s reasons J has been my favorite for this entire time, but I’m over it. I still hate C.

So the dedication didn’t work for me anymore. I really needed something else. I was tempted to just delete it. Have no dedication. Or just dedicate it to Cyro and Mom. Basic options. Who doesn’t mark parent and child as dedication?

But… It felt wrong to do that. Dove needed a special consideration.

I needed to mark it special.

Dove is older than my friendship with the master of comic I now know. Jay offered insights into superheros I didn’t think about. We’ve had a lot of writing discussion I can’t find in typical fiction circles. Different mediums create different views (hence why I would love to chat with GD).

My final rounds of edits happened after Jay entered my world view. It gave me newfound pride and ability to finish this and hit publish.
