It’s a story of a man trapped at absolute rock bottom, and his climb to find the light. He may not like what he finds, but he has to be brave enough to risk it. It is a story of courage, however frail, that it’s worth taking a stand. It’s a story that I wanted those suffering they way I had to know I see you. I understand you. And there is a way out. There is hope. You just have to grab onto it with both hands and never ever let go. But this series has touched a number of people. I’ve had the honor of readers coming up to me at GRL and express their own experiences and how Sevon’s story helped them confront their monsters.
This series has also touched one particular person in my life, my best friend/adopted baby sister/secret assassin, Mae Wynn Talley. Once she got past all the starstruck flailing and realized I am the biggest dork (it took all of five minutes really) somehow one of us somewhere decided she wanted to cosplay for me. And I decided HELLZ YES.
Let me tell you, Mae cosplaying Sevon is amazing for both of us. It’s insane to see this girl completely transformed into an effeminate man. And for her to be empowered that she can be whoever she wants to be.
Short version is: I have a cosplayer. And that’s fucking rad.
