Anonymous asked: I don't think you can ever understand how much I need some Rosie/Gideon. Any chance I could get some of your brilliant headcanon on them? I'd really like to know how they have a relationship amidst all the crazy and how they fight aside each other. I'm also really intrigued by the idea of Gideon's autism, my experience would lead me to think that he might be in need of reassurance and even crave physical contact- although I am truly aware of how it can differ. Lots of love from a very big fan xx
Ahaha, I love that people enjoy my silly OCs so much. It helps me feel a little less guilty about indulging in fandom sins. I’ve touched on some aspects of how Gideon interacts with the idea of a companion—-and his place within the fam—-here, here, and here. Gideon both craves contact and shies away from it, so Rosie’s no-nonsense attitude and complete lack of fear or intimidation is incredibly important to him. Rosie don’t give a shit. Jason didn’t raise her to tolerate anyone’s BS, so Gideon was cautiously fascinated by this weak, noodle-limbed little girl that bossed him around. Jason made it very clear to Gideon that watching over Rosie was his responsibility, and he took that charge seriously. So Gideon pretty much follows Rosie around like a very big, very angry duckling. She takes good care of him.
