A Novel Idea: Evee & Hal (Alternately Titled, Ed Sheeran Has Slain My Feels)
When I searched for "Photograph" on Spotify, Photograph by Ed Sheeran came up as a search result as well. Being the Ed Sheeran fan I am, I queued that up to play right after my two (loud) Def Leppard songs. When I listened to it, I shamelessly had Hal and Evee in mind, because I had planned to do them for A Novel Idea. (They're going to be a romantic thing, I think.) And that song stopped me cold.
With Ed Sheeran's crooning voice and soft guitar strings, he could make you feel anything. And that he did. Though I've become more grumpy in my old age, beneath all of the outward sarcasm there is still a hopeless romantic who makes Evee and Hal as Sims and gives them children named Juniper and Lionel. And this hopeless romantic heard this Ed Sheeran song and positively melted.
Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes
Why I am such a huge fan of Hal and Evee together? ... I really don't know. It just sort of happened. They're so drastically different that I feel like the sparks naturally fly. They start out as clashing with each other, only to complement each other perfectly in the very end. They do need each other, in different ways. They calm each other's fears, and having each other makes their personal issues just a little bit easier to handle. (Those are my favorite kinds of ships, to be honest.) As to how they get together due to being so different? I HAVE NO CLUE. We shall see how it all unfolds.
His computer, his iPod, and his flash drives.
2. What is one talent they would like to have?

He'd probably want to make himself less cynical, but he's torn between not liking his hard edges and loving them because they keep people out.
4. What living person do they most admire?
Stephen Hawking. (Despite the fact that this is probably set in the distant-future. Whoops. I have no idea what's going on, really.)
