Originally, I did not have a lot of plans for Kristen. She was always to be Lauren Collins’ slave in True Love, but eventually cast aside so Lauren and Jenny could go off together (more on that soon…). As I mentioned in my earlier post about Lauren, something changed as time went by and I grew to dislike Lauren a lot. Kristen’s self mutilation scene at the end of chapter four and sort of mental breakdown made me grow rather fond of her and want to explore her role in the story a lot more than the main protagonists.
The implications of her breaking through her programming is something I want to explore in the future as well.
The addition of Celia, Arianna’s sister, had been planned for awhile. The decision to pair Kristen up with her was something that happened while I was writing. There is a lot more to come from those two.
