I’m curious, what stories are there that allow you to customize the ex-LI (aka a LI who breaks up with or otherwise isn’t supposed to be endgame with your MC)? I just find it an interesting choice when authors allow you to do that, seeing as LIs are customizable so you can make them look like your idea of hot, but customizing an ex-LI isn’t exactly the same thing because you aren’t meant to romance them. Should ex-LIs be customizable in general, or does it fall under the problem of making too many characters customizable? Thoughts?
(For what it’s worth, I’ve only seen a few stories that use this. Men and Mascara lets you customize the ex-boyfriend, and Dream Escape lets you customize…well, I can’t say because that’d be a spoiler, but it’s a character who’s definitely not a love interest.)
