I’m curious about what groups of people readers would like to see more, or who they feel are underrepresented. I’m thinking about entering the Clue contest, and, chances are, I’ll be making an uncustomizable MC. And I want to be able to add someone to the screen that people don’t usually see represented.
I know how important it can be for people to see, maybe, themselves on the screen, whether it be TV, movies, or Episode! I kinda doubted that power of recognition before I saw a trans character in an Episode featured story, but, now I know the feeling is pretty great.
What demographic would you like to see in an Episode story? And who do you feel has been underrepresented?
I would like to see typical or ordinary teenagers trying to follow their dreams. It’s 2019, and it’s hard for a teenager to follow their dreams and goals because of they way they’ve been taught. (I’m speaking from experience). This is realistic and yet, there not many stories about it
I think characters with conditions such as albinism and vitiligo are underrepresented. (I understand that it isn’t currently possible to make a character with vitiligo on episode, but I think it should become possible in the near future.)
