Everyone loves balloons!
Okay, that's a lie, and I know that from experience. But as far as my characters are concerned, most of them love balloons. I've noticed that a lot of the people who like my characters also tend to be interested in this aspect of my characters as well, and so I thought it'd be a good idea to put together a page explaining what characters like balloons in what ways for what reasons. Or something like that.

As a heads up, I was once phobic about balloons popping. But even with the knowledge of what that's like, and personal experience with irrational reality responses to fiction, I'm not going to be dancing around poppytalk. I don't mean to be a jerk, but if we can't even discuss using the term, we're probably not going to get along very well unless we just ignore the subject entirely. And considering what I just said above about my characters, it's extremely unlikely it'll never come up.
