The Evolution of One Paige McCullers
“Supporting characters, as a general rule, only exist as catalysts for main characters. They set up the jokes so main characters can deliver the punchlines. They get themselves into trouble so main characters can come to the rescue. They ask questions so main characters can provide answers that propel along the story. Not always, but mostly, they are stick figures that could not exist out in the world on their own. But Paige, to me, feels real, feels solid, feels not like a type of character, but like an actual person, with deep wishes and desperate urges and a consuming fear of failing.” [HH]
“God. GOD. Just look at this girl right here. She wore khaki shorts and a french braid and wrote a letter asking Emily if it really could be true that they were the same. She rode her bike to this house in the middle of the night, rain pelting her face and thunder clapping all around her head, to ask Emily to forgive her for not being brave. She sneaked into Emily’s car and stole a kiss and begged her not to tell. She stood in this very room as tears splashed down her cheeks and she said the word “gay” out loud for the very first time. She held Emily’s hand way out in the woods, away from prying eyes, and said she’d never be able to love her out loud. She’s been paralyzed by fear, blinded by self-loathing, stricken mute with insecurity, trying and trying and trying to stay on top of the water. She’s fucked it up, she’s fallen down, she’s very nearly drowned. And now she’s standing here in this bedroom, tall and proud and very nearly bursting with love, asking Emily to start a brand new life with her. She’s growing, she’s going to keep growing, she wants Emily to grow with her.” [HH]
