I've only had a bit of difficulty once entering the UK (boarder person thought I should be in the EU line????) but I have friends with tales of them trying to enter Kenya. It's my canon and I am rolling with it. I love this plot device! The pay-off always cracks me up. Teenagers being only as teenagers can be ;p I think all teenagers (presidents' teenagers or no, but especially presidents' teenagers) need a safe space away from their parents where they can go and hang for several hours (or days, or weeks) where they can just get away from their parents but their parents know they are safe, and I love the idea of Uncle Marc and Uncle Leo being that place for Emilia. Plus, I like to think, since Elvie was president, Leo and Marc really took care of Emilia during the physical aspects of transitioning. Yeah, of course Emilia is only 16 here so not thinking totally right, but of course Elvie wouldn't see it that way. I can totally see Elvie practicing on Rose for this exact situation! I wanted Elvie to both listen to Emilia's troubles, but also be there to distract her with something fun and give her a reason to get all fancy. I think both can be important in making someone feel better. Yeah, I totally agree! This is SOOOOO my mom. She'll want to watch something with us but end up falling asleep halfway and say no when we tell her to just go to bed! Thanks. Yeah, I love these guys as dads!
