Anonymous asked: After your beautiful picture of them, I have to ask: what are your thoughts on a Briar/Evvy romantic relationship? (I mean, when they're grown up and there hasn't been any teacher/student dynamic for a while.)
Oh gosh, I’m not really sure how I feel about that because we haven’t really gotten to see them interact as equals yet (the reason I can ship Tris/Briar is because they’re at the same level as mages and as friends, and they have a very teasing relationship). There’s only a five year age difference between Briar and Evvy (the same as Neal/Kel), so that of course isn’t an issue, and they’re certainly very fond of each other, so I can see it working out, but I don’t personally ship it because I feel like Briar feels responsible towards her. It’s also a bit harder to fall for someone you’ve known as a kid, which is why I accept that canonically none of the Circle kids will fall for each other, though I can indulge myself in fanon. (And in regards to that, I also want to mention that Numair and Daine met when she was 13 and while that’s very young, Daine was pretty self-sufficient at that point and not so much a child anymore).
