That twist actually REALLY drives a wedge into the AU, like, ESPECIALLY Stevonnie’s relationship with her mother. Since I have yet to make clear who the father is, it makes turning around as penciling in a new familial relationship between Stevonnie and RQ extra difficult.
That’s also because I wrote Stevonnie and the doctor’s family relation before that twist happened. I might just make RQ and PD not related to Stevonnie have the doctor either be Connie’s mother/stepmother, and RQ still STEVEN’S mother full stop just to simplify the mess I made myself from making assumptions, lol. Maybe PD is a separate gem, an obnoxious hanger-on in BD and YD’s two person band (running on stage mid set and screeching into the microphone)?
In all fairness, I wrote myself into a corner with this one.
