Zoe: ... ... You say he can pass, right? Emily: Yeah. People might get weird vibes but they don't think much of it, it seems. We'll come up with a backstory, in case anyone asks. Zoe: ... Did you say his name is Darryl? Emily: Yeah. First name I thought of just now. Zoe: Have you got a last name for him? Emily: Oh... that might come up, mightn't it? Zoe: Yeah probably! I dunno! Emily: ... How weird is it if it's the same as mine, d'you reckon? Should I say we're some sort of cousins? Or it's coincidence? It's fairly common... Or should we change it? Zoe: ... Why does he have your last name? Emily: He needed one for his email account, so I gave him mine. Zoe: ... Emily: Well, he's family! Also we're not very creative, apparently. But it's obviously not, like, official. Zoe: ... Maybe it will be good, to see him in a nicer situation.
---- Alt text: ok so we haven't got the backstory YET, but i swear, it'll be really well thought out and watertight. i can see we should have settled the name first though
