My colleagues and I discovered something fascinating today.


(Some Background:
In Australia, we have no snow at Christmas. It's HOT. And yet we still have snowy Christmas cards, sing Jingle Bells, and dress up as Santa Claus in big warm suits.
It's that kind of cognitive dissonance going on here.)


Our Discovery:
Our office is half born-and-bred Aussies, and half overseas imports. And this morning, we discovered the following:

- People from overseas, when they lose teeth (as kids) all agreed that you put the tooth under your pillow, and wake up the next morning to discover money under there instead.

- People from Australia agreed that this under-the-pillow thing is exactly what happens - in storybooks. In real life, though, we all agreed that you put the tooth in a glass of water in the kitchen, and wake up the next morning to find money there instead.

So – Andrew being gay.

I get a little sick of the constant assumption throughout fandom that he is (Mainly because I’ve never seen him as gay, and everyone has to agree with me. About everything.), but I can deal with that.

The problem is, I don’t actually like gay!Andrew. The guy sucks.

Normally I wouldn’t say making a character gay/straight/whatever would have too much impact on their personality. Ship away! I’ll still like the character! But with Andrew it’s not quite that simple.
