White has OCD?
Ahh I see.
I usually don’t confirm or deny a theory by any reader, but in this case I’ll say that if White seems like he has OCD tendencies then it’s seeped through the story unconsciously from the knowledge I gained reading about and from witnessing it up-close in close people around me.
From all that I wrote about White’s childhood, I don’t think it’s unlikely for him to have a type of OCD, now that I think about it.
I’ve been writing notes for a separate story focusing on an OCD father. I’d start it any day if I’m able to arrange a good plotline for it.
