What do you guys think of characters with nicknames (obvious nicknames) and only ever referring to them by said nickname? My MC only has a nickname. Can this work? Or will it get old after a while? I've thought about slipping in a reference to reveal my MC's real name, but it doesn't ever seem to quite fit and I'm not sure it's needed. Here's the thing. There's really only one other character who calls my MC by this nickname. I am writing in close third from the POV of the main character with the nickname. I think I like it so far. The nickname is serving like a name. It's just that no one would ever give their child a name like this. I would love to hear some of your experiences using nicknames.
