Andrea’s Multiverse (Part 2) : The Agent and The Faerie

Welcome to Part 2 of “Andrea’s Multiverse”! Last time, I introduced TikTok/YouTube content creator Andrea So to you. This time, I’ll introduce the women in her multiverse, starting with fan faves Agent Red and The Faerie, and let you get to know the creator more.

***********************************************************

Tracing her TikTok history, it’s clear how much Andrea’s shorts have improved visually. But content-wise, she’s always been creative. She is a storyteller, after all, putting her ideas into writing for years. These days, however, she puts them out there through social media. This has proved to be one of the best decisions in her life. 

Andrea’s Multiverse

Andrea is never a mere copycat. She may participate in trends and challenges, but be prepared for some twists or surprises once in a while.  For instance:

@andweaso

#pov she got a phone call and recalls what happened last night | ib@incorrectlyroce

♬ original sound – Kuyalods 🎭 – Kuyalods 🎼

It’s a trend that has got even confident men cross-dressing into five women. It’s a ‘90s song where a kiss-and-tell guy spills about the girl he met the night before. Personally, knowing where the naughty song leads to, I wasn’t thrilled about the trend, but that’s TikTok. There is the limited length allowed, fortunately, so it stays wholesome. In general.

Unlike most creators, Andrea didn’t really need a guy to be in the vid. She didn’t have to pretend to be one either to tell the story. Instead, in her POV, Andrew calls a nerdy girl to talk “about last night” and recount things. Distracted by the book she is reading, she answers without checking who it is. She then wonders about what he means but it soon dawns on her what happened. You can see the instant regret on her face. Andrew mentions meeting five pretty girls at a party or club. One girl caught his attention in particular: Ana. The song gets cut off there, thank goodness.

What makes this entry extra special are the women Andrew is introduced to. Fans are tickled pink to see The Faerie (“pretty girly” in the song), Agent Red (Ana), The Princess (Karen), The Pirate King’s Daughter (Tanya), and The Mafia Boss’s Daughter (Jill). Remember this from last time?

It is a real treat for fans who adore Andrea’s characters to see them all in one video. It is always fun seeing the ladies from the multiverse come together as friends. You don’t know how, when or why it happened, but they just are, and fans love it.

Of course, any group has its most popular member. It is clear who the biggest fan favorite is (and the creator’s, too). Recall: Who is it that Andrew picks again? Ana. In the multiverse, Agent Red. Andrea chose her, not surprisingly. By the way, if you have not realized it yet, the nerdy girl Andrew calls is none other than Red who has a vague recollection of what happened the night before. (I suppose that’s because she doesn’t really drink so she got drunk easily. She probably doesn’t even remember giving a civilian her number. Well, that’s my interpretation of it, at least.)

“Red” is her rank or skill set level, not her dress code. It means that Agent Red is the best in the field, the deadliest. So don’t expect her to wear red on a regular basis. An agent needs to be inconspicuous. How about the skills of other agents, though, like her partner, Agent Black? Black is also an expert, yet even he says that she is the best. We’ll leave it to Andrea to explain one day.

Agent Red was Andrea’s original concept that blew up online, which she did not exactly expect. People welcomed her female agent who is like the heroines in action and espionage movies—strong, independent, smart, and skilled fighting machines. Agent Red became so popular that TikTok soon began showing some other creators make their own agents in their POVs, often including her own clips.

Every great secret agent needs a backstory, though. What is hers?

@andweaso

#pov after being framed for a crime, agent red finally gets revenge on her ex ⚠️flash⚠️

♬ No Tears Left To Cry By Adamusic – Adam Wright

I’m glad Andrea, the creator, got that covered. I would like another backstory to that backstory, however. It makes me wonder what she was exactly before becoming a secret agent. Meanwhile, the character “Andrea” (the default name for every character), who was Agent 203, rose so fast in rank. Her drive and perseverance in training put her on top that she quickly earned the code “Agent Red”.

Red is a woman of serious demeanor. She doesn’t smile much except to be polite, lure in targets, or assure one’s safety, or when she proves a point to misogynists in the training room. Men admire her and are intimidated by her at the same time. She exudes that inexplicable and mysterious aura. She can out-perform any agent of whatever gender both in training or out in the field. She can knock one out with a single blow or shoot with deadly precision. She never misses, Agent Black says.

Agent Red is not inclined to do silly things like dance in a social gathering unless to distract a target during a mission. She does love to dance when she’s had one drink too many (because she doesn’t really drink), or when she thinks she’s alone in a room, or when she secretly entertains a little kid they are babysitting after a successful rescue.

@andweaso

#pov the agent enjoys babysitting the kid they rescued during their mission

♬ SUSCRIBANSE A METALCHEETA – _mr.cheeta_

At home, she changes back to her old self: a nerd who enjoys a quiet and peaceful time reading a book.

Red seems cold and distant to many. She does not have time for a love life, it seems. She already spends much of her time with the person she secretly loves, anyway. Agent Black is THAT GUY, and the feeling is mutual. He may keep teasing and annoying her, but Agent Black knows and loves the real her. He’ll go through hell and high waters to save her!  

Oh, but they’re not in a relationship. They keep things professional despite the ever-constant sexual tension between them. Still, not one of them dares to acknowledge what it really is. They can’t even admit it to themselves!

He cracks a flirty joke sometimes that she either ignores or gets annoyed at. He can’t fight it. He can get so confused when she gives him the sultry look and subtle wink when she dances (probably to get back at him). He gets as distracted as the target! Ironically, it was him who taught her to stare seductively and wink while dancing, having had a somewhat first-hand experience of her effect. (She was drunk and dancing on the floor one time.) 

@andweaso

#pov she has to distract the owner of the club while her partner sneaks in the back

♬ Bartender – yukia🤎

He gets even more distracted when she is so near. What Agent Black doesn’t know, however, is she gets the same way, too, with him. She’s just better at hiding it. She does get flustered unexpectedly at times.

@andweaso

#pov she sees her partner dressed up for the first time at the party

♬ Insane – Summer Walker

There are various times she’s gotten jealous of fellow female agents over him. She will never admit it, of course. Red makes sure she gets his attention back

Obviously, theirs is a slow burn romance, the kind of romance Andrea loves to read, watch, and write about. So far, this below must be the most romantic Red and Black scene yet (at least, the closest I’ve seen Red admit that she likes Black very much):   

Red and Black kilig

[Ed. The Instagram video could be embedded but it takes A LOT of space and is not playable. The dialogues are important but the words may be hard to read due to the size. So I created a “new” vid that we could embed here, play immediately, and read properly. It’s unlisted on my channel and you can only view it here and/or if I actually provide you the link.]

It’s funny that viewers know there is no actual person behind the camera, yet they still ship agents Red and Black so hard. Fans are curious, is there someone actually playing Agent Black? There is.  

Andrea’s friend Edge Tuico beat others to it. Others could use the Agent Black name and character, too. I’ve seen some, even women who aren’t necessarily Red’s love interest (for instance, Kimmy Xie whose acting in various POVs I really like). Being first makes you the OG, however, right? Also, Andrea acknowledges and calls him Agent Black multiple times.  She says this in her streams, too.

Edge has his own Black POVs where he may or may not be an agent, that may or may not include Red, who may or may not be an agent as well. Andrea and Edge have done various Duets before the one below. Personally, I wish for an actual collaboration where both agents are in the same place, on the same frame, at the same time..

@andweaso

Take note that it’s a multiverse where other things can happen. In one series, Agent Red falls for the prince she is protecting. You just saw her save him from the rebels earlier. In the world of POVs, expect and explore other possibilities.

Red looks different in the backstory and earlier videos. Back then, the character hardly wore makeup. I think adding the red lipstick was a very good idea. A hero(ine) needs to have something distinctive about him/her. Since the clothes have nothing to do with the name, the red lipstick was indeed the next best thing. The look at left is what people have now accepted as their Agent Red.

The Faerie Magic

You’d think that it would be the Mafia Boss’s Daughter (MBD), The Pirate King’s Daughter (PKD), or The Princess. But no. It is The Faerie that now rivals Agent Red’s top spot as fan favorite. Her innocent yet bubbly personality might topple Red’s position one day. Why not? She’s so adorable! Everytime she comes out, it’s like you can hear people in the comments say a collective “Aaawww….” It’s like watching cats and dogs videos. I mean, just look here!

So adorbs, right?!!

She’s a character that is so well-put together. The costume is perfect especially with the pointy ears that she didn’t have yet in the old videos. Her wide-eyed innocence is there when she’s curious, interested, surprised, excited, even when she seems to be hiding a secret. The eyes “disappear” the moment she smiles from ear to ear. That smile melts hearts, too. Seldom a post that does not have people commenting on it. 

Obviously, Faerie is a fun character with quite a personality. She is always curious and in awe, naughty and mischievous, playful and a bit stubborn. She is like a child trying to experience the world. She likes food a lot and has been known to taste nice-smelling, inedible things even when you say don’t. And, boy, does she love to dance! Several times, she stole Red’s phone to record herself doing dance trends. Faerie is now happy with her own phone that, I suppose, Red handed down or provided. She still steals Red’s phone once in a while. I am inclined to think it has a better camera.

Given her personality, what makes her qualified to join Red, MBD, PKD, and the Princess in the list of empowered women? For one, The Faerie does make up her own mind. She listens only to trusted friends, though it doesn’t mean she will simply follow their advice. She is not easily fooled when it matters.

@andweaso

She does not conform just to please you. She is an advocate for the environment, too . Lastly, Faerie is not afraid to try out new things.

One does not have to be a bad*ss to be empowered.

When the character was first introduced, she looked more human, wearing either white or black, no visible pointy ears. Faerie behaved like an adult, good and kind, yet prone to make bad decisions once in a while. She did not take kindly to being made a fool and made sure the lesson was learned well. She seemed like a force to deal with.

I’m not sure if the big change in Faerie was a conscious decision on Andrea’s part. Perhaps things naturally went that way as she found the child-like character fun to do and the audience loved it. She’s always admitted being partial to Red and Faerie. And so have her audience in general.

In the multiverse, Faerie’s happy personality has endeared her to friends. It’s a wonder that they are even her friends considering their backgrounds–the Mafia, pirates, royalty. It is quite evident, though, that Agent Red is her BFF. The tough agent certainly has a soft spot for the faery. She treats Faerie not just as a bestfriend but as a beloved little sister to guide and protect. Cases in point:

1.  Red patiently taught Faerie her first human words.

2. When the faerie doesn’t stop crying, only Red can make her and cheer her up. The agent is good with kids despite the outside persona that she shows and, well, Faerie is still like a kid in many ways. And she still wants that ice cream.

3. You never see Red get annoyed or angry at her despite the various mischiefs and misadventures the latter gets into. 

4. Faerie wants to be a secret agent, too, so Red tries to teach her how to shoot and interrogate. Once, she even brought Faerie along on a mission. So far, Faerie has succeeded…at being cute.         

5. Faerie is the biggest RNB shipper! (I call the Red and Black ship RNB, okay?) She teases her bestie constantly about it. Red practically lets her as long as she doesn’t tell anyone

@andweaso

#pov the faerie wanted to take a pic with agent red

[Ed. UPDATE (September 2022): You might wanna see THIS. The Faerie asks Agent Red to hold her drink and asks Agent Black for something else. Ooh, the way Red pulls her aside….Faerie, you li’l devil. That was perfect. Love you! RNB Forever!]      

[Ed. UPDATE (October 2022): Is the RNB ship about to set sail??!!! Red slipped as well, but saved by Chris Evans. She should also stop touching alcohol that she can’t handle. And (November 2022) Agent Black should tell her what he feels instead of telling his buddies! People keep urging Andrea to make a series of the RNB love story, but she refuses. I agree that it’s more exciting her way. Once she makes it a series, it’s gonna have an ending after only a few vids. I feel like that will diminish the “kilig” or thrill factor in the RNB POVs that will follow….I might keep editing this page to give updates on where the ship is heading.]

6. Red is quick to laugh and smile at Faerie’s cuteness and antics. And we know Red, she guards her feelings well.  

7. Faerie is the only one who can easily ask a reluctant Red to dance to trends with her. Red pretends to enjoy it only when she’s looking. Even Agent Black can’t force Red that easily. Well, except for that li’l dance one time at a party — she was so cute! 

8. The Ultimate Proof? Red doesn’t have to know the details that leads to Faerie crying (Faerie’s especially sensitive about her ears, though). If you make Faerie cry, you will pay, dearly…RUUUNNN!!!

I’ve said it before, I’m not into fan fiction, but for them, I’ll make an exception. I have a whole plot planned already!

Andrea’s Multiverse (Part 1) : The Creator’s Points of View

andrea-so-on-TikTok

Andrea So, the creator of her own Multiverse

It’s true.  I have not been writing much. I have not felt inspired enough. Inspiration comes and then goes away in a couple of days. It’s frustrating! So many things going through my mind that I can’t function the way that I used to. I’m so bored that I’ve unintentionally immersed myself more in social media, particularly YouTube. Ironically, that’s how I found Andrea Nicole So, a famous TikTok content creator. 

How I Found Andrea

I found one of her “Shorts”. A Short is a quick video that is sometimes uploaded on YouTube or Instagram by a TikTok creator to add/test the platform. This has been possible for quite sometime now. I was aware of it, only I did not give it mind. I’ve seen too many TikTok videos through Facebook Watch and many of them annoy me for various reasons. The worst are the thirst traps.

Anyway, I ended up enjoying Shorts from several American sitcoms. I also ended up looking at other TikTok videos, which was inevitable. One day, I came across this:    

@andweaso

#pov the drummer heard the guitarist (her crush) and the bassist talking about her during rehearsal

♬ original sound – Krystine

I’ve seen many fake-drumming online yet this one really caught my attention. I was curious if hers is real since I’m a frustated musician whose ultimate dream is to play the drums. Some stories I attempted to write before involved drummer girls because, well, girls playing drums seem so cool, I’m not gonna lie. Drummer girls rock!

I rewatched many times, listened well to the beats, and watched if she’s just flailing her sticks everywhere. She just missed the first cymbals, I should mention. Even so, I may not know how to play the drums but it doesn’t mean I’m blind. The sound may not be hers but the young woman knows what she’s doing.

What really interested me were her reactions. The large, expressive eyes, the cute little smile she tried to hide, and the consequent expressions intrigued me. She’s definitely a sight for sore eyes, but what was going on? I found the answer when I read the caption that started with “#pov”.

Point of View! Everything became clear to me then. POVs, in the TikTok world, are scenarios or skits that the creator puts characters in. They may be his ideas or suggested by followers. Generally, the creators themselves act in them and Andrea is no exception. The brief video of the Drummer Girl gives a glimpse of Andrea’s acting potential. (Of course, you’ll need to read the dialogues inserted onscreen to understand the story.  I actually did not give them mind the first times I watched. This video spawned Parts 2 and 3, by popular demand.)  

Other creators make POVs, too, except it was the first time I saw one that didn’t involve choices or numbers or whatever. Usually, they give POVs then the characters supposedly choose what to do, like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure. The endings depend on their choices. The numbers either represent a character’s long (or short) life, or some individual rankings given by the government, etcetera. Many are weird scenarios…They’re all interesting enough yet I usually end up dissatisfied, if not disappointed, by the conclusions. Not to mention, by some terrible acting and script.

Andrea didn’t disappoint, not with this one, honestly. I liked her work. It made me curious to check out her other videos. Not surprisingly, like many creators, Andrea may have started with dance videos (I haven’t confirmed it, I just know she already deleted some older posts). I traced her posting history and found dance shorts showing her skills. The girl has got moves! Below is a more recent post with minimal movements. I chose to share it as I feel it represents her sweet, charming personality and personal style.   

This is Andrea So

Andrea is often easily mistaken as a Korean. When I first watched her works, I did not assume it but considered that she might be. There was no clue in the videos because the captions and onscreen dialogues are in English. However, I did not discount that she could be Filipino. We, Filipinos, are a mixed of races that it’s very possible, even with a family name like So. 

Online interviews I found indirectly confirmed that the 24-year-old grew up in the Philippines. In her livestsreams, she gets asked time and again about her nationality. She is Filipino by nationality. She is half-Chinese while the Filipino part has some Spanish blood in there somewhere. When Andrea sometimes replies to comments in conversational Tagalog, that surprises fans who wonder about her.

This short, one of my faves because it gives me the feels, should definitely confuse fans. With her acting and looks, she could pass as a K-drama star.

#pov the shy girl wanted to keep her relationship with the badboy a secret from her friends

♬ original sound – favsoundds

Notice that though the Drummer Girl, the real Andrea, and the Shy Girl/Girlfriend look similar (of course!), they also could pass as different people. It must be the mixed genes. In her earlier videos (she started POVs in January 2020), the Spanish in her sometimes manifest, so to speak. At least, in my opinion.

This ability to transform has helped her achieve a good status in the industry she’s chosen. Andrea is a college graduate who traded her otherwise wonderful first job for a career in entertainment where her work is a one-woman job. And she loves it!

She does everything, from conceptualizing to acting to editing, which is fine. A perfectionist knows that if you want something done your way, do it yourself. She is a writer who has always wanted to be an actress. Social media presented to her the opportunity. Andrea has grabbed it, works hard, and now enjoys the various fruits of her labor. Why not? She’s great at what she does, whether it’s light humor, romance, drama, even light action.

Here are just some samples of her POVs. Take note that some skits are done in response to different TikTok trends and challenges. Majority of them are her own ideas. Also, you can tell which ones were made much earlier based on the lighting and background — Don’t mind them. We all start somewhere. (Do click on the words in bold letters as they are links to videos.)

I really love her hair here. And notice the pen-twirling? She does that a lot and people want tutorials

Andrea’s characters also often sing. Usually, like what other POV creators do, she does lipsyncing. This often spawns either requests for her to sing with her own voice, or negative comments that dare her to do it. Here she is singing with her own super-soft and sweet voice, not unlike her speaking voice. People are often surprised by her voice as they imagine it sounding differently, but also find it very soothing and pleasant

Empowered

Andrea plays all of the characters above. She has more that she can summon. However, if you’ve followed her long enough, you know that, none of the others could be more iconic than these women:  

Tam

They are mostly behind Andrea’s continued rise in popularity. In fact, as of the moment, her verified TikTok account has 8.9 million followers, and counting. She is now also verified by YouTube, has received her gold play button, and just hit 1.29 million in number of subscribers (it was 1.23M last week!). These female characters embody women independence and empowerment. They are strong, they can be fierce and fearless. That’s what endears them–what endears Andrea–to viewers more. She is not just a pretty face.      

Of course, she has detractors. Andrea has her share of online bullies, especially those that hide behind dummy accounts. How do they affect her? Let’s see. Everytime I see this, I swear, I feel a swell of pride, no exaggeration.

Goodbye, Sandra Dee

When I was in college, I became a DJ on radio. We were asked to come up with our airnames. “Eponine” from Les Miserables could seem either pretentious or unrelatable, so no. Not because you want something, it means you should have it, right?
But I remembered the musical Grease where the character Rizzo called the lead, Sandy, “Sandra Dee”. I didn’t know that there was an actual singer decades earlier who bore the name. I just KNEW I had to take the name.
That is trivia for you, and my only way to pay tribute to the lady that inspired me then.

Rest in peace,

Miss Olivia Newton-John.

And thank you.08newton1-articlelarge
