FINISHED THE (NON) FIX-IT FIC YESSS. It’s now 3k of I-don’t-actually-know-what. Off to edit it, so I can get it online before S4 starts airing…
You are freakishly fast. Also grabby hands
Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.
so instead of writing anything vaguely resembling canon appropriate poi ff, I’m doing a Shaw/Root meet cute case of the week type James Bond thing that is not only entirely implausible but also 80% pwp
because screw continuity apparently
