Or, cough, Dean as a romance novel copy editor. I wonder if I poke azephirin hard enough, will she write it for me?
In TV shows (not Supernatural, I don't want to start a smackdown here) who are your favorite female characters? cerberos has pointed out that empathetic spiritual women and I never get along. Like I love Cuddy from House, Brennan from Bones, Jo from Eureka, and Zoe from Firefly, but Inara? We are not friends.
I ask, because I wonder if there are any traits that always make you root for a character. I know that Starbuck is a fave. Personally I feel like my own pattern comes from Ryooko from Tenchi Muyo! CYBERNETIC SPACEPIRATE WITH CABBIT SPACESHIP? What's not to love.
Also, for those that ask, yes I have indeed written analogues of Flack into two separate original works now. It's the eyes. And I tell ericaplease I'm not that obsessed!
