Conversation with a heroine

Chatting with Jill, from Twice Upon A Roadtrip

Jill: You need to strengthen my character so people will root for me? What the hell does that mean?

Shan: You’re unsympathetic.

Jill: *narrows eyes* You’re forever getting dinged for unsympathetic heroines. What’s the deal with that?

Shan: Obviously a bunch of whiny, obnoxious women live in my head.

Jill: :censor: Maybe you should try writing gay romance, hmmmm?

Shan: So I should slap a penis on you and call you Jack?

Jill: Ah…no thanks.

Shan: It would certainly add something to your character.

Jill: I think she meant character traits, like nobility or humility or something, not body parts.

Shan: If I change the setting I could even give you two!

Jill: Somebody needs a nap.

    Rae…:whip: Get to :type:

    I really wish my vampire’s heroine would stop :blah: in my ear, though. She’s trying like heck to drown out my Roadtrip couple. :eyebrow:

    And a certain lady with a :penguin: fetish will break out the :whip: soon.
