Thoughts on last night’s episode?? Did you like it? Why or why not? Did her actions speak to character or plot? Tell me!!
Purely from a storytelling pov, I think liking anything based on gender isn’t good.
If you loved last night’s GoT because it was well written and the story was well executed that is one thing, but if you liked it just because a certain female was badass that is a problem–same with Endgame.
Female characters are doing badass things these days more and more just to fill a need but aren’t serving the story.
That to me is just as wrong as not having them.
I didn’t see the GoT episode but I know what happened and I have heard mixed reviews.
When writing always avoid anything that starts with an idea in your head, “wouldn’t it be cool if…” and then literally anything that follows that. Please, your story and characters deserve better.
