(Also, who is Perry Mason?)
Actually I think this says more about the age of the OP than anything else!I just don't believe anyone (even a Brit like me) can ask that. :doh:
Someone else has told me that she finds some of my female characters to be "not nice girls." For example, Jennie in my previous story "Jennie's Diet" (now in the BHM general achive). Maybe I'm just attracted to dominant women :batting: ! Actually, I didn't think of Laura as being that mean in my own mind. Maybe she just came across that way because of the words I put in her mouth.On another note regarding the story itself, I confess I find your male characters in general quite appealing and realistic, but I have problems relating to your female characters. They're so oddly mean-pushy-positive.
Have you ever thought of discussing them with a woman friend or female reader?
I think I've heard of it or something similar before, just wasn't sure if that's what you meant. I would be careful about using "funny" to mean gay, "dumb" story or not...though in this case its use could be put down to Laura not being the most politically correct person :sAs for "funny" - yes, exactly, gay. Haven't you ever seen the limp wrist gesture? Hope I'm not offending anyone, it's a stereotype, I know, but after all, it's just a dumb story!
Actually I disagree! Humiliation is not Susie's main motivation imo. She seems more like an ambiguous and thus genuine character, dealing with conflicting emotions and perceptions. I highly approve of her and am increasingly liking the flow of the story!That was sexy Ah, but poor Bruce - all the women in his life want to humiliate him!
I agree - I think Susie is showing great signs of conflicting emotions.Actually I disagree! Humiliation is not Susie's main motivation imo.
