Why am I doing this when I should be studying for my biology exam? I must've gotten my priorities wrong again, damn. -_-'
Anyway, I got into a talk with a fellow... um, Erin Hunter critic? with regards to the whole "Ugh you lied I hate you"-scenario that more or less coats the whole BramblexSquirrel shipping these days. (yeah, I never tire of that particular point now do I? ^^' Heh, sorry) It's just that the Erins have this amazing knack of infuriating me...
Which made me start thinking I could do some more follow-ups on my small ficlets (you remember these; Predestined part two
?) dealing with this very neglected detail of their relationship, namely the matter of just how honest Bramble has been in comparison to Squirrel, which isn't much really. And as usual, poor little Squirrel ends up sad and disraught, which seems to be a trend whenever I write of her. O.o
But remember, the character portrayals might wander a bit from the books' canon; The Bramblestar in my mind is not the gobbled-up mess of outright stupidity and hypocrisy the Erins have made him out to be. And my post-series Squirrelflight is a girl who's more or less traumatized to a degree by a year's worth of rejections (you don't just forget shit like that) and is more evened out between her seeming outward strength, and fragile inside. That, and please do remember this chick is pregnant here. UvU
I tried not to focus overmuch on the sad parts, but I'm really divided between thinking I made an acceptable job on this fic, or just bothed it royally. T.T
And once again; I am not English-born, so I'll apologize beforehand if you find my language not to your taste, or there's this gruesome grammatical error that just stands out in your eyes. Or if you just can't stand the story as a whole. xD
