So this is a thing that may be happening
I have been pondering lately what beauty means (specifically in regards to my bb Brie), and frankly getting a little irritated by fandom’s insistence that, “No Brienne’s pretty, really. She’s just unconventionally pretty.” I mean, interpret the text as you will (I don’t interpret it that way, but whatever), but that’s really not the point of her character. And then this prompt/fic happened on goldstraw’s blog, and my brain wouldn’t go away.
And then I saw frontally and memorde’s girl gang AU, and I started wondering how far an AU can go and keep the integrity of a character. And because I have to fic my emotions, this happened over my morning coffee. It may go somewhere. We’ll see.
Long rambles to say, I wrote Brienne as a supermodel. An ugly one.
