>>79799280>I'm rather surprised as you seem to like her suffering in your stories.
I know it may sound callous, but I think that seeing her suffering is kinda funny, while seeing her hold on in spite of her sufference is endearing — at least, to me.
I tend to be quite generous with the pain I distribute in my stories, and in turn everybody gets some slapstick and some emotional stress: but for the most part I intend those situations to be tests of the character, meant to make readers sympathize with them, and take comfort in the unfortunate chars overcoming their hardships in the end.>You ever thought of doing a story focused on her like your Jackie one?
I might try something like that, in the future.
Funny thing: before discarding the idea anyway, because it wouldn't fit the story well (and also that fic won't ever see the light of day anyway, FFS!), at some point I planned on ending the "cheerleader training camp" fic with Janna bluntly declaring herself to Marco, while the boy was still on the fence about doing the same with Jackie. It was supposed to be a cliffhanger, but also a HUGE moment of personal growth for Janna.>which interpretation is your preference?
I'm not much for the "gypsy" interpretation: my Janna is a pretty ordinary girl, who at some point took a passion for the dark and esoteric, and is far more too mischievous and crafty for her own good. She DEFINITELY steals stuff from Marco, but not necessarily from others — although she has a very loose sense of private property anyway.
One day, I wish I'll find a way to explore the trio she forms with Jackie and Hope, which is kinda interesting, in my opinion.
