So on January 26th (in the middle of the Lyckham arc) I sent this tweet at 1 A.M. PST (4 A.M. my time) to Lydia.
I’m pretty sure that I woke up, saw her and Wickham tweeting back and forth with each-other, and thought it would be fun to pull a quote from Episode 2, tell her she’s worth more, and go back to sleep.
I don’t actually remember writing it, but there you go.
I felt comfortable doing this because Lydia Bennet is a fictional character. There was no person that I was hurting by writing this tweet. I do not slut-shame in actuality. Trust me, I have no business slut-shaming.
Anyways, so I got a little bit of flack about this afterwards but then this happened…
And then my Tumblr inbox started crying. I started to wonder if my tweet had actually been taken into consideration when writing the script.
So I messaged Rachel Kiley, who wrote this episode and is basically an awesome possum perfect person. This was her response…
So. Yeah. Not sure how to end this post, but THERE YOU ARE.
