Inspiration behind Cat
Friday, May 16, 2008

A few people have asked my where i came up with this idea. Well, I thought about the Early and his character and I thought what if....what if Mal had a woman before Serenity, an assassin of sorts that tried to kill him, but couldn't because she was looking for her own grip on reality and there it was. I like Inara, I just never felt she needed him. I mean Mal needs to be needed by the woman he loves, like Serenity needs someone to fly her.
As for 'Ski, well, Cat needed a bad ass partner and who else but the very cocky but always entertaining Werzbowski.

So that's my stand and I'm sticking to it.

And I would be open to that discussion as a civilized person. The problem is I'm not sure others would feel that way. The 'just for fun' wasn't to degrade anything. Every one of my characters are my heart and soul poured on paper. I just don't want be to become so over critical that they forget the spirit of the writer.

You see? 'I just never felt she needed him'. We could discuss that; I'd love to discuss that with you and others. I might even post it as a web log (with some ground rules?). Or would that just be 'askin' for trouble'...?
