Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.

LBD Regency AU (AKA Pride and Prejudice)
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”
Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters have to deal with the rules of Regency England and the fact that they will have to marry well. However Elizabeth refuses to settle for any man especially the snobby Mr. Darcy.
