Ahhhh, right.

Another good reason to watch Rome.

Cause I found Nyx:

OK, so she needs to be taller, darker and put on ten more pounds of muscle, but watch her take on the guys in Rome (in every way), and oh yeah - that's Nyx.

I love it when that happens.

But why aren't they writing strong heroines for actresses like this one to play who aren't, you know, whores and crack addicts?

That's for me to write, I suppose.

Sometimes I get this feeling that I'm the only one who wants a woman to seriously kick ass in a not-sexy way. I want her to be fucking SCARY.

4 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

You are NOT the only one.

Yeah, that's Nyx alright.

And Deb - glad I'm not the only one. I just need to convince people who buy books about that. ha ha

Nope, definitely not alone.

I had a conversation with someone trying to sketch my protagonist for me. Trying to convince him that "tiny" did not equate to "delicate". Tiny, strong, sharp, and damned dangerous, dammit! Very frustrating.
