Iโ€™ve toyed with the idea of writing a Grateful Dead picture book for years but canโ€™t figure a way into the story without mentioning drugs so... Someone else might have a good idea though so I guess I should tag it with a #mswl โœŒ๐Ÿผโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’€

Sirens Conference @sirens_con

Question Eight:

Whatโ€™s an under-used villain trope, or a trope usually attached to male villains, that youโ€™d like to see explored with female and nonbinary villains?

#SirensChat pic.twitter.com/GsMx3Uu47k

Cults of personality.

Historically & in fiction, villains who amass power via charisma, mass manipulation, & curated public personae are male. Non-male villains usually use psychological/emotional power on individuals (e.g. femmes fatales). I want this trope genderswapped!
