Not all writers, only this movie ones [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad you're a writer so I can ask you this: how hard is it to create a believable female military officer? Someone who doesn't fall in love with a guy from her job, doesn't do rush things so he has to run after her to save her neck. someone who isn't commanding men and women twice her age, etc? Yes, I know that many soldiers were in their teens, especially in Vietnam, for example, but there was no situation where those teen captains were commanding men twice their age and experience.

I expect Tauriel to be a fun character and Evie to bring maturity that teen actress the character was modeled after wouldn't. I'm just saying that it wouldn't hurt if she was modeled after a real military woman.

"RadagaStoner deserves no mercy!" Tauriel the Radagast Slayer, the Chief of Inglorious Elfguards

Tauriel saved us from Itaril. Never forget.
