Final Girl 10-12

I realized, writing this series, that one thing that makes writing a prose slasher story much harder than writing a slasher movie is that you can convey grief much more easily on screen than you can in writing.  If I was to handle these characters' reactions believably, I had to spend a lot of time writing about their grief over losing their friends.  That makes this a pretty heavy series as far as TG fiction goes.

Also, I'm still traumatized by Tara's death on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I identified with her very strongly, so her death was unusually painful as far as TV deaths go.

You can follow this and my other series on my series page.
