I don’t talk about Lane’s Girl or the Rebecca Stories on here much, and that’s because I have realized that they are irrevocably Dark Tower fanfiction. Which is sad, really, because I’ve taken what was fanfic and built it up into it’s own nice little world and put in some fantastic characters and situations that aren’t found in the original Dark Tower Series by Stephen King (which I obviously recommend). Lane and Rebecca are probably two of my easiest characters to write well all of the time. Everything they do is interesting and big and complicated. Rebecca, especially, is interesting and complicated. And she’s unlike any other character that I write (you could argue that she’s just Kindra hanging out in the Dark Tower world, but you would be so wrong). Bad stuff has happened to her, and she’s become a bit of a monster because of it, but deep down inside she’s really trying to do the right thing. She’s just got a badly skewed view of how to go about doing it. Probably the best example of this is in The Good Man (which is unabashedly fanfic) where she helps “the bad guys” take out “the good guys”, including Lane and her father, who she loves more than almost anyone in the world.
