Title: Grand Theft Lizard
Medium: hand-drawn artwork (ink and watercolor)
Title: Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace
Pairing(s): none (gen)
Summary: It’s hard sometimes for a woman to speak her mind, harder still when it means speaking out against a friend and teammate. Teyla reaffirms what it means to be the only woman on an otherwise male team, and relearns the importance of communicating with her teammates.
Notes: Major props, as always, go out to rusting_roses for her beta-ing skills, and of course to sholio for creating the amazing piece of art that inspired this fic. I also need to thank all of the lovely women out there who reminded me of the importance of representing ourselves in our fiction. In many TV shows, women get the short end of the stick, and somehow, that found its way into my writing over the last few years where I’ve written almost exclusively male characters. This fic is for all of us women, and to remind us that we define our fandom, and it sure as hell better have a place for strong female characters.
