kate x maggie
Oh boy, okay. This is complicated. I mean it’s basically the first and only real and healthy relationship Kate’s ever had (you think she had one of those on her years long booze-cruise?) so that’s kind of huge for her. So this one’s 9, easily.
Maggie is stable. Maggie does not allow Kate to wallow in her crap or play the martyr. And Kate desperately needs that. Maggie needs somebody more passionate than she is, more outgoing. Otherwise, the only thing she’d do is work till she’s dead and be as good a mom as she can be. So they make sense. But that’s the thing about Kate and Mags.
They make sense…but not the most sense.
They can’t ever be a 10, and it’s not because DC Editorial fucked it all up. It’s because Renee Montoya exists. See, when shit gets bad, and I mean end-of-the-world bad, Maggie isn’t the woman you want in that narrative spot.
Because they’d kill her. Next ask gets into this.
