I think a big reason for the variety of ways Sanvers is written is because of the lack of actual Sanvers content. There wasn't a lot of quality content so people use their imagination and end up writing ooc. This is a big problem with Maggie because it took ages for us to really learn anything personal about her and even now we don't know that much. I mean it took until 2.19 to find out Kara and Maggie don't get along when people had already started headcannoning that Maggie and Kara were close.
yeah, but even then… idk maybe it’s just common sense to me but sometimes it’s the simple stuff. sometimes i see fic where alex and maggie are just… goofy? i’m trying to word it right. do you get what i mean? don’t get me wrong we definitely have a pair of some ugly soft lesbians on our hands but i feel like people write them TOO soft and TOO open like i just want a good balance of alex and maggie being silly around each other but also being serious. idk. this is worded kind of weirdly but i hope some of y’all will get it
