see that has me so bitter because i think it would have been interesting topic to tackle in the canon verse especially since i imagine not very many commanders lived long enough to have families and significant others. lexa trying to balance between her commander role, being a leader to her people and being with clarke. that's what i love about your fic is that we get to see them tackle that. them trying to find that balance, granted in modern setting but still that struggle to find balance.
Thanks! I hope our readers can recognize that it’s a natural struggle without feeling the need to take sides? I see a lot of people rallying to Clarke’s defense here- and for what? Not like it’s Lexa’s fault. If Clarke wanted to, she could tell Lexa how she feels, but she has these built in insecurities that worry her too much. And then- I see comments like “Lexa should be more considerate” how? She’s overly considerate. She’s doing x, y, and z to make everyone happy. You know what I mean? It’s not as black and white as “Oh it’s Lexa’s fault.” It’s a grown up, real life dynamic, that needs to work itself out.
