hi yulin, i sent lauren an appreciation note, and she recommended you as one of the people who inspire her. and I JUST DISCOVERED YOU YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!! oh my god, the work you produce is amazing! also cool collab with ford. again, seeing cool female characters in the media is one thing, but knowing that behind the scenes there are women who created them is just incredible. we're making progress. and you are part of that. and if that's not cool af then I don't know what it is

Thank you so much! I’m currently fangirling out over @thelaurenshippen quite a bit this week - we met a while back when I did an episode of a podcast she co-hosted called Chicks Who Script, and I knew she did nifty cool badass creative things but hadn’t yet gone down the rabbit hole of fictional podcasts at that point in my life.

I’ve spent the better part of this week binging The Bright Sessions for the first time ever, and now I’m kicking myself for not starting sooner (though also pleased that I don’t have to wait between all these episodes, the suspense would probably kill me.)

Anyway. Thanks for the support, and keep showing up for good work created by women! It helps us in so many ways, I read this on a day when I really needed it.

Can I say I was a little unimpressed when I saw Lexa at first? I only knew her name and gifs from the kiss scene and I had already elected Anya my resident badass of choice. So I was looking for this Lexa and when she arrived I went "What? This barely more than a child server is the person everyone is going crazy for? How? Why?" and 5 minutes later I understood. And now I miss her every day.

Yeah see I had already been spoiled with regard to everything so I knew that she was a badass even when she first came in. Actually seeing her kick ass only grew my appreciation.

I don’t know why but I just remembered something @taylorswift said back in 2008. “One day I’m going to find someone who’s right for me. And when I look at that person, I’m not even going to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18.” But that grin afterward. Omg. I knew she’d be a badass
