Dutch’s wife is onscreen for a minute or less. And from that, I had to figure out how to write for her in a multi-chapter fic.

One thing about her: she stands her ground and isn’t intimidated by Jim’s former Army commander (who is actually quite rude to her). When she expresses disbelief over the guy announcing himself as John Smith (“Is that a bloomin’ joke?! John Smith!”), he responds by telling her to move her “bon-bon”. **headdesk.** She won’t, and he has to plow past her to get inside.

I love Jim’s comment: “I guess this means you don’t plan to announce us?” And the look she gives him. LOL.

I love her; she is awesome.
