I am writing a story with a white bisexual cis woman as a main character. As a teen she is inspired to become a warrior by an encounter with a mercenary who is a black transwoman. The main character has a huge crush on the mercenary but it is not reciprocated (age being the main factor as well as the merc having a lover) and while the mercenary does train the main character she is only doing so for money. Does this fall under/skirt magic negro/strong black woman stereotypes.

Avoiding a “Magical Strong Black Woman” II

The character does not necessarily fall under these tropes.

She’s portrayed as desirable, seeing as the MC has a crush on her + the woman has a lover, so that alone is a step away from the Strong Black Woman. 

I can’t truly speak for any intersections I might be missing in regards to her being trans as well, so Black+trans followers I do welcome your commentary if there’s anything to mention here.

The Black character is also training the white MC for money as opposed to just having all the time in the world to devote to training her (though the reason could be out or partially from the kindness of her heart and it wouldn’t be inherently problematic lest it fell into the mentioned no life/motivation or agency outside the MC deal.)

Do try to show multiple sides to this character though so her image isn’t solely the hardened “strong” mercenary. Maybe she’s really light at heart, openly affectionate towards those she cares about, has a good cause she believes in…etc etc. 

Thanks for asking!

Hi Anon,

*sighs* Well if its really them with those accounts then I’m glad he’s with family.

You’d think though, 2 twenty somethings,’totally and utterly in love’ and separated for long periods of time would want time to themselves not with the family in tow.


That could apply to both Liam and Zayn with their respective ‘partners’ btw.   And yet family goes too, because god knows they a) need some respite and b) the family can come in useful for when the main target of the beard can not be arsed to stunt with the beard in the first place.

And btw, they’re so private are they?  That we get to see all these ‘authentic’ ‘look at us we’re so close to the family’ facebook and insta leaks over and over again.
