like fr, what is the point of introducing all these new plot points that we had no idea about before, when you have a gold mine of other issues to dig into irt her character and relationships? they dropped the ball imo tbh
See. Here’s the thing about Rachel Amber.
In theory I like her a lot. She’s someone who everyone loved and no one knew. Chloe and Frank both thinking that they were the only ones that knew her but that not really being the case. She was a fun loving teenager that was also selfish and manipulative￼￼￼ but able to cover it with genuine kindness for the most part.
What I like about her isn’t that she’s a wonderful perfect ￼person! That’s the entire fucking point! She was a flawed teenage girl that wanted out of her shit home town and was willing to go to some pretty bad men to do so. And that’s an idea I can work with. That’s a wonderful idea to work with in fanfic!
What I can’t is how the fandom, and honestly BtS didn’t help, seems to think her and Chloe had this perfect relationship? And that Rachel was this…. paragon of a person. Just deal with the fact that Rachel and Chloe wouldn’t have worked around the time of LiS because clearly Rachel wasn’t working out her issues and neither was Chloe tbh.
