So, I think that maybe I'm embarking on a fic in which Kara is introduced in some way (at the end of the Worlds) to a younger half sister (by way of her father) that she previously knew nothing about. The sister will likely be aged 14-17, depending on how you lot feel about it. BUT, as is always the conflict when randomly adding a non-canon character, there's a lot of potential for this character to suck. So, that's where I need your help. Mind filling out this pool to gimme a little halp? [Poll #1837336]

Why yes, I do think a younger sister of Kara's should have my username as a characteristic of her personality. ;)

YES. You are. Lol, I was actually *just* going to mention this in the previous comment, but then I was like, meh, I've been sooooo terrible about actually finishing things, that I didn't want to jump the gun.

Thankfully, this is my last week of school (ahhhh, yay!), and I have no summer plans. So yeah. Lots of writing. Woot, woot.

It would be interesting to see Lee interact with Kara's family for a change, rather than Kara always dealing with the Adamas.

I agree! One of the realities of Canon is that Kara literally has no biological connections left, which I find interesting. I wish we'd seen more often how difficult it is to deal with having literally zero birth family.

Dreilide has always interested me, as we only get a brief glimpse of him, but his character comes through beautifully, and he really is just who you'd imagine Kara's dad to be.

I'd love to explore the idea of family more, so yeah, fo sho. Thanks so much for the comment, dearest.

They do look alike! Awwww, MAH LADIES.

Mac and Caroline would both be such interesting choices! Because they're both awesome, just in really different ways than Kara.

As for ships...I kind of think Lee specifically would be distant and weird about any younger siblings she has because of their Zak issues. ANGST YAY.

Right? Twinsies. So perty.

It'll be interesting to see how the polls pan out. I don't want any of my regular readers feeling excluded, which may happen if I use a character from a fandom not everyone's familiar with -- so I'm leaning toward Mac...because EVERYONE has seen Veronica Mars, right? And is there anyone alive who doesn't want to snuggle Mac? No.

But we'll see. I honestly think all of these ladies could provide some interesting tensions. I'm definitely interested in making this a Kara/Lee romp, because you're right, the angst potential is EPIC.

I sort of like the idea of Kara coming off New Caprica with Kacey, giving Cottle the story Leoben gave her, and then discovering that they're half-sisters. It gives the story a really great AU twist and gives Kara a family connection who isn't immediately competitive.

Of the other fandom options, I like Kaylee the most. They're both very competent, but in quite different areas. Also, I think Kaylee would be very good for Kara--not competitive and exactly the type of person to call Kara out on the head games she plays with herself. As for Lee, I think they would get along swimmingly (because who actually manages to dislike Kaylee). I can see them having lots of conversations trying to figure out Kara (to Kara's enormous irritation), but not getting romantic.
