Morning :)

I'm sure everyone/s familiar with the Women in Refrigerators idea, where a woman is tortured/harmed/threatened etc. to further a man's story. Has anyone read/seen a story where she is harmed because of him, he does rescue her, and yet it ends up propelling them both along? She gets revenge as well as he does, for example.

I went to a Hobbit marathon yesterday, saw Battle of the Armies for the first time. While I would have liked to see the younger actresses take a more aggressive part , there were at least three actresses who did, two of them main characters.

For some reason, this started me thinking about part of a story I wrote years ago that is WiR themed - she is tortured and dumped, and so he goes after her torturers. I do want to use this eventually; he very rarely shows emotion and he does in these scenes. Yet I know better now than to fall too far into a WiR scenario. But I'm iffy on how. Plotting is not my strong point. .

If I can get some ideas from reading, I'd have something for my brain to mull over until I'm prepared to dig up that story.

I may have to combine it with other bits and pieces, but I have enough on my plate that I've planned to be written first.
