Rowan (narrating): A big part of why I’m a loyal MCLIS fan, errors and all, is the whispers episodes. The first one, back in season 1 . . . it helped me process some things I hadn’t actually realized I was feeling until the characters put it into words.
Also: every time Lt. Badiane uses her Soothing Voice to reassure a victim, it clears my skin and waters my crops.
If my actual story was in the news . . . if people were judging my personal life and fictionalizing it without my permission . . . that would suck.
But when it happens to characters . . . When it’s done right . . .
Those writers are doing good in the world, and I will fight anyone who says otherwise.
