Looks good so far, though one thing to watch for...don't make them "intentionally female". Its a personal pet peeve that strong women have to have some feme hobbies to make them feminine. Like the line "I hope this doesn't take long, I have to get back to my baking" and "I have to go shopping" its just a personal thing. Ramones girl should hit a concert afterwards

Understandable. When we first started, I asked Brooke to help me out and avoid female stereotyping.
It sort of happened because of my fear that I would end up creating male characters in female bodies. This is the first time I've written a fictional story with women as the main characters, so maybe I'm overcompensating.

There are some simple things we've avoided such as making them say 'like'. There are times where a guy would normally use the word 'what' instead. For example, there is a scene coming up where Ally says '...what, every day?" whereas, generally, women would use the term 'like'. Not sure why this is... I could be wrong though...
