This short story began as a thread on Twitter a few years ago. I had seen another author do one and thought it would be a fun experiment while killing time during lockdown. I think the story turned out okay.
The original premise of it was a scout out…scouting…being what I referred to in my notes as “mind control sniped” and then programmed to take over her team. The loving controller and bullying came as I wrote it as far as I recall.
I’m not sure if I would do another Twitter thread story. The tweets did not get a ton of interaction and while helpful when writing up the story, I was a bit frustrated. Oh well.
