Looking back on the writing of your muse, and in roleplay, what would you define as the turning point where they really came together?

The turning point for Sharon in terms of prompt writing came when I stopped taking my answers solely from the source material of the show from the first season. There was some great stuff for both the "Athena" and "Boomer" versions of Sharon, but once I started exploring the generic "Eight" version, it really began to open up for her. Although THIS PROMPT really was my first attempt at trying something new with Sharon, and focusing on "Boomer" rather than "Athena", since "Athena"!Sharon is so much easier for me to write. I think because I can relate to her in many ways, whereas "Boomer"!Sharon is younger, more fragile, and completely different.

In terms of RP, there was no RP at first. It's difficult to RP something that is still on TV and keep it canon based when you have no idea where the character is going or where the storyline is going. Once I realized that and started RPing with Lee!mun ([ profile] arrow_of_apollo), we were able to get into some really interesting motivations for our characters. I began to see some darker, more selfish sides to Sharon which I loved. Flawed characters always are the most interesting to me, and before the non-canon-RP and AU ship, I wasn't able to see it at all. Sharon was the poor-put-upon Cylon all the time. Now, she's so much more complex, and I've tried to write that into her AU prompts here to reflect that. I also tried experimenting with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person POV prompt replies.

Right now, though, I have to credit the mun for Kara ([ profile] burnandrave) for helping me branch out even further into another AU!verse, and to help explore the friendship between Sharon and Kara. The RP has been completely in character, but it's allowed me to continue to stretch the Lee/Sharon ship all while keeping it set firmly in the BSG universe.

I suppose there's not really one moment in terms of anything for Sharon, because I've loved writing her from day one, but in terms of her RP, I have to thank every BSG muse she has ever played with. They are the ones who have helped me grow as her writer.
