Come to the Discworld fandom where zero women are murdered for reasons of male character development.
In other fictional lands, bad guys are headed to hurt the protagonist’s lady and we think “Oh, no, that poor woman!”
In Discworld, we think, “Oh, no, those poor bad guys!”
(Well, not really. It’s more like “Ooh, Sybil/Angua/Adora/Magrat is gonna fuck that idiot’s shit *right* up. This should be fuuuuun.”
Tiffany. You forgot Tiffany Aching. One of the biggest badasses of the Discworld. And her mentor, Granny Weatherwax - THE biggest badass of the Discworld.
You forgot Granny Aching, the woman who became basically the [god] of shepherds and whose sheep-dogs Lightning and Thunder more or less literally turned into the storm, and the clouds became known as her lambs.
And of course, Conina, daughter of Cohen the Barbarian, whose morphic inheritance from her father means that she can kill pretty much anything that moves, which seriously gets in the way of her hairdressing career.
Also Susan Sto-Helit, Death’s granddaughter, who will not be having any of your nonsense.
And Miss Flitworth, who had Death for a lodger after he got fired, and who completely by herself learned how to manifest her lifetimer and split her life with another person, letting Death kill the new tyrant death that the Auditors were trying to set up.
Or Lady Margolotta, the de facto ruler of most of above-ground Uberwald, the first B-total vampire and founder of the League of Temperance.
And then there’s Glenda, ruler of the Night Kitchen at Unseen University, who has literally looked upon things that made grown wizards run away screaming and demanded to be shown it again so that she can find the detail she wanted. And who went to harangue the city’s tyrant, and also harangued Lady Margolotta at one point. (“She harangued me.” “Yes, she does it very well. You feel as if you’ve had a nice cold bath.”)
Which, this is the other thing: every single one of these women is different. Possessed of different skills, different life experiences, different everything. Glenda is a cook; Susan Sto-Helit is a governess/school-mistress who occasionally has to do some Death work; Miss Flitworth is an ancient farm-lady; Adora Belle Dearheart is an activist (is she just); Angua is a Watch Captain; etc.
Okay but can we talk about about Madame Sharn and Cheery Littlebottom and Blodwen Rhysdaughter because there are not enough dwarf ladies on this list.
