Hmm, I never thought of that before, but it’s a really interesting idea for an AU.
It probably exists somewhere, but I’ve not really kept up with the fanfiction scene for this fandom. There was just too much of it too fast and it was a bit overwhelming xD But, yeah, I think it would make an interesting idea too.
I wonder if as time goes on, what with her guard coming down and the influence of the people that would have been in her life anyhow, she’ll become closer to the character she would have been had it not happened. I mean, I’m sure she’ll never be exactly that person since she’ll always have some of the personality that she learned given her past circumstances, but I also like to imagine some of her personality is inherent and that it would have been part of her in FTL. /end ramble lol
