Author X Audience
by Theresa Tyree
Alexis Ainsley is used to struggle. From her strained familial relations to her bisexuality to her anxiety and trying to score an editorial internship, she’s familiar with how hard life can be—although this is her first time struggling with reality when Terry Walsh, the creator of hit cartoon series Serenity Peaks, bumps into her at the movie theater. After hearing her talk about his show as more than just a fan, Terry asks to see Alexis again, and it’s not long before Alexis finds herself an intern working alongside Terry on the Serenity Peaks finale. But when tragedy strikes and Terry writes an ending to the series that betrays his female fans, what happens when a fan who got her job through the goodwill of the show’s creator disagrees with his proposed ending to the series? Full of feminist propaganda, tragic backstories, and fan feels, Author x Audience tells the story of a fan and a creator that transcend the limited relationship of author and audience to relate to each other as people—and take it from Alexis; the struggle is real!
