Welcome to the Real World 2: Clare's Turn
I didn't have that many thoughts on Clare's personality. I saw her as wild and fun loving, but fiercely loyal and capable of really messing somebody up if they crossed her. Claudia immediately saw Clare as a stand in for her, even down to the fact that both women share the first three letters in their names. However, Claudia never mentioned this to me until her notes on my first draft of Welcome to the Real World 2.
"I would never put up with that kind of disrespect," she said. "Especially if I had a riding crop in my hand already."
"Well Clare's not you," I replied.
"Really? I always just assumed she was," she answered.
Then it hit me, she was right. She really liked number two because it was definitely Clare's turn to shine both in the public humiliation of making Kylie flirt with a waiter to some very painful spankings, but mostly in patiently helping Kylie and Beth to find their way through a female dominated relationship that didn't require the constant threat of exposure to make it work.
