Useful to whom? Is this useful in a good way or in her usual way? Because there isn't much of a challenge writing about it being useful in her usual way

@Sandie556

We left that part vague, so that you can decide from whose perspective the beetle form is 'useful'.

Do we need to write about her actually using her form, or can it be like the aftermath of her using it for something useful as long as we make it clear that her form was useful?

I am not sure if that makes much sense so let me know if I need to clarify

Ooh, interesting! Didn't think about it that way. As long as the prompt is fulfilled - in the beginning, or at the end, or in the middle - what happens outside of that is all up to you. So, yes, however you want to portray that prompt/story to us is your choice.

Should I keep Rita completely in character?
And can I change what happened to Rita, like before she became a reporter?

@Cobalt-Silver-Foster

Hmm.. I'm guessing you're asking whether you can write an AU? We didn't specify anywhere that you can't, so what you decide to change from the canon is up to you.

@Cobalt-Silver-Foster You may give a title if you want but that's not a requirement
