Hmmm. Badger Girl sounds like a silly supervillain idea. Trapping otherwise nice guys in crappy relationships and intimidating them with her freaky badger claws. An idea headed right for the slush pile.
It reminded me of that Werewolf novel I started to write last year. Badger Girl reminded me of the love interest's bitchy girlfriend who Werewolf Girl lures to her "moon room" and "accidentally" murders/devours.
I swear, I'm not fixated on violent animal/human hybrids. Just nice ones! Like mermaids! Who... lure sailors to their watery tombs... Oh, nevermind.
