« on: August 12, 2022, 04:02:17 PM »
I'm not great at summarizing my own work, so sorry in advance. Any feedback is appreciated.

SYNOPSIS

Trillian (15) wants to take over the world and antagonize Billie, her superhero ex-girlfriend, but once supervillain society shuns her, Trillian wants to give up. The pep talks from her spider sidekick can’t sway her yet when a talking antique helps her temporarily take over the city, Trillian finds the resilience to continue.

Even though Trillian’s trying to start small, her schemes remain unsuccessful. Complicating matters, Billie keeps meddling. As the girls reconnect over a stolen hyena and a bottled water MLM, Trillian hesitates to let those who her hurt back into her heart. During a class trip Trillian reciprocates Billie's desire to start over, until Billie helps frame Trillian for a crime she did not commit. In retaliation, Trillian turns her school into spiders and spirals to the point she ends up behind bars. When Trillian’s sidekick gets fed up with her belittlement, Trillian parts ways with him and escapes prison alone.

Billie hunts down Trillian, who is on the run in the sewers. She ultimately doesn’t execute her boss’ order to kill Trillian. Once she stands up for herself, Billie’s boss claims he has eliminated Trillian in her stead. In her grief, Billie has a meltdown on live television, when everyone around her freezes. Billie can run away from a life she can’t control because Trillian has brainwashed the city after amplifying her powers. Yet Trillian casts world domination aside when she sees that wrath doesn’t change the fact that she’s controlled by her past.
 
Trillian pulls Billie out of a depressive episode and they expose how the superhero industry has exploited them. Infuriated, Billie’s boss tries to paint himself as a hero again, but his attempt gets out of control. In the ensuing fight and victory, Billie overcomes her desire to please everyone, Trillian learns she can depend on others and the girls rekindle their relationship.
