This one was inspired by a Lightning Made of Owls comic, in a round-about way. I vaguely remembered something about a meta-Bechdel test, and decided that'd be a good hook for a script. I wrote it, then I looked up where I'd heard it before. There are only a handful of hits for "meta-Bechdel test" on the web, one of the main ones being Lightning Made of Owls #754. I took a look at some of the others, but they were much less inspiring or sensible as "meta" level tests.
So thanks to Colin Foster for inventing the best concept of the meta-Bechdel test.
