There were many, but which one is your favourite? Who is the superior mother in SoapLand, and why? This is about a character who, in her role as the mother, influenced the story. To avoid a hundred baby-plotlines, think of the mother's initiative, her drive. Hoping that the baby won't die isn't a "drive", because in this case it's the baby (or the baby's fate) that places her in the mother role. Whatever it is that happens (or happened), it has to be her doing, but the reasons are unlimited of course. Do you have 5 favourites? p.s. stepmothers, fake mothers and dreamed-up mothers are allowed too.
