* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Twice she's had a pitch which would have pleased a large number of fans. Firstly, she wanted to bring Cassandra Cain into ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' with a story that would transform her into a Christian, citing the fact that while an atheist herself she feels religion is misrepresented in comics. Secondly, she pitched a new book for the [[{{ComicBook/New52}} New 52]] which involved Stephanie Brown and a handful of other missing female characters and form a team and would be co-written by Bryan Q Miller. Both were unable to come to pass due to some issues involving both Cass and Steph.
** She had several scripts written that were scrapped when she was briefly fired from Batgirl, and her concept for the "Zero Year" crossover issue of Batgirl was "cool," but [=DC=] wanted someone else to write it. But the crossover isn't editorially mandated-- the writers of the various books all expressed interest!
** DC also rejected a pitch for a Shazam family comic that would be written by her, Mark Waid, and Grant Morrison.
** She wrote the episode "Double Date" for ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited''. It was originally going to be about Barbara Gordon getting injured when working on a case, so she calls Black Canary and Huntress to solve it for her. Gail also wanted to write an episode with the Queen of Fables as the villain.

* InternetCounterattack: She declared November 13 to be "Cosplay Appreciation Day" [[http://www.uproxx.com/gammasquad/2012/11/tony-harris-cosplay-appreciation-day/ as a form of peaceful retaliation against artist Tony Harris's rather... angry thoughts on cosplay written on that day in 2012]].

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Broadly, any time she stops to praise another creator, especially Creator/KellySueDeConnick (more or less her Marvel equivalent) or a newer writer like Marguerite Bennett. Specifically, there's a cute bit on Twitter where she shares an anecdote about the first time she met Kelly Sue [=DeConnick=] in person. [=DeConnick=] had her young daughter with her, dressed up as Wonder Woman. Simone complimented her on her costume, but the little girl was disappointed in it, claiming "I don't have THE THINGS!" and bared her wrists-- she didn't have Wonder Woman's bullet-blocking bracelets. [=DeConnick=] jumped in to tell Simone how great she was with her kid and to say that, for months afterward, every time Simone went to a convention, she tried to find Wonder Woman bracelets that would fit a preschooler.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Gail Simone is incredibly hospitable and is usually never one to bash any comic or author no matter how bad fan reaction is. However, she recently stated that [[http://gailsimone.tumblr.com/post/65553727219/renaroo-30-days-of-dc-day-4-bro-id-bring she could not defend the ''Titans: Villains For Hire'' issue where Ryan Choi was brutally killed off, stating it to be one of the worst comics she ever read.]]

* NeverLiveItDown: She's the face of the anti-fridging movement on the internet, formed primarily in response to the pointless murder of Green Lantern Kyle Rayner's love interest for drama. And then Simone had something of a FunnyAneurysm moment when she openly declared she was glad BrianMichaelBendis had killed off The Wasp.

* WriterRevolt: Flat-out refused to do some part of the ''ComicBook/DeathOfTheFamily'' storyline and was ''fired'' for it. DC re-hired her after the backlash, but one assumes someone else will be writing those issues...
