huh weird so rapists are, like, lying about the number of people they’ve raped but all we can focus on are those damn hypothetical lying women who lied about being assaulted? lying liars lying all the time damn women lying. there’s a bigger lie in our midst, it would seem
Mike, MST3K: The Leech Woman
it will probably mean i’ve slipped into an alternate dimension
which might be a win/win
(can we just once have a non-gritty reboot? not puppies and rainbows and fairy kisses but just, like, ugh shut up with the angst for two seconds?)
quick! someone talk to me about nancy drew while i contemplate graphic ideas!
i always wanna talk abt nancy drew but now when someone requests i have no idea /what/ exactly to talk about
My thoughts are always:
-She’s super badass/such a courageous person.
-She is irritated when people underestimate her, and she enjoys proving her skills.
-She loves helping people, and not for money/recognition. In fact, most of the time she shies away from recognition.
-Her friends are always there to help, and they totally get her.
-She has an incredibly sweet, thoughtful, supportive boyfriend who is proud of her and always wants to spend more time with her, who has been in awe of her and loved her pretty much since the day they met.
-Threats just make her try harder.
-Her father, 99% of the time, trusts her and supports her, and lets her do what she wants.
-When she’s described, the adjective is “pretty” or “attractive,” not “beautiful” or “drop-dead gorgeous.” She doesn’t obsess over her diet.
-She laughs with people, not at them.
*Most of the above applies to book-Nancy, not necessarily game-Nancy.
