Who are the pink ladies/barbie saints?
The Pink Ladies/Barbie Saints are a group of women out in zone 2 who have bonded together over similar illness’ or life circumstances. Most of the original members are cancer survivors who escaped Battery City after learning just how steep a price their cures would be. Most of the times getting these ‘cures’ required giving up family members and/or their lives to fully commit to Mom and Dad’s way of living. It’s a steep price just to keep from dying.
Wearing pink hair they do their best to save others and continue pushing the word of good will and promise of a better life through the zones. Those with pink hair are those still suffering their maladies, terminal illness and/or have limited lifespans. Dying your hair shows that you know the witch breathes on the back of your neck and at any time you could succumb and become pure neon.
Not everyone dons the bright do’s. Those who are saved and don’t suffer mortal sickness/wounds just wear pink clothing and continue the work of their sisters/brothers. Taking in anyone and everyone who needs their help they’ve done their part to not only rescue children from bad situations but also hide killjoys from Drac patrols.
Recruitment is by pink hair only so going and hoping to impress won’t always get you in. These women, and men, do their best to show their bravery and courage every damn day. Despite the consequences they preserver and stomp the dust deeper into their soles.
Funerals for those in pink are week long celebrations of life. Each member speaks of their experiences with the departed. There’s much crying, and just as much laughter along with the sentimental moments.
Long live our Pink Ladies. May the witch forever favor her little Barbie Saints.
