Set in Tasmania in 1825, “The Nightingale” follows a 21-year-old Irish female convict who witnesses the brutal murder of her husband and baby by her soldier master and his cronies. Unable to find justice, she takes an Aboriginal male tracker with her through the hellish wilderness to seek revenge on the men.
Every time I read about a writer or filmmaker or any other person in a storytelling medium complain: “It’s so hard to write good guys. They’re so boring!” I feel the need to smack them upside the head with the following examples:
Benton Fraser and Ray Kowalski
(Ray only pretends to be a ‘bad boy’ but he’s actually a GIANT DORK WHO NEEDS ALL THE LOVE)
T’challa (Look, he had so many minutes of screentime in Civil War but we already know he’s a good man and a BAMF)
Bucky Barnes - was never a ‘bad boy’. He’d been a good friend, a good soldier and a good man that HYDRA took and tried to break. They never quite succeeded because they needed a goddamn Steve Rogers lookalike to tell him he was doing the “right” thing.
James T. Kirk, Leonard McCoy and Spock (ToS and the Kelvin Timelines)
If you tell me you can’t write a “good guy” because you think “good guys are boring” then you’re a fucking hack who can’t write for shit.
Included in this preference is: Steve Rogers (Captain America), Tony Stark (Iron Man), T’Challa (Black Panther), Sherlock Holmes, Barry Allen (The Flash), Clark Kent (Superman), Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Castiel.
This whole family seems to have a big problem. I remember Jodi telling the farmer that she regretted to get married too early and she didn’t want to let the farmer make the same mistake. Also Sam mentions sometimes that he asked his mother if she’s really happy with her life but he also said that she hid away some kind of pain. And Kent? He’s been through some shit.
Considering that my life has been taken over by this stupid game, it was inevitable that I would draw something for it.
So, I married Sam in the game and there’s some dialogue that happens with his family, which would be normal if I wasn’t married to him, that just makes me either giggle or face-palm. This particular one just wouldn’t leave me alone until I drew it. There’s a couple more that I could do, but we’ll see if I get around to sketching them out or not. I also have another piece that I really need to finish….
Sorry the file is so small. I didn’t realize that it may be hard to read until I was basically finished….I’ll try to make the file bigger next time if I do something like this again.
