Can i ask what the thing with Nightingales shoes in the comic (?) is about?
It wasn’t Nightingale’s shoes at all!
Back before Body Work had come out, the first page or so was released without dialogue, and it showed Guleed and Stephanopoulos standing on the bank of the Thames watching a car getting lifted out of the water…wearing open-topped kitten heels. The tiny fandom TOOK UMBRAGE at this, because while Guleed very well might wear that style of shoe she wouldn’t to a crime scene, and Stephanopoulos wouldn’t, period. It was pretty clearly a guy going “and now I will draw these female characters in Girl Shoes”. By the time the comic actually came out it had been changed. Sensible footwear for the win.
We don’t know for a fact it was because we were bitching about it on Tumblr, but Lee Sullivan (I think it was?) definitely said something in an interview about complaints on the Internet, so we’ll take the credit. *g* (I can’t do links to the original discussions/caps right now because I’m on mobile, but I’ll add them later.)
