while remaking my old shit icons that were too big – ( idk what I was thinking back then ) – this one reminded me of the one scene where Nadia, Bower, Leland and the nameless Vietnamese guy encountered one of the mutants who happened to look like a child. when the Vietnamese guy was about to attack it, Nadia immediately stopped him and shouted at him that it was only a child. it pretty much proved that Nadia most definitely does has a maternal side. honestly if she had a child of her own, she’d probably be nervous & awkward at first, not knowing what to do – but she’d be a natural at it anyway.

though if it was someone else’s child, she’d probably be still as awkward and tries to avoid; but it wouldn’t be because she dislikes children. she just doesn’t know how to handle them, let alone what to say to them & act.
