[Jyn Erso]’s very determined. She’s strong-willed. She has an independence. But I didn’t want her to become a caricature. It was very important that we found her humanity and her vulnerability, and also that the audience would be with her.
Happy Birthday, Felicity Rose Hadley Jones! (October 17, 1983)
I’ll never forget the devasted expression in my English Language teacher’s face when I was 13 and asked her if she could help me get rid of my accent. She was a glorious, intelligent and tender woman and the first person to openly talk to me about how important it is to value our own culture over hegemomic european and north american influences, and how important it was to cultivate my identity as latina and to be proud of my accent, not ashamed
Ok but I really want Neopolitian to come back in Volume Four.
I could imagine Ruby just kind of walking around in the woods by herself, just lost in thought, and then the camera looks over her shoulder and we just see Neo just standing behind her, their face just completely deadpan. Ruby does that anime thing where she knows someone is behind her and heel turns to face them.
And Neo is just. Standing there. Her parasol isn’t even on her shoulder, it’s just kind of dangling from her hand, the spike digging a little into the dirt. Ruby, not trusting this at all, draws her weapon, but Neo still doesn’t move.
And then, Neo reaches into her pocket and takes out her Scroll before extending it forward for Ruby to take. Ruby, after a moment hesitation, carefully takes it and looks at the screen.
It’s open on a messenger app, and in the typing field is this message:
“He’s dead because of her. I want in.”
And when Ruby looks back up at her, Neo is clearly holding back tears. “You mean Cinder?”

I like the idea of bowing and presenting your SOUL to your fighting/dancing partner as a form of respect before the battle. I imagine Undyne will not bow to respect the human, but presents her SOUL as a challenge in both the Pacifist and Genocide route. Sans on the other hand will not bow nor present his SOUL in the Genocide route.
