Someone once sent me a message asking me why I liked Diana so much since she was such “a stuck-up bitch” or something along those lines but like okay. Show me. Show me where she is being a stuck-up bitch. Please.

When people say she’s bound to win the relay and she’s all they can talk about, she doesn’t boast or brag about how she’s going to dominate the race. All she says is she’s going to fly as she always does. She’s not showing off or making herself the center of attention. Everyone else is.

And when they say she’s a shoe-in to be the Moonlit Witch, she thanks them, but tells them it’s still too early to tell. She doesn’t say “I know it will be me, I deserve this” or something like that. She acknowledges it very well might NOT be her. She isn’t getting ahead of herself. She isn’t being stuck-up or believing she deserves this just because of who she is.

These were small, brief conversations, but they were two major instances where Diana absolutely could have bragged and boasted about her own greatness. But she showed us an entirely different character. Not a stuck-up bitch. 

There’s a saying that “Character is what you do when no one’s watching” but a teacher of mine once said “I think character is what you do when everyone is watching.” Both can be argued, to some degree (are you going to steal when no one is around? are you going to do the right thing in front of thousands of people?) 

Diana could have shown off to the public in the interview (when everyone was watching), or shown off to Avery and her friend behind-the-scenes (when no one was watching). But she doesn’t do it either time. Both times, she shows that her character is humble, that she knows she isn’t entitled to success. 

She doesn’t want to be handed things on a silver platter. She wants to work towards and earn things just as much as anyone else does. 

if it’s one thing i’m thankful for, is that i haven’t ever really seen too much shitty google translate spanish in cecilos fics. literally i’ve seen this in all my other fandoms, but here in night vale i’ve seen it maybe…once in the four years i’ve been in this fandom??? you go night vale fandom, you’ve done something right for once
