the next animatic im doing is ‘Say No to This’ and doing it out of spite cause I’m pretty tired of seeing bad comments about Maria Reynolds on my youtube channel and I’m gonna make her sympathetic as fuck
Maria was abused, physically and sexually, was protecting her child from her father, forced to be apart of James’ plot to blackmail Hamilton and found solace in someone who felt some of her pains
THAT HAPPENED TO ME LAST WEEK AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so soothing omg normally i’m so hectic and ??? in the grocery store but having Niall playing made me chill out so much and i was so relaxed by the end of my shopping rofl he should be the mandatory soundtrack to keep everyone calm
IT MADE ME SO HAPPY!!! I was there with my sisters and I was on my phone and a new song started playing and I was like !!!!!!!! THAT’S MY BABY!!!!!!! and i was singing and dancing like an idiot but i didn’t even care because I was so happy!!!!!!
But real talk, Noodle’s character development hit its peak when she “died”, and that’s sad as fuck. It’s like every time something cool could be done with her, ol’ boy’s like “Hmm… How about instead of doing something actually interesting, I make her even more boring? Yes, I’m a genius!”
This woman is a former child soldier, a deep thinker, a big feminist, apparently some sort of engineer now (?), a racer, travels through the postal service, extremely physically strong, a demon-slayer, enriched in her culture, and a musical mastermind, but even with all those super intriguing things about her, they’re handled in such a way that I can barely bring myself to give a shit. It’s like, she does all those amazing things, but she has no personality anymore. She’s just a husk carrying out these amazing feats, not a person.
But! I have really high hopes for her this phase. I truly believe she’s going to be great this time around. I’m anxious, but also really excited.
