Did anyone else just LOVE this show when they were a kid? I was so excited to find it on Netflix a few years back. I love mermaids, and so this show really did it for me. I think Cleo was my favourite character when I was a kid, but now that I’m older I find I really enjoy Rikki’s character.
The prompt for today was Full Moon Folies, and I knew I didn’t really want to do werewolves, (because probably most people would do werewolves) but that these girls would be a fantastic pick instead.
modern au where jeyne and theon end up becoming unlikely friends and every so often when one or both of them are feeling down they get together for movie night and stupid selfies and delivery pizza and hot chocolate, because okay their lives aren’t perfect but they deserve some fucking happiness
“Good. Cause if we’re stuck here for more than a few days, and you’re a detriment to the group, then we’d have a problem.”
I think this has to be one of my favorite Carley scenes, if not my favorite.
People don’t really talk about this scene beyond the fact that it’s there for exposition (and for the player to have a reason to not save her at the end of the episode), but this scene really shows just how brave Carley is.
She came into that office with the intent to confront Lee, someone who she knew was a convicted killer who was obviously taller and stronger than her. She went in there and not only confronted him about his past, but throughout the entire conversation with him, she kept things on her terms. She never let Lee take over the conversation and let him know that she was watching him and would not hesitate to reveal his secret if he started causing problems.
People say that this was kind of stupid of her, to let Lee know that she was onto him. But unlike the way Larry did it, Carley spoke to Lee in a way that was both stern yet calming. She appeared nicer and less bias but still showed authority and unlike Larry, gave him more of a chance to redeem himself. There’s also the fact that she was unsure and nervous herself about trusting Lee, she even says it “look, don’t make me wrong on this”.
Even though I like what she says if you thank her, I think I like this scene best when Lee doesn’t go along with her. If you choose to have Lee ask how he can trust her, Carley will reply that he can’t trust her but that he doesn’t have many other options. I just really love that because she’s keeping in control and letting Lee know that she’s the one in control and that she’s the one whose trust needs to be gain, not the other way around.
Carley did this and knowingly put herself out there in order to keep the group safe because she wants to protect everyone, just like the way she tries to protect everyone for the rest of the game in her own way, regardless of what anyone tells her to do.
