This really doesn't make much sense outside of the context of the last comic. Or without being able
to make the correct assumptions I suppose. |
As you may have gathered, Jenny seems to have her sword whenever she needs it, regardless of the situation. How that works is not really the subject of this. But needless to say, when she has it, you can be pretty well assured that you, in fact, do not. This is somewhat to Bob's disadvantage here, but that doesn't bother me much, and in fact bothers me far less than a dead purple bunny Jenny would.
There's an important thing I need to remember while I write this character. She's innocent, and to a degree ignorant about this world. But that doesn't mean she's stupid. It's tempting to start writing for her as if she had absolutely no comprehention of anything, and give her lots of little quirks in her speach which end up making her sound like she can't even grasp the idea of proper english.
But this makes PBJ seem like she's happy all the time because she's mentally incapable really. It's an idea that you canonly be really that happy all the time if you're too stupid not to be otherwise. Ursula K. LeGuin actually states this entire matter best as part of her short story "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" which I came across somewhere in the middle of this series. To quote that bit
The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid, Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting.
