Until watching S3E7 (Game, Set and Murder), I didn’t know that back in 1920s, “the Australian Lawn Tennis Association pays for our men to compete all over the world, and women have to pay their own way”. It was probably the case in other countries as well. This particular “gross injustice” no longer widely exists today, if at all, thanks to the fight of many women’s rights pioneers in the past century. That being said, there are still areas where women are not on equal footing with men. To honor International Women’s Day, let’s share Phryne’s passion to rid any kind of inequality in the world.
Every March I would post something to celebrate International Women’s Day, so the theme of my March calendars is naturally along the line. The image to the left will be posted in a few days – “I have many passions, Jack, including women’s rights”. Having passion is one thing, but turning that passion into action requires courage, resolve, and means; all three we know she possesses. Mr. Butler once said “Have you ever known Miss Fisher to do anything she didn’t want to do?” (Image to the right, S2E2 Death Comes Knocking) We know that she also wouldn’t avoid doing something simply because it’s an arduous undertaking or against the conventional wisdom.
Love Norman so much. Heavy Rain was a trip to play the first time (affectionate). Can’t get over the combined hilarity and realism of the scene if you get the Under Arrest path where Norman is flipping out because the local police are literally brutalizing Ethan in interrogation to get him to confess and he tries to intervene and Blake puts a gun in his face so he storms over to the chief’s office and is like “YOUR LIEUTENANT IS TRYING TO BEAT A CONFESSION OUT OF MARS!!!” & the chief goes “ :33 yeah, so? Who cares he’s clearly guilty,” and Norman absolutely loses his mind and goes into his shitty little office and throws a chair because he hates it here so much and the police are fucking insane and terrible and every time he tries to follow the law he gets threatened by them or attacked, & then he calms down & goes “Ok u know what fuck you too I guess >:[ “ and straight up breaks a serial killing prime suspect out of the police station single handed because there’s just no other way to keep him from being beaten to death or false confession in a cell and also he thinks he didn’t do it probably or at least if he did that he’s telling the truth about being not in his right mind & can help, and the whole time poor Mars is so straight up out of it he doesn’t even know what the fucks going on and he’s just like ??? as he’s getting shepherded out fo the station by this fed that just had a fist fight 18 minutes ago with a cop in front of him, and he’s just like *so moved & so confused* “thank you?” & Jayden’s like ‘yeah sure thing; start running & don’t stop’ (I’m gonna lose my job 😬 ) and after that determinately Ethan doesn’t see Norman again once until the finale of the game when he’s one second away from being shot in the back until this same fed who literally busted him out of police lockup comes out of god damn nowhere to body slam the Origami Killer off him and chase them off screaming anyway Heavy Rain’s a fantastic game
