Ten minutes into the deep dive into why The Baronies are Like That™ and I forgot that Brennan said that was the Small Thing Penny got in her investigation check—
“And oh yeah sort of off in the corner wrapped up in a piece of cured leather is the Legendarium Extrordia.”
I fucking LOVE a delivery of A Big Consequence in a very casual manner

I really love how Sam is allowed to be angry in the game, like she’s a trans woman who use she was an actor/model/something in showbiz before she realized she was a girl, and then got kicked out by her mom when she found out. She lives with her best friend and has for probably a number of year, only for said best friend to betray her, and put her in a crystal so she would be a sacrifice to a dragon so Penelope could be freakin prom queen. And she still lives in the house with the family of her dead ex-bestfriend, only to find out that Penelope’s dad is cheating on her mom, who is her mom in all but blood, and is kicking the mom out of the house. Not to mention her shitty birth mother is trying to get back in the picture now that being trans/having a trans kid is seen as trendy and trying to pretend like nothing is wrong and their brand can still be salvaged.
Yet she is still incredibly sweet and kind, yeah she worries about her situation, but they’re natural worries and she doesn’t put her own situation above anyone elses who is in a bad way. She is terrified about being left alone in the house where Penelope’s (so far not literal) ghost still haunts, but she still goes out of her way to make sure Rebecca is alright. She compliments her, says her ass is better than the woman’s who her husband is cheating on her with, offers to help burn all of Mister Everpetal’s stuff and send it to him, she calls Rebecca her mom.
In turn when she goes on an angry tangent about wanting to beat her mother’s skull in, she says she might have anger problems, but Rebecca just waves it off. She tells her that she’d be more worried about Sam if she didn’t have anger issues. When she’s talking to Zelda about the situation in the house, she talks about how she wish she could rage like Zelda, Zelda says she’s seen her close, but in a solidarity way.
It’s just really refreshing to see as a trans woman, that there’s this powerful, beautiful, trans woman in this show, and she’s allowed to be pissed, she’s allowed be filled with a righteous fury because there’s a lot of shitty things going on in her life and her mom and friends never try to stifle it. they tell her that she deserves to be angry and no one gets to tell her not to and that they’ll be there for her when she is to make sure she also knows she’s loved.
