For any of you who have never seen Wonderfalls
go out and rent it now, dammit
, this is Jaye: She's your typical Brown University philosophy grad who would rather live in a trailer that looks like the inside of Genie's bottle and work retail than do anything meaningful with her life. And inanimate animals, like the wax lion or a monkey bookend or a stuffed donkey tell her to do things. If she doesn't, it doesn't go too well for her. I'm playing Jaye the same way, only as a teenager, and so far she's only talked to her purse a few times and nothing's really come out of it.
Except today I went and got her a paid account, so now the animals will be talking to her and you will be able to read what they're saying. I'm figuring out plans for homecoming and parents' weekend, and I might need help with it. Like if you need to meet that cute boy in class and you need Jaye to slap him and her to get detention so you can nurse him to health and make him fall in love with you? Talk to me. The poor girl is not allowed to have shame, she will do just about anything. And it gives her a deep end to go off of.
Basically, I'm talking a cue from the whole Six thing. If you see one of the animals in an icon, they're talking to Jaye. She's the only one that can interact with them. If she's waving the wax lion around, you can ask why she's waving a wax lion, but you can't hear what it's telling her. I did a bit of practice
So. Just an FYI.
