"Just an ordinary girl, very pretty, very clever… Isn’t that enough?"
Rewatched ‘Hide’ while I was drawing, had to get in a little doodle of the impossible girl. Been thinking about Clara’s role a lot lately, especially the various reads of her being dehumanized or a superwoman. I think Emma’s quote at the end sums it all up quite nicely: can’t she (or any of us) just be an ordinary girl? Still full of drive and humor and brilliance, but not have to push ourselves past fear, past endurance, past physical capability, just to be someone else’s enough?
