Amelia, yay for Raven! I love the Grey's Anatomy gif you threw in there.

She's been through so much, but I love how her disability isn't really portrayed as a weakness.
She defies her odds time and time again.
Definitely. I love that the show . . . it doesn't just gloss over her disability. It's changed her life and changed her, and it's important to have that represented on TV. But her disability doesn't define her. She has plenty more abilities that make her who she is and make her AWESOME!

Paula, you chose the Octavia hair gifset! I was looking at it the other day. Look at how badass she looks in that first one on the second row!

Of course, your choice of Octavia is truly shocking.

It's awesome that you relate to the character, though. Even though she's quite an extreme character sometimes, when you really boil it down the fundamentals, her struggle to identify with people and figure out who she really is . . . that's something that so many people can relate to. It's important.
