That's just another reason why she'd be a Boo, my good sir.

Really, that would work so well as a SMW ROMhack.

(Not sure how the sprites are encoded in SMW, though, and the Boo sprites would be tricky with the long hair...

True. But then how did she get scarred originally?

If Pokemon can be redone with touhous, Mario can be redone with cripple girls.

I'd do it but I don't care enough about Mario to bother. :lol:

I love the interpretation of Pac-Man where he's a just a lowly worker retrieving golf balls left all over the course by the rich masters and the ghosts are all previous workers who got conked on the head and killed by incoming golf balls in the line of duty.

Before she went through a magic warp pipe that transported her to the Mushroom Kingdom and ate a gostly mushroom that transformed her into a Boo? (This sounds like some fanfictiony bullshit, but there is actually a Boo mushroom in Mario Galaxy, for those who don't know.)

Why is the alphabet in Hanako's burn scars? Ruins it...

The word 'AFRAID' is in her burn scars. That's the point of 'I'm so afraid'. It's like a literal representation of idioms like 'I can see it written on your face'.

They say "They don't know" and "I'm so Afraid". I call the "They don't know" bullshit though because of how obvious her fucking scars are.

Maybe it's "They don't know I'm so afraid"? After all, the 'AFRAID' part is not where a casual observer would see it.

Or, it could be "I'm so afraid they don't know," which would be much more interesting to ponder :D.
Rin is orthogonal to everything.

That makes sense, because the burns/scars are on the left hand side of her body, unlike the canon right hand side… :D

The other two pictures, of Lilly, when taken together remind me of Nietzsche: "Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."
