Day 11: Favorite Teenager: Wendy
Dear freaking God do I love this girl, not just as a character, but a person.
She’s cool, she’s laid back, she’s just…awesome! Wendy is a character that feels executed in all the right ways: She’s a big sister to the Pine Twins, an awesome person to hang with when it comes to her friends, a sweet girlfriend to Robbie, and even if her work ethics are…questionable, she hasn’t quit the Shack yet (I like to think she kind of chose it by convenience but does sort of have a soft spot for the place). Not to mention, she’s a female character with personality, she’s not just “the girlfriend” for Robbie, or a crush for Dipper to fret over, she’s her own person with flaws and perks. I love that she’s also not introduced as “Robbie’s Girlfriend” in the beginning, which I honestly thought was the route they’d go in episode 5 when he was brought in, they got together over time and he wasn’t just “the guy” he was honestly sweet to her in putting the snowcone on her eye (because it’s a sweet gesture that’s flawed). She honestly feels like a person I’d want to be friends with and hang out with and I’m really hoping that she can have a larger role as the series goes on, because this is a great character that Alex and the team have created and I hope that many creators follow in his footsteps when it comes to making female characters, not as “just girls” but people.
