    These are awesome, but they forgot Scully’s cross necklace.

    It doesn’t really scream skepticism, though, does it?

    My hero.

    Maybe doesn’t scream it, but her cross necklace is symbolic of her complicated relationship with both faith and skepticism.

    I’d like to see her as “Our Lady of Motherhood” because that’s the kind of characterization of motherhood I can get behind. Messy, biological, terrifying, heroic, badass, and something we’re grateful for but wouldn’t presume to expect from everyone.

    Scully doesn’t really scream skepticism either, so much as belligerent myopia (at least in the early seasons.)

    Love the art style, but those marks in the middle of their noses look odd.

    Starbuck over Laura Roslin? Seriously? Like Ripley in Alien, Kara Thrace was originally a male character, if you recall. And in the end…well, she wasn’t exactly a paragon of self-determination, was she? What, were you afraid of having two bespectacled brunettes in the canon?
