Hi, welcome to the Metal Gear Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Liquid Ocelot page.
Redoing personality sections. Edit
I noticed you redid the personality sections of Paz and The Boss recently. Assuming you're going to do this on a regular basis, can you look into and if necessary rewrite the personality sections for Strangelove, Miller, and possibly Cecile (assuming of course they even need rewrites. I can't tell)? Weedle McHairybug (talk) 00:10, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
- Sure! I can't promise a full revision as fast as what I did for The Boss and Paz just yet (they're a bit easier since the games really get into what they were thinking), but I'll definitely give it a shot as I've recently been re-playing Peace Walker. I'll probably have a look at Strangelove first as it should be easy enough I think (I'll admit, she actually ended up being one of my favorite characters from PW). Afterwards I'll take a look at Cecile and Miller's personality sections. DementedP (talk) 15:51, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks, as again, I have little concept on how to tell whether something's good or not regarding writing. Also, I don't know if Cecile's comment about her being "no different than any other Parisian women" was supposed to be hyperbole or not, and I get really paranoid in the negative sense with her implication that French women, to put it bluntly, effectively became harlots as a result of May 1968 (and by that, I mean old women, young women, maybe even little girls as well. Whenever I hear that type of phrase, I immediately go by the raw mathematical numbers). I spent a lot of time tracking down French women and trying to ask them just to determine whether Cecile was accurate or exaggerating. I'm not French, I have little experience with France, and I don't even have any French heritage in me (the closest to actual French heritage may be some Canadian blood in me, and even then, I'm not sure if its French Canadian or British Canadian). That's one thing that the personality section might need to address (though then again, it may not be one in your view). Weedle McHairybug (talk) 16:02, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
Strangelove's sexuality Edit
The reason I listed her as bisexual is precisely because of her interaction with Huey in the ending. Whenever I think of homosexuals and their interactions with the opposite sex, I generally think to how General Blue behaved regarding Bulma and Arale Norimaki in Dragon Ball (ie, making it very clear he has zero attraction to them, almost similar to a kid fearing cooties in a way, and not even willing to give them even one shot). Maybe I'm wrong, but that's pretty much what I've got. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 17:45, April 19, 2014 (UTC)
- Hey it's perfectly fine! I don't mean any offense by removing it mind you so I apologize if it came across as me shutting you down or anything like that. Rather, it's just I've saved up her Briefing Files and listening to them a couple of times she makes a lot of claims that her attraction and general attitude/conduct is attributed to her homosexuality. That said, the reason I said it's technically more accurate that her mentality is pansexual is because she makes a statement about how the notion of males and females shouldn't matter at all (which also makes sense in context of her not really minding Huey by making romantic/sexual gestures despite her very strong claims against liking men). If anything, it's more accurate to say that her sexual orientation is homosexual while her mentality and views are very pansexual, given a lot of stuff she says in regards humans/AIs as well as the way she acts. That said, without much info to go by beyond her giving Huey that romantic gesture, I remained with calling her homosexual since she strongly talks about it and acts on this a number of occassions (The Boss, Paz, and Cecile especially, she even makes a lot of positive remarks towards femininity over masculinity and how the former is superior than the latter). I should say though, if MGSV ever mentions her getting married with Huey I'll be sure to modify the info there (instead I'll mention how her homosexuality is self-proclaimed). Until then I think what's written now about her sexual orientation should suffice.
The Skullface/Paz/Chico thing Edit
If we do continue the conversation, I hope I don't offend you, or make you think I'm stepping on your toes or anything. I thought I'd throw in my two cents. Have a nice day :D (talk) 04:47, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
- No it's totally fine! If anything, I'm really just trying to go for the most accurate or likely scenario based on what I can hear from the tapes, so if enough people believe otherwise then that's obviously the consensus. I'm all for changing it if people really disagree and present enough plausible evidence for it. --DementedP (talk) 04:53, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
