My post-referendum comic. This was going to be part of a slightly longer story, but in the end I only really needed these 3 panels to express how I feel at the moment. 
I took my Yes signs down quite early, in a moment of despair, and I instantly regretted it. However I don’t think I could ever bring myself to throw them away, they’ll be going in my safekeeping box. It’s the box I use to store old photographs, hand-made birthday cards from friends, that kind of thing. Things that mean a lot to me. They’re also things I know I’ll want to revisit in the future. This isn’t the end of the line for Scottish independence. 
If you want to see my (far more optimistic) pre-referendum comic, go here.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

Scotland Let’s Talk presents a three-part series of short films designed to illustrate that Scotland is Big Enough, Rich Enough, Smart Enough, and above all, Ready to be an independent country. More than that - Scotland needs to be independent.

Don’t let them tell us we can’t or we shouldn’t - we can, we should and we must.

This accessible and informative series of films will hopefully persuade you that Scottish Independence is the opportunity of a lifetime, and one that may never come again. Scotland has so much going for it, and we should govern ourselves, just like any other country.

The prize is a better, fairer place to live. Let’s be the generation that says ‘Yes’.
