Anyway, since I got the plotbunny about Az after they get rid of the witch, I've been thinking a lot about how that would affect her psychologically. My theory is that she'll have the mentality of a severely traumatized child, having not aged much mentally since the witch possessed her. There's also a possibility that she would use her childlike mentality as a coping mechanism to deal with her severe trauma. I'll have to do some research on psychological disorders, I have an idea of the one I want to use, but I have no idea what it's called. Or anything about it that wasn't mentioned in that episode of Law & Order SVU. So these thoughts about what psychological state Az would be in spawned thoughts about what psychological state Glitch would be in. Now, I'm pretty sure that, magic or no, after such a long seperation from his brain, he's not going to go back to just being Ambrose. I mean, he's developed this whole other personality as Glitch, once you put his brain/half brain (which half of the brain? how does that work, anyway? and is it the whole brain or just half of it?) back in, he's not going to go back to being the perfectly sane Ambrose. My theory's on this are:
- He could end up with a sort of multiple personality thing, with Ambrose and Glitch remaining as two separate personalities. From what I can tell, this seems to be a pretty popular theory.
- He could end up with most of his memories, but be even more forgetful then before, possibly even losing certain motor functions.
- He could end up with a sort of Alzheimer like condition.
- It could be that putting his brain back in would do much more harm than good, thus causing them to opt out of the surgery.
Also, what's with the Raw neglect, fandom? Not cool. Raw is awesome, and there's so much to explore, so much to think about, so much left unsaid. Actually, that's probably the cause of the neglect- he was pretty sorely neglected in canon, leaving us with very little to work with. Darn. Oh well. And now for an updated Tin Man ship list:
- Ambrose/the Queen
- The Witch/Az
Wow, I made it through the entire post without referencing Doctor Who, Torchwood, or SJA. *scrolls up* Wait...darn.
