■ kirrosie for ts
■ i'm sorry i just love rosie around other people's bosses
"kirrlova is a shitty last name for me," rosie says between mimosa sips. "it doesn’t work with what else i have"
"you never told me your real name." but oleg’s ears prick up for it
"well it’s shit," rosie answers. "eat your breakfast"
[Doyle leans over the back of her stupid huge chair once or twice, arms dangling over the sides like an overripe tomato that’s about to fall and ruin your day. “You should just change his last name to McLargehuge. It will solve every single one of your problems.”]
"the kirrlovs are a proud family," oleg grumbles. "my father would be ashamed”
rosie picks up her fork. “your father’s dead, old man”

|disregarding the ending in relation to SR4, what choice did Rosie make at the end of SR3? did she go after Killbane with Angel or after Shaundi and Viola? How did she feel about the decision during and afterward?||◤||
Save Shaundi, 100%. You can regroup and hunt down your enemies later. You can’t bring back your friends.
After all of it was over she let Angel go, with a blessing and the Three Count and a briefcase full of money. Killbane was always his score to settle anyway. The money would take him as far as wherever Killbane had gone, plus a little nest egg for after the bastard was dead.
Rosie’d gotten awfully fond of Viola, though. Hard not to respect a woman who’d made it that far in the underworld. She and Oleg were the two from Steelport that Rosie kept in her inner circle - Viola to manage the finances of the Saints’ corporate enterprise, Oleg as intelligence officer and her personal bodyguard.
[Well, that last part didn’t come until later, of course. They had to stop looking daggers at each other first.]
|How did Rosie take Carlos' death and did she think Jessica's demise was fitting for revenge?||◤||
see, unlike the Ronin, Rosie just does not have the time of day for the Brotherhood. Doesn’t like anything about them. They’re rowdy. They’re not businesslike. They’re taking her arms trade, and they don’t know the first thing about tattoos and respect.
[Tattoos are a sticking point for her. You’ll never talk her down from it.]
Carlos made the whole thing worse, because Rosie could tell from the beginning that he wasn’t cut out. It may be one of the old tenets to teach the life to talented youth, but Rosie led him only far enough to keep him satisfied, and gave him every opportunity she could to get out. She knew she’d lose him. The question was whether he’d wise up and leave, or die.
And, well, we saw what happened.
And Rosie was hard on herself about it. If she’d pushed him harder, she thought. If she’d talked to him more. Convinced him to go back to small time, and get married, or something.
She knew Red Asphalt had to be Jessica’s idea, and she knew she’d get even for it. [This was different from what the Ronin would end up doing to Aisha. It really was between her and Jessica, not Jessica as a route to Maero.] And while she would’ve liked to do something with more privacy and finesse than the demo derby job… well, that was the chance she got. Sometimes you plan and execute. Sometimes you make do.
|Just thought I'd let you know that I love everything you do, even if you're embarrassed of it. You're a wonderful artist and writer, and your hypothetical MLP boob tattoo doesn't make me think you're lame, it makes me admire how brave you are to put the worlds in your head out in the open. You're super talented and amazing and I love the things you do! :)||◤||
well that’s damned decent of you, anon, thanks
|How did Rosie deal with Aisha's death?||◤||
sadly but with distance
Rosie spent a lot of SR1 just trying to understand what was going on, and she didn’t get to know Aisha well. She seemed like a nice enough woman, but Rosie couldn’t get a handle on her and Johnny’s relationship.
When she later saw they were a couple, she didn’t mind. Maybe Aisha would be a force against the entropy in his life. And by that time Aisha’d become less scared of her, and they’d talked. It was all right.
But most of all, when the Ronin killed her, Rosie found it really unsportsmanlike. If you have a problem with a man, you settle it with the man himself. You don’t kill someone innocent to get to him. It’s messy. It’s strategically unsound. It’s the mark of a bunch of thugs, not a grown-up gang, and Rosie had given the Ronin a measure of respect.
What Johnny did to Shogo at the funeral, though? That was 100% Rosie’s style. Very old country. The right thing to do. It would send a good message, she told him. And he could put his anger to rest.

i told my mother about the russian gecko space experiment and she came up with this whole story like “what if they hadn’t restored contact and the geckos landed on a planet with extraterrestrial life. what if the aliens found the capsule and it was their first contact with earth, except they thought the geckos were humankind. they thought geckos were the architects of earth civilization and couldn’t figure out why they displayed no signs of higher intelligence”
|Your Saints Row stuff makes me wish that Volition would hire you on as a writer.||◤||
i’m gonna be straight with you, I usually try to deflect this stuff because of an overripe impostor syndrome that gets in the way of everything, but this is a nice compliment, dude. this made my day.
