Transcript: How Molly uses appearance to assess people, Talks Machina C2 Ep 6 0:20:50

Taliesin chose to play a tiefling because he “wanted a comfortable outsider.” (TM 2018-01-16 0:34:49) Tieflings are already visibly, inescapably marked by their infernal heritage. In Western society, tattoos and piercings (especially lots of them) have long been regarded as outside polite society. Molly’s body modification signals that he’s leaning into outsider status and a … Continue reading Transcript: How Molly uses appearance to assess people, Talks Machina C2 Ep 6 0:20:50

Use Molly’s correct pronouns, part 2

I haven’t yet alienated all of Tumblr, so let me elaborate on why it’s bothering me so much that people are misusing Molly’s pronouns in fics. It’s not a couple people here and there that are exploring Molly using they/them pronouns. It’s nearly every single nonbinary Molly fic in 5 months. There’s one that uses … Continue reading Use Molly’s correct pronouns, part 2

AskBox: Taliesin gave us all of Molly’s pronouns, and it was one set

In response to: Use Molly’s correct pronouns As an enby myself: What Taliesin actually said about Molly was "he uses he/him but is cool with anything". Nonbinary people who use multiple sets of pronouns are perfectly valid and fine, you know? I go by both they and she.

Transcript: Taliesin gives Molly’s pronouns, Talks Machina for C2 Ep 01 0:06:07

I’m profoundly over seeing this misquoted, so here is what Taliesin specifically said about Molly’s pronouns. He said “he” without hesitation, other pronouns, or qualification. He shrugs off Molly taking no offense at anything because he’s very chill. Just because he’s not offended by it in passing doesn’t mean another answer is right. The subtext … Continue reading Transcript: Taliesin gives Molly’s pronouns, Talks Machina for C2 Ep 01 0:06:07

This post is part 1 in a 7-part series examining everything we learned about Molly’s backstory in Critical Role Campaign 2 Episode 014.
