Transcriptions and the little girl

Postby CodeGuy on Sun Jul 16, 2006 10:34 am

I think most of us haven't entered transcriptions for the recent comics yet because we don't know the name of the little girl. However, we're not *supposed* to know her name yet, and the people who read through the archives in the future shouldn't either.

Should the transcriptions call her something like "Little Girl" until her name is revealed?

I'd say that works pretty will.

'She Who Must Not Yet Be Named' is also accurate, but probally harder to work with.

I think it's better to wait till the name is known and use that, so you can actually look up when she first appears as a little girl. (I'd hazard to guess it's Portia, anyway; otherwise how can she flash back to a scene she's not in? But I'm waiting for confirmation from the strip.)

Although I suppose, when it comes down to it, Gav might always change it to what he thinks is appropriate when he clears the transcriptions.

That was my reading of it -- after all Cindy Lee is telling Portia's story.
I read several webcomics.

Yeah, "Little Girl" is fine for now.
