So, whatever happened to Whedon Wednesday? Well, in short it sort of got away from us. Whedon Wednesday is a tribute to the many Joss Whedon characters who have died over the years. A combined effort with Laura, Megg, and Elspeth, Whedon Wednesday is a series of Eulogies morning the loss of these characters who died in fiction. See also: Archive, Introduction.
In light of last week’s tragedy (and yesterday’s post) it seems fitting to end this series today. A goodbye to a series of goodbyes. They will always be alive in our hearts.
The only way out is up. But Penny never wanted out. Penny’s death was a tragedy in two parts. Part one being her unseen impact on the city and the work that Caring Hands was doing here. Part two being the loss of a beautiful, heartfelt soul.
Penny kept to herself. Very few got to know her well, and in light of recent knowledge I am sad to know that she was taken out by a friend. I don’t know why her friend Billy decided to kill Penny. I don’t know what happened for him to become Dr. Horrible, but this knowledge only adds to the questions that we cannot answer.
I don’t know what happened leading up to that day. What I do know is what I’m going to do now. The world is not ending Not yet. And though it may come to be even darker yet, I am proud to say that I will continue to open my hands and my heart to all those who are still in need. She would have wanted it that way.
