Carl is actually very similar to me. I have Asperger's as well and I have everything he has except I don't get in a fetal position if I am anxious.

Marina's grown in popularity in general lately, but as far as dA goes, I've only submitted two deviantions, and have only noticed a couple of others of noteworthy mention:



Otherwise, Maria gets a lot of attention on dA, and even has her own group dedicated to fan art of her.

Fernando is responsible for about 95% of the Maria stuff on DeviantArt. That which he didn't draw, it's because others were giving away free drawing requests and he took the offer.

And that fan club has been closed. I thought I mentioned that before?

Oh  Fernando is responsible for the stuff on Maria?
The artwork is traced anyway and he is not well liked around the slums, for good reason.
No I did not know about that club being shut down

I honestly think the only way to get Fernardo to stop is if we forget about him entirely. Because if he isn't getting any attention. He would stop.

He will stop if we ignore him? No, this is entirely different than the controversy with Bud's hat. Fernando is obsessed with Maria and there is no way to stop that. You can warn people, but he isn't really doing anything "wrong".

Interestingly, he seems to now like Portia Demwiddy, so maybe he will give up Maria for her?
I really doubt it, but there's a chance...

So the infamous "Maria Speaks" episode finally aired today, and I just knew I had to check this out.

Greg told us this episode was essentially going to be pandering to the base for those Maria fans out there who theorize about why she never talks, and the teaser of this episode almost drives that fact home with a wooden stake through the heart with Arthur's opening monologue basically summarizing, "Maria's always been in our class, but I just realized that she never talks. I wonder why she never talks?" The teaser just screams pandering . . . but somehow, the episode itself didn't seem to come across as such. In fact, in all honesty, it kind of came across as just another one of those Disease of the Week episodes, since Maria has a stutter. Jenna being Maria's best friend seemed like an odd choice, considering I don't recall ever seeing Maria hanging out with Jenna in the background before - she's usually mingling with Alex.

Arthur's remark toward the end of the episode really sold it for me: "Who knew Mr. Ratburn used to stutter?" Indeed, who knew? After all, who knew Brain had emotional issues? Or that Binky had a peanut allergy? Or that Buster used to suck his thumb? Or that Francine was afraid of public speaking? It's not like there's such a thing as an Arthur Affliction, where characters are given certain disabilities, disadvantages, or problems out of the clear blue that they've never exhibited any signs or symptoms of before. What kind of a show would that be?

Come to think of it, if Maria never told anyone she stutters, then how did Ratburn know and hone in on her because of it? I'm sure logically her parents must have said something about it to him at the beginning of the school year, but aside from that, it almost seems to suggest that because he used to stutter as a kid himself (again, who knew?) that he could just sense it in another kid.

Well, now that Maria has finally spoken, I guess all is right with the world now.

I have to say, next to Francine (and perhaps Muffy), Maria is perhaps the one Elwood girl who can really pull off wearing a suit and really work it. Maybe even better than Frankie.

I concur regarding the episode's "Disease of the Week" feel. I suspected it would boil down to something like that, as much as I know we wanted the real reason to be some sort of traumatic incident. I suppose if they'd gone with that, the "overcoming fear" theme might have seemed a bit similar to What Scared Sue Ellen, and if she was just a shy girl with confidence issues, she might have seemed redundant of Fern. It seems like a bit of a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation, regardless of how her character was finally presented to us. All the same, I do think that either of the latter options would have been more fresh and interesting than just another disability.

That said, I can't say I wasn't at least moderately pleased with this episode, if for no other reason than the fact that it was nice to see Maria finally get some characterization and personality. Admittedly, I'm one of those people who just sort of appreciated her in the past for whatever reason, despite her being a total wallflower. Now, we have a more solid idea of her demeanor, friendships, etc. It was also nice to see Jenna back in action with another secondary role. I could see them finding a certain kinship in the fact that they're both of a more demure, unassuming nature.

Plus, "Stutter Bunny" really has a nice ring to it. Maria

Agreed regarding her ability to rock a suit. I think her lankier proportions really make it work well in terms of driving home the professional look, since it creates the illusion of adulthood. The mime costume was a perfect touch, too.
