There’ve been a handful of Thomas Edison questions submitted every month since her debut, but I’ve usually had one reason or another to go with other questions each time. I decided to go ahead and answer this one, though, just because I really wanted to draw her again. This Ask is pretty similar to the Hatsume/Entrapta Ask, even down to the posing, but with Thomas and Reagan instead. I paired her with Reagan just because she’s also a character I’d like to do more with who fits into the inventor category.
So, I admit, I didn’t really know exactly what to make of this Ask. I really like Reagan, though, so I decided to take it on anyway. While I’m not entirely sure what the question is getting at, I figured since a big part of Reagan’s character is being a lonely workaholic I’d just show her riding a sci-fi-looking dildo.
Edit: So I later found out that this Ask is actually meant to reference a scene in the first episode where she shouts, “Suck my dick!” I do vaguely remember this scene, but I didn’t ascribe any particular importance or weight to it, as it’s just a thing people say. I’m perfectly happy with her answer here, as I think understanding the question probably would’ve made me less likely to pick it for a response.
So, let me provide some context for this pic, for anyone who hasn’t seen Inside Job. Reagan works for a clandestine company that runs the shadow government, and hates her dad. In one episode, she’s tasked with handling a problem with a secret settlement on the moon, lead by an ageless Buzz Aldrin. She ends up under the impression that he might be her real father, and when she’s trying to tell him this he makes a pass at her. When she shoves him away, he says something like, “What, I thought you were going to say moon slut!” So this is an alternate outcome from that scene.
I dunno why, but I really liked the idea of Reagan just earnestly saying, “Buzz, I think I might be your… moon slut…” So, as out of character as this pic is, I had a lot of fun drawing it. I really like Reagan, and I’d like to do more with her eventually.
