Who is this sassy lost child

"I'm going to be miserable no matter what, Johnny."

Raina clasped her hands in her lap, frowning down at them. "I'm gonna be miserable, because we're here and people aren't going to keep it together, and we all know that. But I'm not going to just sit around and think about how miserable I am, I'm going to do something about it. And to do that, we need to be pragmatic."

She looked back up at Johnny, eyes imploring him to understand, or to at least practice what he'd been preaching just a while ago and let her take the reins. "I'm not saying we'll turn everyone away who we're not best friends with or whatever, but we can't spend our time searching for people or trying to get everyone to hold hands around a campfire and get along or something if they don't want to. You said it yourself: let them go."

Raina looked back down at the bag, where the grenade just barely peeked out. "We need to focus on the big picture. That means deciding who and what we need, not what we want."
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
