"I..."

Great. This was just fucking great. Way to put her between a rock and a hard place. Raina knew that this was the kind of question she had to consider carefully; she couldn't contradict the plan of nonviolence they had been espousing, and of course wouldn't just stand there and do nothing so she couldn't say that (even though she had abandoned Jasper and Audrey, a voice in the back of her mind rudely reminded her before she quashed it). She couldn't just say she didn't know, or she would be as much of a wild card as Penelope and they needed stability right now.

"Well..." She forced a smile. Worth a shot. "I'd beat them up with my huge, bulging muscles, of course. You know I wouldn't let someone just run around hurting my friends." If Johnny had ever had a halfway intelligent thought in his life, it would be that he ought to keep his mouth shut about the encounter in the therapy rooms too. "I'd... yeah, I'd incapacitate them and... tie them up or something. Take them out of the picture until we have a better way to deal with things."

She crouched down near Penelope, hand still resting on her shoulder. "You trust me, right? So trust that I wouldn't let someone get away with it - but we can still figure out a way to make sure as few people get seriously hurt as possible."
"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."
