Guest I'm not dead Cheryl Posted May 24, 2012 Posted May 24, 2012 I love Amy Farrah Fowler. Amy Farrah Fowler is not the kind of girl a lot of people want to see on TV. Why? because she is the type of girl most of people just ignores. And it makes me sad to think that. Truth hurts sometimes. And hurt is something Amy has had a great deal of. It hurts to be a lonely person, it hurts to be like Amy. As a kid, she wanted friends, she wanted to be like everyone else. But she wasn't. But she couldn't. And it wasn't her fault. I can imagine how happy she was when she finally "shared the room with a little vietnamese girl" and how devastated she must have been when the girl didn't make it trhough the night. This little girl, was the world to Amy.... 20-something years later, Amy still remembers that night as a happy experience, despite what happenned after. 20-something years later, she still gets excited about being invited to a slumber party. 20-something years later, she still wants to do the "clicky crap" from highschool she never got to do because she didn't have any friends. And she really tried very hard. And she still tries very hard. 20-something years later, and she didn't give up. Because when the heart leads us to want something it never gives up. She can come up a little strong sometimes.. how could she not? she has a heart full of love and never had a single person to give it to. And if she never had anyone to give all that love to, how could she know all the social ways and "appropiate ways" to demonstrate that love? And she loves Penny, and she loves Sheldon... they took her out of her loneliness. Sheldon accepted her right away, just the way she was, without judging her for her ways, or her clothes, or her look. And it was almost surely the first person that did it. She found someone to share her things with, to share her toughts and her passion about science. And he shares his life with her, and he shared his friends with her. And he, inadvertedly, led her to Penny. And she met Penny. And she saw in Penny what she always wanted to be. I think Amy sees Penny as her role model. As someone who is all what Amy always wanted to be but couldn't. And she hangs on to her frienship, in a way some people say "too pathetic", but that I find absolutely endearing, honest and full of happiness. Full of happiness because she finally met someone who would hang out with her. Someone who as "cool" and pretty as Penny is, has a heart of gold, and would never willingly humilliate her. And Amy sees that. And Amy knows it. Because she always had to live her life as an observer, as an outcast, as someone who sits alone in the school's cafeteria and watches the world and analizes it, hoping someday she will understand. And she is a Neurobiologist. And she wants to know how the brain works. And brains work on people. And she wants to know about people. She wants to be one of them. With all her heart. But sometimes, she is still misunderstood, and sometimes, she still tries too hard, and sometimes, she is still ignored and shunned. But she has Penny... and she has Sheldon... And she has a bunch of people who watch her every week. And a lot of those people, finally realized, that Amy Farrah Fowler exists. And that she doesn't deserve to be ignored, and that she doesn't deserved to be shunned, and that she doesn't deserve to be hurt anymore. Is this maybe too sentimental, maybe a little corny? .... sure as hell it is, but I don't care. Thanks Bill, thanks to Chuck, and to the writers that created such a wonderful character. Haters gonna hate, Ipse Venena Bibas I root for Amy Farrah Fowler, PhD. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
