there should be a show about a modern girl trying to achieve sainthood/martyrdom i think you'd have a lot of shit to work with there also it would be kind of funny like her peers are at an age where theyre obsessing over boys while shes obsessing over how her chances of being burned at the cross is getting thinner and thinner and how hard being canonized will be in this age of late stage capitalism where she'll sin regardless of intent and also since at a young age shes harbored an intense fixation over female saints not because of any underlying reasons it's totally not because she's a lesbian and also one time in 4th grade during recess she tried to incite her classmates to stone her to death and she likes to go hunting for angels and once she tried to rob a medieval grave under the belief that her holy weapon was hidden deep there. she's such a silly little girl
