Let's talk about chicks, man: Velma Dace Dinkley
Orange being my LEAST favorite color of the spectrum, it's hard to fathom I would have such a crush on this character who is smothered in it. She doesn't always have the best lines, but she's always the one who usually solves the mystery. I guess that's where the attraction comes from. Just like Donatello from TMNT. Not to say I have a crush on him, but he was always my favorite turtle because he was the brains of the operation. I just thought there was just something incredibly sexy growing up about her. Yeah, I'm weird, but we all know that.
Little known fact about her, Scooby is actually HER dog. I can't remember where I read that, but I remember reading it a few years ago and was somewhat astonished thinking he was always Shaggy's pooch.
It has been long rumored that she is fact a lesbian. I can see why people would think so. It was hinted about the sexual tension between Daphne and Freddie, and Shaggy and Scooby were just potheads, so they weren't interested in sex as much as hallucinating and scoring free meals. Hanna-Barbara has denied this and actually gave her a love interest in the live-action sequel with the oh-so hot Linda Cardelini as Ms. Dinkley. I don't think she's gay at all. I just think she's just strictly business about solving mysteries and a bit tomboyish, but definitely not gay.
This picture sums it up quite well, actually. She epitomizes the type of girl I'm attracted to. I mean, if you have seen my girlfriend you'd know what I'm talking about. Between the cheerleaders and the bookwork, I like my girls brainy. It just sucks she's the butt of the glasses joke ("I can't see without my glasses"). We get it, you're hella nearsighted, but damn, orange knee socks and a sweater never looked so good.
Point made. Next time, I'll cover DC's Mistress of Magic: Zatanna Zatara!
