SHCC Break

Just letting everyone know we are still alive! The core group of SHCC contributors/creators are students, so finals week is upon us and making us severely bogged down with work. As soon as this week is over we'll be finalizing the theme and subject for the final post of the month of December! See you then!

Scarlet Witch in Literature

I was sad to see the lack of submissions this round--but still liking the results! If anyone would like to have more suggestions for who to do next/themes to do, please post them in the comments!

Joel Priddy's Scarlet Witch:

Juan Antonio Rodrÿffffedguez Armas' Scarlet Witch:

Urganda la Desconocida (Urganda the Unknown or Unrecognized) a character of Amadis of Gaul, the most important Spanish chivalric romance. She is a sorceress with magical powers and a talent for prophecy who favour knight errant Amadis de Gaula Also is appeared in Don Quixote as secondary character.

She was a witch and her name sound like the name of Scarlett Witch, (I know it´s a terrible joke)

Whitney Hubbard's Scarlet Witch:

I went with Medea as my literary inspiration. I picked the character Medea because both she and the Scarlet Witch had these really tragic stories involving their children being killed. Medea actually killed her own children as revenge against her husband Jason, and depending on the verison of the story you read, she may or may not have fed them to Jason too. Which is disgusting.

Alex Getts' Scarlet Witch:

The first thing I thought of when I read the "literature" theme was Breakfast at Tiffany's. Of course, I think the film is more well-known than the novella, so I used Audrey Hepburn as my template when redesigning the Scarlet Witch as a Holly Golightly-esque figure, switching the trademark black for the Witch's signature color.

The next hero and theme will be announced sometime tomorrow or Tuesday, December 6th or 7th. We will still be accepting Scarlet Witches whenever you are finished with them, so send them to whenever possible, and don't forget to post suggestions in the comments!
