ideas are like oxygen: a journal by Carrie Vaughn
Can someone explain to me why Ramona ever agreed to go out with Scott? And keep going out with him?
It was the bass line. It spoke to her heart.
And sometimes girls over do the “but he is a nice guy” mindset after dating too many bad boys.
He was charming. At least, he was in the comic books. Why she would choose to go out with Michael Cera-as-Scott Pilgrim, I have absolutely no idea.
It was written by a boy. I still couldn’t figure out the attraction even from the comic books.
Judging from her romantic history, she seems to just go out with every boy who shows attraction to her that she is even slightly interested in. He’s also kind of a rebound for her, I guess. And he does end up helping her work through her baggage.
Because if she didn’t, then there wouldn’t be much of a plot.
Go Faith Go!
I haven’ seen the film yet, but I have heard that one interpretation is that it’s all/mainly happening in Scott’s head.
So the answer would be, because he wants her to!
Nerdy wish-fulfillment, I would say. Given that I am a married man, it MUST happen at least occasionally in real life 😛
But what seems like wish fulfillment for Scott seems like punishment for Ramona…
The “it’s all in his head” interpretation makes quite a bit of sense.
I’ve sorted a ton of this comic at Amazon, so I guess people are buying it. I don’t really know anything about it.
I just read a synopsis, and all I can think of is how I’ve been told that there is a segment of the female population obsessed with “fixer uppers.”

That trick never works!
