---------------
Bob: "And, Miriam, I don't wanna hear another word about--"
Miriam: (turns) "O--Olga!!"
Bob: (turns also, annoyed) "What?"

(they see her)
Olga: "..."

Miriam: (wiping tears away) "Oh, H-Hi, honey, we... we didn't see you there."
Bob: (scratches behind head) "Oh, geez, um...hey, Olga."
Miriam: (walks up to her) "What have you got there, sweetie?"

Olga: (gives her the paper) "... Um... I got my test back... our spelling tests."

Miriam: (she gasps) "Ohhh, 'A-plus'...!!! Amaazing!"
Bob: (gets the paper) "That's great, Olga!"
"Hagh, barely out of diapers and already scoring the big one."

Miriam: (happy) "A 'natural talent'." (Olga smiles)
Bob: "Perrrfecto!"

Bob: (looking to Miriam) "She got it from *my* side of the family, of course." (Miriam narrows her eyes a bit.) "Hahahaha! Our bloodline goes generations back to whole mess of great spellers!"

Miriam: "Ah, well, you must be forgetting about *my* family bloodline, B. Haha..."
[Bob (under his breath): 'Huh, they're easy to forget...']
Miriam: (incredulous) "Ahem...! I.. I beg your pardon, B...??"
Olga: "Maybe--" (They both look to Olga)

Olga: (smiles) "Maybe I got it... from both of your families?"

Both: (They pause)...
Bob: (rubs behind neck, looking to Miriam) "Hmm, well, I guess so......maybe."
Miriam: "Of *course* she's right! After all, Olga is a *genius*~!" (She hugs Olga)
Bob: (smiles smugly, with half-lidded eyes) "Hmph, yeah, I guess you're right."

Miriam: "Let's go put this up right here in this room!"
Bob: (runs off) "I'll get some tape, Miriam."

-(Later on)...-

(Olga looks at her A+ paper on the wall with her parents who are smiling happily. Around the paper are stationaries and decorations that say 'Our perfect Daughter'.)

Olga: (thinks, reading) ' Perfect '...... (She gets a determined, solemn expression on her face)...
(Her small, cherub-like hands unconsciously tighten)

(I guess this would be a flashback during "The Pataki's".)
A 'Hey Arnold!' fanart of course ;) :)

Unconsciously inspired by 'Mighty Falcon' (aka: ~sketchpride) from the AE boards at: [link]
Hey Arnold! was created by the awesome Craig Bartlett of course~ ;D :) :D

This would be a great origin in an "Olga on the Couch" episode of "The Patakis." Olga strives to overachieve feeling she's the only thing keeping her parents from fighting... that kind of adds a whole new layer of tragedy.

This is utterly brilliant! I LOVE that you've explored this side of Hey Arnold! Not many people delve deeper into the Patakis than the surface and that explanation totally works! Ogla is actually one of my favorite characters in HA and it makes me happy to see her story be told so thank you! :)

My one and only critique would be that the lining of the background is a tad squiggly around the staircase, which could easily be fixed with a ruler and a black pen or sharpie. But, other than that, it's perfect! :)

Poor Olga:( Helga wasn;t the only one effected by their parents dysfunction, while Helga was neglected and thought she was ugly and has issues and shows her anger, Olga had to be perfect to their parents in order to keep everything peaceful in the house.

Helga was ignored, but Olga was forced to be the glue to save her family when their parents unhappiness rubs off of them.

This is a very good picture and the backstory of it is very saddening and probably very close to canon. Where this perfectionist attribute began to grow in Olga.

I think without Big Bob in their lives, the three Pataki women would be much better off. Miriam would tap into that unrealized potential and stop drinking so much. Olga wouldn't be as pressured to be overachiever and enjoy being a normal young woman. And Helga, would be able to reap the benefits of being around these two good role models, and learn to let out that thoughtful, sensitive, and artistic side of herself that only us, the audience, gets to see.

This reminds me of a story about Helga and Olga called Teenage Mother where Olga struggles to be perfect so that bob and miriam don't turn their anger out in little Helga and raise Her to be a good person at the same time.

OMG, And it would SO make sense that in Olga's mind, she probably thinks that being a "perfect wind-up doll" will help her family stay together, so she works hard to keep making As and everything just to keep her mom and dad together!! Wow! If that IS the message you were trying to get across I think you captured it very well! :nod: :nod: There's so much depth to this family, I can only imagine what life was like before Helga was born and this REALLY gives insight into that!
