She kinda is, for a few seconds. More of a cameo, but she's as cute as ever. :)
It's funny; fandoms have always have infighting but it was buried more. Everyone just THINKS it's a recent phenomenon because of social media!
I'm of the old guard, was on the usenet groups back in the mid-90s, etc.. it was pretty crazy. The only thing I will say is that people seemed less... mean back then. The drama was there but it was a bit more civilized.
Wow, you drew her really well!
I was one of those Minerva "fanboys" back in the day; I don't recall ever bothering anyone to draw her but I did enjoy a lot of art of her that came along. She looks great in your art style, awesome job. :)
