“That’s not your choice. It’s already been decided for you. You can’t change what’s happened. The only thing you can control is how you deal with it.”
Quincy is a final girl in the most real sense of the word, dubbed a final girl by the media after being the sole survivor of a massacre in which five of her friends died. It has been 10 years since the loss of her friends and Quincy has put it firmly behind her, she doesn’t talk about it at all. It also helps that a lot of the night of the massacre is just a black spot in her memory.
Quincy is not alone in her final girl status, with fellow final girls Lisa and Sam having been given the same title by the media. Despite the media’s attempts to get the girls together, all three are trying to deal with their trauma in their own ways. Quincy chooses to ignore the trauma, whilst Lisa handled it face on, providing self-help to others, and Sam, well, she has completely gone off-grid. It is, therefore, a massive shock when the girls are trust together in unusual circumstances, and Sam seems intent on making Quincy relive the past and delve into her missing memories.
Quincy is written in such an engaging way, you can’t help but worry about her and want to protect her at all costs. This is one protagonist you won’t be yelling at the page for making terrible decisions.
