Excerpt:

 

Zora Gilbert: Wait, can I ask you all something? Because I don’t know if this is just a me thing or if it’s something we got from the internet. My roommate and I have started describing shitty male characters of a certain type, like a certain level of pathetic—maybe I got this from Missy—as just like, a wet man.

Melissa Brinks: So I’ve heard that on Tumblr.

Zora: Like he’s just wet.

Maddi Butler: Yeah, I don’t—

Melissa: We had a real discussion recently about “wet cat of a man—”

Zora: Yes.

Melissa: —versus “poor little meow-meow.”

Zora: Right. Gale is not a poor little meow-meow. He is a wet cat.

Melissa: He’s a wet cat.

Zora: Yes.

Melissa: Wyll is a poor little meow-meow.

Zora: Yes.

Maddi: Is this an appropriate time to ask what the hell a “meow-meow” is? Because I have seen this for years and I am not familiar.

Zora: It’s like a character who’s pathetic and sweet and needs help. Like a sad kitten, you know?

Melissa: Yeah.

Maddi: Uh-huh.

Zora: Sad kitten energy.

Melissa: Wyll is a poor little meow-meow.

Maddi: Okay.

Melissa: Versus Gale, who’s a wet cat.

Zora: Who’s an adult cat who got thrown in the bathtub.

Melissa: Yeah.

Zora: But like isn’t doing anything to solve that for himself.

Melissa: I think Astarion is a wet cat disguising himself as a poor little meow-meow.

Zora: Yes. People want Astarion to be their poor little meow-meow, but actually, he does want to enslave people.

Melissa: He’s a wet cat.

Zora: So.

Maddi: Astarion is very funny to me.

Melissa: I love Astarion—you know what?

Zora: One of my Tavs—uhh, yeah.

[LAUGHTER]

Zora: One of them. One of my four.
