That new Taylor Swift song is totally trashy but it is also totally Hyde?? It’s like, Extremely Performative Campy Evil? Mega-Petty? Definitely Reminds Me of Too Sexy For My Shirt? All of those things describe Mr. Hyde.

This is why I never got invited to be part of any Jekyll and Hyde roleplays. Everyone else is taking Hyde real grimdark seriously and I’m over here writing Hyde like, “(valley girl voice) The old Jekyll can’t come to the phone right now . . .  why? Because she’s dead!”
