    CARRIE, 1976

    dir. Brian de Palma

    "She did not know if her gift came from the lord of light or of darkness, and now, finally finding that she didn’t care which, she was overcome with almost indescribable relief, as if a huge weight, long carried, had slipped from her shoulders."β€” Stephen King

    On the topic of Susan Snell

    After Carrie herself, Sue Snell is my favorite character from Stephen King's "Carrie." She is certainly one of the best, the truest of portrayals of the teenage experience. Even beyond that, as she grapples with the consequences of her own actions, as she moves out of her own self-centered phase, and begins to ponder humanity and why people do what they do, her thoughts and actions morph into something more mature. Her realization that the world is so very gray, that there's more than bad and good, that she can be bad, is so very human .

    I often tell people that I love Sue so much because she's so relatable it's uncomfortable. As she confronts her own flaws, you confront yours too. Few people would actually go so far as to throw tampons at a girl having her first period, but the fact is that Stephen King does a good job with character motivations. He does a good job as to explaining why decent people do shitty things. And where you might know that you would never participate in something so cruel, you read some of the things Sue thinks about Carrie, and you realize "holy shit, I've thought along the same lines about so-and-so, am I a bad person? "

    No. You're probably not. Like Sue, you're just human. And you can be mean, and you can think cruel things. Unlike Sue, you wouldn't actually act on any of that.

    And that's why Sue is so interesting, because I'm sure we've all been at a place where we could have made a right decision, or you could have made a wrong decision. And you could have hurt someone. Where you hope, you never make that decision that hurts someone, Sue, a fictional character, has made that bad decision, and she deals with it.

    Sue made a really shitty choice at the beginning of the novel, but she spends the rest of the novel making up for it. Sue is a good girl at heart, just so incredibly human.

    She's also incredibly self-aware, something you just don't always see in adolescents, or just in people in general.

    Some of the best lines in the novel come from Sue's introspection. From Sue's ability to see her own flaws and the flaws of her peers.

    "But hardly anyone ever finds out that their actions really, actually, hurt other people! People don't get better, they just get smarter. When you get smarter, you don't stop pulling the wings off of flies, you just think of better reasons for doing it."

    I think this line is incredibly important. If you're like me, the first time you read this you might go: Um. Actually, Sue, I wouldn't pull wings off of bugs. But that's not really the point is it. I'm autistic, which is probably why I initially took the line so literally, but the strangeness of it, the icky imagery, it made me stop and think. To really consider the line. And you realize that while it's not always as malicious as picking the wings off of some poor bug for your own amusement, you have, at some point or another, jumped through all sorts of hoops to justify something, rather than just stop picking the fucking wings off of flies.

    I've recently adopted the "live and let live," mind set. It was honestly a fucking journey, but it was well worth it. Plenty of people do weird shit all the time, and so long as they're not hurting anyone, it's just so much easier to go with it. To blink once and move on. It is so much easier than jumping through the hoops to make yourself the good guy when you realize what you're thinking about another person is fucking rude.

    When I feel my live and let live resolve sliding, when I try to find reasons as to why the weird hobby that isn't personally for me should be shunned, why it's okay that I'm thinking these judgmental things, I remind myself of this quote. I'm not being the morally better person here, I'm just thinking of smarter sounding reasons to rip someone's wings off.

    Another line from that always sticks out is this:

    "Someone ought to be sorry in a way that counts. In a way that actually means something."

    There are a lot of jokes in the community about how Sue pimped out her boyfriend instead of simply apologizing, but I think those kind of jokes-- though I make them myself-- massively undercuts Sue's character while also ignoring a major confrontation that's just happened.

    Sue is very self-critical, and she knows damn well that somewhere inside, she's still being selfish even after having gone to detention and "making up" for her mistake. Oh, she was confident when telling off Chris. She knew what they all did was shitty, and she said as much. But Chris knows, and Sue knows, that part of this self-righteous attitude is just her covering her own ass. She went to detention because she thought she deserved it, yes, but she also did not want to miss out on prom. (As a reminder, the deal was go to detention, or miss prom.)

    I think it's incredibly telling that she's even able to recognize her own buried selfishness. I think it's admirable that she didn't keep it buried, she saw her hidden colors, and she yanked them up and aired them out. She sat on them, and she reflected.

    And while still a bit misguided, she remedied her selfishness by taking away the one thing she wanted. Prom. She gave her spot up to Carrie, gave her the chance to get along, to be part of things. There's now no room to say that she only went to Desjardin's detention to save her prom ticket.

    But even still she struggles with her decision. She still isn't sure that she isn't being selfish.

    "She was still uncomfortable about her own motives, and afraid to examine them too deeply, lest she discover a jewel of selfishness winking at her from the black velvet of her subconscious."

    God, I love this character.

    Because I don't know. I don't know either if this is selfishness. When you apologize, it's because it's what's right, but doesn't it appease your own guilt too? Doesn't your guilt eat at you? Doesn't it gnaw at your stomach and shake up your brain? Doesn't the apology stop it all? Here, she is no longer a teenage girl trying to do the right thing, here she is coming into her humanity and realizing that not even her own mind is free from the gray area. Philosophers have debated this shit forever, does altruism truly exist if you get something out of the right thing too? That debate is neither here nor there, but here is where Stephen King's writing shines. He's captured the picture of a conflicted human better than any photographer could.

    Well, whatever she felt about it at the time, a couple years later, after the destruction, you can see her growth. You can see that in the end, her decision about prom proved to be unselfish in the end.

    "But I am sorry for Carrie. They've forgotten her, you know. They've made her out into some kind of symbol and forgotten that she was a human being as real as you reading this, with hopes and dreams and blah blah blah. Useless to tell you that, I suppose...

    ...But she was. And she hurt. More than any of us probably know, she hurt. And I'm so sorry, and I hope it was good for her. That prom. Until the terror began, I hope it was good and fine and wonderful and magic."

    This excerpt holds even more weight when you remember that just before saying this, Sue also says that. "True sorrow is as rare as true love."

    Sue did a really shitty thing, but after the fact, she tries to go through life the same way we all should. By trying our best and apologizing along the way.

    One more thing I'd like to discuss before wrapping this all up, is how after everything, she finds Carrie and she sits with her as she dies. She knows what could happen if she confronts Carrie. There's an entire town in flames to prove it. But she follows her anyway, without even really thinking about it. Up until this point, everything she's done in regard to Carrie is done with great hesitance, with a lot of thought. That isn't what happened this time. It's like she knows that she's partly responsible for this, she knows that everyones inaction before the story even began is responsible for this. She knows that her own meddling is responsible for this. And so she does what she should have done from the beginning, and she goes to Carrie and she talks to her. She lets her see the stars one last time before she dies.

    And then she runs and she runs, and she screams as she stands in an empty field, and period blood courses down her legs. The story has come full circle, and Sue is irrevocably changed for it all.

    There's a coming of age story hidden in this tragedy, hidden with one of the only kids who actually got to grow-up. It lies with Sue.

    Brahms Heelshire - Maybe? He's strong enough to throw Greta but he never seems to chase his victims outside of the house so maybe 5/10

    Billy Lenz - He looks like he'd put up a fight but I can and will drop kick that Christmas bitch 8/10
