Here's Red. So... yeah.
The resident book nerd, mostly covering fiction and tropes.
  • Asexuality: She has no interest in sex, but that doesn't mean she can't admire attractive people in the same way somebody might enjoy a sunset.
  • Been There, Shaped History: In the April fools video, she claims to be the one who sunk Atlantis, caused The Tunguska Event (with a power bar), condemned Balder to Hel by way of not crying for him, and told Pandora her keys were in the box.
  • Berserk Button: Do not admit fault at the burning of Alexandria. Also, you'd better not mention the The Taming of the Shrew, Pandora, presumed hatred of Percy Jackson, or any particularly morally-heinous/ Idiot Ball actions of the people/ medias she's presenting about (eg. Selene, Victor Frankenstein, the main villains of Titus Andronicus, etc.)
  • But Not Too White: In the Aztec myth of the Five Suns, she mentions that she burns easily due to being so pale, and jokingly claims she can get sunburn from particularly shiny teeth.
  • Catchphrase: She has several.
    • She frequently ends off her videos with: "So... yeah."
    • "ENORMOUS "F***-YOU!" DRAGON!" whenever a giant dragon shows up in one of her videos.
    • "Feel-good novel of the century!" when something horribly dark happens in a novel.
    • "TRULY A VICTORY FOR THE FORCES OF JUSTICE!" another sarcastic comment made when the heroes do something dickish.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Drawn in red.
  • Corpsing: On the channel's first Q&A, she's visibly trying not to laugh when she sees her roommate making befuddled faces from behind the camera. By the third time, she... might have cracked off-screen.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Frequently. The name of the channel is "Overly Sarcastic Productions" after all.
  • Motor Mouth: Red's line delivery is consistently rapid-fire. Acknowledged and inverted for the April Fools video, in which she speaks at an excruciatingly slow pace to accommodate viewer complaints (before she loses her temper in the middle and has to cut the video short).
  • Advertisement:
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: She apparently went on her own version of The Hero's Journey for one Trope Talk, leaving Blue to handle it in her place while her normal spot is covered in notes.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Is only referred to as Red in videos.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair can pretty much double as a full-body blanket for her avatar. Live action videos reveal her hair really is that long.
  • Signing Off Catchphrase: "So... yeah."
  • Troll: She spent the entire college hell video mispronouncing Bolgia, until Blue told her she was never allowed to say it again.
    Red: But I've never said Bolgia (pronounced correctly)!
