Pop Dream #9: Lynn and Lucy
Are you still there? Good, ’cause it’s that time again! Time for the next Pop Dream!
Before we start, I’d like to once again apologize for the delay. I didn’t intend for the gap between segments to get this long. I planned to do this last month (September), but real life kept getting in the way.
Also, time for a serious moment (Don’t worry; it’ll be quick)…
Yes, we’re quite aware of the recent events concerning The Loud House series creator, Chris Savino which have led to his being let go from Nickelodeon. I find the actions that have lead to Mr. Savino’s termination to be deplorable and unfortunate for the victims. However, this Pop Dream miniseries will continue as originally planned. The Pop Dream segments are all about the characters and the show, not about the creators, so we’re going to separate the man from his work here. For anyone who wishes to make a comment for this segment, we’d appreciate it if you would only comment on the characters and the show, and not about Chris Savino’s personal life. This isn’t TMZ. Twinsanity is a site for entertainment, cracking jokes and having fun, and we’d like to keep it that way. Any comments regarding the recent news about Chris Savino and his actions will not be published here. Thank you.
OK, enough of that. Now, on with the fun!
Our celebration of The Loud House continues with two more of the Loud sisters. One of them is lives for sports and competition, while the other one lives in perpetual darkness. Today’s Pop Dream spotlights Lynn and Lucy Loud!
At 13 years old, Lynn is the fifth-oldest child of the Loud family, and the youngest of Lincoln’s five older sisters. She is named after her father. Lynn attends Royal Woods Middle School. She possesses a habit of turning everything into a sport.
At 8 years old, Lucy is the fifth-youngest child of the Loud family, and the oldest of Lincoln’s five younger sisters. Her most annoying habit is popping up and scaring people, which is a running gag in the series. Along with Lincoln, she’s the quietest out of all the Loud siblings.
Lynn has thick brown hair, which like Luan’s is tied into a pony tail. Unlike Luan, however, Lynn has thick bangs on the front of her head. Lynn also wears a red and white jersey with the number 1 on it.
Lynn is also the only Loud sibling who wears socks to sleep.
As for Lucy, she’s clearly into the color black. She’s the only member of the Loud family with black hair (and as photos of Lucy as a baby have proven, her black hair is natural, not dyed). She’s also the only Loud sibling besides Lincoln who’s hair color isn’t yellow nor brown.
Lucy is also the only Loud sibling who’s eyes have yet to be seen.
Lynn is athletic and competitive. She loves to play sports and enjoys roughhousing with her siblings.
She enjoys playing every existing sport, including football, soccer, basketball, and baseball. She is also skilled in various forms of martial arts, such as kickboxing, Mexican wrestling, (or lucha libre) and parkour.
In addition to sports, Lynn seems to have another hobby: annoying her brother Lincoln!
The reason why Lynn chooses Lincoln as her victim often is likely because since Lincoln is the only boy in the house, she would think that he’d be less likely to resist her roughhousing. Also, because of their closeness in age (Lynn is 2 years older than Lincoln).
Lucy is mostly about holding sances, reading and writing dark poetry and dabbling in the dark arts.
One gag about Lucy that I find funny is how when she uses an onomatopoeia, she’ll say the actual word instead making the sound. She says the word “sigh” instead of sighing. She said the word “Gasp!” on a few occasions, and once in the short “Spell It Out”, while eating, she said the words…
“Space Invader”: After an argument with Lucy (whom she shares a bedroom with), Lynn asks Lincoln if she can bunk with him. After some persuasion,
As well as giving him the old “sad eyes” routine, Lincoln relents.
Lynn proves to be the roommate from hell. Bouncing a ball against the wall, luchador wrestling with Lincoln and snoring while drooling. When Lincoln tries to subject his sister to the same treatment, hoping that she’ll get fed up and leave…
…She instead moves all of her stuff into Lincoln’s room, declaring him “The best roommate ever!”
“Lock ‘n Loud”: Lynn organizes a security squad made up of herself and her rollerball team.
“The Price of Admission”: Lincoln, freaked out after watching a scary movie, is asked to retrieve something from the attic. Afraid to go there alone, he tries to convince Lucy to accompany him with the promise that “There might be bats up there!”
“House Music”: Lucy, along with her siblings, are performing as a band in a county fair. Their mom Rita gushes over them before they perform.
Rita: Ooh! Look at my little rock stars!
Lucy: My real genre is death metal.
Rita: SO CUTE!!
Neither Lynn nor Lucy are among my favorite Loud sisters, but each of them have their share of amusing moments. Lucy in particular surprised me, as I ended up enjoying her character more than I thought I would. Usually I find goth characters to be somewhat limited, but TLH managed to get more material from the character than I would have. And that we’re doing Lucy and Lynn near the end of October somehow seems fitting. So let’s end this with a musical trip from the dark side…of fashion!
Next time, it’s the twins Lola & Lana. Keep Pop Dreaming.
