Get thee to a nunnery.

Get thee to a nunnery. - Silent Hill: Shattered Memories - Lisa Garland
Hamlet inspired this picture; after having collected the Infinite Jest memento I began to wonder about its' significance to Lisa and Cheryl. The Ophelia inscription is the significant part of the memento course, and I thus decided to read about Hamlet since I had never read that particular Shakespeare play. I discovered that Ophelia suffers an unfortunate end, and that it is unclear whether she commits suicide or she dies accidentally. This ties in very well with my theory that Lisa represents survivor's guilt.

I am actually reading Hamlet now and have discovered yet another connection between Ophelia and Lisa (and Cheryl too for that matter). Hamlet accuses Ophelia of being a woman without virtue in act III, and suggests she goes to a nunnery. This term can also refer to a brothel, which is more likely what Hamlet means when he uses the word. Hamlet views women very poorly, as he thinks that they are all promiscuous without much else to offer. In the Sleaze and Sirens ending Lisa is seen with Harry and Michelle, and they are about to engage in questionable activities considering Harry was married at the time...and of course if you have done certain actions Lisa comes onto Harry before her nap. This other connection certainly sheds an interesting lens onto the situation if nothing else.

The Infinite Jest memento is indeed in this picture, it is the object I am holding/looking at. If a closeup shot of it is desired I have a picture that shares the same name as the memento that shows the rhinestone detailing on the skull face.

Dayum girl. You sure are doing your research! Never knew Lisa can come onto Harry. I think it's now time to play the game again and make all the naughty choices!

Haha I've gotten all of the Lisa variations I think she says something like "I take a compliment where I can get one" if you look and it makes her happy, and her other ones are "I saw you looking" (she tells you to leave) or if you don't look "you're not like other guys are you Harry". I think some websites also give you the different versions of texts/photos/conversations etc, I had a lot of fun reading that.
