Today at Support for Special Needs, we meet Vanellope von Schweetz, a character from the new Disney animated feature Wreck It Ralph and the most recent fictional character with whom Schuyler found herself strongly identifying. Vanellope joins the club along with Ariel the mermaid, Nemo, Tinker Bell, Pinocchio, and Scout Finch (or perhaps Boo Radley, if we're really being honest here).

If you're a big baby about SPOILERS, even in a kid's movie like Wreck It Ralph, two things:

First of all, this post is, by necessity, one big spoiler, so consider yourself warned.

Secondly, get a grip.

I have never met you or your daughter, but I've been following your story for years and last night I had the wierdest sensation of recognition.

The AI character in Halo 4, Cortana, visually reminds me of Schuyler. The smile, the head tilt and the face are all very similar to your daughter. It's bizarre feeling of being reminded of someone you've never met by something that doesn't exist.
