I'm surprised we haven't seen any nightmare sequences like walker Clem in season 1, or at least references to nightmares, like Telltale showing us the audio of Lee's nightmare where he killed the senator.
Before I slap you with this wall of text, I'll pose the question: don't you think Clementine would be afflicted with some pretty bad post traumatic stress or at least nightmares considering everything she has seen and been through? It would certainly be an interesting theme for Telltale to explore given the extremely personal viewpoint we get in TWD game. Plus that, I think some more awareness needs to be spread about post traumatic stress.
It's not something that I want Clem to have to live with, but it only seems reasonable that she would be affected by her experiences in that manner given everything she has been through. I'm surprised she can get even a single nights worth of peaceful sleep given the huge cavalcade of horrors she had to go through all at once in episode 5 of season 1, not to mention the ones implied in season 2, and the other traumas inflicted on her throughout season 1.
I'll make a list:
1.Gets kidnapped by a maniac which she may then have to kill
2.gets smeared with intestines so she can sneak with Lee through the nightmarish walker herd. Man I would never forget that fear if I had to sneak through a horde of corpses. But then I'm not as tough as Clementine.
3.Sees her parents Ed and Diana as walkers, not really something you can unsee;
4.then she has to either kill out of mercy or leave Lee behind in the saddest scene of season 1.
The remainder of her possible mental trauma was not in a single day, but here's an unorganized list to give you an idea:
5.She also witnesses (to an unknown extent) Christa's baby dying
6. She witnessed Omid die in front of her, and in her mind it was her fault.
7. Speaking of guilt, she feels responsible for the deaths of Lee, Kenny, and Ben due to her running away.
8. In Season 1, she saw one of her friends, either Carley or Doug get shot in the face right in front of her,
9. One of her closest friends, Duck, dies, which she semi-witnesses, then she hears Katjaa kill herself
10. She see's Lee's friend Mark crawling down the stairs with no legs, and she then has to climb through the horror show of cutting tools the St Johns use to save Lee, Kenny and Lilly.
TL:DR she's seen more shit than the average Vietnam war veteran. I'm honestly surprised that she doesn't get recurring nightmares over the shit she has seen. Maybe she does, and Telltale are waiting until later to hit us with this, like with Lee. It would be interesting if due to her traumas, nightmares became a discomforting, recurring and unshakable aspect of Clementine's story, much like these kind of nightmares become an unshakable part of life for people who have to suffer them in real life.
Anyway, I'll just end this conversation starter with this other conversation starter:
