>>111457633>Did you miss the montage near the beginning where she has to go about her princess-ly duties?
Those were households Chores at best. >but calling it "attempted murder" is a stretch.
I’m not calling it attempted murder. I’m making a comparison that intent matters equally as much, of not more so, than result. And she got a mysterious substance that was supposed to make her parents change their mind about her picking a suitor, which anyone who can put two and two together would figure out amounts to drugging and light mind control, which is still immoral.> She admits that much to everyone and went out of her way to correct her mistake.
She only tries to correct it because, as you so readily pointed out, it backfired. She wouldn’t have felt a lick of guilt had it worked.> She learned to appreciate ...
To appreciate what her parents did for her, she had to lose all the luxuries they provided for her.
To learn to appreciate her mother’s rational concern over her live direction, her mother had to be turned into a irrational beast.
To learn about how bad her selfishness could be, she had to get fucked over by it personally.
If you haven’t noticed the trend yet, it’s that she doesn’t learn her lessons until they result inconsequences that personally affect her. That’s not really learning so much as it is conditioning.> Yes, she did. Again, she admits all of that to everyone.
And how much is an expected penitent Apology speech after causing a national crisis to be believed? It took that much to get her appreciate her family, what makes you think she’d learn responsibility as a leader any easier.
I’m not saying she doesn’t understand that she has it good, because if she didn’t she wouldn’t have tried to keep it. I’m saying if it took hell and high water to get her to learn basic compassion for just her loved ones as a n adult mind you, she’s not really in the running for best girl.
