>>88210026>which is in fact quite complimentary
what? I don't think so. Tom gets upset when things don't go his way, and I don't see him appreciating Janna's manipulativeness and brashness, the way she just does whatever and flat-out ignores direct wishes (like "stop doing that") of other people.>Janna also being as assertive as she is isn't they type to be intimidated by Tom's tempestuous moments
Star is also assertive and not intimidated by Tom, and they don't mesh at all. In fact, Star is also a bit bad for Tom, she seems to grind on his gears and the way she handles him seems to provoke and aggravate him rather than ease his anger problems. And Janna is being portrayed as rather similar to Star, only less kind, less caring, less considerate, more selfish.>she'd like his intensity
Yes, she'd be amused by how easy it is to provoke him and wind him up. Just look at how much she enjoys teasing Marco. Still doesn't make it a good match for Tom.
Also thinking that Tom, control freak Tom, is someone who'd just happily submit to being somewhat rudely or teasingly bossed around is pretty laughable. Sure, Tom might want someone who's able to take him, but that doesn't mean someone who'd assert dominance, as I don't think his self-esteem is strong enough to cope with being teased and ridiculed and played with publicly the way Janna's fond of doing. He's not easygoing enough for that. It's why they broke up with Star, he can't take the bantz.>there's nothing wrong with being attracted to somebody because of their background/culture
lel, really now.
The thing is that based on how they've been portrayed so far, I don't believe there'd be a "fun" relationship dynamic. Not unless they'd be hack-rewritten into different people.
