(old lady voice) it's been 400 years... But wow, I thought this story would wrap up in under 170~ ish chapters. This thread is so full of salt you can use it to season a few hundred meals for a whole year. THERE'S EVEN A WHOLE PAGE ABT GUNDAM???? People are still going at the MJ vs Vio debacle, I see. Besides, you can't deny that the author is terrible at handling their characters. Spoiler: Putting in my Two Cents (tm) See: they should have used an exposition in-universe using their PoVs. All the things we have abt MJ's niceness are readers piecing things together, and the rest is heavily implied. MJ isn't a Good Person in TL1 and she isn't good at the present TL2 either lol. Which "good person" steals the man her sister likes, despite knowing said sister is heavily infatuated with him (Claudia, TL1)? And does a "Good Person" make overtures at a man who very much likes her half-sister (and said half-sister is attracted to the said man, but still unaware of it)? Lol Nah. Vio finally getting some sense knocked into her and disengaging from MJ and Co. in TL2 is suddenly "kawaisou UwU" because that's what the default should actually be. MJ wasn't even that pitiable in TL1. She literally witnessed every day screaming matches and insults thrown at her "beloved big sister," and did absolutely nothing to stop it. Didn't even question why it happened. She probably just assumed her sister had a bad streak in her (with family like them, lol no wonder) and let it float through her empty, empty, head. Even the most sheltered airhead can probably idk, actually TELL THAT THEIR PARENT IS BEING UNNECESSARILY ABRASIVE WITH THEIR SIBLING??? Vio in TL1 is THE bad guy because the attempted murder of your sister in abuse-induced madness is infinitely worse than you know. Standing by and watching it happen for years. TL2 is where Vio finally disengages and everyone gets to lie in the graves they dug. There's no reason good enough in the world for people content to let the status quo be if they're blissfully happy in their lil bubble of rose-colored glass houses ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It isn't even a question of ethics, it's just plain common sense. A good person In the Know wouldn't actively covet another person's special someone they're interested in jsyk. Funny thing is that this could have all been resolved earlier...if Vio just saved up every instance of her parents' of emotional abuse in the 2nd Timeline, dug around for a good lawyer and her Grandpa's support, and reclaimed her right to the Duchy. This is why I love KR Villainesses. They serve quick as you please the second time they come around.
