Marie Antoinette is just so aggressively self-involved and frustrating, and yet I can’t help but adore her character anyway. Maybe it’s BECAUSE of that. (It certainly isn’t as if the show is unaware of her flaws or tries to brush them off as cute quirks that don’t really cause anyone any damage, which is a pet peeve of mine.)
Also for some reason Rose of Versailles doesn’t set off my “augh no that was a REAL PERSON” thing I get with Disney’s Pocahontas or Bluth’s Anastasia. I have no idea why; I mean, she IS a cartoon-ified rendition of a real person just like the above two examples. Maybe because she’s fictionalized, but not shoved into a Disney Princess mold.
Meanwhile, Oscar’s just so idealistic as to be blind to the faults of others. (I’m still very early in.) I LOVE honor-bound idealists who are eventually forced to evaluate their own viewpoints. I mean I also dig lady knights and Oscar’s close enough, so there’s that.
This is not johnlock nor sherlock, sorry, you don’t have to publish it. I just saw you deleted the twinkel tailor soldier spy-post, but I thought it was ingenius, so I made a gif XD
from now on this is exactly what i’m gonna call it
