Yesterday has once more been established that QP has what Silmarillion fans would call a very “Turin Turambar” side to her personality. (*) She attracts doom like honey attracts flies, both by an unhealthy amount of bad luck and an even unhealthier propensity for digging her own grave in most situations. Sad, but true.
So she came clean to her mother concerning the course she lied about. I’m both proud and baffled. Especially since the lies weren’t even really necessary in the first place. She is, if not an adult, at least an adolescent woman. She should not be cowering before her parents like before some despotic ruler. Especially because her parents aren’t despotic rulers. They’re rather stern, unreasonable at times (like all people), but in the end just flesh and blood like the rest of us. Most of the unearthly fear she feels for her mother is in her head.
Of course, now Doom has taken shape (the shape of disgruntled parents) and the coming time (Weeks? Months?Years?) may be very hard on the both of us…
