It drives me up a wall when people say that sending Bethany to the Circle is the ‘best option for her if you care about her’. Moreso when she’s painted as happy and loving life in fandom and in game. Yes, this former slave hold-turned-Circle that has been confirmed one of the more abusive and fanatical towards mages is suddenly a happy and safe place because Bethany’s there. Either she’s lying in dialogue about it or she’s being willfully ignorant. Either way it paints a horrifying narrative.
