About this scene though, while Diedrich is
harsh right because of inheritance laws and our!Ciel being the second son, our boy actually did make a living for himself by building and then expanding the Funtom corporation all by himself after he received the title of Earl Phantomhive (and it’s bringing him tons of money).
So, despite becoming Earl Phantomhive since Real!Ciel died anyway, he still went and proved that he would have managed on his own, had the tragedy not happened.
And I’m proud of him for that. :3
