I love how instead of taking uncle Diedrich’s advice as an insult, OCiel legitimately said, “yeah, that guy has a point. I should stand on my own!” and then after hearing his dad and aunt kind of talk smack about him, he decides to think about his future in the context of his wants instead of his family’s (ie. owning a toy shop instead of worrying whether or not he’s fit to be an earl).
ALSO I FUCKIN LOVE-
HE’S JUST LIKE “I HAVE THIS DREAM AND IT’S GREAT” and even when his brother’s like “nah you can’t do that you can’t leave me alone,” he doesn’t say “haha you’re right.” No. He sticks to his plan to follow his fucking dreams but still comforts his brother regardless aaaaa it’s so cute.
AND THEN YEARS LATER he actually gets the opportunity be earl, meaning he really doesn’t need to worry about making his own way by starting a toy shop.
Because now he has a shit ton of money and power.
And what does he do with that shit ton of money and power?
He doesn’t open up a toy shop.
HE CREATES AN ENTIRE TOY COMPANY AND FUCKING MAKES IT THE MOST SUCCESSFUL TOY/CANDY COMPANY IN GREAT BRITAIN.
