personally, as a victim of bullying, jan and ana really got to me. sylas is a whole different issue, and everyone has a lot of growing to do, but jan is at a place in her arc where i personally am Not Okay with her. i hope she grows more as a person as the story goes, but for now, can't say i root for the world to reward her until she learns a little empathy. but i guess the fact that you have people as divided over fictional people as they get over real ones speaks to your skill an author.
this is the only kind of january-is-bad opinion i’ll listen to tbh. bc you acknowledge she’s not a static character and also that she isn’t real :y it’s the people that talk about her like she’s a real person that needs to be lectured (or worse: the people that want her to be punished) that grate on me
i respect u bc you respect me as an author and trust me to know what i’m doing with her as a story teller. (and i’m sorry to hear about the bullying..!!! as a fellow childhood bully victim i feel u)
