Just because someone empathizes with Oswald doesn’t mean they hate Ed.
I love both characters equally and I also recognize that they both have flaws & reasons for doing what they did. Neither of them are perfect. Neither are completely justified in their actions. Neither are completely wrong either.
That’s what makes them so complex.
Oswald didn’t deserve to be shot by Ed, but Isabella didn’t deserve to be hit by a train either.
Edward abso-fucking-lutely never deserved all of the abuse and bullying he’s faced throughout his life by people who were supposed to love and protect him. (It can be argued that this pain and abuse helped to make him who he is)
Everyone is in pain. Everyone has fucked up. This is Gotham.
