The idea that the Movie was wrong because Veronica “stupidly left her whole life behind at the drop of the hat purely for Logan Echolls, essentially cutting out any agency she had” is so odd to me. Firstly becuase on what planet would you want Veronica Fuckin’ Mars to be a corporate drone who would be involved in helping “primarily Fortune 500 companies. Our job is to make sure that frivolous lawsuits disappear before they reach the courtroom.” This is Veronica Mars we’re talking about. Any universe where she’d happily help giant companies similar to places like, say.. Kane Software. Is not a universe I’m interested in.
The movie fairly well stated that she lived a “normal” aka respectable life for 9 years and the first opportunity she had to chuck it all out the window, she did. That was the ultimate point of the movie, she could live a well to do life, marry Piz, work her way up the corporate ladder, make her dad happy because it’s the safe thing to do, the “right” thing. But easy and boring are not Veronica.
I think some of this comes from people not being a fan of Logan or not being into LO/VE and it’s fine if you don’t like that, I get that we all have different opinions and feelings. But I feel like a lot of people think she threw away her life solely to bone Logan Echolls - which isn’t the case. He’s a big part of it for sure but ultimately she wants to be a P.I, she wants to dig up corruption in Neptune. She knows it can lead down a very dark road but she doesn’t really care because she needs that adrenaline and intrigue, she knows deep down, who she is and want she wants.
Though I do still think that she should finish her law degree as it would be
silly not to, and may actually come in handy now and again, you know, to help save Logan from another murder charge or something ;)
