I’ve had the realization that I’ve been misleading you all accidentally
You see, when I say I love Joan of Arc, I actually mean the martyr. The Person. I adore that snippet of history because there’s a lot of ways to interpret it and all of them are INCREDIBLY interesting.
That’s why I always add “…and all fictional versions of her” after I say that, usually.
Fate Jeanne didn’t actually grow on me until further into Apocrypha, and she isn’t actually my favorite Fate character (that would be Tamamo and the other 8, because her lore and characterization based on her in-universe backstory is awesome). But I DO adore her, and from there Jalter and Jasl just sorta slotted into place.
Same with Granblue Jeanne and Djeanne, really. I love the archetype and she’s adorable, but obviously still isn’t my favorite character (who could have possibly guessed?)
Then there’s SnB Jeanne, who is actually my favorite SnB character.
Do you know, this morning, I was on a train that went through a city that wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for you. I bought a ticket from a man who would likely be dead if it wasn’t for you. I read up on my work, a whole field of scientific inquiry that only exists because of you.
