Awhile back, (about three months), you asked what twins thought of the 2CT. I'm a fraternal twin, so this might not be correct, plus I can't really figure out if the theory is about one twin killing the other, or just taking the others place. For the latter one, I think the way the evidence is presented is off. For instance, I've read about one Ciel being shy, and the other being extroverted, and the evidence seems contrary to how a twin would act. (part 1)
(Part 2) In my experience with my twin brother, who is much less shy than I am, he tends to try and support me. He either drags me along, or I follow him around and let him introduce me. Also, if one of us died, we wouldn’t deny it. For instance, if I was in the same (Hypothetical) situation as the second Ciel, my first priority wouldn’t be revenge, it would be tricking the demon into not getting my soul. (Continued.)
(That’s another thing I find odd about Ciel. He’s very clever, so (Continued) (why is he so set on having Sebastian eat him? It seems like something he could get out of.) What I’m getting at here, is from my experience, Ciel being a twin seems unlikely, cause if it is true, based on the large amount of research Yana has done, you’d think she’d have talked to some twins or something. Sorry about the long thing, I just think a ton.
It’s been 3 months already? Wow! And yes, I did ask about it some time ago. Thanks for the detailed response! And double thanks for being against the 2CT! Don’t be sorry- I don’t mind long messages at all :)
The theory goes all over the place, tbh, whatever the 2CT fans thinks is convenient, so we have Ciel literally pushing his twin at the cultists, his twin sacrificing himself for him, Sebastian’s stomach being like some weird space arsenal, and of course, Ciel pretending to be his twin for reasons.
You’re correct about one twin being shy and the other being extroverted, though. That’s what the 2CT fans believe anyway.
Interesting! So from your experience, it’d be more realistic for the twins to be helping each other instead of just one of them running off and leaving the other in the dust. So far, if we go by 2CT, the extroverted twin abandoned our!Ciel twice, once to play with Klaus at Vincent’s party, and once in the BoC sidestory, instead of dragging our!Ciel with him.
Also, not denying it! That’s a good point too. I liked it so much I bolded it lol.
I agree with you! Yana does a lot of research and it’s really not hard to look at how twins interact. 2CT-ers say they have a deep, psychological bond blah blah, but I recall Yana having trouble writing Edward and Lizzie because she didn’t have a sibling. So if she thought it was hard writing for two non-twin siblings, I see no reason why she’d make the main character a twin and hide it for 100+ chapters.
I also agree that the crux of the story is the contract and really, Ciel having a twin won’t change anything about himself or anyone else tbh.
