I just ment that in the omake he seemed aggressive when he said the thing about fake brothers
Thanks so much for the clarification, anon. I understand that you mean this scene here:
While this almost seems to come out of nowhere in a more lighthearted side story, I’m not sure if I’d classify this as Ciel being aggressive. When I read it, I saw as a sign that Ciel’s tendency to isolate himself somewhat had early roots, even before his later trauma.
However, you were initially asking about this situation if 2CT was real, and, in that case, I’d say this would be an actual clue towards the theory. He’s saying he didn’t need fake brothers since he has a real one. Either way, however, I don’t think this is him being aggressive. Maybe a bit dark, but not aggressive.
Which goes back to your original question. Personally, I don’t think Ciel was trying to hurt Lizzy when he said he found Frances scary and wouldn’t want a strong wife like that.
Ciel had never practiced with Lizzy, so he had no idea she was strong or comparable to Frances. Lizzy doesn’t really act much like her mother most of the time. Frances acts very strict, while Lizzy is very forgiving towards Ciel and seems to have a more carefree most of the time. Although, she does have a temper, it’s not usually seen.
Ciel was being genuine here, I think. He had no idea that his words would bother or affect Lizzy. He might have even thought this was a compliment.
Thanks for writing, Anon. Have a lovely day.
