Going forward from the scene of the excerpt that I shared in a previous post, Tiffany goes into a state of shock after hearing her dad’s news about the fall of the Hansel empire. She finds herself trialing through a denial, self-loathing, and depression period. The drowning period becomes necessary for her to deal with reality. She drowns in sorrow until she reaches the bottom and there’s nowhere to go but up. Tiffany soon realizes that her only options are to either stay drowned where it is bleak and lonely or to make an effort to rise above, -or die trying. Tragedy and hardship build character. And we see Tiffany grow from a spoiled, helpless princess brat to a woman overcome with determination. BUT at the same time, she still has the princess syndrome in her that she can’t fully grow out of. It’s who she is. And sometimes it seems to get the best of her. It’s almost like a battle of the two alter egos of the old spoiled Tiffany and the strong, humble, independent Tiffany that she is trying so hard to become.
Okay, now for the juicy stuff!
