GEM!!! i'm playing through your demo right now! tbh i thought it was gonna be an rpg interactive game, however coding is already a pain in the ass so imagine if you have to format it that way lol. but this is good too AHHH! also i've fallen in love with c(hangjie) help dsvndsjvnf.
ahhhhh sorry that you were misled but you are absolutely right, i just do not have the sheer brain power to read instructions on how to implement rpg features, let alone actually code it 😂
join the club, vera, because i am also in love with C. we are lost causes 😌

Tell me more about Vera please
Oh my gosh I’m sorry this is so late, it got lost in my inbox
The thing about Vera, for me, is that her entire family doesn’t like her. The only possible exception is Ilya, but everyone else we see interact with her is cold, dismissive, or straight up hostile. This isn’t to say she’s not rude to them - but in that context, I think her rudeness stems from a sense of superiority that she had to develop because the only other option was believing she was the worst. She had to decide “my whole family is wrong and stupid and I’m better than them” so she wouldn’t believe what they said about her.
Now I’m not absolving her of her naturally mean and snobbish character, that’s definitely there too, but Countess Rostova explicitly states that Vera was raised differently than her siblings, so it’s not like she was treated the same and was just so mean everyone couldn’t help but hate her. We don’t know what that different treatment means, but since she’s the oldest I’m pretty sure it involved a lot of expectations that she clearly didn’t meet (ie being a demure, submissive, humble wife), so she’s looked at as a bit of a failure. I also think it’s telling that when she married Berg, her family was glad to be rid of her, which is kind of awful!
The parts of Vera’s family interactions we get to see in the book are rather antagonistic and mean; she’s clearly not blameless in that relationship. But I do really wonder what made her that way, and her own family’s treatment of her is the number one suspect. Tolstoy probably didn’t think that deeply about it but she’s mine now <3
I don’t have time to ramble about Vera/Berg right now but one day. One day.
