hmmmm I’m pretty sure she can be kick-ass while dealing with her ptsd and being in the middle of a FUCKING WAR and seeing everyone she loves being tortured blowing up, being eaten alive, and FUCKING BRAINWASHED TO THE POINT HE DOESN’T EVEN REMEMBER WHO HE IS
saying she isn’t a strong kick-ass heroine BECAUSE she has ptsd is very rude and basically denying her the right to process everything that happened to her. she is human, and I’m glad to see a character that is actually affected by the bad things that happen to them instead of just ignoring and moving on with the plot like 90% of the ya books I’ve read
and yes, they keep her in the dark about basically everything, and she follows orders, as a soldier in a war I may add, but it doesn’t mean she is passive!! she is far from passive!!! she has her own ideals that are very different from the people who are “in charge”, and in the end she KILLS COIN BECAUSE OF THAT!! BECAUSE SHE KNOWS THAT WHAT COIN IS DOING IS WRONG AND SHE WANTS TO STOP IT!!!!!!!! HOW CAN THAT BE PASSIVE??
this is a war movie!
they are really making a dystopian war movie!!!
they’re not bullshitting and turning it into a love triangle!!!!!!!
it’s a WAR movie with a strong and kick-ass female character based on a ya trilogy!!!!!!!!!!
and I was thinking I would never see this day coming
