I do not question the fact that Book Dany is incompetent, it's one of the things that make her a good character.RiseOfTheWhiteWolf said:Napoleon was a dickhead and the Germans won in the end. It was justice. He was a wannabe Charlemagne and most undoubtedly a villain.Sonmi said:Two things come to mind...
Any attempt to vilify Napoleon Bonaparte, or anyone calling the book version of Dany a "Mary Sue".
It never comes down to fisticuffs, but things can get pretty heated when either of those happen, especially the first one.
Book Dany is an incompetent ruler.
I'm not being ironic. Come at me.
Napoleon losing was not justice, it was the result of plots by filthy regressive monarchists everywhere, a result of betrayal upon betrayal by opportunistic jackals, not to mention the intervention of Britain who simply has to fuck Europe up whenever its trade supremacy might be jeopardized. (Same reason why Germany was not properly neutered post WW2, the Brits feared it would give the French and the Russians too much regional power)
Bonaparte was a hero and a visionary, slandered in the public consciousness through years of royalist rosbif propaganda, he's the saviour Europe needed, but that the elite eventually teamed up on due to the threat his mere existence posed to them.
I'll concede that he was in the wrong in the way he handled Spain though. And reinstoring slavery in the Antilles was a dick move as well. Not to mention he was extremely guilty of nepotism in the way he handled who ruled his kingdoms.
