hmm well i had intended to read before bed, but it appears I have spent the remainder of my Sunday evening in the Utena Zone instead. no regrets

Because like ultimately, both are hurt & confused teens forcefully projecting their worst impulses onto one another... I guess it does come down to Prince and Witch archetypes all over again. When you think you are a witch4prince and can't imagine being girl4girl 😔🌹😔

it's just fascinating to me comparing this framing with juri & shiori's perceptions of each other as so unequally matched. to also have this imagery from the black rose antagonists setting up the two as
juri=noble, beautiful, dangerous.
shiori= harmful insect, venomous.

+also this bit from later in the same episode:
Mikage: The venom of the insect has begun to take effect on the noble rose.
Mamiya: Soon the rose will hand its thorns to us.

although in the western philosophical tradition agape is generally privileged over eros, often framed as the superiority of a love that is based on an apprehension of ideal characteristics versus a love that is based on particular characteristics, i think there is something praiseworthy, and i will state more strongly: holy about the act of loving something for the characteristics it actually has. to love something for the visible hammer-strokes of creation, so to speak, is to be close to God because God has created everything in the world not in its ideal type but in its distinct peculiarity, in all its accidental majesty
