I’d rather burn than boil.
I hope all the Tumblr folks who are pro-Fiona are actually just pro-Jessica-Lange because Fiona is a manipulative, power-hungry narcissist who deserves whatever comeuppance is heading her way (abbreviated list of wrong-doings: murdering the previous Supreme, murdering who she suspected was the upcoming Supreme, exploiting her daughter’s injury to get back at a rival, and framing said rival in a way that led to her wrongful execution). Jessica Lange, however, is a great actress and her charisma is what keeps me from full-on hating Fiona. That and the character’s ongoing struggles with having been such an awful mother to Cordelia, as exemplified by that scene with the woman and her stillborn daughter. Even if she did use Delia’s injuries to frame Myrtle later on (goddammit, lady), her remorse in that scene still touched me.

I actually came across a post that said that Myrtle deserved to be die because ugly nerd girls shouldn’t fuck with perfect princesses - or something along those lines. Jeezus Christ. What a fuckin’ sociopath. #myrtle4eva
