from what i can understand about zant’s history, he was supposed to be King and everyone kept telling him he was, and then at the last second they’re like “u kno what, i change my mind fuck u” and suddenly he’s not next in line anymore.
and that would fucking suck?? especially for someone who’s autistic (like me) and can’t react properly when something they thought was gonna happen doesn’t actually happen at all. i flinch whenever i think about it.
so its pretty understandable that he had a full blown breakdown after that shit went down
I agree. I’ve been thinking about that for a while now, and it sorta rubs my the wrong way. Like, can you imagine the disappointment and hurt he must have felt? I mean, we clearly get to see how much it upset him in TP.
Guh. I just feel like Zant has been so mischaracterized in the past, and I’m really glad that people have started analyzing his character more.
