Do you guys read this from a distant perspective or go into reading the story with all your hate pent up and overfilled because that's no where near what happened.
She didn't have to sneak out she just chose too because she thought it would be less of a hassle. Malfurion never forbade her from going, just applied what was said to their people back on her that's it.
I never said that Malfurion forbade her, I just relayed what it looked like. We can have a debate over whether permission was there or not, but the fact remains that she kept her departure secret, as though she wasn't supposed to do it. The imagery of it is the issue, one of the Night Elves persistent issues when we get to the matters of substance and form.
Must be such an easy thing to see the person you have considered a daughter for thousands of years lying there looking dead and not lose it in some way. No we should have Tyrande walk up and just be like "Elune heal her immediately" and then not have a care in the world her daughter was about to die.
I'm not saying that Tyrande should be displaying levels of sympathy that can only be compared to Karl Urban's portrayal of Judge Dredd, but if she's breaking down in the middle of a situation like that, how can we expect her not to do that when the stakes are higher?
We can't. Which is why she can't be trusted to make those decisions under that sort of pressure. When the phone rings at 3a- ... 3pm, get someone else to answer it.
Malfurion also didn't freaking bail her out, he came because he knew she would come at happen to get there at the beginning of the fight and Tyrande still handled herself quite well and probably would have to begin with, but any notion of her husband showing up to help his wife is freaking terrible to happen.
Again, the imagery is concerning... and how did he know she was gone in the first place if she snuck out?
Why is it so wrong that Tyrande needs Malfurion in some way? She's loved him for what 10,000+ years and has always wanted him to stand by her more instead of sleeping so much? And now that happens and everyone is flipping there freaking lid about it.
One, as mentioned before, Malfurion was being used at the time as a bully pulpit against people who said that the Cenarion Circle should care about Ashenvale - and that's an issue I forgot on the first go round. Seeds of Faith
deliberately tiptoed around any matters involving the Horde.
Two, the freaking imagery. It looks like Malfurion is swooping in to save the day again, when Tyrande needed more than ever to prove herself as a leader. She didn't, the chance was stolen from her, and she was bungling it in the first place.
You and everyone else keep seeing things through your rage tinted eyes and immediately twist everything to be bad.
This statement really doesn't mean anything other than "I disagree with you, now shut up because you're wrong". I guess it's a clever way to preempt any argument that I'll ever made ever, but it's still logically bankrupt.
I get the feeling that the writers don't really have a solid, unanimous idea for what night elves act like and should be, and what their modern role should be or if they even should be able to get out of thinking in the past to create a modern role. And Tyrande is rather a symptom of this.
I think the matter is more that they have a different vision, and are going to go through with it - damn the consequences. Or at least, this is what "I used to love them" tells me. It tells me that they hear the complaints, they understand the complaints, but they don't really give a !@#$ about the complaints and are going to keep going.
