My Ranking Points
Honestly, I just hated Nicola from the beginning.
Same tho… and not just because she stole hort from Sophie, though that is a factor.
Same!!! She is so arrogant!!!!!!! and she is super entitled to EVERYTHING!!!!!!! and you can’t date your history professer as a first year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That made me soooooooooooooooo mad
Tbh, I think I threw up when I read that part
Haha, lol! I’m reading QFG rn and I just read when Hort says “I don’t just like skinny blond girl you know” and I flipped out! Then sophie said “hes already got a true love and it’s not like shes gojng anywhere” and this was me… “WHOOOO you go Sophie! Stand up for Hort the man you know you love deep inside!” Sometkmes i feel like I have a problem….
Ikr? She acted like she was so much more important than the other characters, even though they’ve obviously been through much more than she has.
I don’t “hate” nicola, and we gotta cut Soman some slack, I mean the books are amaze and hort and Sophie get together in the end. SPOILERS
But Nicola did kinda jump in and act like she’s the boss- doesn’t even have a personality, and going after Sophie’s dude!
I love Hermione and Annabeth, who are similar to Nicola. But she was so arrogant, and I couldn’t deal with that.
I ship Hophie to death, but I absolutely adore Nicola. She is a strong, talented, clever, feminist black woman, and she saved everyone on the Igraine. She couldn’t have “stolen” Hort from Sophie, because Hort is not Sophie’s property. They were not dating, and Sophie had rejected Hort multiple times before that point. Hort was trying to move on, and Sophie slowly realized she did not want to be without him. I personally believe she should’ve gotten a much better ending in Book Six, instead of being Rose Tico-ed. Hort only taught History because literally no one else would take the job. And we forget, not all the Readers taken from Gavaldon were the same age. For all we know, Nicola could have been fifteen. Nicola had read the Tale of Sophie and Agatha and had expectations, like everyone who has ever read the story. She had seen Sophie as vapid and selfish, and someone who did not deserve Hort, who Nicola herself liked a lot. Y’all can’t tell me if you got to meet your celebrity crush (who is maybe a couple of years older than you) and got a chance to date them, you would not jump at that chance. Hophie was not yet a thing, and Sophie was defending territory that she did not have. She came across as arrogant because everyone else didn’t know what to do and she had to take charge. She is not entitled, she was working class back in Gavaldon, and had to deal with rude customers, her idiot brothers, and gender prejudice every single day. Bryannah, why would you flip out when Hort said he didn’t only like skinny blond girl? I am confused. And when Sophie said “He’s already got a true love” (can someone tell me what page that was on btw? I don’t remember reading it. Thx!), she was basically saying Nicola should back off because she wants Hort’s attention instead of a girl who was interested in him from the beginning. I am not trying to bash Sophie here, she is an amazing queen, but even queens make mistakes. If she and Hort had been anything mire than friends, Sophie would’ve been justified, but she had rejected him several times. I love Nicola, and she should’ve dated a GIRL instead of YOSHI—
Yes, I guess I just don’t really like Nicola… she is a pretty cool character just not my favorite 🤷♀️
