Anonymous asked: Why do you like Betty? She's so selfish :/
OK WAIT ANON HOLD UP
Betty is not selfish!!
ive seen so many people complain about how she didn’t let simon die and wait a fricking minute here man
"But Simon really wanted to die!1!!"
yes but if your fiance was dying you wouldnt want that to happen
when someone you love is about to die you do everything you can to stop that
remember when in the episode “The New Frontier” when jake wanted to die and finn didn’t let him? because theyre brothers and he loves jake and doesn’t want to let him die?
was finn being selfish there?
even simon said he would let betty try to save him.
"If I don’t let her try, then what am I? What am us?"
"Why didn’t she just stay and help Simon instead of jumping through the portal?"
the thing is, she knows she leaves simon. simon told her himself.
remember, Betty wrote a book about time and space.
she says “Where would I go without you?”
she knows she will leave Simon, because the timeline dictates that. she doesn’t know how.
but she figures it out and jumps through the portal. its this weird time-loop thing. kinda hard to explain. long story short, betty figured out why she left him.
she’s shown to be incredibly smart throughout the episode, figuring out solutions really quick.
as an added note, simon was going to die really quick, so she didn’t have much time to think things through. its a critical situation, after all. she didn’t even have time to figure out why there was a magic carpet, or a talking dog, because she just had to act fast.
tl;dr betty is not selfish stop
