I dunno how I just realized Lapis' last name is "Tenebrae" which translates to "Darkness" in Latin.

PSA: The idea that corsets could be so tight you would have trouble breathing is a myth.

Then why haven't they gotten back in fashion?

They're both messy bitches but in a sort of complementary way and I absolutely need more of this.

Because they're expensive and take a long time to put on?

...PROGRESS!!!

It nice to see how Lapis is both shocked and somewhat confused(+other slightly positive emotions) when the MC reveal that she knew all along her plans instead of recoiling/hating/fearing her due to disgust from revealing her true nature/plans....

Lapis is faltering(Losing some determination and having her heart go doki doki for the MC) but she is still determined to go with her original plan...Lapis is also not willing to let MC to ever die even when she is willing to die for her plan ('When the time I'll be sure to let go of your hand')

RIP Game protagonist/heroine...even though I like you and would agree with the idea of a poly relationship with all 3 of you being happy together...there might not be enough space for you...Hope you find someone else that is just as wonder in the future T_T

The sad thing is I actually agree with Lapis plan (just 75% of it- I prefer no innocent people die and Lapis not dying to take the fall to not be part of the plan) due to knowing that just because your a commoner/poor...doesn't mean your a good person. If the commoner side has a valid excuse for a revolt then their justice is valid but their reasons are not enough [feel free to disagree] and the low-tier nobles are even helping them just for an attempt to gain more power (A.K.A-scumbag nobles that probably abuse commoners)

Lapis previous adopted little sister like some comment suggest/theorize could have been killed by the commoner revolting side...possibly aid by some scum nobles to let them have the chance to kill said previous future-seeing sister. Yeah...there is a small part desire to help the prince and the kingdom become stable, purging the rotten inside the kingdom(Scum nobles) but I think more than 50% of her motives is revenge for her previous adopted sister (said little sister probably used her future-sight to save Lapis' life but died) XD

The main question is:
How are they going to solve the commoner revolt issue + How is the MC going to change things with her In-game knowledge??

The corset being too tight and how it is myth is probably true, I seen similar comments many years ago from other random people.
Though this myth might have came from misinformation/false ideas from people about the past or hearing story from women at that time period and making assumptions (Probably men at that time that weren't thinking critically)...I mean Corset are probably well-fitting but it unlikely to cause breathing problems...though it might restrict a person movement just slightly I guess.

I guess there are some women or family that tried make the lady/person in question wear a very tight corset to make them look skinny in an attempt to try to appear more attractive beyond what is considered healthy or safe (bonus suffering point if their body type is just slightly fat/thicc XD).
I guess some corset can be uncomfortable if said Corset is not designed for their body type/hand me down or if they been wearing them for a long time=then some men might hear women might complaint about it and get wrong idea + spread them???

A proper historian can give you a better accurate summary about the reason for why this myth exist I guess but there are bunch of myth floating around in the world, Example:

Lemming kill themselves by running off cliff (No, Disney forced them to run off cliff and film the poor rodents dying for views)
The Alpha and Beta wolf myth science study that an research discovered had false information due to not realizing the group of wolves were an family+children instead of an random group of wolves...he had hard time trying to get rid of the Alpha+Beta myth XD
Gold fish have short memory of only 10 to 30 seconds
etc. etc. etc.

Why does anything go out of fashion? Sometimes there are logical reasons, other times it's just changing trends. Certainly one reason they aren't in fashion today is because of mainstream media constantly pushing the myth that they're some patriarchy-enforced torture device. For other reasons, Google is your friend.

They're both messy bitches but in a sort of complementary way and I absolutely need more of this.

Genuine romance between messed-up people is the best kind of romance fiction, and that's a hill I'm ready to die on.

Cause they’re a lot of work. And if you over tightened it it can do actual damage, including damaging your spine. Basically people took it too far, hurt themselves or others and the corset took the rap.

What's the commoner purge plan? Killing all the commoners or killing all the ones with political influence?

Can we give a huge kudos to whoever did Natori's makeup and hair, I was floored when she appeared with hair down like that

Oh yeah agreed, both characters were incredibly attractive this chapter.

OMG…,the final drawing of chapter 11 is… breathtaking.
Natori and Lapis deserve some happiness! I trust Neko Tarou to find a way for these two WITHOUT killing half of the Jewel kingdom population… And I don’t care if this is a trope, a reverse trope or whatever. I want these two to be together!
Art gorgeous as usual. Faces, expressions, dresses, background. Wow.

If Lapis kills all the commoners, that means they'll have more bargaining power with regard to fair employment. Heh.

(I don't think Neko Tarou actually thought about that)

When the most painful chapter comes, it'll be worth it and I'm sick to think that was a good thing.
