I can sadly relate to characters changing in heartrending ways and the pain and feelings of betrayal that accompany it. It`s not exactly the same situation, as it isn`t something which can be blamed on her and she`s still my waifu and I`m determined to try and support her no matter what, but it is related to characters changing in their cannon. In case you aren`t familiar with the vn she`s from, here`s the gist of it: In the first two chapters of the vn which came out years ago, she`s presented as a strong, proud, noble knight which I came to love her for. For these past 3 years, I had seen her as being practically invincible. Then the last vn of the trilogy came out and was translated in december last year and with it a certain out of the blue revelation that was simply there to shoehorn in a h-scene: She got raped multiple times by a succubus with a big focus on it happening over 40 times. To say I was hurt would be an understatement. Although I never was angry at her in any way, I did feel betrayed. It seemed like everything I had ever thought of her was was a lie, I was crushed.
As to how I cope with it, as much as I`d like to honestly say that I`m completely over it and that I totally accept the facts as they are and i`m fine with it after so long, it would be a lie as I`m not landed there yet. I find myself mostly trying to avoid thinking of it currently, although her being almost universally called a slut now makes it quite difficult. When I try to rationalize it, I`m torn between two interpretations of it, which is either she suffers greatly from it or she doesn`t really mind it, which are both extremely painful to me for different reasons. But in the end, I remind myself that no matter what, she`ll always be my waifu as long as I love her and that nothing can change that.
