I just want to tell you that I think you've copped a really bad rap over the years. Countless teachers have painted you as the archetypal evil woman: cold, scheming, lustful for status but ultimately weak-minded and pathetic. They represent you as the villain of the piece, the pushy wife, the corrupter of moral order. Well, I think that's a load of bollocks.
Lady Mac, while it would be stretching things to call you a hero, I love that you were prepared to bust out of the role of subjugated wife and mother, to damn obedience to hell, and go for it, to grab for that chalice with both hands. You did your best to gee-up your husband to pursue his aims, but he couldn't follow through. Frankly, he was a bit of a dick. He was totally sucked in by the witches' prophetic riddle and happy to let others do his dirty work for him. What a loser. He would have made a lousy king, but you, you would have totally rocked it as queen.
It really sucks that so few people end up on Team Lady Mac, but I just had to let you know there's at least one of us out here flying your flag.
Your biggest fan.
