* ShipperOnDeck: Kolya ships Myshkin/Aglaia, and Nastasya's friend Darya (who initially advocated for DumpThemAll to Ganya and Rogozhin's offers) avidly ships Myshkin/Nastasya, seeing the gentle prince as Nastasya's best chance at happiness and healing. But the ultimate shipper is actually Nastasya herslef, who supports Myshkin/Aglaia and actively schemes to bring it about, despite being in love with Myshkin herself, in her ''very'' twisted version of IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy.

His efforts to "save" them, however, are usually less than successful.
