* '''Deconstructed''': Virginia doesn't mean to be stupid. In fact, she's not stupid, just naive. Maybe it's due to ValuesDissonance if she's in a different time and place than she usually is. Maybe it's due to her previously sheltered existence. Or maybe she's just under so much pressure being the MacGuffinGirl, BarrierMaiden, {{Miko}}, [[TheHighQueen Queen of Somewheria]], etc. that her nerves prevent her from thinking clearly; she's so worried about messing up that she ends up doing stupid things.

** Alternatively: Virginia's a virgin because she's always been unlucky at love, leaving her jaded, bitter, and cynical. She's also quite possibly too smart for her own good.

* '''Reconstructed''': But, she learns from her mistakes, and [[ComingOfAge becomes a more mature and wise person]]. She also learns what's acceptable and what's not for the culture she's in. And she gains more confidence and is able to fulfill her role more effectively.



* '''Enforced''': SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids
* '''Defied''': Virginia is very GenreSavvy, and learns her role quickly. It's sink or swim, after all.
* '''Invoked''': The BigBad hears about Virginia's VirginPower, and immediately pegs her as a NaiveEverygirl whom he (or his minions) can easily seduce, thus causing her to lose her power and her status.
