* '''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 MacGuffinSuperPerson, 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.
* '''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.
