Rube/Human Shield: Meet The Mirror Image

The irritating thing about Elly's inability to feel good about Liz being Daddy's Little Anything is that she takes no more responsibility for it than John does his own driving Mike away. Just as his inability to accept anything other than obedience from people owing to an excessive love for hierarchical thinking made it hard to love a boy who challenges every little thing he says, Elly's lack of self-awareness blinded her to the fact that Liz was and is somewhat terrified of her and sees her as a lot of the reason why Mike was able to get away with so much. John is the better parent because he wants to at the very least severely injure the Looming Shape Of Pea-brained And Irrational Malice that haunts her subconscious mind and thus hampers her ability to trust people.

The reason that I mention this is that she doesn't just share his fairer hair and physical myopia along with his being slightly better with money than Ugly Brother. She also shares John's lack of patience with people who don't immediately give her what she wants and tendency to piss all over people who can do things they lack the patience to do. I'm certain that as we speak, Lizardbreath is confidently telling anyone who'll listen that people who are good at whatever Therese likes best are doomed to a life of misery and despair and no, she's not simply a jealous twat grumbling because other people are good at things she can't do.
