I just had a thought.  

Remember when Homura crushed the doll that killed Charlotte and how some people thought that the doll was the Witch's true body?

Hear me out on this:

There is the theory that Charlotte's mother was dying of cancer, and Charlotte used her wish for a cheesecake to share with her mother.  But she ate it all, and when her mother died, she realized that she could have used her wish to save her mom, thus resulting in her Witchification.

That doll that Homura stepped on may actually represent Charlotte's mother, and there may have been a bond between the Witch and the doll. This 'bond' represents the relationship Charlotte had with her mother while she was in the hospital and may represent the hope that they could spend their time eating sweets together if she had survived the surgery.  And when you recall the theory that Charlotte wished for cheesecake to share with her dying mother but it all for herself, it makes more sense, as cheese symbolizes her mother.  This would explain why when the doll was crushed, Charlotte died.  Because when her mother dies, she realized she could have used her wished to rescue her mom.  So when the doll died, so did Charlotte.

As for Charlotte's second form, that represents the cancer her mother had, and I suppose it could also represent Charlotte's selfishness: a sweet girl on the outside, but selfish and gluttonous on the inside.  It's regeneration can also symbolize the power of cancer, and her first form doesn't fight to show her helplessness against the cancer

Does any of this make sense?
Just a theory I had about Charlotte, so take it with a grain of salt.

it does make sense, but one detail... charlotte was killed when homura blew her up, not when the doll was crushed ^^; hehe

It's confirmed in production notes: Charlotte wished to have cheesecake with her mother. they did. Both of them. Then her mother died, and Kyubey asked Charlotte why she didn't just wish for her mother to be better--which she didn't because she thought it impossible. Despairing at the realization, Charlotte's Soul Gem shattered.

It seems like I see you everywhere; tvtropes, the wiki,

It really make some sense, but if Charlotte really wants to make more emphasize in her regret just like how the Witch transformation works, then it's more about her having that tea party with the doll. But there isn't any implication that she regret not sharing that cheese and the sick mother for that matter, but more into her frustration of not finding any. I found it really weird in that sense.

I also curious with that runes in her barrier that said she really likes Homura.

But why is her nature tenacity then?
DAS58 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Why do you think then? I'm more into the wake of her gluttonous secondary nature, like in her Witch card that said she desires everything so doesn't give up on chasing after what she wants. Like I said about her cheese obsession, the way the card's information puts it makes it more make sense that she's a very stubborn glutton that has no care of anything else.

...I make her seems so villainous that way...

And about her rune that said she likes Homura... do you think they actually know each other, maybe from their time in hospital?

It doe make sense, but maybe 'Charlotte' did share the cheese cake with her mom, and her mother died a week later after complications in surgery. 'Charlotte' might have been conflicted to share the cheesecake, but she did it because she loved her mom. 'Charlotte' might have gotten cancer as well and wanted sweets badly- yet she also doesn't want them because it reminded her of the time she shared the cheesecake with her mother. In the end, she realized she could have saved her mother so that they could spend more time together and would later become a witch.

That's my take on it, although your theory is good too. :nod:

Now that I think about it, you may be right about Charlotte getting cancer after her mom did. Do you think I'm right about the significance of the doll?
