    Default Did Ding Mun Gwun's attitude toward CCY change after the latter's personality change?

    For years, Ding Mun Gwun hated her younger martial sister Chow Chi Yerk. Like the late Gei Hiu Fu before her, Chow Chi Yerk was a favorite of Ngor Mei Sect Leader Mit Jeut See Tai, arousing Ding's jealousy and resentment. Before Chow Chi Yerk was appointed Mit Jeut See Tai's successor, Ding Mun Gwun never let an opportunity to take Chow Chi Yerk down a peg pass. Immediately after Chow Chi Yerk ascended to the position of Ngor Mei Sect Leader, Ding Mun Gwun openly objected to Chi Yerk taking the leadership position.

    Ding Mun Gwun's attitude towards Chow Chi Yerk seemed to change after the latter's personality transformation following her aborted wedding with Cheung Mo Gei. Ding Mun Gwun seemed to like (or at least respect) the new, cruel and evil Chow Chi Yerk. It's almost as if she finally saw Chow Chi Yerk as worthy of Mit Jeut See Tai's mantle. Was this the case? Did Ding Mun Gwun hate goody goodies such as Gei Hiu Fu and the pre-Man On Pagoda Chow Chi Yerk, but have respect for ruthless women such as herself, her teacher Mit Jeut See Tai, and post-aborted-wedding Chow Chi Yerk?

    This is a toughie. 'Yi Tian' 2e actually contains no mention of Ding Minjun after the wedding of Zhang Wuji & Zhou Zhiruo; Ding wasn't in attendance for that, but she sent a present. (I may have missed something, of course; and then there's 3e, which I've only read selected bits from. I'd welcome hearing of Ding's fate from better-read posters.)

    What we do know of Ding's personality is that she's rather a coward (e.g. she feared Ji Xiaofu's martial ability), she tends to lower the tone of most conversations she participates in, and she has little true respect for anyone (even Miejue). (She did seem outwardly civil to Song Qingshu back when he was the golden boy of wulin, though; but Jinyong didn't describe her thoughts.)
