“To the blessed darkness from which we are born, and to which we return.”
My initial thoughts after reading this:
🔥LUCIEN deserves better.🔥
🖤AZRIEL deserves better.🖤
⚔️CASSIAN deserves better.⚔️
Ahhhhh I fear that my opinion on certain people might anger some, but ¯_(ツ)_/¯.
Now before anything else……let me explain.
🛑WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW!!!🛑
“You know nothing about how I’m feeling,” Nesta snapped.
Ummmm actually, Nesta, I’m pretty sure Feyre knows exactly how you’re feeling.🤔 But sure, it’s not like Feyre herself didn’t also feel death when her neck was snapped by Amarantha, after being brutally tortured through deadly trials. It’s not like Feyre didn’t also have to deal with PTSD and depression for months—and unlike you , she didn’t have people trying to help during that time until Rhys came along.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure Feyre suffered way more than both Nesta and Elain combined. I get it. The war left Nesta horribly traumatized and different people have different ways to cope with it, but if she’s going to do things her way, don’t drag everybody else into it, say…….like using up so much of Rhys and Feyre’s money?!?! I respect Nesta’s independence and strength, but she can also be a huge jerk.😢 Especially with Cassian!!! Poor Cassian wanted to give Nesta a Winter Solstice gift, but she brutally rejected it and just……my heart hurts so much for Cassian.🥺💔😭
BUT rant aside—I really am super curious to read about Nesta & Cassian’s story in ACOSF. We’re definitely going to learn more about what goes on in Nesta’s head (I mean, we all are curious xD) and some character development is gonna be shown, hopefully.🤞 With that said, I don’t think I can ship Nesta with Cassian, because Cassian deserves so much more love.😭 He’s been alive for more than 5 centuries, so Nesta’s not the only one dealing with trauma. Although the cauldron definitely did something to Nesta to change her so much, so her actions may not be all her fault🤔
AHHhhh I’m contradicting myself so much now.
“The Band of Exiles.”
“That’s what we call ourselves. The Band of Exiles.”
Oh Lucien.🥺 The characters here forget that Lucien also suffered during Amarantha’s reign and afterwards when he was alone with Tamlin, while Feyre was with the Inner Circle. And then you have Elain annoying the Hell out of me. She acts all cold to Lucien and complains about him not knowing her, but she herself doesn’t even give him the chance to!!! Lucien was forced with the mate bond as much as Elain was! Arghhh it just makes me so mad how Elain treats him. Lucien is 10000x times better than Elain will ever be.
I’m so happy that Lucien became friends with Jurian and Vassa. Feyre is surprised that Lucien doesn’t want to stay in Velaris, but I mean…….it’s pretty obvious that the others don’t really want him there, except for Feyre. Elain ignores him and 👿🤬😤 sigh I just really hope we get some more character development with Elain, because right now, I could care less about her. Lucien so deserves someone much better than Elain.(I’m shipping him with Vassa actually, although we don’t know much abt her, she still sounds better than Elain) And unless SJM manages to change how I feel about Elain, I totally do not ship her with Azriel either because again,Azriel deserves better than her.🔥
“A broken male.
Broken from his own actions, his own choices.”
Oh yea and when it comes to those who suffered, it goes for Tamlin, too. Of course, Tamlin made some terrible mistakes (and regrets it), but when Rhys said those cruel words of “I hope you live the rest of your miserable life alone here” to Tamlin…..I actually hated Rhys a lot right then and there. Like the guy knows already that he screwed up badly, you don’t need to add on to his already self-loathing by telling him that! I hope somewhere and somehow……Tamlin finds happiness, too.🥺
Well, ranting is over now xD. If you read all that, I applaud you.😅
Otherwise, I did love seeing the rest of the gang having fun and somewhat at peace after the war with Hybern. They do deserve that at least, before the next problem arises, with the mortal queens and all.
The sneak peak to A Court of Silver Flames, gets me excited for February 2021, so hopefully, we won’t be disappointed.🤞
What we need is change……
There must be change if there will ever be hope for the ships.
