Omfg I’m losing it! My dream my prayers have been answered!!!!!!!
Sarah J mass posted on her insta about this woahhhh.
Lets guess character? Who’s gonna play go?
Does anyone else feel pieces of scenes and character personalities in songs they hear after having recently read ACOTAR books? I'd love to hear which ones really connect with you the most! These are a few that have stood out the most to me lately:
You should see me in a crown -- Billie Eilish (when Feyre visits the Hewn City)
More Time -- NEEDTOBREATHE (a song between Rhysand and Feyre at the beginning of the battles with Hybern, especially after the skirmish at Adriata -- for a while a sentiment they think past each other because Rhysand is so focused on everyone else's safety at his expense while Feyre is trying to convince him self-sacrifice isn't necessary. So the song has different meanings from each of their points of view)
Invisible string -- Taylor Swift (makes me think about what it might feel like to have a mating bond)
Follow You -- Imagine Dragons (reminds me of how Rhysand may have felt after Feyre comes to the Night Court from the Spring Court after Tamlin locks her in)
I'm excited to see which songs you all have been listening to!!
Here is what each character's name really means:
Feyre- beautiful/ fairy or elf
Rhysand- perfection/ bringer of darkness
Azriel- God is my help
Cassian- hollow, empty
Morrigan/ Mor- great queen
Amren- powerful, clever, logical mind
Elain- sun ray/ fawn
Gwyneth/ Gwyn- joy
Let me know if u want a part 2
I'm surprised some of them actually equal the character lol. I think I know where SJM gets her ideas for character's names from :)
Before I start, I want to put the disclaimer. This is a rant, but I will try to keep it as respectful as I can, But note this is my own personal opinion.
I know what you're thinking, why LadyMidnight, or if you've seen my profile, why Liz? We've already had to read your other Tamlin post and there are dozens of others.
And I acknowledge that. I'll try and keep this brief. Okay? Again, I'm sorry but I had to point this out. It was bugging me.
Soo, most of you, some of you, know that I didn't like ACOSF. It's probably my least favorite book of the series. I'm glad SJM went deeper with Nesta and Cassian, but she just had to beat a dead horse *cough* beast.
That's right. Tamlin. 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️
For those of you who don't know, in ACOSF Tamlin is said to have turned into his beast form and have gone crazy/wild. Preying on Lower Fae.
Great. Really helps Tamlin's imagine.
Seriously? We ended ACOWAR so nicely. Tamlin wished her happiness, he saved Rhys. Can we give the guy a break? But SJM decided to poke a hurt dog.
It doesn't even make sense. In ACOMAF, Tamlin doesn't break. Even though he'd gone through trauma, he didn't just give up. No. He worked to help his court. So I'd think that Tamlin would work to get his court back. Maybe that's just wishful thinking...
It was just poor planning. There are so many different Tamlins. There is the first one, the best, then the second one, the Tamlin that somewhat redeemed himself in ACOWAR, and now this Tamlin. The one who gave up.
Tamlin didn't give up in ACOTAR until Feyre was going to be in danger.
Now, if you have read all of this, here is a cookie. 🍪 No raisins. I promise this will be the last Tamlin post you see from me, er, not promise but hopefully wish. I know they get old. Quick.
Okay look the Tamlin from book 2 is not someone I support and I do not condone his actions BUT Tamlin from book 1 was a good man whose heart ached for even the enemies he killed. Sure he went through a lot at the end of ACOTAR but in the final scenes he did NOT change into this weird caricature of himself that actually sounds nothing like him save for his appearance, he was the same Tamlin but one with more hope and freedom. But this man saw the love of his life get tortured and then killed because of him, obviously he’s going to have issues! But issues like this require patience and communication which Feyre was terrible at. To be fair she was also going through PTSD but she could’ve said something after a few months when she was doing a lot better. Instead she turned bitter and cruel and used Tamlin’s unconditional love for her to break him down more. She used his broken mental state to justify her actions and felt no remorse, knowing full well what she was doing to him. He dared to hope again and she shattered all the remaining stability in his life. IDK about you but that was a total bitch move and I really hope Tamlin gets a mate ( one who deserves him) and that he gets to go back to being the person he was initially written as, even if slightly changed due to his experiences. Experiences shape people, but they don’t completely change a person into an unrecognisable different person! Let’s not do this simply for the sake of plot Maas.
AHH I just want to read the next book already T_T
I literally can't wait for the Azriel and Elain book! Ik the next book is the novella abt Mor, but i just NEED the next book. Literally this series has become part of my life...I think I'll just reread the series.
See you after my book hangover...
SMALL SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T READ A COURT OF SILVER FLAMES
Note: This is a rant, I will try to be as respectful as possible
So I am currently reading acosf, and Nesta is crying because she realizes she's hurting people and thinks she can't be better, Cassian then says, "Everyone deserves happiness." And that just made me kinda mad. Shouldn't Tamlin deserve happiness too? And before you all start hitting me with the 'Tamlin is evil,' let me go in depth.
You could argue that Nesta had a bad life. Her mother somewhat loved her and manipulated her, her father died 'because' of her, she was forced to be a High fae, etc. And I recognize that. But Tamlin went through things too.
Tamlin's people who in-saved, he was up under a curse for 50 years, he watched the women he love be tortured and killed. If we can feel for Feyre, we should be able to feel for Tamlin too.
Then in acomaf, SJM makes Tamlin evil to justify Feyre falling in love with Rhys. That book is about glorifying the Night Court and Rhys. There is a reason we all like Tamlin in acotar, because he is a good guy. And if we can forgive Rhys for what he's done. What about Tamlin?
I'm not saying that he should have locked Feyre up, I'm just saying your shouldn't hate the guy so much. And Tamlin deserves happiness too. In acomaf, that was so unlike Tamlin to lock her up. He let her go in acotar because he loved her and wanted her to be safe.
I mean, if your family or someone you loved was captured, tortured, and killed, wouldn't you want to keep them around?
Back to Nesta. Nesta had her redemption ark, this whole book. And it's worked, I actually like her. But I just felt that they were being hypocrites.
So now I just say there are two different Tamlins'. Tamlin #1, acotar, and Tamlin #2, the rest of the series.
Thank you for reading my rant.
Here is who I think should be the cast if there is an ACOTAR movie:
Rhys: Toni Mahfud
Azriel: Matthew Daddario
Tamlin: Christ Hemsworth
Amarantha: Bryce Dallas Howard
Elain: Florence Pugh
Some are really hard to find but some people on tiktok are perfect!!
@acourtofkayla for Feyre
You guys, I am so not kidding but, if you have read crescent city,
In it bryce says:
"At least he isn't some psychotic alphahole, who will demand a 3 day sex marathon and then call me his mate, and lock me in his house, and never let me out again."
I think that Sarah J mass made a reference to ACOTAR tamlin.
Like, I remember their sex marathons, and then he thought she was his mate once. He also locked her in the house.
I am so sorry for disturbing you guys' sleep at 1:04 AM in the morning
But, I am new to the fandom. and I absolutely adore Throne of Glass and A court of thorns and roses.
Please bear with me, this post may be a bit long.
I've searched, I've been unsuccessful, and now I'm hopeful that I might be able to find someone here. I've recently gotten into the ACOTAR series (recently as in I've read the first 3 books in two days... shamelessly) and I'm chomping at the bit to start up a roleplay in the universe!
On the off-chance that someone reading this is also interested in this roleplay (please oh please) I'd be happy to tell you a bit about myself:
- I'm a female roleplayer with about 12 years of experience (I'm 26) and I like to double with my partners. :) I write OCs and like to do OCxCanon pairings.
- I'm hoping to find partners that are 21+ for my own comfort level, but definitely not any younger than 18. IMO no one younger than 17 should even be reading these novels, ya feel me?
- I love some solid romance in my roleplays, but I'm also biiiig on angst. BRING ALL THE DRAMA!
- I don't have many non-no's on my list beyond the usual but I really like to focus on character/story development. I like sex as much as the next person (*beats off the Rhysand fangirls screaming in the background*) but I really don't want it to be the main thing the roleplay is about. I swear nothing kills a roleplay faster.
- I tend to match what my partner puts out, but my usual length for replies is 2-5 paragraphs per character.
- My cat Sushi likes belly rubs, butt scratches and cheddar cheese. She's the shit and I'm a shameless cat mom.
If anyone is at all interested I'd seriously love to chat with you and mix up some magic! :) I write over GDocs, Email and via roleplayerguild.com so please feel free to shoot me an email and we can go from there! My email is: email@example.com
