Until this day it's a mystery why Nesta hates Feyre that much. And I mean hate. I can't wait to see what kind of sob story SJM will spin out. Hooray.
Seriously though, I really don't get it? Jealousy? But jealous of what exactly? The hatred has to come from somewhere right? And unless Nesta is jealous of Feyre hunting, killing, feeding, clothing, ENSURING THEIR SURVIVAL EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Then I don't know how "jealousy" can be a reason for that. It's a convenient excuse, that's what it is. Maybe Nesta just hates Feyre for no reason?? I'm genuinely confused, and Nesta is the worst example of an elder sister I can find. My own elder sister cares for me, helps me and shows that she is concerned about me everyday. When Feyre returned from the Spring Court in ACOWAR, bruh was Nesta not even relieved.
Honeslty though, they should have made Elain the youngest sister. Elain ACTED like the youngest, the one who needed to be pampered the most.
Yes she was traumatised, and yes we should not compared her trauma to others but (I won't name who) there are people who have gone through WORSE than her and we don't see them being a general b*tch to everyone. Even BEFORE she went through her trauma (Made into Fae), she was nasty, selfish and lazy. "I hate chopping wood. Besides Feyre, you're so much better at it!" "I will do no such thing!" <-- laziness at its finest. At least Elain is decent when it comes to manners. Nesta doesn't come across as "deep" and "dark" and "mysterious" and "badass" to me -- she comes across as petulant and childish in the FIRST book, and inappropriately snarky in the following books (I swear her personality changed between the first and the second book but either ways she's just really unpleasant.
I actually -- agree. Except about the part where "even though she loves Feyre" Hmm I'm not sure if such a -- such a creature is capable of love. Oops. I really really dislike Nesta. By that, I mean I HATE her. Honestly I don't get what Cassian even sees in her but to each their own I guess. I'm fine if you guys love her, but I just find her to be selfish and annoying. It's always ""What's that?" Nesta demanded." or ""I don't care." Nesta said flatly." I mean, even Elain is (kinda) better than her. If anything, I wish the next books could have been about Elain -- or better yet, someone more interesting. I feel bad for whoever is going to end up with Nesta (definitely Cassian...)
Also I get that Feyre is not supposed to go "Oh I'm the most beautiful one" but after THREE books of the same "Nesta is devastating, Elain is the MOST beautiful" I get kinda... tired of it. Like, yeah, I get it, I get that you're "stunned" every time you look at them, but better get used to it since you'll be stuck together for eternity... I'm curious -- if Manon (TOG) and Elain were to meet, who would be the most beautiful one? Let's not forget Mor. Or even Nesta I suppose. Heck, Azriel should be here. Most of whom have been described, in one way or another, as "the most beautiful person I have ever seen."
My favourite is Feyre. She kept the entire family together, and I never forget how she had to teach herself to hunt -- she literally ensured her family's survival. I get that everyone suffers differently, but some part of me never forgave Nesta for... just giving up. I appreciate how different she was, but I didn't really like her at first. But I grew to like her and Elain over time :)
