god I didn’t get the appeal of ben barnes but,,,, I’m on episode two and,,, i-
I've just seen the first three episodes of Shadow and Bone and I'm already just... so happy with the story.
Inej is PERFECT. Actually all the currently present Crows are perfect.
Also I'm pretty sure I'm about to start reblogging a LOT of stuff so anyone who wants to avoid spoilers please block #s&b spoilers, #sab spoilers and #shadow and bone spoilers I'll use all of them to be safe (though I'll only be using all three the first few days, after that I'll stick to just that first one cuz it's so annoying to type it all in full every time).

KAZ YOU IDIOT NO
IS THAT GENESIS LYNEA?????????
that train shooting scene is already amazing on its own but imagine how much greater it’s going to be in hindsight when we eventually get the reveal that jesper is a fabrikator
Fuck me, that war room table scene was everything!! 🥵
when Jesper said "yaaaas! time for a heist!" i felt that. finally some heist action!
i've just finished the serie and i'm exhausted and happy and tired and OMG THIS IS SO WELL DONE, I LOVE IT. the alinaxinej moment at the end made me cry so much.
alina when she destroyed the maps to be sent into the fold but then her entire unit was sent as well
i keep thinking about the behind the scenes clips with leigh bardugo, how she got emotional meeting the cast who's going to play her characters, seeing them in costume, seeing this universe that she made with her words being adapted to the screen. imagine how amazing it is to witness. for us readers it's already so exciting and wild to know who will play the characters you love and to finally see the amazing fantasy worlds you've read about in 8 episodes. but for leigh, it's her work. it's her actual characters she made and the stories she lovingly crafted over the years. and now she gets to see all of these in full life and color through the show, along with a large and very supportive fanbase who have also loved her books for years and were with the production every step of the way (from news of the adaptation to the actual premiere) that's just. wow. i'm so happy for leigh bardugo. and so happy for the cast, and us fans. shadow and bone is here, and it's a hell of a show. here's to hoping we see the rest of the stories unfold, and see more of the Grishaverse on our screens.
Alina my poor baby I just wanna give her a hug.
i believe in shadow and bone episode 5 supremacy
AAAGGGHHH LOVE THEM THATS IT THATS THE POST
Alright so I haven't had the chance to watch the show yet, which is TORTURE because I've had the majority of my first two hours of the day off of school, so I could've at least seen an episode by now
But I will be watching it sometime this weekend with friends, and y'all can expect to see lots of incoherent keysmashes
For the time being though here are my thoughts/predictions for what will happen, which include spoilers from the books below the cut
I'm calling it right now, the show is going to end with Nina betraying Matthias in order to save both their skins
I'm 99.99% sure the crows are going to try and kidnap Alina for kruge
They're going to fail though and probably get trapped in Ravka for a season 1 cliffhanger
I heard someone talk about a scene with Alina and the Darkling on a ship being all 😏 and uhh-- no thanks
From the 10 minute sneak peak and the Alex Meyer video, thank GOD for Mal's glow up, boi really changed between the book and the show
JESPER MY BOI he's probably going to mess something up potentially by gambling all their money and losing it and Kaz is gonna have a "I'm not mad, just disappointed"
Jordie?? Maybe?? In cryptic flashbacks?? I don't think we'd get anything with him in season 1 other than a few cryptic moments
Kaz and the Darkling are never gonna be in the same room at once, they will get EXTREMELY close to meeting but I think the fans would be too powerful if Kaz and the Darkling ever encountered each other
NIKOLAI BETTER FRICKEN BE CASTED SOON ALONG WITH MY BOI WYLAN OR IMMA RIOT
The Apparat is going to haunt my nightmares after this
And final thing, like... Kaz and Inej and Jesper all speak Kerch??? Inej probably speaks Suli and Jesper probably speaks some Zemini but none of them speak Ravakan??? As far as I'm aware?? So I'm hoping for some sort of charades scene in which Kaz has to pantomime to Make that he's looking for Alina
