    Feyre being presented as a heroine is my villain origin story.

    I feel like when the ACOTAR show comes out, people are going to perceive Feyre like they do Elena from TVD? They both suffer from the same narrative/structural problems. Without Feyre’s narration rationalizing her dumbass behavior, the audience just has to sit through Feyre making the same exact mistake fifteeen billion times like we did Elena. And by the end, I was begging for Elena to be killed off, and the show literally shelved her character. People loved Katherine more than they did Elena, which says a lot bc Katherine was most def a villain.

    There’s also major parallels between Bonnie/Elena + Lucien/Feyre, the two POC sidekicks who have to risk their body and soul to protect the white damsels. Or what happens when Feyre and Rhys fuck over the Summer Court — again, the only prominent POC in the story? Or when Feyre pulls that shit on Lucien in the Spring Court after he’s already been assaulted by another white woman, and white man?? Like, I do not see Feyre sitting well with POC audiences, or just people perceptive enough to notice the pattern of POC being humiliated, debased, and used by a white woman. It’ll be interesting to say the least. Tarquin being used by Feyre, ogling over her? Helion being extremely hypersexualized? Thesan being ignored by the story all together, the Illyrians being brutes...like that don’t look weird to y’all? It’s going to look much worse on the screen.

    Did you all see the size of CC2? It’s a BIG BOI.

    I am excited. Might have to take some vacation time just to get through that thing.

    I feel like Lucien Vanserra is suicidal. There, I said it. Him and Bryce are similar in SO many ways that I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that after all that he went through, he would have tried to end himself.

    Rant time

    nothing should be surprising me about this fandom and some of the terrible takes that some people have, but if you are willfully ignorant about the nature of Elain’s trauma, stop talking about it. If you fail to understand that Elain’s ‘turning’ was an allegory of rape, and that her being thrown out of the Caudron, emerging basically naked, with guards snickering at her ravished nudity was sexual assault, then that’s on you. It’s crystal clear that SJM, by way of Feyre, set up Elain’s turning as rape. Not Nesta’s. Elain’s. Whatever she experienced, whatever happened to her was akin to sexual assault. Everyone understood that. Feyre understood that. Lucien understood that, since his first act was to cover her nakedness with his cloak. 

    Haven’t people considered that Elain’s reluctance to wearing pants, to dressing in revealing clothing, to discussing sexual matters is based on her experience in the Cauldron and not her ‘prudish’ ways. Elain and Nesta were violated, their humanity stripped away. Nesta’s approach and reaction to that was different from Elain’s. Elain also lost someone she loved because she was turned. Elain had her whole life planned ahead of her, and it was snatched away due to the violation that was perpetrated on her. 

    Is it so difficult to understand that maybe she doesn’t want to talk to Feyre about her new cycle because she might be dealing with something like body dysmorphia? That she now has a new body, which functions differently, looks differently, feels differently from what she used to be? That she is also mated to a male that she doesn’t want and didn’t ask for, and any mention of changes in her sexuality is traumatic for her? That talking about her period is just another reminder that she would be ‘ready for the taking’ and ‘breedable’ by someone she isn’t interested in?  

    Elain doesn’t exist to satisfy Azriel’s kink. She doesn’t exist to be mated by Lucien. Elain was in charge of her own sexuality before, when she decided to sleep with Graysen. She isn’t a prude. She lost her virginity to him on her own accord and seemingly enjoyed the experience, She is a person who wants to make her own decisions about her body and about her sexuality. 

    Is it so difficult to imagine that maybe whoever she finally ends up with will be the one to give her confidence, find her new body beautiful and love her for what she is? That perhaps a healthy relationship and sex shouldn’t be just accommodating Azriel and his sexual habits, but finding a way to be comfortable and happy together? And even if it’s Lucien, then it’s the same scenario--finding a path to commonality and mutual satisfaction.

    It’s so fucking twisted, frankly, when I read how Gwyn is ready or would want to be ‘kinky’ with Azriel, and Elain is such a prude, she could never. Why is it always all about Azriel? Is anyone expecting HIM to turn nice and vanilla for the sake of Gwyn? or Elain? No? Why? Because he is a man and the woman must play along and satisfy his wants? Anyone expecting HIM to get snipped, so he won’t have winged children that could kill the mother? Or is it just the female and her ‘Illyrian-baby-appropriate’ pelvis that matter?

    Feminism in this fandom always dies upon Azriel’s dick.

    PS his fucking kink might be cuddling for all we know, because he is starved for touch and his mother never held him.

    If SJM spent half as much energy loving other characters the way she loves Feysand, ACOTAR would have the potential to surpass ToG.

    a tiny psa for all my new followers: if you’re here for anything other than book critique, starting on February 15th, you can blacklist the tags “myth and kat read hosab”, “anti hosab”, and “anti ccity”, as those will be quite busy tags while i do my live-read of the book with Myth
