I’m neither an elriel or gwynriel fan as of right now. I’ve kind of been reading posts on both ships but I made an observation and I was curious about what you thought,
what do you think about Rowan telling Aelin they are not friends in Throne of Glass being similar to Azriel thinking he wouldn’t go as far as calling Gwyn a friend?
Personally, I don't think they're similar at all.
Rowan & Aelin didn't start off as friends in the same way that SJM's other main ships didn't. Rowaelin, Feysand, Quinlar & Nessian all have the same trope in common—Enemies-to-Lovers. (Or not necessarily enemies, but strong dislike)
The thing is, Rowaelin's relationship was strained from the moment they met. He tells her they're not friends, punches her, calls her useless, says she should've died years ago, etc.
All of that is part of them starting off as rivals so that SJM could then take that tension and develop it into something romantic. Just like with the other couples I mentioned above.
On the other hand, the part where Azriel says that he wouldn't call Gwyn a friend simply shows that there's nothing going on there. By Solstice, he's already spent some time with her when she was training with Cassian and even spent an hour with her during that oh so special "private lesson" and yet there's nothing there.
Basically, Rowan telling Aelin they're not friends contributed to the angst before the romance, whereas Azriel saying he wouldn't call Gwyn a friend establishes them as nothing but acquaintances in his mind.

ACOSF:
But Nesta smoothed his bunched brow, as if she could see those worries there. "Later," she promised. "We'll deal with all that later." Including the remaining queens, Koschei, and a still-looming war.
SJM basically handed the main conflicts of the next ACOTAR books to us on a silver platter with this line.
There will definitely not be a book where Azriel and Gwyn reform Illyria. Especially when Azriel wants nothing to do with them😂

Azriel in general:
Azriel donned the frozen mask he’d perfected while in his father's dungeon. “I don't know what you're talking about.”
Azriel’s smile was a slash of white.
The shadowsinger held her stare, his face unreadable.
The shadowsinger had a sense of humor. Dry and quiet, but… alone together, it came out far more often than it did amongst our group.
Azriel said coolly, “I don’t need to resort to threats.”
“Welcome,” was all Azriel said, his voice low, almost flat, as he extended a brutally scarred hand to me.
Azriel around Elain:
A faint smile bloomed upon Azriel’s mouth as he noticed Elain’s fingers white-knuckled on that fork, but he kept silent, focusing instead, as Cassian was subtly trying to do, on adjusting his wings around a human chair.
“I can help her,” said Azriel, stepping to the table as Elain silently rose. No shadows at his ear, no darkness ringing his fingers as he extended a hand.
Color bloomed high on Azriel’s golden-brown cheeks, but he inclined his head in thanks and led my sister toward the back doors into the garden, sunlight bathing them.
But Azriel only took Elain’s heavy dish of potatoes from her hands, his voice soft as night as he said, “Sit. I’ll take care of it.”
I'd never heard such a sound, deep and joyous.
I’d never seen his hazel eyes so bright, the hues of green amid the brown and gray like veins of emerald.
He chuckled, unable to suppress the impulse.
Azriel offered her a small smile that Elain quickly looked away from.

Fantasy book, fae, magic, kingdoms
DARK FAE in the third book that are EVERYTHING. The first book is meh but the second and third books are good. Specially the third cause of the dark fae. You should give it a try.
Well anon, you certainly caught my attention.
I'll put the series on my TBR for now!

What’s a book/book series that you will never stop recommending?
Personally, I haven't seen many people recommend this one but I really liked the A Good Girl's Guide to Murder trilogy by Holly Jackson.
I'm usually more of a fantasy/romance reader but that series had me hooked. Admittedly, the third book was not as good as the first two, but it was still a really great series overall that kept me on the edge of my seat!
Fun fact: I recommended it to my best friend (she's not a big reader but does pick up a book or two from time to time) who bought the books but hasn't read them yet🥲

Have you read the An Heir Comes to Rise series?? You should if you haven’t. The second and third books of the series are amazing.
I haven't heard of it. What's it about?👀

Azriel: I’m kind of crushing on someone, but I’m worried about telling you who it is because you’re not going to like it.
Rhysand: Just rip the bandage off.
Azriel: It’s Elain.
Rhysand: Put the bandage back on.

"The tale also sets up for the upcoming spinoff novels"
-SJM talking about ACOFAS
If ACOTAR5 is a Gwynriel book then where's their set up in ACOFAS?
Where's the introduction of Gwyn? I mean, Emerie was introduced so why not Gwyn too, right?
Where's the indication that Azriel only wants Elain for sex therefore they won't work out?
Where's the hint that Elain will end up accepting her bond to Lucien?

TUA - S3 Allison
Not gonna lie, I'm so mad at the way the writers wrote Allison this season.
I get it, she was mourning the losses of Claire & Ray and people grieve in different ways, but the moment she rumoured Luther and SA'd him, she crossed the line for me.
Also, the fact that they didn't even address the issue in any of the later episodes doesn't sit right with me🥴
