Choosing a crush in a fandom
Guy 1: Honest, sweet, kind, loving, barely killed anybody

This screams Kaz Brekker tbh
when a character is empty-handed & surrounded by weapons pointed at them but they're calm and maybe even smiling, and the attackers are the ones who look afraid??? very sexy i think

Can't wait for the podcast! I like Az don't get me wrong he's the best boi ever, but acosf isn't his book and it's really annoying how ppl keep talkin about everything except nessian. Like hello? Did you all even read the book. 馃檮馃槶馃挃
Thank you! I adore Azriel and I really hope it鈥檚 his next book, but so many discussions of ACOSF end up fixated on that chapter and barely discuss Nessian, which made me so sad! We鈥檙e setting out to rectify that 鉂わ笍

Okay but I crave Helion and Nesta friendship. Especially after the scene with his pegasus and him teaching her spells while smiling at her 馃挄馃挄馃挄
I crave Helion and Nesta just so we get jealous protective Cassian tbh.
Let鈥檚 all remember this delightful snipped in ACOSF:
鈥淚n the end, Helion created the wards and keyed them to Nesta鈥檚 blood. A pinprick of it, courtesy of Truth-Teller, had done the job, and Cassian had found himself tensing at the sight of that little bead of red. Its scent.
It was an effort of will to tell his body there was no threat, that the blood was willing, that she was fine. But it didn鈥檛 stop him from grinding his teeth loudly enough that Feyre whispered to him beneath Nesta and Helion鈥檚 conversation, 鈥淲hat鈥檚 wrong with you?鈥
Cassian muttered back, 鈥淣othing. Stop being such a busybody, Cursebreaker.鈥
Feyre shot him a sidelong glance. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e acting like a caged animal.鈥 Her lips curved upward. 鈥淎re you jealous?鈥
Cassian kept his voice neutral. 鈥淥f Helion?鈥
鈥淚 don鈥檛 see anyone else in this room who鈥檚 currently holding my sister鈥檚 hand and smiling at her.鈥
The bastard was indeed doing that, though Nesta remained stone-faced. 鈥淲hy would I be jealous?鈥
Feyre鈥檚 laugh was a rustle of air.鈥

Any tea you can spill about the podcast?
Only that we will be focussing on Romantasy books and that we will be discussing one book per month, starting with ACOSF. We are PSYCHED to have you guys listen. Once we have launched our official Instagram page and website, we鈥檒l be taking questions and prompts of what you guys want to hear.
We truly believe Nessian has gotten a bit lost thanks to the Azriel chapter, so we鈥檒l be giving Nessian a LOT of love and attention in the first episode, which is exactly what those two deserve!

鈥淢ost nobles did not bother themselves with their staff, let alone their children. But she should have known that Cassian was not like the others.鈥濃攎mhmm Nesta sweetheart, Cassian is not like other men at all. He is a GOD.
鈥淐assian did not know what to answer, opening and closing his mouth without a sound like the fishes that lived in his lake.鈥 馃槀馃槀
鈥淪top talking and take your shirt off.鈥濃攖hat is hardon material right there. Poor Cassian is going to have a heart attack
鈥淭hen I will take responsibility for my actions.鈥 he squeezed her hand鈥攊dk why but him squeezing her hand is everything here
That was the worst kind of punishment, to be given the illusion of what a married life with Nesta could be.鈥攃hoo choooo. All aboard the angst train 馃殏
Thank you for this lovely update, especially given you鈥檝e been juggling exams and studying 馃槱 I hope they went ok?
A/N: Hey, sorry for the hiatus. Uni has been a bigger bother than usual and my next exams will be starting next week, so I was freaking out studying lmao. But after my exams are over I have an one month break, so I鈥檒l try to update more regularly!!
You can check here Pemberley鈥檚 Lake, Hooked on You, Smells like petrichor and paper and The Sound of Music, part one, two, three and four of my Nessian Pride and Prejudice AU.

A Midsummer Night鈥檚 Dream
Nesta鈥檚 mood perfectly matched the weather.聽 The sky was clear, the sun shone brightly and a soft breeze caressed her face. She made a mental note to send a prayer to the Mother later to thank for blessing all her outings at Pemberley with clear weather.
Even that rainy afternoon was deserving of a spot in her prayers.
Nesta felt her cheeks warming and hoped it was mistaken for the hot weather instead of her scandalous thoughts.
It also did not help that the object of her affections was right in front of her, smiling so much she could see his dimples.
After assuring her friends, Cassian鈥檚 friends, Cassian and even his ever caring staff that she was not in the threat of coming down with a cold 鈥 she did stay a whole day resting inside after all 鈥 they had all moved outside to the garden, where they found the staff鈥檚 children having a friendly game of pall mall.
Nesta had been surprised when the kids had run towards Cassian, greeting him with smiles and begging him to play with them. And she was surprised further when he agreed and raced the kids to where they had discarded the balls and mallets.

Embers & Light (Chapter 37 teaser no.4)
Notes: Another E&L teaser because it鈥檚 Wednesday and I鈥檝e had a lot of requests. I鈥檓 hoping to post on Sunday and I鈥檓 currently on schedule--watch this space! FYI this has smutty content (kind of)...
鈥淣ot for you,鈥 Nesta clipped, banishing the salacious image from her mind. Cassian鈥檚 eyes flicked up to her in surprise, the dilated pupils narrowing slightly, as if her words had shut something down. 鈥淢y neck,鈥 she surmised with a snort. 鈥淪top thinking about it.鈥
But she shivered as his eyes fell to her neck again. Couldn鈥檛 help it. Couldn鈥檛 stop remembering how it had felt as his teeth grazed his teeth over her pulse. How he had sucked it into his mouth, as if he were trying to drink the very life of her until they were one beating heart鈥攈er life fluttering completely at his mercy.
鈥淥nly if you do,鈥 Cassian vowed hoarsely. He stepped even closer鈥 until his torso brushed against hers. A predatory focus narrowed his movements wholly towards her. He raised a hand to her neck and slowly鈥攖orturously鈥攄rew a path with a calloused thumb down the curve of her neck, from behind the shell of her ear all the way down to her collarbone. 鈥淗ave you been thinking about it? About my lips on your neck?鈥
Breath hitched in Nesta鈥檚 throat, a fist closing around her windpipe. But she wouldn鈥檛 let him win, not now.
鈥淗ave you been thinking about my hand on your cock?鈥 Nesta rallied back, but the words were tight rather than brusque.

Hi fave fanfic author! Just dropping by to wish you a great day 馃槉 Also, I just want to ask: What do you do when you feel like you鈥檝e reached a dead end in your story? Like I have so many good prompt ideas but when I try flesh it out, I feel like the plot has no direction so I end up not writing anything 鈽癸笍
Hello! This is a great question. I think what I do when I have a prompt is tie it to a theme or a particular image in my mind so there鈥檚 a real direction to the writing. I give it all a vibe and then go from there. The rest tends to happen organically.
I think what is helpful with prompts is to keep it small. You don鈥檛 need an entire world building fic around it. It鈥檚 a snippet in time and most probably a one-shot, right? So keep it to one. Don鈥檛 be tempted when people ask you to continue but there鈥檚 no fluid storyline in continuing it. With E&L there鈥檚 a clear trajectory and storyline: Nesta鈥檚 healing journey and Cassian鈥檚 addressing his unworthiness. There needs to be a motivating principle for a multi chapter fic, otherwise you鈥檙e just writing fluffy scenes that have no context.
I don鈥檛 know if that makes sense! If you need help, message me with a prompt and I can try and help 鉂わ笍鉂わ笍
