Sjm has written all of her male love interests to be “problematic” at best and I think acofas was introducing Cassian into that spotlight
I really can’t just brush off him insinuating that Nesta doesn’t deserve love
I can’t brush off that rhysand commanded her to sit and smirked at her fear while Cassian sat there and said nothing
I can’t act like he didn’t exchange lingerie with his ex lover in front of her
Not to mention the amount of times her thinks of Nesta as a “bitch” (#feminist🥰)
His character regressed in a big way.
“Eris is a sadist”
…not from what I’ve read
Meanwhile Azriel is a whole ass torturer for the Night Court
If Eris is only in acosf to be manipulated and used by Nesta for the IC’s gain I’m going to be pissed
If she had any ulterior motive to dancing with Eris aside from wanting to, I’m going to be pissed
If she sleeps with Eris just to make Cassian jealous, I’m going to be pissed
I think a part of Cassian becoming Nesta’s friend is seeing her pov and being more open and accepting because what happened to her, how she was villainized because of Feyre’s opinion, shouldn’t happen again. Therefore, Cassian shouldn’t judge Eris for not dragging Mor to the Autumn Court
I hope Nesta genuinely befriends Eris and because he’s Nesta’s friend, Cassian will be able to see him for who he is rather than who Eris has been made out to be
I don’t support someone using and hurting another person this way. Eris isn’t evil and it wouldn’t be justified.
Justice for Eris 😭
Feyre is just as much to blame, if not more so, as Tamlin is for her sisters being turned far against their will
Lucien called Eris a snake
Mor told Nesta to keep her forked tongue behind her teeth
people out here convinced nesta and eris are gonna end up together and are end game i wanna jump off a cliff
You had me in the first half ngl
Even if Cassian starts treating Nesta well in acosf… what does that really mean? They’re going to be away from the IC so??? His relationship with her takes a 180 when they’re alone together v. When he’s with his friends
I don’t want a single scene where Nesta has to worry how he’s going to treat her once they’re in the night court again
Nesta deserves better than the way Cassian treats her
I want Cassian to try to bring up how Nesta is “mean” to the IC/Feyre/Mor and for her to say
I just think it’s funny that Mor (who’s over 500 years old) always has a glass of wine in her hand and it’s quirky, is in a love triangle with Azriel and Cassian even though she prefers girls and it’s interesting, wears revealing clothing and it’s brave
But Nesta (who just turned 24) turns to alcohol and sex as a way to cope after war and the cauldron and watching her father die in front of her (his blood splashed on her damn face) and she’s an alcoholic… she’s a slut…. she’s a burden
That’s just kinda funny to me 🤨
If the fandom hates Eris so much because he slut-shamed Mor
I’d just like to remind everyone that the ic slut shamed Nesta a lot in acofas
Amren said Nesta fucked anything that moved and Rhys agreed
Cassian went to her home and her bedroom and sniffed loudly and shamed her for not changing her sheets and made a comment about how many men had been in there
Feyre had Rhysand track Nesta to a bar and asked her which man she intended to take home that night
Thank you but no thanks to the hypocrisy
The IC either forced Nesta to be around them or tracked her down and slut shamed her
let’s not forget extreme poverty and famine are fresher in Nesta’s memory than what it could ever be in Cassian’s, who was taken in by a queen as a child, over 500 years ago. And has been rich ever since, regardless of how he chose to live his life later. Cassian judges Nesta’s clothes, the state/tidynes of her little apartment, the apartment itself, the places where she drinks. However much of a low bastard he’s being viewed as by Feyre and Rhysand (who really are leagues richer than him), he still is rich, arrogant and disdainful. However much he choses to believe Nesta is a fancy arrogant bitch, she never had any more than him AND she genuinely is a poor sick orphan who owns absolutely nothing and is welcome NOWHERE.
And that’s something I don’t enjoy in these books, is that the own story contradicts itself. You can’t say Nesta is a posh bitch and Cassian a cheap bastard, than have her starve in the slums wearing worn out torn clothes, while a filthy rich Cassian comes to visit judging every low and dirty inch of her state with a scrunched nose
The moment sjm introduces a morally grey character
Lucien treats Eris like Feyre treats Nesta
Even though Eris refused to hurt Lucien and his girlfriend
Even though the Archeron father was alive and well (and certainly capable of setting up animal traps)
Nesta and Eris have been prosecuted by the fullest extent of the fandom because of the opinions other people have of them
Mor trash talks Eris, the IC hates him
Feyre trash talks Nesta, the IC hates her
For anyone who wants Nesta to be doing “undercover work” for the Night Court like how Feysand stole the Book of Breathings from the Summer Court rather than dancing with Eris for the sheer joy of it
That’s not okay behavior and I do not support the idea that Nesta should work for Feysand
If you don’t ship neris, fine. But if you want Nesta to behave like and work with the IC…. 🤢
I’m on the Nesta Defense Squad and now I have to be on the Eris Defense Squad too??
Y’all!!! Read the damn book properly the first time!!
Eris did nothing wrong to Mor
Her family nailed a note to her chest after beating her, NOT ERIS
By refusing to marry her, he did her a kindness!!! She said she would rather bleed out than marry him!!
“Good to know that after five hundred years, you still dress like a slut.”
That’s Eris Vanserra.
He called Morrigan a “slut” because of her clothes. Saying that this male is better than Cassian it’s a shame.
Eris ended the engagement with Mor because he knew she didn’t want it.
Eris refused to be present for the torture and execution of Jesminda.
Eris ensured Lucien made it to Spring so he would survive.
Eris has shown through body language to be protective of his mother.
Eris has been brought up under a tyrannical father who is also his high lord, in a court that is notorious for being two faced. A court where it is nearly impossible to survive without being cruel. Eris is presented as also being two faced, showing moments of benevolency in between his arrogance.
Eris has been shown to not be wholly good, but not wholly bad either. It’s almost like he’s a complex character in a complex court that we don’t know a whole lot about right now but what has been made clear by Maas’s context clues is that he is expected to behave a certain way in the public eye given his father is an ancient and cruel high lord.
But yeah let’s get upset because he said Mor dressed like a slut and thus he’s the epitome of all evil. I absolutely understand not slut shaming but this is a fantasy setting that has clear indications of taking place during an older time where women were, unfortunately, viewed as beneath men. It’s not a 2021 social narrative.
Why y’all continue to project a modern social and political narrative onto a medieval fantasy world is beyond me.
He didn’t do anything to Mor. Her family did. He didn’t want to be in that arranged marriage either. Everyone who hates him ignores crucial details about his character.
Mor and Eris have both wronged each other. Slut-shaming her is just an easy insult, there’s no deeper meaning behind it. Obviously it’s not okay to do, but it’s also not okay that Eris has been repeatedly assaulted by the IC because Mor acts like Eris abused her when it was only her family that physically hurt her.
Even us neris shippers didn’t expect neris 🔥❤️
Nesta @ feyre and the IC in acofas and the acosf teaser
don’t even try coming for me, this is a joke and I’ll stab you
Bro! We all know that nesta was mean to feyre and that their relationship was not the best. But we also know to acknowledge her trauma the way every other characters trauma is respected. We exist. We arent unreasonable 😂
Nesta was mean to Feyre, but Feyre is worse to Nesta
Feyre is sending Nesta to a war camp. I mean…
It’s not that we can’t acknowledge Nesta’s flaws, it’s that nesta’s mistakes are comparatively nothing to what Feyre and the IC say/do to her
Cassian treats Elain like a little sister but flirts with a Feyre. Cassian is way too intimate with Mor.
Nesta deserves someone wholly devoted to her and loyal to her and prioritizes her
Cassian hasn’t been that person. But Eris would be
