acosf spoilers down below once again!
now that i looked into things more deeply with az elain and gwyn, i’m going to try my best and not ship any of them. i think sjm could shift her attention to gwyn so we can know ab her a lot more, but i’m also hoping to know more ab elain as well! shipping elriel together will just bring me more stress, so why not just stop shipping them and see where things go?

acosf spoilers again!
now trying to look into things more closely, i can see sjm shifting the focus to gwyn instead of elain. in my last post, i said az and gwyn had more chemistry but now i think they just knew each other longer. in the exclusive i think az is in desperate need for touch and love, the longing he’s felt. i see now he never specified what he felt for elain, and he thinks he deserves to have elain since their brothers and sisters have already gotten together. i could still see sjm making their love story more complex, but lets look at gwyn and az.
although i am an elriel shipper, i’m trying not to be a shipper of anyone atm. when az talks to gwyn, he seems more relaxed and friendly but with elain he seems more desperate bc he thinks he deserves her and the cauldron made a mistake, he needs the love. his shadows sang with gwyn, he was able to sleep after talking with her, and he had a little smile on his face when he could see her being happy when receiving the necklace. all of that shows az is just more.. him around gwyn. more released in a good way. i think i want elain and az to end up together only bc elain has been in the books longer, and gwyn showed up and that’s why i’m skeptical of them ending up together, but i have a feeling sjm won’t just throw elain out of the picture. i’m going to try and not ship them for the moment and see where things go. elain could end up with az, or gwyn could end up with az. it seems more reasonable for gwyn to end up with him considering the way he acts with her, but ik there’ll be a bigger story with elain and him since elain has been there longer than gwyn. and there’s also mor to consider, that’ll be more complicated since az has been chasing her for 500 years. but we’ll see.
the thing that makes me feel uneasy is a lot of people throwing hate at elain. reminder, just bc elain cries doesn’t mean she’s weak. so what if she’s weak? it’s not a bad thing and crying is how you explain your feelings without knowing how to. elain is strong and has gotten stronger. she’s precious and so sweet so idk why there’s hate. and people are saying they’ll literally fight elain if she takes az away from gwyn. friendly reminder, az doesn’t belong to anyone! as long as the 3 of them are happy in the end, that’s what matters

ok so, everyone is debating whether gwyn and az or elain and az will get together. and there’s so many theories. in acosf az’ showdows sing with gwyn but hide from elain. and in the exclusive az apparently thinks that he had to end up with elain bc of the 3 brothers and 3 sisters. a lot of people think that elain shouldn’t end up with az bc she doesn’t belong in the darkness, but i think it would be so adorable to have someone so cute and gentle end up with someone in the darkness to pull them out of it. makes sense right?
me personally, i want az to end up with elain bc i just think they have more chemistry than az and gwyn. even tho elain hadn’t showed up in the books much she clearly is important to everyone including az. but i’m just unsure with who az likes better. some people think that the person he may really be looking for could be out of the ic like gwyn, and i’m only unsure of az ending up with gwyn bc we haven’t gotten to know much ab her personally, like what she likes. so that’s why i ship elain and az more, and i really hope there won’t be a love triangle bc that would just be so stressful lmao and i’m already stressed with everyone shipping people with each other. for some reason it bothers me so much when people ship az and gwyn, bc it just seems for reasonable for them to end up together and it just scares me that az and elain won’t end up together, but i tell myself that as long as all of them are happy in the end, nothing else matters and i think the fandom should know that too bc i see so many people hating on elain for trying to “take away” az from gwyn. az doesn’t belong to anyone and elain has more chemistry with az anyway. it literally doesn’t make sense and idk why the fandom hates elain so much.
some people think that elain will see lucien and vassa be close with each other and get jealous, sparking the mating bond. i think that elain and lucien could be cute since nesta said in the books that elain would love the spring court. so maybe that could happen, and people think that eris could end up with gwyn which is really shocking bc gwyn needs a good man, not like eris but maybe he’ll get more character development in the next book. but it just bothers me so much when people ship gwyn and az and idk why. it’s like that tight feeling and worry in your chest you know? but i’m trying to grow on the ship so i don’t get bothered by it so much. but if i’m being honest i really don’t want there to be a love triangle bc i want elain and gwyn and az to all be happy, and not fight but i know they would never do that. i trust sarah j mass, i don’t trust the toxic side of the fandom where people are being unreasonable with hating on elain bc they think she’ll take az away from gwyn. i just want elain to end up with az, but in the end as long as they’re happy it’s ok.

ok don’t get me wrong, i love nesta she’s super complex. i’m aware that she doesn’t use her trauma as an excuse to be a bitch i see that, but i hate that half the fandom just excuses it. everyone’s criticizing feyre and the ic for being immature on not helping nesta with her ptsd, but it’s literally only 6 chapters there’s gonna be character development. obviously they’re not gonna be perfect and obviously feyre doesn’t know how to help nesta bc she always pushed her away. i get both sides, and yes the ic was being immature and a little bitchy and people don’t like it, but where’s the same energy when nesta was being a bitch most of all the book? where’s the energy?
i don’t hate nesta i like her, i like that she’s aware she’s being a bitch and i get she has trauma, but i’m so tired of seeing half the fandom with posts just excusing nesta for being a bitch bc of her trauma. like i know nesta doesn’t use it as an excuse but i’m seeing so many posts of people just excusing nesta for being a bitch and saying she’s strong instead. i know nesta is strong that woman is so fucking strong, but i’m tired of people saying that her being bitchy is being strong, and it’s annoying when people say elain is weak bc she cries sm. like what? but yeah, no hate towards nesta or anything i love her and i’m excited to see how her character will develop, i’m just tired of half this fandom.
