there was such a good build up to the nessian romance and s/jm literally just...forgot it all. cassian literally flew to the house every other day for months the first time nesta and elain were staying there, just to see her. they had the same argument each time and he still came because, as he told feyre, "i can't stay away". he's insecure about his standing in the world, afraid he's not good enough for what he has/wants, and yet it was he who continually rejected nesta in public and made her feel like she wasn't good enough. the parallels?? the angst in learning you let your deepest fears manipulate you into hurting a loved one in the way that would hurt you the most, and that bringing the realization that you are indeed the same and that must mean that actually you are right for each other?? she's constantly looking at him and trying to hide it; he's literally the most brazen thing ever when looking at her. no exploration of that?? he teases her for reading romances, set up perfectly for him to do something with that, and he just...doesn't. no angry jealous pining about why she spends all her time reading about romances when he could give her one, no sweet attempt to mimic a grand gesture from one of her favorites, not even the obvious "let's act out a sex scene".
even within acosf, the set up is ignored. nesta was abused as a child--how could they not bond over that? how do they not share in that? nesta reveals that she punishes herself with sex with strangers for not being good enough for cassian; how does he not feel any guilt or fear that he is like his biological father in some sense?
and this literally isn't even all of it?? there was so much to work with here and she just...didn't. just a blowjob in the dining room.

@surfalldaybaby asked for more about how cassian’s devotion to the ic isn’t reciprocated, and since it’s an issue that’s been around the whole series instead of popping up in acosf it actually doesn’t bother me as much as ranting does, so i don’t mind talking about it.
comparing acomaf and acosf alone, we know that there’s a hierarchy in the ic even though they all pretend to be equals, and we know cassian is at the bottom of that hierarchy. his opinion is tended to be taken less seriously than anyone else’s (azriel’s disbelief anytime he has to follow orders shows that he’s not used to not being listened to in the same way as cassian) and cassian’s character is repeatedly relegated to comic relief and dumb jock in the friend group (there’s a few times that feyre notes there’s more to him than that, but nothing is ever really done with that fact). despite all of this, cassian seems to have zero identity issues when it comes to the ic. instead he defends mor and rhys with his life to a point that it almost gives you whiplash when you see one of these characters do a terrible thing and then have to read about how beautiful and perfect they are from cassian’s pov. i feel like the most obvious example of this imbalance is how in acomaf, rhys says cassian would gladly fuck feyre if she wanted him to (and it’s a serious offer too, like he just assumes his brother will be up for the task if feyre decides she wants him like he’s cassian’s pimp or something). meanwhile in acosf, cassian is spewing hateful things at his own mate for even suggesting that rhys is less than perfect.
the rest of the ic members seem to have no problem starting fights or calling others out when they’re upset. meanwhile, cassian’s constant train of “my friends are flawless people that are too good for this world” is only ever interrupted very briefly when he feels the need to defend nesta—but this anger never ever lasts or turns into something meaningful. in less than two seconds, he’s either apologizing for being too harsh or laughing the whole thing off with the ic, as if he was never mad at them in the first place (even though the root of his anger—nesta being disrespected, doesn’t disappear). and there’s the whole issue about how literally everyone knows about cassian’s feelings for nesta, and yet nobody seems to think this makes nesta worthy of attention or respect. when rhys introduced feyre to the group, they didn’t even need to know her before they were ready to accept her with welcoming arms. there was never the question of “but does she deserve rhys?” even though she was engaged to rhys’s mortal enemy like two days before. they walked on eggshells around her depression and were more than understanding when she wasn’t in the mood to do something. nesta gets basically the complete opposite treatment; it’s awkward in acowar when she’s more of her true self, but it turns outright hostile in acosf when she’s in the depths of her ptsd. everyone constantly makes her feel like shit/undeserving of her own cauldron-granted mate, and cassian’s near-blindness to the whole thing reads like straight up brainwashing. tbh the whole high king scene felt so out of character for cassian, it’s like a switch had been flipped in his brain and he became some sort of propaganda machine for feysand—that was the only scene that made me think “if this isn’t brainwashing idk what is”.
anyway that’s all i can think of for now i hope it makes sense?? thanks for reading

Sjm really said if you have depression and ptsd it's your fault and you should apologize for it to people who more or less don't give a damn about you. And that's what I took away from acosf😁

This annoys me too because when they say a book reads like fanfiction what they mean and should be saying is it feels unedited, like a first draft, sloppy, or incoherent.
Thats most people mean by its written like fanfiction because alot of fanfiction writers don't have a whole team their for them to fine tune their work. You would think the people who do, could do better but they don't.
Like talk about how theme was poorly developed, the diction is repetitive, bad structure, characterization in inconsistent, attention to detail, lack of world building.
Or just say badly written.
You know I think my biggest pet peeve is when someone says that a book reads like fanfiction. I know a lot of great fanfiction writers, I’m one myself. I try to do a lot of research for my fanfictions and a lot of fanfictions can actually be better than the source material. There’s so many talented writers and believe it or not some people enjoy writing as a hobby/ a side job. Writing can be a tough industry to get into and fanfiction is a great way to practice and to learn how to take criticism and apply it to your writing. There’s a lot of benefits to fanfiction and I do hate when people invalidate fanfiction writers because they have a lot of great ideas for a fandom they feel passionate about.

Elain is definitely the "hate the sin not the sinner" girl.

I hate when people try to dismiss any hate for Elain "because her book isn't out yet". Like Nesta wasn't an absolute icon in the books prior. I also hated this when people said it about Nesta'e book before it came out because she was already given so much. Then, they would say, "Nesta was only given so much for th buildup to her own book" yeah, wears Elain's build up? In 800 pages she barely did anything.

"Watching Nesta climax had been as close to a religious experience as Cassian had ever had."

This part of ACOSF In a nutshell:
Nesta: I hate myself. I am a useless awful failure who cannot do anything right.
Cassian: that’s not true!!! Look at you! Becoming a Valkyrie! Making friends! Slaying Kelpies! Making swords! I believe in you and I support you!
Nesta: maybe things are getting better...
Amren: you think doing some fucking TRAINING and spending time with this MAN exactly like I decreed you HAD to do at the beginning of this book in order to heal and get better CHANGES ANYTHING?! You think that makes you WORTH SOMETHING? YEAH FUCKING RIGHT!! NOTHING HAS CHANGED YOU WASTE OF LIFE!
Nesta: *lashes out*
The fandom: wow Nesta is so awful. What a hateful bitch. She doesn’t deserve anything. How could she do that to Feyre. This and everything bad that has ever happened is her fault specifically. Cassian deserves better. She SHOULD be forced to go on a self loathing hike for days on end.

I literally just started world of dance season 4 and all I can think about is which dance Nesta would have done. Girl is 1000% rocking contemporary ballet. I can totally see Cassian just being that partner who is just their to hold her in the air.
Tumblr media
i think what’s missing in nesta’s aesthetic is her possibility to be a ballerina,,, like hello? the woman is beauty, grace, and will punch you in the face,,, she’s just always portrayed with dark colors and all that her being a ballerina is like, being neglected,,, for cauldron’s sake she has her hair in  a bun and strict posture,,, her aesthetic is feminine, romantic, AND strong,,, i will be incorporating it more bc nesta’s art of dance is just wow,,, maybe that’s why she hated her friends in the mortal world (aside from the obv) but like they were her dance partners as well??? never forget nesta’s identity as a dancer

Not me thinking about how ACOSF would've gone if anyone actually cared why Nesta was avoiding them instead of being personally offended she wasn't hanging out with them anymore
