Me when it come to the Archeron sisters. Especially Nesta.
I came across this TikTok or someone is like half a quarter through ACOWAR, asking when Nesta becomes likable. I’m like almost done with ACOTAR and there was like this one line that made me understand her and I already like her.
All it took was one line for me. One line
Also, I understand Nesta because I have experienced trauma at a very young age. So I do understand my way of thinking is not gonna be the same as the average reader, Including the average reader of YA Fantasy.
￼ Sometimes in response to trauma you want to respond with cold indifference ie Heart Made of Ice attitude.￼
Nesta Archeron ❤️
✨Day 24th of the #inktober : Dizzy ✨
Nesta during all Acofas broke my heart. 😢
She is traumatized and alone, and want to be alone.
During my reading, I feel all the distress of her character, the loneliness, the feeling of falling into a black hole, the dizzyness of the memory of being traumatized. 😔🙍
I really love her character, because she’s secret, alone, and want good for her sisters even if she doesn’t want to admit it.
Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know, but I ship Nesta with Lucien.
I just realised something. In Acofas Cassian mentioned the
I don’t want Cassian to know I am reading smut look.
Does that mean that everytime she reads smut, she just looks at Cassian , as in daydreaming that when will they do it ? Or you know when will she kiss him ( pre war oc) ?
And when they have eyes contact, she quickly composes herself that she is just reading a normal book and that he is annoying her.
When infact she is simping for him?
Thinking of all the things I could do if I spent 20% of the time I spend thinking about ACOSF on them like I could probs figure out how to cure cancer????
Manon Blackbeak’s story/character arc from Heir of Fire to Kindgom of Ash is the BEST I have ever read and I feel it in my bones, Nesta Archeron’s from ACOTAR to ACOSF is going to be just as epic and beautiful if not more so!
things i want in acosf
- to know who is the “she” azriel is going to see in acofas (or do we know and im not aware?)
- who the bone carver appears as to cassian
- see a vulnerable nesta. yes our girl is strong and a bad bitch, but i want her to heal and be vulnerable for a min. i want her to express everything that she feels.
- a feyre and nesta real talk. for them to fucking communicate. and i’ll like for feyre to sort of apologize or sort of explain her motives for sending her to illyria.
- nesta or nessian doing the rite? another account put that in my mind and im !!!!
- nessian adressing the mor situation (i think its time). it would also be intersting if cassian finally talks to mor???
- more archeron sisters moments
- and honestly i wouldnt mind some angst to go with all this cause i’m just trash
okay so up until now those are the things i want, i hope we get to see at least some of them le sigh
Okay so I was gone from Tumblr for like a week or more and I’ve definitely missed something about ACOSF.
Anyone wanna fill me in?
I don’t like cassian calling nesta sweetheart. I think that’s so damn basic. Bc hunt does the same shit and it’s like…can we not? Fireheart is one of the most iconic nicknames a guy had ever had and I want that kind of energy for nessian pls
A random thought I often have is when feyre has a baby rhys could legit just take her pain away (like he did with Clare in acotar when she was getting tortured) and she can just pop that baby out like it an average Tuesday. Or during a bad period he can just say oop no more pain… just imagine a husband that can do that for you. Amazing.
Notes: I’ve had a few of you asking for Cassian’s POV when he saw Nesta dressed for Solstice, so I cobbled this quickly together. As usual, let me know if you’d like to be tagged in any of my fanfic updates (or untagged)…
You can read the original chapter from Nesta’s POV here.
As usual, sorry for any typos!
Each rap of Cassian’s knuckles against the wood of Nesta’s bedroom door magnified his apprehension. His nerves had started to fray as soon as he started to dress in his usual black pants and shirt — his go-to outfit for fancier occasions. Even after years of hounding from Rhys and Mor, Cassian couldn’t bring himself to pin down an extortionately priced tailor to fashion his own clothing. Instead, he was wearing what Mas had lovingly made for him with Illyrian fabric. He had paid her handsomely for it and it had made him feel all the better knowing that she desperately needed the money whereas an over-priced tailor did not.
Cassian had been back in Velaris the evening previous, celebrating the coming of Solstice with his family, and Azriel had winnowed him back to the house in the early hours. Thankfully, the ramifications of Cassian’s one-too-many glasses of wine had bled away with his third plate of breakfast, but to his dismay, the disappearance of a hangover had only paved the way for a heavy sense of dread that he could not shake.
acotar fandom be like i love this brutal and seemingly remorseless fae warrior but then freak out when a character with villainous/morally ambiguous tendencies shows up
Nesta(acotar) and Alastair(tsc) are both the characters who got meaningless hatred because they did something wrong with the main characters…They didn’t deserve it.
All they needed was a loving and responsible father and someone who tried to reach to them even when they would retract.The things that happened to them filled them with hatred which made them bitter and cold.. But they were still loving and caring inside.
I just want to say that please don’t judge a character on just one situation or on the fact they hurt the main characters. Hatred makes people do things they regret later. I know hurting someone is not right. But this is not a perfect world and both books don’t have perfect characters.
I still think it’s wild that Rhysand stans of all people throw around the word abuse when it comes to Nesta. Lol like did we both read the parts about the shitty things Rhysand has done and continues to do??
Some Nesta Archeron for you all :)

So I know the big point of hate or a big stance is that Nesta shouldn’t have let Feyre go into the woods. But 1) That was to make her story work, and 2) (the bigger point) what do you think the girls did when she left for days? You think Nesta AND Elain just sat around and smiled? No. I’m sure they didn’t. I’m sure Nesta had to do bills, or try to find suiters so her sisters could be taken care of in the future. (I say that because it seems like they are in ‘older times’ like with the dresses and main society ideals are from like the 1900’s and under? Roughly; plus the world is a different one than ours.) I’m sure they tried to help their father, continue their studies. Elain gardening for pleasure but also maybe had to harvest vegtables. Maybe they had to go into town for supplies. They cut their wood. There was literally hundreds of things to do. Feyre was poorly treated but don’t act like she did EVERYTHING. Yes, she hunted and supported them but food wasn’t their only worry. And also as soon as Nesta was worried about Feyre she went after her. She cared, don’t act like she didn’t. My main point is that we’ve only heard Feyre’s opinion. Be careful where you lay the axe, sometimes it’s sharper than it looks. In the end their Father should have been better, not the kids.
“The wind whipped away the tears rolling down Nesta’s face at the sight of our father’s ships. At the sight of the ship he’d chosen to sail into battle, for the daughter who hated him for not fighting for us, who had hated him for our mother dying, for the poverty and the despair and the years lost.”
