In Rhys's sort of defence......
Okay so I have seen SO MANY posts regarding Rhys's behaviour in acosf and how people are mad about him being "out of character" and terrible to Nesta and that entire drama with Feyre and her practically terminal pregnancy.
Yet, I honestly never for one moment thought he was out of charchter or that what he did is completely non-understandable. So here are my thoughts on this entire thing:
The book is from the pov of someone who hates him. Nesta doesn't like Rhys a whole lot (to say the least) at the start, and for most of the book. It's honestly refreshing to read a perspective that is criticizing him and not constantly saying how perfect he is, which as this book showed, he is not. We feel a lot more connected to the thoughts of Nesta in this book and thus see aspects of Rhys that are not so great. He is flawed, he makes mistakes, he is not perfect in any way.
Saying that, Rhys's treatment of Nesta is obviously, not good. But it's also nothing new. He has treated her the same from the moment he met her, and we all know why. She's someone who hurt his mate, who is honestly, potentially very dangerous at the moment given her powers and delicate emotional state. His treatment hits different because we firsthand read how much of an impact it has on Nesta this time. Could he have done better? Absolutely. But so could have literally everyone in the IC.
The pregnancy disaster. I'm not even going to try to say what Rhys did was in any way, shape or form right. Feyre had the right to know, and I like to believe she gave him hell for hiding their collective demise from her. But, like I said above, Rhys can make mistakes. Sometimes big and terrible ones. He has already lost his mate once, and been in many situations where he could lose her again. Can we not TRY to accept the possibility that Rhys, mortifyingly panicked, tried to fix the entire mess himself because, A) he most likely blamed himself for this situation and B) cannot bear to face Feyre and tell her they are quite possibly gonna die, again.
All in all, the book made Rhys an even more compelling, complex and relatable charchter for me. Someone who is capable of making big mistakes, who can be clouded with emotion and be dumb like everyone else, who is selfish at times. Someone who is still very much healing and is going through a lot. Rhys is not a perfect, selfless feminist. He is much more complex and every bit the morally gray charchter we love and adore. More importantly, he is a person, and we should treat him as one too.

Amren, holding a box: You promise you did not get me bees again?
Delwin, from a distance: Just bloodydamn open it already!
What do you think the inner circle would do at disneyworld/land?
I've actually never been to Disney World (Sad, I know, I plan to go sometime though) so I don't know much about it, but here is what I think.
For some reason, I just KNOW Elain would love the spinning teacups ride, and she would have them all go on it and her and Amren would be chatting and spinning at a normal speed Nesta and Cassian would go flying past spinning at 100 mph.
Feyre would not just stop to take pictures with all of the characters, but she would have full fledged conversations with each and every one of them. And Mor would flirt with all of the Disney princesses.
Our bat boys would all love the fastest rides Disney Land has.
Rhys would also use his Daemati powers to get them to the front of every line, and Feyre would complain, but it would make Nyx so happy she would finally relent.
Nesta would say it is “childish” but would secretly love it and Azriel would carry all of there stuff around, and try to keep the rest of them under control.

How I feel about this character - I wish that she had stayed dead in acowar even though I appreciate her wisdom and random-ass advice that she can’t follow herself.
All the people I ship romantically with this character - still no one, I know she and Varian are boning but I still cling to my ace Amren headcanon
My non-romantic OTP for this character - Nesta. Let’s just forget the entire events of acosf because I still want them to be besties
My unpopular opinion about this character - I think that the things she said in acosf needed to be said. They weren’t kind in the least, but they were necessary.
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon. - I wish she had stayed dead, but otherwise I wish that in the future she would kinda fuck off to the Summer Court or something. She just comes at everything with a completely different perspective that is valuable, but also just convenient for the plot and that’s the part that actually annoys me.

Can I remind everyone in the ACOTAR fandom that this is just a book series made up of fake people that have no true influence on your life. Looking through Tumblr and seeing people post all these hateful posts comments about others readers/artists/ characters/ and even Sarah herself is literally so sad to watch. People are allowed to like or dislike certain characters and relationships all they want but, people need to at least respect what others think and not judge them for it just because it doesn't fit what you want. People in this fandom have created such a hateful environment for others and have started obsessing over these characters on what looks like a very unhealthy level. While even I have certain relationships I'm leaning towards and issues with certain character's choices I know that at the end of the day it's a book series. While everyone may disagree about different things please still respect each other.

A Court of thorns Sheeps
I made a few sheeps based on ACOTAR:)
After reading my fanfic implying he forced Feyre to be with him, Tamlin was not available for any comments.
Lucien, however was.
Rhysand and Mareena Hanging out together in the purple sheep section. I’m pretty sure Rhys is the only male there..He is very loyal so dont assume anything about our dear high lord..
Our king chilling with Balakin, Carden’s pyscho brother.
Suriel chilling with two unknown possible kings but also possible trash bags. He has a large following and is the king of tea spilling by the black sheep.
Cassian hanging out with a dude. (Nesta is the only girl in the black sheep section and she was upstairs) That’s cool, Cass. Glad you’re making friends.
Queen Nesta being approached by a fuckboy and ready to kill him.
Amren being Amren.

Wasn't Sarah a little too lazy when writing Hunt? The guy is literally Cassian 2.0
He's what Cassian would be like when he's not being comic relief, more like the general commander side of Cassian.
update: Isn't Hypaxia just Irene 2.0?
another update: You can't convince me Fury isn't Amren omg I'm gonna stop now

A brief reminder that if Elain didn’t find the Suriel for Feyre, then Feyre wouldn’t have been able to convey the message to Amren on how to unbind herself and destroy the army.
That it was Elain and Nesta who killed the King of Hybern.
That it was Feyre who decided to re-forge the Cauldron.
That it was Vassa who destroyed Hybern’s navy.
That it was Viviane and Cressida who stood up first and said that they will fight alongside Mor.
So it’s basically girls coming together and winning the war!

Most ____: ACOTAR Couples Edition
Best suited for each other:
Varen? Varian + Amren/ Emorie/ Elucien
This was super hard!!! I wanted to put everyone in everything but-- GAHHH
These are my opinions, but I would love to know yours!!

Okay. Let’s do Amren now !!
How I Feel About this Character
Another character I am indifferent about. I would like to see her grow, but she is a character I don’t go out of my way to see and read about. She’s the best for world building.
All the People I Ship this Character with Romantically
What’s his name? Varian? Her canon boyfriend? Him.
My NON-Romantic OTP for this Character
I actually don’t have one here. Maybe Nesta? They had a building... not friendship, but they saw each other. Kinda upset that broke apart.
My Unpopular Opinion About this Character
I wouldn’t have minded if she stayed dead? Does that make me horrible? I don’t hate her, but she should have stayed dead to drive home the point that she sacrificed herself for the war.
One Thing I Wish Would Happen to this Character in Canon
I want Amren to realize that she can be quite hurtful with what she says. Also drop the High King bullshit.
Give Me a Character

SJM loves creating powerful female characters, but either taking away or not letting them use their abilities at all...
Like everyone talked about how powerful Feyre was, but she literally didn’t do anything in the final battle of ACOWAR! This girl had the power from EVERY high lord, could fly, and was battle trained but sat out of the battle. Same with Nesta. We spend the whole book hearing about how mysterious and powerful her silver flames are, but it ends with her losing them before we even get to see them?! Same with Aelin, Mor (Who is said to be very powerful, but we NEVER see her powers), and Amren!
I get that SJM can’t just have these super powerful MCs come in and kill the bad guys on the first try, but she shouldn’t over-power them in the first place.
Reasonable abilities=the chance to have her MCs actually show their power instead of it just being mentioned repeatedly.

No one told you to go into acosf thinking 500+ year old fae was going to kiss nestas feet and be nice to her just because she exists. Cassian and Amren and Azriel were not going to turn on their family for centuries for her. Rhysand said for 3+ books now that he can’t forgive people that hurt Feyre.
It just bothers me that nesta can slut-shame Feyre, threaten to slit her throat, tells her she’s a beast and no one will remember her, blame everything in her “life” on her and more and people can blame that on nesta tramua, but the IC say one bad thing to her and we’re suppose to cry and cancel them?
If anything the IC returned the energy she always gives. “They were mean” is just not a statement you expect nestas stans to say, stating that being snappy and berating people is nestas entire personality. Just go write your fan fiction of her running away and pretending the inner circle would care if she did...
