made this side blog for the sole purpose of writing azriel fics and probably some feysand oneshots. it’s time I stop fighting my utter adoration for this series and these characters
Nesta wasn’t the type of girl to be out cheering for her school team. Her sisters were—one of the reasons why their relationship wasn’t as strong as other siblings’–but Nesta was perfectly content to sit in her favorite corner of the library. Large windows on either side of her to illuminate her favorite words and far enough from the over-eager crowds of her classmates.
The book was one she’d read hundreds of times. Nesta had found it on her mother’s night table when she was fifteen. Just as the family of, suddenly, four were clearing her things to donate. Nesta’s mother died in a car crash. Her suffering was quick, they’d said, but the one she left behind was still on going.
It was romance. Not the kind her mother would want Nesta to read, that much was certain. But Nesta had fallen in love with the characters, with the story. She couldn’t put it down. She’d dog-eared her favorite pages, underlined her favorite passages. It was well and truly loved, and you could tell by just glancing it. The book was not to be found at a school library, so if she ever brought it out, she’d make sure to hide it behind another. A Dickinson or Shakespeare one, depending on the day.
I saw the painting in my mind: the lovely fawn, blooming spring vibrant behind her. Standing before Death, shadows and terrors lurking over his shoulder. Light and dark, the space between their bodies a blend of the two. The only bridge of connection … that knife.
Azriel x Elain - A Court of Thorns and Roses
For the employees of Terra and Cadre magazines, the Annual Prythian Printing Holiday Away was usually a weekend full of festivities. However this year, with less than twenty fours before the trip, haunted memories cause two employees’ secret affair to fall into shambles–their hearts along with it. Will a weekend in the mountains be a time of healing or are the scars left behind too deep to overcome

@justgiu12: Nessian- just shut up and take your pants off, best sleep I’ve had in a long time
@sjm-things: Nessian- counting freckles while the other one sleeps (to both of you I know I’m months late on these prompts. they were written down in a notebook and I lost them. sorry! but I found it so hey! better late than never!
A/N: Y'all here we are the end of this lovely tale. Meg and I would love to issue our thanks to all of you for reading and supporting our story. We couldn’t have done with you ❤. As we mentioned previously, we will be continuing a writing journey together with more fics on the way. If you’d like to keep tabs on our future works be sure to follow @starborn-illyrian. Our next big, Archeron, will be soon and were so excited for you all to read it!
Since we’ve been hitting you guys heavy with angst these past couple parts. Enjoy the filth and fluff that is part 6.
From the bottom of our hearts,
Find out more about Archeron here:
With a well rested groan, Cassian shifted slightly, careful to not wake Nesta, removing his arm from underneath her body. He hated to move, but his own body was stiff crying out in pain. He needed some relief. That sadly the warmth of Nesta’s body couldn’t provide. Strands of her honeyed hair stuck to her face, an affectionate grin tugged at the corner of his lips. Brushing away the stray pieces with a swoop of his hand, Nesta burrowed into the pillows with a relaxed groan.
Cassian reached out to the night stand, grabbing the bottle Rowan dropped off, taking his dosage. Tossing the pills into his mouth, he caught the shimmering reflection of crimson. Nesta’s gift. For later, she told him. Then she unleashed her past on him. He was sure some of the ache, especially in his chest, wasn’t from the accident. But her story. Nesta was one of the strongest people he knew. For her to suffer like that and keep it inside to continue on every day… Cauldron, he admired her more for it.
Taking one long look at her sleeping form, Cassian went for it. Taking the small box quietly, he unwrapped it. Inside there was a scarlet tie and a piece of paper. He chuckled. It’s been months since he saw that tie. He remembered Nesta pulling him down on her, undoing the silken fabric, tossing it aside as it landed perfectly into her wine glass. Sure enough upon further inspection, half of the tie was darker than the rest.
His attention dropped to the neatly folded slip of paper. Nesta was silent still, breathing heavily. He picked up the paper, unfolding it. Her elegant script covered the page along with random splotches of ink smeared across discolored parts of the paper. He realized she must have cried writing this. He held his breath and read.
I think people are allowed to have their fan casts, but sometimes I look at fan casts for the bat boys and Amren and Lucien and all I can think about when looking at them is
Like have I been imagining them as the wrong skin color the whole time?? Are they not POC or coded POC?
Aelin: To whatever end?
Rowan: To whatever end, Fireheart.
That is it. That’s the meme 🤡

A little late today, and with some minor tumblr glitches ><, but here’s chapter 19! Enjoy loves!
Being on strict bed rest was going to be a lot harder than I originally anticipated.
After the first couple of days, wherein Madja assured my mate and I that I was making excellent progress in my recovery, I began to grow mindlessly bored. During those first few days, Rhys continued his vigil at my side, but mercifully slept and ate when I did. He reopened his line of communication with our friends in the estate, talking with them mind-to-mind and updating them on my condition. He also relayed any messages they had for me, allowing me past his mental shields so I could hear their words directly. After hearing Mor practically beg to see me after the umpteenth time, I informed my mate that it was time to put an end to our isolation period. His male-bonded instincts made him reluctant at first, but after I reminded him of the instructions given to him by our healer—to allow our friends, our family, to take care of the both of us, he acquiesced.
Azriel and whoever his mate having a kid before any other couple seems right to me. And then Nessian, Elucien, and finally Feysand. I don’t know why that seems right to me but it does.
Before ACOFAS I would have said Amren but based on Amren’s slut-shaming (and yeah, she might have had a good reason to hate Nesta at the moment, I know, but that was still hard to read) and on the sneak peaks revealing a new side of Azriel, I’m going to pick Az. Out of the two, he’s the one I would rather have the backstory of even though some more information about Amren and her old angel status would be interesting as well!
Azriel smells like night-chilled mist and cedar 🥺
At the end of the day there are so many things that us readers have had time to dissect over the years that I don’t think SJM even dissected to same degree we did lol.
Sure Nesta and Cassian are gonna fuck multiple times in A Court of Silver Flames but I want at least ONE cuddle or fluff scene where they are both happy and smiling and laughing.
I really hope Azriel don’t feel to bad when he officially have to lay to rest his feelings for Mor.. I think since he already know how she feels he’ll handle it well.
I think the fandom should point out that while Azriel did continue to like her… he NEVER forced his feelings. He never made her uncomfortable or ignored her.. he stayed a true friend all this time and fought with her for centuries…. he don’t even have bad feelings towards Cassian when he could’ve seen as a betrayal.
22 days guys…just 22 more days and then we’ll have A court of Silver Flames.
So the Archeron sisters really fucked up the inner circle and how they work 🤣 Not only that but they rearrange it and Acosf is gonna show that 😘
Things I want to happen in ACOSF
The Archeron sisters sit down WITHOUT… I REPEAT… WITHOUT… the inner circle and talk about their issues
Cassian, Mor, and Azriel figure out their issues as quickly as possible.. no one want to see another 500 years of this
Amren and Rhysand shut up and sit down challenge… I only want to hear their opinion if someone ask
Feyre, Elain, and Nesta finding friends outside the Inner Circle
Feyre and Nesta relationship blooming
Flashbacks of young Archeron sisters
Cassian recalling the Mor incident over 500 years ago
Azriel moving towards getting over Mor
More high lords
I don’t want Eris
NO pregnant Feyre
I wonder what it’s like to never have read ACOTAR and to not be thinking about ACSF.
