WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHIT IS GOING TO HAPPEN???? I just want my babies to be happy 😭🤚
Well… there will be a conclusion to the fic obviously, but there’s action to come and an intended path for certain characters, which I’ve known for a long time 👀

dear duskandstarlight
it's 4.53 AM (not-college day thank God) and I was about to go to sleep when I read on the notes of the next chapter "this is what y'all been waiting for??)
Obviously, I'm pretty sure I'll go to sleep at 5:30.
I blame the bat boys for giving me this vampire-like habits lol and you, for your quality writting lmao
Yeh… read on for the smut 😉😉 I hope it will be worth staying up late

im ngl but atm in E&L, it feels like we’re at that part in the book where the love interests are exactly where we want them to be and we would be satisfied if the book ended here, but there’s also 100 pgs left so we’re panicking 😂😂
Muahahah do not be lulled into a false sense of security... shit is going to happen!

Embers & Light (Chapter 37 teaser no.4)
Notes: Another E&L teaser because it’s Wednesday and I’ve had a lot of requests. I’m hoping to post on Sunday and I’m currently on schedule--watch this space! FYI this has smutty content (kind of)...
“Not for you,” Nesta clipped, banishing the salacious image from her mind. Cassian’s eyes flicked up to her in surprise, the dilated pupils narrowing slightly, as if her words had shut something down. “My neck,” she surmised with a snort. “Stop thinking about it.”
But she shivered as his eyes fell to her neck again. Couldn’t help it. Couldn’t stop remembering how it had felt as his teeth grazed his teeth over her pulse. How he had sucked it into his mouth, as if he were trying to drink the very life of her until they were one beating heart—her life fluttering completely at his mercy.
“Only if you do,” Cassian vowed hoarsely. He stepped even closer… until his torso brushed against hers. A predatory focus narrowed his movements wholly towards her. He raised a hand to her neck and slowly—torturously—drew a path with a calloused thumb down the curve of her neck, from behind the shell of her ear all the way down to her collarbone. “Have you been thinking about it? About my lips on your neck?”
Breath hitched in Nesta’s throat, a fist closing around her windpipe. But she wouldn’t let him win, not now.
“Have you been thinking about my hand on your cock?” Nesta rallied back, but the words were tight rather than brusque.

I'm so glad you're actually still updating. There's been so many writers that were very good and they just stoped out of the blue or if they come back they wanna either discontinue it or write something else entirely. I really get upset when it happens :(
Definitely updating! Definitely still writing! Just life is manic and I haven’t got as much time. But I will finish E&L. I’m quite determined when I set myself a challenge ❤️

I just reread E&L for like the seven hundredth time and I know we’re getting close to the end and I’m getting so nervous! My appetite for fluff is so huge but I feel like the end is near! I could seriously read another thirty chapter of cassian being touchy and needy and Nesta learning how to express herself. In my head Cassian is the biggest cuddler on the planet and I just want to see him being domestic and invading her space all the time and her just melting into it and neither of them holding back. Siiigh
Anyway I haven’t seen an irl naked man in like 3 years and I’m touch starved to the point of insanity, in case you couldn’t tell.
I could probably write another 30 chapters of angst and desperation for one another tbh @0llive. Trust me, it feels weird to have had them progress enough that I’m not writing angst. I’m mourning it tbh hahah.
BUT you are definitely getting more fluff now we near the end. And action. And drama. PREPARE YOURSELF.
I can confirm that Cassian is incredibly touchy feely…
I’m sorry for your lack of IRL naked male. I’ve written nearly 6k of smut in chapter 38… I hope that will suffice in the meantime? Cassian is hot AF…

The Chai tea that Nesta loves so much in E&L... What ingredients does it have? Any recipe??
Ohhh I love chai tea! So usually you can get it in teabag form in the supermarkets… BUT there are tons of recipes on how to make it yourself, you just need to buy a lot of staple Indian spices.
It’s wonderfully warming and so delicious! I very much recommend ❤️❤️❤️

When will be the next chapter posted?? (I just cannot wait lol, your writing is addictive) :D
On Sunday 20th June ❤️ In finishing and tweaking bits this week, so I aim to post for you guys then. I can’t wait for you to read it. There’s a lot of plot in this chapter which is why it has taken me so long to write! Thank you for sticking with me and being so patient.
I can’t wait for you guys to read it!

Ngl, E&L has become such a part of my heart and a part of Nessian canon in my head, that sometimes I forget what happened in E&L vs ACOSF. Which I think speaks to your credit as a writer that you are able to so wonderfully match the tone and characterization, and create wonderful plot lines for Nesta and Cassian. This is also to say I reread ACOSF, excited to reread certain scenes, only to remember that those scenes happened in E&L 😂
Awww what a compliment—thank you so much! What are your favourite E&L scenes?! Xxx

Happy Sunday!
I went back and reread all of Embers and Light searching for my favorite parts to share!
I love all the characters in your story, they are probably my favorite parts. Frawley, Lorrian, Mas, Roksana, and Sala ❤. I like the way all the characters we had already met in the series seem to act more like the characters we knew from the first four books.
I really enjoy the whole story you've created, so I picked just three parts to mention that were so much fun to read!
In chapter 30, you wrote, Dusk was well and truly descending and starlight already dusted the sky. I really did read this sentence more than once because I was so entertained by you putting duskandstarlight IN THE SAME SENTENCE! It made my day, even if it wasn't intentional 😄
I had to reread chapter 34 when Nesta deliberately sits by Cassian in the front of the inner circle and he lightly brushes her neck! 🥵 All the YES there!!!
Nesta giving Cassian his gift in Chapter 36 🥰 She's so nervous and scared he won't like it and he just loves the gift (and her!) You just want to hug them both!
Thanks, again, for writing this and sharing it. 😃
Awww thank you for this @rabbitlover1027, it made my entire day! I'm so, so happy you love my OC's. I'm also very fond of them. Mas has my heart and I love writing Frawley because she's so badass!
I did not notice I included my username in that paragraph but I vividly remember writing it--how funny! <3 ARGHHH that neck brushing scene is legitimately one of my favourite moments in E&L.
The gift. I SOB. I'm glad you loved that moment. I had it planned for such a long time and it was so hard keeping it a secret, because so many of you were hypothesising whether Nesta would be searching for the lullaby (and how she'd present it to Cassian!)

Will this next chapter have fluff? They make me weak 🥺
*racks brains* There's a lot of plot next chapter! But there's some nice insights into Nesta's head that could be seen as fluffy.
TBH there's a lot of sexually charged conversation in the lead up to heading back to the bungalow. Is that better?!

Embers & Light (Chapter 37 teaser)
Notes: Sorry it's taking me so long to bring you guys the next E&L chapter--life is hectic atm! But here is one of my favourite moments in this chapter (and it's extra long!). The next update is most likely going to be next Sunday
I hope you guys like it! Drop me a comment, reblog or an ask if you'd like :) I always love to hear from you <3
“Ladies,” Cassian greeted breezily, pausing in the doorway to say hello to Sala who had padded over from her spot by the window.
Rising on her hind legs, the manticore climbed her front paws up Cassian’s torso until they were resting on his shoulders.
Cassian absent-mindedly ruffled Sala’s fur, his focus steadfast on the two females at the table. “It seems you have both risen early this morning. Tell me we’re about to eat breakfast and aren't partaking in a book club. I’ve not read whatever risqué romance is on the agenda.”
“Are you suggesting that Maya indulges in smut?” Nesta asked crisply.
Maya choked on a laugh.
Heat flooded Cassian’s tan cheeks and Nesta bit down hard on her lip to stop her icy facade from cracking: Cassian had a habit of speaking without thinking and this was a prime example.
“Apologies,” he told Maya with a rustle of his wings.
But Maya only shook her head. Stifled the smile that was halfway to her lips. Her hazel eyes sparkled with amusement. It made them take on a quality close to Cassian’s—the shards of amber in them glinting to gold.
Scratching the back of his neck like an admonished youngling, Cassian admitted, “That was assuming of me. It’s all Nesta reads.”
A hiss dragged itself from between Nesta’s teeth and heat swirled beneath her skin, but Nesta wasn’t sure it was from anger. Rather it was the way Cassian looked at her—that overfamiliar, beautiful gaze that made the back of her neck prickle.
A slash of a smile crept across Cassian’s face, as if he had dissected the thorny mask she was wearing and had seen what lay beneath it.
He opened his mouth to speak, but Maya cut in before silver began to mist from Nesta’s fingertips. “I was not permitted to read anything romantic at the Ironcrest residence,” she replied, taking a deliberate sip of tea.
The twin observed Cassian over the rim, her Illyrian eyes still twinkling like stars. “Perhaps I’ll have to start.”

I love E&L so much and am so appreciative of you sharing your talents and this story with us. Like others I am excited for the next update but also please take care of yourself first and don't feel any pressure :)
Thank you so much! You are wonderful for dropping into my ask box with this lovely message <3 I'm hoping you will get an update soon. Maybe by Sunday. Definitely the Sunday after that. The chapter has four parts and most of it is written, it's just filling bits in and fleshing it out. Saying that, it's already 8000 words :)
I can't wait for you guys to read it! I've also written a bit of the next chapter, which is where Nesta and Cassian go back to the bungalow. I was hoping the smut would be in the next chapter but I had to put in some important plot and moments between the sisters that couldn't be left out, so... you guys will have to wait a little longer. Please do not harass me about it--I promise you I feel really bad--but it just didn't work out <3
I will definitely be posting a teaser on Wednesday, though. Keep an eye out :)
