ACOTAR Men as Ducks
Don’t ask, just go with it.
Rhys: Cayuga Duck
Dark, mysterious, but also ostentatious and classy. It’s unique and unexpected, yet subtle. You see this duck and immediately go “that is one fine ass duck.”
Cassian: Muscovy Duck
Kind of terrifying, but the more you look at it, you realize it is one good-looking duck. You see one of these babies in the wild and your jaw drops. No other duck can match this duck’s energy.
Azriel: Ring-Necked Duck
Dark and brooding, but sexy as fuck. Subtle, sophisticated and alluring. This is a duck that you want to stop and look at for a while. You want to know more about this duck. Sexy AF. Period.
Lucien: Wood Duck
Stylish as hell. This duck demands your attention. It’s classy, it’s bold, and it can get it. Kind of intimidating, but so beautiful that you just have to look at it. This duck is top tier and sexy AF.
Eris: Baikal Teal
Much like the Wood Duck, this bad boy can get it. Pretty AF, but oh so elusive. The bold colors distract you from the simple elegance of it’s features. It’s classy, but also mysterious.
Kallias: Smew Duck
Not the most ostentatious duck, but this baby is sleek. It doesn’t need to be flashy to grab your attention. It draws you in with it’s graceful simplicity. Fine AF.
Tarquin: Madagascar Teal
This duck is more subtle, especially when it’s wings are tucked in, but it has a beauty that is all its own. When it flares out those wings, it hooks your attention. It’s the duck you sometimes forget about until it shows off those sexy wings.
Helion: Black Swan
There is no other bird like the Black Swan. Larger than life, eye-catching from all angles, beauty that can’t be described. This is the bird that stands out in any crowd, no matter who else is there. It is the baddest bitch on the playground. Period. Black Swan supremacy.

Reason N° 56282929292 I don't trust Feyre POV:
When people say "Ooh Nesta was so mean! She refused to teach Feyre how to read!!"
▪️ACOTAR according to Feyre:
According to this train of thoughts, Nesta and Elain didn't bother to teach Feyre how to read and hence why she grew up illiterate. As if Feyre asked them and they flatly just said NO.
▪️But then we get to ACOWAR and guess what?:
▪️A couple of things:
1. Neither Nesta nor Elain knew about Feyre's inability to read.
2. Feyre never asked them to teach her. She straight up made assumptions that they wont bother or they will just refuse.
3. Nesta would have taught her, she freaking loves books and reading!! And Elain, sweet sweet Elain as Feyre always describes her...why would she refuse to teach Feyre?? If Elain is always super kind and nice?
4. Nesta getting all the information about Feyre through Amren. And this is not the first time. If Nesta didn't care about Feyre, she wouldn't even have bothered to ask Amren about Feyre.
You want another proof:
Again, Nesta getting information about Feyre from Amren, this time regarding the blood rubies. Which btw, this is one of the reasons that made Nesta decide to join the High Lords meeting. Because her little sister risked her life to defend a court that sent her a death threat!
Also, we see how Nesta in ACOFAS detaches herself from her sisters and the IC. We know that she decided to leave Feyre's home and live on her own. Why? Because that way she can have some privacy and also she wont get judged every single minute of the day on what she does or should do. (Apart, of course, from all her PTSD struggles, etc..).
But guess what?
Who is the only person she actually keeps in contact with?? Who, out of her sisters and the IC she actually bothers to visit and talk with?
Yep, you guessed it. Freaking AMREN.
Nesta, the cold bitch who doesn't care shit about anyone else, actually bothers to visit Amren and watch her build puzzles while they talk. And guess who always feed Nesta information regarding what's going? Yep, right again. AMREN.
Sometimes, I do struggle with first person narrative because they dont tend to be objective but, the trick is to know how to read between the lines. I could go on and on about lots of things I've been finding that I think they're important to highlight when it comes to secondary characters, without involving Feyre and Rhysand.
I find frustrating that people dont seem to move on from the first 4 chapters of Acotar when it comes to Nesta, but the other characters are just fine.
Perhaps, closer to the release of ACOSF I might post some of my notes of the little things I think might be important to mention when it comes to Nesta, Cassian, Elain, Azriel, Lucien, Mor, Tamlin and Eris because I know they will all play a role in the next books.
