Parallels / (another) crack theory of mine:
Remember how, when Feyre was turned Fae, while she was ded her soul or whatever clinged onto Rhys in order to survive?
Now what if the same actually happened to Elain & Nesta in the cauldron??? It’s constantly been mentioned how one had to have enough will power to survive the process. Maybe this wasn‘t an issue at all because they both had their mates present in the room (just like Feyre had Rhys under the mountain...)
And maybe they wouldn‘t even have noticed because they’re no Daemati. (Lucien didn‘t notice Feyre inside his head...)

I watched Joseph: King of Dreams, and I’m starting to wonder if Sarah might’ve based Lucien off of Joseph; youngest brother with mean half older brothers like him, also the most virtuous. The similarities between Eris and Judah - not exactly “good” but might care for their youngest brother? And, oh my God, the sass they both have!
Also Joseph becomes king of Egypt, could this also mean we’ll see Lucien become High Lord of the Day Court or even High King of Prythian?

ACOTAR dudes and how much they care about their ✨aesthetic✨
Lucien: He cares, do you think his hair is shinny and silky just by Cauldron’s grace? no it isn’t. He has a routine and a secret conditioner that gives it a golden-like shine, he won’t share it with anyone, no Cassian, stop asking. He knows what colors work with his complexion and what silhouettes enhance his not buff but very defined muscles in a subtle yet you can’t ignore it way. He knows what works, but he’s the best at making it seem like he doesn’t know and it’s just how he woke up. Lucien has the what I just rolled out of bed and put the first thing on really vibe nailed to perfection
Rhys: He cares a lot and he knows you know and he doesn’t care. Self proclaimed Prythian’s hottest High Lord will drop on you his 15 step skin care routine, will facemask twice a week, homemade, with plants, herbs, roots and fruits courtesy of Elain’s garden, how do you think I don’t have wrinkles with all the stress and anxiety I constantly have; and will give you a closet tour of all his black suits if you ask.. and he will judge you if you think they are all black and the same. How dare you this is not “black” this is ebony, this other one is raven, my absolute favorite is midnight (duh), then we have sable and obsidian. That high fae given eyesight really got wasted on you. And also, Feyre where is my ink black suit?// I left it on the bed //no that’s not it, that’s my jade black suit, honestly woman.
Cassian: Doesn’t really care, but he looks nice and will make an effort when required. I mean he has a couple of suits, they hug his ass and that’s all he cares about. Used to have an all in shampoo conditioner, until Mor and Rhys bullied him into getting a shampoo and a conditioner. Even Az was like Bro, c’mon. Each one of them got Cass hair products for winter solstice once. Now his man bun is as nice ass his other man bun. Tried asking Lucien for his secret, what secret this is just how I woke up. The definition of scrubs up hella nice. Perfect mixture of nice but rough on the edges with a 5pm shadow, hair down (or in the preferred man bun) and a delicious suit. Will always always roll up his sleeves. He knows what it does to the people. Ok whore. Very much into skin brushing. He said no to dead skin cells and yes to good circulation. Weekly massages. The body is a temple ok?
Azriel: He wants you to think he doesn’t care, but he does and he will spend time getting ready for the events, more than he will ever admit. Listen if Lucien is the 10/10 you would never guess that he actually pays attention to this, then Az is like the 8/10. A man of details and has a great eye for color and pattern combinations. No you will not ever catch him in a full bright colored suit, but he enjoys going for different textures and colors albeit dark ones. He looks particularly good in blue and green. Once Mor asked him to accompany her to an event and he came in wearing a merlot velvet three piece suit and no one has been able to stop talking about it.It’s been three centuries. My man served. He will coordinate with you in a subtle way like did they plan that or?? He knows the value of a good aesthetic, but won’t go raving about it, like a certain High Lord.
Helion: KING OF AESTHETIC. COMMITTED TO HIS AESTHETIC FROM HEAD TO TOE, TO HIS HOUSE AND PEGASUS(ES) AND CHARIOTS AND ALL. Not a hair out of fucking place. Sweatpants? I don’t know them. Ew. One must always dress to impress. What do I wear when I want to chill? have you ever worn a toga? It’s either a Toga or nothing, I happen to have nothing in my rooms. Will host parties where the dress code is bohemian chic meets royaltycore, and everyone is like ????????????????????????
Kallias: I mean yes I want to look good, yes I will dress up when the occasion calls for it. But generally speaking no one has ever achieved the balance between comfort and put together like Kallias. Also immaculate immaculate skin. Big believer in face rollers and gua shas. Gave the each member of the Night Court their own set, they all deeply appreciate it.
Tarquin: Of course I fucking care, but the Cauldron did not give me these looks for nothing so I won’t do much really. Sunblock and water. Will, however, try out new styles here and there, in the privacy of his own home and court and if they prove to be a success, then you will see him wearing that to the official Prythian meetings. Will do a 180 on you and appear proper af during the meetings, but in the parties he will show up wearing exquisite jewellery and a long skirt. Dude can rock a skirt. Dude also wears dresses. Looks nice. Will most definitely outshine you. Will neither confirm nor deny that once Az approached him asking him where he got that dress. Will always get the assignment when it comes to Helion’s parties.
Jurian: Pre-amarantha accessory used to be a I have a set of fighting clothes/armour whatever, and the nicer set of those for *political* occasions kinda dude. Post amarantha accessory is more like maybe I will invest in that nice jacket green jacket with gold details, fuck you vassa I did not buy it to match Lucien.
Tamlin: Will show up to the MET Gala in a “black” tuxedo regardless of the theme.

Lucien lounging on a couch. Impeccably dressed with a slightly rakish demeanor.
Shirt partially unbuttoned for the aesthetic he's going for. He doesn't think she would notice, but it's worth a try. Lucien wants her to see him as a male. Hers and only hers.
Lucien has a glass of wine in one hand, and in the other he's running his fingers through his hair.
His eyes have a certain glow about them as he watches Elain from across the room.
Elain looks positively radiant today. Every time she strolls back into the room, his breath catches slightly. Gorgeous.
Her smile could end darkness itself.
Lucien sees a slight spark in her eyes when their eyes meet.
Only for that spark to turn into cold indifference within seconds when she turns her back to him.
But he knows it's not true indifference. He knows her heart. Just as she knows his. The bond that ties them ensures that.
Fate is a cruel mistress. It always has been.
He knows he can't truly stay away. Elain owns part of his soul. Now and forever.
Lucien longs for the day the salt of the sea, and vibrant gardens fill his days with joy and beauty.
One day it shall be theirs.

hey queen...... how’s werewolf!lucien going? asking for a friend 👀
He's good. Frolicking in the forest, howling at the moon.
I kinda have a plot, but I started reading A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire and unlike From Blood and Ash I'm very much sucked in. Unpopular opinion, but I really disliked the first book until they made it to the Blood Forest.
Anyway, werewolf!Lucien is happily chillin in my docs awaiting me to work on him 🧡🧡🧡

Lucien whispering all sorts of sweet nothings to Elain is an aesthetic.

HC: Lucien is good with animals.
Don't even tell me he isn't. Imagine him just sitting on some Autumn leaves with Jesminda and they're petting a fox or something 🥺

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by the High Lord of Night’s official policy that any price is worth paying to ensure that the 5-7 (depending on the day) people he cares about are alright:

and the stars light up the night
Elain was bone tired, eyes drooping and mouth hanging open and she hoped no one is looking at her because she knew how dumb she looks. She’s so close to falling asleep, the pages of her book warm against her fingers and the gentle lulling of the AC is so soothing. She startles awake again when the sound of a book dropping onto the table scares her. She gasps and opens her eyes, sitting up straight and turning her head towards the sound, seeing the culprit on the other side of the table.
Heat floods her cheeks, her stomach flipping and twisting when he meets her gaze.
He looks tired, dark circles under his amber eyes, his lips bitten and chapped, red hair tied back into a messy bun. The long-sleeved shirt he’s wearing hugs his muscled chest and arms, and Elain can’t help but ogle him for a moment. Lucien raises a brow at her, smirking, and Elain wonders if the floor might be nice enough to just swallow her up.
“Hi,” Lucien says, voice deep and husky and heat fills Elain from the top of her head to the tips of her toes. “Hello,” Elain squeaks, flushing bright pink, a shy smile on her lips. He smiles back at her and motions to the chair he’s standing in front of with a long-fingered hand. “Mind if I sit here?” he asks and Elain shakes her head and motions for him to sit before trying to focus, again, on the book she’s trying to read.
She gives up after realizing she’s read the same line four time and she let’s out a harsh sigh, pressing her fingertips against her temples. She can already feel the pressure of a headache forming. You can do this E, she tells herself, just get through this final and you’ll be fine until January.
She can feel Lucien looking at her and when she opens his eyes to look back he doesn’t look away, he just keeps staring. A few strands of hair have fallen out of his bun and curls against his sharp jaw and her fingers twitch with the incessant need to reach over and tuck it back into his bun. The need to touch him coupled with her tiredness and the headache makes her snap out, “Can I help you?” in a harsher tone than she intended.
She immediately wants to take the words back, wants to stuff them back into where they belong but he doesn’t seem hurt, just confused. He tilts his head to the side and his lips curl up in amusement.
“Just wondering if you’re okay but I guess you already answered that.” Elain huffs and leans back in her seat, arms crossed over her chest and lower lip pushed out into a slight pout. She feels a small thrill of pleasure when she notices the way his eyes dart to her mouth before going down to her chest and then back up to her eyes.
“Just tired,” she mumbles, “and this dumb stupid book is kicking my ass and boring me to death and if I don’t pass this fucking test with at least a B-plus I’m boycotting the rest of the semester.” The words come out of her in a rush and she blushes in mortification and drops her head down to bury her face into her hands, her cheeks hot against her palms. She can hear Lucien laughing and she picks up a hand to give him the middle-finger and he laughs harder.
Elain refuses to admit that he has a very nice laugh, warm and homey and raspy, the kind of laugh that makes you want to laugh along with him.
She doesn’t look up again until he’s finished laughing and even then, she does so cautiously, brow slightly furrowed and cheeks still pink. He smiles when he notices her warily watching him, only brown eyes and puckered brow visible. “Hi, dove,” he says, voice a soft coo and Elain flushes more and her heart beats a little faster and she may be melting and- no!
She is not that type of girl that falls for any guy that shows her a bit of attention. Not anymore. And so she looks up at him fully and raises a brow and summons her best Nesta look, cool and indifferent and not interested. “My names not dove,” she says, head tilted to the side and he’s silent for a moment before answering.
“I know it’s not, Elain” - she ignores the small trill she feels when he says her name - “but dove suits you, so.” He trails off with a shrug and a small smirk, like he’s daring her to contradict him. And she wants to, Gods does she want to, but the way he says dove? She wants him to say it again and again.
She stays silent and just watches him for a second or two before shrugging and saying “Okay, Lucy” with a small smile. Lucien frowns, brow furrowed before he snorts, shaking his head at her. “Only you, dove,” he mutters, and his smile is different now. Softer, warmer, fonder.
Elain realizes she can get used to dove, if Lucien is the one saying it.

Me rereading ACOMAF just to get the end, you know, the Cauldron scene, just to get to ACOWAR, just to read about Elucien -
- meanwhile being stuck in middle of Feysands mating frenzy that my 15-year-old self went nuts about.

Ok so idk why I’m this confident in my ship but at this point I don‘t even understand anymore how people believe Elucien wouldn‘t happen. Like are we actually reading the same books?

Hi! I love Lucien and you love Lucien, therefore I love you! Your blog is everything, thank you so much for the time you put into your posts 💕🦊
Aww, thank you sm. I just got all these thoughts piling up over the day and need to get them out of my head somehow. Plus, Lucien is still suuuper underrated & misunderstood by many so I‘m just spreading some positivity about a character that deserves the world. 🦊😉
