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 馃槀
Awww what a compliment鈥攖hank you so much! What are your favourite E&L scenes?! Xxx

hello! hope you're having an amazing day 馃グ
just wondering, will you stop writing Nessian fiction after your finish e&a?
btw this is my first ask to you, so i just wanted to say that I'm currently pretending that acosf never existed and that your work is the canon version, i love everything about it. THAT is a well developed healing and romantic story!
Hello 馃憢 Thank you for sending me your first ask! And I鈥檓 glad you鈥檙e enjoying E&L!
No, I won鈥檛 stop writing Nessian FF after I finish E&L, I have a few other one-shots up my sleeve, don鈥檛 worry 鈽猴笍

Do you know when we鈥檒l get the next update? I did a reread to hold myself off, but I think it might have made the need worse 馃槀
Maybe next Sunday? And that鈥檚 a maybe鈥 It鈥檚 coming together but slowly atm (it鈥檚 a good chapter though if I may say so myself!)
I鈥檓 sorry the reread has made it worse though. Was that just the chapter? I know a few people are rereading the entire thing to tide them over, so if you did that鈥 major kudos!

Happy reading!

Do you have plans for a 鈥渂ook 2鈥 of embers and lights? Like a second installment in the EL universe?
No, but I will be writing a few one-shots 鈽猴笍 I always intended to write Nesta鈥檚 healing journey and Nessian growing together, one that鈥檚 done there won鈥檛 be a story to tell any longer 鉂わ笍

Are you planning on taking a break once you finish Embers & Lights?
Yes, I probably will just so I can try and get my sleep pattern back to normal 馃槀 But then I鈥檒l be writing again. I have lots of one-shot WIP鈥檚 that I want to finish. Plus the final instalment of Habits!

Hey! Just a few questions for your E&L fanfic
Do you plan on having Gwyn and Nes meet? Or do you have any plans for reintroducing the Valkyries in your fic? And who do you ship wax with, since I can鈥檛 entirely decide if it鈥檚 Elain or Mor, (that鈥檚 why I asked if you鈥檙e going to include Gwyn, so that gwynriel can happen or the Valkyries), or if you have some other plans for him
No, I don鈥檛 plan for Gwyn and Nesta to meet, but trust me when I say that they will meet in the E&L universe at some point. I won鈥檛 be writing about it, but Gwyn is always in Nesta鈥檚 future timeline, if that makes sense?
I ship Gwynriel... but I also don鈥檛 deny the projection of Azriel鈥檚 POV in ACOSF, which means the attraction between Elriel is very much a living, breathing thing in E&L... Until, of course, Gwyn and Azriel meet in the universe鈥檚 future... which would make things far more complicated.
I hope that makes sense?

Just saw someone who found some popular fanfiction registered on Goodreads as an actual book and now I鈥檓 like- we NEED to make E&L to Goodreads. WE NEED. SOMEONE START THAT COVER !!!
Hahaha I feel like to put my fanfic on Goodreads would be highly disrespectful to Sarah J Maas @fangirlishwandering, but I love that you would like to see E&L on there 鉂わ笍鉂わ笍 Unfortunately, it could mean SJM could sue me (her characters, her universe!) so I鈥檓 happy having E&L on Tumblr and A03.
But if someone wants to draw me a fanart I鈥檓 not going to say no...! I鈥檝e already been spoiled by @elle-bo-illustration

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how perfect and mind-melting Cassian and Nesta's first kiss was?! I re-read the scene this morning and ended up reading the whole damn chapter! I tried to pick and choose the quote to shorten the post, but in all honesty I just wanted to post half the chapter!! "Somehow, Cassian knew what was going to happen before it did. He couldn鈥檛 even say who initiated it, only that their heads tilted and dipped in unison, like two magnets inexplicably and undeniably drawn to one another. It was slow and scorching, the intensity of it so immediate that Cassian felt like he was suspended in time鈥 hovering. And he knew鈥 he knew that they were meant for this, he and Nesta. They were meant for one another from the instant their open lips brushed, from the way that they moulded together like they had been kissing for centuries... If Cassian had ever doubted their mating bond, he wasn鈥檛 now." UGH THIS CHAPTER SO BEAUTIFUL AND SO HOT!
Arghhh I loved writing that first kissing scene @princessconsuela02! I was always so worried it would be too out of the blue but I always knew that was exactly how it was going to happen鈥攁s soon as they got in bed together and their limbs were tangled鈥攖here was no fighting the inevitable.
Cassian deserves an award for his blue balls in that chapter 馃槀馃槀

1) Congratulations on your wedding (soon to be)! Even covid can't stop love. 馃憖that sounded dumb but you know what I mean
2) I had a lot of favorite parts but I knew I'd miss them so I just reread some chapters and I'm going off of memory here, but here goes....
When Nesta said Azriel looks like he's been carved from stone and Cassian looks like he was dragged backwards through a bush
When Nesta wore 馃巼that dress馃巼 at the meeting with Kallon and Cassian is 馃槏. Then when Nesta defends Cassian under the lie of a fake dating scenario and I was like 馃槏
Nesta calling Roksana, "sinta" (if it's spelled cinta I apologize. It's very late). Speaking of Roksana- that time Nesta put ribbons in her hair and had her pick out the color *chef's kiss*
When Cassian applied the salve to Nesta's back and saw the scars and went into attack and protect mode馃ズ
The first smut scene馃グ馃槶鉂
The second smut scene馃サ馃尪馃尪馃尪馃尪馃尪馃尪馃槇馃槇馃槇
I have more I'm just sleepy. I knew I'd forget to send this is though if I didn't do it now.
Hey girl 馃憢 Thank you for sending over your fave moments in your sleep deprived state! Hahaha I forgot the comment about Cassian looking like he鈥檇 been dragged through a bush backwards. Fuckkk 馃槀馃槀 I need to bring back Nesta鈥檚 biting comments *scribbles furiously into a notepad*
I鈥檓 currently writing the smut for chapter 37/38 and I can confirm 馃敟馃敟馃サ馃サ
Oh and thank you RE the wedding @arinbelle!

Favourite E&L bits
'In the distance, Feyre and Rhys stepped out of the cottage but they halted as they spied she and Cassian in the paddock鈥攖he way she had allowed him to embrace her.'
As before ACOSF messes up, E&L rides to the rescue!
Note from duskandstarlight: I personally loved ACOSF. Plot issues for sure, but I couldn鈥檛 help but give a lovely moment in E&L between Nessian here and get others to witness the softness...
