I will never get over that Rhysand's mother made all of Feyre's gowns.
Here is an Illyrian woman, suffering in an unhappy marriage to a cruel High Lord, doing everything she can to make her future daughter-in-law feel welcome in the only way she knows how.
His eyes were star-bright. "Long ago, when I was still a boy, she made them-- all your gowns. A trousseau for my future bride." His throat bobbed. "Every piece... Every piece I have ever given you to wear, she made them. For you."
It is customary for a bridal trousseau to be prepared by the bride. Yet Rhys' mother made one for her. No wonder Rhys loves to spit on tradition; his mother threw tradition right out the window to make sure his bride would feel loved one day.
She carved out a place for Feyre before she even existed.

One of the odder moments I’ve had in court recently was the day earlier this week when someone crashed their car into the electrical pole outside the courthouse, cutting us off from the power grid. We have backup generators, so we could still work, but all day we would have brief blackouts while they worked on reconnecting us. Mostly these were just flickers.
But midafternoon I was standing in the District Court, which has no exterior windows...and every light went out at once. I was in the middle of an argument. The only light in the room was my laptop, opposing counsel, the judge, and the court reporter’s laptops. We all just stood there for a second, looking at each other, and then the court reporter went, “I’m....still recording...” so we just carried on with the hearing by the glow of our laptops, lit like we were holding flashlights under our faces to tell scary stories in the dark.

Um I was really wondering why you don't like feyre because she's the one most concerned about nesta???? And see myself a lot in feyre so it hurts when is see ppl dragging her.
okay so there are a lot of reasons why i dont like feyre. the way she treated nesta is just one of them.
the way she treated nesta
tore down nesta's home and insulted it as well
imprisoned her in the house of wind
did the same thing that tamlin did to her
if she really wanted to help nesta why couldn't she have had that intervention without rhysand and amren
the first thing she did after banishing nesta and tearing down her house was have sex with rhysand...
there's probably more but i can't remember them right now. acosf was horrid and i spent a lot of time trying to purge it from my head.
other reasons i dont like feyre
actually compared to everything else, the way she treated nesta is low on my list of reasons.
1. the way she ruined the spring court
she tore it all down because she wanted to get back at Tamlin..but what about all the other innocent people there? what about all the other people she left vulnerable to Hybern? she got a sentry whipped because she wanted to make Ianthe and Tamlin look bad.. she destroyed the faith Tamlin's people had in him in the middle of a fucking war. ( yet another reason why she shouldn't be high lady )
2. the way she ruined the summer court
when she crippled the spring court, it allowed Hybern to bring his forces in and we all know what happened after that. Summer suffered massively because of Feyre's actions. Then there's the way she treated Tarquin after the battle at Adriata, which i wont write about because it makes me too angry.
3. the way she treated lucien
she treated lucien like shit on numerous occasions. she used him to make tamlin jealous. as far as i can remember feyre knew of the SA lucien had suffered and still continued to use him.
when she learned about the BoE she made fun of him and insulted all three of them. she couldnt be happy that Lucien had made friends outside of the night court i guess. she belittled him and his friends even when all he wanted to do was wish her a happy solstice.
4. ALMOST HAD SEX IN A LIBRARY FULL OF SEXUAL ASSUALT SURVIVORS.
5. GAVE RHYSAND A BLOWJOB IN A TENT SURROUNDED BY DYING PEOPLE.
why just why.
6. after feysand happened practically everything was about rhysand
this is more on sjm's writing but made me dislike feyre.
7. behavior at the high lords meeting.
they called the meeting to show that they could be trusted and that they aren't working for the enemy but during the meeting the night court harmed ( or used magic on ) 4 people.
8. the way as high lady she treats the CoN
she is the high lady of the night court. the night court includes the court of nightmares. the way they continue to let the people of the CoN rot under that mountain is quite disgusting. The way feysand treats the entire population of the CoN like shit and doesn't consider that there are innocent people trapped there... yuck .
im sure there are many more people that have explained these better than i have
if you want a more comprehensive explanation on this stuff @worldsnotsaid has some great posts on the matter.
also very sorry it took me so long to answer this ask
