I think some are greatly underestimating how much SJM likes Elain
Cauldron loves her and literally purring in her presence
Fan favorite Lucien is her mate
More powers she may have we have yet to learn
She had her stab the King Hybern aka Kingslayer
Giving her the coolest aesthetic
Fan favorite Azriel has loved Mor for 500 yrs but in walks Elain and 😍
SJM picked Elain to watch Netflix with!
Please add to my list if you would like :)

The most disappointing thing is seeing a good-looking and intriguing-sounding fanfic on my dash, and then seeing ‘Evil Elain who is a bitch to Nesta’ right off the bat or Elain and Lucien in some forced marriage situation, or some Gwynriel nonsense, or some lowkey anti Elain theme running through, just because it’s apparently the thing to do?
And I close the fanfic and move on.

I just wanna know why the Elucien tag is just filled with Gwyn/riel posts and only a sprinkle of actual Elain x Lucien content 🙄
I’m still more convinced Elriel is endgame, but I have always loved the idea of Elain (who can be associated with the sun/sunlight) with the heir to the DAY court, so I went to browse the Elucien tag to read more theories and I was just barraged with Gwyn/riel content… I didn’t necessarily want to, but I may need to filter my tags so I don’t see these posts anymore…
I wish I could shut my eyes and wake up to the day when the next book’s plot is revealed so I can escape this madness.

I couldn't tell if she was looking at his blue Siphon or at his scarred skin beneath as she breathed,

✨Thank you Katja for this absolute masterpiece. I am forever grateful! Thank you for bringing to life my vision, and making it even better.
This piece is inspired by the above scene, reimagined in a future where Elain and Azriel have found their happiness together-- the triumph of choice over so-called fate.
As always, this is for my Elriels🌸🦇

The Inner Circle’s favorite thing to do is excite a pregnant Elain just to watch her powers glow with joy. The imagery is one Azriel conjures up on his darkest days.
-Elain Archeron at Rosehall during her birthday, pregnant with her first child. The dress was a gift from her loving husband, Azriel, who is as besotted with her as she is with the gardens at the estate, and as fire loves innocence, and as secrets love to be told.

ELAIN, THE KINGSLAYER
Elain stepped out of a shadow behind him, and rammed Truth-Teller to the
hilt through the back of the king’s neck as she snarled in his ear, “Don’t you
touch my sister.”
Friends and I commissioned this piece from lovely @vinc_ry on Instagram.

Baby Nyx and his Lovely Auntie Elain
There isn't enough of them out in the world so I said "Fine I'll do it myself".
It was such a joy drawing these two because I know that Elain would love to nurture and teach this little light that they were blessed with.
Nyx will grow up knowing the basics of botany and medicinal uses for certain plants. He'll run around careful not to step on flowers, and insist on wishing on every dandelion 💕
As always, please like and reblog💙 I'll be posting it in Instagram also very shortly.

Dear Acotar Fandom, why..
It will always
“Azriel deserve to be happy and end up with someone better than Elain. She cant even handle Azriel’s darkness and have personality as a plastic plant. With everything Azriel went through, he need someone as strong as him, like Gwyn”
“Elain is a bitch for treating Lucien that way. Can she just accept the mating bond so that Lucien can be happy. God he suffer much already, my poor foxboy”
“I hope Tamlin get his own redemption arc because he is just a misunderstood man. Everyone deserve a second chance. Thats why i ship him with Elain because she is submissive and have everything that Tamlin always wanted. Ohh and also she likes flower and Tamlin is the high lord of spring.”
“Elain deserve happiness as much as other character. She deserve to be with someone she loves and loves her back. She has the same trauma as Nesta and yet she handles it silently and never cruel to anyone. She is one of the strongest character and i cant wait to read about her”

"Elain doesn't belong in the Night Court..."
I think what people fail to acknowledge within this statement is how much time Sarah has put in to driving the point home that peoples perception of Elain vs. the reality are two very separate things.
“Elain was like a dog, loyal to whatever master kept her fed and in comfort.”
“Nesta was wrong, Cassian realized, to think Elain as loyal and loving as a dog. Elain saw every single thing Nesta had done, and understood why.”
“But Elain … The Spring Court had been made for someone like her.”
“But she hadn’t hesitated to come. When Feyre had offered to let her remain home, Elain had squared her shoulders and declared that she was a part of this court—and would do whatever was needed.”
“Elain said, “Then I will find it. I might require some time to … reacquaint myself with my powers, but I could start today.” - “Absolutely not,” Nesta spat, fingers curling at her sides. “Absolutely not.”
“Azriel stiffened, an outright sign of temper from him as he said quietly, “There is an innate darkness to the Dread Trove that Elain should not be exposed to.”
“Including Elain, who is more than capable of defending herself against the darkness of the Trove, if she chooses to. Don’t underestimate her.”
“But I wonder if everyone has spent so long assuming Elain is sweet and innocent that she felt she had to be that way or else she'd disappoint you all. ” He sighed toward the ceiling. “With time and safety, perhaps we ’ll see a different side of her emerge."
ACOSF & Feysand POV, really took the time to point out that what her sisters and some of the IC think about Elain only to get dissproven/unveiled. The same will stand for this statement of fitting in, this is said to some variety a few times throughout the series and it will be yet another misconception about her character.
Elain is finally pushing back against who people think she is or should be.
“Enchanted gloves,” she read from the card. “That won’t tear or become too sweaty while gardening.” She set aside the box without looking at it for longer than a moment. And I wondered if she preferred to have torn and sweaty hands, if the dirt and cuts were proof of her labor. Her joy.”
“I didn’t dare mention that if she had been wearing the enchanted gloves Lucien had gotten her last Solstice, nothing would have pierced them at all.”
“And torn up by thorns,” I mused, recalling a morning this past summer when Elain had come into the house, her right palm bleeding from several gashes thanks to a stubborn rosebush that had pierced her gloves. The thorns had broken off in her skin, leaving sharp splinters that I’d had to pull free.”
She is going to do what she wants, whether she gets her hands a little dirty or whether others agree with her, I believe that it what SJM is really leading up to with these scenes, there is a lot of thorns beneath the surface.
“Elain, mourn as she might for the life she would have had with Graysen, had found a place, a role here. Tending to the gardens of Feyre’s veritable palace on the river, helping other residents of Velaris restore their own destroyed gardens—she had purpose, and joy, and friends: those two half-wraiths who worked in Rhysand’s household. But those things had always come easily to her sister. Had always made Elain special.”
Elain has been said to be not only adapting but thriving with joy and purpose within The Night Court, but she also seems to understand and empathise with the people within the court and it's traditions, even more so than its own High Lady.
The day people stop treating Elain like so shallow, bland, flower child will be the day I sleep soundly. She is insanely wise as both Feyre and Mor have said before, her depth is much beyond the surface, yet people still weakly claim theres nothing to her.
READ THE BOOKS, STOP SKIMMING THE IMPORTANT THINGS FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT. PLS I BEG. You do her such a disservice.
“It’s their tradition, though,” Elain countered, her face still flushed with the cold. “One that they fought and died to protect in the war. Perhaps that’s the better way to think of it, rather than feeling guilty. To remember that this day means something to them. All of them, regardless of who has more, who has less, and in celebrating the traditions, even through the presents, we honor those who fought for its very existence, for the peace this city now has.”
For a moment, I just stared at my sister, the wisdom she’d spoken. Not a whisper of those oracular abilities. Just clear eyes and an open expression. “You’re right,” I said, taking in the insignia rising before me.”
Also as a side-note, all the characters at one point or another have felt out of place, even two of the chore members Az (still probably feeling it) & Feyre, so this whole argument is nonsense to me.
“I don’t really know where I fit in anymore,” I admitted, perhaps only because the wind was screeching around us and Rhys had already winnowed ahead to where Cassian’s dark form flew—beyond the wall. "I’ve been alive almost five and a half centuries, and I’m not sure of that, either,” Azriel said.”
Elain Archeron is going to belong where she decides and with who she decides. A huge part of her ARC is going to be about choice [irregardless of who you believe she will end up with, it will be her choice], and the fact that people constantly disregard her own words/choices in favour of Nesta or Cassian's quotes is beyond confusing to me.
Elain could choose the Spring Court, the Autumn Court, the Day Court, the Night Court, heck even the Winter Court but it won't be because Cassian thinks she doesn't suit the colour black or anyone else. *eyeroll emoji*

🤭Don't do it!😩
When you get brave and dive into the acotar tags you decided to unfollow a couple of months ago for your own peace...😳
and now you reading some stuffy arse bullshit that just prompts you to genuinely ask questions and then flip some tables over😩😂😂
And then responses that come back at you have you feeling like you are doing an experiment where the equations aren't making sense and now you and peace are playing f☕cken tag👀
And then you remember that not everyone who can read a 700 page book can actually read with comprehension... And ignorance is truely bliss for some, sounding all sorts of misaligned woke and shit
😂😂😂I'm never gonna look at anyone buying the same ACOTAR book as me, or reading the same ACOTAR book as me in the same joy and light I used to😂😂😂 yo it could be another one of them delusional souls out in them streets😂😂😂
And before anyone jumps on their high horse to go Sparta on me for saying what I said.
!!!!Oh and Happy FriYay!!!☺️

Azriel, who never give his "truth-teller" to anyone (not even to mor with whom he was in love for 500 years) gave it to Elain.
Azriel put his life in danger to save Elain from hybern
Azriel stayed up late listening to elain's plan for her garden.
Feyre thought Elain would love valeris though she probably will cling to azriel for peace and quiet.
Feyre saw the painting in her mind: the death and his lovely fawn.
Nesta knew why azriel won't go near the fire, saw the pain in his eyes. His secret to tell, never hers.
Nesta noticed that something charged went between azriel and Elain.
Even when azriel was badly injured, his primal concern was to get those chains off Elain.
Azriel would beg on his knees for a chance to taste Elain.
Azriel came to the doorway as if he had heard elain's laugh and wanted to know the cause.
Feyre thinks that Elain and azriel would look so handsome together.
Every night, azriel looks at the headache powder which elain gifted before going to bed.
Elain made azriel laugh and feyre had never heard such sound, deep and joyous. She has never seen his hazel eyes so bright, the hues of green amid the brown and gray like veins of emerald.
Azriel put rocks in snow balls to throw at rhys because rhys ordered him to stay away from Elain.
Even after three days of that fight with rhys, azriel was stone-faced and wouldn't even give a smile to Nesta.
"I thought it was obvious"

Azriel’s hand slid up her neck, burying in her thick hair. Tilting her face the way he wanted it. Elain’s mouth parted slightly, her eyes scanning his before fluttering shut.

That Court of Nightmares palace bath has always sounded so beautiful to me. Pair that with the thought of Azriel indulging Elain in all the scenery the world has to offer and voilá - romantic, scenic, intimate experiences.
My favourite ship for Elain? Oh, I’ll let you all figure that out.

It's very interesting how SJM structured ACSF to show us other characters assumptions about Elain x truth about Elain.
Elain was like
a dog, loyal to whatever master kept her fed and in comfort.
Nesta was wrong, Cassian realized, to think Elain as loyal and loving as
a dog. Elain saw every single thing Nesta had done, and understood why.
But Elain … The Spring Court had been made for someone like her.
Elain: When Feyre had offered to let
her remain home, Elain had squared her shoulders and declared that she was
a part of this court—and would do whatever was needed.
What would Elain think, to see Nesta here with a friend? The thought
bubbled up from nowhere. As if in opening her mind, it had rushed toward
her. Would Elain be pleased, or would she feel the need to warn Gwyn about
Nesta’s true self?
Elain: “So I’m very pleased to hear
of this Valkyrie business. I’m happy that Nesta finds interest in something
Unfortunately, a lot of anti comments about Elain are based on these few lines that are other characters assumptions, but we need to take into consideration what SJM was intending to tell us.
But how can we be sure about this? Because, as I said, SJM not only showed other characters assumptions about Elain, but she told us about them in Feyre's bonus chapter:
This is why Elain's actions that can't be described as "sweet" are often described as a "surprise" by other characters:
Elain—Elain—had taken up Azriel’s dagger and killed the King of Hybern
Amren’s eyes narrowed slightly. (...) Elain, to my surprise, held Amren’s gaze. (...) Elain’s face reddened further, her back straightening. But she didn’t bolt.
Elain, surprisingly, held her ground.
Basically SJM is showing and telling us that most of the other characters (and readers) assumed Elain one way and don't expect more of her. But there's more to Elain than meets the eye.
"Including Elain that is more than capable (...) Don't underestimate her."
And this makes so much sense with Elain's character, especially when he consider:
Her too-thin shoulders seemed to curve inward. “No one ever does. No one ever looked
—not really.” A bramble of words. Her voice strained to a whisper. “He did. He saw me.
He will not now. (ACOWAR)
