18 and 20 for the ask game?
Hi nonnie 🖤
18. Does not shipping something ‘popular’ mean you’re in denial and/or biased?
Of course not! It means you have different preferences and/or enjoy a different dynamic.
We can't all like the same thing, can we?
20. What is the purest ship in the fandom?
I can't choose between Genya and David & Wylan and Jesper, so ✨them✨

4 for the salty ask game please (:
4. Do you have a NoTP in your fandom? Are they a popular OTP?*
Malina is my NoTP for a plethora of reasons, but mostly because I consider the friends to lovers trope incredibly boring and I also think Mal is an asshole very reminiscent of real world assholes, which in Fantasy simply does nothing for me.
If I wanted to date an average man from my hometown, I'd go to a pub and meet one - I don't care to read about it.
In terms of the popularity of the ship, I think it depends on who you ask, but Darklina, Kanej, and Helnik definitely have a bigger reach within the fandom.

I have some salt! Petty me likes to snark that if the endgame love interest is so good his name shouldn’t mean “bad” in French
Malina means "raspberry" in my language, so do what you will with that information - I just think it's neat.
For real though, coming from the Harry Potter fandom where JK Rowling was pretty serious about names and what they mean for a character; I think it's so fucking funny that Mal means "bad" in a lot of languages, but I also don't think Leigh meant to convey any particular message with names.

for the salt ask meme: 5) Has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you? and 7) Is there anything you used to like but can’t stand now?
Hi bb 🖤
5. Has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you?
Thankfully, no!
I've always been very lucky with my ships and my fandom experiences have been overwhelmingly positive so far, which I know isn't the case with a lot of people in the SaB fandom - especially for some Darklina shippers.
I'm truly grateful for the community I have on this blog, the friends I've made, and the fact my inbox is filled with amazing Darklina prompts, Ben Barnes thirsting, and ideas for meta rather than any hate whatsoever.
If anything, the fandom made me love Aleksander and Alina even more!
7. Is there anything you used to like but can’t stand now?
I used to be really into love triangles as a trope, but now I find them quite boring and repetitive and I'm so much more on board with the type of love where people are so into each other they'd burn the whole world to a crisp for the other person with no remorse.
Redemption arcs also don't do it for me anymore and I find corruption arcs and being unapologetically power-hungry really exciting in the realm of Fantasy.

I’m so annoying lol but I’m the stats anon and the picture just crossed 300,000 likes (90,000 more than any other post) and the sab account posted a clip of Mal and Alina and it hasn’t even reached 200,000 views in 2 days never mind likes anyway that’s enough petty for one day. For the salt ask thing 21 ❤️
Ah, there's my daily War Report! I love to see it 🖤
21. What are your thoughts on crack ships?
Some of them disturb me to no end - especially some Harry Potter crack ships I've seen over the years, or some interesting ones that popped up after the show came out like Inej x Aleksander - but ultimately who am I to rain on anyone's parade?
I don't want to spoil anyone's fun, not when it's a fantasy world and it truly doesn't matter; go where your muse takes you, is all I have to say about it.

For anyone else who is interested, the following are quotes from Shadow and Bone that describe what it is like for Alina to interact with a living amplifier such as Aleksander, Baghra, or the Corporalnik who originally tested her. It would not be unfounded to believe it feels similar for other Grisha as well. 
I felt the Darkling’s fingers close around my bare wrist. Suddenly, my fear receded. It was still there, cringing like an animal inside me, but it had been pushed aside by something calm and sure and powerful, something vaguely familiar. - Chapter Three
“The Darkling is a living amplifier,” Fedyor said. “That’s what you felt.”
I remembered the surety of that had flooded through me with the Darkling’s touch, and that strangely familiar sensation of a call echoing through me, a call that demanded an answer. - Chapter Four
The Darkling caught my arm and his bare hand slid into mine. I felt that same powerful certainty wash through me and then the Darkling’s call, pure and compelling, demanding an answer. -  Chapter Seven
When Baghra fastened her bony hand around my wrist, I realized instantly that she was an amplifier like the Darkling. I felt the same jolting surety flood through me  - Chapter Nine
The woman in red had been an amplifier. That was why the Darkling’s call had felt familiar.  - Chapter Twelve
One moment, I was staring into his slate-colored eyes, and the next, his lips were pressed to mine. I felt that familiar sense of surety melt through me as my body sang with sudden heat and my heart jumped into a skittery dance. - Chapter Thirteen
He reached out and touched Morozova’s collar, letting his long fingers spread over the rough bone, then slide up my neck to cradle my face with one hand. I felt a jolt of revulsion, but I also felt the sure, intoxicating force of him. I hated that it still had an effect on me. - Chapter 21
He raised his other hand to cup my face and kissed me softly, gently, and though everything in me rebelled, I let him. I hated him. I feared him. But still I felt the strange tug of his power, and I couldn’t stop the hungry response of my own treacherous heart. - Chapter 21

hey sweets,10, 19 and 22 for the ask game regarding sab.
Hi love 🖤
10. Most disliked arc? Why?
Without question, it would be Alina's arc.
She deserved so much better than this tired notion that wanting power is in and of itself corrupt and dirty, no matter what you'd want to use your power for.
After finishing Ruin and Rising, I couldn't shake the thought that the entire book read as "wanting more for yourself is wrong, moving away from a childhood ideal is wrong, having power is only okay if your significant other can match it".
Alina's arc is an ode to co-dependency.
19. What is the one thing you hate most about your fandom?
It's quite divided and people having differing opinions often turns into violence rather than a literary discussion, which can be very tiring.
22. Popular character you hate?
You'll hang me for this, but I have to say Zoya.

funniest thing about reading six of crows without reading the grisha trilogy is thinking alina was dead in some magic world and that’s why she was a saint, and that that story had happened at least fifty years ago…. and really alina is alive and well, and the story happened three years ago max lol

17 for salt asks, please? ♡
Beloved 🖤
17. Instead of XYZ happening, I would have made ABC happen…
Instead of Alina losing her powers at the end of Ruin and Rising, I would've made her Nikolai's spiritual advisor (throw the Apparat out on his ass) so she could use her Sainthood and Saviour status to influence a positive change towards the treatment of Grisha in Ravka and beyond.
I would've killed both Mal and Aleksander in the battle of the Fold - give Alina time to grow into her own and grieve before Aleksander is resurrected in King of Scars three years later.
In Rule of Wolves, I would've given Aleksander a proper redemption arc instead of whatever the fuck that mess was, then joined the Cult of Sankta Alina and the Cult of the Starless Saint, so that together, with Sankta Zoya of the Storm as Queen, they could end the war and persecution of Grisha once and for all.

There are a lot of people who still think that Fivan isn’t canon or that they were improved by the actors, so here’s an old interview with one of the writers of the show. 
~14:50 - ~16:20 They were discussing David and Genya and she mentioned along the lines that the writers’ room had come up with the idea of Fedyor and Ivan being together and the idea for that cookie scene.

What if Kaz and Inej were shipwrecked and needed to huddle for warmth?
It’s Inej who keeps him alive, as always.
The instant he hits the water, the panic fills him once more and he’s a child again, half dead and surrounded by bodies.
He only barely comes out of it at the sound of her voice, the way she’s calling his name.
Of course she’s already found a piece of her ship to hold on to, has, for some reason, tread water by him, waiting for him when she should be getting herself to shore. To safety.
