She would tuck Sam into her heart, a bright light for her to take out whenever things were darkest. And then she would remember how it had felt to be loved, when the world had held nothing but possibility. No matter what they did to her, they could never take that away.
The Assassin and the Empire by Sarah J. Maas

Some Friendly Reminders:
As Celaena was pacing around the house worried for Sam, he was barely alive
Before his eyes were gouged out, his last sight was not Celaena :(
His last words to her were "I love you"
On the other hand, he never got to hear her say "I love you" back
She never got to tell him about her origins and who she really was
Sam went against Arobynn just for Celaena to never be hurt again
In his last moments, he must've thought to himself "I am Sam Cortland and I will not be afraid."
Sam and Celaena were one contract away from their happy ending
When Celaena saw him after his death, she deemed his face unrecognizable
After his death, she took on his motto
Celaena's first visit to his grave was most likely her last as she ended up living in Terrasen
Arobynn requested specific things for Farran to do to Sam as torture
Sam never got to teach Celaena how to properly play cards
Sam was tortured for over 12 hours, in pain, wondering if he'd ever see Celaena again
And last but not least, let's be honest, although Rowan is Aelin's mate, Sam was definitely Celaena's

“Hello, Sam,” she breathed onto the river breeze.
“I miss you,” she said. “Every day, I miss you. And I wonder what you would have made of all this. Made of me. I think—I think you would have been a wonderful king. I think they would have liked you more than me, actually.” Her throat tightened. “I never told you—how I felt. But I loved you, and I think a part of me might always love you. Maybe you were my mate, and I never knew it. Maybe I’ll spend the rest of my life wondering about that. Maybe I’ll see you again in the Afterworld, and then I’ll know for sure. But until then … until then I’ll miss you, and I’ll wish you were here.”
if this isn't the most painful eulogy and confession I've ever read.

The Assassin’s Blade Thoughts
Wow. I finished the book but oh my god. I’m glad I paused the timeline to jump back and see that before moving on in the series but I really want to destroy Arobynn Hamel. I mean I know the guys King of the Assassins and all but Sam of all people?? he didn’t deserve that at all and I understand Celaena’s feelings over the situation a lot better after reading what happened.
And now I’ve gotta move on to Queen of Shadows and after the ending of Heir of Fire??? i just know in my bones that was not the worst ending of the series to come and that’s saying something considering what the king did to Dorian and Sorcha... Uh Oh™️

An Insider’s Guide to Throne of Glass: the Cleaver of the Deserted Land, the wide ravine lays cuts harshly through the monotonous landscape of the Red Desert just north of Xandria, the capital city of the Deserted Land and represents a considerable challenger to any travelers passing through. The Cleaver, and it’s eons of existence, is a feature of the Red Desert that cannot be crossed, leaving passers through  no choice but to go around it entirely, 1/?

“It was a lovely grave—simple, clean—and on the stone was written:
Sam Cortland
Beloved—not just by her, but by many.
Sam. Her Sam.”
i’m not okay [smiling through the pain]
