#the court of nightmares

to expand on what i mean by “the spring court is allowed to be more shitty & flawed than the night court”, bc obviously the nc does have some bad spots, it’s like this:
rhy/sand doesn’t take ownership of the shitty parts of his court. he washes his hands of them. they’re just people he keeps in line via “pretending” to be evil, not his citizens. the court of dreams is the “true” face of the nc, apparently, as if the court of nightmares is not just as much a part of the nc, as if all of the problems in illyria aren’t “truly” the night court. to him the night court seems to mean velaris only, and everyone else are merely a bunch of violent barbarians he needs to keep in line. i mean, ffs, he doesn’t even seem RULE most of his court. MOR, per ac0maf as much as her agency IS taken away from her later, is the one in charge of administrating in the hewn city (and in velaris, and presumably much of the court). he straight up says her job responsibilities are similar to that of a queen! he pops in every now & then to be intimidating, but he doesn’t put in the WORK. yes he tries to interfere with illyria, but everything day to day is either managed by local lords (or whatever the title is) or possibly cassian sometimes. we know exactly ZILCH abt any other places in the nc.
they are not HIS people. he doesn’t work with them, he doesn’t seem to do much tangible ruling except when it comes to meeting other rulers, he quite frankly doesn’t seem to care abt anyone outside of velaris. he and the narrative have disowned them and when they say “the night court” they mean velaris and the ic, bc rhy/sand’s version of the night court isn’t allowed to be “bad” in the eyes of the narrative. meanwhile the spring court doesn’t get this kind of shit. it’s just the spring court and tam isn’t separated from all of it like rh/ys is from the nc.
#with tam no one ever said he didn't have a problem#in fact the narrative was QUITE CLEAR that he does#meanwhile in the night court everything that's ''rhysand's'' or related to the court of dreams is always considered good#ignore the way he's thrown every woman & faerie in hewn city under the bus. ignore the callous way he treats 1llyrian war veterans.#they're not REALLY the night court#they don't matter bc they're tools to be kept in line until needed for war to him#he & the court of dreams are detached from them#but the spring court is just the spring court and no one's trying to pretend tam was always secretly completely good#meanwhile the narrative acts like the court of dreams is the TRUE night court#and the court of nightmares simply a perversion#but that's not true. the hewn city IS the nc's historical legacy#ffs keir's family used to RULE the nc.#their attitude is what the nc was founded upon#but rh/ys would rather refuse to deal with them than reckon with that legacy & actually make progress#like at least tam has some basis for recognizing his country's fucked up history with the humans#it's not delivered on at all or very well writtenbut it's there and it's more than rh/ys has#anti sjm#anti acotar#anti rhysand#anti sjm: tamlin#anti inner circle#anti acomaf#anti acowar#like no it's just so irritating how rh/ys can be like ''we're improving the nc'' and then go#''no fuck everyone in these shitty places who still hold the same views the nc has historically held they're not the REAL nc''#and it's like then what part of the nc are you improving on? [crickets] EXACTLY IT'S NONE

WIP Return To the Court of Nightmares · all I can imagine Feyre saying here is "Yeah, about that deal Kier... " and Mor and Amren are just smug as hell about it. 💁 MY DREAM. Its so rough but I slapped colors on it so it was easier to read overall rather than just black and white. Also I have no idea about the background other than I was this to be a circular piece when its done 🙆. Ive only tried once before and failed epically so try, try again! But I mean heres a WIP since ive been major slacking the last few days. Forgive me. My brain is mush this last month before summer break.

He led me the few steps onto the dais—to the throne. He sat, smiling faintly at his monstrous court. He owned every inch of the throne. These people. And with a tug on my waist, he perched me on his lap.

WIP sketch~ I’ve started drawing this Court of Nightmares scene twice now, in different ways, and abandoned it each time. Third time’s a charm?

@faenet event: objects –> High Lady Feyre’s crown collection
Rhys had crowned me at each and every meeting and function we’d had, long before I was his mate, long before I was his High Lady. Even Under the Mountain.
Carved into the rock was an entire wall of crowns. They each had their own resting place, lined with black velvet, each illuminated by-
“Glowworms,“ Rhys told me
“Pick whichever crown you like.“
“I can’t just-take one.“
“You most certainly can. They belong to you.“

Re-reading All For The Game is such a journey. It just tears you apart in so many ways and I love it. So, renewed fanart! In the first pic is just a bunch of monsters. And the ending of The Raven King by Nora Sakavic makes me cry every time I read it. It just completely breaks my heart when Neil finally admits that he needs help and he needs other people. And that coach Wymack is there without a second of hesitation.
