I am really happy that Zoya’s character development didn’t follow a “taming of the shrew” type of storyline. She remains as hard-edged and caustic as ever, but she now allows herself to feel emotions that she repressed for SO LONG because of her trauma. She doesn’t have to change herself to be more appealing to those around her, she doesn’t have to “soften” just because she doesn’t fit a certain mold of how many people view a woman should be. However, her trauma over her abusive mother and complicit father, as well as her grief over her aunt, was eating her alive. She was so hard on herself about how she didn’t see how manipulative the Darkling was until it was too late, and he had killed the last people who she cared about. In the end, she remains as badass and unapologetically blunt as ever, but this time she allows herself to be vulnerable with those she cares about, and stops punishing herself

headcanons // zoyalai babies
hi, i just finished row, and all i want is some domestic zoyalai & some zoyalai bbs, so have some of my headcanons that i have to just to satisfy myself
i like to think that when zoyalai has kids (bc they totally will), they’ll only have girls. like, nik would be such a good girl dad imo???
nikolai & zoya have three daughters.
the oldest is named inessa liliyana
her middle name is after zoya’s aunt (obvs), and her first name, inessa, was a name nikolai had loved since he was a child & had always been set on naming his daughter
inessa is beautiful. like drop dead gorgeous. but what else would you you expect with such hot parents?!
she’s got zoya’s dark hair and her skin is a little darker than nikolai’s, but in all other aspects, she’s his doppelgänger
they call her “nessa” or “nessie for short
as she gets older, she hates being called nessie, so nikolai does it even more just to get on her nerves
she’s firey like zoya, and she has nikolai’s sense of humor, so she’s def a handful as a child
their second daughter is named eleonora alina
eleonora was a name they stumbled upon whilst searching for a name for inessa. it was zoya’s top choice for inessa, but ultimately, they decided against it. when eleonora was born, they knew that it was perfect
alina was honored when she found out that eleonora was named after her. she may have even shed a few tears upon being told
she looks just like zoya, except for her hazel eyes, which she got from nikolai.
nikolai calls her elly, and her sisters & zoya call her nora. she loves both of her nickname, and prefers being called either over being called eleonora.
she’s sweet and shy, but sarcastic when you get to know her. eleonora rarely gets angry, but when she does you’d better watch out
the youngest daughter is alyona genya
nikolai and zoya knew that if they had a third daughter, they would make her middle name genya. and genya even picked out alyona’s first name without even knowing it
zoya and genya came across it when the pair were looking for names, whilst zoya was pregnant, and genya pointed the name alyona out to zoya, who immediately fell in love with it
alyona is the only lantsov daughter with blonde hair. she has zoya’s brilliant blue eyes. everyone says she looks just like a blonde zoya, but both nikolai and zoya herself say she looks just like nikolai.
nikolai and zoya call her ona, while her sisters call her aly. she is indifferent to her nicknames and is fine with being called whatever
personality wise, she is almost just like nikolai. she was a tornado on wheels when she was a kid, but mellowed out a little as she got older, even though she was still a tad snarky
i just really love the idea of nik as a girl dad. i think nikolai having sons just feels weird and wrong. i might make a separate post about him as a dad/ him & zoya as parents, so look out for that!
these are just my personal headcanons that make me feel all warm in the inside, but if you have a q or two, feel free to ask & i will be sure to elaborate ;)

PLEASE tell us more about the grishaverse eurovision au!! i need to know.
so it’s mostly something that bestie @tovezza and I came up with while bored in quarantine, but here are some of the highlights:
- Mal and Alina’s entry is this ft. the Triumvirate as their backup singers with various levels of enthusiasm (Zoya wearing the most painfully scary fake smile known to man)
- Nikolai has a kind of Hannah Montana-esque situation going on where somehow instead of his stage name being listed as Sturmhond, Sturmhond was entered as an entirely separate competitor, and rather than try to sort this out Nikolai decides to milk the potential of the bit for as far as it will take him
- Sturmhond’s song is obviously this
- Nikolai is scheduled immediately after Sturmhond for peak comedic effect, which I imagine playing out as Nikolai running around to the other side of backstage mid-quick change before performing this with the most disheveled disaster bisexual energy imaginable
- this is the Darkling’s entry no I do not accept constructive criticism
- Zoya is this solely for “thunder and lightning, it’s getting exciting”, although because it’s Zoya the wind machine is also turned up to max power and probably blows a backup dancer off the stage
- personally I feel like if the Crows enter as a group, either of these songs captures that energy
- *Kuwei voice* “I think I should set the piano on fire for effect while Inej and Dunyasha fight on a high wire over the stage”
- in the event of separate entries though, I think the legendary energy of this song suitably matches Jesper
- Kaz is Soldi mostly for the deadpan clapping (he’s singing “kru-geh” with exactly the same intonation) and the “IT HURTS TO BE ALIVE” graphic
- the Druskelle entry is furry Abba knockoffs all dressed as wolves and nobody can tell if this is meant to be taken seriously
- Hanne’s entry is Spirit In the Sky

Can someone kill the Apparat already. Literally Zoya kill him. And then just tell everyone he died of disentry or something. That’s what everyone was dropping dead from anyway

Zoya knew Nikolai was following her to the garden and she let him even left the door open for him. She wanted him to be there with her during her weakest moment. She probably wanted his light during the darkest time. She told him about the thorns showed him the ugliest part of her but he without hesitation opposed her & told her how useful thorns are. She probably wanted him to comfort her, maybe she knew he would manage to be positive and keep her marching.
