Morning Doodle: I scowled. “How about I slice YOU open and see how your bones fit?”
Zoya fluffed her hair. “I bet they’re just as gorgeous as the rest of me.”

The fact that Leigh Bardugo was called a "fat cripple" behind her back in an ofensive tone by a famous author she knew, and had to listen to another one, Sarah J Maas, who was 30 at the time, talk about how sexually attracted she was to Mal, a literal minor in the grisha books, when she recently opened up about being abused and grommed as a child, just makes me wonder how many things authors have to go through with other writers that we don't know of.
Ps: the interview where sjm said this is in youtube, and I also made a post with it, so you can find it in my page if you want conffirmation

“When Alina saw Zoya, she smiled and raced down the steps with arms open. Zoya blinked away an embarrassing prickle of tears. She let herself be hugged.” -Leigh Bardugo, Rule of Wolves

People who ship Darklina: THEY COULDVE RULED THE WORLD TOGETHER
People who ship Malina: THEY ARE SOULMATES
That one person who ships Nikolai and Alina: Um hi wouldn’t it have been kinda cool if Alina had became a Queen?
People who ship Zoya and Alina: TWO QUEENS THAT DESERVE EACH OTHER
People who ship Alina with nobody: NONE OF THESE PEOPLE WILL EVER DESERVE OUR PRECIOUS BABY

Ok but we NEED to talk about this interview with Leigh Bardugo and SJM. The interviewer asks what character is their favourite from each other's series, and Sarah answers Mal is her favourite in shadow and bone because "he is so hot" and "makes her sweaty".
Now, Mal is between the ages of 17 and 18 in the trilogy, just like Alina. This interview was 5 years ago, and Sarah was 30. So, basically this is a 30 year old grown woman talking about feeling attracted to a character while he is literally a teenager in the books. This, when most of her work is targeted as YA and sold for actual teens.
What makes it even worse is that Leigh opened up about being a victim of SA as a child not long ago. She's there having to listen to an adult YA writer go off about how she feels sexually attracted to her teen character.
She laughs but she seems to be unconfortable, then follows with a "isn't she classy" in a tone that doesn't actually suggested it being the case.
Don't come at me with "he is just a character" or "he doesn't exist" thing. Yeah, is obvious Mal doesn't exist, but the point is that she still imagines him as a teen in her head and feels attracted to that image. Leigh writed Mal and Alina as teenagers/kids because that's what they were. If that was a man in his 30s saying he though 17-18 Alina was "super hot" and talking about him sweating thinking about her, I bet there would be a lot more people talking about it. I'm just not ok with an author who writes for teens talking about feeling something for one, even if he is fictional, because the idea she has on her mind of him and is drawn to is still of a child.
I'm not trying to cancel her or anything, but I don't want to hear people asking why Leigh stopped being friends with Sarah after a while. And this is not the first time that someothing of this nature happened. There was also the whole soap thing, that they tried to brush under the rugs, together with the fact that her books should have been always targeted as adult and not YA considering their content, even her ex best friend Susan Dennard talked about this (which I want so say preach since not every author talks about those things). I'm also tired of seeing adults talking about having attraction towards teenagers and everybody pretending like is normal, when it truly isn't, in any type of context.
