Toplist Points 1329360 == Toplist Rank [unknown-WIP]

No spoilers, here’s everything that was talked about at the event last night!

When she had edited it completely, KoA was originally 1008 pages but the glue they use for binding couldn’t hold together a book more than 1000 pages long Bloomsbury reformatted it all to less than 1000 pages because Sarah didn’t feel like she could delete any of itShe knew what the end would be five years ago while on a trip in Costa Rica at the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Saw the landscape and the final sentence of the series came to her She ended up crying in front of all of her in-lawsLysandra’s return in Queen of Shadows was inspired by the song “Smack My Bitch Up” by The Prodigy. Not the title or the lyrics but the background music made Sarah think of Lysandra shifting into a snow leopard and she knew that she would be a shapeshifter She wanted to make Aelin see other girls as allies and friends and to surround herself with strong women and she realized Lysandra would be the perfect best friend The scene when Lysandra saved Rowan and Aedion in Queen of Shadows is one of Sarah’s favorites and was inspired by the song in E.T. when the kids are riding their bikes As soon as Lysandra was there, she couldn’t imagine the series without her and she’s one of Sarah’s favorite characters Every scene and character is inspired by music Aelin has a theme song: “Remember Us” from the 300 soundtrack Sarah listened to it when Chaol found out Celaena was Aelin, when the army arrives at the end of EoS, and throughout writing KoAAs she’s writing books, she makes playlists with songs for scenes and characters  Helps when she’s editing so she can re-listen to songs that inspired that scene/chapter to re-enter the headspaceWhen writing scenes without music, she worries that they will be ‘emotionally dead’ and it can be a really weird experience Rowan and Aedion are one of her favorite relationships—especially when they first meet and Aedion is geeking out. Then when Rowan gives Aedion the dagger at the end of QoS and it becomes his most prized possession Manon and Abraxos are also one of her favorite relationships because he brings out her ‘humanity’ and begins the change that leads to her character arc Abraxos was inspired by Ferdinand the bull and her aunt’s dog, Buddy, who was rescued from a fighting ring where he was used as a bait dog. He was abused, his teeth were all gone, and they abandoned him on the side of the highway before someone found him. Nevertheless, he was the kindest, sweetest, most trusting dog She replicated his story in AbraxosAelin and Rowan is her favorite pairing Their journey in Heir of Fire is really special for herIn Queen of Glass, Aelin and Rowan weren’t together because she was in a relationship with someone else but when Sarah wasn’t writing that, she would write fanfic smut where Aelin and Rowan were hooking up on the side When rewriting the series for publication, she realized that Rowaelin should be together, although Rowan should come in later in the series because she wanted Aelin to have the journey of going through first love [triangle] with Dorian and Chaol When writing Heir of Fire, she planted the seeds of their romance so when readers reread it, they could understand why he… bit her and stuff lol

Rape Escape   Easy and very effective  Requires nothing but your body  Includes attack

Rape Escape Easy and very effective Requires nothing but your body Includes attack

I DONT GET WHY PEOPLE KEEP SAYING NO ONE TRIED TO HELP NESTA.

Seriously?! Feyre has tried on NUMEROUS occasions, AMREN HAS TRIED, CASSIAN HAS TRIED, ELAIN HAS TRIED!!!! Who the hell else? Azriel and Mor? Rhysand? I think everyone is forgetting that THEY ALL HAVE THEIR OWN TRAUMA TOO. Nesta isn’t the only one with PTSD or DEPRESSION or shit to work through! Elain was ALSO thrown into that couldron. Rhys was under the mountain being raped for 50 years and his MOTHER AND SISTER WERE SLAUGHTERED. Mor was tortured and almost killed by her family. Azriel was locked in a dark dungeon for his entire childhood. FEYRE DIED. RHYS DIED. Cassian doesn’t even know where his own MOTHER WAS BURIED. Like come on, if you can’t see that then idk ya’ll are on some other wavelength. Also it’s only been maybe 1-2 years since Rhys stopped being raped under that mountain. Since Feyre died and her entire world changed.

Also- for everyone hating on Rhys because of his distaste for Nesta, SHE TREATS HIS FAMILY LIKE GARBAGE. Who would want someone around that not only treats/has always treated your MATE like shit but your ENTIRE FAMILY. Imagine having your mother and siser brutally murdered and then having to deal with Nesta who treats your chosen family like crap? Yeah, I certainly wouldn’t want her around my brothers and sisters acting like that. He mostly lets it slide because of Feyre.

This whole Nesta stan thing is killing me. It seems so one sided and narrow minded to forget that she is an adult and not a baby to be coddled. They’ve all seen and endured horrific things, they all have PTSD and need ways to escape. They all need to work together to get through it. She is not the only one in the ACOFAS universe that has been through horrific shit, so why does she get to be so awful but everyone else gets demonized if they say ONE thing about her?

Everything about this post is so spot on. Nesta’s PTSD does not excuse the fact that she has literally treated Feyre and everyone else like garbage SINCE BOOK ONE. She’s not a bitch because of her PTSD. She’s been a bitch the entire freaking time. Sorry not sorry. 🤷‍♀️

Just remember. There is no such thing as a fake geek girl. There are only fake geek boys. Science fiction was invented by a woman.

image

Specifically a teenage girl. You know, someone who would be a part of the demographic that some of these boys are violently rejecting.

Isaac Asimov.

yo mary shelley wrote frankenstein in 1818 and isaac asimov was born in 1920 so you kinda get my point

If you want to push it back even further Margaret Cavendish, the duchess of Newcastle (1623-1673) wrote The Blazing World in 1666, about a young woman who discovers a Utopian world that can only be accessed via the North Pole - oft credited as one of the first scifi novels

Women have always been at the forefront of literature, the first novel (what we would consider a novel in modern terms) was written by a woman (Lady Muraskai’s the Tale of Genji in the early 1000s) take your snide “Isaac Asimov” reblogs and stick it

even in terms of male scifi authors, asimov was predated by Jules Verne, HG Wells, George Orwell, you could have even cited Poe or Jonathan Swift has a case but Asimov?

PbbBFFTTBBBTBTTBBTBTTT so desperate to discredit the idea of Mary Shelly as the mother of modern science fiction you didn’t even do a frickin google search For Shame

And if you want to go back even further, the first named, identified author in history was Enheduanna of Akkad, a Sumerian high priestess.

Kinda funny, considering this Isaac Asimov quote on the subject:

Mary Shelley was the first to make use of a new finding of science which she advanced further to a logical extreme, and it is that which makes Frankenstein the first true science fiction story.

Even Isaac Asimov ain’t having none of your shit, not even posthumously.

You know what else was invented by women? Masked vigilantes, the precursor to the modern superhero. Baroness Emma Orczy wrote The Scarlet Pimpernel in 1905. The character would later inspire better known masked vigilantes such as Zorro and Batman.

Got that?

I have literally been telling people this for over a year.

the first extended prose piece - ie a novel, was not, as many male scholars will shout, Don Quixote (1605) but The Tale of Genji (1008) written by a woman

The first autobiography ever written in English is also attributed to a woman, The Book of Margery Kempe (1430s).

The day may come when I find this post and do not reblog it, but it is not this day.

I don’t want any sign of a Feysand baby in ACOFAS, or even in the new ACOTAR stories until around the last novel.

This fandom has a lot of young members, and they seem obsessed with Feyre popping out babies like breeding is the only way to show she loves Rhys, and that is a pathologically unhealthy outlook to have.

What did Feyre say to Rhys after their mating? That she didn’t want kids yet. She wanted to have adventures and just live for a while without the responsibility of having children.

Feyre is a 20 year old woman who spent most of her life in an insane scramble to survive- either poverty, starvation, the “blight”, Amarantha, Tamlin’s oppressive estate, and then the war with Hybern.

She’s never had a chance to really live and have friends (I mean, the IC are really the only friends we’ve ever seen her with). She’s never experienced a life that wasn’t overshadowed by a fight to just make it day-to-day and she’s never had room to be herself and be happy. 

Rhys is around mid-500s. He’s had adventures, it’s only fair that Feyre gets them too.

Yes, it’s funny imagining Babysitter-IC and there’s probably a lot of humor in a Feysand baby story, but I don’t want to see it until at least 3 novels in. I want Feyre off living life (even if it’s more in the background of other characters stories) and just really having a chance to be with Rhys before they settle in to have children.

Feyre isn’t someone to be bred. Let the girl have a life and stop trying to force children out of her sooner.

Again (because there was some confusion last time): This is about not wanting a Feysand baby in ACOFAS specifically. It is not anti-baby or anti-pregnancy in fanfic, fan art, or general posts. 

THIS !!!!! I SUPPORT !!!!!!
