How Feyre’s Character Development Is Shown In The Covers Throughout The Series

I love how simply the covers of the ACOTAR series shows Feyre’s character development throughout the series. It’s mind blowing to be honest. 

You can see in ACOTAR how Feyre is standing straight. Although it could be said she’s standing upright for confidence during the last part of the novel, we know her stance could also show her complacence throughout the novel. Especially after reading the books and from the events that happens within ACOTAR. Her stance also looks stiff to an extent, showing how she is still submissive or under someone’s command. Furthermore, there is only half of her on the cover as if she’s trying to hide herself. The red in the background also indicate either her anger, loss, and/or death prior to reading the novel. The roses, obviously, fits with the title of Thorns and Roses but can also foreshadow Feyre and Tamlin’s relationship in the novel being like a rose: seemingly beautiful and sweet but, in honesty, is also harmful like the thorns of a rose. Her dress is also more conservative (?) (if you compare it to the other two in ACOMAF and ACOWAR) yet provocative (?). It covers most of her stomach and legs, showing how she was still insecure about herself and the only reasons she willingly used an outfit with a front that low is because she was either told to (although I have absolutely no judgement if she wore that willingly, she would work it just fine tbh haha). You could say her outfit is elegant (since it’s from Rhysand ofc) yet it gives off the vibe that she was made to wear it - something she is not use to given her awkward stance.

In a ACOMAF you could see how she is standing more fluidly on the side of the book. She is no longer stiff but looks more comfortable with her body. Her pose exerts confidence and strength, especially with her hand and the way it’s positioned above the wind as if she’s controlling it (which she probably is in some way if you think of Rhysand being the wind since he can fly etc., etc.). More of her is now shown on the cover as if she’s having the courage to step out of the book and show herself on the cover for what she is. Feyre’s hair blowing the way it is can show that she is in movement and could be fighting unlike her previous state in the Spring Court. Her outfit has also upgraded into more of an armour, showing that she is stronger now and fighting for herself compared to the beginning of ACOTAR when she was at the Spring Court. Furthermore, the armour could also indicate that she is working with someone else since we know from ACOTAR that the Spring Court does not have armours of the sort for females but only dresses (egh). The cover, once more, also fits with the title in accordance to the Mist and Fury part: misting is a skill Rhysand has (somewhat a foreshadow that Feyre’s mate might be Rhysand) and fury could indicate either Rhysand’s fury at the events that occurred Under the Mountain or Feyre’s fury at Tamlin showing his true self. Her tattoo on her left arm from Rhysand is also much more visible than her tattoo in the ACOTAR cover, as if she’s no longer trying to hide it like before but showing it off. The color blue is also known as reliable, calm, creative, intelligent, and maybe responsible (from a Google search I did). This foreshadows (EVEN MORE) about Feyre’s personality as we know she stopped painting for a given amount of time before starting again in the Night Court. The blue also indicates calm, intelligence, reliability and responsibility, all of the things Rhysand and Feyre are. Especially the reliability part foreshadows Feyre and Rhysand’s relationship as we know that she trusts him even though she denied it at first. The small city silhouette in the background can also show that she is in Velaris instead of the Spring Court where she only knows Tamlin’s home (palace?). 

NOW IN ACOWAR. LET ME JUST TALK ABOUT THE OUTFIT FIRST. Previously Feyre was wearing armour, as if she was an accomplice of Rhysand’s Inner Circle, working with them to take out Tamlin and Hybern. NOW, NOW IT’S A FUCKING DRESS THAT SHOWS SHE’S A HIGH LADY BUT STILL STRONG AND FIGHTING FOR HERSELF. The design (by the lovely @charliebowater ) practically exudes confidence, strength, and her ability to see what is wrong and right (especially with the eyes on her belt but that could also foreshadow Jurian since his eyeball was Amarantha’s ring). The glistening of the bottom of her dress could also represent starlight, connecting back to the Night Court and Starfall possibly. The position of her arms and the way she’s now showing off both hands and the tattoo shamelessly indicates her confidence with being a part of the Night Court and Rhysand’s Inner Circle. The way her hands are resting on her hips further proves my point of her growing confidence as she stands as if she’s ready to face anything. Also, her full body is now on the cover unlike in ACOTAR when only half of her was showing. This can be seen as her way of finally discovering and accepting her strengths and, once more, exuding confidence. She’s also holding an Illyrian blade, far different than before when she was only showing her hands in the ACOMAF cover. This shows how her abilities have furthered and that she could fight now, with a blade (cause we know her speciality is actually a bow) and with her powers (which is explained in the next sentence). The mist around her could show how her strengths in misting may be improving in the novel compared to when she was still first training with Rhysand and, maybe, her fire powers also since we can interpret this as smoke too. We already know she can control her water powers very well. The color green, after a Google search, portrays balance, harmony, nature but also envy. The balance and harmony of the green could be a foreshadowing of the ending of ACOWAR and how, possibly (hopefully, dear lord hopefully), the ending might be peace amongst Prythian once more. The nature part of the green could indicate the Spring Court and her return. However, the envy part of green, what I really think, is referred to Tamlin and his envy. I feel like he will end up finding out about Feyre being mated with Rhysand and he will be even more envious (pray to the Mother that Tamlin doesn’t do anything stupid like he already did). HER HAIR, again it’s blowing showing that everything around her might be in motion and she’s ready to take them down like she promised. The background also has mountains if you look close enough. This may be a foreshadow that Feyre and the Inner Circle may have to return to Under the Mountain once more to fix Prythian (this is making me extremely nervous). Finally, the title. Lord, Mother, I love Cassian so much please don’t let him die. The cover fits with the title of A Court of Wings and Ruin once more although not entirely: the wings part may be a foreshadowing (I’m sorry I repeat this stylistic feature so much) to, sadly, Cassian’s wings (although I still refuse, to believe it). The “ruins” part may be referring to how everything is falling apart just like the ending of the last book but, this time, it might be the actual ruin of the Spring Court and Hybern. Maybe even Under the Mountain since there are mountain silhouettes in the background. 

Well, that’s my interpretation of the covers. I felt the need to do this the moment the ACOWAR cover came out. I noticed her stance change and the way she brings herself. I couldn’t resist myself.

She bared herself in one smooth, unhurried motion, as if she were back in her own chambers disrobing for her bath with no one but her bedmaids looking on. When the cold wind touched her skin, she shivered violently. It took all her strength of will not to try and hide herself with her hands, as her grandfather’s whore had done. Her fingers tightened into fists, her nails digging into her palms. They were looking at her, all the hungry eyes. But what were they seeing? I am beautiful, she reminded herself. How many times had Jaime told her that? Even Robert had given her that much, when he came to her bed in his cups to pay her drunken homage with his cock.

They looked at Ned Stark the same way, though.

Essays in Existentialism: Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s day coming up, how about a themed Clarke and Lexa story?

The hospital swirled with the quiet steady of patients and doctors, all taking their time getting anywhere at all. Nurses stations filled with deliveries of bouquets and cards and chocolates, while the halls were littered with cardboard hearts and babies with little wings and bows. Reds and pinks of every shade and color turned the fifth floor into a haven of sappiness and commercial love.

okay okay okay, usually i keep this blog strictly solangelo but i gotta say something. in aus & headcanons & all that cool stuff it’s all good & fine to make everybody in the pjo series bffs. but i want us to remember it is not canon. percy & jason are very alike & are more often than not a little at odds. frank? didn’t really get close to anyone beides hazel. leo? could’ve had amazing characterization, but is mostly use as comic relief. nico makes leo uncomfortable. annabeth is hard to talk to & is stuck up & comes across as naturally rude. hazel is usually the one that is actually how the fandom makes her out to be, a little sweet nugget. piper made the most progress i would say, with working on not hiding herself & tried to actually be apart of the moment. percy is intimidating , he is not some marshmallow who’s fun & easy to talk to. jason is a natural leader & while sometimes he’s a mom he’s also gonna be direct & not beat around the bush. let’s remember that each character is different & they don’t all mesh. because isn’t that what makes the stories so interesting? to see how they all work together even though they’re not so alike?

Question: How exactly did Cranberry die again? It seemed like Tama just scratched her, and KABLAM!

Well it was kind of a shock when I read the light Novel because I never thought that Tama’s magical power was fit for fighting but hell is it!.

Tama’s magical power is to literally create a hole on any surface by scratching on them. She only uses this power in the light novel / the anime to run away and hide herself so the author totally tricks you into thinking that she’s powerless in battle but damn how wrong we were about her, she is the one who kills the strongest magical girl after all.

🚨 Trigger warning for anime blood and dismembered body 🚨

HOLY CRAP.

So basically Tama used her magical ability on Clanberry by scratching her back resulting in creating a hole in her body that made her blow up.

METAL AS FUCK I KNOW.

Tama remains queen.

Five Times Marinette Failed to Hide and the One Time She Succeeded

Summary: Marinette has never been great at hiding, be it herself or her secrets.

AO3 / Ch 1, 2

Chapter Two - Guilty


On the day of her eleventh birthday, Marinette found herself hiding under her bed, legs sticking out. She knew that, even though it was her birthday, it wouldn’t stop her maman and papa from yelling when they found out what she did. Even if it was on accident.

She sighed, her cheek pressing against the wood of the floor as her legs lifted and lightly kicked it. Her hands instinctively held onto her elbows, which had ended up scraped and bleeding by her accident. She winced, remembering the giant crashing sound that had accompanied her tripping up the stairs. Not only had she smeared the walls and steps with cupcake batter and frosting, but she’d gotten it all over herself and managed to track it through the house when she bolted from the scene of the crime.

Her vision blurred, and she felt tears prick the corners of her eyes. Sniffling, she tried her best not to let the pain and embarrassment (and possible punishment) move her to outright sobbing.

Of course, she knew there wasn’t anything wrong with crying- papa told her that it’s like letting go of emotions when she has too many to hold in. Still, she didn’t think she deserved to cry over something that was her fault. Taking a stuttering breath, she squeezed her eyes shut and increased the kicking of her legs.

It wasn’t long after that that she heard the familiar creak of her trapdoor opening, and she felt herself go stiff. She not-so-subtly shifted further from the noise, unaware that her legs still stuck out.

I know it’s human nature that the closer we get to one-another – the more of me you want to see… But sometimes it feels like the more of myself I show you, the less of me you’re really seeing.
It’s like a riddle with no answer, a never ending problem, a perpetual cycle from which there is no escape.
Don’t you know that my body isn’t who I am…?
It’s like you’re racing to get to a finish line but you’re going the wrong way. Who I am is in the conversations we have and the quiet little pauses between them. There are traces of her in the little things I do for you and she dances whenever I laugh.
She hides herself a lot… but secretly I think she wants to be found. If you want to see her you have to look for her but she’s not beneath my clothing – that’s not who I am, and the more you look there the more she will hide herself from you.
Who I am takes time. Who I am takes a building of trust and the knowledge that this is all not just a prelude to something purely physical… because none of that interests me, that’s common and I can get that anywhere… But a real connection with someone who actually sees ‘me’… that’s the rarest thing on earth…
“You’re a store clerk and oh shit I just spotted my ex please let me hide behind your desk-thing” AU

I saw this prompt earlier and I HAD to do it for Zutara!


The thing about hearing your name being called out is that it’s almost automatic to look around, even if - like Katara - you knew the voice calling it and didn’t want to. The thing about having a name like Katara’s was that ignoring it wasn’t much of an option, either - how many other Kataras were likely to be walking around? The shock of dark brown hair heading her way was, even from this distance, unmistakeable.

Crap,” she hissed, jerking her head back around and quickening her pace, even as she knew it would do no good - Jet was on the track team. This isn’t hiding, she thought to herself as she slipped into the nearest store, some tiny teashop. This is a tactical retreat.

The empty shop was small and quaint and - most importantly - completely devoid of places to hide: it was all tiny tables and squashy chairs. The only possible place was the desk at the back where the cash register was, and she hurried across to it, ducking under the door flap to find, to her dismay, a mess of cardboard boxes on the floor behind the desk. It seemed there was only room for one person to stand, so, grimacing, she started clearing the boxes away when she heard someone clear his throat.

“Is this… a robbery?” asked the guy looking at her, who must have just emerged from a door she hadn’t noticed before - a store room, probably. “Because if it is, it’s a really bad one. I could hear you all the way from the back.”

Five Times Marinette Failed to Hide and the One Time She Succeeded

Summary: Marinette has never been great at hiding, be it herself or her secrets.

AO3 / Ch 1, 2

Chapter One - Hide and Seek


When Marinette was six years old, her papa covered his eyes and started to count. Tiny though she was, she was also very quick, and she was almost out of the room before he got to ‘three.’ She glanced back at him quickly, and saw him peeking.

With a huff, she stomped her foot and balled her fists. “No fair, Papa! You always tell me no peeking!” A tiny scowl adorned her face.

“Aw, can’t I have just a peek?” he asked her, a smile on his face.

“No! You never give me any peeks!” she exclaimed, shaking her head quickly, which sent her pigtails flying.

Tom guffawed at the sight, and he reached down to tussle her hair a bit. She couldn’t keep the scowl on her face at that, and instead giggled brightly. “Alright, you got me, I’ll play fair. Now, go hide,” he told her, nudging her a bit before turning around and making a large show of covering his face.

“No peeking?” she asked.

“Nope, promise.”

Let’s talk about my favorite topic : it’s not only alex’s coming out to the superfriends. it’s also maggie being introduced to her gf’s friends and that’s everything. so she hides. she’s so smol behind alex. she hides herself not because she’s ashamed but because she’s scared. alex doesn’t know that though. she couldn’t tell her so she kinda suck it up to the point where she was actually making herself seem confident but boy she wasn’t. “i don’t care about many people” well nobody really cared for her before. no dad were coming at her this time. no brother were gonna beat the shit out of her for being with their sister. space dad was actually supportive. aswas james. and winn. this is all new so she smiles, she stands behind, she enjoys alex being out, proud and not afraid even though she is. that scene is everything really. on one hand we have alex who is showing off her badass gf cop and on the other hand we have maggie who clearly isn’t used to this, not used to being introduced, not used to being cared for enough. she knows it’s a big and important moment for alex but for her ? it’s on another whole new level that alex can’t quite get, not yet.

Aelin Ashryver Galathynius

I really don’t understand it when people say they hate Aelin because she’s far too into herself.

You guys realize that 95% of it is self deprecating humor and a defense mechanism, right?

Like yeah, she knows she’s pretty. But what’s wrong with acknowledging that? It’s just another weapon. She knows she’s powerful, but I think after ten years of denying and running from that power, she has the right to acknowledge it.

The rest is a joke. She’s JOKING. If she were that into herself, she would be running and hiding instead of giving herself over to Maeve and death.

Out of everyone in the Overwatch team, Hana would be the one to see their relationship for what it is. She doesn’t need to see the physical side or hear the affectionate word. She would just know how much Mako cares and loves Junkrat from even just them going on missions together.

The man is so ferociously protective of Junkrat in a way that’s way too much for just a bodyguard looking out for his boss.

Her suspicions are confirmed when Junkrat and her become friends and he starts bragging about Mako to her. She honestly believes the stories that he tells her about the two of them together and thinks that they’re really cute.

She starts coming around more often and she really starts noticing the little things that Mako does to show his affection even when he’s got the facade up. She knows all about saving face because she does it all the time. She tries really hard to hide herself from the general population, so she knows how Mako is.

She starts hanging out with the both of them a lot after that pretty much and she actually becomes really good friends with Mako too to the point where when they go on missions together he becomes super protective of her and makes sure to protect her if she needs it.

it’s the modern AU for my OCs. an alternate setting of here

i would explain more when i have more drawing of it lol but here’s a little summary of the start of this AU

- their family owned the first rank school. 

- the younger sister Erryl always admired her older brother Erell who is currently the president of their school student council. She always wish to as cool as her older brother.

- however, one day Erryl almost killed one of the boys who sexually abused and bullied her close friend. she ended up hiding herself in her house for days, as she decided to come out and confess her crime it turns out that her brother took all blame on himself and as the punishment he stepped down from student council, drop out from their elite school and was thrown out from their family

- Erryl became the new president. Erell lived on his own and attend the last rank school.

and that’s where the twins have separated stories and they met the 2 boys. (just like original story)


will tell more later. i’m so tired now :’D

was reading the ficlet with kagome's lipstick prints all over harry's face and i'm laughing at how they're looking for the loo together. just imagine them going into the girls' bathroom and the girls there being torn between amusement and exasperation bc what the HELL potter??? was the abandoned girl's bathroom not enough for you??

Give her all of you, in bits and pieces; that’s nutrition to her heart. Despite the thousands of girls you may have entertained before, love her in a thousand ways, and take her to places she will never be able to walk to. Make her feel every inch of your thoughts, so she loses control of her mind and body. Run your fingers through the hairs on her soul, just to understand how she might be feeling. Clean the gorgeous mess she created when she destroyed herself for hiding what was destroying her. Turn her pain to poetry and perform it to her fears so they can find faith in the future. Listen to the lyrics in her silence, for they confess what’s on her mind. Remove the illusion of time from your heart and understand that her love cannot be measured by a watch or calendar.
