Perfectly Aligned

A/N: Elriel POV for ACOWAR, ACOFAS, and beyond. Where Elain explores her powers, both as a seer and the affinity Az’s shadows have for her.

There are canonical scenes included in this fic where much of the dialogue and the general plot of those scenes belong to Sarah J. Maas.

“I have been a little off balance since the day I met you. This is because I had never known what it is like to be perfectly aligned.”

And here they all are!  The completed trilogy + the novelette.  These were so much fun to do and I’m thrilled with how they all turned out!  If you’re interested at all in how I went about defacing these books, follow the links below to view the timelapsed process for each book.  I’ve been absolutely blown away by the wonderful feedback I’ve received after defacing each book, it has absolutely warmed my heart, so thank you!!  As always, if you have any questions regarding materials or methods I use for defacing, feel free to shoot me a message.  And if you’re at all interested in me making a companion video to go with the timelapses in order to give a more detailed explanation as to how I did these covers, then let me know!!
