I think we’re pretty sure as a fandom that Mor took Nesta and Elain to the cabin when they escaped from Hybern.
But can we talk about what they’d see when they got there? After the shock begins to wear off. After Elain’s sobs turn to sniffles and Nesta unwraps her arms from her sister’s shoulders?
When they both look up and gasp, staring in silence as FEYRE surrounds them? Her artwork everywhere. From the changing seasons around the doorframe to the Illyrian wings on the mantle. To the unfamiliar eyes painted above the doorway.
I like to think that this will bring them some measure of comfort, as well as light a fire to help get their sister back.
So….here are my totally non-canonical interpretations of the characters from the wonderful book “Every Heart a Doorway.”
Tor released a free download of the book and I had not the slightest inkling of what it was about. I really enjoyed it( That may be a mild understatement. It was one of those books that leave you satisfied and then the plot and it’s characters haunt you and you’re slowly forced to realize it had a lot more impact than you originally gave it credit for and you go and reread it and look for all the hidden clues and hunger for more). All that being said, I really enjoyed the characters. McGuire describes them in such a way that their personalities really instruct their appearance. I couldn’t help but sketch out my visions of them. I highly recommend reading this book and I’m excited to read Seanan Mcguire’s other books!
So Mod Spike started reading “Every Heart a Doorway” by Seanan McGuire….. The main character, Nancy, says this in the second chapter of the book. She’s a romantic ace (she says she experiences romantic attraction a little further down the page), and I believe sex-neutral.
There’s also a trans man character, Kade, in the book as well. And the book makes it very clear Kade is a trans man. Happens in the same chapter as the above.
I will let everyone know how this turns out, and if there’s other LGBT+ characters in the book.
