doorways

Nesta and Elain are safe

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.

ALSO

“How did Cas even get the Colt out of the safe in the first place?”

“…”

“Dean, you put the Colt back in the safe right?”

“…”

“Dean?”

“It was under my pillow”

So. Questions.

1. How did Cas know to look under Dean’s pillow?”

2. At what point in that prior scene where Cas appears to have spent 3 seconds hovering in the doorway to Dean’s bedroom only could he have got the Colt from under Dean’s pillow? Hmm?

3. Why was Dean so shifty about it when admitting to Sam that was where Cas had taken it from?

Do you want me to answer these questions? Or shall I leave it up to your good selves to put two and two together just like Sam probably did hence Dean acting all shifty in the first place?

Here’s a hint:

Cas spent far longer in Dean’s bedroom than just the clip we were shown.

Cas spent considerable amounts of time in Dean’s bedroom in the general vicinity of his bed and pillow.

Cas was able to ‘distract’ Dean long enough to swipe the Colt away from underneath his pillow.

Hmmm… Do I really need to spell it out any further? :P

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! 

Expect much more fanart of this series.  

P.S it would mean everything to me if @seananmcguire saw this. 

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.
