“Lorcan followed Elide inside the tavern, some part of him admitting that for all his five hundred years of surviving and killing and serving, he’d never quite encountered someone so… unimpressed with him. Even gods-damned Aelin had some sense of the threat he posed. Maybe living with monsters had stripped away a healthy fear of them. He wondered how Elide hadn’t become one in the process.”
Empire of Storms, Sarah J. Maas
Probably one of the most underrated parts in EoS🙌🏼
(also Elide has A LOT of bde and is at the same time a total babe)
It’s an unnaturally hot day in Perranth, Elide notes. It’s certainly made no better by the sweaty jostling bodies of the early-morning markets crowd, filled with people from all walks of life hoping to nab the finer produce before the rest of the rush come in, only to realize too late that everyone else had the exact same idea.
Elide was starting to regret coming out here for the day. But she had no other choice! She hated it, the constant meetings full of sniveling, scheming nobility, who only wanted to adjust the playing field for their own personal gain, the unending flux of responsibilities that kept her cooped up inside for days on end made her relive certain memories she wanted to stay buried.
Remember when we thought Aelin was Celeana and she was just some badass assassin who just had a bad day and got thrown in prison but when she won the competition she’d just go on cool missions and that would be Throne of Glass HAHAHAHAHAHAHSHJDBCDSC same
