I understand your concern, the author is a big problem here. There was a reason that he didn’t give her more development though and thats because she is just a supporting character, a character in Sandor’s story. I don’t have anything specifically wrong with the ship itself aside from the fact that it’s one of the major ships in our fandom which I think is ridiculous considering A. Even Sandor isn’t a main character, let alone Devektra, and B. Devektra is dead as is Sandor, and there was very little insight into who they are as characters, especially for Devektra. She had so little development and such a fundamental character sketch and yet our fandom has blown her up with headcanons and fancasting Taylor Swift as her as a way to try to compensate for the fact that she just wasn’t important. You mentioned her “deep side” in chapter 9 (I assume you mean chapter 10). Her “deep side” wasn’t that deep. There was no character depth to back it up, no traits to show reason or display her thought process. It just felt like more of the “manic pixie dream girl” stuff to be honest. She had no character traits and no personality. There is a writing test, the “Sexy Lamp” test to be specific. It says that if you could replace a character with a sexy lamp, the character is unnecessary. Devektra could have flawlessly been replaced with a lamp, maybe with a little disco ball ornament hanging from it to top it off. That’s partially the fault of our writer, it is his fault for making her a lamp, but it should also be taken into account the fact that she is just a background character, a background lamp.
I am a huge fan of the Lorien Legacies series, though I didn’t like the movie and I’m not a fan of our author either. I made a side-blog to devote entirely to the series, but when I started scrolling through the tag I found incessant movie posts, fancasts, posts devoted to Devektra, and talk about Sandor, Crayton, Devektra, and Lexa. Sandor has some nice depth, as does Lexa. Do you know who else does? Zophie. I think I saw maybe one post mentioning Zophie, and I have no clue as to why. The post I made, which was a collaborative effort with a friend of mine who feels the same way about Devektra and about our fandom, was simply something I figured needed to be said. Offense was not intended, but was unfortunately inevitable.
