Another Top 10 for Rhys (because I can...and want to)
And as a way to apologize for all the tears spilled after my Top 10 times my heart broke for Rhysand post
#1 Prof. Rhysand at his best
“Look … ” “Good,” he murmured. “I didn’t ask for your approval.” Rhys chuckled. “Ab … Absolutely.” It took me longer than I wanted to admit to figure that out. The next word was even worse. “De … Del … ” I deigned to glance at him, brows raised. “Delicious,” he purred. My brows now knotted. I read the next two words, then whipped my face toward him. “You look absolutely delicious today, Feyre?! That’s what you wrote?”
several sentences I was to write every day, swapping out words, each one more obnoxious than the last: Rhysand is the most handsome High Lord. Rhysand is the most delightful High Lord.Rhysand is the most cunning High Lord.
Rhysand is interesting; Rhysand is gorgeous; Rhysand is flawless.
Rhysand is a spectacular person. Rhysand is the center of my world. Rhysand is the best lover a female can ever dream of.
#2 King of Proposals
My mother gave it to the Weaver. And then she told me that if I were to marry or mate, then the female would either have to be smart or strong enough to get it back. And if the female wasn’t either of those things, then she wouldn’t survive the marriage. I promised my mother that any potential bride or mate would have the test … And so it sat there for centuries.” “So I won my wedding ring without even being asked if I wanted to marry you.” “Perhaps.”
#3 For someone who keeps asking for some gratitude
* “You’re a bastard. You made it clear enough that I had … reservations.” “Such gratitude, as always.” I struggled to get down a single, deep breath. “What do you want from me?” “Want? I want you to say thank you, first of all.“
* “Make it go away,” I said, and he laughed. “You humans are truly grateful creatures, aren’t you?”
* “Get out.” “As usual, your gratitude is overwhelming.”
he surely has no idea how to receive it
“Thank you. For everything—for what you did. Then … and now.” “Even after the Weaver? After this morning with my trap for the Attor?” My nostrils flared. “You ruin everything.”
#4 A 500+ years old with a bedtime
“We’ll move things around. It’s fine. This one,” I added with a glare in Rhys’s direction, “is only cranky because he’s old and it’s past his bedtime.”
#5 Mature, serious and responsible ruler
At least you make up for your shameless flirting by being one hell of a High Lord.
He’d returned that evening, smirking like a cat, and had merely said “One hell of a High Lord?” by way of greeting.
#6 No introduction needed for this one
“As wonderful as it is to see you, Feyre, darling,” Rhysand said, sprawled on the bed, his head propped up by a hand, “do I want to know why you’re digging through my fireplace?”
#7 Champion of insults
“You can leave if you’re just going to insult me.” “But I’m so good at it.” He flashed one of his grins.
#8 It certainly was the type of flattery that won Rhys’ heart
"You’re a disgusting bastard.” “I’ll have to ask Tamlin is this kind of flattery won his heart.”
#9 A true gentleman
Rhysand examined the wound, a smile appearing on his sensuous lips. “Oh, that’s wonderfully gruesome.” I swore at him, and he chuckled. “Such words from a lady.” “Get out,” I wheezed.
#10 ‘He gestured to his perfect face’ - even when Feyre 'hated him’ there was no denying it
“Why did Amarantha target you?” I dared ask. “Why make you her whore?” “Beyond the obvious?” He gestured to his perfect face.
