okay fam sorry but I have to make this post. a few things are bothering me so…. yeah.
I am getting so sick of people acting like the tog fandom hates or ignores Dorian. just because someone doesn’t ship him with Aelin… does not mean they hate him. I do not understand that logic. I, myself, shipped Dorian and Celaena in the first two books so honestly I have nothing against Doraelin.
I think I speak for the entire fandom when I say I LOVE DORIAN and want nothing but happiness for my
Crown Prince King. so please stop acting like you’re the only one who likes Dorian. I actually don’t think there’s a single person who DOESN’T like Dorian.
secondly, hate Rowan all you want. that’s fine. not gonna fight you on that because you are entitled to your own opinion. but lately the Rowan hate hasn’t even really been about him… it’s been about the people who ship him. (which is pathetic, I’m sorry. you’re going to judge me as a human being just because I like a different ship than you? you do not know me. so bye.) or Aelin. OR EVEN SJM???
maybe it’s just me but I do not understand why anyone would continue to read a series if they obviously hate the main character. or really hate every single character except one. yeah, Dorian and Rowan and everyone else are main characters but this series is about AELIN and her journey. so if you don’t like her… and you wanna hate on her… why are you even in this fandom?
IF YOU TALK SHIT ABOUT SJM JUST GET OUT.
just because you aren’t getting your way ship-wise does not give you any right to start bashing on the main character or the author for making the decisions they make. these are SJM’s books… she will write them how she wants and have Aelin end up with who she feels is best because they are HER BOOKS.
whether Aelin ends up with Rowan, Dorian, Mort, or no one at all… I will support whatever decision Sarah makes. this series is not defined by the ships. I care so much more about Aelin and her journey than who she ends up with.
call me and my friends mean girls all you want but I never bash anyone for their opinion. and I definitely don’t tag my posts in a lowkey attempt to start shit. I’m not interested in being part of any ship or clique wars. I am sick and tired of them. you have your opinions. and I have mine. let’s leave it at that.
I’m sure this will turn into “ooooh another Rowan stan trying to start a fight blah blah blah” (because this is the general reaction to any post by a Rowaelin shipper) but no…. no it really isn’t. it’s not about ships, it’s not even about the characters at this point. it’s about the fandom.
I am a part of this fandom because these books mean so much to me. because I wanted friends to talk to about these characters and books and feels. I got so much more than that though… I gained so many amazing friends to talk to about anything and everything. and I will forever be glad I joined this fandom for that reason.
this fandom has not only been kind since day one but is also talented, and brilliant, and come up with the best theories and pieces of writing or art, etc. that is why I’m part of this fandom. that is why I’m even on this website. to share and see things like that with people who love the books as much as I do.
so, if all you want to do is hate on the characters, THE AUTHOR, or the fans…. kindly exit the fandom. your negativity is not wanted here.
