iron flowers

bts as pleasing things
  • Jin: a new perfume, the perfect pen stroke, a freshly-ironed shirt, pressed flowers
  • Yoongi: chillstep soundcloud music, a blanket that just came out of the dryer, dark stormy nights
  • Namjoon: a fresh book (or an old book both are nice), rough wool sweaters, old journals
  • Hoseok: old architecture, blurred crowds, amusement parks at night, a warm cup of tea
  • Jimin: small animals, jackets with patches, large fields, the smell of the ocean, butterflies
  • Taehyung: watching fireworks on the pier, warm cotton candy, small, colorful houses, new coffee shop
  • Jungkook: fuzzy blankets, the scent of a rainy morning, neon signs, soft jazz, waves crashing onto your legs
Your eyes never betray by sign
What grief or joy they hold,
They are cold jewels that combine
Strong iron and rare gold.
— 

Charles Baudelaire, Flowers of Evil - Le Serpent qui danse

Translated by Jacques LeClercq

Mother, he touches me as if I am
the silver over which he rules.

Mother, he stares at me as if I am
more fearsome than all the creatures
in his kingdom.

Mother, he worships me as if I am the
only goddess he knows.

Mother, he holds me as if I am fragile
but kisses me as if I am stronger than
Atlas himself.

Mother, his eyes are precious stones
I fear they’re worth more than all my
flowers Above.

Mother, his rare smile shines brighter
than Apollo’s sun.

Mother, he tells me I am a queen and
places a crown of flowers and iron and
bones upon my head.

Mother, his laughter is water and I am
the thirstiest I have ever been.

Mother, his touch is golden and I am
rich.

Mother, his anger shakes our kingdom
whole and thrills my very bones.

Mother, he tells me rage is natural and
takes me to his Fields of Punishment to
scream it away.

Mother, he’s shown me even the dead
can bleed and given me control of
justice.

Mother, he’s watched me rip limbs from
the dead and kissed the blood from my
fingers and still found me beautiful.

Mother, his skin is ice and I am melting it.

Mother, he is a maze and I have lost
myself in him.

EoS Witch Prophecy Theory:

I could be wrong. It’s just a theory and at any point, please correct me if anything I’ve said is wrong. I had an epithany last night and figured it might be of some significance. Here goes ,line by line mostly :

“Blood to blood and soul to soul,                                                                           Together this was done and only together can it be undone.                                        Be the bridge, be the light.                                                                                     When iron melts, when flowers spring from fields of blood,                                   Let the land be witness and return home.”

The first line is fairly certain and Aelin confirms it- Manon’s parents were trying to break the curse by birthing her. From this, we learn Manon is of great significance to the witches. This we already know from her heritage- Ironteeth and Crochan. So the undoing of the curse is already set in motion and has been for the past 116 years since Manon’s birth.

This second line is interesting. Presumably Rhiannon was talking about the war which she refers to as “this”. If she was, she was talking about how the war was declared as a result of both Ironteeth and Crochan doing. So both types of witches are at fault.  Only together can this be undone? Crochan and Ironteeth working together. EoS leaves us with Manon going to unite the Crochans for a war against the darkness, Erawan, where the Ironteeth are ,who will probably join Manon.

I don’t know about the third line. Presumably this is in reference to the war against the darkness? Erawan vs Aelin. “Be the light” could mean Ironteeth and Crochan working together to help Aelin. This would make sense as Manon is currently fighting for Aelin and is gathering a witch army to fight against him.The line also sounds like its talking to someone- again Manon? “Be the bridge”. Perhaps between Ironteeth or Crochan or maybe delving deeper to between Fae and Valg.

Now this line is the most intriguing by far. Lets talk about the second bit first. As Manon has said nothing grows on the field where the first “civil war” of the witches was fought as a result of the bloodshed. Perhaps this line talks about how the blood spilt by the witches in unity will bring them home. Now for the first part, “when iron melts”. This was discussed in a. theory posted by @propshophannah originally I believe.If not I’m sorry and will change that. As we know Manon is half Crochan half Ironteeth. Perhaps in order to win the war she willl have to somehow sacrifice her Ironteeth and claws. Or maybe, “melt” means Aelin has something to do with it? Im not sure. If anyone wants to discuss this, feel free.

The last line is pretty self-explanatory. Return home to the wastes. “Let the land be witness” could also mean that a battle will be fought there but I think there is a deeper, darker meaning behind this. Maybe its where the Lock will be forged? I don’t know.

If anyone wants to talk about this, just send a message.
