hc: Manon tells Dorian that she loves him for the first time (she's the first one to say it)

MARIA IM SO SORRY THIS TOOK ME SO LONG BB 

  • manon doesn’t usually tell anyone she loves them
  • not asterin
  • not any of the thirteen
  • certainly not her grandmother, who taught her cruelty all of her life
  • frankly she’s not even sure what love is 
  • or what it feels like
  • she can recognize lust 
  • oh, she knows that all too well
  • has been using it all her life to seduce–and then kill–those useless human males  
  • but that was years ago, in a different life
  • she’s changed
  • and her time with dorian has…made her vulnerable, in a way she’s never felt before 
  • it both terrifies her
  • and thrills her
  • whenever she sees him, her heart starts to ache
  • a sort of longing she’s never felt before
  • a need to be near him, to be close to him
  • to be with him, always
  • to protect him
  • she tries to push it away
  • every day she shoves it down, down until it’s only a whisper in her mind 
  • but then one day they’re in Rifthold 
  • and she happens upon him while he’s reading
  • and gods, he looks so peaceful
  • so happy 
  • for the first time, there’s not a whisper of sadness in those sapphire eyes 
  • and every feeling she’s shoved down, about dorian, about what she’s been feeling ever since she met him, comes crashing to the surface
  • she says the words without even realizing it
  • three simple words 
  • “I love you” 
  • dorian looks up from his book 
  • right into her golden eyes
  • not a single bit of confusion on his face 
  • as though…as though he’d already known
  • or suspected, at least
  • and just casually says 
  • “I love you too, Manon Blackbeak” 
  • and for the first time since the war, Manon smiles 

Manorian expectations for KoA

Not explicitly all Manorian interactions but in the vicinity of each other since they’re travelling together and I CANNOT EFFIN WAIT

  1. Sleeping arrangements!!!!!
  2. DEEP CONVERSATIONS and I’m talking Manon and only allowing Dorian to top her (yeah I went there!!) and her talking about the Thirteen and Abraxos and her feelings about the Matron, etc. Dorian talking about his father and the valg, and the possible sacrifice he needs to make
  3. JUST DEEP SHIZ
  4. But also those small little interactions between them and the touching because they’re so drawn to each other
  5. Asterin’s subtle and not so subtle teasing that gets Manon all fired up and Dorian basking in it
  6. Dorian’s interactions with the Thirteen!!!!
  7. Dorian and Abraxos
  8. Did I say sleeping arrangements already?
  9. COZ IT’S IMPORTANT LIKE ARE THEY SLEEPING NEXT TO EACH OTHER? WILL THEY SLEEP NEXT TO EACH OTHER? ARE THEY GONNA HAVE SEXY TIMES WITH EACH OTHER??
  10. Lots and lots of sexy times, preferably the affectionate kind
  11. But I’m all for the kink too (I’m looking at you Dory boyy!)
  12. Lots and lots of eye sex
  13. Lots and lots of caring sex and they don’t even notice it because they’re just so attuned with each other’s needs and feelings and it just comes naturally for them
  14. RIP ME
  15. HOLDING EACH OTHER AFTER SEXYTIMES like enough with the leaving each other alone I want them to hold each other and they both fall asleep and wake up together is this too much to ask?!!!
  16. Conversation or scene with them flying and Manon teasing him about it
  17. AN EMOTIONAL SCENE because we all know that they’re going to have to separate somehow with Manon finding the Crochans and Dorian off to do whatever he needs to do so they need to address this in an emotional parting way or a promise of seeing each other again
  18. “HELLO PRINCELING” “HELLO WITCHLING”
  19. Manon talks to Asterin about her feelings for Dorian and IT WILL BE A MOMENT
  20. OMG DORIAN AND ASTERIN INTERACTING CAN YOU IMAGINE UGH PLEASE
  21. THEY BOTH LIVE!!!!
  22. and it all ends with a marriage alliance but also because THEY ARE DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER FIGHT ME


Tagging @propshophannah because apparently she has the answers I seek and as a fellow Manorian trashbag, I hope I get to live long enough to have either a crying or happy jumping conversation with you (and anyone else who’s a manorian trashbag hit me up #ily)💔

Those moments when you read something that’s so fucking badass you need to stop reading and just take a moment to compose yourself because you’re shaken to the core

Me trying to wrap my head around the fact that some people read but don’t get emotionally attached to characters

REMEMBER

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

What I will never get over 

  • Sam Cortlands death 
  • Young Aelin/Celaena having no friends her age (besides Aedion) 
    • And when baby Aelin asks to be freinds with Baby Dorian, he rejecting her and saying he already has a friend and his name is Chaol 
  • Celaena being broken and yelling “She left me" 
  • Aedion crying in the stairwell after hearing of the death of everyone in Endovier and Callaculla 
  • Celaena singing at Nehemiah’s grave 
  • Dorian yelling for Sorscha after she is beheaded 
  • Chaol telling Dorian he loves him 
  • Chaol telling Celaena to get up
    • Young Aelin telling Celaena to get up 
  • Asterin’s story and how she lost her baby witchling  
  • Rowan yelling and having to be held back in order for him not to go after Aelin 
  • Aelin being locked in the coffin 
  • Aelin being whipped by Cairn 
  • Fenrys becoming blood sworn to Maeve and sleeping with her to protect his brother 
  • Sam yelling “I’ll kill you” because Arobynn beat Celaena in front of him

Captured by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin is trapped inside an iron box in a secret location, with seemingly no hope for escape. As she endures months of torture, her friends scatter to different fates. Without Aelin to protect them, soldier Aedion and shapeshifter Lysandra need to defend their homeland at all costs. Also left to forge their own paths in order to change history are Chaol, the witch Manon, and the golden boy Dorian-while Aelin’s mate, the fae male Rowan, searches the world over for his lost love.

As Aelin gathers the strength to save herself and fight the ultimate battle of her life, all of their destinies hang in the balance. Some ties will bond even tighter together, others will be severed forever, and mysteries will be revealed in this action-packed, heart wrenching series finale.
