i never forget how beautiful ryan is, but sometimes it just hits me again and it’s like BAM golden prince angel puppy with the hella sharp cheekbones and cute af freckles has entered the fucking building
You know what really gets me about Kings Rising though?
It’s how the first half of the book, you see that shift in Damen. Not just the ‘I am now the King’ shift but you see him so much more muted. and at one point you realize it’s because he’s sad. He’s mourning whatever he had with Laurent. THEN you have them do the bickering thing which is worse because now it FEELS like a break up. But then Laurent gets drunk and he says ‘I miss you’ and than suddenly it SHIFTS.
AND IT’S LIKE THE SKY OPENED UP AND BATHED THE EARTH IN PURE SUNSHINE. BECAUSE DAMEN WAKES UP SMILING. AND HIS HAPPY. AND ITS NOTICEABLE.
ALL BECAUSE OF 3 WORDS WHISPERED IN THE NIGHT FROM A DRUNK LOVER.
CAN YOU BELIEVE HOW DEEP THIS KID IS? CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT’S ALL IT TAKES FOR US TO GET HIM BACK?????
