Lauren is theorising again. Duck for cover people this will not end well. But I was having some Thoughts about the mystery sixth queen. I think the biggest theory for this so far is that she’s Feyre’s mother and I just…Can’t quite get on board with that, there’s something about it that bothers me. SO. Here is an alternative:
‘I said, “Where is Father?” It felt like the only safe thing to
say. “In Neva,” Nesta
said, naming one of the largest cities on the continent. “Trading with some
merchants from the other half of the world. And attending a summit about the
threat above the wall. A threat I wonder if you’ve come back to warn us about.”
This is what Nesta says about her father’s absence when Feyre returns to her sisters in ACOMAF. But later on Feyre says this:
“My father is away on business—and attending a meeting in Neva
about the threat of Prythian.” “Prythian?”
Cassian said, twisting toward us. “Not Hybern?” “It’s possible my
sisters were mistaken—your lands are foreign to them. They merely said ‘above
the wall.’ I assumed they thought it was Prythian.”
“Where is the sixth?”
The ancient queen,
her blue gown heavy and rich, merely said, “She is unwell, and could not make
In the letter the golden queen leaves for Rhys and the others she says this:
‘Do not trust the others. The
sixth queen was not ill.’
This is obviously what sparked the speculation but I don’t think the queen is Feyre’s mother and secretly stayed away for that. I think she was at that convention in Neva. And I think it was about the threat of Prythian. Not Hybern. Why bring that up again if not to hint at that idea? I think even then the queens were working with Hybern and Jurian.
“Because the King of Hybern is indeed
about to launch a war, and he wants to resurrect Jurian to do it.”
warrior whose soul Amarantha had imprisoned within that hideous ring as
punishment for killing her sister. The ring that contained his eye …
Mor groaned, “Why
would the king want to resurrect Jurian? He was so odious. All he liked to do was
talk about himself.”
Why indeed did the king want to resurrect Jurian? The answer was that he became an emissary to the queens.
“You made a very big mistake,” the king said to Rhysand, my mate’s
arms banded around me, “the day you went after the Book. I had no need of it. I
was content to let it lie hidden. But the moment your forces started sniffing
around … I decided who better than to be my liaison to the human realm than my
newly reborn friend, Jurian? He’d just finished all those months of recovering
from the process, and longed to see what his former home had become, so he was
more than happy to visit the continent for an extended visit.”
Indeed the queens
smiled at him—bowed their heads. Rhys’s arms tightened in silent warning.
cunning Jurian, who suffered so badly at the end of theWar—now
my ally. Here to help me convince these queens to aid in my cause. For a price
of his own, of course, but it has no bearing here. And wiser to work with me,
my men, than to allow you monsters in the Night Court to rule and attack.
Jurian was right to warn their Majesties that you’d try to take the Book—that
you would feed them lies of love and goodness, when he had seen what the High Lord of the
Night Court was capable of. The hero of the human forces, reborn as a gesture
to the human world of my good faith. I do not wish to invade the continent—but
to work with them.
I feel like this all but proves this theory. We know that there is a summit happening in Neva, on the continent, that Feyre’s father attended to consider the threat that Prythian presents. We know that the Sixth Queen was missing during this time as well. We know that Jurian was sent as an emissary to the queens and that he visited the continent for an extended period of time. He was with the sixth mortal queen and those on the continent convincing them to ally with Hybern and go to war against Prythian.
TL;DR: The queens were always working for Hybern and the Sixth was away not due to illness but because she was on the continent working to turn those people against Prythian and have them ally with Hybern.
(I’m definitely making another post about Jurian because that….Is going to be relevant in ACOWAR and no-one is really talking about it that much but it scares me.)
so i got curious & looked it up, and in a twist that will surprise absolutely flippin’ no one, a woman has not written an episode of game of thrones since early season 3. there have been four episodes written by women in the entire series.
i get that this show has largely been written by the same small group of men all throughout its run, which could be used as an excuse for why it hasn’t incorporated women writers in so long, but like … wouldn’t it be great if they had? take me to that au!
“It’s the fact that I could become a part of GOT7. Since I passed the audition, I had spent only 7 months as a trainee and then was immediately added to the members of GOT7 in order to begin the preparation routine for our debut. Up to that time I had never danced once in my life, so it was very hard to keep up with other members who had been preparing for the debut since a long time ago. That’s why I feel really lucky to be as I’m now - being able to do activities as a member of GOT7” - Choi Youngjae
Today i played a game with a small girl, i think she was maybe 11 or 12? She talked about so many cool map tricks and ways to use the characters, and was really, REALLY good at Phara.
After I complimented her on a nice play, she invited me to a group- and then her dad showed up too and said hello! We ended up all playing together. Eventually friends (and a couple that were just friendly teammates that she invited because they were cool) kept glomming onto our group til we had a full team and we Wrecked. Shop. I had no idea what I was in for.
In our last match together (she and her dad had to leave for dinner) she got play of the game by knocking four of the enemy team off the bridge at lijang tower in a tie breaker round.
AND she had gold in eliminations.
((Also, I’m sorry for accidentally cursing on mic that one time, I know your dad said it was ok but I still feel a little guilty! I don’t want to get anyone I play with in trouble. You and your dad were super nice, and I liked talking about all the cool stuff you knew about Overwatch. ))
For this I am certain, how I feel about you,
Love runs quick to my heart, I vow that it’s true,
This passion that burns is a fresh fire- been sparked,
With your footprints my life will forever be marked,
Hand and hand I will walk with you til death bid adieu,
And even beyond that it is you I shall pursue,
This thing that I feel breaks barriers of thought,
The name for this fondness has never been taught,
You grow forests in my mind, plant flowers at my feet,
A beautiful garden where we often come to meet,
A soft place for us to land whenever we may fall,
I have found that soulmates do indeed exist after all,
And lucky I count myself to be on this day,
Knowing that you love me the same unparalleled way.
One of my favorite things about [the Brexit piece] is that we had David Tennant reading Scottish tweets about Donald Trump. Here’s our text conversation [of how that came about]. We had been writing jokes about Sam doing accents terribly, so I texted her to ask: “How’s your Scottish accent?” And she wrote back, “About as good as my Australian accent.” I said, “Maybe we can get Patrick Stewart to do it,” and her answer was, “My agent reps David Tennant. Hold on.” In an hour, we were emailing David Tennant! [Laughs] He was on his way to the Broadchurch set and pulled over to the side of the road to shoot the video with his phone. That’s how our show gets made in a nutshell!
