Tell your opinions all about feyre please 😊💙🌌
Thank you so much for asking for my thoughts !! I really appreciate it.
So! My thoughts on Feyre. She’s my favorite character in the ACOTAR series and the one I relate to the most.
I found her experience with familial abuse to really resonate with me, and to be very relatable. I didn’t find her reactions to it later on and in different books to be relatable to me personally, but I’m sure it was relatable to others. There are a lot of survivors who don’t really understand what they suffered was abuse or that they will excuse their abusers behavior out of love or many different reasons. So I think Feyre would be relatable for them, and I’m glad for that. But I wish it had been more relatable for me. I wanted to read how it hurt and hurt and kept hurting, how betrayed she felt by the ones who are suppose to love and care for her, and how angry and bewildered their behavior made her feel. And I wanted to read her overcome that. And become a better person than them. And be successful in spite of them. And show them how she doesn’t need them, and can rise above how they treated her. And I wanted to read her live her life without feeling like there was still a family shaped hole inside. And I wanted to read her forgive them, but only after they deserved it. After they realized how they treated her was wrong, and they apologized, and changed. I wanted to read the closure I haven’t been able to have. So on one hand I was really happy with how family abuse presented, but I guess not entirely happy on how it was handled.
I loved reading her fall in love with Tamlin. Not because I loved them together, but because she loved a man who was so wrong for her, and how long it took her to realize it. I found that to be incredibly relatable. I did love how partner abuse was handled in the first two books. I like how it reminded us how easy it is to fall for abusive partners. Or the wrong kinds of men. I loved reading how she tore herself apart for him, she gave him everything she had, and when she had nothing left, she gave herself. How many of us have done that? Given all we had for men who wouldn’t do the same? Or women- depending on who you’re into. I loved reading her slowly realize something was wrong, but she wasn’t sure what. She slowly realized they weren’t right for each other. And it wasn’t until after she had left him that she realized he was abusive. I think that’s incredibly relatable. How many of us have been in harmful relationships, and we love our partner so we stick it out, but the whole time there’s this nagging feeling that something is wrong ? And sometimes it isn’t until after we had the courage to leave that we realized exactly what, and how wrong it was. I enjoyed reading how Feyre handled it, and how similar it is to experiences readers have had.
Most of all I loved reading her fall in love with the right man for her. I loved reading her realizing she deserved more, she deserved better. I loved reading her find someone who would love and cherish her the way she would him. And I enjoyed the internal conflict she had when falling in love. How she felt disloyal to her past love, even though it had been wrong, and at the same time knew that this connection was what she wanted.
I loved Feyre. And I loved reading her story. I loved reading how she learned and grew and overcame all the obstacles thrown her way. I’m saddened that there will be no more books from her perspective, because I loved reading how she thought and felt.
