Can I just say how much… I really, really love writing Rhys and Mor? And maybe just take two seconds to chat about how underrated their relationship is? The more I write Rhys, the more I keep finding myself in these scenes with him coming to her, leaning on her, using her for help and advice whether he knows it or not. I think Rhys loves her so, so much. And I honestly believe that out of everyone in the IC, if Mor were to die it would hit him harder than anyone else (save Feyre, of course). They’ve grown up together, and he’s fought his entire life to give her independence and freedom, and I think Mor returns the favor when he lands on her balcony after the Mountain, and he sort of just… lets her keep being this shepherd in his life, helping him keep from fully unraveling. I think Cassian and Azriel aren’t the only ones who feel her endless warmth and spirit. Say what you will about the Cazigan dynamic in the books and who has to “shield” whom from Mor’s infectious spirit, but if you think about it, Rhys is exempt from that protection. He just gets to enjoy Mor for all she is, how selfless and supportive and encouraging, and she too gets to be there for her cousin who has empowered her and given her status and strength over her family, these things that make her into a queen. They’re friends. Really, really good friends and I think there is so much love between them that we don’t get to see a lot of in ACOMAF, but if SJM were to ever write the book as Rhys or elaborate on it, I think we’d be surprised just how much goes on between the two of them and how much he confides in her. And I think given how much they’ve gone through together… that’s just, I don’t know, really really special and I love it so much. It’s nice to see that even when the entire world and family around them falls apart, there is still this lovely little kernal of them left to lean on and it never goes away.
Me: (a person with a severe form of pots and eds) I don’t think I can walk today, can you get my wheelchair out of the trunk for me?
My sister: oh suck it up, I get tired sometimes too just get out and walk
Me: *gets out of car, literally passes out*
“You’re just lazy. You just have to exercise. Stop being so dramatic. -my ex boyfriend every time I complained or couldn’t do something because of pain/tiredness. Now I’m facing a posible MS diagnosis.”
My dad: “I’m mentally tough and I would never be affected by depression.”
Me: *has been professionally diagnosed with depression, which he knows* Gee thanks… not like that’s a metaphorical punch in the gut at all. Sure, it’s just a character weakness or something. /angry sarcastic thoughts
Lot’s of people: “you should put away your phone before you go to bed, and you wouldn’t have trouble falling asleep.”
Would be reasonable advise if i didn’t keep explaining that my anxiety gets worse at night and my phone keeps me distracted and calm until i get tired enough to fall asleep. Please listen.
‘i wish I was in a wheelchair sometimes, that way I wouldn’t t have to do anything, all you have to do is give yourself a little bit of a push, and that’s it, it’s like an advantage thinking about it’- a friend that also bends down to talk to me..
