the cadres

me, thinking: well lorcan loves elide and elide loves both manon and aelin, and manon has a crush on dorian and his best friend is chaol and chaol once dated celeana who actually is aelin who is now married and mated to rowan who was allied with the cadre and gavriel is the father of aedion who has the feely feels for lysandra who was once the enemy of celeana but is now her scheming gal pal but now she’s AELIN AND THE REAL AELIN IS CHAINED IN A METAL COFFIN HOLY SHIT WERE ALL FUCKED

Reasons to love Fenrys
  • Rowan calls him boyo
  • He is so devoted to his brother that he tied his life to a Queen he hates
  • He unabashedly fights the blood oath from the moment he swore it
  • He asks Rowan to kill him if Maeve ever gave him the order to kill Aelin
  • He has a smart-ass mouth
  • He literally starts a bet on Rowan killing an Ilken WHILE he himself is injured and has poison running through his system
  • He is cranky when he doesn’t eat
Gavriel and Aelin
  • Aelin: It's the middle of the night. Why are you awake?
  • Gavriel: Couldn't sleep
  • Aelin: I know what might help
  • Aelin: *singing* Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur.
  • Gavriel: *sighs and walks away*
  • Aelin: Happy kitty, sleepy kitty purr purr purrr
Friendly Reminder with 3 parts

Rowan and ALL of the other members of his cadre are dreamers

Which means that it’s very likely that Connall and Vaughan (along with Fenrys) will try to help Aelin

And if they help Aelin it’s likely she’ll welcome them into her court and then the entire cadre will be together again and they’ll finally have a queen that cares about them

Incorrect Quote #6
  • Rowan: Okay, let’s go over this one more time…If you bite it and you die, it’s poisonous. If it bites you and you die, it’s venomous. Got it?
  • Chaol: I think so….
  • Aedion: Wait, I have a question! What if I bite it and it dies?
  • Mannon: That means you’re poisonous.
  • Fenrys: And what if it bites itself and I die?
  • Elide: That’s voodoo.
  • Aelin: Okay, but what if it bites me and someone else dies?
  • Rowan: [getting annoyed] That’s correlation, not causation.
  • Dorian: Alright, and what if we bite each other and neither of us die?
  • Lysandra: …That’s kinky

The Cadre

“Rowan Whitethorn is a legend. And so is his—what do you call them?” “Cadre,” she said glumly. “The six of them …” Aedion loosed a breath. “We used to tell stories about them around fires. Their battles and exploits and adventures.”

Vaughan when he comes back to Doranelle
  • Vaughan *comes back after searching the North for Lorcan*: Where is he?
  • Fenrys: Meave broke his oath
  • Vaughan: Why?
  • Fenrys: I'm sure Gavriel would love to explain, but his oath was broken too.
  • Vaughan: What about you?
  • Fenrys: Oh Maeve just loves torturing me. Talking of torture, there's the 19 year old fire-breathing Queen of Terrassen currently strapped in a coffin iron next door.
  • Vaughan: What the fuck
  • Fenrys: Aelin Ashryver Galathynius. Ashryver. Like Gavriel's son.
  • Vaughan: What the fucking fuck.
  • Fenrys: She also happens to be Rowan's wife and mate.
  • Vaughan: What.
  • Fenrys: Because guess what, Rowan's first mate wasn't actually his mate but just a game of Maeve's.
  • Vaughan: The. Fuck.
  • Fenrys: OH YOU MISSED EVEN MORE. Lorcan gave up the tortured loner life and got married to the Lady of Perranth but then he screwed up and I think their marriage is over.
  • Vaughan: WHAT. THE. FUCK.
Incorrect Quote #18
  • Rowan: All right everyone, pay attention. I have an announcement to make and I only have a minute.
  • Aedion: Why? Are you in a hurry?
  • Rowan: No I was referring to your short attention spans.
Now listen here fandom

I want Aelin to be pregnant at the beginning of tog 6. I want her to be pregnant and to realise it while in the coffin. I want her to realise this and raise hell, I want her to realise this and burn her way out of her coffin because just encase she was raised in a cage and chains(I.e. the keep but also being horn tied to be queen of terasen) does not mean her child will be.

I want her to burn her way out if the coffin and give Maeve hell. I want the cadre to not even think twice about helping Aelin because they know that not only is she the better queen but because she is Rowans mate and they all think of Rowan as the grumpy father who would do anything for them.

I want her to escape and the cadre to follow her. I want them to hunt down her squad. I want Rowan to find her. I want their reunion scene to be the most heart wrenching thing I can read. I want them to admit that they are mates to each other. I want them to say it over and over again as they kiss and (coughs) have reunion sex. I want Aelin to take his hand and place it on her stomach. I want him to inhale her scent but notice something else mixed with it. I want her to look at him, with a shyness he has never seen her posses. I want him to just look at her and know. I want him to look down at their hands on her stomach and cry. I want him to kiss her, to kiss her stomach. To beg her to tell him she isn’t lying.

I want that baby to be born after they take back the Terresan castle. I want Lysandra and Manon and Elide to be there as her midwives. I want the males all waiting outside the room. Except rowan. I want him with his mate, I want him letting her break his hand in her grasp as she gives birth. I want that child to cry the minute their born and only stop when it sees there parents.

I want that child to be the most loved child. I want Dorian spoiling it and Aedion giving it a blunt knife whenever they leave the castle. I want that child to be the thing that makes the squad always return victorious from battle.

And when the war is won I want that child to grow up and rule Terasen. With its fathers hair and mothers eyes.

I want a happy ending.
