sarah j maas is just such a brilliant writer because aside from the content keeping your eyes glued to the page, she somehow manages to utilize the most common and predictable plot twists without us ever seeing them coming
I have exactly two headcanon about Obi-Wan Kenobi in terms of his knowledge of Anakin and Padme’s relationship, and I flip back and forth between the two of them:
1) Obi-Wan knows Anakin and Padme are fucking. He thinks–hopes–prays that it’s just fucking because Attachment is Forbidden and Surely Anakin Is Smarter Than This (haha psych). He actively helps keep their secret because Anakin is the least subtle person in the world and by god he has to do something.
2) Obi-Wan is the only person in the entire galaxy who does not know Anakin and Padme are fucking. The revelation that Padme is PREGNANT with ANAKIN’S CHILD is the most stunning plot twist he’s ever heard, how on earth did this happen??? He just Does Not Know.
realising i was gay is like when you’re watching a tv show and there’s a massive plot twist, and you’re like “what the hell? where did this come from?”, but then you rewatch the previous episodes and you’re like “this plot twist was the most obvious plot twist i have ever seen. how did i not see this coming”
My father never read past the third HP book and once told me when the last one came out he thought “Always” was Snape’s response to Dumbledore asking how long he’d been loyal to Voldemort. He remains convinced this would have been the best most heart breaking plot twist ever.
OKAY LISTEN I HAVE BEEN IN THIS FANDOM FOR YEARS AND THIS IS THE MOST PLEASANT AND BIGGEST PLOT TWIST EVER.
HERE I WAS TRASHING CALVIN’S PETTY ASS AND ALL OF A SUDDEN?? WHERE DID THOSE PICS EVEN COME FROM?? WHY DO I ALREADY SHIP IT TO THE MOON AND BACK??
Tayston? Hiddleswift? I DONT FUCKIN CARE IT’S BEAUTIFUL
if Tommy turns out to be the killer then i swear Eye Candy does not deserve another season at all. not because it will break my ship but because its the most obvious plot twist ever and i believe these writers could do much much better.
