Orochimaru + high pony tail + tight sleeveless shirt + That Smirk = far too attractive for words. Now put Orochimaru in that exact outfit/situation with *Sakumo* in front of him and even if they were on a mission Sakumo would just walk headfirst off a cliff/into a tree/wall/another person. Chill? What chill does he have? What composure? What reputation of being an elite shinobi? No, he just straight up fell over when a pretty person smiled *in his general vicinity*. Sakumo: dork forever.
30. “I must admit I find that way too attractive.”
It’s past midnight, Aaron knows because that show Liv always watches has finished and she’s actually asleep. It settles him a little, knowing that Jacob’s moaning hasn’t managed to stir her awake.
The sound of his son suddenly breaking into a little cry is enough to make Aaron roll out of bed and stumble over to the crib.
Jacob’s grisly, won’t settle without his milk and Aaron slowly scoped him up in his arms, sees if he can do without it.
“Will cuddles do?” Aaron whispers, rocks Jacob in his arms and then tuts as the crying persists.
He’s hardly slept all week, Jacob hasn’t been settling and it’s made everything harder. It’s made Aaron doubt himself time after time until Robert sorts him out with some kind words and he feels better about it all.
Aaron feels a pang of guilt as he watches Robert roll out of bed and sigh, he’s back at work full time now, bringing in the money because they both felt too guilty about leaving their little boy with anyone else all day. He’s practically a dead man walking, Aaron thinks as he watches Robert offer him a sleepy smile and then kiss at his head.
“Bottle.” Robert mumbles, on automatic, knows exactly what to do.
Aaron nods, rocks Jacob still and starts stroking through his brown curls gently, trying to get him settled a little for his bottle. “S'alright bud, just -” he’s so tired that it’s hard to even get words out, “Just wait for daddy and then you can go back to sleepy byes yeah?” He sways a little, then mindlessly walks down the stairs with Jacob and watches Robert in the kitchen.
He’s only got his underwear one, hands moving quickly, pressing down lids and twisting bottles and helping in power. He’s a machine at it. Aaron smiles warmly, can’t believe that his heart still skips a beat when he sees Robert do such trivial little things. They haven’t had any alone time for weeks now, just can’t seem to have a moment to themselves which is filled with anything other than talking about new toys for Jacob or sleeping. But that doesn’t mean Aaron’s not wanted to. Everything inside him heightens as he watches Robert walk towards him, barely with anything on, lifting an eyebrow which means he’s going to get Jacob and then he’s feeding him in his arms.
Aaron’s heart rate goes out of control, suddenly wants to kiss Robert senseless, would if he wasn’t holding their little boy and feeling like a zombie inside.
“Better now bud?” Robert whispers, tilts the bottle and watches Jacob’s eyes widen in surprise as he sucks at the bottle and gets more and more milk. The sound of him trying to catch his breath makes Robert laugh breathlessly.
“Steady down lad.” He says, realises almost immediately that he sounds like his father and he has no idea how to feel.
He doesn’t get the chance to wonder about it because his eyes flutter towards Aaron and he feels his heart melt at the way Aaron’s looking at him.
“What?” Robert mumbles, half asleep, eyes squinting towards his husband.
Aaron steps forward, peers down at Jacob and sees that he’s drifting off back to sleep. “You.” He says, voice like gravel.
Robert gulps hard, feels something stir inside him and then he’s smiling. “Is that so?” He whispers, soft and slow and then he looks down at Jacob, removes the bottle from his mouth with caution as he sees his son’s eyes flutter until they shut.
“I must admit,” Aaron grabs the top of Robert’s arm and makes the older man hitch his breath. “I find that way too attractive.” He says, eyes flickering towards Robert’s lips and then smiling.
Robert frowns. “What?” He says, confused. “Me looking like a zombie, or my hair needing to be cut?” He says, feels like shit.
Aaron shakes his head and then tiptoes until he can kiss Robert’s forehead. "You being you, you being a dad, knowing what to do, not complaining, being all - all sexy.“
Robert’s eyes widen. “Think someone’s just missed my body for too long.” He says, knows that it’s been too long, that being dads to a little one will always get in the way.
Aaron frowns, “More than that.” He says, then looks down at Jacob. “You’re such a good -” he yawns gently and then waves a hand out to apologise.
“So are you.” Robert says, leans down and kisses Aaron gently, feels himself falling too deep into it and then he has to back away.
“Sorry, just too tired to show ya a real good time.” Robert mumbles, kisses Aaron’s temple as a way to apologise.
Aaron’s eyes flutter, “Same here,” he mumbles, “Shame, I would have done so much to ya n'all.“
Robert’s eyes widen and then he yawns again. "I’ll hold ya to that Mr Sugden.” He says, looks down at Jacob and then kisses his head gently as Aaron walks up the stairs again, yawning all the way.
- Rhys’s last name is Hotpants (then she
retracted and said his name might be revealed in future novels).
- She doesn’t think Aelin and Rhys would
fight if they met, they have to much in common. If they met Aelin would be like
“I’m too distracted by how attractive you are.” If they got into a verbal fight
Aelin would win. Her mean streak runs deeper than Rhys’s. Then she’d feel
guilty because “he’s too pretty to cry.”
- If Amren and Manon were tapped in an
elevator they’d have a stare off until they both got too hungry to continue.
Manon would tear off the elevator’s ceiling panels with her claws and Amren
would climb the wires. Then they’d go get a cup of blood together.
- Sarah likes to write “not nice” female
characters like Amren and Nesta because she doesn’t think she was always the
nicest person in high school. She also believes that no one is ever completely
sweet and kind all the time, we’re all a mix of good and bad (except her
sister-in-law who is apparently the nicest person in the world).
- She wrote 20 000 words of Tower of Dawn her first day sitting down
to write it.
of Dawn will be told from the perspectives of
Chaol, Nesryn and Yrene.
- If her characters order Starbucks Amren
would be super strong expresso, Rhys would get a latte with pretty foam art and
Feyre wouldn’t drink coffee but she’d get English breakfast tea.
- If she could bring her characters anywhere
in our world she would bring Feyre to the Louvre. She would just watch Feyre
look at the art for hours. She would bring Aelin to the Metropolitan Opera House,
which is her favorite place in the world.
- Page 666 of ACOWAR was completely
coincidental. When she was reading the version with numbered pages for the
first time she burst out laughing when she saw what happened on that page.
- She refused to answer who has the longest
wingspan but says she might throw it in at the end of the very last novel.
Until then we can choose for ourselves who has the longest ‘wingspan’ and the
best ‘flying skills’.
- It upsets her that people feel like they
need to apologize for reading fantasy or romance novels. She gained most of her
knowledge of healthy romantic and sexual relationships from those kinds of
- She still has her copy of Pride and Prejudice from ninth grade
where she drew hearts and wrote Sarah Darcy in gel pen.
of Glass wasn’t a huge success right away. If Crown of Midnight hadn’t sold well she
only would have gotten three books.
went off on a really long but super sweet tangent about how much she loves her
husband. She says that despite common fandom belief he is not the inspiration
for Rhys (their only similarities are that they have dark hair and are tall)
but their relationship did inspire the tone of Feysand’s relationship, especially
the importance placed on equality and partnership. Josh was smiling like crazy
the entire time to the point where Sarah had to stop because she kept laughing
at his “goofy grin.”
- The very first scene of ACOTAR was inspired
by the first song of the Princess Mononoke
soundtrack while the last scene of ACOWAR was inspired by the last song on
the soundtrack. This was a coincidence.
- Her dog sleeps in Sarah’s office while she writes. She goes there after her walk every morning like she’s going to work.
- She gets inspiration for her female
characters through music. She gets inspiration for her male characters by
trying to figure our how to get their shirts off in a rainstorm.

it makes me so sad that i have to say this but someone being bi does not mean they will cheat on their partners like??? them being attracted to more than one gender does not mean they’re more “prone to cheating” or whatever bullshit you’re spewing because cheating has nothing to do with sexuality, it’s just people being assholes and i am fucking tired of having to say this over and over
