You were hopelessly in love with Crowley, bloody king of hell.

Hi!So I finished Kings Rising and I still don't get the sudden change of Laurent's attitude towards Damen in the first 8 chapters or something. Acting all cold,like he doesn't give a damn about Damen. Also he knew who Damen was all along, so why now?

Hey Anon I think this is a common query people have cause I had a very similar question off anon a while ago (which I answered privately).

So let’s see if I can explain my interpretation of those painful chapters (I was suffering so much you have no idea).

I believe that after the battle of Charcy Laurent knew he couldn’t pretend anymore to be oblivious about Damen’s identity. And he knew the consequences to that. Edit: I deleted the cut cause people using the app couldn’t see the rest, sorry if it’s too long.

First of all there would be repercussions amongst the Veritians. Laurent has been consistently defamed by his uncle for years having convinced the court and the council Laurent’s a spoiled, unseasoned, temperamental, disobedient prince unfit to rule, who had inappropriate feelings for his own brother, who has been colluding with the enemy, who’s now taken the Akielon prince to his bed and fights beside him. So Laurent couldn’t give margin to his uncle’s accusations, he had to stay away from Damen in order not to prove his uncle right, he had to make clear he was making a political alliance in order to secure his rightful claim to the throne, not a lovers pact.

Then there’re repercussions regarding the Akielons Damen is trying to win to his cause. As we all know Veritians hate the Akielons and vice versa, they are enemies for decades maybe centuries, so an alliance between both cast out princes is unheard of, before that the best both countries could manage was truce. And Laurent knew the fact that Damen was his slave would be a huge issue, an insult, a crime to the Akielon warriors. So he had to maintain appearances, he couldn’t show they had feelings for each other, he couldn’t let be of public knowledge they had been lovers. 

He had to earn the respect of the Akielons almost as much as he had to earn the respect of his own people, so he couldn’t appear weak, and he couldn’t let Damen to appear weak either. Neither of them could afford for their allies to believe they were coming together because they were being influenced, or because they were blinded by love and their feelings for one another, they couldn’t afford doubt about their intentions to secure their places as kings. And Laurent knew if he didn’t keep his distance Damen could jeopardize everything (picture Damen giving a speech, like the one he did on the trial, but to Nikandros and Makedon and their army, it’d be a disaster).

Imagine what would’ve happened if it had come to light from the beginning Laurent had slept with not only his enemy, but most of all the man who killed his brother. What people would think of him. And what would people think of Damen.

We have a little glimpse of how that would go, remember how difficult it was to get the Akielon allies because of the mere presence of Laurent and the rumor that the princes were lovers? Remember this scene (that I like to call, Laurent the swerve master)?

‘Bannermen of Delpha. By now, you have seen the evidence that Kastor killed the King, our father. You know of his alliance with the usurper, the Regent of Vere. Even now, the Regent has troops stationed in Ios, ready to take Akielos. Tonight, we call for your pledge to fight them alongside us, and alongside our ally, Laurent of Vere.’

 There was an uneasy pause. Makedon and Straton had pledged to him in Ravenel, but that was before his alliance with Laurent. These men were being asked to accept Laurent and Vere at first sight, less than a generation out from the war.

 Barieus stepped forward. ‘I want assurances that Vere does not hold undue influence over Akielos.’

 Undue influence. ‘Speak plainly.’

 ‘They say the Prince of Vere is your lover.’

 ‘Who we take to our bed is not your concern.’

 ‘If our King takes Vere to his bed, it is our concern,’ said Barieus.

 ‘Shall I tell them what really happened between us? They want to know,’ Laurent said.

 ‘Do I have the question clear?’ said Laurent, speaking in Akielon. ‘You are asking if I lay with the man who killed my own brother?’

Laurent wore the slave cuff with utter disregard. He had no owner, the aristocratic arrogance of his posture said that. Laurent had always possessed an essential quality of the untouchable. He cultivated a faultless grace on the reclining couch, his chiselled profile and marble-chip eyes those of a statue. The idea that he would let anyone fuck him was impossible.

 Barieus said, ‘A man would have to be ice-cold to sleep with his brother’s killer.’

‘Then you have your answer,’ said Laurent.

And finally there are repercussions for Damen and Laurent’s relationship. That conversation they had at the tent right after the battle of Charcy is very powerful and encompasses a lot of what Laurent feels. The way he said it was meant to hurt Damen but deep down the content of his words were close to what he felt, especially the doubt and the hurt of being lied to. Also, before then Laurent was the only one, to his knowledge, who knew who Damen really was, so I guess it was easier for him to process his feelings when he was the only one who knew he was sleeping with the man who killed his brother. He probably didn’t understand it either, how he could fall for Damen of all people. It was very confusing and very difficult for him to accept his feelings before, let alone now that everyone would know Damen’s real identity.

Besides, Laurent needs to be in control, he must have the upper hand on every aspect of his life, so he had to have control over this too. He couldn’t let himself get hurt, he couldn’t let Damen dictate the tone of their first real encounter as Laurent and Damianos, he had to let Damen know he knew all along, he had to see Damen’s reaction to the truth, he had to see what would be Damen’s actions from that moment on. Would this change his feelings about Laurent? Would Damen fight for them even with everything that was at stake, even when Laurent himself was pushing him away? Laurent was giving Damen a chance to take a step back and to give up on them.

So I believe at the same time that Laurent was trying to assess his own feelings and Damen’s too, he was also trying to make an alliance between two enemy people to work out. Imagine how confusing that must be, the rollercoaster of emotions he was going through. So his incongruent behavior at the beginning of Kings Rising is very understandable.

I think that once he started to gain everyone’s trust specially Makedon’s, the alliance was secured, Nikandros was almost tolerating him, and he saw Damen’s feelings were true he started to slowly let himself show his feelings too.

Besides, after their encounter with Jokaste when they learned Damen probably had a child that was in danger and being sent to The Regent, Damen needed Laurent, he was hurting so Laurent couldn’t keep his cold stance towards Damen anymore. Laurent realized Damen needed him to be by his side as much as Damen had been beside him this whole time. Which was not an easy thing for Laurent to do, because no matter how many times Damen proved his value and his feelings, their past wouldn’t go away, their history of mutual hate was difficult to leave behind, he had to overcome so much to allow himself to love Damen as Damianos.

So I believe the fact that Damen probably for the first time needed him and he knew he was the only person who could comfort Damen, he was the only person who could help Damen was a huge turning point for Laurent’s behavior.  Because after everything they went through Laurent believed against all logic that Damen loved him and that he loved Damen too, so Laurent would do everything in his power not to let his uncle and Damen’s family hurt him anymore.

Phew, this was long. It’s just that Laurent is so complex and Laurent’s feelings are even more complex and difficult to explain, I felt it was important to have a full perspective of what he was probably feeling throughout that first half of Kings Rising to understand why he was first hostile, than cold, than loving towards Damen. This seemingly contradictory behavior is one of the things I like the most about Laurent, because it shows how complex of a character he is <3

What do you think Anon, my interpretation makes sense to you? If you had a different perception feel free to tell me, I love hearing different opinions.

Winter Day With 2PM

Spending a winter day with them.

Jun.K – If he had the day free he’d leave the plans up to you because he just wants to spend time with you. Really. Anything you want. Inside or outside, active or sedate, dining out or cooking in. His only concern throughout the day would be making sure you’re having fun and are staying warm because seeing you happy and taken care of makes him happy. And no matter what you chose to do he would be very playful and enthusiastic about everything.

Nichkhun – He’d want to do something active like skiing. It’s been a while since he had the chance and taking you would be the perfect excuse to hit the slopes. Khun would be the best, most patient instructor if it was your first time skiing. He’d stick to the bunny trails because it’s about being with you and having fun. He’s not the type to throw snowballs at his love, though he wouldn’t be above playfully tackling you and pouring handfuls of snow upon you. Once you were tired he’d get some hot cocoa and set you up at the bottom of the slopes. He wants you to watch as he does some of the more difficult trails to impress you.

Taecyeon – He’d enjoy traditional things like sledding with you and building snow-ok-cats instead of snowmen. If you also wanted to go hiking he’d take you to make you happy but it wouldn’t be his first choice. Once there and seeing the hushed stillness of the woods he’d understand why you wanted to come. When you came to a clearing both of you would let your inner child out and pretend you found a secret ice kingdom. Enchanted by the seclusion and magic of your surroundings you’d play as king and queen until you couldn’t feel your toes and it was time to return to the real world. Expansion

Wooyoung – Would prefer to make snow angels or snowmen close to home. That way when you decided you’d had enough of the cold there wouldn’t be far to go to get warmed up. As you played in the snow Wooyoung would frolic and be silly just to make you laugh because it’s what he lives for. After you’d had your fill of playing outside you’d go in the house, get warm and make some hot cocoa for the two of you while he called out over his shoulder your movie options. Agreeing on a movie you’d curl up next to him with your cocoas and a soft, fluffy blanket as you got lost in the movie.

Junho – Would love to do something exciting like snowmobile rides. Whether you’re racing about on your own or hanging on to him for dear life he’d want to zip through the snow and jump a few banks. The fresh air and excitement would invigorate him and after changing into some dry clothes he’d take you out to dinner and maybe some dancing. Not a club though, he would want it to be more private and have plenty of opportunity for slow dancing. You’d hang on to each other as you slowly turned in place and felt exhausted by the long day but very happy.

Chansung – He would really enjoy going hiking with you, especially if it was someplace secluded. It would recharge his batteries to do some exercise out in nature with you. A perfect day for him would be hiking in the morning and then going to an ice sculpture display with you later. Holding hands as you walked along each piece of artwork you both would marvel at the technique and artistry used. Finishing up the night would be grabbing take out and curling up on the couch for some good conversation.

Imagine being Elrond’s daughter and being forced to marry Legolas while actually being in love with Tauriel

I saw no one has written for this imagine and I really like it~ on the imaginexhobbit blog!

~~

“Father, please!” You pleaded, hurrying after him down the hall.

“I have made my decision, accept it.” Lord Elrond said over his shoulder, not slowing down. He had just told you the news of the marriage between you and King Thranduil’s son, Legolas. “It was difficult enough to even convince such a thing to that stubborn man!”

Huffing and pulling your dress up, you did your best to catch up. “If so, then call it off! I do not wish to be married to him.”

Dear Man, Sometimes I feel that Men do not understand the Trials that we Women face as we go about our Lives. How would you recommend that Women prevent ourselves from becoming Misandrists and Manthropes? —A Man-Eater With A Spot Of Indigestion

Dear Man-Eater,

Pardon me for a moment; I am still agog at the first line of your missive. You truly believe that Men do not understand a thing? How is this possible? We are Men. Men are defined by our understanding. If something cannot be understood by Man, it is outside human comprehension. You must accept these things as fact, lest you be guilty of blaspheming against Man. And who wishes to be guilty of blaspheming against Man?

Now I am sure that many women have read the above lines and are already dipping pens in inkwells, convinced that you have an example that will prove me wrong. It is a futile endeavor; I am a Man, and am therefore never wrong. So put away your pens; I will forestall some of your feminine complaints.

It is true that women are barred from working in most professions, and where women are allowed to work, they are paid less. It is true that women are expected to run a household, but that their work is never done; when the man of the household returns home, they must needs fetch and carry on his behalf. It is also true that men use women badly and then, having done so, impugn their virtue, while they themselves suffer no consequences.

But do you think Men do not understand this? Of course we understand it. We benefit from it daily. We only pretend not to understand it because it would be extremely inconvenient to admit the above directly. Why, if we did so, who would fetch our slippers?

Given those unalterable facts, your second question regarding misandry becomes more difficult to answer, as even with my vaunted male understanding, I cannot conceive of a way to avoid bitterness on your part.

On this, you must also follow the example of Men: Pretend.

Yours Truly,
Stephen Shaughnessy
King of Understanding Things

Post scriptum. When I asked who would wish to blaspheme against Man, I did not intend the question to be rhetorical. Those who wish to do so should so indicate by raising your hands.
