so i need to rAMpAGe about the chapter of shadow and bone i'm on and thOUghts and this is a disorganized rant about a bunch of random shit if you want an essay the door is that way and also i'm worried about malina fans hating me (: fun also i haven't finished the book yet so my opinions on some stuff could change this is just my 12:29 am chaoticness
so i've already read SOC and crooked kingdom but im currently reading the shadow and bone trilogy i mean i prob won't finish it in time for the netflix original but hey
so hot damn i got to the chapter where baghra tells alina about the darkling's actual (or at least current) motives
i knew something was off with the darkling cause he's supposedly this all powerful mysterious guy and it seemed like he was opening up to alina wayyyy too quickly so i was suspicious about him but GodDaMN it still hurt finding out he was using her even though i sorta saw it coming and like
i still do kinda ship darklina cause multiple reasons i'm too lazy to explain rn but i don't really think it's love or know enough about his character yet to figure out whether or not the darkling is capable of love since he's emotionally abusive although if not healthy full-on love i do think it could stem into like a romantic dynamic/psychological bond but we're not gonna get into my whole darklina rant,, but yeah i am rooting for darklina but not really in the sense of "true love" because considering the darkling's character i don't really think he's entirely capable of love but it's complicated jrhjrkwe, i mean for me shipping is closer to a relationship/some kind of romantic dynamic i like instead of flat out love so i guess that could tie into it
...now i'm worried this is gonna trigger an anti shipper/pro shipper fight so we're gonna move away from shipping lmao but
i know that he was (at least currently) manipulating alina but that darklina kiss scene was 😳
JUST GONNA SAY I SAW BAGHRA BEING THE DARKLING'S MOM FROM A MILE AWAY LIKE NO ONE ELSE WOULD BE ABLE TO TALK TO THE DARKLING THAT WAY WITHOUT BEING FLUNG INTO THE SUN UNLESS U WERE HIS MOM
so mal shows up and like, i don't currently ship malina (no hate on ppl who do you do you man) and i mean as a character i do kinda dislike mal but even though i've made mal jokes with my other friends who don't like him tbh i don't hate him yet cause he could become better later and i'm sure he went through shit of his own while alina was away but like bOI can you not be rude to alina but idk
cause then again i might like mal more later and sometimes fandom mob mentality isn't always right (imo people r too harsh on luther from tua) but i'm still mehhhh on mal rn, but then again i do simp for the darkling and according to one of my friends he kills a bunch of ppl later so lmaoooo hrjkewqejrjjk
Alina x Zoya would be an interesting ship i mean zoya's kinda being bitchy to alina rn but rIVals tO loVers i mean one of my friends who has read the whole trilogy says zoya gets kinda better
GENYA AND ALINA'S FRIENDSHIP IS S O C U T E I CANNOT
alina is kinda generic YA protagonist at times but I still find her to be sorta likable idk
nadia and marie r underrated side characters tbh i feel like i'd vibe with them
THE KINGGG BE HURTING MY GIRL GENYA )))):
side note but i feel like i'm the lovechild of genya and alina
THEEEE DARKKLLING IM MAD AT YOU BUT STILL KINDA SIMPING AND ALSO SEEMS PSYCHOLOGICALLY INTERESTING AND I WANNA SEE WHERE YOUR CHARACTERIZATION AND SHIT GOES AND ALSO LIKE THE FULL EXTENT OF HIS MOTIVES
and last but not least the fact that i have to wait until BOOK 2 TO MEET NIKOLAI IS A HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION
i'm also having slight anxiety about being in this fandom and shipping alarking because a lot of alarking fans seem to really hate mal and like i said before i don't like mal a ton yet but i don't like really even hate him at all just kinda dislike and like i'm sure there's more to his character and maybe if he got his own perspective i'd like him more and it seems like there's a lot of discourse between alarkling fans and malina fans and i mean cAn'T wE aLL jUst bE fRienDS and i guess it sucks that some alarkling fans r so aggressive about their hatred towards mal (at least i think from what i've heard) i mean they are fictional so hate what u wanna hate i guess but based on other shipping discourses i've seen i feel like the anti mal could get spread to like anti-mal fans and like obviously tHatS nOT gOODD
...please don't try to make sense of this i'll probably edit shit in the morning when my brain is not on steroids

“To be a human being among people and to remain one forever, no matter in what circumstances, not to grow despondent and not to lose heart — that’s what life is all about, that’s its task.”

You know what would be neat? A wiki-type thing for book series and tv shows and stuff where you can put in the point that you've gotten up to and it only gives you information up to that point. Like if you're watching a show for the first time and you forgot why a detail was relevant, you can go put in the episode you're on and look it up without fear of being spoiled.

Maybe I didn’t understand someone thoroughly when an event first happened, but after watching a show I get a second chance to stand in their shoes from a different point of view, perhaps one that is easier for me to grasp.
