I’ve been thinking a lot about this in the past few days, and I’ve seen others point this out before, but between Three Dark Crowns and One Dark Throne there is a tonal shift. Obviously, the queens are in their Ascension Year and it’s anybody’s game, and Katharine just got possessed by the dead queens and climbed out of the Breccia Domain, so you’d expect for the books to get darker, no? In some ways, they do become darker - by the end of Five Dark Fates several important characters have died, a civil war has broken out, and an entire city has been massacred. But while in some regards the books did get darker, I still think there is a weird pivot between books one and two that you don’t notice unless you reread the first book again having read all the other books.
I think the perfect example that encompasses this tonal shift is the character of Natalia Arron. I haven’t reread Three Dark Crowns in full, but from the parts that I have reread, Natalia is a much more horrible person than I remembered. One Dark Throne and the fallout of the events at the end made me reimagine Natalia in a different way than what she started out as. I absolutely loathed book one Natalia, thought she was just as bad as Genevieve if not worse for their treatment of Katharine. There are times when you think Natalia genuinely cares about Katharine in her own way - I don’t expect every mentor figure to be a perfectly warm mother figure - but even by the end, Natalia seems more concerned about what it means that her queen is gone. Not only that, but we see how Natalia governs in this book, how cruel she is in her hardline stance on the law and how little she cares about helping anyone but her family. And then in book two, Natalia is this warmer almost-motherly figure who has secretly seen Katharine as her daughter all this time (supported by her interactions with Katharine in The Young Queens - where, by the way, she slaps a six-year-old Arsinoe right across the face), and at first it’s like, okay... this doesn’t really align with what we’ve seen of Natalia from book one. And then I think of how none of that is ever really mentioned again, whether it’s because Katharine has bigger ambitions now or she has the queens to protect her, I don’t know.
I remember reading reviews of some people who’d read the first book and were surprised by how it reads as an adult book at certain parts, and maybe this is a very big stretch, but how possible is it that someone involved in publishing Kendare’s book read that and thought that she should roll back on some of the darker/more adultish aspects of the books, maybe revamp Natalia’s character so she’s not a totally cruel figure? Am I the only one who thinks the change in tone/characterization between books one and two is jarring?

I’ve come to the conclusion that if someday I ever write a book, I am going to put it in first person present tense, so everything will be happening as it happens and no one in the audience can guess if any of the POVs die.

Revali is the type to never call Link anything except his name until the worst happens, and then every possible pet name he’s secretly been thinking comes out all at once and when Link comes out the other side of whatever near death situation he got himself into just fine, he puffs up like the big bird he is and denies ever using or even hearing of pet names

Okay so haha I’m supposed to be doing prefinal work, final projects and papers and junk and well, instead I started writing an Order 66 (or sort of lack thereof) featuring Cin Drallig, Shaak Ti and Obi-Wan Kenobi so far. I wrote like, 6 pages in less than an hour. Uh oops.
I haven’t written this much in years. I haven’t written this much fanfiction in well forever (cause I didn’t write fanfiction until like, a month ago.)
This is very weird. I have so many ideas and prompts. Ahhh
But it feels nice and even tho I’m not a great writer (I do suck most of the time, usually with longer stuff), I’m gonna keep doing it so ya know, heads up???
Star Wars y’all 👍

Aster, peony and sweet pea for Jian
aster: tell us about a gentle moment shared with your f/o.
A gentle moment with Jian would be when he surprised with a box of french fries he had made from work at his restaurant knowing they are my favorite food and how he made them from scratch just for me and perfect too. :))
peony: tell us about a moment where you or your f/o were very embarrassed. 
I got embarrassed when Jian complimented a pack of bananas when this whole time he teased and meant me. I love him for his charm for this,
sweet pea: if you feel comfortable, tell us a little about your first time with your f/o.
Our first time started out slow and sweet with a typical make out session before it then got tender and passionate which lead us to the bedroom as the heat sparked between us and so forth. :33

My favorite game to play with ships is called “Does it have more fics on ao3 than Nick Carraway/Jay Gatsby.”
Tumblr media
It’s not a terribly high bar to pass or anything, but it’s just high enough that countless ships will come short even if they aren’t “certified rarepairs” or whatever, thus making it the perfect metric.

God I miss playing the Sims so much. ;w; Unfortunately, my laptop can’t handle the game anymore (had to uninstall them) so I just gawk at old screenshots of my playthroughs with Jian instead because of all the feels. 👉 👈
