Okay so if there was a process to get Sophie adopted, that means there’s an elvin adoption system. But since death is so uncommon how do they get in the system? Wouldn’t it bring shame if they were to disown a child (idk I think that’s how the elves would react)?
What's on your mind?
I got my first boyfriend
REEEEEEEEEFNB FEJKVH JKVNJF NJE NVJNCNMCNM<

Wait, why is Wylinh pedo?
BextheBest: DEX! SOMEONE'S HERE!
LextheSnowKing: I feel like we saw him somewhere.
RexthePranksterPrince: I remember! He's the teal one! I forgot his name.
LextheSnowKing: Wasn't it Ritz Cracker or something? Not important, I thought Dex and the teal one didn't get along.
BextheBest: I thought he had a crush on the teal one.
RexthePranksterPrince: He had a crush on the teal one's sister, you idiot.
BextheBest: Anyways, What's he doing at Rhimeshire?
LextheSnowKing: Isn't this the guy, Sophie rejected Dex for?
RexthePranksterPrince: oh, now I remember. Maybe he's here for Sophie?
LextheSnowKing: Should we tell him that Sophie's not here?
ChandelierHead: You guys realize that I'm right here, right?
BextheBest: STRANGER DANGER! STATE YOUR NAME AND PURPOSE TEAL ONE!
LextheSnowKing: YOU HAVE 10 SECONDS TO COMPLY WITH AN EXPLANATION BEFORE WE BLAST YOU INTO BITS!
RexthePranksterPrince: AND DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT- wait what am I doing?
BextheBest: Rex you moron, you ruined it!
LextheSnowKing: How are we supposed to scare people and get them to listen to us if you WON'T EVEN SAY YOUR LINES!
RexthePranksterPrince: This is ridiculous, there are other ways to achieve world domination.
BextheBest: AT LEAST APOLOGIZE YOU MORON!
RexthePranksterPrince: No. No I won't.
LextheSnowKing: All the time, all the thought, all the effort we put into it, and then YOU DON'T EVEN SAY YOUR LINES and now you have the nerve to NOT EVEN APOLOGIZE FOR IT!
WaltDizznee: Will you all just shut-
BextheBest: No we won't Dex. Now if you'll excuse us WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF AN ARGUMENT!
TheTriplets: Proceed Yelling.
ChandelierHead: How long until they notice we're all standing here?
WaltDizznee: Usually they don't, we just leave them there, go inside the house, lock all doors, and leave them outside.
KeslerDizznee: They'll stop in 3
JulineDizznee: QUIET! ALL OF YOU!
KeslerDizznee: told you so.
JulineDizznee: Fitz here, has so kindly volunteered to watch you three for the day, while your father, brother and I go restore our sanity. So all of you be on your best behavior.
KeslerDizznee: Which means try not to blow anything up, and stop trying to attempt world domination.
WaltDizznee: Ok, we've wasted enough time. BYE GUYS! I WON'T MISS YOU AT ALL. COME ON MOM AND DAD LET'S GO DO ALL THE ONLY CHILD THINGS I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO!
JulineDizznee: bye kids! Don't blow up the house!

BextheBest: LET'S GO BLOW UP DEX'S ROOM!
ChandelierHead: Guys your parents said not to do that.
RexthePranksterPrince: We can raid his prattles stash first.
LextheSnowKing: Hush Ritz, after that we can come up with another attempt at world domination.
RexthePranksterPrince: Oh, we could slip mind controlling elixirs in peoples food. I'm sure we have a stash somewhere.
BextheBest: Genius. But first, let's go blow up Dex's room.
LextheSnowKing: But what about Ritz?
ChandelierHead: Actually my name's-
BextheBest: We can tie him up or something, come on we've got a world to take over.

ChandelierHead: Somebody, anybody help me please.
Tell me what you think! What was your favorite part? Also comment if you want me to ping you.
Before Councillor Bronte switched over to "Sophie's side", Sophie and her friends hated him, and I've seen a whole lot of people on this wiki hate him as well. But the minute he decided Sophie was "competent" (not) and worth his vote, he turned to her and everyone liked him with few reservations. My problem is why is everyone who dislikes Sophie disliked.
You're telling me that a girl with Elvin ancestry and genetics (and horse ones too) grew up in the Forbidden Cities, with a species that are the "enemies" of the Lost Cities and they shouldn't have any reservations about her!? That makes no sense. If I were a councilor, I would definitely have hesitations of letting her be a normal citizen right away. So why was Bronte so hated? That's really unfair to someone who's job is to protect the nation.
Why was Councillor Alina so hated too? Sure she's more ruthless than the rest of the councilors, but she has really good, considerable points. I've seen people say that the reason they don't like her is because she had a total personality change from Dame to councilor. Of course she would. As principal, she would have to be welcoming of all students and respect the Council's decision to let her in. But as a councilor, she has a vote. She can be more free with her opinions. And Sophie is a whole lot of trouble. So much unneeded trouble. Sure, she "opened" everyone to everything wrong about the Lost Cities, but she never did anything about it. I agree with Councillor Alina for the most part. She could be nicer, but she too is fed up and I understand that. There's only so much one person can take. Everyone's all too lenient with Sophie, they can be a lot stricter with her. It's best for everyone.
And the Hekses. Gosh, Sophie is such a jerk. There are plenty of lines in the books where she says she enjoys hearing the Hekses scream at teleportation because they have reservations on her. Geesh, you laugh at Stina when she walks in bald without ever considering that what Dex did was snobby (Sophie didn't know about their ongoing feud at the time) and expect them to like you. Not to mention that calling you a threat to the nation isn't far from the truth. It is the truth!
I won't even get started on Lady Cadence, that woman knows that she needs to keep a distance from Sophie and I would do the same.
Just cause every boy in the school fell for you doesn't mean everyone likes you. Live with it. A lot of good reasons are out there.
Speaking of which, why does Sophie have every boy swooning on her. Is no one suspicious of her? I'm not saying that being nice is the problem, no. Just that everyone has a crush on her and it's so unrealistic!! It adds to the Mary Sue theme where this girl is so self conscious of herself and has self doubts even though every boy likes her and there are OBVIOUS (yes, even for Sophie) hints.
Like either people dislike her for good reasons and they get hate for no reason or people like her immediately and there's not a good enough reason to.
TW for mentions of sexual assault
There’s a group of men who claim to be making April 24th “National R*pe Day.” I want everyone here to be aware of this. Although it’s unlikely these people will go through with it, there will be some idiots who actually try to attempt to sexually assault people. Please try to avoid going out that day, and if you do, try not to go alone and have some form of self-defense on you, like pepper spray, a pocket knife, etc.
Stay safe, everyone, and tell everyone you know about it. Share it on social media, tell your friends and family, whatever. Let people know about it so they can help themselves and others prevent themselves from harm.
Keefe sat on a chair in the back of a place humans called a restaurant.
“You’re up.” The voice came from his boss, a gruff but kind chef who let him work there in exchange for food and a place to sleep. Keefe nodded, and walked out into the restaurant, ready to clean-his job was to clean off the tables-when he saw a brown-haired person who was wearing iridescent glasses. Too late, he realized he should have hid.
“Keefe?” Elwin asked. “You’re safe!” Keefe ducked behind the curtain, but Elwin saw him, and followed him in.
“We’ve been looking for you since you left! Sophie’s heartbroken, Fitz has smashed all his stuff, and Dex hasn’t left the house.” At the mention of Sophie, Keefe’s heart sped up.
“Are they okay?” Keefe clapped his hands over his mouth. He’d said stuff before, and it was fine, since he’d gotten control since moving here. However, if Elwin knew he had control, he’d force him to come back, and he didn’t want that.
“They’d be better if you came back, Keefe.” Elwin ushered him out into the street. “Come on, Keefe. They need you. Sophie needs you.” That last sentence ended his resistance, and Keefe sighed, remembering what Grady said.
“Okay,” he whispered. “As long as you don’t let me live with my dad.” Elwin smiled.
“I think that can be arranged.” Elwin took Keefe’s hand. “Let’s find a quieter spot to leap away.” He led Keefe through the streets, finally finding a deserted alley to leap from. Keefe let go of Elwin’s hand for a second, and turned around to make sure nobody was around. As he did so, his ankle slid, and he fell.
“Ow!” He tried to get up, but fell down again.
Elwin knelt next to Keefe, grabbing his shoulder and lifting his crystal to the light.
♡ ♡ ♡
They glittered into existence at Elwin’s house, Splendor Plains. Elwin carried Keefe into the house, and laid him on a couch.
“Just wait here.” He ran upstairs and came down again within five minutes, now carrying various elixirs. He snapped his fingers, and a ball of light formed around Keefe’s entire body. He frowned.
“Keefe, you’ve got a really bad ankle sprain. You’ll be on bed rest for about 2 weeks-annoying as that is,” Elwin explained.
♡ ♡ ♡
It was two weeks later, and Keefe was still at Splendor Plains. He was doing the ankle exercises that Elwin showed him when Elwin walked through the door, returning from a meeting with the Council. He’d been having a lot of those, along with meeting with the gnomes very often, and seemed to always be happy.
“Where wi-” He was cut off when Sophie burst through the door.
“Keefe, I’m so happy for you!” Keefe blinked, totally confused.
“Why are you happy that I can barely walk?” he asked in a teasing tone, having gotten back to his normal self entirely because of Elwin.
“Not that!” Sophie exclaimed, turning to Elwin. “You haven’t told him yet?”
“I was about to, Sophie,” Elwin answered, turning to Keefe. “Keefe, the Council approved it, and you can live with me, if you want to.”
Keefe blinked slowly. “I-”
“It’s fine if you don’t,” Elwin assured.
“I do.” Those two words broke the last of the shadows from his ability.
Elwin smiled. “I hoped so. You have a room, and the gnomes made you an entirely new wardrobe-I figured you wouldn’t want anything from your dad.”
Keefe teared up. He’d never thought he’d end up with someone who cared as much as Elwin.
Anyone else feel very called out by this?
But those two random glitter nails annoy me. They destroy the continuity of the other ones.
That’s the post.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
So, I thought of this when I saw another post about the elvin adoption system. Okay, so the relevant definition of abuse is, "language that condemns or vilifies usually unjustly, intemperately, and angrily", which describes Keefe's father in a nutshell in terms of how he talks to his son. For the most part. Anyway, we've established that Cassius is abusive toward Keefe. And Gisela, well......I think that's self-explanatory. Now, if a child has an abusive family, they get adopted by another family, yes? And Wylie and Sophie were adopted, so there is probably some system, no matter how small-it's there. So I HC that Keefe gets adopted by the Ruewens and he and Sophie are siblings. I have an OC who's Jolie's twin, and she was sent away to live in the Sanctuary-anyway, she convinces the Council to let Grady and Edaline adopt Keefe. I find this perfect and just...right. I want this to happen.
-Elwin secretly adopted, Keefe, and they're waiting for the right time to tell Lord Cassius (credit CorretaDIzzine)
-Wylie is secretly a ballerina and has been training his whole life that's why we barely see him
-Linh is a dolphin in disguises
-Tam secretly is a ~soft boy~ who loves fluffy clouds you just have to melt away all that s a v a g n e s s
How does Sophie only listen to her music like one time after going to the lost cities?
Shes been through how much trauma? And you’re telling me she only listened to her music once? Like??
Lol couldn’t be me, music is my coping mechanism 🤚
Have you guys ever just mouthed during a song? cMoN bE hOneSt-
Appreciation post about how music can help when you're down, make you feel confident, and make you more empathetic. Music is just amazing guys. Also what's your current happy song? It doesn't have to be happy exactly but what song currently makes you feel at your best? Mine is currently No Control by One Direction, I'm not sure why but it just makes me feel HAPPY and CONFIDENT and that's what really matters.
I guess what I'm saying is as long as something makes you feel happy and it's not hurting anyone just GO for it dude. There's nothing holding you back but your own inhibitions. So go play your favorite song and get pumped up and go climb your mountains, and dance the whole way.
I don't know what came over me, I just feel very empowered and confident and motivated and I want you guys to as well because you're all so amazing and I love you all so much. (Totally platonically of course XD.)
Ro is gonna die or is that just me
Cause I reallllly feel like she will for some reason-
I am so tired of KotLC. The series has gone way over the amount of time it needed and with every book one question is answered and about 5 more pop up. And I feel like the books are starting to decrease in quality. The first four books were pretty good but it kinda went downhill after that. I really enjoyed the books because of the adventure and the side characters with personality. Now it has turned into more of a love triangle that has no end. The characters that I loved were mostly cut off from the books. Personally I loved Biana and Marella and now they aren't even there anymore. Don't get me wrong I love it but I am also getting sick of it.
WHAT HAPPENED WHY ARE WE ALL SUDDENLY SO MATURE-
STOP THIS MONSTROSITY THIS INSTANT
This description IS NOT fitz (there be some bashing afoot)
This is not me at all, lol (except for the grades thing) I don't know how I ever got this answer XD
