everybody wants to rule the world
“She WHAT?” Sophie shrieked.
“Teddy said she almost smiled!” Dot replied, resting her chin in her hands like a gossiping schoolgirl.
“Agatha? SMILING?” Sophie shrieked again. The scream echoed through the marble hallway. Dot shushed her. “She h…[Read more]
I would appreciate it if you didn’t talk about me behind my back on Tumblr especially after I explained I’m not Evie.
If you still think I am, that’s fine, that’s your opinion, but maybe think about the consequences of your actions next time, you really hurt my feelings last night when I was looking up “The meltdown of the SGE website” and found…[Read more]
Plus, I believe I’ve been kind and unproblematic since I arrived, what do you have against me?
i have absolutely nothing against you, and i truly don’t think you’re evie anymore. those were a combination of the craziness of the time and me just not wanting any more drama. i have a lot of prior experience with big meltdowns and lots of drama and i was a bit exhausted at the time. however, as you can see i don’t mention it anymore on tumblr…[Read more]
Thank you! I understand, drama can Make people feel very pressured to justify themselves!
🙂 most of my posts were all in good fun anyway, i thought it was a pretty crazy situation. do you have a tumblr or were you just viewing as an anonymous? tumblr sge is pretty fun and it’s great for textposts! (trying to shift convo to sge so we don’t get in trouble lol)
No, I’m not allowed it because once I made an account and was immediately messaged by accounts spamming me with links to… shall I say… Students after they morgrify
everybody wants to rule the world
The door to the office was made of mahogany. It was carved with spiraling designs of daylilies and ferns, etched with the utmost care. Tedros ran his fingers across the notches in the wood and took a deep breath before going to pull open the door…[Read more]
“he was going to fail, and he was going to do it well” —> this is such a big mood oml hahahah. and aaaa you really did well on refining agatha’s personality at the start aha especially describing her attire, i can totally imagine her wearing all of that if she was in charge of a company ahah and oml tedros not knowing what to get so instead…[Read more]
everybody wants to rule the world
The building Tedros was looking for was almost comically tall. He was shocked he missed it, but that was the issue with Apple Maps. It would have you traveling the same five square miles for hours, circling the one place you needed to go to before actually finally landing you there. He…[Read more]
dang, tag meeee – this is amazingggg – and i love ur writing style too! it flows so well 🙂 and i love the modern concept behind it ehe it’s such a good idea omg – oop, can’t wait to read into agatha and tedros’s interaction aha and omg, that final sentence wrapped it all up in such a perfect way aha
hey guys! i’ve finally decided to start writing my own fanfiction on here! it’s a modern tagatha au with mysteries and fraud and house fires and sort of enemies to lovers??? (but not really).
the mysterious agatha wardwell owns a pharmaceutical company devoted to driving down the costs of prescription drugs for the poor. her adoptive sister…[Read more]
hopefully this makes sense! please please please comment if you need me to clarify something. i worked for a long time on this rebuttal and it’s sort of all jumbled in my head. also, the quote used that doesn’t use page numbers in its citation was taken from an e-book because i didn’t have access to my paper copy at the time, but i still included…[Read more]
i spent like an hour and a half on it! i’m excited to see you respond to each of my points.
Needless to say, I agree with this – I know that due to the nature of a lot of YA books, many readers seem to either not recognise or romanticise the many abu.sive traits in Rophie’s relationship, but that really isn’t an excuse once it’s been pointed out so many times. There’s a reason Sophie is afraid of Rafal returning in TCY. There’s a reason…[Read more]
i didn’t touch on that because i didn’t want to make this more than the THOUSAND PARAGRAPHS it already is, but you are so right. i’ll probably mention it if i need to make another long-form rebuttal because sophie is stated to be literally terrified of him coming back. it’s for a reason. there’s far too much romanticism of abu.se in YA fiction,…[Read more]
Keep tagging! I find it interesting hearing about it from another POV, but I have to say that not every relationship is flawless. Rafal and Sophie had their problems, just like every other couple, but they loved each other and that’s all that matters
yeah, Rafal was using Sophie to push his agenda and I remember him pushing Sophie to receive the ring when she was clearly uncomfortable in the beginning of TLEA. And the age gap was weird too even though Rafal looked young, he still wasn’t a teenager. Rophie is abusive and whether is was one sided love or infatuation, it isn’t a healthy…[Read more]
unfortunately, unless our “debate club” rekindles i’ve put a pause on the rants for now. my rants got me into many…. situations :/ i’m glad you like them though! i rant quite a bit on my tumblr @/plushpinkfox 🙂 and if i think of any more topics, i might rant here again !!!!
battle of the briefcases begins tomorrow. i’ll be posting my (very, very long) rebuttal to the rophie part of your ships and stuff post before 4pm EST (got to check it over with a friend first). i’m not responding to the haric part yet, although i will at some point if someone reminds me. i’m really excited to share my evidence.…[Read more]
I want in! I’ve got a very, very, VERY long argument for Hophie.
lol, I’m probably going to spoe to watch this. (Hophie is the best in my opinion, but Rophie isnt too bad. Raphie, I dislike)
on the topic of ships in sge:
fedros is really uncomfortable for me tbh. we all know tophie is a bad ship (it just doesn’t work, sophie isn’t good for tedros and the other way around) so why do people ship fedros? the entire relationship was built on a LIE. sophie lied about who she was and it all would have fallen apart. people say they love it…[Read more]
tbh, I don’t ship Tophie (and barerly tolerate Tagatha) but I do ship Fedros. The whole built on a lie thing – was it that bad? (Tagatha is like love at first sight, they hardly ever spoke before Tedros asked her out at the Circus of Talents, and suddenly he’s her princess. Tophie was toxic, I agree)
I ship Fedros because of their friendship, and…[Read more]
the ship isn’t HORRIBLE to me, and i can see why it would happen. however, i never see anybody bring up the rooftop scene or the friendship between sophie and tedros. they only bring up how it makes tedros gay. and that feels wrong to me.
if filip was a real person then i’d have absolutely no issues with the ship because as you said it did have…[Read more]
and i do agree about the speed of tagatha getting together. there really should have been more development on that front and i don’t ship canon tagatha as much as fanon tagatha where they actually seem compatible and adorable
I HATE Tophie, I like Tagatha, I like Hophie I don’t really like Hicola and I don’t care about Fedros and Raphie. Don’t ask me why.
you do have a point! the circumstances allowed them to get to know each other better. and if filip was like, a real person, instead of sophie in disguise i’d probably ship this a little bit. but the problem is it’s literally all fake. this wasn’t sophie being her true self. this was sophie acting as filip. and that’s not a healthy relationship if…[Read more]
I actually started to ship Tophie after reading book two, and I still do today. Sounds, crazy, I know, but here’s why:
-Tedros approached Filip as a stranger, whom he thought he had never met before. This meant any of his previous assumptions and opinions of Sophie went out the window, giving the two of them a change for a fresh start, and e…[Read more]
hey y’all! here’s my ranking sge ships post! all my opinions 🙂 a tier is the best, f tier is the worst! pls comment your opinions down below 🙂
tagatha (tedros/agatha) – the quintessential sge couple!! i like their fanfiction and AU material better than the in-universe stuff soman wrote, but they’re adorable and great.
hestadil -…[Read more]
I think you mean Gremlaine, not Mommy Dearest . . . 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
Oh my God could anyone imagine Arthur & Gisela-🤣
AHHHH i didn’t even think of that but i thought lady gremlaine’s first name was gisela!! it’s actually grisella whoops
loool on the more serious side though, I still don’t like Hicola because I felt that Nicola and Hort never really loved each other. Nicola was like a fangirl for Hort, like loved him in the book,s, but when she met the real Hort he sort of just let her down. Also, it’s a teacher-student relationship which I just found really weird. I mean, I’m not…[Read more]
lol it’s good to know at least some ppl are joking abt rot!
yeah, i don’t LOVE hicola but i personally like it better than hophie
i like nicphie MUCH better
I agree with most of these, but I absolutely love Hophie, sorry. Also I don’t really ship Agaphie, they’re so much better as friends. Rot is fun to ship, but yeah, they would be a terrible couple. Still, I’m joining the rebellion. ROT, ROT, ROT, ROT! Anyways, besides, those, I agree with everything you said.
went looking to see if you’d posted this n was not expecting to get jumpscared by my username in the hestadil bit lol ty!! personally I would have put keian higher but it’s just bc I like messing with Rhian and his psyche he’s interesting!
this is so interesting! tag me for future ship reviews if there are any 🙂
i think it’s more about the lack of a wlw romance? people liked seeing two sword-bearing pirate girls in love. plus, not every ship has to have implications from the series. it helps, sure, but ships like beapeth and ariphie and haric exist without those scenes AND with scenes proving the ships shouldn’t exist. it’s just the will of the fandom,…[Read more]
hey y’all! it’s my first post in the last ever after forum and i’m seeing a LOT of raphie shippers so i thought i’d give my opinion on this ship before i do my big “reviewing sge ships” post on the one true king forum.
let’s give everyone a reminder of what rafal looks like! in the last ever after, he is described as a lean boy with “hairless…[Read more]
more unpopular takes/opinions on sge!!
my last one actually inspired another person to do the same and got tons of comments so i guess i’ll go at it again!
1. this one is DEFINITELY probably going to be unpopular but… fanon tedros is WAY better than canon tedros to me. same with fanon tagatha over canon tagatha. tedros is so sexist in the books…[Read more]
I agree with 1, 2, 5, 3, 6 and 7, lol! But 4; wasn’t Nicola just in the wrong school because her brothers filled in the form (inaccurately) for her, I think, if I remember correctly? And I personally think Sophie would be a better school master (if the new good dean was Beatrice or Kiko or somebody) than her too. Or at least Sophie could just lead…[Read more]
the handbook said that nicola’s best friend filled out her form! nicola just assumed it was her brothers since they wanted to run the pub. and i think that sophie leading for a while would be a good idea until nicola finished with school, but since the school itself couldn’t decide whether she was good or evil it seemed like a natural ending to…[Read more]
This was very interesting. I agree that Nicola was pretty much forgotten, but since (unpopular opinion) I never really liked her because she stood in the way of Hophie (not her fault, but still), I didn’t really care. And about Agatha being told to step away in TCY, I think it’s mostly because, as you said, it’s more about Tedros, but also becau…[Read more]
the thing is, sophie was fine alone then FOR NOW. i’m not saying she couldn’t have ever met someone in her position but she was so young and there was no reason she needed a partner RIGHT THEN. her arc throughout the books seemed to be setting her up for a teaching position as dean. like i said, she had her lunchtime lectures foreshadowing her…[Read more]
