thehalfbreedqueen: My level of feels toward your tags on the Queen Beth pic has no end
girlfriend, don’t get me started. Not to say Ward doesn’t love her female characters or treats them poorly. But damn, give a girl a purpose that affects the main plot. (if there still is a “main arc”, tbh at this point, I can’t tell anymore lol)
If we’ve learned anything from series like Game of Thrones, even the physically weakest characters can fuck shit up.
This is how I picture Beth going off to battle the glymera. Head held high, gaze unwavering, she doesn’t need to be armed to the teeth to make them cower in their seats; her confidence leaves no room for confusion. She’s making sure they know damn well who they’re gonna have to deal with if they try to overthrow her hellren. This is Queen Beth.

I will not fall in love with you,” she said. “I can’t let myself. I won’t.”
"That’s all right. I’ll love you enough for the both of us.”
…. Alex came through the door he’d put to use. “My office. Right now.”
Alex parked it behind her desk. “Here’s what we’re going to do. We’re giving you a couple of nights off.”
He looked up. “That’s ridiculous. I’m—”
Alex cupped her hand by her ear. “Not going to argue with me? Fantastic. Good choice.”
Duke scrubbed his face so he didn’t start yelling and thereby prove her damn point. “I don’t need—”
“To waste either of our time trying to convince me otherwise? Man, you are getting so smart. I really respect where you’re at.”
Abruptly, she picked up the one living thing in the room: a small plant in a green-colored plastic pot.
“You see this?” she said. “You know who gave it to me? A nice guy named Detective de la Cruz. He paid me a visit here a little while ago, and you wanna know whose health plan he’s on? The CPD’s. Again, nice guy. But I didn’t want this fucking plant, and I reallllly don’t want him to come back—most certainly not because we had bodily damage of a permanent variety happen in one of my fucking bathrooms by one of my cocksucking bouncers.”
Alex Hess a.k.a Xhexania, being The Boss…
crossover in the FA series by J.R.Ward
Ps: De la Cruz is still trying make Xhex care for a plant… I bet John Matthew will end up being the one taking care of it, because we know Xhex isn´t good with that stuff :P

redpantsofdoom: Hey boo... is Possession the only book that BDB peeps show up? And also do you think I can read only that one?
Hey hey! A few of our favorite faces have shown up in the previous books, but none as big of a cameo as Xhex’s. I could be wrong? I’ve only read the 1st book and skimmed through Possession. Personally, I couldn’t get into the series, but lots of people like it!
iirc, Phury and Butch make a small cameo in the 1st book. There were mentions of Marie-Terese and Lassiter in another. And in the third book, Throe makes appearance.
If you aren’t easily bothered by not knowing *everything* that’s going on, give it a try. You might end up liking it and go back to start of the series. (it happened with me and BDB! I started with Z’s book haha)
Anonymous: Love the John and Xhex graphic, the tenderness makes me all warm and fuzzy inside
That one’s not made by me! Reblogged from lyyannastark :)
Isn’t though? And it looks like Xhex is spooning John.
