23 People Who Were NOT Prepared for Wildcard

*This post is spoiler-free!*


Sometime around last year, Marie Lu tore out our hearts, blew our minds, kicked us in the feels, gave us hope, crushed that hope, kicked us in the feels again, and then called the whole extravaganza Warcross.


Naturally, we’re all pretty excited to let her do it again.


That’s right, friends. Wildcard has been released in the wild.


(^This kid is basically all of us in a bookstore)


Now, some readers handled the new release pretty well.


Others…not so much



Some have even taken it upon themselves to warn others.

Warning Joke


Because your heart may not recover



Or your ability to form words for that matter

I’m done now. IN CASE YOU DIDNT KNOW WILDCARD IS OUT IN THE WILD TODAY AND AHHHH YOU SHOULD GET A COPY IF YOU DONT HAVE ONE ALREADY. Okay I’m chill now. I was lucky enough to read an arc of Wildcard and LET ME TELL YOU IT IS SO GOOD. I don’t know if you can tell how much I love love love this duology, it’s just wonderful and incredible and I love it. I’m going to have to make this a short caption, my phone’s battery is pretty broken(earlier it told me I had 3% and then I restarted it and now I have 19%) and also I have orchestra rehearsal! Btw my answer for the question is (aside from WILDCARD AHHHH) probably Queen of Air and Darkness ALL ARTISTS/VENDORS ARE TAGGED – – – – – #bookstagram #wildcard #marielu #blessmarielu #emikachen #warcross #iamthewildcard #hideotanaka

This all raised a question…is Marie Lu evil?

Marie Lu Evil


Unfortunately, the answer is probably not. Even if a few readers are getting a little eager about selling their souls to her.

And at least one person has threatened to run away with our beloved Hideo.


Let’s face it. Ya’ll KNEW what you were in for.


And recovery can take…a while.


But please find some time to sleep.


Like, honestly.


Please get some sleep.


Stay in school, kids.


And don’t feel bad. It even got to Sabaa. Her ice cream melted.
