Flynn was born in the lap of luxury—a Founder’s son and heir to the Stark fortune. Of course, Molly hadn’t known that when she fell in love with the devilishly charming smuggler. If she’d known that Flynn was a Scraper back when she first met him, she probably would have hated him just on principle.Thoughts on By Hook or By Crook: I LOOOOOOVE this series. We have zombies of both the mindless flesh-eating and sentient variety. Which... AWESOME! We have airships and political maneuverings and those who live life on the edge down on the plains.
Molly was born in an outlaw camp, the daughter of a whore and a gambler. She was a street rat who didn’t belong in the glittering sky city where Flynn wanted to take her as a spy for the forts. She wasn’t ever going to turn into a lady, no matter how many fancy gowns Flynn dressed her in.
But maybe while they were there, she’d be able to talk Flynn into giving up on his plan of becoming a respectable businessman, and things could go back to the way they should be—her and Flynn raising hell, the scourge of the western skies. Blood didn’t have to be destiny, did it? And if Flynn could choose the future he wanted, then what was to stop her from doing the same?
And then we have the Scrapers. The glittering cities are nearly as dangerous as the Reapers for people like Molly who grew up doing whatever was necessary to survive.
Flynn and Molly. Molly and Flynn. Their relationship comes with a bit of baggage. Molly loves Flynn, but she can't see how a man born into luxury and a woman who grew up like she did could ever make things work. Heading up to the city only underscores how out of place Molly is in his world.
On the other hand, Flynn genuinely adores Molly. He wants to give her pretty things, but he doesn't try to change her and he never expects her to change the woman he fell in love with to fit into his world. That alone made me give a fist pump. In Flynn's eyes, if Molly is happy, Flynn is happy. <3 <3 <3
I can honestly say the more time I spend in this world, the more I like it. *slow thumbs up*
