Declan Lynch: In Which Having Nothing To Say Speaks Volumes

faerielament:

Declan waited a second too long to speak, and Ronan crossed his arms over his chest. “You’ve got quite the guy there, Ashley. You’ll have a great night with him and then some other girl can have a great night with him tomorrow.”

[…]

"My brother is—" said Declan. But he didn’t finish. There wasn’t anything he could say that Ronan hadn’t already proven. He said, "We’re going now. Ronan, I think you need to reconsider your—" But again, he had no words to end the sentence.

I’m sure we all remember this scene: Ronan tells Ashley that Declan sleeps around and Declan struggles to come up with a reply.

Declan’s speechlessness says a lot. Of course, it validates the truth of Ronan’s statement, but it also could hold a lot more meaning.

If we look into it with another set of lens, him sleeping around isn’t the only reason why Declan can’t come up with something to say.

From what can only be inferred from the books, Declan grew up not having much of a home in the Barns and feeling unloved by the majority of his family. Feeling homeless and loveless is a lonely combination, a poignant thorn in the side that will either continue to ache as Declan grows older—or a thorn to be taken out.

Perhaps having lots of sex is one of Declan’s methods of trying to take that thorn out (or numbing the pain): Partaking in frequent doses of temporary connection when he finds that—even with all the people he surrounds himself with—he can’t really make the deep kind of connections that he wants, because he never really knew how to in the first place and no one ever connected with him.

(After Declan leaves with Ashley, Gansey even calls him a “man-whore”. If Gansey is aware of Declan’s activities, then that should be a sign of how often and prominent it is that Declan sleeps around.)

Having those kinds of feelings inside of you and then hearing it bluntly being passed off as nothing but "oh the usual: Declan being a bastard like always" is not only capable of robbing someone of their speech, but making a person feel empty. And when you feel empty, there’s nothing there, nothing to say, because words can’t even begin to explain the whole scope of things.

And the way Ronan phrased his words,

"You’ll have a great night with him and then some other girl can have a great night with him tomorrow."

Not "He’ll have a great night with you and then he’ll have a great night with some other girl tomorrow."

By doing so, Ronan is objectifying Declan to nothing more than a toy that’s passed around and that anyone can play with. At this point, Declan isn’t even a living, breathing individual with his own thoughts and feelings. Being dehumanized in that way by your own brother is going to hurt a lot.

Hence, another reason for Declan’s speechlessness and another reason why Declan Lynch makes me sad.

"But how," said Charles, who was close to tears, "how can you possibly justify cold-blooded murder?”

Ne l’attends pas, elle rentrera trop tard
ferme les yeux, rassure-toi
tu la reverras

même de loin, elle te suit pas à pas
tu manqueras de rien
tu sais bien, elle est toute à toi

hors de ces murs
elle s’ennuie déjà
elle s’élance
au bout d’un fil de soie
la nuit qui avance
te la ramènera

tu la suis partout
mais quand elle franchit la porte
tu deviens jaloux
des étoiles qui l’escortent

tu crois toujours
que le diable l’emporte
alors tu croises les doigts
en priant qu’elle ne sorte pas

hors de ces murs
elle s’ennuie déjà
elle s’élance
au bout d’un fil de soie
la nuit qui avance
te la ramènera
