Can I just take a moment to say I really like the way that Tamora Pierce wrote Jory and Nia? Like, I feel like in fiction twins are portrayed as
1. complete and utter opposites in every way or
2. superduper identical in every way/sharing thoughts/finishing each other’s sentences/etc.
but Tamora Pierce portrayed them the way I’m used to seeing twins (aka my younger brother’s), a little bit alike, and a little bit opposite, with their own personalities, but some shared traits too
and I guess it may seem like such a little thing, but I really liked it.
