You have to understand this about Thom of Trebond: he was the youngest living Master wizard, he rose the dead, he made enemies everywhere he went and didn’t care, but he was used for his power and he had a tragic downfall because of it.
But he loved Alanna. He loved his sister more than anything in the world, even if he didn’t always show it. He loved her when he hated everyone else.
idk this makes me tear up, how much he loved his twin. It means so much.
I’m sorry,” she said humbly. “I haven’t wanted to lie to you.”
“I should hope so. You’re the worst liar I’ve ever met.” He thought about it for a moment, then added, “–or the best. Now I’m all confused.
Alanna was cleaning Lightning in her room when Miles found her. “You didn’t kill him,” the knight said bluntly. “He would have killed you, but you didn’t kill him.”
Alanna’s arm was hurting: she hadn’t yet gotten the chance to place healing magic on herself. The pain made her short with her friend. “So? He was stupid. If I killed everyone who was stupid, I wouldn’t have time to sleep.”
Alanna is clearly a gryffindor. Brave, idealistic, fond of slaying literal and/or metaphorical monsters.
Daine is a ravenclaw. Curious, intellectually hungry, once stopped her heartbeat to listen to whales.
Kel is a hufflepuff. Loyal, hardworking, pragmatic. Mildly baffled when she gets recognition for doing something she considers her job.
Aly is a slytherin. Sly, clever, would never do something the normal way when she can do it a better way.
Beka is a little harder to pin down, but I think she’s a gryffindor at heart with hufflepuff methodology. She would like to be able to slay the world’s evils in one fell swoop, but knows she can’t. Instead she does her best to stop the small ones.
Petition for more Tamora Pierce merch! A darking stress ball! Daine’s claw necklace! A Pounce/Faithful stuffed animal! A hair dye that will get my hair the same blue as Aly’s! A jar of ears!
I’ll take it all!
