The other day hit me with an old realization (bc hey i have bad memory)…. none of my interpretations of the trc characters will be what i see on screen??? Which is both exciting and terrifying?? Like this might be the first book i’ve read without knowing it’d get a show/movie so i’ve enjoyed it fully as a book. Hopefully I’ll enjoy it as a show too! But best of all is that I get to share this with my friends too?? And!! With y'all :] So thats awesome!
It’s time for a reference post about chevaliers and their legendary? infamous? code of honor. Quotes pulled from TME because Gaspard and Michel never shut up about it. As Gaspard says, “the code is meant to guide us to a path of glory, not restrict our tactics.”
The code of the chevaliers allowed for the use of surprise and tactical ambushes, contrary to the way foolish chevaliers acted in plays for the peasants. (76)
“When given direct challenge by a chevalier, I will answer without hesitation. I will not retreat without order from my commanding officer, and I will not kill a lord or lady outside the heat of battle unless it is a legal execution in the name of the empire.” (139)
Michel had no hidden weapons – the chevaliers trained warriors, not assassins. (76)
“Comte Pierre of Halamshiral is a lord of Orlais … My code prohibits his torture …. I will not torture him. I will not leave so that you may do so. If you lay a hand upon my prisoner, I will defend him with my life.” (156-7)
She very much doubted the code of honor about treatment of prisoners would apply to elven assassins. (133)
“He wasn’t a noble, Gaspard. Your code would not have applied.” (197)
“God I love you,” he gasped as he broke away for air.
Ladybug froze, her eyes widening in awe at his sudden declaration. Adrien was poised above her, his shirt hanging loosely off his shoulders, one arm holding his weight while the other hand ran lovingly through her hair. He looked at her with eyes full of pure adoration, as if she was the sun and moon and stars all wrapped together into one glorious being.
For all their months of stolen kisses and secret meetings, they had never put a name to their relationship. Never once had they put words behind the feelings that drove them together.
