One of my favorite Perc’ahlia moments
Briarwood Arc. Percy is teasing Vax about his “act first, think later” mentality, specifically referring to Vax charging in alone to save Cassandra.
Vax: He had a knife to your sister’s throat, and I would hope that you would do the same for mine.
Percy, sobering up immediately: Yes.
Vex: He would, of course he would!
Then, as Vax continues explaining himself, Percy and Vex have their own quiet conversation in the background.
Percy, smirking slightly: …But only because I fear her.
Vex, scandalized, but unable to keep the smile off her face: I’m not scary!
Percy, meeting her smile with a softer one of his own: Yes, you are.
