i like thinking about little things lucretia didn’t think to erase.
Julia asks how Magnus celebrated Candlenights as a kid, and he says, “Actually I’m surprised it’s apparently so universal, because I’d never heard of it before I came to Raven’s Roost!” And he says the name of a holiday Julia doesn’t recognize, and she asks where on earth he’s from. He can name his street, but for some reason, not his city.
Taako’s trying to prepare the ingredients for a meal on his show. He’s arguing with a salesman. I’m Taako from TV, he says, you can show me the secret merch. And the salesman says, sir, I told you I don’t know what the fuck cheese is, please leave.
Davenport remembers his birthday but he never brings it to attention. He doesn’t like to. He feels like he lost something important the last time it mattered, so he decides it doesn’t really matter. He’s content with his job and with the friendly cards lucretia writes every year, just 2 days off the mark (he never corrects her).
The first time Merle sees Taako in the tavern, he thinks, this guy’s got the face of a magic user. And when said wizard turns a table to beef, he feels less smug than he usually does when he gets something right. It just feels obvious.
Lucretia talks with Merle over ginkgo tea one evening. He tells her it always surprises him how authoritative she is, because she comes off as a really reserved person. “And– I don’t mean that just ‘cause you’re a woman! It’s something about your face, I think.” Lucretia assures him that no, she gets that a lot. (She’s never been told that by anyone from this world.)
