junai dodeka

Tamora Pierce confession

so i just finished rereading the Trickster’s series and i gotta say, I’m still bitter that Junai’s death was reduced to a one sentence passing remark….. for as much of a role as she played she deserved at least as much time spent on her death as Ulsaim or Ochobu’s….. not to be thrown in with the other minor characters of Aly’s pack. I wanted a paragraph describing the fight, details of how she used her bladed staff Aly always commented on, to see her go down fighting….. not just an “oh hey yeah, Junai was also one of the people killed in the fighting”
