kaz kaz kaz

Kaz: Inej, I need you to pay special attention to Pekka Rollins, you must follow his every move, I need to know his every fault, every weakness - every odd habit.

Inej: k

[later that day]

Inej: *following Pekka Rollins through bustling streets of the barrel*

Pekka: *under his breath* they see me, Rollins. (dundun) They hatin’

Inej: What the Fuck

okay, idk what they’re playing maybe a card game or something idk just some sort of competition

nina is super competitive and if she doesn’t win she’s the biggest sore loser there is. even tho it’s against the rules, she forces inej to team up with so it’s guaranteed that they win bc who could beat the waith and a grisha put together??? (no one) and when she does win she starts gloating and laughing at what losers everyone else is as she dances around the room with inej (jes did try to team up with wylan but wylan refused since jesper has such a terrible poker face and wylan wanted at least a chance of winning)

inej tries to be humble and modest but she just can’t manage it bc of nina and she finds herself laughing and smiling uncontrollably. she doesn’t necessarily gloat, but she does point out everyone else lost which makes everyone else losers. nina keeps spinning her around and she’s starting to get dizzy but she doesn’t care bc why would she want to stop

matthias forgets about losing all of his kruge bc for some reason he let nina make him bet all the money he had on this game bc all he can focus on is nina and how happy and beautiful she is. the gloating is annoying, but if it means seeing her so happy and joyful that she’s practically glowing he will gladly lose at any game and go through as much gloating as it takes if she can stay that way forever

wylan isn’t even surprised. i mean, you put the wraith and a grisha together what do you expect? he isn’t even mad about losing, nina and inej’s laughter is contagious and he finds himself laughing and clapping along to them dancing

jesper’s used to losing so he pays no attention to nina’s gloating. besides, all he could focus on was on during the game was wylan and how good his poker face was. like how? was it bc of the years he tried lying to his father about reading? or was he born with this ability? either way, jesper has to ask him how he managed to keep such a straight face but he’s too caught up in staring at wylan’s face bc his smile is so cute and he’s clapping like a three year old would and it just does jesper in

and kaz is sitting there, rolling his eyes as if he hates the rowdiness of it all but he secretly loves it (besides he knew this would happen the second nina and inej teamed up despite jesper’s protests that teams are against the rules) bc he’s kaz fucking brekker. he controls the game or he doesn’t play and he was hoping to see that surprised look on inej’s face when she won, the look he can never seem to get enough of but that smile and oh god that laugh is so much better. he could sit there all night looking and listening to her without ever getting sick of it but instead he tells them all to get some rest bc they have a job tomorrow that they need to get done

but none of them go to bed, not even kaz. nina finally lets go of inej and nina finds her way beside matthias and inej sits back down in her chair. they all sit there, none of them speaking bc it isn’t needed. they just exchange happy looks and let this night, one night where they’re all kids just having fun, not thugs or thieves or soldiers or runaways, never end

Ghost Crows

Jesper knocked his head against the hull and cast his eyes heavenward. “Fine. But if Pekka Rollins kills us all, I’m going to get Wylan’s ghost to teach my ghost how to play the flute so that I can annoy the hell out of your ghost.”

Brekker’s lips quirked. “I’ll just hire Matthias’ ghost to kick your ghost’s ass.”

My ghost wont associate with your ghost,” Matthias said primly, and then wondered if the sea air was rotting his brain.

Yuri Plisetsky Week Day 1: Birthday

“When it’s one of them, it’s fine, but as soon as the other walks in, they light up and their ages seem to drop by 30 years. It’s like the difference between having one puppy in a room and having two puppies in a room – like it really is, they increase exponentially.”
