Iconic™ Kaz Brekker Moments

-’Kaz was just glad he used the damn door.”

-“You can put him in a coffeepot for all I care.”

-”Even worse, if I fail, I don’t get paid.”

-”You might actually have had to uncurl that lip and treat me with something closer to respect.”

-Ripping Oomen’s eyeball out and shoving his handkerchief in the socket.

-”I’ll just hire Matthias’ ghost to kick your ghost’s ass.”

-”Hold the book up so we don’t have to look at your ugly face.” (Kaz, be nice to Jesper)

-Nina: “And I can tell you’ve never given enough thought to your haircut.”

Kaz: *runs a self-conscious hand through his hair*

(only Nina. Only Nina can make Kaz in to a seventeen year old, concerned about his haircut)

-”Jacob fucking Hertzoon”

-Talking tree jokes??????

-Matthias: “We go from aspirant to novice drüskelle in the ceremony at the sacred ash.”

Kaz: “Where the tree talks to you.”

-Kaz: “The Dregs need a better initiation (I’m over here wondering what the Dregs’ initiation is)”

Matthias: This is only one part of Hringkälla.”

Kaz: “Yes, I know, then the tree tells you the secret handshake.”

-”Of course you don’t [like speculation]. You like things you can see. Like piles of snow and benevolent tree gods.”

-Or you were dead wrong about Matthias and you’re going to pay for all those talking tree jokes

-’They blew up the lab. I definitely did not tell them to blow up the lab.’

Spoilers ahead (duh)

Every elemental kingdom is flawed. Candy people are too happy, fire people are too angry, ice people are too sad and slime people are too… mean?

LSP made everyone go back to who they truly are. She (much possibly) awoke The Lich inside Sweet P:

AND made Jake half-turn into a shapeshifter, like one of his dads:

I read Lear for class a few times, and now I'm rereading it bc the AP Lit exam is coming up. Is it just me, or is the language harder to understand than that of Shakespeare's other plays? It could just be because I'm delving more deeply into it, but I saw the tempest a few weeks ago and I felt like I understood the words with less effort, even though I'm less familiar with it.

Lear is an incredibly difficult play. It’s a play full of negation and contradiction and because there are a few different versions of the text and editors tend to mash them together with abandon, it’s even more difficult to follow than most. “Labyrinthine” is the best word I can think to describe it. It’s a rabbit hole of a play. It’s a linguistic mind-fuck. (My favorite example of this is the Fool’s speech in 3.2 in the Folio, which just literally doesn’t make any logical sense. It’s consciously anachronistic and textually bizarre; 400 years later we still have no idea what’s going on there; more on it here.) So I definitely don’t think you’re imagining this. It’s a crazy play.
