It’s a warm night. Probably the warmest yet, this year. But, then again, it’s only just now really getting into summer.

“Damien’s hanging out in the graveyard again.”

I look over at Robert who’s peering down at the city through his binoculars. I smirk at him a little even though I know he can’t see me.

“You are so obsessed with him, lately.”

“I think he’s a vampire. 99% certain.” He scans the city some more. Not totally sure what he’s looking for, but he’ll tell me when he finds it.

“I’ll just text Mary. ‘Hey. Is your brother a vampire?’”

“She’s a vampire, too, obviously. Undead siblings wandering the night, seducing young men. Taking them back to their lair where they feed on them for sustenance, draining their body dry. Then they bathe in their blood and offer them up as sacrifices to their dark lord.”

“Wouldn’t they need to bathe in their victim’s blood before draining them dry?”

“How dare you expect internal consistency in my conspiracy theories.” Robert lowers his binoculars. “What did you manage to come up with?”

I turn my hands out to show him my shapely hunk of wood. It’s still pretty chunky and malformed, but it actually resembles a panda.

“Adorable,” he says flatly. He pulls a flask from inside his jacket and takes a big ol’ gulp. It’s not booze. Soda, probably. Maybe sweet tea.

At first he just started cutting back, and was doing a pretty good job of stopping after one or two glasses. The smoking began falling off, too, soon after. Then he started taking anti-depressants, and he took the recommendations not to drink while on them very seriously. There are still bad days where he’ll feed the dog and water his plant like usual but forget to eat himself. They’re becoming less and less though, and every day things are a little better. A little easier. A little more manageable. I’m very proud of where he’s brought himself.

“I talked to Val. She said Amanda’s doing really well at that summer job she got her. Like a fish to water.”

“Yeah. I was a little nervous about letting her go live in the big city, but Val offering her extra room helped. That was really nice of them.”

“Desiree’s coming with her when she brings Amanda back.” Robert looks down at his thumb as it fiddles with the knob that changes the focus of the lenses.

“This’ll be the first time you’ve mey her, right?”

“Yep.”

The sounds of the night creep in and around us, settling into place. He brings the binoculars back up to his eyes. After a minute, he hits me in the arm a little.

“Roll out. The mission is a go.” He hops down out of the tailgate of the truck and heads to the driver’s side.

Keep reading

When you’re supposed to be asleep, but you keep saying ‘one more chapter’ and 'I’ll just get to the end of the mat section’ and every chapter seems to be a mat chapter so you make the decision to read just one more BUT THEN THE LETTER HAPPENS and the next chapter is still a mat chapter and you have no self control. Holy shit holy shit holy shiiiiit

Finished WoT: Knife of Dreams

I’m dying imagining Rand when he meets up with Perrin and Mat again

Mat and Perrin: Rand, blood and ashes, where’s your HAND

Rand: Yeah, Semirhage blasted it off when I tried to make an alliance with the Seanchan… Nbd but I still gotta figure out this alliance thing

Perrin: Uh… I may have allied with thousands of Seanchan to rescue Faile… Also, you’re welcome for annihilating the Shaido?

Mat: *shifty eyes* I uh… kindamaybemarriedthefutureEmpress so… there’s also that

Rand: *head a splode*

Rand.
Rand that’s not the Daughter of the Nine Moons that’s impossible.

Fuck I knew it it’s probably Semirhage. Rand pls go.

RAND. SHE FLICKERED. LEAAAVVEEEE

SEMIRHAGE. FAK.

SHIT SHIT

OH. OHHHH.

heh, guess now Rand needs to SINGLE-HANDEDLY defeat the Dark One!

Ok ok bad time

Spoilers for Knife of Dreams ahead (sorry chachamaru43)

I think the most badass thing Rand did in the entire series was when he lost his hand. I mean he thought he was meeting Tuon, instead he ran into a surprise Forsaken, he tries to seize Saidin, fails, fireball is coming at him and Min is right behind him. What does he do? He doesn’t move an inch. It wasn’t even a hard decision, he couldn’t let it hit Min, he just raises his hand holding the Dragon Scepter and stays put. Also, I know it’s more likely that he was shielding his face but I have this headcanon that he was actually trying to stab the fireball, he’s enough of a woolhead to do it.

And then moments later, Min does one of the most badass things she did in the entire series. We don’t see much of the ensuing battle because Rand blacked out and the chapter was from his POV, but when he could finally stand again he saw one of Min’s daggers stuck in Semirhage. So there is Min, she was going with Rand to Meet Tuon, instead they run into a surprise Forsaken who hits Rand with a fireball, The Dragon Reborn goes down, what does she do? Does she run and hide? No she pulls out a knife and fucking throw it at Semirhage. And we all know she probably stood in front of him to shield him from anymore fireballs.
