murderous crows

@hamelin-born I wrote a thing. 

Trevor is done

The castle, his father’s castle and isn’t that a weird thing to think about, towers above him for the seventh time that week; he has been counting. He groans, placing the dead deer more firmly on his shoulder. Clearly, Destiny wants him to enter the castle. 

He doesn’t want to. It’s late. The sun is setting, the air growing colder and he really regrets not wearing a shirt. This coat does not keep him warm at all.

“You win,” he mutters to the sky and walks up to the castle gates. 

He knocks with a gloved fist and the bang sends a startled murder of crows into flight. The gates open quickly, as if the castle had been expecting him; it probably had. 

He walked in and through the empty halls. He frowned as he steps echoed. The Brotherhood had said his father was a vampire lord scheming to take over the world; there should be demons wandering about, especially this close to sunset. Already, he could feel the sun’s light vanish from the earth. 

Eventually, the hallways converged in front of a large door, embedded with dragons. How very dramatic. The deer on his shoulder felt heavy and he shifted it again, raising his fist to knock. Hopefully, this would be over quickly. 

The doors swung open, just a small crack. It was enough for him to slip through. 

Dracul stared at him, bored and the first thing he thought upon seeing his father’s outfit was oh, that’s where I got it from.

Kaz Brekker will do anything out of spite. Nina says he can’t possibly pull off a dress and heels. The next day he shows up in blood red heels and a black dress and the entire crew shits themselves. Pekka Rollins tells him he can’t possibly wear a top hat. He shows up at Rollins’ house with a top hat and a knife. Jesper says he can’t flirt, that night he charms the pants off of half of the people in crow club. Wylan regrets ever bringing up Kaz in a flower crown.

Honestly, I fucking adore the fact that the fandom calls out Kaz “Bastard of the Barrel” Brekker for being such an over dramatic child, with his extra™ brooding and overcompensating gestures, but can we all just focus on how every line Inej delivers becomes a defining moment™. Just a few instances :

-“I will have you without armour, Kaz Brekker. Or I will not have you at all.”
-“I owe you a life debt.”
- “Mmm, maybe you’re just not enough.”
-“The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to fall true.”
-“Men mock Gods until they need them, Kaz.”
-“Say you’re sorry” ( WHILE SHE’S BLEEDING TO DEATH???)
- “We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. We learn to wring magic from the ordinary.That was how you survived when you weren’t chosen, when there was no royal blood in your veins. When the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway.”
-“It was because she was listening so closely that she knew the exact moment when Kaz Brekker, Dirtyhands, the bastard of the Barrel and deadliest boy in Ketterdam, fainted.”
-“You still may die in the Dregs.“ Inej’s dark eyes had glinted. “I may. But I’ll die on my feet with a knife in my hand.”
-“She was Inej Ghafa, and she would not quiver like a rabbit in a snare.”

Our Wraith Queen is basically a low-key drama queen (complementing King Dirtyhands and his melodramatic ass perfectly ofc) and high-key iconic badass…
