moodboard: kaz brekker (six of crows)

“––when everyone knows you’re a monster, you needn’t waste time doing every monstrous thing”

Fake Dating AU Part 1/2 (Kanej)


  • Kaz sits at the local cafe, sipping his black coffee (no sugar of course) while he pores over the notes of the new criminal case he has to defend
  • when in barges a wild-eyed girl with hair falling haphazardly from her braid
  • she sees Kaz and immediately runs over to him smiling, but she whispers between clenched teeth: “Hold my hand.”
  • and Kaz just goes with it because the afternoon was getting boring anyway
  • and who knows when another person as pretty as her is going to talk to him again 
  • so he takes her hand and wow, her fingers are small and slight?? and how can her skin feel smoother than satin??
  • Jesper and Nina barge into the cafe, yelling for Inej to come out 
  • Inej just turns wide-eyed and innocent towards them
  • “Is there anything you want me for?”
  • “Did you already forget the blind date we were setting up for you this afternoon?”
  • “Oh, that? Sorry to tell you both, your efforts weren’t successful. I met a new person all my own.”
  • and she turns expectantly towards Kaz
  • and Kaz peers over his laptop, gives Nina and Jesper both a small nod
  • “Kaz Brekker.”
  • and then goes back to his notes (but still doesn’t let go of Inej’s hand) 
  • Nina is not convinced; Jesper is looking Kaz up and down before finally giving an impressed nod towards Inej 
  • when the both of them finally leave, Inej lets out a sigh before releasing her grip on Kaz’s hand 
  • “Sorry about that. Needed to avoid the latest date they were setting for me.”
  • Kaz raises his eyebrows
  • “I’m not sure one of your friends was convinced. They’ll come back to you for more evidence.”
  • Inej looks at Kaz, really looks at him, takes in his case notes and lawyer briefcase
  • “Something you’ll be capable of, I assume?”
  • Kaz smirks. “My talent lies in manipulating the public with observable truths. I can convince all your friends that we’re a couple - if you’re just as competent.”
  • Inej leans forward and suddenly Kaz’s smirk disappears 
  • her face is just inches away from his and Kaz’s eyes immediately flick toward her lips 
  • she sighs then and Kaz can’t hide a shiver
  • Inej draws away with a mischievous gleam in her eyes 
  • “Oh, you’ll find I’m more than capable.”
Minific: The Kitten

          “What. Is that,” Matthias squinted unhappily at Nina, who was cradling a kitten.

           “Surely you’ve seen a kitten before,” Nina shot back, before cooing maternally at the small animal she held. “Aren’t you just the sweetest little thing?”

           “A pet?” Matthias asked disdainfully, wrinkling his nose. “How useless.”

           “She’s not useless! She’s my baby,” Nina whined, hugging the kitten to her chest.

           Matthias frowned.

           “Look at that face! How could you resist that face?” Matthias’s frown deepened as a fluffy, white kitten was shoved into his face.

           “Leave me alone, Nina. I don’t like pets.”

           Nina pouted, holding out the kitten once again.


           Matthias obliged, the hint of a smile on his face as he gently patted the fur on top of the kitten’s head. After a minute, he pulled his hand away, expression hardening into frown again.

           “A-alright. It’s kind of nice, I guess.”

           Nina grinned smugly.

recoilmagazine  Some of the #EDC laid out before rolling toward the Tohono O'odham Reservation to meet some trackers, then down to Naco. #trailsfound16#ahorseisavillage #goodgearmatters #saddleup #jimgrasky Support @soc_f.#deadbirdsociety #knifehandpatches @sogknives @trijicon @ke_arms@spartanblades1 @phlster @freedommunitions @greenberetfoundation @glockinc. The patch is based on a quote from Dune. “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killler. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
