    Summary

    Costis had seen many people with little to no use for gods. They simply lived their lives. But among the guard, and among Attolia's soldiers, there were very few who had not spent the kind of moment when all you could do was pray. Prayer was important to soldiers.

    And more than most, Costis knew enough not to discount the words of a god, even a god he had only just learned of.

    Summary

    There was something that never got shared when they told the story to other people. A lot of that was because it couldn't be expressed in words. Kamet was a poet and a translator, though, and he tried his best to convey some small part of it.

     Costis... didn't even really try. But Eugenides could always get things out of people they hadn't even known were there.

    Summary

    Costis has a particularly enlightening evening.

    (or, that struggle when you're a guard who's in love with your rulers and it turns out you would kind of like it if they bossed you around a little)

    "Gen," Costis complains, "I have to go to class!" Unlike Gen and Irene, he hadn't been able to schedule his courses so he could keep Fridays free.

    "Just borrow something of mine," Irene says, sitting up and stretching languidly.

    Summary

    “He looks too young to be taking his *own class*,” Costis continued. “He’s the worst Defense Against the Dark Arts professor we’ve ever had. And that's saying something.”

    “You’re mad for him, aren’t you,” Aris teased. “It’s ‘Queen’ Attolia all over again… calf-eyes and mooning and swearing fealty…”

    Costis felt his ears go scarlet.

    “I do *not* have a crush on the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher,” Costis insisted.

    “Happy to hear it,” Professor Saccularius sang out. “As I understand it, those can be very awkward, for both parties. I’ll expect those scrolls on my desk first thing on Wednesday!” And he breezed past them as if he couldn’t tell that Costis was choking on his own tongue.

    *

    Or: the one where Costis is exceedingly suspicious of the new DADA professor.

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
