    'You're a wizard, Harry' is easier to hear from a half-giant when you're eleven, rather than from some kids on a tube platform when you're seventeen and late for work.

    Summary

    "An outsider might have found it absurd, a British officer, the son of a nobleman, tending to a wandering nobody like Tharkay, doing a task fit for a valet or common servant."

    Set during Blood of Tyrants, contains spoilers for the book and the entire series.

    Heroes are hitting Thedas like meteors now, one a decade, and each of them leaves gaping holes in their wake. Not in the world, Varric thinks, but for those who follow after.

    He and Leliana have both been through this once before already.

    Varric reflects on heroes, and on what exactly it means to be caught in their wake.

    Summary

    “Even humans are afraid of me," X6 says, toneless. "Why aren't you?" Curie’s first impulse is to say that X6 isn’t scary, but this is a total lie. It is simply that Curie has seen too much- human beings reduced to sacks of meat, men who wear skulls on their heads and string up their enemies as decorations, whole cities reduced to smoking ash, two hundred years of nothing, over and over- for a single man in a black coat to phase her.

    “If I was afraid of people just because they were dangerous, I would never have left my vault,” Curie says at last. On a whim, she raises her hand and steals X6’s glasses off his face. He squints a little without them. The sight makes Curie grin. “Fear is not useful for gathering good data. I do not believe that you will hurt me, not when we are working towards the same goals.” Curie raises her chin, looks X6 directly in the eyes. “If your goal is to further science, collaboration is the only logical outcome.”

    Summary

    Natalia is stacking blocks very carefully when the adults come into the room. None of them look at her, because they're all looking at her father. He's wearing combat gear, and the hair on the left side of his head is slicked back with blood. He smells like smoke and something unnameable, sweet and dark and a little sickly in her nose.

    Father is saying, “Don't be ridiculous. The only thing children are good at is disobeying.”

    Summary

    It’s not so much the strange children falling from the sky that are worrying Harry. It’s more that the children don’t seem to think the situation is all that weird.

    “No matter where I go,” Ed said thoughtfully, “there’s a goddamn pyromaniac there waiting for me.”
