    Summary

    When he found himself kneeling at the edge of the folding blade, Daud knew, for the first time in his life, fear — not of death or the Void, but of unfinished business. He watched that gruesome mask judge him and his work, thoughts reeling: what would be worth, to Corvo, the sparing of one more life while high above them the wheel of fate spun round and round?

    “You see,” Daud rattled, “I had rather hoped to love you until the day I died.”

    Summary

    The only time Nile ever sleeps a full night and feels remotely part of herself is when she stays with Nicky and Joe, who shampoo brains out of each other’s hair in the shower and clean their guns on the couch watching Chopped reruns.

    Summary

    Yusuf translates medical texts for Niccolò from Greek and Persian into Arabic, and Niccolò spots the substratum of the ideas of the classical authors that he had once believed the basis of his own civilisation that he would go to the sword to defend, translated and passed down and sewn into a no longer foreign script. There are words Yusuf does not know how to translate. They will never, ever know all of the words. The prospect is thrilling.
    ---
    It takes Niccolò lifetimes to learn Arabic.

    Summary

    [“I just—“ Zuko begins, cuts himself off, opens his mouth to try again.

    Nothing comes out, and Sokka gives him a full-body squeeze to encourage him.

    “Maybe next time, you could, uh…”

    “Yes?”

    Rushing him does nothing but make him shut down, Sokka’s learned the hard way. Patience isn’t something that comes naturally, but it’s something that he’s learning, just like Zuko’s slowly learning to communicate.

    “Maybe next time, I want you to, uh, hold me down.”]

    Or,

    Zuko learns to use his words.
