    Summary

    “Why not a hook, though?” Brienne said, and Jaime followed her gaze to the golden hand covering his stump. He paused, and she added, “It’s pretty, but it’s not much use, is it?"

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Brienne gave a snort. “You’re pretty enough without lugging a useless golden hand around for show.”

    “Why, Lady Brienne, are you saying you think I’m pretty?” he said, smirking, and she huffed an annoyed noise; he turned a little to face her and gave her a wistful smile, his eyes wide and soulful—he didn’t actually know what it was that made women think he was pretty, but that seemed likely to work—and she glared at him incredulously a moment and then her eyes widened and she instantly jerked her face away as if it had just occurred to her, in that very moment, that why yes, she did think he was pretty, and he’d have wagered at least one finger of his other hand that if it weren’t so dark, he’d see her blushing.
    -
    Because she was his; she was his in her heart, and she was his in the world, too, and he’d spent so long determined not to admit that it mattered at all, determined not to care—not to care that he couldn’t be congratulated on his wife, that he couldn’t spend his nights in her bed; that he couldn’t kiss her where anyone else, even a servant, even a page, might see and carry tales. That he had to sneak like a thief, that he had to be a thief and a liar, every time.

    Meredith's Fist, because that is what they call Cullen in the stories.

    *

    Dorian's almost asleep when Cullen says, softly, "What did you mean, that you saw what they did to me?"

    Dorian had forgotten he was there. "Claw-scars on your soul," he murmurs into the pillow. It smells of Cullen and his traitor heart twists. "Something tore you half to shreds trying to get inside and possess you. Clearly would've had to kill you to succeed, though." Then he laughs, because that is just so Cullen.

    A long, slow breath, behind him. "I did not know that mages could see souls."

    Summary

    He’d never imagined it for himself, saying the words. He couldn’t imagine it, because he wasn’t whole; he belonged to the other half of himself only.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    She was frowning a little, her broad mouth puzzled, and he wanted to be in her the way he wanted to be lying on warm grass, in summer; he wanted it like he wanted his hand back, like something impossible.
