“Queenscove,” he says with a half-hearted glance up. “You’re in the palace late in the working day. What new piece of his revitalized government has our king-to-be been asking your opinion of?”
Every single conversation with Thom reminds her exactly why it was that she could go from “neutral” to “keen on disemboweling” in such a short span of time. That’s not important, but it helps her thoroughly quash the fantasy of conjuring a ball of water and dropping it on his head.

“Should we talk about what just happened?” Baird asked, voice very low.
“Talk about how an eleven-year-old child opened a doorway to divine power?” said Myles. “Or talk about how that child did so to save the prince from an unnatural disease sent to disable the line of succession? Or talk about how that child is likely now a prime target for whoever sent it?”
“We could talk about how we’re not referring to that child as a boy, right now,” offered Baird, and Myles took a sharp breath.
"For that child’s sake, we should talk about none of this.”

"How long have we known each other?" Her voice felt rusty.
Raoul was sprawled next to her on the bed. He blinked at the ceiling and cracked his neck. "Twenty years?"

James Kirk was the rudest student Professor Heleine ever taught. He stomped out of the middle of the professor's lecture like he wasn't a mere cadet. Well, the professor was done putting up with him. If he couldn't sit through an expert lecture, then he should give the lecture about Tarsus. That would teach him some respect.
- Part 1 of Teaching Tarsus
Slowly, losing the fight against the trembles shaking his hands, Alec unbuckles the archery guard on his wrist, his breathing quickening as he tries to prepare himself for what he knows is beneath. He feels brittle and fragile, as though the loose guard is the only thing tacking the pieces of himself together.
Alec yanks it off and the breath is punched out of him in a wordless sound of pain and loss at the sight of the blank skin beneath, every trace of Magnus, of their marriage, erased as though it's never been, not even the silver scar from when the runes are removed through divorce remaining.
As a true nephilim, Magnus realizes he can bear runes in the time he's without his magic. However, the goal was always to get his magic back.
