    Summary

    "'Another round, for old times’ sake?' Fjord asks, daring, joking.

    'I would be glad to take another gamble with you rolling the dice beside me.' Serious. Without any more talk, Caleb lets his fingers rest on the altar’s surface."

    Fjord and Caleb's propensity for activating magical rituals gets them into trouble in the form of a strange mental connection that the people of Rosohna seem to see as something more. Awkwardness, long talks, and a trip to a fancy ball ensue.

    Summary

    It is the quartermaster's duty to dispense discipline to those who transgress against the captain.

    (Wherein the Wall of Fire on the Squall-Eater is extinguished, and the fight goes rather less well for the Nein: an alternate path, and a difficult compromise.)

    Summary

    After the events of episode 44, Fjord has much to consider.

    --

    His left hand has a cut across the palm. It sinks deep into the muscle, blood curling up from it in a slow-moving red tendril.

    LEARN. GROW. PROVOKE. CONSUME.

    ALLY.

    He looks directly into the eye on his left, holding his palm up to it. “You think this will be fruitful—”

    There’s a short burst of flame in the eye, reflected from a great distance. ALLY. The ocean stretches before him, the ships afloat as he’s seen before, and this time, as he brings his hand up to command the seas, the skies fill up whole with fire.

    Summary

    The dreams come frequently now. Sometimes they're hard to remember when Fjord wakes up, just the image of water, the memory of skin on skin, sand in his hair and fingers tight on his shoulders. Other times, they are more concrete, blue eyes turning yellow, a mouth moving but the voice is different, lower, resonant. Some of them fill Fjord with a sense of exhilaration, the first swoop of the stomach after a sharp plummet, the feel of having your lungs punched, disoriented before your head breaks the surface and you inhale that first gasp of breath.

    But most of them just leave him with a sense of dread.
