wylan: so… what’s your talent?
jesper: multitasking ;)
kaz: he can disappoint 17 people at once.
I feel like Kaz would milk tf out of his marriage. Not just the tax and legal stuff that we all know he’d love, but he would use Inej as an excuse for literally everything nice he does.
“I only helped this child because my wife is a somewhat decent influence in me.”
“I’m sparing your life because my wife is visiting today. I don’t want her to see me covered in blood…. again.”
“Luckily for you, it’s my wife’s birthday so I’ll let your family live.”
And Inej is kinda confused bc she knows how he is at this point and is just, “I appreciate this, but also why??”
And Jesper is there to say, “before you came along and he wanted to do something nice he just hated himself a little ✨extra✨ 🤗”
Kaz: what do you think my forgiveness looks like Jordie?
Jesper: Who the hell is Jordie?
All the Dregs:
The entire Barrel:
Ketterdam (aka his mom):
Profit (aka his dad):
Fandom: Now thats a lot of damage.
John Mulaney: we don’t have time to unpack all that.
Aditi 🤝 her son
Small red haired men
I just caught up on Monsters at Midnight on your ao3 and I was having such a good time with Jordie and Kaz being adorable brothers and then you hit me “you would have been worse” and now I'm sobbing.
Omg I was having a good time too until I wrote that. There were lots of good fighting zingers I could have ended with, but I felt like there were a few that went a smidge too far so surprisingly that one was one of the kinder ones 😂
I’m excited to have Kaz’s POV the next couple ones. We get to see more of his relationship with Inej and Jesper and also I find it funny that he just walks around Ketterdam trying to be big and bad and everyone is just like “omg it’s JORDAN BREKKER’S brother” and poor Kaz is forever annoyed by it lol.
How hard must it have been for Kaz to turn thirteen, look in the mirror, and see he grew up to look exactly like Jordie 😔
Jesper: Kaz I have a question.
Jesper: Hypothetically, if I put eggs in the blender, they’d come out really fluffy and nice to scramble right?
Kaz: You are absolutely not allowed to use my blender for your experiments.
Wylan: Oooooooo, MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE SHELLS OFF FIRST.
But when is Inej going to get to kill Tante Heleen? When will I get to read that? When is she going to kill her and indoctrinate all the Menagerie peeps into her crew-
I just found out the crows all have astrological signs confirmed on their wiki and I??? Am losing it??? Allow me to share:
- Kaz: Capricorn (as a Capricorn I am pleased and frightened)
- Jesper: Gemini
- Inej: Cancer
- Wylan: Virgo
- Matthias: can’t find the source on this one but someone said Leigh said Taurus and that seems right.
- Nina: unconfirmed as well but Leigh apparently said Leo and Hell yeah
- Kuwei: a fucking Aries lmao I love him so much-
I think it would be funny if they had that typical “I said ALL your weapons” scene kinda like they did in the show with Inej but multiple times and it periodically becomes more and more ridiculous with the amount of weapons she carries
She takes off her twenty knives but then the person is like “come on, I said all of them” and from absolutely nowhere she pulls out a Glock.
Jesper: is that mine?
Inej: Kaz was teaching me how to steal
Wylan talking about Kuwei:
Tatiana when asked about Nikolai’s parentage:
Matthias except he’s talking about wolves:
GUYS Y'ALL ARE NOT READY FOR THIS
So I was re reading King of Scars and …
King of Scars : Chapter 6
Rule of Wolves : Chapter 20
I have no words. David Kostyk has rendered me speechless. David you beautiful brilliant man 😭😭
I know in my soul that David Kostyk offered to make Genya an epic fake eye. I know he did. He would hesitate to bring it up because he has trouble with certain social situations so he isn’t sure if he’s being insensitive or not, but 100% he made her a hyper-realistic eye that does some wild shit like shoots out bullets or something. Genya sees him working on it and asks what it is and he panics and says it’s for Nikolai.
…cue Genya absolutely horrified with what Nikolai is doing with a fake eye he doesn’t need.
Nikolai is downright thrilled he gets a fake eye…he is still figuring out where he’s going to put it.
Jesper would make Wylan special paint by taking the colors of things he knows Wylan likes. He just has these bottles of white paint and if Wylan is like “wow, that flower is such a pretty blue” he just snaps the color up and puts it in the paint.
Wylan realizes this and uses Jesper’s love for evil purposes.
Wylan: hiiiii Nina (:
Wylan: your kefta is so nice!
Nina: i will kill you and bring you back from the dead to kill you again
Wylan: I really love that red color!
Jesper, from freaking nowhere: what color?
Nina: *ugodly shrieking*
Jesper and Inej realizing they both have a mutual crush on Kaz:
Wylan and Kuwei realizing they have a mutual crush on Jesper:
Some of my fav Grishverse ships as couple pics from this post: https://witchwhaat.tumblr.com/post/653068817303486464
Bro Jesper got accepted into the same university Nikolai Lantsov did. That shit is wild to me. My guy is so smart that he went to the same school a literal prince did. And this man literally said “fuck it, I’m gonna join a gang instead”
The absolute gall. I love him.
Ok so i wanted to say something, don’t come at me.
In my opinion, in the books the quote “Make me your villian” isn’t really given that much importance. Like The Darkling just says it a random comment like “Go on, make me the villian see if i care”. And in the show its so dramatic for what? Like why is does he seem so hurt in that scene? I mean bruh you *are* the villain and you have the audacity to be upset that Alina hates you?
[Note: i am solely referring to the character and not ben barnes, please don’t yell at me i am sensitive]
I feel that. I think it became such a famous line bc it really highlights that the Darkling’s way of thinking and how he ancient he is that these inconsequential opinions mean so little (and also that he doesn’t believe he’s the bad guy).
But also the show changed the Darkling’s vibe from the book quite a bit in my eyes so they probs made it more dramatic to match his new energy. In the show (to me) he seems much more…emotional? Idk if that’s the right word. But in the book you could never be sure how genuine his feelings were towards Alina up until the end and in the show you can see so very clearly from the beginning.
Alternative version of the Kanej marriage:
Inej wants the crows to attend the ceremony but Kaz doesn’t because he doesn’t want them to make an ordeal over it. Inej says they have to compromise and Kaz’s version of compromise is “fine, they can come but they’re not allowed to know we’re getting married”
Which is confusing but ten months later Jesper is FURIOUSLY asking when they had gotten married and what not and Kaz calmly has this conversation:
Kaz: you were there
Jesper: I was not
Kaz: you were. Ask Inej.
Inej: it’s true. All of you were.
Nina:…..wait. Don’t tell me that fake wedding we did for a heist…?
Jesper: THAT WAS REAL?!
Wylan: no it wasn’t. I officiated that wedding. I’m not-
Kaz: you are
Wylan: what?! You got me ordained?!
Kaz: about three years ago, yeah
Matthias: you knew you were going to marry Inej that long ago?
Kaz: no, I just knew I wanted someone who can marry people on roster
Jesper: literally, why?
Kaz: I don’t owe any of you an explanation
Wylan: you owe me one!!! How did you get me ordained without me knowing?!
Kaz: is that really relevant now?
Nina: um. Wylan also pretended to marry me and Matthias though…?
Matthias: W H A T
Jesper: wow. Wylan, babe, we’re the only ones not married-
Kaz: you don’t think so?
Wylan: if I’m the only one who… could….marry….damnit. Inej, how could you?
Inej: I’m sorry. I thought we didn’t even have to tell you and you could just continue on with your own wedding as planned.
Jesper: what are you talking about? We fake-married on the Wraith and - YOURE THE CAPTAIN! FUCK, YOU MARRIED US!!
Matthias: why did you do this?
Kaz: you were going to get married anyways
Inej: Kaz didn’t want to be the only married couple in the group
My favorite thing about Wesper is that they are just so dramatic about each other. Within their first meeting Jesper thought Wylan looked like a lost prince and Wylan thought Jesper’s lips were the most perfect lips he’s ever seen.
Like it’s been two seconds, chill. The theatrics with these two are unreal.
Give Jesper credit, he chilled it so well that all he could said to this “lost prince” was that he had a stupid face
Lmao I’ll give him only a little credit bc I’m sure this was how his subconscious was working during that scene-
Jesper, internally: how do I calm tf down about my crush? He’s been tailored. I should casually mention I liked how he looked before. I should also play into my anger I’m feeling about being left out of the situation. I’m so smooth. This is gonna come out so we’ll because I’m great at flirting-
Also Jesper: MAYBE I LIKED YOUR STUPID FACE
Wylan, internally: ….maybe I like your stupid mouth.
I feel like it would be cool if in the show they had a dream sequence of Matthias chasing Nina that they just replayed constantly. Sometimes it ends with him choking her. Other times it ends with him kissing her.
Like, not just once or twice. I want it at least once an episode from here on out. It actually would have been cool if that’s how their story in season 1 ended. With him dreaming of her.
Maybe when *it* happens there can be a version of the dream shown where she’s running to him instead. Ya know. ✨For fun✨
Laughing at the idea of Colm finding out Jesper has a tattoo and being all scandalized only for Jesper to be like, “Kaz made me. It’s part of being in the Dregs, so he made me-” and Inej is there like “ItS oPTiONal”
Then Jes starts loudly saying that Inej was paying off a debt so obviously she gets a choice (besides, Kaz has a soft spot for Inej 🙄) while Wylan is whispering to Kaz “so, do I have to get one too?”
Matthias is all “Wylan are you even really a Dreg?” and it spurs a whole other side-argument while Colm is just there like “How is the gang you joined forcing you to get a tattoo GONNA MAKE ME FEEL ANY BETTER ABOUT THIS SITUATION, JESPER?!”
Kaz Brekker really just found a bunch of decidedly non-straight people and made them his most trusted allies and then refused to break out the token straight guy until absolutely necessary 😂
I started out on team “Kaz might be straight” but upon seeing the consensus I’ve been convinced. Allow me one minor edit:
