Matthias Helvar before meeting Nina: I’ll make sex when I will get married, not before because honour is the most important things for a man and I’ll never dishonoured a woman or myself sharing a bed before the wedding.
Matthias after meeting Nina: they have sex in every place or every surface they find, always jumping on each other and can’t step away from the other, and keep the neighbours awake all the night.

Every time I read the 44th chapter of Crooked Kingdom:
Kaz bringing Inej to the farm where he grew up edition
i imagine this fairly far into their relationship, like they have broken a lot of barriers
as in he’s already met her parents and stayed with them for a short while
she’s been talking about wanting to see where he grew up but she didn’t want to cross any boundaries or make him feel like he has to show her
He would briefly mention wanting to take her there, like kinda being subtle about it
Inej would of course be all in for it
He would stress so much about getting all the work done he needed to before they left
Like a few nights before they leave he’s up till 3 am doing paperwork for the crow club
not to mention packing
people usually write inej as the over prepared packer, but you can’t convince me that Kaz wouldn’t make a list of everything they needed, double, triple and quadruple check it.
this drives inej crazy
“I understand you want to be prepared but do we really need an extra change of clothes for everyday we’re there?”
The whole trip there, hes fidgeting with his cane and gloves out of nerves because *oh my god i’m going h o m e*
Inej trying to distract him by making him play games like I-Spy
He is not having it
She asks him to tell her what it’s like but everytime he tries to he just gets all choked up, so she lets it go.
“You can just show me when we get there. Im excited to see it one way or another.”
When they eventually get there, it takes him 15 minutes to even get himself in the doorway
like he’s just standing outside, staring at the house, kind of in shock?
Inej waits patiently for him to be ready to go inside.
He decides to show her the stables and the barn first, because it’s outside and yk, he needs some small steps
“This used to be a chicken coop. I would get their eggs every morning for my mother. I even had a favorite one.”
“And to think you tell me off for feeding the crows outside your window.”
he shows her the whole barn and tells her as many stories thar he can without getting too emotional
Eventually he’s ready to go into the house
As soon as they go in, he already starts to get a little overwhelmed
because that’s a lot of feelings, and he’s not too great at those
he ends up having to sit down, and she just waits with him.
after awhile he’s ready to walk around
he just goes through the rooms silently at first, because if he talks he think he might just break down
until he gets to him qnd jordies bedroom
in which he cries
his eyes get all watery and he’s shaking and trying to hold all of it back
and it’s not the first time she has seen him cry either, so she knows what to do
She gives him his space until he needs it
“You can cry, Kaz. Stop holding it in.”
He just kind of grits his teeth snd shakes his head but he ends up crying anyway
it’s silent, just shaking shoulders and tears on his cheeks
and sitting in his childhood bedroom with his head in his hands inej thinks she can almost picture what he used to look like
it takes him awhile but eventually he regains his composure.
it had been awhile since he needed them, but he had to put his gloves back on while they were in there
it was just a little too much
and inej understood that, she knew that feeling all too well herself
when he was calm enough, he told her about jordie since previously he was only able to say so much
“He used to sleep on the top bunk, and i slept on the bottom. He would tell me these stories that would scare me shitless. Some nights i had to go sleep with our mother.”
“Kaz Brekker, afraid of scary stories. I can’t even picture it.”
They stay at the house for a few weeks, and Kaz only has nightmares the first two.
He makes her breakfast one morning using his parents old recipe book he found
he makes a mess, but the food is great
seeing him in a apron with flowers all over it, his pajamas, and with flour on his face is simultaneously hilarious, and also enough to make her fall in love all over again
“Why are you laughing at me”
“You look adorable”
“Shush, it’s the only apron i could find.”
much to her demise, he then takes off the apron
she doesn’t stop talking about him cooking for the rest of the day
“It was one meal, love”
“You’re an idiot if you think that’s the last meal you’ll be cooking”
He’s super reluctant to leave
Inej suggests bringing the crows there one day and ar first he’s like “no, that’s too much” but after he thinks about it he agrees
because he wants to make new memories with the family he’s made, even if he doesn’t want to admit it
she defo brags to everyone about his cooking when they get back qnd he’s like “stopstopsTOP”
anyway djfkskrjskkwt this was way too long i’m sorry lol-
Jesper: Excuse me, I’m Jesper Fahey, and I’m iconic
ANOTHER MODERN KANEJ HEAD CANNON:
-When Kaz starts dating Inej, she eventually convinces him to look into a therapy dog. He actually goes through with it. The sweetest moment of the entire ordeal is when Inej comes over to Kaz’s apartment several months later, and lets herself in with her key. She finds Kaz asleep with the black lab, fondly named “Jack” after the playing card, draped over his chest on the couch. Both dog and man snoring softly. Jack wakes up and wags his tail when he sees Inej, but doesn’t move from his boy, who he always watches over.
Bonus: for Jack’s first “gotcha day”, Inej buys the dog a little black tie that clips to his collar. She hears Kaz call him “a very good gentleman” when he takes him for a walk. Inej never uttered a word, but smiles like a sunbeam the rest of the afternoon.
(Yeah I might write a Kanej modern AU eventually, who am I?)
“I am a sinner; you are a saint.”
inej: so why don't you ever use the turn signals
kaz: it's no one's business where i'm going
Nina and Matthias taking care of their daughter in their room at the Little Palace.
Nina: I was thinking that tonight after dinner we can go for a walk in the garden.
Matthias: And who watched our little one?
Nina: I found for her the two best babysitters of the palace, that they already said me there’s no problem.
Matthias: Are Ivan and Fedyor true?
Nina: You said it like it was a bad thing.
Matthias: last time they babysitting our daughter next morning she had green paint in the hairs and a little Heartrenders kefta.
Nina: looking at him.
Matthias: looking at her.
Nina: Fine, I’ll ask at Genya and David.
dirtyhands who? I only know kaz "I want to bottle the sound of inej's laugh and get drunk on it" brekker

''She was not a lynx or a spider or even the Wraith. She was Inej Ghafa and her future was waiting above.''
