So at the end of Rule of Wolves a few things are made pretty clear
Hanne is a trans man
He is wearing the face of Prince Rasmus but he doesn’t want to go by that name in private
He and Nina discuss names but unfortunately Leigh doesn’t give us his canon name which sucks for writing fic, or talking as a fandom
So are we going with Ilya? I’m thinking Ilya. He and Nina talk about going with a Saint, and I haven’t read the lives of the saints yet so if someone has another suggestion drop it but if not... Ilya Brum everyone?
Me, after reading crooked kingdom: well Matthias is still alive and I’m gonna write so many helnik smut fics to prove it
Kaz remembered when Inej had first seen the jackal masks in a shop window. She hadn’t been able to contain her contempt. “Real Suli fortune tellers are rare. They’re holy men and women. These masks that are handed around like party favors are sacred symbols.”
“I’ve seen Suli tellers ply their trade in caravans and pleasure ships, Inej. They didn’t seem so very holy.”
“They are pretenders. Making themselves clowns for you and your ilk.”
“My ilk?” Kaz had laughed.
She’d waved her hand in disgust. “Shevrati,” She’d said. “Know-nothings. They’re laughing at you behind those masks.”
“Not me, Inej. I’d never lay down good coin to be told my future by anyone- fraud or holy man.”
“Fate has plans for us all, Kaz.”
“Was it fate that too you from your family and stuck you in a pleasure house in Ketterdam? Or was it just very bad luck?”
“I’m not sure yet,” She’d said coldly.
In moments like that, he thought she might hate him.
- Six of Crows, 73.
“You were children. Was there no one to protect you?”
“Was there anyone to protect you?”
“My father. My mother. They would have done anything to keep me from being stolen.”
“And they would have been mowed down by slavers.”
“Then I guess I was lucky I didn’t have to see that.”
How could she still look at the world that way? “Sold into a brothel at age fourteen and you count yourself lucky?”
“They loved me. They love me. I believe that.”
- Crooked Kingdom, 360.
idk but i just found this little, what i like to think parallel in the stories or just plain growth on Inej’s part. the first one was set before the events of book one (a little flashback in Kaz’s pov) and then the second one is also from Kaz’s pov, but the bathroom scene where he’s telling her some of his trauma and she’s telling him his. but they both trust each other more and i’m just. yeah.
just a girly defending her country, and her friends 😌
wait so hanne brum (possibly named Ilya Brum?) really is a trans king huh?
Day 20 : Corporalki
Another repost, but this is my favorite one I've made so I'm not mad.
Nikolai Lanstov and Hanne Brum to the loves of their lives
so um not to make anyone cry but in Crooked Kingdom the crows place red tulips on Matthias’ chest at his funeral
In King of Scars when Nina buries him she tosses a handful of dried red petals “from their compatriots in Ketterdam” into the grave
In Rules of Wolves Jesper and Wylan’s door is--hang on a second--the door has--THE DOOR IS PAINTED WITH RED TULIPS.
y'all talented people in the fandom: once the shadow drops I'm tryna see the SOFTEST edits of ms. alina starkov
ik there have already been some made with the limited content we've got but I'm talking FULL uwu
🤔Nina 'Queen of Mourning' Zenik really is gonna be a queen huh? 🤫😉🖤❤
Im going to be making tons of darklina and kanej gifsets and im so so excited
Leave my boy Kaz alone he just wants to throw eyeballs overboard and make his friends rich
so here’s the thing. i’m confused with the shadow and bone series coming out on netflix. does anyone know if it’s going to follow the books? and if so, what books do i have to read before i watch the show so there’s no spoilers? i actually just started six of crows five days ago and didn’t know about the show until three days ago. i’m close to being done tho!!
so do i have to read crooked kingdom for the show to make sense and for there to be no spoilers? and is there another book or series too? i watched the trailer and i only recognized the crows. plz help!!
Everyone else: MALINA vs DARKLINA
Me: Alina x Zoya

is Aditi Hilli Jesper's mom? the stories match up but I don't feel like searching through SoC and CK at this time looking for the part where she is mentioned to check. maybe I will do it later
Jesper : So are you two dating or what?
Kaz : Of course we are not dating! Why would you think that?
Wylan : Because you just killed 5 men after they insulted Y/N.
Kaz : Bold of you to assume I need a reason to kill someone.
Inej : Fine, even though what you just said is not fine at all. If you are not dating why did you let her cut your hair?
Kaz : You’re the one who always says by haircut looks bad! Why are complaining then, Wraith?!
Jesper : How did you know about that?
Inej : Do you really need to ask?
Nina : Whatever. She wasn’t complaint but she still got a point. You and Y/N are dating.
Kaz : Ridiculous.
Matthias : Demjin, I’ve gone down the road of not admitting that there is a thing, doesn’t work. So just admit it!
Y/N : Admit what?
Everyone except Kaz and Y/N : That you are together.
Y/N : Of course we are, right love?
Kaz : No we are not!
Y/N smirking : Then what are we?
Kaz : We are just acquaintances who spend time together.
Y/N : Oh so then you won’t mind if I go on a date with someone?
Kaz stands up
Jesper : Where are you going?
Kaz : I need to have a little chat about a few matters with someone.
Y/N : You don’t even know who they are!
Kaz : I’LL FIND OUT!
Nina : So you really are together.
Y/N : Of course we are. I mean we do live together after all.
Matthias : Who would have thought that Kaz Brekker can love someone except kruge.
Inej and Wylan : Tell me about it.
Jesper : So he actually lets you cut his hair?!
Y/N : Yep.
Inej : Saints, he really must love you.
Nina : Or he simply has gone mad.
Wylan : Or he was killed and that is someone else pretending to be him, just with a better haircut.
Matthias : You are all horrible.
Matthias : But I have to agree with Nina.
Kaz: not to be dramatic or anything-
Kaz: okay fine I was trying to be dramatic
Jesper: *tips hat*
