    kanej isn’t friends-to-lovers in that they were best friends and then fell for each other and started dating, they were best friends and then at some point it became romantic but ghezen only knows when that was. and idk what’s funnier: the way kaz and inej are a teenaged couple who can’t celebrate a relationship anniversary because they genuinely don’t know when they started dating or the fact that freddy carter and amita suman are two adults trying to portray this dynamic while having absolutely no idea that’s what it is

    Shower 2 {Kaz Brekker x reader}

    Summary: Y/n and Kaz talk about the chances they have for a future. Fluff, Angst.

    Warnings: Kaz talks about his past and trauma.

    This was requested by the lovely @bellarayel <3

    !!!You should read the Part 1 first! You can find it here:

    Kaz Brekker was embarrassed.

    It was something so unlikely, something absolutely crazy. The bastard of the barrel was never embarrassed. He made others embarrassed for the things he did.

    But he couldn't pull this move on Y/n.

    And, for fucks sake, Kaz couldn't stop worrying what would happen if she would tell anyone.

    The tension between them was visible, even to blind eyes. The crows could easily guess that something had happened between.

    They just couldn't figure out what exactly.

    Y/n wasn't embarrassed at all. She never felt this confident in her entire life.

    There really wasn't a reason to be, he was the one that walked in on her showering, he was the one who decided she was attractive enough to stay. He decided she was worth it. Of course that pushed her confidence.

    Y/n was mercilessly teasing Dirtyhands with nonsense, that only the two could understand.

    Kaz was always looking away, scoffing as if it was nonsense to him too, but they all knew better. Something had made Kaz Brekker uncomfortable, and the Bastard of the Barrel tried his best to not let anybody see it.

    It was a thursday, to be exact four days after the incedent. Y/n was gambling with Jesper, clearly winning and giggling after she took yet another shot of vodka.

    „Jesper, you hideous idiot, if you're loosing another round I demand two shots!" The women cried out, slapping her cards on the table to reaveal a royal flush. Jesper sighed. „If anything, I'm not hideous. I'm breathtaking, bet that Wylan will confirm that. But if I win, you will pay me back everything I've lost today, darling."

    Wylan leaned against Jesper, looking between his two friends, knowing well that Jesper would loose either way.

    „Maybe you should let it be now."

    „No way!" Y/n gasped. „I'm not going to end the evening already. I have nothing to do tomorrow next to going out for waffles with Nina in the evening. If I have the chance to sleep in late, I at least want to have a valid reason for that. And that is either staying up for hours or having a hangover."

    Both, Wylan and Jesper chuckled softly. „Maybe you should stop drinking anyways. You already had enough." Wylan noticed now. Y/n made a grimace. "But that would be so boring."

    In that moment she looked to the door and spotted Kaz Brekker himself entering the Slat. „Anyways both, enjoy youself. I think I just found my alternative." She winked and stood up, walking towards Kaz.

    „What do you want Y/n?" Dirtyhands asked, without even looking at her. „Why do you think that I want anything from you?" Y/n asked sweetly, looking up to him with big eyes. Kaz sighed.

    „Because the entire week you only ever approached me to bother me." Kaz walked the stairs up to his attic.

    Y/n looked back to Jesper and Wylan, grinned and followed the Bastard of the Barrel.

    Right before his door, he turned around on his heel, causing her to pause only inches away from him.

    She didn't dare to breathe, but she could feel his breath on her skin.

    „Listen, I know what I did shouldn't have happened. But it's not something you should tell anyone either, for both of our sake."

    She breathed in deeply once.

    „It didn't bother me."

    „What?"

    Kaz asked, almost surprised.

    „If it would've bothered me, I would have said something while you were still in the bathroom. I didn't. Kaz, your presence never bothers me." Her voice was so low, that it only reached him as a whisper.

    Kaz looked down the floor, before he opened

    his door and walked into his room. She sighed, but the moment she looked into his face, she realised he expected her to follow him.

    Once she was in, he closed the door behind her again. The young women watched silently as Kaz undressed his coat and hat.

    "What do you expect me to do with that information." Kaz turned to her again, when he had finished. Y/n shrugged.

    "I just felt like you deserved to know. There's no need for you to feel bad about it." She told him honestly. "I know I'm stunning, I would've stayed too." The young women then joked.

    She didn't know how to keep the conversation serious, when the situation was something so unlikely.

    If Kaz could, he would kiss her. He would make a step forward and take her face in his hands, and then he would put his lips on her and snog her as if there wasn't a tomorrow.

    He had that instict, for a split second.

    But Kaz couldn't.

    And she didn't deserve that. She deserved all the love in the world, for every moment she brought joy to it with her youthful character a bit more. He couldn't give that to Y/n.

    He looked down, disappointed in himself.

    She noticed. "Kaz..." Y/n said softly, moving closer to him. He made a step back. She stopped. "I really don't know what else to do, or to say." She looked down too. "Where is this supposed to go, Brekker?"

    "Nowhere." He answered silently.

    "Nowhere?" She reassured herself, her voice turning lower. "Yes."

    Y/n scoffed and started biting her lip.

    "In that case I will stay away from you. Sorry to bother." She snapped, as she turned to leave.

    The moment her hand landed on the doorknob, Kaz opened his mouth.

    "It's not that I don't want it." He said.

    Y/n didn't turn around to face him. She leaned her forehead against the door and waited for him to continue.

    "But I can't. Really. I could never give you what you want. I can't even give that to myself."

    She smiled bitterly. "And that is?"

    "I couldn't touch you. Not in any way. Maybe what I did gave you wrong hopes for that.

    If someone would touch me, I would loose my mind. And really, I would if I could. I want to kiss you and touch you and feel you. The moment I saw you standing in the shower I knew it.

    And you don't know what it feels like to fall in love with you. You don't know what it's like when I can't change it. And how could I have you, when I'm always bound to loose the people I care for. How can I have you, when I will cause you such trouble."

    Y/n could feel her eyes tear up.

    "I only loose my mind when I aint got you.

    You don't know what I want, Kaz Brekker.

    Because if you would, you'd know that I only want you. And I could live with all the ups and downs. I know I can. It would be worth it."

    She finally turned around. Kaz looked like a mess. She had never seen him like that.

    He seemed so vulnerable, so honest.

    "I can't speak for you. But I've made my decision. I want you, and I would pay every price. You know shit about my needs, and you don't have the right to decide something like this for me. So if you want it, and if I do, I don't see why we won't just try."

    They looked each other in the eyes for several moments. In that moment, they had let each other seen what was going on in depths of their souls. Kaz pushed himself away from the table he leaned against and walked over to Y/n.

    As close as he could.

    And he took off his right glove. Without cutting the eye contact, he carefully placed his hand on her cheek. He could feel his heart beat faster, the panic starting to take over. But Kaz stood still. Listening to her calm breathing, watching her lips trembling, feeling her tears on his hand. She wasn't cold, or lifeless.

    Her cheek was warm and soft and she smelled like apples and chocolate and a tiny bit like the cigarettes the Dregs smoked downstairs.

    Kaz closed his eyes. She didn't feel like Jordie.

    She didn't feel like a corpse. She felt alive, and welcoming and comforting and he could feel the panic leave.

    Kaz was proud. Y/n was prouder.

    And suddenly they felt as if they had a future.

    i haven’t read some honest to goodness teenagers inexplicably fucking shit up YA fiction in a while so it is such a whiplash to see this seventeen year old threaten grown adult criminals and them being actually scared of him. like. genre of edgelord shenanigans, I’ve missed you

    #I mean this with enough love but it is so funny bcus the last ya book I read was trc reread #and they are pretty good representation of teenage drama all things considered! the narrative does a good job of exploring the entire #teenage experience #jashdbdjs im reading soc I’m sure there’s gonna be reasonable explanations for everything but it’s so funny to hear Kaz. say anything #soc

    Kit Young is amazing as Jesper Fahey so far, but i'm really interested how he's gonna play him in serious scenes, because those are the ones that made me love Jes so much

    #spoiler warning! #Jesper being Grisha is my favourite plot twist and his inner identity crisis about it in SoC and Crooked Kingdom is so well-written #the part at the Ice Court when he realises he doesn't mind being killed as a theif and a killer but doesn't wanna be hunted as a Grisha #chef's kiss #six of crows #crooked kingdom#jesper fahey

    Kaz Brekker didn’t need a reason. Those were the words whispered on the streets of Ketterdam, in the taverns and coffeehouses, in the dark and bleeding alleys of the pleasure district known as the Barrel. The boy they called Dirtyhands didn’t need a reason anymore than he needed permission- the break a leg, sever an alliance, or change a man’s fortunes with the turn of a card.

    Of course they were wrong, Inej considered as she crossed the bridge over the black waters of Beyurskanal to the deserted main square that fronted the Exchange. Every act of violence was deliberate, and every favor came with enough strings attached to stage a puppet show. Kaz always had his reasons. Inej could just never be sure they were good ones. Especially tonight.

    - Six of Crows, 15.

    i find this so funny because i can just imagine Inej rolling her eyes at the thought that people think Kaz doesn’t need a reason.

    Everything that he does is for a reason, for his own cause and sometimes others. this is the reputation that he needs to not be messed with in the Barrel, and to have it at 17 is quite impressive. he quite literally built up this reputation from age 9 forward and became the deadliest boy in the Barrel, and everyone just thinks he doesn’t need a reason. i find that so cool.

    I can’t lose you too

    You get injured but hide it from Kaz in order to join a mission. 

    A/N: Really don’t know what this is but enjoy. 

    Ship: Kaz Brekker x Reader

    Trigger Warnings: Little bit of angst in the end, small make-out scene 

    Word Count: 1384

    You and Jesper were hiding behind a crate as you guys kept your eyes on the targets. There was a sharp stabbing of pain in your stomach. You tried your best not to move your left arm too much because every time you did you could feel the rushed stitches you did earlier today pulling and coming apart. 

    Earlier today you were walking the streets of Ketterdam heading back towards the Slat, walking in a dark alley because it was the quickest way there. You were distracted thinking about the important mission tonight. The Dime Lions were stupid enough to take something that belonged to Kaz. You were so distracted you barely dodged the first knife coming for you. Instantly you became alert, reaching for your own baton’s. 4 Dime Lions came into view and slowly backed you into the wall. 

    “Look it’s Brekker’s Whore.” one of them sneered. 

    “What are you going to do now that Brekker isn’t here?” another one said. 

    You put on a twisted smile of your own and pulled out your twin batons. The first one lunged and the 3 others followed. It was a difficult fight, 4 strong men against one lithe figure but after 3 minutes you managed to crush the windpipes of 3 men, effectively killing them. There was only one left and he seemed to be the most skilled. You dodged each punch and kick sending your own as well. A sharp stab of pain startled you and you stumbled, allowing him to send 2 solid kicks to your stomach which sent you flying into the wall. The fucker stabbed you. The man towered over you and smirked. 

    “Not so tough without Brekker are you?” before his smirk  could even form you threw your baton directly into his face, knocking him out. 

    The knife didn’t hit any vital organs but still hurt like hell. You could feel the bruises forming on your stomach from the 2 kicks the man sent you. You knew if Kaz found out he wouldn’t allow you to join the mission tonight. The mission was already dangerous enough with you and without your skills the crows have an even higher chance of getting injured or dying. And there was no way in hell you would allow that. 

    The pain was bad but manageable. The adrenaline pumping in your veins was the only thing keeping the pain at bay so you had to move fast before it wore off. Using the wall, you slowly pushed yourself up and lipped out of the alley, leaving the 4 bodies behind. 

    You barely sneaked into the Slat. You did a rushed job stitching yourself back together and had to shove a towel in your mouth to stop from screaming. You finished it and cleaned yourself up, removing all traces of the events before. 

    -- 

    Now you were hiding behind the crates and could feel the stitches slowly coming apart. You squirmed trying to find a position that didn’t pull your stitches so much. 

    “You okay?” asked Jesper. 

    You tried for a smile. “Never been better.” 

    Jesper looked at you skeptically but didn’t press harder. 

    You kept your eyes on Kaz and saw his signal. Immediately you and Jesper got out of your hiding spot and were met with a group of Dime Lions, among them was the guy who stabbed you earlier.

    “This has got to be a fucking joke.” you sighed but pulled out your 2 batons. Your left side was weak and you tried your best to defend it. You thanked the Saints for Inej multiple times when she stabbed someone moments before they attacked your left side. 

    You saw the Dime Lion from earlier stalking towards you. 

    “I thought the last time would have kept you down.” 

    You quirked your mouth. “Come for round two?” 

    And you pounced. This fight was more difficult, you were tiring too fast and the pain in your side becoming too much but you pushed on. He focused all his blows to your left side, knowing what happened earlier today. It took everything to defend your left side but a few blows slipped through and when they met the wound you nearly blacked out each time. He hit you again, harder than the last time, you were stumbling when a cane came out of nowhere and knocked out the Dime Lion. 

    You grabbed onto the wall and pushed your nausea to bay, waiting for the black spots to fade away. You could feel all eyes boring into you. 

    “Care to explain what that was?” Kaz glared. 

    You managed to plaster a weak grin. “Nope.” 

    “What did he mean ‘last time’?” asked Inej. 

    “Your heart is beating way too fast.” said Nina. “And you look way too pale.” 

    “I’m fine, great actually.” you were trying to get out of the situation and just wanted to return back to the Slat. 

    “Lift up your shirt.” said Kaz, seeming to piece together what happened. 

    “No thank you.” 

    “Is your shirt wet?” asked Jesper. You thanked the Saints for the black shirt that hid the red blood but it was short lived. 

    “No that’s blood.” observed Inej. 

    “Y/n lift up your shirt.” Kaz pressed harder. 

    You started walking out of the plaza, clutching your side but was stopped by a cane. 

    “Kaz move your stupid stick away or I will snap it in two.” 

    “Lift your shirt up.” You two glared at each other, refusing to back down. In his eyes you saw a poor mask of nonchalant but behind it a sea of worry and raging anger. The worry surprised you and finally you caved it. 

    “I’m not striping for you in the middle of an alley, I’ll do it back in the Slat.” no one appreciated your humor but Kaz listened and you guys made the walk home. Kaz’s eyes bore into you the entire walk back and every time you stumbled the hand on his cane clenched harder. 

    -- 

    After struggling up the stairs you finally collapsed into the chair by his desk. 

    After reassuring all the others you were fine they finally left you alone with Kaz. 

    “Care to explain now?” 

    Slowly you lifted up your shirt and gauged his reaction, you didn’t want to admit that you were afraid of how he would react. The gauze was completely soaked red and around the bandage was a huge plaster of bruises. Kaz clenched his jaw. You started to change the bandage and redo the stitches. 

    Kaz silently watched you stitch yourself back up and when you started wrapping the bandages he finally spoke up. 

    “What the hell were you thinking going on a mission after being stabbed?” 

    “We’re all alive aren’t we? So I don’t really see the need for you to be so angry.” anger started boiling underneath your skin. Why was Kaz making this such a big deal? You helped with the mission and prevented possible injuries so why was he so mad? 

    “You were a liability, what if you passed out? Or got even more injured? You could have endangered the mission.” 

    Anger flooded your veins. “Oh so that’s why you’re angry? Only because I could have cost your precious kruge?” Throughout your fight Kaz slowly backed you up to the wall until he was only a breath away from you. 

    “Am I even a human being to you?” you pressed harder. 

    Kaz’s glare bore into you.

    Anger choked you as you stumbled over your words. “Or am I some sort of-of-investment?”

    He’s eyes were unreadable as you pushed on. 

    “What happens if I get injured and can never help your precious missions anymore? Will you just dump me on the stre-”

    “Goddammit I care for you y/n and I can’t lose you too.” Kaz shouted. 

    You immediately shut up. Your brain short circuited and went completely blank. 

    “What?” 

    “You make me feel things. I-I can’t lose you like everyone else.” The end of Kaz’s sentence was raw with emotion. 

    The next thing you know you press your lips to Kaz. For a minute he tensed but then kissed you back. The kiss was filled with anger and passion, both of you guys a clash of lips and teeth, refusing to let the other one dominate.  

    “Hey is y/n feeling bett-OH MY SAINTS.”

    you know what i really love about kaz brekker? it's his delicious moral ambiguity and i'm not talking about murder

    i'm talking about how he treats the people around him. on one hand we have him icing jesper out for most of crooked kingdom to the point of being callous, but then at the end of it all, telling inej to tell jesper that he misses him. he didn't just admit that he misses him, he specifically tells her to pass on the message. what does that show you? it's pretty obvious that kaz was only angry because inej got kidnapped because of jesper's slip up and not because kaz dislikes jesper in general or only sees jesper as an asset. and then you have the way he interacts with wylan. the main thing here for me was how he never, never, mocked wylan for his dyslexia. in fact, he made him feel better about it. if kaz was truly a cruel person, he would 100% have picked on wylan's biggest insecurity. but he isn't and he didn't. another thing that comes to mind is the way he talked to colm. at the end of it all, he did include colm in his subterfuge, but that wasn't his initial plan. for the first few minutes of their interaction in the morgue (before the "you have an honest face" dialogue), kaz isn't planning anything. instead, he actually came to jesper's defense. and this is when inej is still with van eck and kaz hasn't forgiven jesper yet. he's angry with jesper, but not so far that he would force jesper to come clean to his dad about everything

    kaz brekker isn't a good person, he can be callous and mean, and has literally killed people. but at the end of it all, he does care about his crows and that's what makes him so human
