If what Nikolai discussed in ROW is true then it stands to reason that this might be the longest Inej has been away from Ketterdam since she first set sail with The Wraith. Or rather the longest The Wraith (the ship along with it’s captain and crew) have been away from Ketterdam.
Since Kerch officials don’t know for sure it’s Inej, she and her crew members could still be secretly coming in and out. I personally think she did and is in correspondence with Kaz. I truly believe it’s her mission (not just a job) and he’s her spy now, her man on the inside. However, I do think this might be the longest she’s been away. The longest she’s been gone without seeing all of them. To protect herself from being identified as the captain of the Wraith. The Captain who is upsetting the pockets of those who profit from enslaving people young and old - corrupt merchers, politicians and barrel bosses. Since money talks in Kerch, more than anything else, anything that upsets that would upset them.
And Kaz, Jesper and Wylan along with other in the know Dregs adopt the stance of “Inej who? Never heard of such a person? The Wraith is a legend. I wonder who she is?”. And it works with most people because of the persona Inej had before she left Ketterdam. The Wraith/The Wraith Queen. They might KNOW it’s her but they might not know her name and hence cannot directly connect the dots. Also given her skills, most of them never saw her face.
The dregs know it but it’s unclear if all the others do since most of the other Barrel peeps call her The Wraith. I’m not saying they won’t know, I’m saying that it’s a thin veil of protection. Which could also explain why she’s staying away. To protect Kaz, Jesper and Wylan. To protect the Dregs and anyone in association with her. And they keep up the ruse to protect her.
Now while I might not know much about Nikolai, what I do know— it’s clear he would have already figured this out. He’s seen Inej (possibly) when she went to the embassy in CK and at the very least heard about her. He’s also been one to hide behind a false identity to do the work he needed to do and kept it going even after he took his position as King. So I feel he would know about concealing identities AND would have contacts in various places that could inform him about The Wraith. He also would know Kaz was aided by The Wraith and also helped find the Ghafas. So really, that’s that.
I do feel Kaz’s line is practiced. Never reveal anything, instead learn what the other knows.
I also think what Kaz says to Nikolai about “this is the problem with letting your enemies live” is quite telling. It’s ironic because it’s essentially what Kaz did so it could be about that (unlikely of course given what Inej did to ensure Pekka said bye bye bye) but I like to think it’s linked to what’s happening with Inej. Now ya yes, call me out, I haven’t read Nikolai’s duology so clearly I am missing alot. I did however read the chapters of ROW that featured the crows in it so when I read that line I kept thinking of what Nikolai had said about when the Wraith was last seen and why people were trying to find her.
She didn’t kill all her enemies. Death is too easy. She, like Kaz, chooses to destroy the big fishes brick by brick. Destroy them, break them, make it last. Set an example. Seek justice your way because no else is gonna get it for you. You and all those you fight for. However, in doing so, sometimes those damn assholes come back to make life difficult. They regroup and strike again. So really sometimes, you should let your enemies die.
That’s basically what I have been thinking about. That and Jesper’s line about “if Inej were here..” and Kaz saying “you can keep saying that but she isn’t. The best we can do is wait”. They know their crew functions better with her but they all have jobs to do and they can’t always be there to help each other out. Yet they will. They think about each other. They think about how to work the problem. They protect each other whether they’re physically together or not. I mean that’s why they’re all on this job right??
That coupled with the fact that Kaz already was 5 steps ahead knowing about the Suli, about Zoya and then the line about “the Suli never forget their own… just like crows”. (I know that was more about Zoya than anything and i’m not trying to take that away from her, just thinking about what prompts Kaz’s response) AND of course, let’s not forget the reason he even agreed to help them get what they needed was to get the device to help Inej…
LISTEN. LISTEN LINDAAA. I’m telling ya.
I’ve lost the purpose of this again. I got lost in thinking about Kanej and when they’ll be able to see/hear from each other again. Probably when Kaz gets that device to Inej.
Gosh. I really need that third book and I need it to be nice to us.
god the way gender operates in tlt is so fucking fascinating...like i have never seen so many different wlw gender expressions before in ANY media (maybe dykes to watch out for is the exception). But the fact that we can dissect and speculate about how femininity and masculinity play out within this world and among its characters is so fucking amazing. The fact that the complicated feelings of gender experienced by many lesbians is explored in tlt is so fucking healing i cannot believe we have this

did i sit down and comb through all update and character release dates, events, archon and story quests on genshin impact wiki until i could piece togethe something that can loosely be called the genshin impact timeline for the sake of a canon divergence fic that i may never write??
yes. yes, i did.
it may need a couple of tweaks since i'm not sure how meta i should make it (e.g. do i prioritise release dates or adventure ranks as reference points? i'm leaning towards the former at the moment), but it would make things easier to manage on the long run
So, I can’t explain this shortly but when you follow two blogs, A and B and like you follow A because they like the same media as you and blog B because they post funny things and you’re pretty sure they’ve never interacted and have little in common and then blog A reblogs something that originated at blog B. And the point I’m getting at: a bigger crossover then Infinity War
i went to this event where a string quartet performed songs from animes/video games and i am not a fan at all of how the lady/violist introduced the “sailor moon” song not as being from an anime that was watched by countless girls around the world growing up, but a series where high school boys have posters of the main protagonist's naked silhouette up on their bedroom walls.......
tfw you spend your last savings on your cat’s vet bill so you don’t have money to buy alcohol/weed to cope with the mourning process . guess we’re gonna be raw dogging reality in this bitch
((FUCK those stupid fucking zombies that Nemesis comes with.))
Oh I just had a really painful thought
When the hero was trying to think of someone who could make them clothes that could conceal their armour, did they think of Danyel as the one most likely to be able to do it because he's the Headmaster of Edelia....
...or because he's Tomix's brother?
processing... this may take a few minutes(years)

Agent Mobius and Loki just kept listing various disasters happening on Earth in the 2050's and I was just.. tired...
I mean, I know, irl, everything sucks and climate change will just keep making things worse. But I had a bit of hope that, in a world filled with aliens and futuristic tech and super heroes and all that jazz, we could have prevented a climate disaster.
The two of them are coated in Logan’s blood. Patton picks up Jane, trying to get her away from Logan’s newly dead body.
Patton, crying: Come on, Janey..
Jane, sobbing: MO-MOMMA!!
Something doesn’t feel right here.
Jane, sobbing: Mom..!
Logan seems to slow down.
Jane is scrambling out of the den.
