You're the oldest ten year old I've ever met.
What's that supposed to mean?
It means I'm trying to justify myself the fact that the best lesson I ever had on chivalry came from someone five years younger than me.

Was this what was meant by the realm? Or was it other things? A little girl with a muddy doll, Burchard of Stone Mountain livid with grief and rage, a King who admitted a law was wrong, Lalasa in her bustling shop with pins in her mouth. If they were the realm, then so were griffons, sparrows, dogs ugly and beautiful, Stormwings, foul and sweet-tempered horses, Spidrens. If she owed duty to the realm then it was not the dry withered thing it sounded in peoples mouths. Duty was what was owed, good parts and bad, to keep the realm growing, to keep it as fair as life could be kept. Duty was an old man, snug in his fur lined robe, snoring lightly somewhere behind her.
