i talk about music a lot, & have a tendency to post songs that are stuck in my head in the hope that they will get stuck in your head instead. you're welcome.
Seriously tho. It’d be pretty damn epic.
i am just picturing the sass-off with hearts in my eyes.
Lord Wyldon of Cavall, in Page by Tamora Pierce
[i love everyone and everything in these books, and have in fact spent the last few hours rolling around on my bed and shrieking into a pillow about how great everyone is, BUT CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT WYLDON FOR A MINUTE? this prayer wasn’t just for the assholes who kidnapped lalasa and jump, it was for himself. he had already been setting aside his own prejudices in his treatment of kel, but i think this is the moment it went from “maybe kel can be a knight” to “maybe ladies can be knights.” and it’s hard for him to accept that! change is scary! his duty as a knight has always been to protect ladies, and now his duty means sometimes endangering them, and that’s hard to deal with. i get it! but instead of saying he won’t change or deciding that kel- who goes above and beyond his training- is some kind of exception, he seeks help from a higher power and encourages all of the pages and squires under his command to do the same. it’s a hard thing to admit you were wrong, and to do so in such a public way says so much about wyldon’s sense of honor.]
