“We build up pretty pictures of men, when we want to be in love. We hate to have them ruined.”
— Tricksters Choice by Tamora Pierce

"Curiosity killed the cat," Fesgao remarked, his dark eyes unreadable.

Aly rolled her eyes. Why did everyone say that to her? “People always forget the rest of the saying,” she complained. “And satisfaction brought it back.”

tiny Provost’s Dog fic:

tanoraqui:

"Hey, Sabine!" a particularly prat of a knight shouts out from an outdoor tavern table as she and Tunstall stroll through one of the nicer parts of Corus. "Does your dog do tricks?"

Mattes starts to glare but she just pulls him closer and calls back with a  wicked grin, “Sometimes I make him beg!”

The knight sputters as the two walk on without a backward glance. It’s a lovely evening. Birds other than pigeons are making noise.

Day 4 Favorite Animal Character

Unlike the other questions so far, this had no debate. I didn’t have to ponder. I wasn’t worried about forgetting someone I like better. There is no doubt or question.

I love Achoo.

Achoo is the very epitome of a believably, yet probably slightly magical, dog. Everything about her is something I have seen in my own beloved furballs. The apologetic look and sounds when they need to relieve themselves. The absolute dancing joy of GOING somewhere, DOING something, PLAYING. The pitiful begging eyes of a puppy who wants a treat, you’ve been STARVING me, I KNOW I just had dinner 20 minutes ago but just LOOK at that MEAT. The affection and trust in a dog’s eyes. The comfort that comes from cuddling, or having them lick your face when you cry.

And Achoo is a scent hound, a little too intelligent, and little too competent to be completely believable but absolutely perfect in the world of Tortall, especially with Pounce around.

I need an Achoo. I will have her for my pet and we will live my adoptive father Myles. Please?

Tortall High School AU where Beka Cooper is a Hall Monitor and Farmer Cape is one of those kids who does monitor duty on Wednesdays (when school is let out early) and basically they pass each other notes with things like “DO YOU LIKE ME Y/Y/ABSOLUTELY” and draw hearts around each other’s names in glitter pen all over their notebooks.

"What kind of name is Farmer, anyway?"

Master Farmer grinned. He looked like a very looby. “It’s my mage name.”

"Mithros’s spear, what kind of cracknob picks a mage name like Farmer?"

The mage shrugged. “Most of the mages that taught me would say I acted like I had my feet in the furrows and my head in the hayloft. I thought maybe there was something powerful, them thinking the same thing, so I took Farmer as a mage name.” He looked at me. “I’ve been wondering lately, though, do you think mayhap they were making fun of me?”
