“'You are a terrifying creature,' the Voice told her solemnly. 'You do not take your place in your father's tent, letting men make your decisions. You ride as a man, you fight as a man, and you think as a man-'
‘I think as a human being,’ she retorted hotly. ‘Men don’t think any differently from women - they just make more noise about being able to.’”
— The Woman Who Rides Like a Man, by Tamora Pierce

Ok but like

I know tortall is at peace or whatever but does it seem weird to anyone else that they just let Alanna and her fellow new knights just *go adventuring*? I mean, they spent all these resources and a solid 7 years educating these guys and then they just are free? I feel like more realistically the ones who didn’t have a feif/barony/whatever to go look after would be compelled to train others or generally knight around court

Or something?

Also I am now rereading Lioness Rampant and… were Liam and Roger involved at some point? It would explain how Liam knew about Roger before he made a name for himself at court, and would also indicate that Roger has a thing for redheads.

Nawat is trying so hard to court Aly using crow rules and it’s adorable. C’mon, Aly. What woman wouldn’t swoon at the prospect of a dude regurgitating partially chewed food into her mouth?
