Robin Hobb herself wrote "Here the tale begins" in my copy of Assassin’s Apprentice and I’m about 90% sure I’m getting that as a tattoo.

The other option is "Wolves have no kings" but it wouldn’t be in her handwriting and that’d suck.

Very little worth knowing is taught by fear.

  • Fool: Fitz fitz fice fitz. Fatz sfitz. Fitz! Fitz fix fice fitz. Fats sfitzes.
  • Fitz: Fitz. Fitz, that's me. Yes. My name is Fitz, are you lost?
  • Fool: Fitz! Fitz fitzes fyces fitz. Fatzafices.
  • Fitz: It's all right. Come along, then.Come along. I'll show you the way back home. All right? Don't be afraid now. Come along now.
  • Fool: No. Listen to me, you idiot. Fitz fixes fyces fitz. Fatsafices.
  • Fitz: What?
  • Fool: I said Fitz fixes fyce fitz. Fat suffices.
  • Fitz: Wait! What does all that fitzy-ficeys stuff mean? Are you making fun of me?
  • Fool: Hardly. Fitz fixes feists fits. Fat suffices. It's a message, I believe. A calling for a significant act. As you are the only one I know who endures being called Fitz, I believe it's for you. As to what it means, how should I know? I'm a fool, not an interpreter of dreams. Good day.

All that night, I cradled him in my arms, as closely as if he were my child or my lover. As closely as if he were my self, wounded and alone. I held him while he wept, and I held him after his weeping was done. I let him take whatever comfort he could in the warmth and strenght of my body. I have never felt less of a man that I did so.

In that last dance of chances
I shall partner you no more.
I shall watch another turn you
As you move across the floor.

In that last dance of chances
When I bid your life goodbye
I will hope she treats you kindly.
I will hope you learn to fly.

In that last dance of chances
When I know you’ll not be mine
I will let you go with longing
And the hope that you’ll be fine.

In that last dance of chances
We shall know each other’s minds.
We shall part with our regrets
When the tie no longer binds.

The Liveship Traders trilogy isn’t as popular as the Farseer books on the tumblr-tag. Can’t even find anything when I type ‘Althea Vestrit’…

I love it when characters in books really develop. You can dislike them at first, but fall completely in love with them later. Or visa versa. When that happens, you know you’re reading a decent book.
