random kanej headcanon because yes
!! disclaimer: this is after Crooked Kingdom, both Kaz and Inej have healed a lot!!
one time Kaz was cold
his window was open, it was late October and the temperatures had gotten considerably lower
to top it all off a cold sea breeze flew through the window
Kaz could've of course closed the window, but he wanted some clear air
his door was locked, he had no appointments
Inej had been there in the morning and she left a sweater behind
it was knitted and colourful
Kaz would never have worn it, he ignored it as well as he could
but his gaze kept flying back to it
lying there, slumped over the chair in the corner
pink and blue and red and green
it looked soft and warm
"Fuck it." Kaz muttered and got up, walking over to the chair.
he stared at it for a very long time
he ran his fingers over it
it rlly was soft
he picked it up, the nice meadow scent of Inej hanging in the air
Kaz took a deep breath, looking around to check if maybe, just maybe anyone was looking
then he pulled the sweater over his head
it fitted him perfectly, the sleeves a bit too long which only meant it was way too oversized for Inej
it was soft and warmed him up and it felt nice against the skin, much nicer than the shirts and waistcoats he usually wore
he wrapped his arms around himself, a smile playing across his lips at the comfort he felt, a feeling distant to Dirtyhands
he closed his eyes and took another deep breath of the clear air, relaxing his tense muscles and overworked mind
that was when he noticed her
he swirled around, face to face with Inej, a small smile tugging on her lips
he just stared at her for a very long time, her smile spreading into a grin as she started laughing quietly
"I didn't say anything!"
"I've had a very funny day." Inej replied, her laughter getting louder. Kaz rolled his eyes, sighing.
"Okay, yes, I'm wearing your colourful sweater, I was cold." he muttered. Inej calmed her face, but he could still see the laughter on her eyes.
"I think you look adorable." Inej said, breaking back into the wide smile.
"Shut up, Inej."
"Oh, I'm sorry, am I hurting your reputation?"
"Shut up, Inej."
There was a silence, a long silence, a rain starting to fall down outside. Then Kaz leaned in, wrapping his arms around Inej gently. Inej smiled, leaning closer and with her consent Kaz hugged her tighter, burying his face in her neck. They stood in the embrace for a long time, the rain getting louder. Then, after a silent moment Inej mumbled:
"You know this isn't helping your case, it just makes you cuter."
"Shut up, Inej."

“This was the kiss he'd been waiting for. It was a gunshot. It was prairie fire. It was the spin of Makker's Wheel. Jesper felt the pounding of his heart - or was it Wylan's? - like a stampede in his chest.”

The Crows movie night
Once a month, the Crows meet at the Van Eck mansion for a movie night. As they can never agree on which movie to watch, everyone propose a title and Matthias or Inej, the least inclined to cheat, write the titles on a paper and put them in a bowl. Then they pick a paper and announce which movie they will watch this night.

She did not tell herself she wasn’t afraid. Long ago, after a bad fall, her father had explained that only fools were fearless. We meet fear, he'd said. We greet the unexpected visitor and listen to what he has to tell us. When fear arrives, something is about to happen.

Kaz: you know we're all made of atoms
Kaz: and technically atoms can't touch anything
Kaz: so we've never touched anything in our lives
Kaz: so to answer your question, Inej, no, I did not punch that guy

Okay so idk if this is a head cannon or actual cannon but I’ve always assumed that Kaz is an amplifier, and that’s why he can sense Inejs presence in his bones
Oh that is super interesting!! As far as I know that’s a head cannon, but it’s a super cool one! I love that!!! Thank you sm for sharing 🖤🖤📖📖

people say that Nikolai and Zoya have very different energies and that he's the ''good and silly one'', but they forget that Nikolai is the guy who cut off a man's fingers and use it fed the dogs, to demand respect.
