“I’ll cut your throat, that’ll shut you up.”
Haven’t been on tumblr in awhile, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t post my newest obsession here as well. Enjoy Inej and Kaz in that iconic scene from Princess Mononoke.

“A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from the Barrel who had become something worse.”
The Crows at the beginning of Six of Crows and at the end of Crooked Kingdom. I wanted to draw hands and it grew into something more. The designs are inspired by both the show and the books.
ID under the cut.
[ID: Three picture, the first is a looping gif of the other two. The second is a digital drawing of the six Crows' hands on a table in a circle, above a map. In the first drawing, the map is the Ice Court. Clockwise, Wylan is holding a pen and drawing on the map with one hand and holding a grenade with the other. Jesper has three playing cards and a revolver. Matthias has shackles around his wrists and bloody knuckles, and he’s pointing at something on the map. Nina is holding a heart, wearing the Crows and a rose tattoo. Kaz’s hands are gloved, one on his crow headed cane and the other holding a coin with a crow on it. Inej has three throwing knives in one hand and a dagger in the other. There are other coins scattered around the picture.
In the third image, the map is Ketterdam. Wylan is still holding a pen and his other hand is clasped with Jesper’s. Jesper has his revolver. Matthias’s hands are shackle free but they’re ghostly, and one of them is on Nina’s hand. Nina’s other hand holds a human bone. Kaz has his left glove in his right hand, above his cane, and his left hand is ungloved and brushing against Inej’s hand. Inej still has her dagger in the other hand, which has a ship etched onto the blade. End ID]

I feel like the "Kaz pushes Inej away bc he thinks he's not enough for her" trope that I see a lot in fics is kind of a big misread of Kaz's character and leans too far into the standard "sad bad boy" character type. Kaz calls Inej "lovely and brave and better than anything he deserved" but a lot of people seem to forget the very next line where he says he's "not so broken that he couldn’t pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her."
Like, Kaz sees that Inej is better than he deserves, and his response to that isn't "I should treat her like shit so she'll give up on me", it's "challenge fucking accepted." If you tell him a safe is uncrackable, he won't stop until he's cracked it, and if you tell him he's not good enough for the girl he loves, he'll spend the rest of his life trying to be.
