It's time for the Footnotes linkup, hosted by the blogs mentioned up there ^.
This month's prompt:
A quote that makes you laugh
As soon as I read this a quote popped into my mind and I knew that was the one. But do you think it's on Goodreads?
So then I got the book out and scanned through it for about an hour trying to find the blasted obscure scene where said quote occurs.
Couldn't find it.
So then I started over thinking and decided maybe I should just use a quote from Will Herondale and call it good, or some dry morbid sarcasm from Four. Sage/Jaron is always full of whit, and Kaz seems to be darkly funny. I wracked my brain, but I don't think Murtagh has ever said anything funny.
But I gave up on them. I wanted that quote.
I found some other funnies while skiming and scanning.
"The Art Magicke has rules. It means I have to teach you all my tricks. All the substitutions, the replications, the illusions. How to read minds and palms and leaves. How to disappear and reappear."
"How to saw people in half?"
And Finn sat up and rubbed his dirty hair. "You could have done it."
"Well yes, I could." Keiro smiled. "But then, I'm extraordinary, Finn, an artist of theft. Devastatingly handsome, utterly ruthless, totally fearless."
"Scowl, and stay silent, brother. It's what you're good at."
And none of those are it. And I'm sick of looking, so I'll just rehearse it from my memory of seven or eight years ago.
It's from Incarceron by Catherine Fisher (honestly, it could be in the sequel, Sapphique, I don't know)
The ever amazing sass master, Keiro, just stole three skull rings from some big time dude I'm prison, and his buddy Finn wants his cut.
Keiro hands home one and says
"One for you, two for me. Even as always."
And I'm still laughing.
