Katharina: Where would YOU bringt it then?
Shara: Just ... somewhere far away. Where nobody would look. I could take him and just ... GO FAR AWAY.
Katharina: <sighs> We can't just let you walk away with a POWERFUL, SENTIENT and POTENTIALLY UNSTABLE artifact, Shara!
Shara: Well ... you could come with us?
Katharina: Still a bad idea. Also, wouldn't that make me a third wheel ... ?
Shara: <grins> ... don't worry, I'd keep making out with the sword to a minimum.
Katharina: PLEASE tell me that's not what you have been doing with him when you're down there.
Shara: You KNOW there's always you and at least two other people watching me when I see him. Kinda KILLS THE MOOD.
Katharina: HEH, I can Imagine.
<They walk alongside each other for a while, in silence>
Katharina: ... did you talk to Pesh before he left?
Shara: No. He was in a hurry to report what we found to his guys in Soaleyvin. Thought they'd be interested. So ... y'know. Prepare for THEM to be at your doorstep, sooner or later.
Katharina: Did he ask you to come with him again?
Shara: Yeah.
Katharina: And how did he take it that you ...
Shara: POORLY.



Alt-text: "Kat is learning from Shara. Specifically how to deflect an uncomfortable topic by diverting to make-out jokes."

Pesh and Shara talked about her going back to Soaleyvin with him before. It didn't go especially well.

  1. Minor Error: extra “t” on Katharina’s first speech bubble.

    Been fascinating seeing how these two’s relationship developed over the years. I appreciate their built in flaws, makes them more human. On a different not I am cheering on Katharina’s relationship with Book, but I’m weary of Shara’s towards the sword. I wonder how much of her feelings for it are sincere or simply the result of her nostalgia for Gideon. Hell I don’t even know if her and Gideon’s relationship was healthy to begin with.

    1. Thanks for pointing the typo out, should be fixed now!

      As for the rest, those are some very good questions to ask … ;) I’m glad you like it so far!
