1) MATTHIAS'S LAST CHAPTER HURT ME. NINA SCREAMING HURT ME.
INEJ TELLING HER SHE HAS TO LET HIM GO HURT ME. I HURT.
I actually knew about it before I even started Six of Crows, so in a way I was much better prepared than those whom it came as a total shock at the end. YET I STILL COULDN'T STOP CRYING. It's been a long time since a book made me shed tears and oh did I shed tears 😭
I WANTED THEM TO BE HAPPY. They deserved to be happy. Oh, Matthias. *sobbing*.
2) That last scene with Kaz & Inej? PERFECTION. Perfection, I tell you! It was... and... I... just... WOW. I have to admit considering how little they interacted through most of the book - barring a very very good scene where he dressed her wounds - I didn't expect much from them at the end, since I heard they aren't even considered to be together at the end. And maybe that's technically true but THE BOY HELD HER HAND PEOPLE, he freaking held her hand, gave her a ship, brought her parents to her, and then agreed to meet them and was flustered if he looked alright. *Kyaaa*.
“I promise, Matthias. I'll take you home."
"Nina," he said, pressing her hand to his heart. "I am already home.”
