The Royal Palace of Jaunt Jolie was like being inside a giant fondant fancy, if the giant fondant fancy was in the oven, and everyone was in the oven, and the oven was in the desert, in direct sunlight.
And the fondant fancy sang.

His father’s spirit seems to finally be at peace, because he’s seen neither hide nor hair of him; no cryptic messages, no confusing dreams of statues and unburying, no more tasks or falling scrolls. A job well done, for the Once and Future King. He’s secured Tedros back on the throne. He can pat himself on the back and bobby off to the afterlife.

Now he’d sooner tell him to shove his Trial of Kings up his arsehole. But he can’t, because he’s dead, and permanently dead, at that.
post otk, tedros has rather a lot of things to sort through
