The Empress by prismageek The Empress by prismageek
An unmentioned moment in the books where Empress Kalasin learns of Keladry of Mendalin (my spelling is terrible today sorry) being awarded her knighthood.

I imagine Kalasin had to take a minute to decide how she felt about another girl achieving her childhood dream; whether she was disappointed how her life had taken a different direction, or happy that someone had the guts and the ability to work for something she thought worth fighting for.

GAUZY. :XD:

Pardon my question if you please. What if Empress Kalasin as the ruler of my fictionalized country of Mozambique where it is populated by talking dinosaurs and humans especially immortal humans and best friend of Marisol H. W. Chow my OC for The Dinosaur Mozambique Chronicles?

I think I understand. Empress Kalasin is not my property, she belongs to Tamora Pierce. So I can't really say.

This is beautiful! I especially love the clothes, they look amazing.

I really really really hope Tamora Pierce writes about Kally in a future book - or maybe Kally's daughter in the future???? I'd be ok with that too!

This is beautifully done.~ Her expression is absolutely perfect (I'd be unsure how to feel if some giant girl achieved my childhood dream, too. And got to interact with my family while I was married to a foreign power. No offense to Kaddar) and the detail on her sandals! So pretty. I hope we get to see more of her in future books.

Really nicely done--I knew who it had to be the moment I saw it--and perfectly thought out. It really was a little bitter for her to learn that someone else had done what she had set out to do.

Thank you very much!

I think either in Keladry's or Allie's book they mention Kalasin's marriage, or betrothal.

Sometimes Jon deserves to die :( mostly when he does things behind Thayet's back.

Haha, I don't like the decision either, but it was a conflict between being both a king and a father.

I believe they mention her marriage in the Trickster series, but it could've happened earlier... actually it probably did happen in Kel's now that I think about it, since that's when Cricket is introduced.

Kalasin is a side character mostly, her biggest part is in Wildmage, when Daine is at Pirate's Swoop, but I believe she is at least mentioned in Keladry's quartet, as well as the Trickster books.

I'll try to get one together sometime, though I may hold out until I get a video camera, taking pictures at different stages is very time consuming, and I always end up forgetting a step :(
