“Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.”  ― Winston Churchill

The Firelight of Maalda - Melissa Douthit Telling quotes from this book:

Location 96 on Kindle:
Their mission, assigned to them by Vlaad himself, was to squash the rumors that were circulating around the region and to create new rumors of their own, rumors that would do as much damage to this girl as she had done to them.

Loc 2607 on Kindle:
"What I did, I did for a reason. Now he, or she, knows that we are on to them and we are watching. He will be more careful, less likely to do something...unwise."

Because only Chalice's opinion is correct.

Loc 1825 on Kindle:
Not that she minded, she actually preferred it, but without realizing it, she had gotten used to the special treatment everyone had been giving her since her arrival

Chalice is speshul snowflake, y'all, and you must bow down to her.

Loc 3938 on Kindle:
"I don't care what they think of me and I don't care about my title. It's a title I never wanted. I also don't care about the law. Right now, what I care about is winning this war and before this is all over, I can guarantee you, I will break more laws than that!"

Loc 4680 on Kindle:

Loc 4899 on Kindle:
"And you forget your place! I am the First and you will follow my orders!"

And there you have it, people, from the mouth of Mary Sue Chalice herself.
