Ancillary Mercy - Ann Leckie

"Is Ekalu a lot like Lieutenant Awn?" (178)

 

I'm going to guess that a part of Seivarden still worries that Breq might get fed up with her and leave her behind one of these days. I don't think Breq would do that, or she'd have done it a long time ago, but I can understand why Seivarden might occasionally worry.

 

------------

 

There was no reason anyone would make any memorials to me, after my death. (200)

 

As awesome and perceptive as Breq tends to be, she consistently underestimates how much others care about her. Even now. I'm pretty sure that, if she said this out loud to her Kalrs or to Seivarden, they would have a thing or two to say about it.

 

------------

 

"I need to say, sir, none of us would ever call you it." (208)

 

Oh yes, the Kalrs would certainly have a few things to say.
