“The gold was a gift; you said so yourself.”
"You are a woman," Nahuseresh said very gently. "You do not understand the world of kings and emperors, you do not understand the nature of their gifts."
"Nahuseresh, if there is one thing a woman understands, it is the nature of gifts. They are bribes when threats will not avail. Your emperor cannot attack this coast unprovoked; the treaties with the greater nations of this Continent prevent him. All he can do is stir up an ugly three-way war and hope to be invited in as an ally, and I did not invite him.” The queen shook her head. “The problem with bribes, Nahuseresh, is that after your money is gone, threats still do not avail.”
Nahuseresh stared, seeing a queen he hadn’t guessed existed.

I have no idea who this is, but I love the expression on her face.

I also love “Marius, what’s wrong today?” because I always hear it like “What’s wrong today?”, which implies that there’s something wrong with Marius most days.

Which is, as we know, probably true.

I’ve been waiting for this gifset my whole life.

So I’m assuming at least 95% of tumblr is hearing this whole scene perfectly in their head, right?

the idea of people not hearing this in their head is inconceivable

I can’t even see the gifset and it’s playing in my head.

I’ve lost count how many times my family and I have watched this movie. We quote it by heart. So so good :)
