"This is Slayer," I said, holding the saber so they could see it clearly. The saber seethed, and luminescent tendrils of smoke clung to its blade. "It has had many names. One of them was Wolfripper. Push me and I'll show you how it got that one."
LOVE this scene.
I especially love how Kate takes responsibility for her actions - it's one of the first things that made me fall in love with her. I liked how kick-ass she was before that. Her smart, snarky mouth endeared her to me. But it was her ability to admit her mistakes - her sense of responsibility and her willingness to take the responsibility for things she's done that made me LOVE her.
