XXX shook (their) head, (their) expression growing inward, as if looking into long memory. "No. That wasn't courage, just a kind of numbness. It was like I'd lost all affinity with the world. Now, though...oh gods, I care so much I can't hardly breath."

Book?
XXX?
Who is XXX speaking to?

By "their" I assume you mean "his" or "her" or "its" (in case XXX were a betan herm or a cetagandan ba if the quote were in the Vorkosiverse) but there is only one speaker, right ?

You are correct.

XXX shook (their) head, (their) expression growing inward, as if looking into long memory. "No. That wasn't courage, just a kind of numbness. It was like I'd lost all affinity with the world. Now, though...oh gods, I care so much I can't hardly breath." (They) dotted kisses all across (their) face, quick, frantic pecks. "And I'm scared spitless."

Just guessing . I absolutely do not remember this exchange and I am not going to reread ALL of TSK to find it.
XXX sounds like Dag. He can only be opening his heart this way to Fawn.
Even to her he would not speak like that in TSK1, most definitely. Besides, this change of vision, caring again, came from his love for her, and had to take time.
Probably not in TSK2, I estimate 5% max.
Not impossible in TSK3, say, another 25% or so.
My best guess is TSK4, when Dag's psychological state had even more time to develop, 70% probability.

Do I get 3/4 of a :sherlock: ? Or just 1/4 ?

Well, I'll be away 2 weeks. I might have internet there, but maybe not.
So if I win this quote, I'm offering the next one to any player, on a first come, first serve, basis.
If I do have internet there, I might offer a quote myself (first come, first serve) but don't wait for me !
