Book? Mira's Last Dance
speaker? YYY= Adelis
XXX= Penric
AAA= Nikys

Bonus: What is this person being asked to do?
Play the role of a woman,
Bonus: What role/job is BBB? :more specifically, a widow

But I don't think this constitues two separate bonuses. One 1/2 point is enough

All is well - I will give 1 1/2 points (getting this figured out), and the baton passes to you!

New quote
"I merely note, if you want to catch something, running after it isn't always the best way."


The " " mean this is a line actually uttered

By whom ?
To whom ?
In which book ?
What is "something" here ?

Bonus : Was there another "something" to which this sentence could have applied earlier ?
Human is as human does....Animals don't weep, Nine

A longer quote and a hint (in the formulation of the bonus)
XXX drank more tea. "I merely note, if you want to catch something, running after it isn't always the best way."
YYY cleared his throat, and drank his tea too.


The " " mean that this line is actually uttered by XXX to YYY

XXX ?
YYY ?
In which book ?
What does XXX mean by "something" here ?

Bonus : There is indeed another "something" to which this sentence could have applied earlier. In fact XXX is making fun of YYY because YYY ran after that other something and failed to catch it, but it was XXX who caught that other something without running.
So who/what is that other something ?
Human is as human does....Animals don't weep, Nine

Expanding the quote:
"Although when he invited me to come for AAA, I wasn't sure if it was hunting or social, and whether I should pack weapons or dresses."
BBB's smile sharpened. "Dresses are weapons, my dear, in sufficiently skilled hands. Permit us to introduce you to the rest of our ordnance team."


Who is BBB?
Who is the first speaker?
What book?

Bonuses:
1. When does BBB do something similar for another character, in similar circumstances?
2. Who is this done for?

Later comment from BBB regarding first speaker's prior choices in dresses:
"Take these back to CCC and tell him to hide them. Or better, burn them. Or anything, but do not under any circumstances allow them to fall into that young woman's hands again."


Who is BBB?
Who is the first speaker?
What book?

Bonuses:
1. When does BBB do something similar for another character, in similar circumstances?
2. Who is this other person who is prevented from making appalling choices?

Right person's sense of humor. Wrong speaker and book. … we don't give 1/3 points … so no points :cry:

If you want to argue with the god, go to the temple. Not that you'll get much save sore knees, but it'll spare my ears.

Expanding the quote somewhat
If you want to argue with the god, go to the temple. Not that you'll get much save sore knees, but it'll spare my ears. [small omission]
YYY cried aloud, “Wait, wait, what . . . Blessed, what does that mean?”
XXX eyed him glumly. “It means congratulations. You’re a sorcerer.”


Who says this (XXX)?
To whom (this is not YYY)?

"(...)" XXX temporized. "I will return your call shortly."
"How else?" YYY1 YYY2 murmured, with a small smile at his own wit.


Book ?
XXX ?
YYY ? (it appears as two words in the quote, but any nonambiguous designation will do, no need to give the exact wording)


If there is no answer in a reasonable time, I'll mention the beginnning of XXX's line, hidden here as (...)


Hint: YYY's "wit" can help to guess who XXX is.
