This is such a great story! Right before I read this, I was just considering the difference between Kote's successful defeat of the scraelings, versus his inability to fight off the bandits at the inn. Kote says he picked the time and place for the scraeling assault carefully, but it occurred to me that it might be more than that - the first time he was defending the entire town, as well as having Chronicler right there unable to fight for himself. The second time, he was the only one in real danger. So I think you're entirely right - the only real way for Kote to once again become Kvothe is for him to see someone he loves in danger. In fact, what if it's like when he was splitting his mind into pieces when he was a child? Part of him, the Kvothe part, is locked away, and it won't be released until he truly, wholeheartedly, wants to become Kvothe again. So far, even if he's been leaning slightly towards becoming more Kvothe-like, large chunks of him don't actually want that. We don't know exactly why he changed his name and moved to Newarre and became an innkeeper, but it was probably pretty bad. Yet now he sees Bast in danger, knows that Kvothe is the only one who can possibly save him, and he realizes that he truly does want to be Kvothe again. This probably isn't even conscious on his part, but as you say, it's like a switch is flipped, and he's back.

So all this is to say, my thoughts were heading along the exact same lines, and then I read your story and realized you had captured them exactly - except far better, and far more truly to the books, than I had been considering. Excellent job, and I think that was an absolutely perfect ending!

(A sequel where we see all those villagers' reactions to their mild-mannered innkeeper calling the name of the wind, pretty please?)

You should definitely write another chapter. After all, the rest of the town has got to have some thoughts about what 'Kote' just did :)

I really, really liked this. And it would be absolutely fantastic if there could be at least another chapter showing the reaction of the town people. For some reason I think Old Cob's reaction in particular would be worth it. :D

That was awesome! More please! :D
If the real book ended this way I would be really happy :P
I love your style and the idea was great, too! Thanks :)

It's such a delight to read these kind of stories while waiting for the third book. Thank you thank you. Really good work, too. Keeps to the atmosphere Rothfuss created in TNOTW and TWMF. This is just like I imagine and hope that things will proceed like. Kvothe suddenly using his powers again and we'll find out how truly awesome he his... even if he denies it. XD

Great little fic! :)

Hooray! Just what I needed while we wait for the third book. A little Bast H/C makes me happy.

Do you write ANYTHING that isn't absolutely increadable? I mean... Wow.

Bast, as usual, was amazing.

As for Kvothe getting his powers back, I can believe the disclaimer to "Trice Locked Chest"? I think that might just do it. Anyway, this is fantastic.
