Guess the Book, round 2: the answers!

Right, you've had your week and it's time for the results!

  1. But, that armour is just for show...
    You should know by now, Dilaf. Nothing I do is just for show.
    Dilaf and Hrathen, Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
    Guessed by ladyofastolat
  2. I need an election adjusted.
    How adjusted?
    As a cautious estimate? I need it rigged from top to bottom.
    Patience and Jean, The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch
    Guessed by ariskari
  3. What fate? Burn your hearts, what fate?
    To marry the Daughter of the Nine Moons!
    To die and live again, and live once more a part of what was!
    To give up half the light of the world to save the light of the world!
    Mat and the Aelfinn, The Wheel of Time: The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan
    Guessed by rustica
  4. But if I change back, it'll take me at least half the night to make a new Charter-skin. We'll miss dinner - and the midnight rounds.
    Some things are worth missing dinner for.
    Lirael and the Disreputable Dog, Lirael by Garth Nix
    Guessed by rustica
  5. You were Will's age then, up on your mountain. And you saw me... riding.
    Riding on the wind.
    Merriman and John Rowlands, Silver on the Tree by Susan Cooper
    Guessed by ladyofastolat
  6. To know what would have happened, child? No. Nobody is ever told that. But anyone can find out what will happen.
    Aslan, The chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian by C. S. Lewis
    Guessed by ariskari
  7. Barbecued billygoats!
    Nancy Blackett, Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome
    Guessed by rustica
  8. Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!
    The Red Queen, Through the Looking-glass by Lewis Carroll
    Sort-of guessed by ladyofastolat (you did get it right, I just fail at reading LJ comments)
  9. You know, Lieutenant, I've seen the summary of the Board of Inquiry. The final paragraph specifically notes that you are not to be in command of any combat vessel until such time as you have demonstrated competence in relevant training exercises. Yet I find that your citation says you took command of the vessel Antberd's Axe which subsequently engaged enemy vessels in a hostile encounter. Your commander praises your initiative, when I would think he should condemn your blatant disregard of the findings of that Board of Inquiry. Do you have anything to say, Lieutenant?
    Well, sir, my recollection is that the Board said I should not command any R.S.S. combat vessels until further training... it didn't say anything about Bloodhorde ships.
    Admiral Foxworth and Lieutenant Suiza, Once a Hero by Elizabeth Moon
  10. That sentry ship attack a few minutes ago. You were able to tell from that that those were Elomin ships?
    Learn about art, Captain. When you understand a species' art, you understand that species.
    Captain Pellaeon and Grand Admiral Thrawn, Star Wars: Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn

And now to see who guessed the most:

ariskari: 2 points
ladyofastolat: 2.5 points 3 points (I fail at reading LJ comments)
rustica: 3 points

Well, the joint winners are ladyofastolat and rustica! Congratulations, you both win at the internet!
