I don't know whether to feel sorry for Fitz or not.
Like when Chade is angry because Fitz expected there to be strings attached to him helping with Haps apprenticeship.
Of course he thought so – there have been strings attached to almost everything in his life.
Or when Chade assumes Fitz knows everything about the Skill despite knowing Fitz was never trained and even knowing what Galen did to him.
Fitz has been badly used for other peoples purposes with rarely a thought to how he might feel.
Then he goes in full whining mode and I just want to slap him.
Old or not, I think Chade is just an asshole.
