Astrid: It’s okay. I’ve been thinking about that recently myself. And I can promise you that my next saga will be . . . different.

In the meantime, would you like a signed book? I have so many of these, I could build a new wing of the house with them.

Hyacinth: I didn’t follow most of that, but YES!

Astrid (thinking): What should my next saga be about? All I know is, it can’t be anything like the one Lord Imri wants me to write. And if my editors don’t like it . . . Well, if any author in Sønheim can afford to start a new publishing house for the sake of one saga, I can.

Maybe I’ll include a rough-mannered Ceannic girl in the cast. Not as the main character, of course. But she could can give the heroine simple-yet-wise advice at a key moment . . .

Did Hyacinth just assist in creating the first in-universe example of the “black best friend” trope?

Also, I’m trying to figure out whether what Astrid is saying is meant to be an allusion to some work in particular, or just the trope in general…

The trope in general 🙂 There’s not enough detail for it to be a takeoff on a specific series…
