Examples from texts

Тетушка Бриджит точно не знала, кто отец Мораг – характерный результат непринужденных отношений внутри Общины и одна из тех пресловутых особенностей, что играют на руку репортерам, сочиняющим о нас сенсацию за сенсацией.
Aunt Brigit was never entirely sure who Morag's father was, which is a not uncommon result of the Community's informality, and one of those unfortunate trends which can help give credence to the more sensationalistic media reports about us.

Я думаю, Вэнион, тебе стоит сходить во дворец и заявить на Совете, что собираешься вывести из Замка всех пандионцев для ремонта монастыря. Энниас будет думать, что ты играешь ему на руку.
If you were to go to the palace and tell the council that you're going to take all your knights and go and repair that cloister, Annias would think you're playing right into his hands.
