YA LIT MEME: [1/10] series or books → Before I fall by Lauren Oliver @lauren-oliver

“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it. But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is,  y   o   u     n   e   v   e   r     r   e   a   l   l   y    k   n   o   w ." 

I’ve noticed that whenever Elphaba belts a lot (Wizard and I, Defying Gravity and No Good Deed), it’s the times that is the least emotionally reserved and just shows all of her true emotions.

But in For Good, despite the fact that it is one of the most dramatic points in the musical, Elphaba doesn’t belt at all

because she’s trying to hide all of pain and sadness from Glinda to make sure she stays hidden and can move on with her life
