Okay but seriously real talk. Literally there were just so many beautiful quotes is Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.

- “The problem with my life was that it was someone else’s idea.”

- “Birds exist to teach us about the sky.

- “There are worse things in the world than a boy who likes to kiss other boys.”

- “How could I ever be ashamed of loving Dante Quintana?”

- “I got to thinking that poems were like people. Some people you got right off the bat. Some people you just didn’t get - and never would.”

- “I bet you could sometimes find all the mysteries of the universe in someone’s hand.”

LIKE WTF THIS BOOK IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND DEEP AND JUST SO WONDERFUL

i always hoped that in the end, you’d love me back and maybe we’d be happy together.
—  but this isn’t a fairytale and i don’t think i’ll ever get that happy ending.

YA LIT MEME: Three Endings,

↳  THE RAVEN CYCLE  by Maggie Stiefvater. [1/3]

Back at the Barns, Ronan thought about all the things he liked and didn’t like about Cabeswater, and what he would do differently if he was to manifest it now. What would give it more protection against a threat in the future, what would make it better able to connect with other places like Cabeswater on the line, what would make it a truer reflection of himself.  

Then, holding these things in his head, he climbed up on to the roof and gazed up at the sky. 

Then he closed his eyes and he began to dream.

YA LIT MEME: Three Endings.

↳  ALL FOR THE GAME  by Nora Sakavic. [2/3]

Better than that bright future was what he already had: a court that would always be home, a family who’d never give up on him, and Andrew, who for once hadn’t wasted their time denying that this thing between them might actually mean something to both of them. Neil hadn’t even noticed the silence at first, too distracted by his dizzying thoughts. Now he couldn’t help but smile and pull Andrew in.    

This was everything he wanted, everything he needed, and Neil was never letting go.

Complete A Story

Literally write the story. It doesn’t have to be good. It can be terrible. It’s only the first draft, keep this in mind.

When we write with perfection in mind, the words won’t come cause we don’t always know what perfect would be. It’s alright. Perfection CAN come later.

It’s a lot easier to make something okay into something amazing than it is to create something amazing from scratch.
