“I can walk into someone’s house, kiss their wife, sit down at their table, and eat their dinner. I can lift a passport at an airport, and in twenty minutes it will seem like it’s mine. I can be a blackbird staring in the window. I can be a cat creeping along a ledge. I can go anywhere I want and do the worst things I can imagine, with nothing to ever connect me to those crimes. Today I look like me, but tomorrow I could look like you. I could be you.

YA LIT MEME // Favorite Charater // Cassel Sharpe // Curse Workers

Lie until even you believe it - that’s the real secret of lying.

“You’re a little devil, Cassel Sharpe,” Grandad says under his breath.

Clever as the devil and twice as pretty. I force myself not to smile.

Girls like her turn into women with eyes like bullet holes and mouths made of knives. They are always restless. They are always hungry. They are bad news. They will drink you down like a shot of whisky. Falling in love with them is like falling down a flight of stairs. What no one told me, with all those warnings, is that even after you’ve fallen, even after you know how painful it is, you’d still get in line to do it again.
—  Black Heart (Holly Black)

What if everyone is pretty much the same and it’s just a thousand small choices that add up to the person you are? No good or evil, no black and white, no inner demons or angels whispering the right answers in our ears like it’s some cosmic SAT test. Just us, hour by hour, minute by minute, day by day, making the best choices we can.

The thought is horrifying. If that’s true, then there’s no right choice. There’s just choice.

My grandfather once warned me. Girls like her turn into women with eyes like bullet holes and mouths made of knives. They are bad news. Falling in love with them is like falling down a flight of stairs.
But what no one told me is that even after you’ve fallen, even after you know how painful it is, you just get in line to do it again.

you’ve got a black heart baby {listen} 

“But actually trusting someone when they have nothing to gain from me just doesn’t make sense.

All friendships are negotiations of power.”  

For the boy born into the life of crime who is going to thrive in it.
