Eliza:
What is the longest relationship you’ve had?
I guess… Owen? I was with him for just under a year before… before he was killed.
If you could switch lives with Moshe if you could?
No. I wouldn’t want him to ever have to experience what I did.
What would it take to get to to permanently kill Moshe and Granuaile?
I… I don’t know. I guess… if I found out they were trying to hand me back over to that pantheon, but… they wouldn’t.
If you could only save one, would you save Moshe or Granuaile? (Noting that Moshe would stay dead.)
…..I’d save Moshe. I’ve known him longer, and… he knows me a lot better. But I won’t have to choose, right?

Ilona:
What would it take to make you betray Genevieve?
If I found out Hyde would take over for good… betraying her would be less painful than what Hyde would do.
What is the thing you’re proudest of, as yourself or Hyde?
Well… I guess I’m pretty good at shooting, which I… learned as Hyde, technically.
If you could, would you get rid of Hyde forever?
If I could? Gladly, in a heartbeat.
Would you ever cheat on Genevieve?
Never. At least, not as myself.

Eyre:
Do you regret keeping your child?
I… I don’t know. Right now, no. But I’m scared that… that I might one day.
If you could get rid of your curse, what is the first sin you would intentionally commit?
….I would rather not say, but… probably nothing extreme. Maybe stop attending church.
Who is the best person you know other than yourself?
Carl, without a doubt. He- He’s so kind, and… Unless, of course, this means how well I know the person? In which case… still Carl, probably. I don’t really have a lot of friends.
Do you genuinely believe that most of the sins you’ve committed should be counted as sins?
I do not know. Some seem a bit petty to punish, but… it’s not my decision.

Chris:
Who’s the best lover you’ve ever had?
Amelia, by far. Not to say my other lovers were bad, just…
Would you visit Amelia’s time if you could?
I don’t know. I mean, sure, some things sound pretty good, but… Well, I’m content in this time.
Do you believe in fate?
Not really, no.
Do you ever consider the possibility that Amelia is leading you on, seducing to for some larger purpose?
I didn’t-
Do you ever feel daunted knowing how many more people, spread across all of time, Amelia had been with than you?
….you need to stop this.

Bas:
What would it take to make you betray/cheat on Tom?
I’d only do it if it meant saving his or Miriam’s life. Though I can’t see how that would happen.
Would you pull the plug on Miriam of it came down to it?
I… I guess I would. I’ve seen what it’s like, to be only living on life support, and…
How would you react if you found out one of your parents was still alive?
I don’t know? I guess I’d probably cry, maybe.

“I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh: it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God’s feet, equal — as we are.”

FUCK, MARRY, GET DRUNK WITH

Deya: Nick, Daniel, Atticus

Marry Nicholas, obviously. Fuck Atticus, and get drunk with Daniel. Only because my tolerance is much stronger than his ever was and I’d gladly rip his fucking heart out while he was passed out on the floor.

Eyre: Carl, Barbatos, Jeremiah

I- Um… If I… had to choose, I’d rather be married to Carl than any of the others. Just because… he’s my best friend, and I know him best- And I… I’ve already willingly slept with Barbatos, so… And so guess that leaves getting drunk with Jeremiah, but only if Barbatos and Carl were both also there.

Eleanora: Michael, Delilah, Jeremiah

That is really cruel, for one- But I’d rather fuck and marry both Michael and Delilah. A lot of cultures support polygamous marriages, so I mean, why not? And… I’ve still never been drunk, but if he was suddenly susceptible to confessions, I wouldn’t mind getting drunk with Jeremiah. Entirely innocent reasons, obviously.

Tatiana: Damian, Dayan, Nico

First and second for Damian. Last for Dayan. None for Nico, unless someone adds an option to stab.

“My name is Eyre, and I am destined to be a hero. I used to be called Jane but I changed my name when I was seven. No story has a heroine called Jane. That would be silly. I have beautiful red hair down to my legs and beautiful legs down to the floor. My eyes are purple because purple is a mysterious, magical colour and that’s how you know I have a Destiny. I’m probably part dragon or something.

I can hear my mother calling me so I have to go soon. Doesn’t she know I’m too busy to gut fish? I have to practise mixing potions and reading maps and saying “I’ll talk to you later” in my most dismissive voice. You know, hero stuff. Soon I’m going to go traveling across the land and I’ll meet my Destiny. I’ll know it when I see it because it’ll be the thing everyone keeps telling me I have to do except they’ll say I can’t do it until I’ve fetched their missing axe or killed a wolf or set them up with a villager or something.”

whiteraven16  asked:

I missed out on reading some really good books though out high school. So I was wondering what are some book that everyone should read at least once? You know the MUST HAVE read books

I missed out on some of those in high school, too… and I haven’t caught up with all of them in the (many) years since high school. Yesterday I mentioned my Top 10 recommended books, but I wouldn’t say all of those are MUST READ books. (I mean, I think they are, but it would be a little short-sighted to categorize all my favorite books as “must reads.”) I think books everyone should read are those that are widely discussed and can help you connect with other readers; books that are consistently referred to in other books. So I’ll give you a list of 10 I think are must reads, but I really hope my followers will chime in and add to this list. 

In no particular order (off the top of my head): 

The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë
Don Quixote - Miguel de Cervantes
Hamlet - William Shakespeare
Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy
Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck
The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy
1984 - George Orwell

Ugh, so hard to keep this list at 10. Help me out here, followers!
