favourite book quote

  • Alec [about Camille]: Does she still love you?
  • Magnus: I don't think so. She wasn't very pleasant the last time I saw her. Of course, that could be because I've got an eighteen-year-old boyfriend with a stamina rune and she doesn't.
  • Alec: *sputters*
  • Alec: As the person being objectified, I ... object to that description of me.
What are you going to do with your life?“ In one way or another it seemed that people had been asking her this forever; teachers, her parents, friends at three in the morning, but the question had never seemed this pressing and still she was no nearer an answer… "Live each day as if it’s your last’, that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to be good and courageous and bold and to make difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance.

The mother heard her. Somehow the queen’s voice cut through the woman’s ravaged wits. Her slack face twisted in loathing. “Whore!” she shrieked. “Kingslayer’s whore! Brotherfucker!” Her dead child dropped from her arms like a sack of flour as she pointed at Cersei. “Brotherfucker brotherfucker brotherfucker.” - Tyrion IX, ACoK

“M’lady,” said the big man. “Here she is.”
“Aye,” added the one-eyed man. “The Kingslayer’s whore.
She flinched. “Why would you call me that?”
“If I had a silver stag for every time you said his name, I’d be as rich as your friends the Lannisters.”
“That was only … you do not understand …”
“Don’t we, though?” The big man laughed. “I think we might. There’s a stink of lion about you, lady.” 
- Brienne VIII, AFfC

It seems some of our imaginative peers suppress their artistic instincts out of fear of being judged, alienated, or just plain not good enough. In other cases, a parent, teacher, or friend has been dismissive about creative ambitions. Don’t let that suffocate your vision. More often than not, people won’t share your vision or hunger, but that’s all right. Ambitions are individual. Art is subjective. Creativity often leads to the solo pursuit of a dream until you find like-minded people who get it. Who get you. - Connor Franta.

“Arya, the lone wolf, still lived, but the wolves of the pack had been taken and slain and skinned.”
Vengeance for her pack burned within her, she’d set the Seven Kingdoms on fire to light the emptiness they left in her heart🐺

I think my favourite part in ACOMAF was

/spoilers/

when Tamlin lunges for Feyre (in Hybern) and Feyre’s basically trapped under a spell suppressing her magic.

And Feyre’s like, “NO,” “NUH UNH,” “NOT HAPPENING,” “NEVER AGAIN.” She immediately lifts the spell on herself and winnows away.

Leaving Tamlin to stumble (and probably fall.)

BUT WE’RE NOT DONE YET.

Rhys is simultaneously under the same magic-suppressing spell. He’s also supporting his best-friend-for-life, Azriel, stand (who’s bleeding to death.)

Rhys charges towards Tamlin, while Tamlin lunges towards Feyre, and Feyre winnows away to safety. ALL WHILE POOR AZRIEL FALLS PROBABLY (had Mor not been there to replace Rhys as a wall of support.😘)

And why does Rhys abandon Az?

To punch Tamlin in the face.

Feyre’s gone. Feyre’s safe.

But, Rhys is all like, “HANG ON, HOLD MY JACKET GUYS, HOLD MY BLEEDING FRIEND, TAMLIN HOW DARE YOU EXIST IN THE SAME ROOM AS MY MATE, LOOK AT ME WHEN I’M TALKING TO YOU-”

(This probably makes me a terrible person. Yes, I accept.)

The daylight has nothing to show me, since you are not here.
