“We’ve done something none of our parents have even come close to. We didn’t take over their boring world; we took over a world about a thousand times tougher. If we walk out of this alive, we won’t have to bow our heads to anyone. There’ll be guys who were in wars hearing what we did and thinking, ‘Whoa.’ You and me, we can say, ‘You got yourself some medals, solider? Yeah, well, I lived through the FAYZ.’" -LIGHT, GONE series
“I’m the Breeze. And the Breeze doesn’t stop. If you get out of this somehow, and you get out of the whole FAYZ and get back home to your mom and dad and everyone out in the world, you tell people that, okay? Maybe find my family some–I’m just saying: you tell people the Breeze never wimped out. The Breeze never gave up. Will you do that?”
“And the three of you aren’t really stepping up. You aren’t working together, which is what all of us regular people need you to do. Because, and really, I’m not trying to be a jerk or whatever, but duh: we do need a system, and we do need you and your ‘Bertos, and sometimes we just need Sam to come along and kick some ass.” Quinn Gaither, LIES [inspired by this]
“‘Retarded’ is a word people don’t use anymore. When they did use it, they used it to signify an impairment of intelligence. Petey is not intellectually impaired in that way. He has at least normal IQ, and may have higher than normal IQ. So the word doesn’t apply.” (GONE, pg. 256)
AU Meme:In which GONE has been made into a TV show, and the cast is being interviewed with questions about the experience.
Interviewer: So, Hailee, did you read the books before auditioning? Did you have any idea what you were getting into?
Hailee: Yeah! I’d read the books way before and was a huge fan, so it was such an honor to get the part! But, even though I knew about all the creepy bits, some things were a little daunting during shooting. They brought in real coyotes for some shots!
