"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


Quinn, nervous for more than one reason, said, “This isn’t me dogging you or anything, Sam, but brah, if you really do have some kind of magic, you need to be figuring out how to use it.” -GONE by Michael Grant

"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?"


YA Lit Meme [1/8] OTPs » Sam and Astrid, GONE series

"Sam looked at Astrid with affection so obvious a blind man would have seen it. The days of wondering whether they would be together were over. It wasn’t that either of them had said it quite that way; it was just the way it was, it was there, it was a fact. They spent their days and their nights together, and they still disagreed, and they still argued, and they sniped, and they were absolutely bound together into one.” -LIGHT


"Who would you say are the ten most powerful people in the FAYZ, Edilio?" Astrid asked.

"Number one is Albert," Edilio said. "Then Caine. Sam. Lana." He thought about it for a moment longer and said, "Quinn. Drake, unfortunately. Dekka. You. Me. Diana." -FEAR


"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]


REQUEST: The fire in LIES

Lighters and matches flicked. Tiny yellow pinpoints in the black night, casting eerie shadows on wild eyes and mouths pulled back in grimaces of fear and rage.

Zil turned and heaved the bottle toward the closest house. Flames spread over several square feet of porch. And suddenly the flames were licking up the pillars that supported the porch roof.

A wild cheer went up.

“Onward!” Zil cried. “Burn it all down!” (LIES, pg. 207-208)
