You are part of my existence, part of myself. You have been in every line I have ever read. (…) You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with. (…) To the last hour of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil.
—  Charles Dickens “Great Expectations”Oh God this is so Emison
You have been in every line I have read since I first came here,
You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with.
Estella, to the last hour of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil. But in this separation, I associate you only with the good.
—  Great Expectations

Estella: “You will get me out of your thoughts in a week”

Pip: “Out of my thoughts! You are part of my existence, part of myself. You have been in every line i have ever read, since i first came here, the rough common boy whose poor heart you wounded even then. You have been in every prospect i have ever seen since-on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with. The stones of which the strongest London buildings are made are not more real, or more impossible to be displaced by your hands, then your presence and influence have been to me, there and everywhere, will be. Estella, to the last hour of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil. But, in this seperation I associate you only with the good, and I will faithfully hold you to that always, for you must have done me far more good than harm, let me feel now what sharp distress i may.”

Noah: Will you just stay with me?

Allie: Stay with you? What for? Look at us, we’re already fighting!

Noah: Well, that’s what we do. We fight. You tell me when I am being an arrogant son-of-a-bitch and I tell you when you’re being a pain in the ass… which you are, 99% of the time. I’m not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a two-second rebound rate and then you’re back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing.

Allie: So, what?

Noah: So, it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I wanna do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day.

Great Expectations (Betrayal & Eric)

Betrayal smiled to herself as she pulled her hair back into a ponytail. Today was the day. She’d strung Eric along for three days. Not yet and tomorrow had been her answers when he’d asked if she’d “turned it off yet” so they could try to get pregnant. She’d even begged off of having sex by claiming she was exhausted. He’d been like a little boy whose favorite toy had been put on an unreachable shelf. 

When he’d left to go for a swim an hour ago, she’d responded, “Maybe tomorrow” to the hopeful question on his face. If he’d known what she knew, he wouldn’t have left the room.

She grinned. If he’d known that she’d been able to conceive since the day they’d decided to start trying, he’d have had her in bed since then.
