Galentine’s - Romantic Breakfast at Tiffany’s AU (in the spirit of the novel)

You call yourself a free spirit, a wild thing, and you’re terrified somebody’s going to stick you in a cage. Well, Kendra, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself.

“The mean reds, you mean like the blues?”

“You musn’t give your heart to a wild thing. The more you do, the stronger they get, until they’re strong enough to run into the woods or fly into a tree. And then to a higher tree and then to the sky.”

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

“You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”
