“Why have I written these words in this book? Because of you. You taught me to love this book where I had scorned it. When I read it for the second time, with an open mind and heart, I felt the most complete despair and envy of Sydney Carton. Yes, Sydney, for even if he had no hope that the woman he loved would love him, at least he could tell her of his love. At least he could do something to prove his passion, even if that thing was to die.
I would have chosen death for a chance to tell you the truth, Tessa, if I could have been assured that death would be my own. And that is why I envied Sydney, for he was free.
And now at last I am free, and I can finally tell you, without fear of danger to you, all that I feel in my heart.
You are not the last dream of my soul.
You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.
Me Before Power Rangers (2017): I like the Power Rangers. You know, I used to catch a few episodes as a kid. It always looked real cheesy, but I enjoyed the few I watched. But I wasn’t ever like obsessed or anything. Hell, I didn’t even know their names. I just referred to them by the color of their suit. I didn’t even know they had names.
Me After Power Rangers (2017): ITS MOTHERFUCKING MORPHING TIME! LETS GOOOO! BILLY IS MY SON! Y’ALL CAN FIGHT ME IF YOU THINK OTHERWISE! TRINI AND KIMBERLY OWN MY ASS! JASON IS A REAL COOL DUDE! ZACK IS MY SWEET SUMMER CHILD! TOMMY OLIVER? OH MY LORD! I’M HYPED! LETS GO GREEN RANGER! I GOT HEADCANONS! I GOT SHIPS! I GOT FAVES! I JUST SPENT FORTY FUCKING DOLLARS ON COMIC BOOKS TO PREPARE MYSELF! LET’S GO! GO! GO! POWER RANGERS!
