Just because something isn’t practical doesn’t mean it’s not worth creating. Sometimes beauty and real-life magic are enough.
(Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins)
I keep telling myself
just a girl.
Another leaf blown across my path
Destined to pass on
And shrivel into yourself
Like all the others.
Yet despite my venom
You refuse to wither
You remain golden throughout,
And in your gaze I am left to wonder if it is
Who feels the fall.
by Varen Nethers *about Isobel* (Enshadowed [Nevermore #2] by Kelly Creagh)
His kisses were gifts. He kissed with everything he had, with power and passion and hunger and love. He held nothing back, giving everything, exposing everything.
Eva about Gideon (Reflected in You [Crossfire #2] by Sylvia Day)
And then…I’m aware of another presence.
Cricket stands behind me. The faintest touch of a finger against the back of my kimono. I close my eyes. I understand his compulsion, his need to touch. As my parents burst into congratulating Calliope, I slide one hand behind my back. I feel him jerk away in surprise, but I find his hand, and I take it into mine. And I stroke the tender skin down the center of his palm. Just once.
He doesn’t make a sound. But he is still, so still.
I let go, and suddenly my hand is in his. He repeats the action back. One finger, slowly, down the center of my palm.
I cannot stay silent. I gasp.
Cricket & Lola (Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins)
Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness.

there was a time before you
but I can’t remember it now
a time before your beauty and I
were formally introduced
I’m sure I lived without you
but I don’t remember how
can’t imagine living without
these feelings you’ve produced
just one glance
and my life was redrawn
just one word
and my vocabulary changed
I asked the time
and you said ‘what’s the hurry?’
you asked my name
and I almost forgot
