Amy Lane, Keeping Promise Rock
tags: love
“How'd he taste?"

Like a five second rule Oreo..." he said thoughtfully

A five second rule Oreo?"

A little dirty, but still sweet...”
Amy Lane, Vulnerable
“I love you. I want to shout it sometimes. I know you worry about our letters and texts getting read--shades of WWII, haunting us still, I guess, and I'm well aware that nothing's safe on the internet. I worry too. You need to know that when I say it, when I ask you to say it, it's because my lungs feel full of dark water, and seeing it or writing it lets me breathe.”
Amy Lane, Keeping Promise Rock
“People hurt each other all the time just by being. What matters is that when you hurt someone, you do what you can to make it right.”
Amy Lane, Keeping Promise Rock
“Okay," Crick said, rolling his eyes. "I give. Which part of my body is more interesting than my ass?"
Deacon rewarded his obtuseness with a smack to the head. "Your heart, you fuckin' moron...”
Amy Lane, Keeping Promise Rock
“I'm still not a god," he said apologetically. Crick stood behind him and pulled his shoulders back against that wide, strong chest.
"Better than a god," Crick murmured. "You're the reason to have faith.”
Amy Lane, Keeping Promise Rock
“You cannot take a person's humanity and then retain your own”
Amy Lane, Truth in the Dark
“....and his head and shoulders were on the bed next to the boy who had captured his heart like cupped hands would capture a butterfly, and had never, ever clutched him too tight and never let him go.”
Amy Lane, The Locker Room
“God. No wonder it was so easy. He’s been bleeding since he was a baby. He just never told anyone. How do you even know it hurts after all that time?” Because you loved me, and I knew what it meant to feel.”
Amy Lane, Chase in Shadow
“Sex was lovely. Sex was sublime. Sex was flesh and cock and suck and fuck and come. This night sex was starlight. Sex was oxygen. Sex was us, and we were beautiful, beautiful and perfect in each other's arms.”
Amy Lane, Truth in the Dark
“hope could betray you—but if you had no hope, life could actually
surprise you in the best of ways.”
Amy Lane, Keeping Promise Rock

“You’re here!” She repeated, wrapping her arms around his neck and her legs
around his hips. He’d dropped his bags as she’d ran, and now he cupped her bottom in his large hands...His heart gave a giant thump, all the way down from his chest to his stomach,
and as she smiled up at him he lowered his head and devoured her mouth,
smile and all. Her lips were just as warm, and just as soft as he remembered, and her mouth tasted like peaches and cinnamon and Corinne Carol-Anne and without thought he pushed her back against the hallway wall and kissed her and kissed her and kissed her as though all their time apart would disappear in that frantic mating of tongue and lips and teeth. He wanted to take her into himself, all of her, and keep her warm and safe and happy, just like this moment when she
burst with joy, just to see him.
--Wounded
(Green and Cory, after being apart)”
Amy Lane
“I will love you forever,” I murmured, and he stroked the hair off of my forehead.
I will hold you to that.” His face was grim and his voice was sober—he
touched my handprint of chaos as he said it, and I knew in my bones that it was a solemn vow, and not a sweet or a kind offering of love at all. Green would make me live if he had to crack the foundations of the world.”
Amy Lane, Rampant
“...she often had a temper that made a PMS-ing harpy going into nicotine withdrawal look like a chubby fuzzy bunny that burped daisies and shot rainbows out its ass.”
Amy Lane, Bewitched by Bella's Brother
“...if I was going to play this game and love it, it had to love me back.”
Amy Lane, The Locker Room
“Jeff Beachum, Sergeant of Snark, Wielder of Witticism, Dominator of the Double Entendre, completely ran out of things to say.”
Amy Lane, Living Promises
“...every vertebrae on his back was a prayer bead under my hands.”
Amy Lane, Racing for the Sun
“Sometimes the small dreams were all a person needed to live.”
Amy Lane
“Simple is good," he said. "I've lived through complicated. Complicated hurts. Simple sustains you. Complicated makes you hungry for simple.”
Amy Lane, The Winter Courtship Rituals of Fur-Bearing Critters
“Excellent. We keep your furniture. Whose bed?”
“Yours.”
“Why mine?”
“It’s bigger, for one.”
“And for another?”
“Mine doesn’t have the sort of headboard you can tie someone to. I’ve always sort of wanted to do that.”
“Bend over. Now. Take off your pants and bend over. I’ll be done in five minutes. No one will ever know.”
Amy Lane, Gambling Men
“I was terrified of my weakness, of my sharp tongue, of
my every flaw. I was terrified that this moment, my chance to
live in happiness for however short a time we may have had,
would be ruined because I was simply not carved out of the
same wood as happiness, and that my grain was too twisted
to ever take its form.”
Amy Lane, Truth in the Dark
“I didn't have time to tell Bracken to care for her. I didn't have time to tell Arturo that I knew why he was hard on me, and it was okay. I didn't have time to tell Green that he was the sun and the moon and the stars. The Goddess gave me just enough time to feel her pain, to let her know I loved her. I had just long enough to say goodbye.”
Amy Lane, Vulnerable
“You’re my friend,” Chris whispered back, and his other hand came up so he could rub Xander’s lower lip with his thumb. “That makes you beautiful.”
Amy Lane, The Locker Room
“The whole world heard you tell poor Angie Robinson that “Chris Edwards was your heart”—man, it’s one of the most fucking romantic things I’ve ever heard.”
Amy Lane, The Locker Room
“This time, he fumbled for Collin's hand in the elevator. He still felt like a thief, there was no denying it, but sometimes thieves stole things because they needed them to live.”
Amy Lane, Living Promises
“How’re the cats?” he asked, smiling a little. He did miss Angel Marie. Hell, he missed them all.
“Feral,” Benny sniffed. “And horny. Every time one of us walks in, they all start humping our shoes.”
“They’re fixed,” Shane mumbled, but the conversation was oddly reassuring. It sounded normal, and like home.
“Tell that to the big fuzzy brown one….”
“Orlando Bloom?”
“Yeah, whatever. Last time I was there that damned animal violated my knitting.”
Shane lost a battle with a laugh and then whined because it hurt his ribs.
“Violated?”
[...]
“Let’s just say that wool is no longer virgin,” she quipped dryly, and Shane’s chest shook.”
Amy Lane, Making Promises
“Shane! Shane! You must keep the boy from eating any more! You have no idea what will happen!” Collin was face to face with Martin’s father then, and they both heard Martin say, “You stay away from my eats, little man, or I will end you!” “You need to put that down, Martin, or you will never fit through another door!”
Amy Lane, Living Promises
“Because it’s you and basketball, Christian. Only one of you can break my heart.”
Amy Lane, The Locker Room
“Listen to me. I will spill my insides for you once only. We were three—I am the green, the
growing, the day. I loved the moon, the silver night, and he loved the sunshine, fierce and hot, and she
loved me because the sun must love the day. And the sun and I stood in a valley of stone and faced
death, because we wanted to spare the night, who had suffered a thousand deaths already, and we didn't
want him to bleed any more. But he would not allow it. He swooped from the sky and clenched death
in both hands, and we wore his blood like skin.”
Amy Lane, Wounded
