    “I'm coming back into focus when Caesar asks him if he has a girlfriend back home. Peeta hesitates, then gives an unconvincing shake of his head.

    Handsome lad like you. There must be some special girl. Come on, what’s her name?" says Caesar.

    Peeta sighs. "Well, there is this one girl. I’ve had a crush on her ever since I can remember. But I’m pretty sure she didn’t know I was alive until the reaping."

    Sounds of sympathy from the crowd. Unrequited love they can relate to.

    She have another fellow?" asks Caesar.

    I don’t know, but a lot of boys like her," says Peeta.

    So, here’s what you do. You win, you go home. She can’t turn you down then, eh?" says Caesar encouragingly.

    I don’t think it’s going to work out. Winning...won’t help in my case," says Peeta.

    Why ever not?" says Caesar, mystified.

    Peeta blushes beet red and stammers out. "Because...because...she came here with me.”

    “You named your sword Fire? Fire? What kind of a boring name is that? You might as well name your sword 'Blazing Blade' and be done with it. Fire indeed. Humph. Wouldn't you rather have a sword called Sheepbiter or Chrysanthemum Cleaver or something else with imagination?”
    Christopher Paolini, Brisingr

    “The spell. Victor said you had to want me... to care about me... for it to work." When he didn't say anything, I tried to grip his shirt, but my fingers were too weak. "Did you? Did you want me?"
    His words came out thickly. "Yes, Roza. I did want you. I still do. I wish... we could be together."
    "Then why did you lie to me?"
    We reached the clinic, and he managed to open the door while still holding me. As soon as he stepped inside, he began yelling for help.
    "Why did you lie?" I murmured again.
    Still holding me in his arms, he looked down at me. I could hear voices and footsteps getting closer.
    "Because we can't be together."
    "Because of the age thing, right?" I asked. "Because you're my mentor?"
    His fingertip gently wiped away a tear that had escaped down my cheek. "That's part of it," he said. "But also... well, you and I will both be Lissa's gaurdians someday. I need to protect her at all cost. If a pack of Strogoi come, I need to throw my body between them and her."
    I know that. Of course that's what you have to do." The black sparkles were dancing in front of my eyes again. I was fading out.
    "No. If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you.”

    “You can't force love, I realized. It's there or it isn't. If it's not there, you've got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you've got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.”

    “Yeah? What'd you name all those cats?"

    You named your cats after the riders of the apocal--wait. Mr. Whiskers?"

    Well, there are only four horsemen.”

    “Dimitri: "She might be wild and disrespectful, but if she has potential—"

    “By the way, my name's Rose Hathaway. I'm seventeen years old, training to protect and kill vampires, in love with a completely unsuitable guy, and have a best friend whose weird magic could drive her crazy.

    “Stop fighting me!" he said, trying to pull on the arm he held.

    He was in a precarious position himself, straddling the rail as he tried to lean over far enough to get me and actually hold onto me.

    “Let go of me!” I yelled back.

    But he was too strong and managed to haul most of me over the rail, enough so that I wasn’t in total danger of falling again.

    See, here’s the thing. In that moment before I let go, I really had been contemplating my death. I’d come to terms with it and accepted it. I also, however, had known Dimitri might do something exactly like this. He was just that fast and that good. That was why I was holding my stake in the hand that was dangling free.

    I looked him in the eye. "I will always love you."

    Then I plunged the stake into his chest.

    It wasn’t as precise a blow as I would have liked, not with the skilled way he was dodging. I struggled to get the stake in deep enough to his heart, unsure if I could do it from this angle. Then, his struggles stopped. His eyes stared at me, stunned, and his lips parted, almost into a smile, albeit a grisly and pained one.

    "That’s what I was supposed to say. . .” he gasped out.

    Those were his last words.”

    “Lissa and I had been friends ever since kindergarten, when our teacher had paired us up together for writing lessons. Forcing five-year-olds to spell Vasilisa Dragomir and Rosemarie Hathaway was beyond cruel, and we’d—or rather, I’d—responded appropriately. I’d chucked my book at out teacher and called her a fascist bastard. I hadn’t known what those words meant, but I’d known how to hit a moving target.
    Lissa and I had been inseparable ever since.”

    “I'm a werewolf trapped in a human body."
    "Well, yeah, that's kind of the definition."
    "No, really. I'm trapped."
    "Oh? When was the last time you shape-shifted?"
    "That's just it - I've never shape-shifted."
    "So you're not really a werewolf."
    "Not yet. But I was meant to be one, I just know it. How do I get a werewolf to attack me?"
    Stand in the middle of a forest under a full moon with a raw steak tied to your face, holding a sign that says, 'Eat me; I'm stupid'?”

    “Don’t ever leave me again,” I said in a tiny voice.
    I won’t,” he promised into my hair, sounding most un-Fang-like. “I won’t. Not ever.”
    And just like that, a cold shard of ice that had been inside my chest ever since we’d split up-well, it just disappeared. I felt myself relax for the first time in I don’t known how long. The wind was chilly, but the sun was bright, and my whole flock was together. Fang and I were together.
    Excuse me? I’m alive too.” Iggy’s plaintive voice made me pull back.”

    “Inside the snow globe on my father's desk, there was a penguin wearing a red-and-white-striped scarf. When I was little my father would pull me into his lap and reach for the snow globe. He would turn it over, letting all the snow collect on the top, then quickly invert it. The two of us watched the snow fall gently around the penguin. The penguin was alone in there, I thought, and I worried for him. When I told my father this, he said, "Don't worry, Susie; he has a nice life. He's trapped in a perfect world.”

    “Get stuffed, don't you have more publicity stunts to pull?" Bones shot back. "How about chatting with another writer who can smear your name into greater popularity?"
    "What, did Anne Rice not return your calls, mate?" Vlad asked scathingly. "Jealousy is such an ugly trait.”
