The elevator pitch here is, "What if some Welsh people were psychic?"

Gwynedd isn't entirely Wales, but the names and the reference to Marcher lords pretty firmly set its time and place. I'm actually a bit surprised that it wasn't just set in Wales, s...more

Kinfolk gets pointed out around the web for its somewhat-idealized portraits of life--I remember my wife showing me a "cooking in magazines/cooking in real life" list and all the cooking in magazines pictures were from the Kinfolk Instagram account--...more

Rachel Cohn
“I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas: It brings people together while time stands still. Cozy couples lazily meandered the streets and children trudged sleds and chased snowballs. No one seemed to be in a rush to experience anything other than the glory of the day, with each other, whenever and however it happened.”
Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

H.P. Lovecraft
“Throw a stick, and the servile dog wheezes and pants and stumbles to bring it to you. Do the same before a cat, and he will eye you with coolly polite and somewhat bored amusement. And just as inferior people prefer the inferior animal which scampers excitedly because someone else wants something, so do superior people respect the superior animal which lives its own life and knows that the puerile stick-throwings of alien bipeds are none of its business and beneath its notice. The dog barks and begs and tumbles to amuse you when you crack the whip. That pleases a meekness-loving peasant who relishes a stimulus to his self importance. The cat, on the other hand, charms you into playing for its benefit when it wishes to be amused; making you rush about the room with a paper on a string when it feels like exercise, but refusing all your attempts to make it play when it is not in the humour. That is personality and individuality and self-respect -- the calm mastery of a being whose life is its own and not yours -- and the superior person recognises and appreciates this because he too is a free soul whose position is assured, and whose only law is his own heritage and aesthetic sense.”
H.P. Lovecraft

George R.R. Martin
“There is only one god and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: “Not today.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Neil Gaiman
“You've a good heart. Sometimes that's enough to see you safe wherever you go. But mostly, it's not.”
Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere

Arthur C. Clarke
“Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.”
Arthur C. Clarke
