“This is why it’s perilous to ignore a librarian.”

“Something in us recognizes magic when we encounter it. Whether we believe in it consciously or not. It affects us and the choices we make.”
Jeffe Kennedy, Master of the Opera Act 1: Passionate Overture

“Believe me, I know. I used to think that it only happened once, your single opportunity to make good. But now I think - no, know - that love is abundant. That's Glorianna's gift to us. That we love, over and over, many times and many people. You're one of them. I love you, Ash."
He crossed to me, tentative, and lifted his hands to cup my naked breasts. "Your tits are so much larger,"he commented.”
