“You don’t let many people behind that wall of yours do you?”
“No I don’t because basically people are shit. They have let me down over and over so now I choose them very carefully.”
“You have let Yvan in,” he pointed out.
“Yvan’s different.”
Amy Kuivalainen, Cry of the Firebird

“What are you reading?” she asked as he poured himself scotch and her a vodka. She looked over to the deserted volume. “Stories and Legends of Pagan Russia,” she read aloud. “Are you catching up on Yvan’s biography?”
Amy Kuivalainen, Cry of the Firebird

“Tuoni takes her by the shoulders and turns her to face him. “Remember this Anya. Dreams have power; they show old truths you are too blind to see on waking. They make you remember memories that are lost in the blood flowing through your veins. Remember her magic. Remember what she did when you wake,” he says before he pushes her off the cliff.”
Amy Kuivalainen, Cry of the Firebird

“Your thorns are the best part of you.”
Marianne Moore

“Remember: that giants sleep too soundly; that witches are often betrayed by their appetites; dragons have one soft spot, somewhere, always; hearts can be well-hidden, and you can betray them with your tongue. (from "Instructions")”
Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders

“You better be able to turn yourself off if you think you’re coming back into my house,” she said. The bird gave her another dubious look before stamping one foot and the flames disappeared leaving long gold and red feathers.
“Oh,” Anya said embarrassed. “I suppose you can.”
Amy Kuivalainen, Cry of the Firebird

“Oh Jesus, oh Zeus, oh Odin,” Anya dropped the stick and started shaking. “Oh shit.” The bird spread out its wings, which slowly transformed back into arms and the rest followed until it was a man once more.”
Amy Kuivalainen, Cry of the Firebird

“Anya had never seen a house uglier house than Baba Yaga’s. It was made entirely of mouldy bones in the same interlocking design as a log cabin. A thorny garden grew as high as the fence and skulls, bleached white by the sun, capped each fence post. Two enormous scaly chicken legs came out on either side of the house. Anya snorted in amusement and disgust. Yvan, she noticed, had turned an interesting shade of grey.”
