Kendra Ardnek and 3 other people liked Mikayla's status update
Mikayla is 75% done with Deny: If Renna says "I should have mentioned God" or something like that one more time, I'm going to scream. I love this character so much, but sometimes I just want to take her by the shoulders and scream at her to actually do something instead of just saying she should!!

“It is a fact universally acknowledged that a short girl in pursuit of something above her head must be in want of some young man to get it down for her.”
Kendra E. Ardnek, Water Princess, Fire Prince

“Respect is not so different from love,” said Jill Anna. “And he’s a young man quite worthy of it. I’d rather hear that you respect him, and don’t love him, than love him, and not respect him. Love can grow from respect, but love without respect will crumble away.”
Kendra E. Ardnek, Water Princess, Fire Prince

“In my experience, involvement in fairy tales is unavoidable no matter who you are, no matter how many fairy tales you’ve lived through already.”
Kendra E. Ardnek, Poison Kiss

"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
