“You just don't want to be alone. That's no reason to be with someone. That's not love.”
Cori McCarthy

“How did you ever train in this thing at knight camp without peripheral vision?"
"Knights don't need peripheral vision. They need chivalry.”
Cori McCarthy, Once & Future

“Stories end in a rush. One minute, Will and Lyra are in love on their bench. The next they’re in separate worlds. One minute the Pevensie’s are kings and queens. The next, they’re back through the wardrobe. One minute, the One ring is lava-dissolving in Gollum’s hand, the next…well, that example doesn’t work. The return of the king has like seven ending scenes, but for good reason.”
Cori McCarthy, Now a Major Motion Picture
