“So when she looked in the mirror one day, and saw the beginning of thorny protrusions on her legs, a slight greenish tinge to her skin, she sighed.

It was inevitable. - The Monster In Her Bedroom, Havok Magazine, Issue 1.1”
Katherine Valdez

“She'd fall back asleep dreaming of hurricanes whipping the palm trees around her childhood home, trying to run from the Godzilla-sized beast that rushed to devour her. But her feet were stuck in invisible cement. As she struggled to scream, she'd startle awake and feel the staccato beats of her heart thumping double-time.

Only then would she remember: she brought him into this world.

- The Monster In Her Bedroom, Havok Magazine, Issue 1.1”
Katherine Valdez

“When life expectancy hit 95 years of age, married people around the world shouted, "Enough!" And just like that, the institution of marriage was reinvented.”
Katherine Valdez, Baby Shoes: 100 Stories by 100 Authors

“When people fall in love, they burst into flames.”
Jandy Nelson, I'll Give You the Sun
tags: love

“Is it always like that?" I ask, breathless. “No,” he says. “It's never like that.” I hear the wonder in his voice. And just like that, everything changes.”
Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything

“If I could, I would kiss him every second of every day. For all the days.”
Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything

“Happily ever after, or even just together ever after, is not cheesy,” Wren said. “It’s the noblest, like, the most courageous thing two people can shoot for.”
Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl

“Meeting your soul mate is like walking into a house you've been in before - you will recognize the furniture, the pictures on the wall, the books on the shelves, the contents of drawers: You could find your way around in the dark if you had to.”
Jandy Nelson, I'll Give You the Sun
