"No matter how much you see, there are bottomless seas you don't. What I am certain of is the heart of it. First we were four. Now we are three"
"We swear that the Order doesn't end, ever, not until one of us dies and we aren't four anymore."
"Not all secrets liberate the teller. By sharing with Harry that afternoon in the Ghost Tunnel, I had excavated memories that had been buried. Freed they hovered over me. They were storms reminding me that life wasn't a grand game. Death was present. Possible."

The Order, its power, it’s a high. I feel it. But it’s also like this shadow I keep seeing out of the corner of my eye. I turn my head and it’s gone. It’s there. Dark. Waiting.*
Love each other.
It hit me, abrupt and as hard as the water smacks your cannonballing form. We had a say in the world. As us, we were invisible. As the Order of IV, we were powerful.*
It was occurring to me that secrets weren’t only dangerous for those who kept them–it was dangerous to know them.*
We outshone the star-choked sky. We stared into space and didn’t wonder what was there because we were the universe. All wormholes led to us.*
We’d come so far–sacrificed, rebelled, and planned. I wouldn’t allow anything to derail us before our finale. And already I’d stopped considering it a finale, an end. My breath stuttered at the thought of no more rebellions. No more revenge…I had invented the Order. I had aimed it at Seven Hills. I had vowed revenge for Goldilocks. And though I wasn’t certain what shape we’d take next, rebellion had dug its claws into my heart and wouldn’t let go.*
