“You both passed out,” Percy said. “I don’t know why, but Ella told me not to worry about it. She said you were…sharing?”
“Sharing,” Ella agreed. She crouched in the stern, preening her wing feathers with her teeth, which didn’t look like a very effective form of personal hygiene. She spit out some red fluff. “Sharing is good. No more blackouts. Biggest American blackout, August 14, 2003. Hazel shared. No more blackouts.”
Percy scratched his head. “Yeah…we’ve been having conversations like that all night. I still don’t know what she’s talking about.”
Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena

“How would you feel about sharing your bed?" she asked.
Tristan blinked. "Excuse me?"
"He'd love to!" Gary said.
Tristan shot him a look,
"Good," said Ivy, failing to notice Gary's wink. "Ella can be a pillow hog, but all you have to do is roll over her.”

“He smiles. "You know- I feel everything when you touch me, love. I can feel your excitement. Your nervousness. Your pleasure. And I love it," he says quietly. "I love the way you respond to me. I love the way you want me. I feel it when you lose yourself, the way you trust me when we're together. And I feel your love for me," he whispers. "I feel it in my bones,"
~ Warner to Ella/Juliette”

“You told me you believed marriage was for other people."

"You're the only man who could make me believe that it's for me, too. Although when you get down to it, love is what's real. I still say marriage is just a piece of paper."

Jack smiled. "Let's find out," he said, and he pulled me down to the bed with him.

Jack & Ella”

“Auden wrote that when the boy falls from the sky after calamity after calamity, he still has a future somewhere and that there’s no point in dwelling on one’s loss. But did he suffer this? Would he have written that if he had lived my life?

“I've come to gamble."
The old man's mouth twitched. He put down his shish kebab and leaned toward Percy. "A gamble...how interesting. Information in exchange for the harpy? Winner take all?"
"No," Percy said. "The harpy isn't part of the deal."
Phineas laughed. "Really? Perhaps you don't understand her value."
"She's a person," Percy said. "She isn't for sale.”
Rick Riordan, The Son of Neptune

“How did you know?" She asked.

"About cookies?" I frowned, thankful for the subject change.

She nodded. I could lie. But it was Christmas and my sister did say to be nice.

So, even though, I knew I'd regret it later, I leaned in and whispered in her ear, "Day one, the first day you were here, you snuck cookies into your room. Day two, you did the same thing." I hesitated. "Whose stash do you think you keep stealing, hmmm little thief?"

“How'd you get a name like Cinderella?"
"My birth name is Ella, after my mother, Gabrielle. But no one's called me that for years."
"I like Cinderella," Louisa declared. "I don't understand the 'Cinder' in front of Ella, but it's different, I'll say."
"I used to curl up by the fire in the kitchen waiting for my papa to come home from his travels," Cinderella explained. "Sometimes I'd fall asleep and have soot all over my clothes. One time he cleaned it off, and ever since he called me Cinderella."
"Cinderella" had been her father's term of endearment for her. Only after he died did her stepmother and stepsisters use her name as a way of mocking her.”
Elizabeth Lim, So This is Love

Elizabeth Lim
“Tonight, you'll show them you're as lovely as your name."
You're as lovely as your name, Cinderella echoed in her thoughts.
It was almost like something her father had said once, when Drizella and Anastasia first made fun of her name.
Your name is lovely, he'd chided her, just like you. Do you want me to call you Ella?
No, Papa. I like Cinderella.
Then ignore them. You're stronger than that, my darling.

Elizabeth Lim, So This is Love

“Ella!" Brice's voice echoed over the hedges, dripping more with frustration than concern. "Have you lost yourself in the maze again?"
His sister clapped a hand over her mouth, though her giggle still slipped past. "Not just myself, I'm afraid. Will you be a doll, Brice?"
"Where are you? Wonderland?"
Ella grinned. "Whitby has the most delightful White Rabbit in one corner, and then the Queen of Hearts and Gryphon in subsequent ones." Louder, she called, "No, dearest, I made it all the way to Neptune this time! With only one wrong before now!"
"Bully for you.”
Roseanna M. White, The Reluctant Duchess

“....but somehow she wasn't surprised when they arrived at a figure of a frog wearing a crown and looking at them as of to say, " Hello, fly. You look delicious. "
"Oh, drat." Ella narrowed her eyes at the frog. "Don't look at me that way Edmund. You never turn into a Prince no matter how many times I've kissed you.”

“The separation doesn’t work. It’s like I’m missing a lung or something. What am I supposed to do with only one lung?’ He brushed hair back from her face. ‘You tell me when you’re short of breath and I’ll breathe for you. On land, in the water. It doesn’t matter.”
Tanya Bird, Breathing Water
