Tim Cummings, ORPHANS

Madeleine George
“Once," Fran says, settling against the worktable, folding her arms, "I knew this kid who very bravely and bossily came out of the closet when she was only fourteen years old. She told me then that we can't choose who we love. We just love the people we love, no mattter what anyone else might want for us. Wasn't that you?”
Madeleine George, The Difference Between You and Me

We’ll write you out of your supposed insanity. I love you, Micky Affias.

“Can you imagine, somebody telling you, your love for your dearly beloved is a sin! Can you imagine, somebody telling you, women are inferior to men, and are meant only serve the men! Can you imagine, somebody telling you, a man can have multiple wives, and yet be deemed civilized! Here that somebody is a fundamentalist ape - a theoretical pest from the stone-age, that somehow managed to survive even amidst all the rise of reasoning and intellect.”

Genevieve Valentine
“When are you going to get a fella?" Lily asks Rose after a year or two of dancing. "I have one who wants to take me kissing, but I think I should wait for you to have one."
Rose flushes. "I don't think I'll ever have a fella."
"Why not?" Lily bristles. "We're plenty pretty."
"I don't like the look of them," Rose says.
Lily purses her lips at the dance floor, appraising.
After a moment long, Rose says, "Any of them."
Lily looks at her a long time, as Rose tries not to hyperventilate.
Then Lily shrugs and says, "Well, then it's you who should have learned to lead, isn't it?" and when Rose clasps Lily's hand, she clasps it back.
It's the closest they've ever been.”
Genevieve Valentine, The Girls at the Kingfisher Club

“she was lying to him.”
“But she is lying to him. You are lying to him aren't you?” Darren asked
as he turned to me.
“Of course!”
“But the priest didn't know she was lying. Afterward, Moira had to chase
Jacobi down to tell him the truth and then he hit her.”
“He hit you?!”
“Just in the arm. And even though it was supposed to be a hit it felt
more like a love tap.”
“You guys! Y'all are making me skip over the best part!”
“Right, the part where Moira is doomed to burn in hell. I almost forgot.
Go ahead,” Darren encouraged.”
Kaitlin Scott, For Danny

Perry Brass
“If you are what you eat, then why aren’t you what you desire?"
Desire stands in the great no-man’s land of human activity: the zone of most conflict, fear, and anxiety. It scares us. We are often asked to hate it—by those who claim to have given it up for “better” things, and who often, hypocritically, haven’t.”
Perry Brass

Ella Fleming-Christie
