she thought she might kill her.”

It will get so bad you'll be afraid to look away, you'll be afraid to sleep.”
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves

“It might be inexplicable. It might be beyond the limits of my senses to capture—or my science or my intellect—but I still believed I was in the presence of some kind of living creature, one that practiced mimicry using my own thoughts.

Jeff VanderMeer, Annihilation
