“Did the men steal the papers?" Reynie asked, fearing her response.
No, because they are fools," Sophie said bitterly. "They demanded to see the papers, and when I did not answer fast enough -- they were very frightening, you see -- they hurt me so that I was not awake. . . . When I opened my eyes they were still trying to find the papers. They did not understand how we organize the library, you see. They were angry and creating a bad mess. . . . The police were coming and the men decided they must leave. I shouted at them as they left: 'It is a free and public library! All you had to do was ask!”

“This is nice,' Melody said, picking up a red leather box with a vintage watch inside.
'Yes, it is nice. It's the watch I gave Walker as a wedding gift.'
'He gave it back?'
'Actually, he sold it back to the person I bought it from who alerted me and I reacquired it.'
'I'm sorry. That sounds upsetting.'
'It was. Very. Especially since he sold the watch to buy combs for my long hair and without knowing what he had done I sold my hair to buy a leather case for this watch.”

“Post-structuralism is a reaction to structuralism
and works against seeing language as a stable,
closed system. It is a shift from seeing the poem
or novel as a closed entity, equipped with definite
meanings which it is the critic's task to decipher,
to seeing literature as irreducibly plural, an
endless play of signifiers which can never be
finally nailed down to a single center, essence,
or meaning.

Jan Rybicki, 2003”

Rick Riordan
“Long story short: Alderman took the cursed ring. He put it on and turned even crazier and eviler, which I hadn’t thought possible.
Personally, I liked my cursed rings to at least do something cool, like turn you invisible and let you see the Eye of Sauron. Andvari’s ring had no upside. It brought out the worst in you—greed, hate, jealousy. According to Hearth, it would eventually change you into a bona fide monster so your outside could be as repulsive as your inside.”
Rick Riordan, The Ship of the Dead

“You know you are changing

“Mutsuko: "I prepared a new sign!”

Yuichi: "Forget about the signs! We don’t need another one!”

Mutsuko: "I thought someone might get the wrong idea.”

Yuichi: “...Yeah, we’ve seen plenty of someone here getting the wrong idea, haven’t we?”

Mutsuko: "Also, it felt kind of like lying. So I wrote this!”

With that, Mutsuko tore off the bug bomb sign and stuck up a new one.

Demon Castle Goddamn.

Yuichi: "That makes no sense! This is the survival club, right? So that’s a lie, too!”

Mutsuko: "Really? I think anyone would be hesitant to come in if they thought Lord Greed might be hanging around. And I refer to this room as Demon Castle Goddamn, so it’s not a lie!”

Yuichi: “How many people will even get the reference?!”

Mutsuko: "...Good point. How about this for a compromise, then?” Mutsuko took out her felt-tipped pen and wrote directly on the sign to fix it. It now read:

Demon Castle Goddaclub.

Yuichi: "What kind of club is that supposed to be?!”
