Sarah Addison Allen
“Sometimes its necessary to embrace the magic, to find out what's real in life, and in one's own heart.”
Sarah Addison Allen, First Frost

Warsan Shire
“you are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
forget you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you fill his mouth
his teeth ache with memory of taste
his body just a long shadow seeking yours
but you are always too intense
frightening in the way you want him
unashamed and sacrificial
he tells you that no man can live up to the one who
lives in your head
and you tried to change didn't you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can't make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.”
Warsan Shire

“Right then," Campbell began, his tone so civil it was offensive. "May I have your name for the record, Miss...?"

"Eliza Braun," Eliza sneered. "Here, I'll spell it for you -- B-U-G-G-E-R-O-F-F.”
Tee Morris Pip Ballantine, The Janus Affair

Eli Brown
“We are surrounded by monsters," she said. "We can cower before them or we can pick one and sink our teeth in with the aim to give it hell.”
Eli Brown, Cinnamon and Gunpowder

Catherynne M. Valente
“Remember this when you are queen,” he whispered hoarsely. “I moved the earth and the water for you.”
Catherynne M. Valente, Deathless
