progress:  On page 149. "Aww, Khajoura made it in and Balastar (as Balaster) and TazMazter, so awesome ^^. I expect Dio is actually based on his anime counterpart? I keep imagining the voice as acted there. Damned if I remember the full name of the anime though. Steampunk airship combat, young pilot and his co-pilot + mysterious white haired girl. War. Horrible death of the heroic captain who was mourning his lost love anyway." Dec 16, 2018 01:52PM

"I'm stalling out this time when the River people are introduced because I remember being bored of this before, and am so now. Whenever Dag does a lot of navel gazing without interacting with Fawn due to plot I am not so enamoured of this series." Oct 22, 2012 09:38AM

Susan Cooper
“When the Dark comes rising six shall turn it back;
Three from the circle, three from the track;
Wood, bronze, iron; Water, fire, stone;
Five will return and one go alone.

Iron for the birthday; bronze carried long;
Wood from the burning; stone out of song;
Fire in the candle ring; water from the thaw;
Six signs the circle and the grail gone before.

Fire on the mountain shall find the harp of gold
Played to wake the sleepers, oldest of old.
Power from the Green Witch, lost beneath the sea.
All shall find the Light at last, silver on the tree.”
Susan Cooper, The Dark Is Rising Sequence

“Sometimes I have the urge to conquer large parts of Europe.”
Patricia Briggs, Cry Wolf

Michelle Sagara West
“In youth,' he said, speaking as if from a great distance, 'we believe, and the death of belief forces us to disavow all belief. But that disavowal, time softens, and if we do not believe, we hope. Belief is easier to kill, somehow, and its death easier to bear.”
Michelle West, The Broken Crown

“The thing to recall about Dragons is that it takes a special person to deal with them at all. If you lie to them they will steal from you. If you attack them without cause they will dismember you. If you run from them they will laugh at you.

It is thus best to deal calmly, openly and fairly with Dragons: Give them all they buy and no more or less, and they will do the same by you. Stand at their back and they will stand at yours. Always remember that a Dragon is first a Dragon and only then a friend, a partner, a lover.

Never assume that you have discovered a Dragon's weak point until it is dead and forgotten, for joy is fleeting and a Dragon's revenge is forever.”
Sharon Lee

Joyce Grenfell
“If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone,
Nor when I'm gone speak in a Sunday voice
But be the usual selves that I have known.
Weep if you must,
Parting is hell,
But life goes on,
So sing as well.”
Joyce Grenfell
