"Lincoln?” she asked.
“Yes?”
Do you believe in love at first sight?
He made himself look at her face, at her wide-open eyes and earnest forehead. At her unbearably sweet mouth.
“I don’t know,” he said. “Do you believe in love before that?

"The only truth is love beyond reason."  - Alfred de Musset

 But I am your servant. When you starve I will feed you; when you are sick I will tend you. I crawl at your feet; for before your love, your kisses, I am debased. For you alone I will be weak.

LITERATURE MEME ( 3/10 PROSE +  Deathless - Catherynne M. Valente)

There, weeping, a tsarevna lies locked in a cell. And Master Grey Wolf serves her very well. There, in her mortar, sweeping beneath the skies, the demon Baba Yaga flies. There Tsar Koschei, he wastes away, poring over his pale gold.

And Master Grey Wolf serves her very well.
There, in her mortar, sweeping beneath the skies,
the demon Baba Yaga flies.
There Tsar Koschei,
he wastes away,
poring over his pale gold.


Marya Morevna, all in black, here and now, was a point at which all the women she had been met—the Yaichkan and the Leningrader and the chyerti maiden; the girl who saw the birds, and the girl who never did—the woman she was and the woman she might have been and the woman she would always be, forever intersecting and colliding, a thousand birds falling from a thousand oaks, over and over.

DO SOMETHING - A Fanmix for The Basic Eight by Daniel Handler.

She had the look in her eye when you kick and kick at the door and it doesn’t open, when you write a boy letters and letters and he never loves you, not ‘til the day he dies. Not even then.

LITERATURE MEME (1/3 GENRES + T R A G E D Y)

A serious drama in which a central character, the protagonist — usually an important, heroic person —meets with disaster either through some personal fault or through unavoidable circumstances. In mostcases, the protagonist’s downfall conveys a sense of human dignity in the face of great conflict. Tragedy originated in ancient Greece in the works of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. In modern times, it achieved excellence with William Shakespeare in such works as Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, and Othello. Twentieth-century tragedies include Death of a Salesman, by Arthur Miller, and Murder in the Cathedral , by T. S. Eliot. (x)

So, pain.

The pain when you slice your index finger instead of the scallion. That’s easy to describe and imagine. How the knife, if you’ve sharpened it enough so halfway through the job it skips on the flesh of the scallon bulb and opens up a cut in your fingertip the length of a staple,…
