maybe love was superstition, a prayer we said to keep the truth of loneliness at bay. i tilted my head back. the stars looked like they were close together, when really they were millions of miles apart. in the end, maybe love just meant longing for something impossibly bright and forever out of reach.

shadow and bone countdown - day 4: favorite relationship
The sun was out for once, and Inej had turned her face to it. Her eyes were shut, her oil-black lashes fanned over her cheeks. The harbor wind had lifted her dark hair, and for a moment Kaz was a boy again, sure that there was magic in this world.

daisy: it’s an album about needing someone and having them l o v e someone else.
billy: it’s an album about the push and p u l l of stability and instability. it’s about the struggle that I live almost every day to not do something stupid. is it about love? yeah, of course it is. but that’s because it’s easy to disguise almost anything as a love song.

i am no one; i am nothing. i am a blank paper on which you and your magic wrote a girl. just the kind of girl you wanted, all hungry and hurt and needing. a machine for loving you. nothing in me was not made by you.

↳ #78 - The Secret History
'What we did was terrible, but still I don't think any of us were bad, exactly; chalk it up to weakness on my part, hubris on Henry's, too much Greek prose composition - whatever you like.'
Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of morality, their lives are changed profoundly and for ever.
The Secret History is a story of two parts; the chain of events that led to the death of a classmate - and what happened next.

make me choose: @princekiem asked cemetery boys or red white & royal blue?
The truth is, Henry and I have been together since the beginning of this year. The truth is, as many of you have read, we have both struggled every day with what this means for our families, our countries, and our futures. The truth is, we have both had to make compromises that cost us sleep at night in order to afford us enough time to share our relationship with the world on our own terms. insp. @parhelias
happy birthday lily [ @percyokonjos ]!

You are strong enough to survive the fall.
They were plummeting toward the sea. Zoya felt Genya’s arms around her, Liliyana holding her tight. She felt Nikolai’s presence beside her and Juris’ sword in her hands.
With a wild, gasping breath, she felt her wings unfurl.
Rule of Wolves, ch. 39.

MAKE ME CHOOSE — @percyokonjos asks oliver marks or selwyn kane
actors are by nature volatile—alchemic creatures composed of incendiary elements, emotion and ego and envy. heat them up, stir them together, and sometimes you get gold. sometimes disaster.

↳ #77 - Nevernight
Mia Corvere is only ten years old when she is given her first lesson in death.
Destined to destroy empires, the child raised in shadows made a promise on the day she lost everything: to avenge herself on those that shattered her world.
But the chance to strike against such powerful enemies will be fleeting, and Mia must become a weapon without equal. Before she seeks vengeance, she must seek training among the infamous assassins of the Red Church of Itreya.
Inside the Church's halls, Mia must prove herself against the deadliest of opponents and survive the tutelage of murderers, liars and daemons at the heart of a murder cult.
The Church is no ordinary school. But Mia is no ordinary student.
The shadows love her.
And they drink her fear.
