LOVELY WAR by Julie Berry
James saw her at once. She was dressed in rose-colored silk, and pink certainly was her color. Her pink coat made her look like a tulip. She flung her arms around him. Her hair pins gave way, and he buried his face in her unraveling hair.
They found a patisserie and ate a breakfast of decadent pastries, each as elegant as it was delicious. Did you know food is more infinitely scrumptious when you're in love? They came upon chocolate shops draped in Valentine pomp and made the most of them.
He presented her with a bouquet of pink roses. "Will you be my valentine, Miss Hazel Windicott?"
There is something wonderful about being in love in a city where you know no one. So, if you want to kiss your girl at the top of the Eiffel Tower like there's no tomorrow, you do.

social media aesthetics: the baudelaires
"It's now been many years, months, and sleepless nights since I began to investigate the Baudelaire orphans, but despite all my research, I have been unable to determine their whereabouts. I cannot find them. I cannot help them. I can only hope that they're alive and safe... wherever they are now."

Was the line between enemy and friend horizontal or vertical? Was it a great plain to lumber across or was it a high, high wall—either to be scaled or kicked down in one big blow?

I have never slept so well in my entire life, he says softly. He grins, eyes still closed. Dimples on both cheeks. I feel so strange.

books read in 2021: sorcery of thorns by margaret rogerson
Books, too, had hearts, though they were not the same as people's, and a book's heart could be broken: she had seen it happen before. Grimoires that refused to open, their voices gone silent, or whose ink faded and bled across the pages like tears.

Unrest can be
Then one day
blows the lid.
Something inside me
is waking up,
Are you ready?

allison reynolds — all for the game, nora sakavic
Allison curled her lip at him in scorn. “Shut up. No you’re not. You’re not,” she insisted when Neil opened his mouth to argue. It sounded less like an accusation and more like an order, so Neil reluctantly subsided. “Have you forgotten who has to paint you back together every morning? If you’d let them steamroll you yesterday after all of this,” she flicked her finger up at her own face, “I would hate you.”

I know it’s basic to love Tay, but the girl knows how to write a bop. I’ve never even had a girlfriend, yet somehow I listen to one of her albums and I end up thinking wistfully of all my lost loves and feeling hope that I’ll find love again somehow.

once upon a time,
the gray-eyed monster
kissed his prey
in the still of the night,
that come morning,
that one kiss
would birth another monster
far more powerful,
its fangs and claws
