"Human beings can’t see anything without wanting to destroy it. That’s original sin. And I’m going to destroy it. Death is going to die."

Blue Lily, Lily Blue quotes (Excerpt here)

Blue’s heart burst with how big it was, this moment, and no other. Then there was silence, or at least not enough sound to be heard over Blue’s thudding heart. Feathers quivered in the mud beside Adam.

“Hold on,” Gansey said. “I’m coming out.

I adored the author’s previous duology, but unfortunately The Wizard’s Promise didn’t quite measure up.Make no mistake, I still enjoyed it - strong female characters, action and adventure, magic and mayhem. I also love the way the author captures life at sea, and the moods of the ocean.I did get quite annoyed that the main character was kept in the dark for so long, particularly when withholding information put her life in danger. Not cool. There was just something missing from this book that prevented me from loving this as much as the pirate duology - that spark of magic, if you will. (pardon the pun)

ϟ 95) When Teddy was an infant, his hair turned color to match that of the person he wanted to hold him. This worked well when he wanted his godfather, which was often, but it became incredibly confusing when he sought a Weasley. There were many hasty rounds of pass-the-baby-because-dear-god-stop-the-crying.

What about when his hair turned pink and they could do nothing about it :’(

'Nuff said. 

Potter has done too much for me for me to ever want to shit all over it. I’m never going to say: ‘Don’t ask me questions about that’. I remember reading an interview with Robert Smith from The Cure. Somebody said to him: ‘Why do you still wear all that makeup, don’t you feel a bit past it?’ And he said: ‘There are still 14-year-olds coming to see The Cure for the first time, dressed like that. I’d never want to make them feel silly.’ It’s a similar thing with Potter. People are still discovering those books and films. It would be awful for them to find out the people involved had turned their backs on it. Though sometimes, people do come up and say ‘I loved you in The Woman in Black,’ which is really sweet. That’s them knowing that it matters to me that I’ve done other stuff.
