❝The truth doesn’t set you free, you know. It makes you feel awkward and embarrassed and defenseless and red in the face and horrified and petrified and vulnerable.❞
❝A piece of me is gone. I think we’re made up of all these different pieces and everytime someone goes, you’re left with less of yourself.❞

Day 16: Hero/Heroine
Finnikin, Evanjalin, Froi, and Quintana are probably some of my favorite characters ever. I will fight you over them. They are all incredibly strong, smart, brave and loving. They are not afraid to put others ahead of themselves and do what is right. Froi and Quintana are also probably the most damaged characters I’d ever met, and if I ever see anyone talking shit about them, they’re going down. I love them, they’re my babies.
❝Because without our language, we have lost ourselves. Who are we without our words?❞

❝When one is silent, those around speak even more.❞
- Evanjalin in Finnikin of the Rock, by Melina Marchetta.
❝Be prepared for the worst, my love, for it lives next door to the best.❞

❝But it is her hope that bewitches me, and that hope I may never get out of my system, no matter how many times she’s to be gotten. Can you not see it burning in her eyes? Does it not make you want to look away when you have none to give in return?❞
