The Darkling gently folded me in his arms. He pressed a kiss to the top of my hair.
“I will strip away all that you know, all that you love, until you have no other shelter but me.”

The Raven Cycle, Maggie Stiefvater

“In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them.
Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness.
Her raven boys.” 

"Doesn’t look like he wanted to be found."

But even now I know this isn’t a fairy tale. I know that we’ll have hard times, confusing times. I know that things won’t always happen the way we want them to and that we’ll have to work to remember that we chose this. It won’t be perfect, not all the time. This isn’t happily ever after. It’s so much more than that.

The ceiling rose high above them, though instead of rows of seats a wide bare marble floor stretched toward a dais at the end of the room. Behind the dais were two massive, separate windows.Sunset light poured through each them, though one sunset was the color of gold, and the other was the color of blood

The light outside the windows had dimmed slightly, and she could see the dais more clearly.On it sat two immense well, the only word for them was “thrones.” They were ivory and gold, with steps leading up to them. Each had a curved back embossed with a single key.

Fictional Characters: America Singer from The Selection book

”Like her red, fiery hair, America has a short temper she inherited from her mother. However, America is also kind and greeted people at the airport when she arrived to Illéa. She greeted them for so long that the next group of the Selected arrived at the airport. She is very stubborn and persistent at times, and jumps to conclusions a lot of the time. She can also be hypocritical at times, but always apologizes if she is proven wrong. America’s greatest fear of entering the Selection was losing her individuality.”
