The Blessing and the Curse She knew he would never be faithful to anyone, let alone someone as plain and average as she was. While he always returned to her, was her best friend, her confidant, her protector and her jailor, she always knew she would never be able to capture him in return. Sometimes she tried to console herself that he must somehow love her best, as he crawled into her bed, smelling like winter air and liquor and campfire smoke, falling asleep almost instantly, curled around her with his fingers entwined in hers. She knew he loved her, but wasn’t sure if it was enough.

  • "For some reason he couldn't begin to understand, he wanted to say that out loud. He wanted to say — to this kid who couldn't possibly get it — that he felt tired all of a sudden, that he felt too old, like he was on the wrong side of some circle of life, and he had too many teeth and nothing real to cut them on." In The New Year
  • "Derek used to hate how Stiles’s heartbeat was so much louder than everyone else’s. One day he’d tried to figure out why and instead he’d realized that it wasn’t. It never was. It was exactly the same volume. He’d thought that strong, specific thing about Stiles for all the years they’d been forced to work together, when he’d just been hearing it wrong this whole time. He’d think it again, hearing that heartbeat now, if he didn’t already know better." In The New Year

weird memories

  • blessed storm just before leaving Jersey; seeing a guy fall off his motorcycle.
  • "bon iver, please! there's a peach pie in the oven!"
  • Rafa's little dance outside the St Malo's ferry station; "bring the beat in!"
  • the creepy road in Rennes; "i've seen horror movies that start exactly like this"
  • "what color is the giraffe?" still in Jersey, taunting Pedro for being colorblind; the picture of a giraffe in the hotel in Rennes.
  • breakfast; drinking strong black coffee, watching Rafa lick all the chocolate and Pedro quietly reading some french paper. ♥
  • playing stupid games; "carro amarelo!", "who am I?"
  • smoking after dinner (bichet!!!!) in Burial, sitting on the swing set and sharing ...

  • "I like you for who you are, sassy, nimble witted yet reserved." ♥
  • Cups my face in his calloused, boyish hands.
  • Brought me the most adorable coloring book for kids; our little walk to buy some pencils.
  • The delightful moan he made when I crawled into his bed at five in the morning; "I was dreaming about you".
  • His desperation when my grandma pointed at some perfumes and told me to pick one because it would ruin my scent, which he seems to love.
  • Our first Shields listening, in my bed, both writing about each other in a notebook, with tangled legs and tiny smiles.
  • Said that, for me, he would at least try to read Twilight (not that I would ever ask); already read Juliet, Naked and O Operário Em Construção .
  • Whispers against my mouth, usually what we're still embarrassed or afraid to say o...

The Haunting of Hill House I could live there all alone, she thought, slowing the car to look down the winding garden path to the small blue front door with, perfectly, a white cat on the step. No one would ever find me there, either, behind all those roses, and just to make sure I would plant oleanders by the road. I will light a fire in the cool evenings and toast apples at my own hearth. I will raise white cats and sew white curtains for the windows and sometimes come out of my door to go to the store to buy cinnamon and tea and thread. People will come to me to have their fortunes told, and I will brew love potions for sad maidens.

  • Monsters don’t live in closets. They live in burnt out houses and are your best friend until the moon is full. About Today
  • “Why are you here?” he asks, but he sits next to him anyway. Derek hums thoughtfully, takes a long drag in, eyes half closed. He exhales, lips pursed. Stiles watches him hungrily, chases the shadows across his face with his eyes. “Followed my feet. You and me, Stiles,” he says, then trails off, looks up at the stars again. “Maybe this is all nothing,” he murmurs, takes another hit. Some Kind of Karmic-Chi Love Thing ♡♡♡
  • You came back and you were barely recognizable and yet everything about you, the parts that I. The parts that I wanted had stayed the same. And I'm sorry. Noticed

  • "He wants Derek to want him. Wants him to be raw with it, scrambling. Helpless to say no. He wants to be wanted. And when Derek comes gasping, knees buckling, leaning back against the wall like he can barely stay upright, when he blinks hazy eyes and stares at Stiles like he never wants to look away, when he grips the front of his shirt and whines against his lips and breathes "yes" to Stiles' throaty "mine" ... He realizes he's starting to scare himself." The Price

  • She is filled to the brim with death, and she feeds it to him. He is always hungry. Folie à deux
  • He focuses on the way Stiles’ foot is right next to his on the floor beneath the table, how his lips move and his eyes laugh with his words, the delicate and broad strength of his wrists. Derek would pin those bones high above his head and place his mouth on them so that he could work his way down the curve of Stiles’ arm to the sweet bitterness of his armpit. Give me back my bones
  • He’d either push him back against the side of the building so he can drop to his knees in front of him or he’d end up stalking outside the building all night. He’d sit on the fire escape and dangle his legs over the edge while Stiles slept inside. Give me back my bones

  • "My heart is really pounding," I said. "That's how you know you're having fun," Margo said. But it didn't feel like fun; it felt like a heart attack.
  • And so we just sat there, she with her nail polish balanced on the dash, and me with my shaky finger on the pulse of myself.
  • To stay calm, I wondered to myself, Does he have regular handcuffs, or does he have special SeaWorld handcuffs? Like, are they shaped like two dolphins coming together?
  • The smell leaves me seized by desperate panic — panic not like my lungs are out of air, but like the atmosphere itself is out of air
  • A long line of cars trailer behind me, and I felt anxious about holding them up; I marveled at how I could still have room to worry about such petty, ridiculous cra...
