musings of a wandering quaintrelle

“We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow path and told to be responsible.”

—   Robert R. McCammon

We were the illusion on which we stumbled
The fictional reasons brought us here
I was so differently shallow in our creation
But I’ll rather be a lost case than stay with you

The beating is the only thing I’ve got
I’ll cut it up all open
I blow and see it fly
The bitterness and the sweet goodbye

—   "Fictional Reasons" by Boho Dancer

“When Game of Thrones started audiences didn’t really take to Sansa. And I would read the reviews and that was a very sad time for me. I am a very sensitive person. But then season three came along and everything changed. That was the best. I’ve become very defensive of my character.”
