Acony ~ Ch. 18

Acony in SPACE

“Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with the demon. We may ask what is relevant but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a liar. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. The attack is psychological, Damien, and powerful. So don’t listen to him. Remember that– do not listen.”

Rashanu! ~ Ch. 03

Rashanu's a girl

“In the ancient city of London, on a certain autumn day in the second quarter of the sixteenth century, a boy was born to a poor family of the name of Canty, who did not want him. On the same day another English child was born to a rich family of the name of Tudor, who did want him. All England wanted him too. England had so longed for him, and hoped for him, and prayed God for him, that, now that he was really come, the people went nearly mad for joy.”

Patalliro! ~ Ch. 24

Flowers of BLOOD AND DEATH

Dig dig dig ’till my eyes can’t see
I still slip through and I still don’t bleed
On this slope there’s a hole and I
Have to get my self inside
Telling you that it’s the truth
I have to do this is my shadow and I have to see yours too
It’s waiting there for you it needs to frame you”

Hiroaki Samura’s [Brute Love]

One Thousand Nights of Love

“And now, friend-reader, you must prepare your heart and your mind for the most impure tale that has ever been told since our world began, a book the likes of which are met with neither amongst the ancients nor amongst us moderns. Fancy, now, that all pleasure-taking either sanctioned by good manners or enjoyned by that fool you speak of incessantly, of whom you know nothing and whom you call Nature; fancy, I say, that all these modes of taking pleasure will be expressly excluded from this anthology, of that whenever peradventure you do indeed encounter them here, they will always be accompanied by some crime or colored by some infamy.”

Firefly Inn ~ Ch. 05

The horror, the horror

Agathon: Didn’t you once write: “You love the light. Do you think your father doesn’t?”

Euripedes: I did.

Agathon: Then don’t expect anyone else to bear your burdens. We’d be mad. Keep your problems to yourself. Mishaps must be faced and squarely tackled, not wriggled out of.

Mnesilochus: Don’t tell me it was wriggling, arsehole, that got your bottom buggered and squarely backed?
