"My only relief is to sleep. When I'm sleeping, I'm not sad, I'm not angry, I'm not lonely, I'm nothing."

Jillian Medoff

(discussing various Teen Wolf fic ideas)

Pete: "In the story, Derek has just threatened to eat Stiles' intestines after Stiles offered that Derek could settle his upset stomach by going out to the back yard and eating grass. This is how I write romance, just for the record."

Me: "That txt split in two, the first ended with, 'out to the back,' and I just knew."

(later)

Pete: "'After spending the morning sharpening her face against a whetstone, Mrs. Argent went for a jog.'"

Me: "This is trufax. Just another morning in the life of Victoria Argent."

Pete: "'Chris quizzically looked up from his paper. "Where are you off to?" "The drugstore," Victoria replied, pulling her windbreaker over her shoulders. "I'm out of L'Oreal Nuclear Carrot hairdye and I thought it was such a lovely day that I'd jog there myself."' I say all this and she is my hero."

(later)

Me: "Txt me back, I'm checking something."

Pete: "'Victoria's cheeks puffed like a squirrel, if a squirrel ate the flesh of its enemies.'"

Me: "Yesssss. ...Text again."

Pete: "'Stiles had had enough. 'Bad Derek! Bad!' He swatted the Alpha with a rolled-up newspaper. 'The bathroom is outside.'"

Me: "Truth. Derek, stop marking Stiles' shoes. Reply again, I'm changing my LED settings."

Pete: "'The gang knew better than to take Derek into the Build-A-Bear workshop when he was in heat, they really did...'"

Me: "Oh, God."

(later)

Pete: "'Stiles' lips brushed against the Alpha's ear as he whispered a secret, a vesper into the night. Derek's head snapped back in a mix of shock and disbelief. "Was that—was that a spell?! Do you think you're Harry Potter or something?" Stiles' thumb and forefinger went to the bridge of his nose, massaging a new headache. "It's my name, asshole."' This is how I ask if you want to hang out tonight. New tradition!"

(later)

Pete: "So help me God, if I read 'puppy pile' one more time..."

Me: "Puppy piiiiile! Would make sense...if you were reading an AU."

Pete: "Which...that kinda was? It involved mpreg, which...my poor eyes."

Me: "Yes! You are officially a fangirl."

(later)

Me: "If they want scent marking, we should have Derek pee on Stiles. And at first, Stiles doesn't notice, because it was dark. 'Was the grass wet...?'"

Pete: "And then he wakes up in the middle of the night and he's soaked. 'Did I wet...? ...Was it a wet dream?'"

Me: "'Why...why does this smell like amonia?'"

Pete: "Oh, my God."

Me: "And other scenting! We should write it like when [your dog] Lego marks me. Derek would puuuuush his face along Stiles' shoulders and under his arms."

Pete: "And when Stiles figures it out, he would return the favor with dirty talk. 'Yeah. You like that. You like a face full of my shoulder?'"

(later)

Pete: "'Armed with the blacklight, the sheer level of destruction opened up before Stiles' eyes. Everything—everything—was covered in dried pee.'"

Me: "I just made the >:D face."

Pete: "I imagine that, in the next scene, he calls Allison over and they both realize that everything they own is glowing and have a proper freakout over it."

Me: "They'd smell it, tho. 'I wondered what that was...'"

Pete: "'I just figured that was the Beacon Hills smell. Everywhere has a smell, you know?'"

Me: "'And...to be honest, most of Beacon Hills smells like this.'"

Pete: "'...Oh, God. That means...' 'Get another blacklight.'"

Me: "YES."

Pete: "We should work on this. And then we need to never admit to it."

Me: "No, then we need to POST IT."

Pete: "Well. Yes. We should call it 'Glow in the Dark'."

Me: "No, no. Phosphorus."

Pete: "YES."

Personal Quote

"I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning, I will be sober and you will still be ugly."

Winston Churchill

Lady Nancy Astor: "Winston, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea."

Winston Churchill: "Nancy, if I were your husband, I'd drink it."

"If you're going through hell, keep going."

Winston Churchill

"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."

Winston Churchill

"Live to the point of tears."

Albert Camus

"You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love."

Warsan Shire

"Take criticism, smash it into dust, add color, and use it to paint breathtaking images of unicorns frolicking through endless fields of greatness."

Matthew Gray Gubler

"You either like me or you don't. It took me twenty-something years to learn how to love myself, I don't have that kinda time to convince somebody else."

Daniel Franzese

"You will always be lucky if you know how to make friens with strange cats."

Ancient Proverb

"What you write first is a first draft. When you get to the end of it, you've got a first draft. Anything can happen after that. (In the first draft of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, while Charlie was touring Wonka's factory, he was accidentally encased in chocolate and sent to Wonka's house, where he foiled a burglary.) There's nothing to stop you fixing anything as you go, but it's wiser to get to the end first, and then look at what you've got. The book in your mind will pretty much always be better than the one that hits the paper. That's just how it works."

Neil Gaiman

"Gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths. They are doctors and teachers, farmers and bankers, soldiers and athletes. And whether we know it, or whether we acknowledge it, they are our family, our friends, and our neihbors. Being gay is not a western invention. It is a human reality."

Hilary Clinton

"Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are."

Kurt Cobain

"If we don't build the land, somebody else will and the science will get discovered. If we don't explore the moons, somebody else will. It will get discovered. That's one of the hallmarks of science that distinguishes it from art. In science, if you don't do it, somebody else will. Whereas in art, if Beethoven didn't compose the Ninth Symphony, no one else before or after is going to compose the Ninth Symphony that he composed, no one else is going to paint Starry Night by van Gogh. So science, when done properly, is never owned by one nation or another."

Neil deGrasse Tyson

"Down there, the scent of the sap and the flowers from the many gardens near the coast used to intoxicate me, and I wanted to burrow my fingers in the dark burning earth. I would roam about and try to remember your face, and draw in the perfume of your body. I would stretch my arms out in the air to touch as much as possible of your sunlight."

"Hell" by Henri Barbusse

"There is no reason not to follow your heart."

Steve Jobs

"I don't like quiet. I don't like having to sit with myself. But no matter where you go, there you are. I hate being on my own. The lights are always on, if you see what I mean. I'm learning to sit still but it's hard. Really hard."

Tom Hardy

"Always keep a bottle of champagne in the fridge for special occasions. Sometimes the special occasion is that you've got a bottle of champagne in the fridge."

Hester Browne

"No matter how many years pass, I'll never forget 'Firebug'. I canít wait to sit once more with Washboard, KayMart, Rivet, the Hot Hooker from Homeland and Captain Kirk. Those guys are my family. Expect laughter, tears, faith-healing and Internet rumors about a sequel. To infinity, and prosper!"

Joss Whedon, on the Firefly reunion panel

"I beg young people to travel. If you don't have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and you're going to see your country differently, you're going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You're going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It's not what Tom Friedman writes about, I'm sorry. You're going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking 12 miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can't get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people—Americans and Europeans—come back and go, 'Ohhhhh.' And the lightbulb goes on."

Henry Rollins

"When some of these Cardinals and Bishops have experienced their first pregnancies and their first labor pains and raised a couple of children on minimum wage, then I'll be glad to hear what they have to say about abortion."

George Carlin

"All I ask of you, especially young people...is one thing. Please don't be cynical, I hate cynicism—it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen. I'm telling you, amazing things will happen.

Conan O'Brien

"We live down the street from a gay couple with a young son, my son goes and plays there and has lunch there. My son is 8 years old, and not once has he come and asked why his friend has two poppas. His family is no different to my family—they eat at the same time, send their kid to school, discipline him and love him the same way. It's only the teaching that we give to the child that makes them see those distinctions."

Mark Ruffalo

"Own your own feelings. Nobody else does. Accept that you don't own the other person's feelings: they do."

Deepak Chopra

"Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world."

Miyamoto Musashi

"Never love anyone who treats you like you're ordinary."

Oscar Wilde

Reporter: "So why do you write these strong female characters?"

Joss Whedon: "Because you're still asking me that question."

"You have to learn to get up from the table when love is no longer being served."

Nina Simone

"Thoughts could leave a deeper scarring than almost anything else."

J.K. Rowling

"Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy."

Anonymous

"Gay marriage won't lead to dog marriage. It is not a slippery slope to rampant inter-species coupling. When women got the righ to vote, it didn't lead to hamsters voting. No court has extended the equal protection clause to salmon."

Bill Maher

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

Nelson Mandela

"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases from being shared."

Buddha

"Character, like a photograph, develops in darkness."

Yousuf Karsh

"Everyone knew that whoever let sadness overtake him would sink into the swamp."

"The Neverending Story"

"But I think the first real change in women's body image came when JLo turned it butt-style. That was the first time that having a large-scale situation in the back was part of mainstream American beauty. Girls wanted butts now. Men were free to admit that they had always enjoyed them. And then, what felt like moments later, boom—Beyonce brought the leg meat. A back porch and thick muscular thighs were now widely admired. And from that day forward, women embraced their diversity and realized that all shapes and sizes are beautiful.

"Ah ha ha. No. I'm totally messing with you. All Beyonce and JLo have done is add to the laundry list of attributes women must have to qualify as beautiful. Now every girl is expected to have: Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanses feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes. Everyone else is struggling."

Tina Fey

"We're sick of hearing people say, 'That band is so gay,' or, 'Those guys are fags.' Gay is not a synonym for shitty. If you wanna say something's shitty, say it's shitty. Stop being such homophobic assholes."

Pete Wentz

"I mean, they say you die twice. Once when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time."

Banksy

"Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. Once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it."

Bill Cosby

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are stronger in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of those you can be sure it will kill you, too, but there will be no special hurry."

Ernest Hemingway

"How many films take 10 years? That's what stands out. That you're with this character for longer than you are with any character ever. So that's the legacy."

Dame Maggie Smith on the Harry Potter movies

"When I first got to New York, my feet hit the sidewalk and you'd have thought I was born and raised there. I took over that town. None of my friends took me seriously. I came home and announced, 'I'm going to move to New York,' and they were like 'Okay.' Then when I did, they kept waiting for me to fail and come back. But I knew I wouldn't. I was like, 'I'll show you.'"

Jennifer Lawrence

"You'll find in your life that sometimes your great ambitions will be momentarily stymied, thwarted, marginalized by those who were perhaps luckier; come from money; had more doors opened; where college was a given, not a student loan; it was something that dad paid for; where an ease and confidence in life was almost a birthright. Where for you, it was a very hard climb. That happens all the time. Just because you come from nothing, you must not let that be something that holds you back."

Henry Rollins

"The one or two nights that we did [assemble offscreen], it made it seem like that was probably for the best. We went to the movies and I loved the look on the face of the guy serving the popcorn when he saw Thor and Loki and Captain America coming to watch Green Lantern."

Clark Gregg, on filming "The Avengers"

"You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That's how I've done it. There's no other way."

Elizabeth Taylor

"Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes, just sitting thinking, 'Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,' but it's really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating."

Anneli Rufus

"When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps."

John Lennon

"Mind you, sometimes the angels smoke, hiding it with their sleeves, and when the archangel comes, they throw the cigarettes away: that's when you get shooting stars."

V. Nabokov

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nutured by the false notion that domacracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"

Isaac Asimov
