Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. - George Santayana
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. - Plato
Rule number one of wizardry, kid. They never expect bazookas. -Harry Dresden in Rosethorn's story "Practicality"
The car was full of eye-witnesses, so news spread across the train very fast that Harry Potter had been at least partially kissed by a dementor. The news was treated very soberly by most, and when Draco chose to gloat about it, an irate seventh year threw him off the moving train as they just happened to be crossing a bridge.
Crabbe and Goyle got thrown off moments later. -Perfect Lionheart's "Partially Kissed Hero"
People say there are two sides to every story, just as there are two sides to every mirror. One side is yours-where you are, what you see. Your reality, really. The other side is anyone else's. but if that's true, which side is the true side-yours, or mine? -Kirra Kills' "Mirror Images"
Yami stalked through Knockturn Alley like a man on a mission... a highly pissed, I've-had-a-bad-day-DON'T-look-at-me-cross-eyed-or-I'll-carve-your-heart-out-with-a-dull-spoon-and-make-you-like-it man on a mission.
Seto would have been proud.
-Lizeth's story "History of Magic"
I got sorted into Gryffindor!
…If you haven't set the letter on fire by now, I applaud you. Nah, not Gryffindor. Slytherin! Dumbles was pretty pissed, I think.
-Harry Potter in Miarix's story "Fighting back"
"AH! SHUN, SAVE ME!"
Ichigo tried to reach for Shunsui, but failed as Gin was wrapped around him like a boa constrictor around its prey. It was not suffocating, nor was it even painful. In fact, the strange man was rubbing his cheek against Ichigo's.
"Nah. I think ya got it handled, Strawberry."
"Shunsui, you ass!"
He scowled as the man in pink turned and walked away, laughing the whole time. His eyelid twitched slightly, especially as Gin seemed to suddenly become dead weight. Ichigo struggled to stay upright.
"Dammit, Gin! Lemme go, you're fucking heavy!"
"But I hafta thank ya!"
"You can thank me better... by letting me go."
The silver-haired taichou seemed to contemplate this, then unwound himself from around Ichigo and stood a few feet back. Ichigo took a few deep breaths and stared at Gin, raising a brow.
"So... it's just you? Ken-chan isn't here to try to kill me?"
"Nah. But if I ain't back soon, he'll kill ya."
"What the hell! Then get back to him! I would rather remain alive, thank you."
"I imagine so... dun think Juu-kun and Shun would 'preciate Ken-chan killin' ya either."
Ichigo nodded sagely and tapped his foot impatiently, watching as the man took his sweet time returning to the eleventh division barracks. The orange-haired shinigami heaved a sigh of relief that was short lived as Shunsui tackled him from behind.
-Shunsui, Ichigo, and Gin in KiyoshiMichi's story "Crawling in the Dark"
"If one person imagines something, it might be a delusion. But when two people imagine something together, it becomes a creation. It gives you the power to change reality!" -Hitomi Yumemi from The Secret Notes of Lady Kanako
xxx-this next quote is in regards to relationships-
"When the good times become surprising, you have an issue." -Kuronue in Sonata Rapp's story "Little Wonders"
"Malik!" she yelled, waving at her brother who was pushing through random groups of people
"Malik?" Harry gaped
"Isis?" Malik turned around
"Isis!" Yugi grinned
"Yugi?" Harry turned
"Harry!" Ryou exclaimed
"Ryou!" Harry said, his voice still full of suprise
"Kaiba?" Isis gave the brown haired boy a curious look
"Isis." Kaiba nodded in acknowledgment
-Isis Ishtar, Harry Potter, Malik Ishtar, Yugi Motou, Ryou Bakura, and Seto Kaiba in Leesy Metallium's story "Fates of the Chosen"
Lavi waggled his eyebrow at Kanda. "Aren't you totally pumped, man?" he asked. "He's, like, British!"
"Wow." Kanda deadpanned. "And Lenalee's Chinese and I'm Japanese and you are American. It's a fucking racist rainbow. Shut the fuck up." -Lavi and Kanda Yuu in Novelist Pup's story "Any Way You Want It"
"You look like a young man who could use a bit more chicken in his life!" -Urahara Kisuke in Nate Grey's story "The Humane Hollow"
Having friends meant emotions, something Fran was unaccustomed to. So, Chrome offered to teach him how to smile.
It was the worst two months of his life.
After that, the emotions came more naturally. Tsuna had said he even looked pretty when he smiled. Then the kid blushed and ran away; the boy ran into a wall, an open locker, Hibari, and a window.
His exits had never been graceful.
Fran later taught him to be stealthy.
Tsuna still sucked at exiting gracefully. -Fran's thoughts in UniversalOverlordess' story "The Diamond in the Midden"
Don't bother running. It's impossible to run away from yourself, no matter how hard you try. -Crown/Crown Clown in Haverstock's story "Innocent Attraction"
"Oh c'mon, 'Mione," Ron said placatingly, "Dumbledore will clear it all up. I'm sure they're having tea and lemon drops right now chatting away like old friends."
"Are you kidding me? No vay in *hell, old man!"
"I think it's a wonderful idea Mr. Elric..."
"I am here to destroy Tom Riddle! Say it vith me! TOM. RIDDLE."
"And this would help greatly-"
"IT IS A STUPID IDEA AND IT SHOULD BURN!"
"There's no reason so be so crass, Mr. Elric."
"Your face is crass!" -Edward Elric and Albus Dumbledore in Takhississ' story "To Settle a Debt"
I am not kidnapping you. I'm just borrowing your body for an undisclosed amount of time. -What the Turks' say when they are accused of being kidnappers in Lord Shinta's story "Donum Deae"
"Sir." Reborn's unspoken question hung in the air, the aura around him angry and viciously cruel, like that of a mother dog that has just watched her puppies be abused. Nono, hands on his cane, glanced at the hitman out of the corner of his eye and thought that the man would make a good role model for young Tsunayoshi.
"I am quite old, Reborn," he began softly, weaving his not-lie quiet well, "and so my eyes are quiet bad. Supposing I'm distracted by something – like a crooked painting in the hallway, well then I guess if someone wanted so badly to get to Iemitsu first and give him a quick lesson in manners, I wouldn't be able to stop them, now would I?"
Reborn's fedora dipped down, but there was no hiding that shark's smile. "No sir, I don't suppose you would. Out of curiosity, just how far away would this crooking painting be in terms of time?"
The old man leaned back, peering up at the ceiling with interest. "Hmm, that's rather hard to say exactly my boy, but if I must put a time on it, then I suppose the one right across from here, about five minutes away. And you know, adding in the two minutes it takes me to get down the stairs and out the door, that's a good seven minutes right there. Of course, this is all just hypothetically." He smiled.
"Of course, sir." Reborn said placidly.
Then Timoteo straightened and headed for the door. "Well, let us go pass judgment on Iemitsu and – oh look a crooked painting."
-Fallen Angel of the Forgotten's story "Courting the Sky
"Come here little… dead rabbit… thing," almost immediately everyone else looked at him with wide eyes as the corpse walked towards him before he lifted it and placed it on his shoulder, "now stay there until I tell you otherwise, okay?" he commanded the snow white and blood red bunny as calmly as he could, earning a small nod of confirmation from the dead mammal.
"Naruto… no corpses at the table," the masked Jōnin ordered, earning a glare from the blond in the process.
"So I'm not allowed at the table anymore? That's called being prejudiced, you sir are a racist treating us corpses like that!" the young corpse's rant rung out amongst the house, earning several sweatdrops from everyone in the building.
-Fenris187's story "Rebirth Through Death"
The human mind is a powerful thing.
...Says the imbodyment of strength and instinct that exists within his mind as a complete, and possibly equal, entity.
Good point. King, I think you have Multiple Personality Disorder.
Are you calling me crazy?
Bad sign when the voice in your head calls you crazy. Also, why is you brain sideways?
-Hollow Ichigo, Zangetsu, and Ichigo in lilyrosa143's story "Beginning Death"
"I think we should stop planning things out. Our 'thought up at the last possible second' stuff seems to work better," Ichigo remarked. He slid the trapdoor's hatch back into place and started shoving every heavy object he could find on top of it.
"I will admit that our plans do have a disturbing tendency to go awry," Ishida agreed.
"And I think our escape plan is about to do the same…" Rukia said. "Do you all feel that? Those two Arrancar down there are not the only ones in Seireitei…"
Rukia was right. The ryoka could detect multiple reiatsu signatures similar to Ichigo's.
"You're quite right about that, Miss Kuchiki. However, my soldiers are not the ones you need to worry about."
Ichigo palmed his face. "I'm not even going to turn around. Rukia? Who snuck up on us this time?"
"…Captain Aizen…" Rukia answered fearfully.
"Of course it is… Any chance of him going away if we pretend we didn't notice him?"
"I'm afraid not," Aizen answered.
"Didn't think so. -Cerokun's story "Not Quite as Planned"
What happened in here?
Nothing happened. This is clearly a setup. Now walk carefully toward the obvious trap in the middle of the room. -Ryou Bakura and Yami Bakura in Snap Change's story "A Persistent Shadow"
Rogers crouched down and looked under the table at Harry in concern. "Harry, are you alright?"
"Yes," was Harry's simple reply. "I have a cactus."
Bruce followed the captain's example and kneeled down next to the large conference table, moving the chairs out of the way, and saw the others doing the same. Harry did indeed have a cactus and was hugging the pot to his chest with one arm, while his other hand idly played with the dirt and his satchel sat in his lap.
"Oh," Rogers said, expression confused and clearly not understanding what the plant had to do with the matter at hand. "...Okay."
"Is that my cactus?" Agent Hill growled.
"Harry," Bruce sighed, mentally shuffling through all the questions this situation garnered, before settling on one. "Why do you have Agent Hill's cactus?" -hctiB-notsoB's story "I See The Moon"
"Not just yet. Can you show me what Thanos is doing?"
"Can I breathe?" Hela rolled her eyes. "Of course. Wait just a minute." She snapped her fingers, and a large flatscreen TV mounted on the wall flickered to life. "Television, television on the wall, show me the the evillest villain of all."
The screen blurred, then focused on a middle-aged, dark haired man seated at a desk, a cup of tea in one hand an a cell phone in the other.
"That's right, Mark. Season three will end with Sherlock driving his car off a cliff. No one will know whether he survives until we release Season four. ...Yes, I do plan on actually writing a Season three. ...Of course, of course. It won't actually come out for another several years, but we'll keep giving tantalizing hints about it. ...What was that? ...I had that idea as well. Which episode would you like to kill Watson in?"
"No, you stupid TV," Hela growled. "Not Steven Moffat. Show me the second evillest villain of all." -Loki and Hela in Sergeant Hiddles' story "With Friends Like These"
"Dean?" Sam Winchester asked, voice muffled from his pillow.
"I think I just got a drunk text from Cas."
"Check it. 'I feel like God wrote up a contract of my life, and I just signed off without reading the fine print. At this point, it's go big or go home.'"
"Oh. Shit. Call Bobby."
"On it." -Dean, Sam, and Castiel in PurpleMoon3's story "Bait and Switch"
"I can't believe you've been secretly dating me for six months without telling me."
-Mike Ross in in_the_bottle's story "A Bit Less Ordinary" on AO3
His fingers tap out a nervous rhythm against his leg and he steals a glance at Harvey, who hasn't moved his head from the window. He can't stay in this cab with Harvey acting this way; he has to do something to help, say something to get that look off of Harvey's face. If he doesn't, the terrorists win.
"I want to go on the record and just say that turtles are heartless bastards."
-Mike Ross in R.C. McLachlan's story "Excerpts from The Gospel of Harvey Specter"
He's still dealing with the red tape when Chilton calls him some time later.
"Why is he back," Chilton complains. "Why does he keep coming back. Can't you just keep him?"
"No," Jack says, scowling down at the three forms that it is apparently necessary to fill out in triplicate when an escaped cannibalistic serial killer murders a rival homicidal maniac on the hood of your agency-issued vehicle in what appears to be some kind of turf war over your pet empath. "I don't want him."
"And when did he have time to stop for food?"
"Just don't eat anything he offers you," he says practically. "Then you won't have anything to worry about."
The phone is barely back in the receiver before it rings again.
"This room is full of Furbies," Beverly says in a crazed voice. "I can't tell if they're a courting gift or an advancing army or a formal curse or what. Send help."
Jack is too busy to send help, but he figures Will must like the damned things, so he does make time to contribute another Furby to the cause.

Dear Mr. Potter,
We are happy to inform you, that the kidnapping you have requested is well within our available services, and we shall conduct this event sometime within the next few days, likely outside of daylight hours. We regret to inform you, however, that our establishment is only able to hold prisoners for a period of no more than one weeks time, after which we shall have to cut the aforementioned kidnapping short.

It’s a funny thing, travelling. Sometimes you don’t even realise you’re doing it, ‘til you look back. At the time, you’re just there in the moment, drinking in the experience. My boy there – he thinks he’s never been anywhere and he’s got no idea how far he’s come.- Spike in Sparrow2000's story "Perceptions" on spanderfiles.com
Repost this if you believe homophobia is wrong
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love
Mummy...Johnny brought a gun to school
He told his friends that it was cool
And when he pulled the trigger back
It shot with a great crack
Mummy I was a good girl
I did what I was told
I went to school, I got straight A's, I even got the gold
But mummy when I went to school that day, I never said goodbye
I'm sorry mummy I had to go, but mommy please don't cry
When Johnny shot the gun he hit me and another
And all because he got the gun from his older brother
Mummy please tell daddy that I love him very much
And please tell Chris, my boyfriend, that it wasn't just a crush
And tell my little sister that she is the only one now
And tell my dear sweet grandmother that I'll be waiting for her now
And tell my wonderful friends that they were always the best
Mummy I'm not the first I'm no better than the rest
Mummy tell my teachers I won't show up for class
And never to forget this and please don't let this pass
Mummy why'd it have to be me no one deserves this
Mummy warn the others, mummy I left without a kiss
And mummy tell the doctors I know they really did try
I think I even saw a doctor trying not to cry
Mummy I'm slowly dying with a bullet in my chest
But mummy please remember I'm in heaven with the rest
Mummy I ran as fast as I could when I heard that crack
Mummy listen to me if you would
I wanted to go to college
I wanted to try things that were new
I guess I'm not going with daddy
On that trip to the new zoo
I wanted to get married
I wanted to have a kid
I wanted to be an actress
Mummy I wanted to live
But mummy I must go now
The time is getting late
Mummy tell my Chris
I'm sorry but I had to cancel the date
I love you mummy I always have
I know you know it's true
Mummy all I wanted to say is "mummy I love you"
In memory of the Columbine students that were lost
Please if you would
Pass this around I'd be happy if you could
Don't smash this on the ground
If you pass this on
Maybe people will cry
Just keep this in heart
For the people that didn't get to say "goodbye"
