    Summary

    Usually a Chrestomanci was born with nine lives. Sometimes they lost a few either in everyday life, between worlds, or protecting the realms from nefarious magical use. But those nine tend to always come in handy because Chrestomanci were always powerful (how could they not be with so many lives?) and so they held a lot of responsibility - were often in danger.

    Christopher had 27.

    The first time he told Millie this, Christopher, himself, hadn’t seemed to understand exactly what that meant. But she had. It helped perhaps, that she had been contemplating for so long, and with such focus, what happened at the end of her time as the Living Asheth. But she knew instantly that more lives for Christopher would only mean more deaths in the end. (Living Asheths became dead young women, as the portent showed.)

    It was the balance of such things.

    Summary

    Because what Bob and Helen Parr weren’t aware of was that Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack had been working for the government, as a sort of specialty team, since they hit adulthood (a bit before for Jack-Jack if they were being honest) and their handler made sure they were always paid for their work.

    Summary

    But things had gotten worse, their cruelty increased – and Cinderella did not wish to ignore it and simply live like this the rest of her life. She would go to the Ball tonight, against their wishes, and these clothes now served as the alternative - she couldn’t use Mother’s gown, so she would go in her Father’s suit.

    And, perhaps that meant, she would go as a man.

    Summary

Knows well that she cannot take being second in some man’s favor (even when first is not another living being), and be happy in her life.

    Summary

    “There is a place – another dimension – that does not view prophesy in the same manner we have done. There is no inevitability – they fight the Fates. And,” she looked positively dumfounded, “they have often won.”

    Summary

    Summary

    The meadow is long and flat, filled with nothing but perfect thorn-less red roses that, quite soon, become utterly boring in their identical beauty.

    She even comes to wish for thorns - wants the prick of pain so she can feel something to break up the monotony.

    It is with these sorts of thoughts, and her imagination wandering, that she discovers this world is able to bend to her will. That within this dream she is living, she can both do whatever she wants and make whatever she wishes.

    Summary

    Summary

    "You saw some girl? And she stole your backpack?" he asks Danny again, still feeling a bit irritated at getting woken up, so abruptly, after barely haven slept any. "What, you think this kid is just living with them in the woods or something? Are we talking "Call of the Wild", here?" Jack asked, only half sarcastically.

    Summary

    Han and Chewie flew together for years, for years they were the only important people in each other’s world. Just because she was married to the man, why would she try to put herself between them, her bond above theirs? Why would she even want to try and do such a thing?

    Summary

    "Concerns about accountability, if she (a mere twelve year old school girl) were to be harmed by such volatile creatures, had come up and started to muddy that waters of what had initially been a jovial working relationship. So, instead of pushing and insisting that she knew what she was doing – that she knew far more than many ever gave her credit for; that finding and protecting rare beings was her life, that she had been working at her parent’s knees in research and journalism for her entire existence – Luna simply told her Father to go on without her. That she would be alright spending Christmas at Hogwarts alone."

    Summary

    "And oh, she likes that face he makes, seconds after the cut, when the air hits it. But she loves looking up and seeing Bobby watching her so filled with fascination, lust, and pride."
