    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Get up,” he said, not unkindly. “You’re leaving this room now.”

    “Are you taking me away to die?” she asked.

    He winced slightly. People didn’t like it when she spoke frankly, but what was the point in pretending? “I’m taking you to another place.”

    Asha noted the careful way he had chosen his words, and that he hadn’t said no.

    This is a gorgeous, thoughtful take on the House and what it does.

    But I want to know what he knows
    I want to touch what he touched
    Call me by his name

    James Kirk doesn't believe in no-win scenarios.

    “Senator Knope,” says the woman in the red hat, “would you care to comment on the fact you appear to be the first presidential candidate in a hundred and fifty years to come out in opposition to childhood literacy?"

    “Fuck,” April and Ben say together.

    I'm not saying I want sitcom characters to be real people much less in charge of national government, but I would like a world in which someone who loves as openly as Leslie Knope were in charge.

    “Oh no,” said Selena.

    I gave her a look indicating that this was not, perhaps, quite the welcome I had hoped.

    I desire only to have my lawyer friends tell me hilarious stories about cases and to be smug about how I Know Things Because Scholarship Is My Mistress.

    "...and then Gail gave me the magic version of The Talk, and also I have a date."

    "A date!" Alyssa straightened, knocking stray essays to the floor. "A date, he says, after leading with half an hour of magic party tricks." She was sitting on the sofa, cross-legged, the essays she was grading in her lap and in a pile next to her.

    "Excuse me for thinking the supernatural is slightly more interesting than my love life."

    Alyssa twirled her pen. "You know what I want to know? If magic is real, why do people who mess with it act like it's a kink instead of, I don't know, trying to transmute lead into gold or achieve immortality?"

    Some really interesting worldbuilding.
