Her calluses are also your calluses

EKO:  “If you don’t mind, I will begin at the beginning.”

[Locke makes gesture to go ahead]

LOCKE:  “Boy, when you say ‘beginning,’ you mean…’beginning.’”

Guys, look in your hearts and answer this question honestly- what’s more likely? That someone in this group doesn’t belong in this group or ghosts? If we have to choose between turning on each other or pinning it on some specter with unfinished, pen-related business, I’m sorry, but my money’s on ghost.

"When she’s unhappy, I’m less happy."

"You deserve happiness."

"Oh, I’m happy!" "Then I’m happy."

"I want you to know that I really want you to be happy."

"Thus goes every one to the world but I, and I am sunburnt; I may sit in a corner and cry heigh-ho for a husband."

"Lady Beatrice, I will get you one."

"I would rather have one of your father’s getting. Hath your grace ne’er a brother like you?"

"Will you have me, my lady?"

"No, my lord…unless I might have another for working days. Your grace is too costly to wear every day. But I beseech your grace, pardon me; I was born to speak all mirth and no matter."

"Your silence most offends me, and to be merry best becomes you; for, out of question, you were born in a merry hour."

"No, sure my lord, my mother cried. But then there was a star danced, and under that was I born."

8) Is there a fairy tale or folk tale that you crave adaptations of?

While there are actually several really great adaptations of *The Snow Queen* (not counting *Frozen* as a great adaptation although I did enjoy the film), I would love to see a few really good interpretations. I think a retelling of either “The Wild Swans” and/or “The Six Swans” might be interesting.

I loved your answers, thanks for doing the meme! Have you read Daughter of the Forest, Juliet Marillier’s retelling of The Six Swans? (I haven’t read it since high school and don’t remember much, but the vivid physical descriptions of the transformations, and the sister’s tasks, have stayed with me since then in a satisfyingly creepy way.) 

Thanks for tagging me! I haven’t read this book yet! It’s been added to the “to read” list.
