"The one thing I never wanted her to be was the token female who was just scared and everyone was protecting. She doesn’t need protecting. The first time you see her she has a machete, which I think is really cool. She’s tough, she holds her own and she also wants to find answers and she wants to know why she’s here." – Kaya Scodelario on Teresa, The Maze Runner.

“It occurred to me that there was a story behind the scar, and the fact that everyone had a story behind some mark on their inside or outside suddenly exhausted me, the gravity of all those untold pasts.”
– Maggie Stiefvater, Forever. (via underallthis)

We all know the story. Virginal girl, pure and sweet, trapped in the body of a swan. She desires freedom but only true love can break the spell. Her wish is nearly granted in the form of a prince, but before he can declare his love her lustful twin, the black swan, tricks and seduces him. Devastated the white swan leaps of a cliff killing herself and, in death, finds freedom.

I don’t like being the center of attention…I don’t like opening my birthday presents in front of people, either.
