If I go with him,” she said, her voice low and shaking with the thing she did not want to say but had to, “will you put me in the factory with the Yelenas?”“Yes,” he growled, “yes, I will put you there and turn out the light in your eyes and come to stare at you for centuries, to pore over you, because you are m i n e , my treasure, my hoard, and I cannot k e e p y o u and I cannot l e t y o u g o .” - (Deathless, Catherynne M.

“Love is…” An old memory with Adrian came back to me, and some of the turbulent emotion I always carried within me these days welled up in my chest. It was stupid, feeling so lovesick when he’d been gone less than a day, but I couldn’t get him or the ways he described love out of my head. “… a flame in the dark. A breath of warmth on a winter’s night. A star that guides you home.” (insp [x])

(GREEK MYTHOLOGY series):
Medusa, meaning “guardian, protectress” was a Gorgon, a chthonic female monster. Of the three mythological Gorgon sisters (Euryale, Medusa and Stheno), Medusa was the only mortal one.Originally Medusa was a very beautiful maiden with luscious and soft hair. She grew up and became a priestess in one of goddess Athena’s temples. Like all priestesses she was bound by an eternal oath of chastity. Poseidon (“God of the Sea”) saw the beautiful Medusa one day and raped her in Athena’s temple. The goddess, enraged by the fact, could not harm Poseidon and so she unleashed her rage on Medusa. She punished Medusa by turning her into a horrifying monster, with hair made from snakes and the ability to turn onlookers into stone. As further punishment Athena exiled Medusa to an island on the western edge of the world, were she awaited her fate. Years passed and eventually Perseus showed up with a magic shield that was given to him by Athena to slay the poor girl- by chopping off her head. From her headless neck sprung out Pegasus, a winged horse and a giant with a gold sword named Chrysaor. It is said that these were the children of Poseidon trapped inside the monstress due to her punishment.
Perseus used Medusa’s head as a weapon during subsequent battles prior to returning to Athena. Athena then took the head from Perseus and threw it into her shield where it remained.

I looked up at him, not quite believing. “Safe?”
"Safe. But I can promise this too. You are a soldier. You could be my greatest soldier. And if you stay, if you can endure this, one day all will know it.”His face grew serious. “I can promise you safety,” he said. “Or I can promise to see your suffering repaid a thousandfold.” With the pad of his thumb, he brushed a stray tear from beneath my eye."You decide, Genya." - (The Tailor, Leigh Bardugo)
Gansey, she warned, but she felt unstable and dangerous.
I just want to pretend, Gansey said, the words misting on her skin. I want to pretend that I could.
The Blue in the vision closed her eyes. Maybe it wouldn’t hurt if I kiss you, he said. Maybe it’s only if you kiss me—
