"CG: OH MY GOD ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS
GG: i only ever fuck seriously, karkat.
CG: OH MY GOD
CG: OH MY GOD NEVER SAY THAT TO ME AGAIN.”

—Karkat and Jade from Even If Your Hope Has Burned With Time, chapter 1

“I have the Shang Seal of Manly Approval, and I’m betting you don’t. Thus, I am more a man than you, despite my lack of the dangly bits that you seem so very fond of talking about. Tell me, are you compensating for something?”

– Dave from Redux3, chapter 1

"I think," she muses, "We test ourselves. What the game left us."

.”I think,” you tell her, “We’re so used to the world breaking for us that we don’t remember what it’s like for us to be what’s broken.”
—Jane and Dave from All That’s Left In The World

“"Yeah?" Sam asked, and Dean said, "Yeah," barely recognizing his own voice. Sam moved, and all of a sudden Dean was straining for it like it was something he’d wanted his whole fucking life, rocking up into it, every thrust, catching Sam’s mouth whenever he could and only breaking off for air. And fuck, he needed air, gasping like crazy and he still couldn’t get enough, their hips riding together hard and fast, and Jesus, it was even more wrong to want this than it was to be getting it, and he did anyway.”

– Sam and Dean from Road to Shambala

“I think maybe… it’s worth it, to take the hit? Better to get hurt, when you know it can’t stop you for long, and just keep fighting for what you want?” Yet again, it isn’t trusting that Joshua won’t hurt him, but trusting that it’s going to be worth it, that Shibuya’s important enough that Neku can take the crap and work it out somehow. So now he knows Mr. H did some stuff, and yeah it still hurts but he’s gonna keep going and get through it. He’s gonna roll with whatever happens, and try to be the bigger man and so yeah now Kariya’s looking at him like he just declared himself the Fairy Princess of the Moon People.

“Yeah, okay. Optimism is for stupid people, I know. So now what?”

– Neku and Kariya from Signal to Noise: Boy with a Coin, part 21

“But then you … reacted." Draco shrugged, his shoulder squeezing up against Harry’s arm. "And I realized … I…." He bit his lip. His eyes finally met Harry’s, and he swallowed hard, then spoke quickly. "You don’t have to lose for me to win; I just have to win.”

– Draco from Whispers

“Dean had always been both smart and observant. Took John a lot of years after his talk with Jim to realize Dean had learned that from him too — that there was strength in being needed, in having to be there for someone, in choosing to be there for the people you loved. It took a lot of strength when maybe what you wanted to do was run.”

– Dean from Second Sight

Uther gave him a small smile and clasped his shoulder. “I know this is overwhelming, Arthur. We thought we would have more time to prepare ourselves. Just remember who you are—prince of your people, and a great king to be.”

"King of nothing," Arthur answered. He knew the fear showed in his eyes, the bitterness in his voice, but for once he could not bring himself to care.

"That will never be true," Uther returned, fierce and regal as a king should be.

– Uther and Arthur from It’s not the end of the world (but you can see it from here), part 4

“"No, fuck you and your masturbatory blather, I am goddamned talking here." Kankri’s eyes widen in outrage but you’ve finally found all the words your abject shock had stolen from you these past perigees, and like hell are you going to stop now.”

– Karkat and Kankri from Overthinking It
