Some crazy lady was going to cut _your heart out_ and you wanted more specific instructions? Perhaps you'd want it in writing - or a diagram, maybe?

You just said 'home'! If you'd wanted me to think of *your* home you should have said!

#qt1873641-3 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 4 of 85 / Next>

Well you stupid cow! What did you think of your home for?

#qt1873641-2 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 5 of 85 / Next>

What did *I* do? What did *you* do? 'Think of home'? That was a GREAT plan! You thought of your home and I thought of mine and now we're halfway between the two!

It's an enchanted chain. I'll only be free when she dies. Sorry.

<Prev / Quote 7 of 85 / Next>

I'm a princess. Tricked into being a witch's slave. Will you liberate me?

_Hold_ on tight, the Captain's at the helm!

<Prev / Quote 9 of 85 / Next>

You look like the wrong end of a dog. And I swear, if I don't get my Tristan back as he was, I'll be your personal poltergeist!

#qt0510433-2 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 10 of 85 / Next>

Would I be correct in thinking that you can neither see nor hear me? Then I'd like to tell you that you smell of pee.

<Prev / Quote 11 of 85 / Next>

I can't believe your crew fell for that. And where in God's name did you get that mannequin?

#qt0508854 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 12 of 85 / Next>

Why would I want this? It's just a measly handful of stardust.

Humphrey. Humphrey, it's all right. She's all yours. You really are a perfect couple. The best of luck to you both.

I'm afraid that's impossible. I'm on a quest of enormous importance.

If Septimus insists on sending a boy to do a man's job...

Have you not got it into your thick head yet? I'm not walking anywhere!

#qt0508561 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 17 of 85 / Next>

Of course I know why I'm glowing. I'm a star! And what the stars do best?

#qt0484616-3 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 18 of 85 / Next>

You must learn to control them. You've been glowing more brightly every day and I think you know why.

#qt0484616-2 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 19 of 85 / Next>

Have no fear, no-one on this vessel will harm you, but there are plenty who would... Your emotions give you away, Yvaine.

<Prev / Quote 20 of 85 / Next>

There was not a horse or beast he could not master. So much so that in his youth, he took to riding a camel... which was comical.

Unless you wish to meet him in the afterlife, I suggest you answer my question. What are you doing here?

#qt0484611 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 22 of 85 / Next>

Let's see if you can work it out for yourself. What do stars do?

#qt0484608-2 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 23 of 85 / Next>

You know you sort of - glitter sometimes. I've just noticed it. Is it... Is it normal?

#qt0484608-1 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 24 of 85 / Next>

Has excessive begging or pleading ever persuaded me to spare the life of a traitor?

#qt0484607-4 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 25 of 85 / Next>

Sire, I've merely relayed to you what the runes have told me. I can do no more.

#qt0484607-3 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 26 of 85 / Next>

South you said. South we went. Still no stone. Do you now propose we start swimming?

Your Highness, the soothsayer, as you requested.

#qt0484607-1 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 28 of 85 / Next>

But of course! Nothing says 'romance' like the gift of a kidnapped injured woman! I'm not going anywhere with you!

#qt0484606-5 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 29 of 85 / Next>

Now, if I'm not mistaken this means you have to come with me. You're going to be a birthday gift for Victoria, my true love.

#qt0484606-4 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 30 of 85 / Next>

No, really. We're in a crater, this must be where it fell.

#qt0484606-3 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 31 of 85 / Next>

Oh, excuse me, madam, sorry, this may see strange but, have you seen a fallen star anywhere?

I find the fastest way to travel is by candlelight.

Nobody crosses the wall! You know that! Everybody knows that.

<Prev / Quote 37 of 85 / Next>

Oh. You do look a bit like your father. And I suppose you intend to cross the wall as well, do you? Well you can forget it - go home!

<Prev / Quote 38 of 85 / Next>

Mmm... Murdered by pirates. Heart torn out and eaten. Meet Victoria. I can't quite decide which sounds more fun...

#qt0484599-4 / read by Shuja-34

<Prev / Quote 39 of 85 / Next>

Well... Look, Yvaine, you'll understand when you meet her, all right? If we don't get murdered by pirates first.

<Prev / Quote 40 of 85 / Next>

Hang on! This wasn't about me buying her love. This was a way for me to prove to her how I felt.

#qt0484599-2 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 41 of 85 / Next>

The little I know about love is that it's unconditional. It's not something you can buy.

#qt0484599-1 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 42 of 85 / Next>

It's all right, Captain. We always knew you were a whoopsie.

#qt0484598 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 43 of 85 / Next>

And risk you being too embarrassed to keep saying such lovely things?

#qt0484596-2 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 44 of 85 / Next>

But... You were a mouse! You were a mouse... you wanted cheese! You didn't... I asked you to give me a sign!

There's no time to waste. A coach is coming. By any means possible you must get on it. Run!

<Prev / Quote 46 of 85 / Next>

They tricked her, cared for her, and when her heart was once more aglow they cut it from her chest and ate it.

#qt0484595-3 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 47 of 85 / Next>

No star is safe in Stormhold. The _last_ one fell 400 years ago and was captured by the same witches _who seek Yvaine now_.

#qt0484595-2 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 48 of 85 / Next>

Yvaine is in grave danger. A unicorn came to help her, but now they're heading into a trap.

<Prev / Quote 50 of 85 / Next>

I can get you one of them, actually. Very good guard dogs. They can watch the back and the front door at the same time.

#qt0484592-2 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 51 of 85 / Next>

You'd better be telling the truth, you two-faced dog.

#qt0484592-1 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 52 of 85 / Next>

Hundreds of years this wall's been here. Hundreds of years this gap's been under a twenty-four-hour guard.

#qt0484591-2 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 53 of 85 / Next>

I'm charged with guarding the portal to another world, and you're asking me to just let you through!

#qt0484591-1 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 54 of 85 / Next>

.. when you finish wrestling with your conscience, may I suggest you return to your chamber. Leave the quest for the stone to me.

And trust me Tristan, you're no shop boy. You saved my life. Thank you.

#qt0484585-7 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 59 of 85 / Next>

There are shop boys, and there are boys who just happen to work in a shop for the time being.

<Prev / Quote 60 of 85 / Next>

If there's one thing I've learned about all my years watching Earth, is that people aren't what they may seem.

I just thought I'd find some lump of celestial rock, take it home and that would be it.

#qt0484585-4 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 62 of 85 / Next>

A shop boy like me... I could never have imagined an adventure this big in order to wish for it.

#qt0484585-3 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 63 of 85 / Next>

You ever heard the expression 'Be careful of what you wish for'?

#qt0484585-2 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 64 of 85 / Next>

You know, it's funny. I used to watch... I used to watch people having adventures. I envied them.

And, Yvaine, I have some lovely dresses; take your pick.

<Prev / Quote 67 of 85 / Next>

I mean, even if I could... Everlasting life? I imagine it would be kind of lonely. Well, maybe if you had someone to share it with. Someone you loved. Then it might be different.

#qt0484582-2 / read by Shuja-34

<Prev / Quote 68 of 85 / Next>

Are you tempted? By Immortality. Let's say it wasn't *my* heart. Not me. Just a star you didn't know.

<Prev / Quote 69 of 85 / Next>

And they still live happily ever after.

When their children and grandchildren were grown, it was time to light the Babylon Candle.

#qt0484581-2 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 71 of 85 / Next>

They ruled for 80 years. But no man can live forever, except he who possesses the heart of a star, and Yvaine had given hers to Tristan completely.

#qt0484581-1 / read by Shuja-34

<Prev / Quote 72 of 85 / Next>

Pointless, really... 'Do the stars gaze back?' Now *that's* a question.

#qt0484579-2 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 73 of 85 / Next>

A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?'

And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange - no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion.

<Prev / Quote 75 of 85 / Next>

My heart... feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it's trying to escape because it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you.

#qt0484578-8 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 76 of 85 / Next>

What I'm trying to say, Tristan is... I think I love you. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I'd know it for myself.

#qt0484578-7 / read by Shuja-34

<Prev / Quote 77 of 85 / Next>

But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing ...

#qt0484578-6 / read by Narmadha-83

<Prev / Quote 78 of 85 / Next>

So yes, I know that love is unconditional.

#qt0484578-5 / read by Shriram-60
