Fanfiction fest pimping (first time)

Hehe, I'm not that much into AS/S, I'm more partial to H/D myself, but this idea is so perfectly round (I think that's a transference mistake there!), that I *had* to post this. I might even think of a prompt.

In her latest fic Lomonaaeren quoted this poem, and it's so good I *had* to post it. For the interesting background story, I stole this from Wikipedia.

William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Spectacular. Electrifying. My kind of thing, in other words.

Fitting description

Reading on the "Slap-Slap-Kiss" trope here, found this quote from "The Horse and his Boy" (which I haven't read, but think is one of the Narnia books):

Aravis also had many quarrels (and, I'm afraid, even fights) with Cor, but they always made it up again: so that years later, when they were grown up, they were so used to quarreling and making it up again that they got married so as to go on doing it more conveniently.
