Broken Picture Telephone

Recommended by one of the fic-writeres I traditionally stalk in LJ, Broken Picture Telephone - The Game of Miscommunication. Hilarious idea, you need to search around a bit, separate the wheat from the chaff, but all in all worth browsing.

Sorry, just a quote

From an odd fic, in the Eroica fandom but featuring the characters' previous lives (sorta), called Lives Lived, Part 2, by Jeanne Johnson:

"Mortal," the god said in his ear, but all he could see was the wave of golden hair like the wheatfields of Apuleia dancing before his eyes. "Mortal, you climbed my mountain. You entered my sanctuary. You bathed in my waters. Now you shall climb my peak again while I enter your sanctuary and bathe in your waters. Fair's fair, after all," the god added, reasonably.

Hello myself! (in more ways than one)

Sth to tide me over till I stop sitting on my butt and post properly. Not the only great quote I've read since the last one I put up here, but the one that made me want to do it again.
From one of Romaine's Advent Drabbles, in the Possession of the Heart universe:

'Stockings are usually hung by the chimney,' Harry noted as he tugged the boots off.
'I thought they'd look better over your shoulders.'
