Then the ingenious Christina said this on Twitter:
@AlyssaC_HK Also psst if you ever decided to do a quote wallpaper blog series or something, it would be the best thing. :D— christina im (@_christinaim) July 7, 2015
First, I shall share my excerpt:
“We lost that currency [of surprise] at the harbour.” His uncle spoke more quietly than Thomas, but made Aisha turn her eyes to him. “Thomas has a point. And we always wanted Kim’s friendship.”
“Why do we need her friendship?” Thomas asked. “She is legally bound to consider our petition.”
Aisha shrugged in response, then said to Ramzi, “The chances of her betraying Mallister are too slim. We don’t want to let her see our full strength. I’m certainly not parading Thomas in front of her.”
“Meaning no offence, mother, but I can parade myself. I will not stand aside while you scheme to avenge my father.”
I tag these people for the 777 challenge, mainly for the completely unaltruistic pleasure of reading their stuff:
- Cait @ Paper Fury: please please please do this because Tremolo is a gift to humanity and needs to be shared
- Topaz @ Six Impossible Things: I know you don't do tags, so no pressure, but oh it would be glorious if I could read more of your words.
- Aimee @ To the Barricade: Just keep writing and breaking my heart. That is all.
- AnQi @ moonbeams in a jar: your contest-winning Pinterest boards have such glorious premises.
Christina's cover over at her design shop. This poster is an experiment and I think it could do with some tweaking, but I picked up a couple of stray GIMP techniques making this one.
And one last not-quite quote poster:
|he wanted a fairytale and the stars snatched his father.|
If Matryoshka catches your fancy, to be sure to watch this space for Snazzy Snippets on September 10th where I'll share more sneak peeks! And for the chance to read it in full, join my takeout army to receive monthly letters from moi!
Favourite quote and/or poster here? OH, and if I joined Ello and posted these, would you follow me?
